Hello everyone! I'm going to post this up a little early, as things will be winding down here at the office for the rest of the month. It has been quite the year, and while there is still much to do, I am looking forward to the first real vacation of 2015. With all that said, let's begin!
Winter 2015 Earlier this month we kicked off our 2015 winter holiday event, which can be read about here. Be sure to help Santa Leet, hunt down Father Time, and bite into a Gingerleet while you still can!
Also during this holiday season, it's still possible to take advantage of our membership offer. Buy a 3, 6, or 12 plan and you will be awarded with some extra months, and some Dust Brigade Parasite armor! This offer is only available until January 5th.
The Reck This month has been mostly devoted towards the continued development and polish of The Reck. After some further consideration, and based on some collected feedback, The Reck will be a playfield that is open for everyone, but the quest content will still be aimed at level 90-160 players.
The bulk of this month has been devoted to working with the monster camps around the playfield, adding some dyna encounters, and fleshing out the background quests to help expedite leveling while directing traffic to different areas throughout the playfield. Keeping with the current schedule, I hope to have The Reck on Testlive early January, with a targeted Live release at the end of January.
Systems Changes & QoL Improvements It has become abundantly clear that there are some issues with the current state of certain nanos/abilities/professions. During January, in addition to finishing The Reck, I plan to address some of the most glaring issues. Planned balance changes, bug fixes, or QoL changes that I cannot fit in January, will be moved to February. Going forward, I will try to give these sorts of issues more focus and attention.
Thank You It is hard to believe 2015 is already over. It has been a fun and challenging time, giving way to a whole new set of goals and objectives in 2016. Thank you everyone who helped make this year great, and I'll see you in 2016!
