First we want to wish everyone a Happy New Year and we sincerely hope you all have a great 2019. I’m sure you have all read the patch notes by now but I usually like to include a small update on our plans and progress with each patch. This is the last patch before we transition to a more consistent bi-monthly (twice a month) patch schedule. We are restarting the servers to push a hotfix that addresses some of the issues from todays update (plus a bonus). These notes have been added to the original patch notes.
Progress on the Frozen Tundra patch teased in the last newsletter is coming along nicely however we know there is a strong need for more room for mid-end game players to hunt and that needs to be addressed as soon as possible. We’ve decided push up the release of a feature from our upcoming Frozen Tundra Patch to address this very problem; Miphon is preparing a meaty development blog with all the details on what this update will entail.
Many of you noticed we quietly updated the Steam store release date. We only did this because the date was looming and we have not quite settled on a final date for the “real” Steam store launch. We will get into more details about this in a future update.
One final thing I wanted to address is our GMs live server policy. Many of you have seen that our GMs are making their way into the world and helping folks out as best they can. Citadel Studios has a strict policy regarding what our GMs can and can not do in game. I would like to remind everyone that we do not offer customer support through PMs in Discord. Please stick to the Help Report and Bug Report in game systems so these things flow through the right channels.
Thanks everyone for your continued support. We really enjoy watching everyone really settle into Celador on their respective servers. Keep the feedback rolling in and we’ll keep doing our best to make Legends of Aria the best persistent world sandbox game ever made!
