The new space system has successfully launched and the initial problems have been taken care of. I’m sure there are more problems lurking somewhere that will rear their heads someday, but for now the transition is complete.
We’re still on track to return to focusing on plot by the end of August, though there will be some buildup first before we have a new scheduled event. We’ll be using this buildup time to attempt to expand the player population. This still requires some preparation, but we’ll let you know when we’re getting started.
In preparation for this, most of our time lately has been spent on the early portion of the game, including the Mentor system, a new set of newbie quests, and a new early half-tier of battlesuits. But not to worry, we also recognize the need to add to the mid- to late-game and we have some plans for that.
And finally, we’ve added a new builder! This person will be helping to expand the new space stations into actual places, and will also be addressing player housing soon. So that will be an exciting time for all.
September should be a month of new players, new plot twists, and new additions to the game, and with the server situation stabilized and population on its way back up, it’s a great time to get back into the game! We’ll need the assistance of our veteran players to make the next month go smoothly!
