We had a restart on Sunday, so we didn't perform a restart on Tuesday. There also wasn't a patch this week, but there will be one next week on Tuesday, April 9th.
I'll update this post on the weekend with a planned time and some notes about what you can expect to see in Patch 62.
Today we performed our 2nd weekly maintenance. We were a few hrs later than expected due to differing time zones and lack of sleep.
While the server was down, we made significant adjustments to various server software components. After some extensive investigation, we discovered that there was a memory leak caused by some compatibility issues with some versions of server components. We've since upgraded those versions as needed to hopefully improve compatibility and reduce lag.
We believe we've repaired the Hall of Excellence rankings.
Autoroute has been improved significantly.
BL9 has had further adjustments to the rates.
-There were only 2/4 of the different types of "books" dropping from the bosses. Now all 4 will drop, with the rate for the 2 missing books being pulled from the other 2 books.
-Primordial Seal, Medal, and Jade have been added at low rates.
-Badges have had their rates reduced.
-Spiritual Covenant rate has been increased
-Monkey Coin rate has been slightly reduced with Monkey Coin Pack added with a low rate.
Similar improvements are coming to lower levels of BL soon.
The quest you receive when you complete BL has had some changes.
-You may now receive 4 Ancient Blood Seal, 2 Ancient Blood Jade, or 2 Ancient Blood Charm.
-The completion quest will now also reward 10 Banana Peels.
Inferna has had some tweaks to the rates because MCP was dropping higher than intended.
Travelers Parcel 4, 5, and 6 have returned. The longer you stay online, the more you'll be rewarded.
This is our first weekly patch. We've decided that we'll begin having weekly maintenance on Tuesdays, and if there is any content ready to apply in a patch, then it will be applied while down.
-Recently, we performed our first character transfer. Right now we're doing this on a case by case basis. If you, for some reason, believe you need this service. Contact us in our ticket support system for more information and a quote.
-Custom Title Purchase has returned! You can pick your own color and text. I don't know the maximum length but I'll find out for you soon! Soon, you will be issued one free revision, just in case the title doesn't look the way you want it to.
-All previously purchased Custom Titles will be issued a free revision soon. Custom title price has not changed, but the method of delivery has. We have built a new system that will speed up delivery and improve tracking of the Custom Title you order.
-Soon, we will begin to issue custom titles with backgrounds and art like this one: .
-Multiple changes to the website including improved mail logs, event system changes, and preparation for new features.
-More sale functions added to website.
-Fixed issue with email confirmation for changing email address.
-Banana Coupons have been added to the Banana Shop in denominations of 150, 250, 500, and 1000.
-Daily Sign-in Rewards will restart again on the 21st at 00:00. The rewards have not changed, but the cost for late sign-in has been reduced from 420 Jaden...
Maintenance has been completed. Please let us know if you notice any lag or delays by using the `.lag` chatbot command ingame. So far everything looks to be improved.
Tcholok is doing major maintenance on the server (started about two hours ago), which will hopefully negate any further lag being experienced on the server.
Stay tuned for further announcements.
It's that time of year again. Daylight savings! At 2am tonight North American players will lose an hour as clocks jump forward to 3am.
The server runs in a European timezone so server time will not be changing until March 31st. Until then, those who experience daylight savings time tonight will see a 1 hour different in server time relative to their timezone.
After March 31st the time offset between North Americans and the server will return to normal.
