Right now we have the "destroyed" Sunstream in place, should we keep it? Change it? Let us know.

News / Re: Performance Issues on New Host
« on: January 21, 2019, 11:33:09 am »
Starting around 2-3am EST (GMT - 5) the new host started experiencing performance issues leading to connectivity troubles, lag, and dcs. I'm working on diagnosing and resolving the issues now and we'll update this post when they are resolved.

Status Update The primary issue seems to be realms crashing which we are working to diagnose the cause. If a realm crashes, the players on that realm will be disconnected and may experience a short rollback. After that you will get a "This account is currently logged in and locked down" message for a few minutes as the realm reboots after which you can log back in.

I know how frustrating this is and I'm working as quickly as possible to resolve it. Hang in there.

2nd Status Update 1/21/2019 - 11:30 EST

A server component crashed in the middle of the night and resulted in users being unable to log in or play the game.

We've rebuilt the component that we're having issues with and are now in the process of transferring data to the SSD and scaling out hardware, it should be a few more minutes before we have it up and running again.

We've made significant updates to the server with this move and rebuilt everything basically from scratch. This may resolve the underlying issues we're seeing with the realms crashing.

Polls / Re: Bodhi Seed Poll (read desc)
« on: January 15, 2019, 12:12:34 pm »
I think its best for us to use the Seed once per charr, this will limit imbalance on the basis of who has more to spend and who cant.
once would mean if u made a bad choice the first time on your stones u have a chance to rectify that mistake.
and if u want an op tank stone, u can do that too. however if the stone can be used multiple times it would mean people have an opportunity to create tank stone specific to classes and anti affinity stones,, the possibilities would be endless and no one wants to play a game where u dont have a clear Goal as to what it means to be "OP" .
Limiting the use to 1 will maintain balance but still give a chance for people to rectify old mistakes
Thank you :)

What about people that purchase faction changes? Would it be fair to say those people probably need new stones most of the time?

Polls / Bodhi Seed Poll (read desc)
« on: January 15, 2019, 11:58:07 am »
We want to know a little bit more about Bodhi Seed before we decide if it will be available for purchase, the price, and the difficulty of obtaining this item.

We've been told that some players have concerns about the ability to effectively have unlimited custom soulstones. Personally, I find that confusing because that seems to be the point of having it. I'd like for the community to provide me more feedback about this item.

The price may be determined by this poll. I won't lie to you, right now I am thinking of recommending a price of 200 - 300 Bananas, noting that this will also be available for 20x that in Banana Peels found in-game, in lottos, and in rewards. Feel free to recommend a price if you disagree, or let us know if you agree in the comments below.

The first option means we just add it to the shop. Simple.

The second one is a bit more work, but would ultimately only allow you to obtain X amount of Bodhi Seeds per character. You would be able to trade them still, but even if you obtained one that was traded from another user, you wouldn't be able to use it. You would just be refunded for it if you tried.

The third is also more work. Instead of there being a limit to how many times you can use the Bodhi Seed, each time you used it the cost would increase to use it.

The fourth option is for those that don't think it should be added, hopefully, they'll explain why in the comments.

Finally, the fifth option is for those that have already voted, don't care, or for the admins. Please don't waste your efforts trying to boost the poll results. It's no effort on our part to run a script that eliminates all the multis from the vote. It's way more fun to spend that time playing the game.

News / Server outage + Patch 55
« on: January 05, 2019, 02:20:41 am »
The server crashed due to a technical issue. While fixing it, we applied patch 55. Thank you for your patience.


Patch 55

1. Removed the world chat notification for receiving the title Returned from a Dream.

2. Added descriptions to faction change items.

3. Added Seira faction change item.

4. Fixed custom pets. If you purchased one while they were bugged then it will probably still be bugged, you need to find a GM in-game to get a refund.

5. You can now use astrolabe in Garro.

6. Coupon reset timer has been returned to the original status. We'll see how this works, we have detected 2 other changes that might ultimately be the issue. We expect the coupon issue to be fully resolved within the next week.

7. Dragonne(Pet) was reduced in size, this should hopefully fix the targeting issue.

Faction changes should return in the next patch. Possibly as early as tonight. Automated events will be going live sometime this weekend.

News / Bans and unbans
« on: January 03, 2019, 08:56:11 am »
Today we completed the recovery of sigils that were obtained through the courage exploit. All of the users that exploited this issue have now been unbanned. 2 users that were banned did not exploit the issue, but knew about the issue and did not report it. We feel this was sufficient for a ban.

Further, we have begun a new ban policy surrounding vote exploitation. If a user is caught exploiting the voting system they will no longer be permanently banned, instead, they will be issued a 7-day ban and their Jaden will be wiped.  If they have no Jaden, we will pursue other consequences such as removing your bank notes or destroying your gear.

Today, 75 users were banned for exploiting votes, most of which were connected to just 1 person.

Please, do everybody a favor and just follow the rules. I'd rather be working on content than administrative tasks, and you'd rather that too.

News / Patch 54
« on: December 29, 2018, 07:10:56 am »
This was an unplanned patch that we applied because the server crashed due to a technical issue.

1. We realized that the charge rewards were not as they should be for our server. We've temporarily removed them to evaluate them and add rewards that are more suitable for our server.

2. We're testing a fix to the coupon issue, the test is only on MTH coupons right now. It'll take about a day or two until we'll know if this resolution works.

Thanks to whole team Tcholok, Perryl, EvilFlippy, and all technical team for good work bringing back monkey dynasty

Please look into old drops event s rewards like etherborn feathers, goat year blessing items, still we cant exchange rewards since hydran patch

Also npc talking is too much in new sun stream , And do we still need to look for Perryl to exchange Banana Coupons for shop bananas??

Thank You

Don't forget Kaz!

Old drop events will be looked at in the very near future. Yes, they will return and be used at different times. There will be a posted schedule in the near future.

The NPC chatter is super annoying and I did take a quick look for it before we patched, but I didn't finish. I do intend on removing it, however, I may use it for our custom NPCs, less often.

For now, yes, we do still need to exchange those manually, but we are looking at a way to simplify that process and we will be improving it in the near future.

Patch 49

1. Fixed a critical exploit that allowed users to purchase a lotto for 0 gold.

2. Repaired the stack size on custom packs.

3. Fixed autosell crafting.

Patch 50

1. Removed Golden Statue from the marketplace. It was priced too low, but we considered having it in the marketplace at all a negative effect for the economy.

2. Adjusted the price of some lottos. They were lower than intended.

3. Added the Windy Gem to the marketplace for Seira players.

4. Fixed ability to port to Custom SS on realms 10, 13, 14, and 15.

1st thought on this, well, we just finished customizing BFS awards as part of an upcoming patch, but it won't make the title easier to get. We don't really think it should.

I think the idea of bringing alts in to BFS to stack the enemy team so you can win easier is... I mean, as far as I'm concerned people doing that should be banned. lol.

So, I don't think we would create a new item for people to farm to get access to items they normally have to obtain with effort. I like exclusive content. I think players like to know that something they have is unique and will stay unique. For example, we have some content in the auction that we keep as auction exclusives only. We don't add them to the NPCs or anything because we want people who won those items in the auction to feel as good about winning them tomorrow as they do today.

There are honestly too many new features to even accurately talk about this idea. Things changed significantly in the upcoming patch because that's the direction JD took and we don't want to undo things they did that we think make sense. As you guys discussed, items become devalued over time. The economy fluctuates. Yes, the person who has a fat wallet is at an advantage, but let's be honest, the server went down the other day because of an autopay failure. Meaning, we aren't making enough money to pay for the rent. Don't think you have any big wallets to worry about. The person who has been playing since 2013 also has an advantage. That's just the way it is. In any game, and always will be really. Unless you're playing a game where everyone starts from scratch every month, like a round based game or something. This will happen.

We are considering many changes that I think will address the points made in this thread in a way that all of you will agree is good, or not, we'll see. lol.

what is preventing someone from opening 999 clients and farming MCP for a day and then channeling all their MCP to a main character and using that to get said 2-3 months worth item? it isnt fair for those that are unable to compete with these 'min-max' type players.

That would be some dedication. Besides, who that has a good enough PC that they can run 999 clients is going to spend their valuable time running 999 clients to get what they could get with a few dollars.

The people who would run 999 clients don't have the technical ability to do so. We did, in fact, factor this into our decision. We wanted to spend more time on development and less time on banning the same people over and over again. The few people who did this and got banned for it were using up time that would benefit a larger group of people being used elsewhere.  For them to just come back, make new accounts, and do it again.

We believe that if we spend more time on development that it will satisfy more people than being vigilant about banning people for things like having too many accounts. Something that was difficult to prove in the first place because everybody's dog has an account.
