News / Online Jaden Rewards
« on: August 03, 2019, 10:16:13 am »
Now that we have an advanced security system in place to ensure fairness, we're bringing back online Jaden rewards!

Starting now you will all begin receiving 35 Jaden every hour, delivered to one of their online characters. If you have multiple characters online, one will be randomly selected every hour to receive the reward.

To keep things balanced, we have reduced the vote Jaden by the same amount, so the net daily Jaden you can receive is still the same at 1,680.

Not only does this create some fun new ways to collect Jaden, this reduces the incentives for vote exploitation which should increase fairness and balance and reduce some of our auditing workload. This should also reduce the negative effects some of you occasionally experience when a vote site decides to not count your vote.

News / Patch 66 - The Big One™
« on: July 28, 2019, 08:36:17 am »
Patch is live. The version is 68 due to 2 hotfix.

There may be a few DCs shortly before / after patch as we bring up some new systems this patch depends on.

--

Last month we had a plan in place to patch a few patches close together to bring an event idea to life and fix some mistakes from the previous patch. Rarely do things go as planned and this patch was no exception.

While this patch did take longer than our patch schedule had promised, it has significantly better content in it. Most of the content we had planned to implement in that batch of patches is NOT in this patch. These things will be implemented in future patches.

Instead, we got our hands on some new information and learned how to modify skills. We had also teased a lot of new website content over the last few months. Now you can see that most of these things are live. We implemented automatic gear change, a new web storage system, the ability to view your character on the website and view your storage, and improved tracking and protections to make the server as fair as possible. We also fixed Clouded, so you can start earning the required items to develop Fate Gears.

A lot of content on the server was really out-of-date. We've been live since 2013 and some content hadn't evolved with the server rates and game changes over time. In line with this evolution, we've lowered prices in the shop to be more consistent with what we believe is fair, and spur some more donations.

Running and developing MD is expensive. We have 2 servers that cost us hundreds of dollars per month (each), tools that we pay monthly for, and our time, which, hopefully you agree, has value.

Anything you can buy in shop can be obtained for free by playing the game, but ultimately for development to continue and for the server's expenses to be paid, donations have to increase. The price reductions we've done account for the removal of 2x donations, almost everything is half the price it was when we removed 2x donations. The only exception that comes to mind is Custom Title which will not be reduced, but may go on sale from time to time.

If you like our work and you'd like to see MD continue to evolve, please consider buying something in the shop. It's literally what keeps the server running and these patches coming, and we're at a point where it's getting harder to justify the tremendous amount of work we've put into MD throughout 2019.

--

Below, you will find a list of changes that have been implemented over the last month, and content that is being implemented with this client patch. So without further adieu, feast your eyes on the full notes for Patch 66:

Website
  • Voting
    • We've reduced the amount you get from voting on Xtremetop100 by half.
    • We've added a second site for voting to increase exposure. You may vote on Xtremetop once per 12 hours and Gtop every 24 hours for a total of 1680 Jaden per day.
  • Banana Shop
    The Banana Shop is undergoing some long-promised changes to pricing, item availability, and structure. Here's what we've changed so far:
    • We've added an automated, instant Gear Change option. Check it out here!
    • We've changed the price of Jaden to 10 Bananas per 1,000 Jaden. All other options for Jaden purchase have been removed.
    • Chapter of Essence has been reduced to 50 Bananas.
    • Esper Catalyze Item has been reduced to 5 Bananas.
    • Expertise Coupon has been reduced to 10 Bananas.

    • Bodhi Seed is no longer restricted.
    • Lottos have been temporarily disabled for restructuring.
  • Event Rewards
    The new rewards have been live for a few weeks now. Sorry for the delay.
    • You will no longer see the same rewards from event to event.
    • Sigil shards from event rewards are no longer tradeable.
    • There are many variables behind the reward system that decide the rewards and their seed prices. You may not pay the same price for the same item from event to event.
    • Sometimes there will be a "crit" which results in an option where you can get an item for cheaper than normal.
    • There have been improvements made to the reward options and you can now get most useful items in the game.
    • Rare items have been added to the reward options.
    • You can no longer see the rewards until after the event has completed.
    • Omened Seal is 350 Banana Seeds *if it shows up*. It's obviously rare.
    • Soon you will have ways to boost the amount of Seeds you get per event and we'll also have events with increased Seed rewards.
    • Example of new rewards:
         
         
  • Jungle Expansion
    The Jungle Expansion that we've been talking about has been in beta testing for about a month now. If you haven't tried it yet, you can try it out here. Much of this is still to come, but here are some of the features already released:
    • Search for any character profile and view PvP stats, equipment, clan, ally, and more.
    • View your characters' in-game items on the web, including your storage, equipped items, and your bag.
    • This includes a Web Stash that allows you to move items to and from an external web storage system for potentially unlimited storage space. We've given each character 25 slots to start with. Try it out here.
    • View information about your alliance and clan by clicking on the clan or alliance name on character profiles
    • What else would you like to this be able to do? Let us know in the comments!

    • Several of these bosses will be used in a custom instance that is currently in development.
    • Some of you might remember the custom boss "Shaman". The model used for this boss was actually part of the group of bosses from above that are to be used for this custom instance. Due to that, we've changed his model to a new design.

News / Re: Multi-client Limit
« on: July 21, 2019, 10:18:58 pm »
Wonder whose the one who made this decision. Some veterans in game logins more then 3 clients and uses drops from grind to help newbies. Guess no more newbies helps then. Nice job. Was having computer problems lately and was gonna come back very soon, guess this helps many players to look for other alternatives. Game and community was nice while it lasts. Thanks all. Byeeee

Sorry you feel that way. This change was a highly requested one by many players, particularly newer players.

While I'm sure having 10 accounts online farming is used by some players to collect items to give away to newbies, the majority simply use it to build up more and more resources for themselves which keeps increasing the gap between OG players and newbies as well as those who can run 10 clients and those who can't.

Overall this will bring greater fairness and balance. As with all of our updates, it's not necessarily set it stone. If it proves more negative than positive, it will be undone, but so far overall feedback is largely positive.

News / Multi-client Limit
« on: July 21, 2019, 05:38:58 am »
We are reinstituting the limit of 3 online characters per person starting sometime on Monday, July 22.

This limit will be strictly enforced using a new automated enforcement system. If you have more than 3 characters online at the same time, you will receive warning messages on all of your characters notifying you that you have exceeded the limit of 3. If you do not disconnect characters such that you are below the limit of 3, the server will disconnect the most recently logged in characters until you go below the limit of 3.

This system is operating in "warn only" mode, for now, You will receive the warnings described above, but your characters will not start being kicked until Monday, July 22. If you believe you are receiving inaccurate warnings or notice any other issues with this new system, please let me know in this post or on Discord.

This should help keep things fairer between players who have the ability to run many clients and those who do not and is a great new addition to the many systems we already have in place to ensure greater fairness than any other server.

Enjoy!

News / Patch 65
« on: June 18, 2019, 10:45:57 pm »
This patch has been applied!

--

So, weekly patches hasn't exactly worked out the best for us so far. The plan to patch Thursdays, also not quite working out, but we do still have a patch for you. We're not going to wait for Thursday, though, we're just going to patch it in today.

We fell behind and failed to keep up with this weekly patch promise, but we're going to turn that around now starting with this patch today. No, this does not mean you will get a weekly patch next Tuesday, or that we're changing the date. Patch 66 will be on Thursday. Patch 67 will be before next Thursday, I don't know exactly what day yet.

We're also really excited to show you the upcoming Jungle Extension. Keep watching the news section for an announcement that will explain what it is and how to use it.

Below, you'll find a list of the stuff you can expect in this patch. (that we remembered/wrote down)

NPC:
  • Tcholok
    • Tcholok has had the "Item Exchange" section split into 2 sections. One is now known as the "Event Item Exchange" and the other is called "Item Exchange". This gives us more room to add various items to these sections in the future.
    • The Dream Origin Exchange has been added to the Event Item Exchange shop for 1 Monkey Coin. Once right-clicked, this item will reward you with a special exchange that will be valid for 1 year. This item is only valid once per character.
    • You can now exchange your old sands for Holy Lotus sands at the Tcholok NPC in the Item Exchange section.
  • Golden Pig
    • This texture was sometimes not working for some people, we have made a slight adjustment to improve the rendering of this texture.
  • Monkey NPC
    • In the coupon/upgrade exchange on the refinery tab there's now an option to purchase Jadefall Crystal for 50 Monkey Coin and Spirit Square Jade for 100 Monkey Coin.
    • Also found in the coupon/upgrade exchange on the refinery tab is untradeable Astri, Ares, and Flux Sigil Shards for untradeable Monkey Coin Packs.
    • In the coupon/upgrade exchange on the refinery tab you will find level 6 Reforgers for 3000 MC each.
  • Revision Charms for Athan and Human have been added to the Monkey NPC for 5000 MC each. These items can be used to change your pre-ascended faction.
  • Stashkeep Tamsin
    • The Item Crates section now has options for Radiant Orbs, Common Seal Orbs, and Soul Inverters.
  • Monkey Skylord
    • The Monkey Skylord has been added to Sunstream next to Skylord Tamsin.
    • Custom ports have been moved from Skylord Tamsin to Monkey Skylord in Sunstream.
  • Blacksmith
  • Blacksmith is a new NPC that has been added as a one-stop shop to get 14X gears. You can now get 14X Diamond, Chu-Han, Battleground, and Skytouch gears from him. He's found in Custom SS next to the other Blacksmith, in Seat of Chaos in the middle, and in Sunstream next to the Battleground gear NPC.
  • Rat King
    • A new NPC added as the entrypoint for Dread Lab. He's found in Custom SS at the same spot where you used to enter CP.
  • Master Yao Dunmu
    • Removed from Custom SS to make room for Rat King. Entry for Crimson Peaks is found in the instances list now, so this NPC had no function.
  • Dr. Perryl
    • New NPC added for some reason that I currently forget, lol.

Item:
  • We've removed Dream Origin from the drop lists and have replaced it with Pig Year's Blessing. Pig Year's Blessing will be collected until the end of August.
  • We've adjusted the chance of receiving 4 base stats on a badge to 15% and completely removed the chance of getting just 1 base stat.
  • Radiant Orb can now stack to 30,000.
  • 4 new Skyblades and 3 new Wings have been added.
    • Blue Raven Wings

    • Maple Feather

    • Red Fidget Spinner

    • Vibrant Moor Goldfish

    • Dream Catcher skyblade which is exclusive to the Dream Origin exchange.

    • A new custom title has been added. The "Dream Catcher" title can be purcased in the Lifelong Dream Grand Pack.

    • We've mentioned a couple times about increasing the speed of flight items. We've decided we're going to rewrite the formula for these improvements and make it possible to make the skyblades better through upgrading. This is coming soon.
    • Banana Coupons have been converted into items that can now be simply right clicked to reward Bananas. Banana exchange quests have been removed from the Peels NPC.
    • We have added Jaden Coupons, although they are not available yet.


    Instance:
    • Holy Lotus
      • All levels of prize packs have had their Affinity Beads removed and replaced with Astral Dew. You can get between 1 - 6 Astral Dew per run now.
      • All levels of prize packs have had their Chroma Bead reward values increased significantly. You can now get a range of 2000 - 30000 Chroma Beads per run.
      • All levels of prize packs have had their Ice Orb of Vastness reward increased. You can now earn between 500 - 5000 Ice Orbs per run.
      • All levels of prize packs have had their maximum amount of Sands or Crystals multiplied by 3. This includes Heart of Radiance and Golden Grit too.
    • Shura Gauntlet
      • Some mobs had the wrong drop list, these have been updated to have our custom drop list for SG.
      • Diamond gears have been removed from the drops. You can now get Diamond Gears from the Blacksmith NPC found in both SS and SoC.

    Other stuff:
    • Daily Sign-in
      • We've reset the timer and you may begin to collect these rewards again tomorrow. This is the last cycle of these specific rewards, the next set of rewards will be changed for Patch ~71
    • Event System
      • Event rewards have been modified to be more randomized.
    • Graphic titles
      • We've repaired the newer titles that could not display. We will begin to reward these in various ways soon.
    • Icons
      • Many more new icons were added.

Website:
We've built more of the underlying framework for the upcoming Jungle expansion. We're expecting this to be revealed sometime in June!

News / Patch 62
« on: May 09, 2019, 08:52:18 am »
This patch has been applied!

This section at the top of patches will be updated to reflect the status of the patch since we are now announcing patches prior to their release.

--

Patching Schedule
The issue that we originally scheduled a weekly maintenance reboot to address has been resolved. That said, weekly patching has been highly requested. There were some logistical challenges that we had to overcome before being prepared to commit to weekly patching. There are still many factors that could potentially delay these weekly patches, but we are going to try it out. The approach we're going to go with is:
  • Tuesday: patch work completed
  • Wednesday: announcement + patch notes + time window for patching
  • Thursday: Apply the patch in the planned time window

Patches will generally be smaller. However, the majority of you have suggested that you would prefer more consistent patching rather than large patches with many changes.

Community Feedback

We'd also like to remind you how important the community is to the development process. Please, take the time to report issues and make suggestions, even if you believe they've already been reported or suggested. When we hear it from more people we know how important that particular feature, issue, or suggestion is to the community as a whole, and it tells us where to best utilize our time. This server wouldn't be over 6 years old without your input, feedback, and ideas.

Now, on to the changes.

Website:
  • We built a torrent version of the client for download.
  • We updated the site and removed the quick chat, it has been replaced with a Discord chat bot. Let us know what you think of it.

  • Moved the Recycling Center's exchange to Tcholok as a second exchange option.

  • The Skyblade NPC has been revamped to have more room for upcoming additions, this should also make it easier to find the Wings, Flying Mount or Skyblade you're looking for.

  • We've added more descriptions to custom items.
  • Divination quest rewards have been modified.

News / North American Daylight Savings
« on: March 10, 2019, 06:32:22 am »
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.

Polls / Re: PvP Event System
« on: March 02, 2019, 12:40:06 am »
Thanks for the feedback guys.

Which specific messages do you think should be reduced? The PM messages are only sent to those who are actually participating in the event. The broadcasts can be reduced but there's no way to filter those by player so those are all or nothing. I think we can remove the class messages that accompany the broadcasts.

Let me know any more specific suggestions around reducing unnecessary messages.
