Live Server Downtime - Bug Fixes

Posted by John Thornhill | 2015 Jul 14 15:15 -0400 GMT
Update 7 am EST: All Live Servers will be coming down today at 8 am EST / 1 pm GMT to fix a few issues with the 1.118 patch.

Servers are expected to be up by 12 pm EST / 5 pm GMT or earlier.

The planned fixes are listed below:
  • Items spellcrafted prior to 1.118 will have the correct stat values that they had prior to the patch.
  • Player-crafted shields will once again be able to be spellcrafted.
  • +Skills on shields will once again affect characters when equipped.

We'll update this post tomorrow morning with the exact server down time and the expected maintenance length. Please accept our apologies for the extra downtime and we appreciate your patience as we get these issues corrected! Finally, please don't hesitate to report any other issues found between now and then via the /reportbug command in-game, thanks!

Character and Guild Search Update

Posted by John Thornhill | 2015 Jul 14 11:23 -0400 GMT

The Character and Guild Search feature should once again be updating your characters' and guilds' statistics! Please note that it may take several hours for the process to work its way through all characters and guilds so please check back later if you do not see your updated stats immediately.

Additionally, we have some new notes for the search feature:
  • Search results will now include archived characters and servers.
    • A small icon will appear next to the name to denote an archived character.
  • The cluster drop down now displays the servers contained in each cluster to help returning users find their characters.
  • A link has been added to the bottom of the results to direct players to the Returning Players Guide.

Guild Autopromote Update

Posted by Development | 2015 Jul 06 15:33 -0400 GMT

The Guild Autopromote system has been disabled for the past several weeks. This system will be re-enabled on Thursday, July 9th. 

For more information on how this system functions and on our entire Guild Maintenance Policy, check the wiki article HERE.

Please note that when this system is re-enabled, emails will be retroactively sent out requesting inactive guild leaders to login their characters so that they are not demoted. If you receive one of these emails and have logged in within 30 days on the character(s) referenced, you can ignore the email.

Characters that have not been logged in recently will be immediately demoted when the feature is re-enabled. If you have a character that is currently a guildmaster that you fear may not have logged in within the past 30 days, we highly advise logging them on between now and Thursday to avoid demotion.

Pendragon Server Downtime

Posted by John Thornhill | 2015 Jun 25 11:27 -0400 GMT

UPDATE 5:05pm EST: Pendragon is now back online. 1.118b patch notes can be found HERE!

The Pendragon server will be coming down today, June 25th, at 2pm EST / 7pm GMT, for an update.

The test server should be back online by 6:30pm EST / 11:30pm GMT.

Don't forget we also have a Live Dev Q & A at 7pm EST tonight to discuss the Otherworlds Campaign as well as 1.118b's changes. The stream will be accessible HERE!

Want to hop over to Pendragon to help test? Read the Pendragon Character Copy FAQ! Also, we highly recommend creating a separate game directory when testing Pendragon as patching between Live and Test servers will sometimes result in file discrepencies. If you do run across any issues when patching back to live, try deleting the mft.myp file in your game's directory and running the patcher again.
