All,

These three months have went by so fast. Here is a quick update on the status of the next release.
  • I've got steam login and server selection in my development environment. Have to move it to Production yet for testing. This is proving harder than usual, for unknown reasons at this moment. After finishing this, we will have some other small integrations such as account binding and token purchasing, but that can come later.
  • Before we push to steam, we want to make a balance pass, 10-20 most annoying bug fixes, and have the quest log working.
  • Currently FujiQ and I have been concentrating on the quest log. We have all but a few done. Those being left are the book quests, dynamic quests, and the trainer quests. After we finish testing these internally, we will either spin up a new server for testing or just cross our fingers and upgrade H & L. Not sure how we are going to do it yet. (this might just fit in to the next point)
  • We will be looking at moving the servers to a new ISP for a better experience for all.
This all takes time, but I'll see if I can have FujiQ post some screens of the quest log and gather some of the needed balances/bug fixes.
Thanks all for being patient.
-Zarq

thinking in terms of steam. would it also be possible to tweak the business model? why not stick only with micro-transactions and get rid of the VIP system. it is essentially pay to win because you get more experience having bought it. i don't think this type of model is popular in fact i think it is holding the game back from a wider audience.I think mixing monthly subscriptions + micro-transactions is overkill and off putting.

Agreed. One or the other, not both.
Also send us our grab bags, it's been what... like 2 years? Geez. It's one of the reasons why people subbed in the first place.

I've always been ok with the VIP & micro transactions, but mainly because of the grab bag. I've seen other games where you could buy semi-random grab bags but i'm not convinced that would work well on AE, but 1 per month per account works nicely.

As for pay to win - not remotely true. If you think the game ends at 110 you have no clue, the game starts at 110. Winning is getting a sott, lance, e set, pirate ship, killing nith & proj & mukk and graal. You can actually buy most of those items, you can buy levels and characters, but that doesn't compare to killing the bosses and getting it yourself.

Once you've done all that you still aren't there, come to H and try se if you are brave enough to even leave town. Way more to the game than 110
