Preparing for Blast off! (V6 Release)
« on: 25 Jan 2014, 19:29:01 »

Update: Arrived at New York safe and sound!


Hey all,

I am pleased to announce Version 6.0 will finally open on the 7th of February at 9pm GMT (What is it in my timezone?). I and other members of the team and thankful that the project is finally coming to a close, after a series of bad luck and hours upon hours of developing/planning headaches. Just recently we've been having issues with our network in Chicago and are now forced to make the move to New York, this will happen on either the 29th/30th next week. So if you live near/in New York you are now even closer to the machine; Yay!

Now for the important information: Release Info!

What's happening on release day?

On the night of the release, we'll be opening the server three hours earlier for VIP and Veteran members. These players will be auto-whitelisted and will be able to connect when the countdown hits (00 | 00 | 00 | 00). After this time a post will be created in which we will be white listing members manually, the reason for this is that due to both technical and stability issues we think the best outcome of a stable and safe start to the version would be to keep the influx of players completely under control.

This means if you are not VIP/Veteran YOU will not be white listed automatically and will have to request access on the post, we will only be accepting members that played in V5 for the first week and will be white listing EVERYONE that makes a reply (no application required). Players will be white listed in intervals and white listing may/will slow down depending on issues that occur or maintenance going on.

What to expect within the first 3 hours:

- Unexpected issues
- Bugs, Glitches, Crashes
- Random/Unannounced maintenance's/hot fix

What to expect within the first week

- Unexpected issues
- Bugs, Glitches, Crashes
- Announced frequent/random maintenance's/hotfix

Will the donation shop be live on release?

Yes, the donation shop will be live on release, however, you will only be able to purchase VIP upgrades/lifetime for the first week. After the period of the BETA week, we'll start adding more packages for the donation system, reason being is that issue will occur within the first week and we don't want to create more issues around donation gifts being lost etc.

If I buy VIP will I have access to the early 3 hours?

Yes, you can buy VIP and be auto-whitelisted into the first three hours/BETA Week.

Coupons

Donation coupons will be sent out throughout the first week at random intervals, if you are still waiting on receiving coupons from the points convert, please be patient. You will receive them eventually!

Guides

During the days leading up to the release guides will be posted about certain features of the server, those being for example: the Chunk system/Auction etc.

The only problem I have is the manual whitelist thing, or with the time window for the application to be more specific.

I already know I won't be able to apply a that time (Friday night) and I also know that there will be a lot of people here so I really hope the queue will be over by the day after else I won't be able to play at all that weekend :|

Great news im so thankful for the work everyone put in!

I have a few questions if someone can answer them please do.

I was in the top 100 active players and my understanding of that was that we got Veteran status for V6 but my status on the site still says carpenter.

So I was wondering if I am veteran and it just doesn't say it or I am not and I just miss read it?

Plus if I am veteran and it just doesn't say it yet will I be able to get on in the first few hours?

Yes you are a veteran and will get into the server early. Nobody who is a veteran has gotten their veteran title yet but im sure they will add it later.

Your veteran ranks should come when V6 is released.
