We'll be running Navezgane during ex, but will be returning to RWG upon a17's hard release
We're running true Vanilla-Build - We want to see how well things play, and where the balancing needs lay before redigging into modding; a17 has brought too much new content for us not to give it a good ol' study and testplay.
The Gimmies, Zcoin & VoteShops will be disabled during ex
Most /commands not related to shops and gimmies will still be available
Claims are 75x75 w/ a 150 deadzone, for the time being
Loot respawn is being lowered to 5 from 7 days, for the time being
Block durability is being lowered to 100% from 150%
While you play - Please keep in mind that we want your feedback! That being said, we want everyone to play their hearts out for a bit! All the while gathering and holding onto their opinions and ideas in order to conglomerate more serious lists of:
balancing notes (loot, xp, perks & skills)
wants & needs for the vote, zcoin & gimmie shops
previous modded content you'd like to see return
general opinions on all newly added tfp content - what needs nerfing, boosting, higher or lower spawn rates etc etc
We'll take a handful polls after getting in your feedback, see where the community's desires lay on a variety of options going forth with the hard alpha drop to come.
Please keep in mind, this is experimental. There will be at minimum 1 wipe at the end of this, and potentially more to come as the experimental alpha build unfolds. Just consider every hour of fun had during this time as an hour of research towards bettering our next hopefully 5k+ day a17 rwg map. *knocks on wood*
So how far along are you guys? The Danish gang are more or less waiting for things to stabilize, and the wipe to be over before we join in.
Due to some spawning issues the Jan 15 A17.1 wipe has been delayed while they work out the bugs. Hopefully its up soon. I miss my favorite server!
