Introducing Account Names
Posted by: Kip - 28-02-2017, 11:13 PM - Forum: News & Updates - Replies (19)

Hello everyone,

Until now, your username has been one of your character names. Going forward, the username will be your account name.

Account names are being rolled out in stages starting with the oldest accounts created in 2011 which will have their chance first starting March 1st.  Two weeks after that, accounts created in 2012 will be able to set account names and so on.  This will wrap up with accounts created in 2017 and brand new accounts being registered for the first time.

Each group of accounts will have one week in which an account name can be set or the decision can be put off until later.  After that week, choosing an account name will be required to do anything on the website.  In other words, starting on March 8th, accounts created in 2011 must choose an account name with no option to put it off.  Accounts created in 2012 will lose the skip option on March 22nd and so on.

Each account name must be unique. The first time you set your account name, there is no fee. After that, renaming costs 5,000 gold.  The same restrictions and rules that apply to character names also apply to account names.

If someone has already chosen a name which obviously should be yours, you can file a request through the website to have that name assigned to you. This option is only available before you have set your account name for the first time.  After the request is made, you can choose an account name to serve you temporarily and as a backup in the event the request is denied. Please do not post requests on the forum.

Once your account name has been set, you will be unable to log into your account using one of your character names.  Instead, please use your new account name.

Besides serving as a username for signing in, your account name will eventually be used to identify you to other people on the website so choose wisely!

  Teamspeak Server Changes - Completed
Posted by: Naozumi - 21-02-2017, 11:04 AM - Forum: News & Updates - Replies (1)

The teamspeak server provided by NordInvasion is a great way to communicate with other players and has always been very popular. However as of late we have been made aware of some users who are having issues with our current host. As such, we will be changing the host for the server in a bid to improve the experience for our users.

How will this affect me?

In the next couple of days we will move to the new server. At this exact point the current name (ts3.nordinvasion.com) will be updated to the new IP. However as it can take a while for the DNS servers around the world to update you may find that you are not able to connect to the new server. To mitigate this there is a new name already pointing to the new server so that people don't get stuck waiting for the DNS to update.

What do I need to do?

At the chosen time, if you are online you will be disconnected. We will try to pick the quietest time and speak with anyone who is online but this may be tricky as its usually early morning GMT. If you then reconnect before your DNS is updated then you will join a very limited TS server that will have no voice, chat or channels. It will alert you that the server has moved and to use the new TS server name. We will do this so that you are fully aware of when the server moves. 

As such, when the server moves you will need to update your connection name with the new hostname. When you connect you will find all channels and permissions have migrated. Everything should behave as normal.

What is the new temporary name?

The temporary name is ts.nordinvasion.com. This name will only work once the new server goes live. If you dont often connect, or only connect at weekends you should find that you are not affected using the current name.

What if I have an issue?

Use the forum to get in touch and we will try help in any way we can.

How else can I be notified?

The completion of the move will be announced at the time on the forum here, on our Facebook page and via Twitter.

I have a question not answered here.

Feel free to reply and we will try answer any questions.

  Updated Item Images
Posted by: Kip - 20-02-2017, 04:16 AM - Forum: News & Updates - Replies (7)

Hello everyone,

Thanks to some hard work from Nka19, the item preview images used on the website have gotten a major update.

Besides adding images for new items and updating outdated images for items whose models or textures have changed, the style of the ammo images has been changed to show both the projectile and the quiver.

[Image: black_arrow.png] [Image: HA_bolt.png] [Image: jarid_new.png]

There are a few items (such as Bolts, Steel Bolts, and Heavy Bolts) which have not been updated yet because of shared bolt models (they all read the same image) but different quivers. They will be updated later.

Thanks again Nka19!

  New Class Tree Layout
Posted by: Kip - 02-02-2017, 05:09 AM - Forum: News & Updates - Replies (1)

Hello everyone,

With the recent addition of the mobile version of our website, there are still a few areas that need adjustment to work properly. First up is the character class selection system.

You can now see all your options in advance without having to unlock any classes first. In addition, each tier has a progress bar so you can see how far you are from the next tier or even the last tier. Perhaps most important for mobile, there is no longer a pop-up which extends off the side of the screen. Everything shrinks down to fit the width of the page.

  1.5.2 Client Release
Posted by: Kip - 25-01-2017, 04:03 AM - Forum: News & Updates - Replies (15)

1.5.2 Client Release

  • The Hunting Spear's overhead attack deals pierce damage, not blunt.
  • Maneater: -3 speed, +3 cut
  • Fixed the Dead Shot knock-down.
  • Fixed a few item stats already announced that were missed in the code.
  • Re-added the fire effect to the Seige Masters' crossbows.
  • The "Secret Stuff" candles can once again be interacted with.
  • Tome and Barrel counting has been reworked.  It should cap at two consistently instead of sometimes working, sometimes not.
  • The character loadout in-game now reloads right after you spawn.  This means the character screen preview correctly shows your next support item instead of your last one.
  • Because the character loadout is being refreshed more frequently, the "Loading player profile ..." text has been removed to clean up notifications.
  • The server now waits until your character loadout has actually loaded before you spawn in to prevent spawning in "too fast" and ending up with no gear or stats.
  • Map updates...
    • Beach Assault (sandy outer terrain)
    • Swadian Temple (pathing)
    • Swadian Village (barrier)
  • New props and outer terrain for mappers: health pot, barrels (both open and closed) with lids, snowy beach, and sandy beach.

Items Preamble
In an effort to clean up item tiers and overall item balance, we have condensed house crafting into one solid tier rather than different tiers of similar items with different crafting costs. Legendary armors are also all the red tier now. This is to encourage people to level up all the way instead of focusing on funds upon reaching tier 4, as well as to promote the use of earlier crafted armors among new players and experienced players leveling up new characters alike. Items that belong to a specialized class should all be superior to non-specialized hero items, removing an old precedent of having cheaper hero locked items equal to or better than more expensive items due to being hero locked. You will also notice that house crafted and red legendary items are all hero locked now. Legendary item drop locations will change over time to put all of the orange drops to Normal and early Hard mode, with red drops moving to later Hard and Ragnarok mode. Bastard weapons will be adjusted in a future patch, where they will follow this trend and all gain a second mode to make them more effective in one hand mode. These changes are also meant to pave the way for exciting new additions in the future.
