Server Maintenance on Saturday 14/04/2012

Postby GMSignPainter » Tue Apr 10, 2012 6:46 pm

Dear Player,

In the occasion of the second anniversary of the Server, a Maintenance has been scheduled for this Saturday at 12:00:00 Server Time.

This Maintenance will add a whole new feature to the game as well as several bug fixes and improvements.

Changelog:

New Feature:
We're adding a whole new system of Arena to the game. Now players will be able to join a 2v2, 3v3 or 5v5 Arena match from anywhere. Once you click on "Join", you are automatically put in a queue which will make a Team and find you an opponent team of the same level to fight with. When both teams are ready, they will get moved to the Arena. The Arena is also instanced now, which means there can be several fights in the same time.
In addition to this, we will be adding the possibility of making Ranked Arena Teams which will work the same way as the random fights except that you can choose the people who will be on your side and can get nice rewards from it.
However, the system will be in BETA test phase which means there won't be any reward in the beginning. Once the BETA will be over, we will delete all the teams.

Custom UIs:
Several changes have been done to the Custom UIs.
First of all a couple of new Widgets are available, Layouts, TextEdit, TextArea, RadioButton.
Also the biggest change is the addition of scripts to the UI. Those scripts are written in Squirrel and anyone is free to add new Scripts if they wish to. If you want to know more about Squirrel, I invite you to visit its official Website : http://squirrel-lang.org/
Regarding what kind of options are available to the players in the Scripts, tutorials and explanations will be soon written in a dedicated forum.

Website:
To celebrate our second anniversary, a whole brand new Website will be deployed during the week !

Bug Fixes:
- Fixed the butchering message saying 'Wheat' instead of the proper item name.
- Fixed a crash due to some magics (such as Twinkle Star)
- The crash at loging should have been fixed by itself (at least we weren't getting it anymore during our tests)
- Fixed a small bug with Daily Quests.

Local War:
- Now players need to do a certain amount of damages to a stone before getting PWP from it.
- The Local War rewards are now obtainable from a NPC in each main town instead of 20s after the end of the war.

General:
- The price of some items will be changed in order to prevent the usage of bots from making money.

Thief:
- The damages of Extreme Ice have been a bit decreased to balance a bit Thieves toward Archers.


It is highly possible the changelog changes before the Maintenance.

Just to expand a bit on the local war updates:
-> To get PWP for attacking a sanctuary stone you must now do a minimum amount of damage per hit: 3 times your character level. E.g. a level 100 character has to do a minimum damage of 300 per hit to the stone. Players that do not do enough damage receive a message in the top left. This prevents players from hitting the stone with their fists so as not to damage it but to still get PWP from it (which is not the intended way).
-> A losing nation now gets a slightly higher reward to encourage participation: 1 DF and 1 Fame when PWP is between 100 and 200. If PWP > 200 then DF = 1 + (PWP/200) and Fame = DF * 1.5, results rounded down. E.g. 250 PWP -> DF = 2, Fame = 3.
-> Getting your reward from war is no longer automatic as it sometimes bugged and people would miss out on their reward.
You now have to speak to an NPC to get your reward. A positive side effect of this is that when a player with PWP is not online at the end of war, he can still get his reward at a later time. But if after 4 local wars he has not collected his reward then he loses it.
If a player goes to war while still having a reward at the npc, this reward will be overridden at the end of war. So players can not stack up their rewards.
-> Help pages on the PWP system have been updated accordingly.

And the bug fixed in daily quests was that the NPC would sometimes tell you "you've already done this quest today" while you didn't.

Server is back online !

New patch available via Updater.exe or the following links:

Latest Patch : http://www.dragonraja.eu/patch/dr-globa ... -ver45.zip
Full Patch : http://www.dragonraja.eu/patch/dr-globa ... 5-full.zip

Also, I didn't have time to finish the Ranked Arenas so I didn't add them yet. However, the Unranked ones were added so be sure to test them and give us a lot of feedback !

I also didn't have time to add a proper button for the Arenas so meanwhile the "Event" button on the left of the War Menu button will be used for the Arenas.

The random unranked arena matches are now fixed. Please test them as much as possible to spot any remaining bug.
