This is what is happening on iRO this week.
1. Ticket Issues
As always, if you are experiencing an issue with a ticket or other issue thats not being resolved. Please PM CM Mayari https://forums.warpp...47949-cmmayari/ . She will bring up your case and help us figure out a way to address your unique circumstances.
2. Future Events
Based on your feedback we have submitted proposals to run both a Janeway and Monster token event. In addition we are planning on updating the Daily Login late in the month/early next month. Please note that all three of these events are likely to change format from previous implementations of these events. In particular Janeway will be more limited. We will share better details as they are finalized.
2-19-2021 Update: Tentatively these events were given the greenlight to move forward this week. The studio wishes for us to consider their Jump Event which as far as I know functions in a manner similar to Janeway. The planning is moving forward then a date will be fixed for when we can expect these events.
We are requesting the Happy Egg Festival to celebrate Easter in March. We have an older version of this event but would like a more up to date version.
- There have been questions about if events are going to be for all servers. We plan that for almost every event we want to implement it for all servers. That being said some contents and rewards will be adjusted for the rules set its being implemented on. For example RT cannot get a Kachua Key as a reward from the current Lunar event.
- We have confirmed that we will be getting a more up to date version of the Happy Egg Festival. We will be scheduling it for 3/25/2021.
- The forum creative content is ending soon please make sure to make your entries soon.
We will be having a meeting on Wednesday with the studio to finalize dates on when events will land. We have also requested the Spring Festival Event to arrive in April.
3. Lag and Disconnection Reports
We have been seeing a large uptick in random lag and disconnection reports centered around 8-10AM Pacific Time. If you are experiencing these issues, please report them every time so we can continue to forward them to the IT team.
2-19-2021 Update: The IT team has been fixing several issues found on the network. On our side, this issue appears to have improved. Are you still experiencing this issue?
4. Future Updates
We will continue to meet with the studio regarding upcoming updates. Currently the estimated time frame of April has not changed for our next content update. Internally we are still hammering away at documenting bug reports and fixing what we can while pushing the rest to the studio.
2-19-2021 Update: Currently we're at the phase where the update packages are compared to current files then it is determined what support from various teams are needed. We are receiving warnings that we may not receive the content for testing until May but everyone will make their best effort to try to get things faster. In March there will be a spotlight change at the start of the month. We have not forgotten the RT community and are assembling the Ninja and Gunslinger Update for testing and review.
5. New Kachua and Cash Shop Items
Currently we're working with the studio to do a new Kachua in March. In addition we have seen the consumable requests which we will review.
6. Maintenance 3-11-2021
Overall Maintenance will be focusing on bug reports and quality of life changes this week. We are planning to tackle the following pending issues.
- Update Costume Enchanter with a chunk of Lower Costumes
- Description Fixes
- Costume Firesale goes away
- Chinese New Year Event Ends
A note about the 3/4 Maintenance: Unfortunately in the lead up to maintenance this week we were asked by the studio to hold off on changes for a week or two while they review them for balance and other concerns. We have already submitted our data for the 3/11 patch and are going to see how this works. Tentatively this is what it looks like going forward.
3-11, 3-18, 3-25, etc: 50 or so costumes added to the enchanter every week until we have exhausted all our current costumes.
3-18: Spotlight Change/QoL Malangdo updates
3-18: Enriched Event Ends
Important Future Dates
3/25/2021 - Easter Event Starts
4/29/2021 - Blacksmith Rank 25% Reduction
7/29/2021 - Alchemist Rank Reset, Blacksmith Rank 25% Reduction
10/28/2021 - Blacksmith Rank 25% Reduction
@campitor, in your opinion , what is the state if iRO?we been voicing out, and things been looking bad from the way we see it.there's always this, lack of communication. even with this good afternoon thread,you simply say whatever you want, and it ends there.plus is there any miscommunication in your team?whatever you mention for the past week, nobody acted on it
As I updated in OP; Unfortunately in the lead up to maintenance this week we were asked by the studio to hold off on changes for a week or two while they review them for balance and other concerns. We have already submitted our data for the 3/11 patch and are going to see how this works.
IIRC IRO updated Corridor of Phantom already but somehow it has been dismissed. I wonder if the staffs can reconsider to open it.
Officially it is in testing right now. We are current doing internal tests and feedback to the studio on it.
