  • Hi guys,

    unfortunately we don't have any dates for February yet but I'll let you know as soon as information becomes available. We know that you'd like to have the upcoming worlds lists earlier and our team is still working to improve the process and make it happen :)

    the later the start begins, the fewer people will take part in the game, so the end of the round will be in July and not everyone will be able to play

    Georgi I don't want to the the guy spreading negativity around .. but can you please try to speak some sense into your Business Department on the behalf of us loyal fans of the game? It makes no sense to delay the announcement of the dates of launch in this way. The only explanation we as customers can see is that the Business side of this great game is trying to eat its own tail, trying to push players to get impatient and buy some gold on Speed and Local servers before you announce the COMx1 server(s). It's kind of humiliating to us players if this is indeed the case.

  • Hey there Scorox

    I can assure you that this is not the case and the team is in no way delaying announcements on purpose. We're posting them as soon as the dates have been decided on and are working to do that even faster. Your feedback is appreciated and was already forwarded to the responsible people :)

    I believe there's 3-4 com servers that are waiting to start right now, is there an actual reason for the delay? Are you shutting down one of the com servers and spreading the starts more apart because of that? Or will you start all 3 of them just weeks apart of each other? I know i play only com2 (same as many people in our team), and if it'll take months for it to restart, TG will miss out on a lot of revenue.

    Georgi thanks for the fast reply. But, if you can assure us that the announcement is not delayed on purpose... then the only conclusion one can come to is that you know the reason for the delay, which if not being on purpose has to be caused by some unintended or unforeseen event. I'm sorry if I jumped the guns here, hopefully no one in your team have gone seriously ill or something like that. Anyway, sorry for bothering you with this... it all just seem so 8| without any update on the situation.

  • Hi again

    Georgi thanks for the fast reply.

    There is no reason for the delay because this is technically not a 'delay' at all. The announcements are being made as soon as the dates for the next servers are determined. In order for us to announce the servers earlier, they need to be planned and decided on earlier which involves a lot of people in the HQ and is not as easy as it sounds to improve this process and speed it up. We're giving you as much updates on this as possible, but at the time there is no further information we have to share.


    I predict! The server x3 will start and in a couple of days there will be an announcement. Announcement before starting the server x3 do not wait Am I right @Georgi?

    Yes, you are right that x3 server announcements do not wait, like all other server announcements but that doesn't mean there will be an announcement about 3x worlds soon. There is no conspiracy or shady tactics here and I hope I've made this clear with the above explanation.


    Kind regards

  • Dear players,


    we do have a rough plan on when the next game worlds are starting, but that one is in constant rework. We are announcing the game worlds as soon as we have a fixed date. Actually, our lobby calendar is linked to the internal ordering tool and will display the next game rounds first.


    Yes, we have some delays in announcing them for known reasons:

    • We are in the middle of changing the internal ordering and setting up software for new servers
    • The internal workflows concering new worlds have shifted, too
    • Linked to the domain merges, the game round start rhythm has changed


    We also want to announce the new game round starts as soon as possible. I hope, these insights will through a little light on the matter. Cross your fingers that we will be back to the normal early announcements, soon.


    kind regards,


    BridgetB


    UPDATE: Thank you Georgi for bringing this topic to my attention so quickly. It is true what you wrote.

  • There is no reason for the delay because this can't actually be called 'delay' at all. The announcements are being made as soon as the dates for the next servers are determined.

    Ok, thanks again. But what I think we meant with delay was not the Delay of Announcement .. but rather the Delay of "determining" the launch dates of the next servers, and subsequently handing this information over to the people responsible of Announcing the decision. But it seems kind of odd that the people at HQ would at this point in time just shrug their shoulders saying "I don't know...." in response to someone asking "Hey, what about these COM1, COM6, and COM2 servers? .. " .. I mean, what can outsiders like us deduct from the delay of the "decision" other the speculations of short term business strategy or, alternatively, some sort of neglect.


    (I posted this before seeing BridgetB 's post .. which really clarified the situation I think. Thanks a lot.)

  • thank you so much for the answer! But this information should have been given in early January, and not to hide information from the public.
