    Greetings Cosmonauts!

    Wow it's been a crazy few weeks, complete with some very interesting challenges! First and foremost a shoutout to the staff members and community members who have been assisting us in testing and the developers who have been working their fingers off! Normally these updates would not be released until Friday but some of these things I think need to be released ASAP so here's what we have in store after reboots!

    Enchant Rebalance and Updates: The rumored glitched swords!
    Castle's /pv's
    Teleportation Update
    /Block Update
    Updates to Filter
    Captcha Update
    /Smite
    /f tag Update
    Patch Notes from the past few weeks


    Enchant Rebalance and Updates
    As most of you know the staff have been working diligently to try and assist our developers in creating a more balanced pvp environment when working with swords. After numerous hours of testing including community members and staff members we have done the following to assist in rebalancing swords, pvp, as well as other enchants out there!
    • Thundering Blow: No longer in testing phase and will now do damage again
    • Leadership: Capped so that only 5 faction/ally members can affect you and the overall affect has been capped
    • Silence and Solitude: Proc rates were decreased to a more palatable level
    • Rage, Double Strike, and Execute: These enchants will not proc in combination with the others. For example, if your Double Strike procs it will not have rage stacks on it.
    • Disintegrate and Demonforged: Will not proc at the same time and their overall durability damage has been nerfed.
    • Kill Aura: Notifications in chat have been removed and instead offer a particle effect

    Castle's /pv's
    It was recently brought to the attention of upper staff that Castle had mysteriously gained access to /pv's so players will now only be able to WITHDRAW items from their /pv on Castle planet.


    Teleportation Update

    This one has been in the works awhile and I'm stoked to have it available to you all after reboots!
    Teleportation Request Colors and /nick
    /tpaccept
    /f tptoggle


    Teleportation Request Colors
    After reboots players will be able easily identify whether someone is teleporting to you, or requesting you teleport to them at a glance, add to that, the player's actual IGN will now show in the teleportation request! If it's blue, they're tp'ing to you, pink on the other hand, should make you think (oh god the cringe!). No, but really, this should help keep things crystal clear!

    /tpaccept
    As an added security measure we've implemented the ability for you to ensure you're accepting the right teleportation request. Players will, after reboots, be able to /tpaccept <IGN>. If that player was the last to send a tp request, you'll accept their's. If they weren't the last to send a tp request, then it will say "No pending requests". Teleportation sniping should be a thing of the past with this gem!

    /f tptoggle
    That's right, we've added something new as well. Players are able to execute the command /f tptoggle. This will make it so that ONLY Faction members can teleport to you! Another added security measure for those of you who, like me, are paranoid about people sneak tp'ing :p

    /Block Update
    Many players have requested a means to remove everyone on their blocked list. Players can, after reboots, execute /block clear, which will clear their entire blocked list :)

    Updates to Filter
    Quality of Life here, fire charges have been added to /filter and you can, after reboots, use /filter toggle at outposts!


    Captcha Update
    Some players had issues reading what the Captcha, while grinding, was asking you to find, especially in low light situations. To assist with this we have changed the color of the item request to gold :)


    /Smite
    Yup, if your rank allows you access to /lightning we've added the ability for you to use /smite to make things a little easier :D


    /f tag Update
    Yeah we know you trolls out there love to play the /f tag game, but now, players will have to confirm when they wish to change /f tag.
