What’s being discussed?
The development team is working very hard more brand new content for all of you, but they are also working on addressing some concerns that have been in the community.

  • Galactic War – the team is aware that there are still a large number of players that don’t enjoy Galactic War. They are working on ways to make the mode a little less frustrating and not take quite as long to complete.
  • Characters – thank you to everyone who has posted their feedback for characters. The team is reviewing it all and taking player feedback into consideration when making adjustments to certain characters.
  • Pre-crafted gear – this is a very hot topic still and the team is aware of it. Please stay tuned as we hope to have more to share on this next week.
  • Guild Hopping – another hot topic that we’ve been talking about in the studio. While no action will be taken against players who are doing this currently, know that we’ll likely be changing some of the mechanics surrounding this in the near future.
  • Raid Rewards – we have been listening to player feedback and are discussing options for how we can adjust the current system.

Have a great weekend everyone and remember, the Omega Battles will be back again this weekend, so be sure to take part in them for credits and ability materials!
