    Hey there!
    Small update on what's coming this summer to Skelth. At the moment it's pretty clear that we won't get EU update in July, so here we go:

    July: NPC buffer (Like Moody, but without XP bonus)
    Actually, we'd like to get something more intense, but we can't request any complicated events in the "old" version anymore, so we need to stick with what we have.

    Still not known, but targeted until the end of summer:
    • Update release (The Seven Signs)
    • X1.5
    • Attendance event
    • Heroes Welcome promotion
    Now, a quick question: last time the patchnotes info appeared late, I'm still sorry about that. We reworked the process and this time I can make preliminary patchnotes and then release a full version as before. But of course, the preliminary version may contain minor mistakes, lack certain info, etc. And I'm afraid that some may make decisions based on this non-final info.

    So, would you rather:
    1. get this preliminary information and full patchnotes near the update release or
    2. get the full version only?

    Why not doing something with live GMs during a week end (if you have the want to, of course). Something simple and stupid, like a free race between two points without the map, a trivia game on Lineage II, running around with shoes doing boing boing, anything :D

    Nice idea! Running, hiding, searching mini games where everyone is a winner with Rice Cake or stuff like that prizes. Everybody happy, easy to do ^^ :p

    Don't GMs work on Moscow business hours? Having an event at say 21:00 central, that would mean a GM needs to work overtime at like 23:00 moscow time.

    So "Moody" is only coming to give buffs? That's not really an event... And no other events planned till the patch? No contests? No GM Events? How many games do you know that don't have events during July/August? I'm disappointed, and that's my honest feedback to this.


    Here's my schedule then:
    • Go outside
    • Enjoy summer
    • Wait for new patch and hope it doesn't break the server

    No harm in giving us the information you have now, even if some things are left out or subject to change, any news regarding this type of stuff is good news.

    Exactly, hence why I added something like "if they want to". I understand how hard it is for such events

    Thanks for information even tho it's terrible <3

    Main supports love the "only buff event" as the only few ppl playing without box can exp solo too and few active supports can enjoy summer :) Good thinking

    Well, GMs have either fixed "business hours" schedule or important job outside of that (bot hunting etc), so you are right, making it all summer isn't possible.

    The feedback from the last event with running around or quiz wasn't nice ( Soooo, idk, should we do that again?

    Don't you think that feedback was bad because it was handled poorly? You have made gm buffs + quiz start at 7 but didn't inform ppl that they will have to wait whole quiz to get buffs so ppl interested in buffs only were frustrated. Not to mentione you made very long pauses between questions so maybe just reconsider the execution a little bit. Maybe prepare some hide and seek with hints with reward for ppl who finds you within 30 minutes and some bonus for 1st 3 ppl...doesn't have to be lag fest in Giran :)

    Months waiting for ........ nothing..... omg.

    We all knew that with a 3- month subcription promotion they would not put the new content before those 3 months.

    And the worst of all is that we do not have an approximate date for the next 3 months, and there is no worthy event that holds people here .

    level 80 is done. Enjoy the summer, it does not make sense to waste time here.

    Watemelon is considered a complicated one as it has a huge item list that cannot be verified in the "old" version.
