Yeah, draw distance is crazy too short, even while solo'ing outside of the event. If you have to be close enough to shoot them before you see them, that's way too close. (Yes I tested, I could target them and see their name over their head while outside shooting range, but the mob itself only loaded right at the edge of my firing range, which was 80 meters?) I had all settings on ultra.

That was fun, thanks 🙂

Think you've addressed the main issues that we encountered.

I noticed that selecting a characters underwear in the character creator and colouring it worked but if you then wore a skirt over it, in flight your character flashed its underwear which had reverted to the default white. Not a major thing but annoying for a character dressed all in black.

It's very difficult to see what NPC or teammate you have selected. There's a ring on the ground but that can't be seen at any distance and in a fight it vanishes under all the other effects. I've seen some games help get around this issue by having a compass of sorts on the screen with a small arrow on it showing what direction your currently selected target is in. Or maybe you could just add an arrow like the one that appears on the minimap for Ambassador (green for a friend, red for an enemy?). I think we need something.

OK, so run number 3 of the invasion event has just succeeded. We learned a lot, and some focus area will include these items:

1. Probable server memory leak...lag going up on each successive run, and back down to a much lower level when we restarted the servers.

2. Chat server issues and delays resulting from this.

3. We will at least test having the Nags fight in teams. That takes a bit of work. but it will make the fight less chaotic.

4. Our own teaming needs to be looked at. Some messages may have been going astray, and we want that to work perfectly. Also we need to make it easier to heal teammates through their pictures.

5. Running back to the fight after a hospital trip...it takes too long to load the heroes and the enemies under the Arches.

Let us know what else people want to see addressed.

We just sent the keys.

But we will send a few more to the inevitable late-responders.

I see that about 50 new people clicked the button today. That is wonderful. 🙂

Looking forward to that. Though I wish I'd thought to check here first. Just registered again. Whoops 😉

I'm going to see how many times it will let me register... 😀 Embarassed

The button works -- we need to change the text around it. We found that people kept right on registering...on the 15th, the 16, the 17th... so we just rolled with it and used that list for the event on the 22nd as well.

We will send keys to everyone who got them for the 15th and the 22nd. It's one big list now. 🙂

And thanks for the reminder. We need to update the text on that button. the guy who does that is making the newsletter e-version right now.

Sounds great! Do we have to register for this one or are keys being sent out to everybody?
Querying that because the button on the front page still links to the event of the 15th 😉

OK, after two official events, now we are dialing in on getting this event to hum.

We have the FPS, and the powers seem to be working.

Crashes have been suppressed. Thanks to all who sent us your crash logs!

We will go again on the 29th! Please, everyone come! We want to try to crush the server. 🙂 If we can get 50, 60, or 70 at once, that will be awesome.

Oh, and the Berserker is now much more challenging, so be ready. 🙂

And anyone who wants to make suggestions on how to make this even more fun -- don't be shy. We are listening to all of you.
