Hello everyone. I hope you are enjoing the fresh start.
We are currently working to fix a lot of small bugs (mainly guild and extract bugs). They have been already reported to the dev and they should be finished asap. Don't worry, is not SOON, we are really working.
Also about the drops my GMs have been working on a complete new drop table for a lot of dungeons (including b3f) and that's why we are taking a bit longer to modify it. We are on the final steps and today or tomorrow we will ask the dev to start working on it. It should take him a couple of days and when it's done the GMs will test it for 1 day or 2 and then, when everything is ok, we should add it to the live server.
I hope you like it!
First of all, let me apologies again for last week.
Second, I see a lot of you are enjoying the new server so all the Elite team, the Gms, the webmaster, the dev and myself are working hard to surprise you with a couple of changes that we will be making this week.
First of all, we will be improving the dungeon chest drops. We have already made a list of items to add to the drop that will improve your gaming experience.
Second of all the dungeon that I promised is still under testing and will come out this week too.
Third and last (for now) we are working on endgame events to entertain you all.
As I'm sure you are aware, the server has been down for the past few days.
I can assure you that the developer, the GM team and myself did all that we could during this time but we have some unfortunate news.
For an unknown reason, the server (for which we have been using for the past 2 years) that contained all of the Elite Cabal database and the backups caught fire and melted.
As a result all of the old character data, inventory, items, guilds and other databases cannot be recovered. We have no other option but to start the server over.
We know this is as massive inconvenience and not at all what you all diserve, but we couldn't prevent a fire in the server room and the hdd where everything was is gone. The GM team and the developer are going to be working non-stop over the next few days to improve our new server.
I understand a lot of you will want to leave the server, and quite a few will want to punch me in my face. I can only say im very sorry and we did what we could. I only hope this is a fresh start for the server and we will be able to handle things better now.
The server is now online and you can login but first you all need to register a new account since old accounts are gone. It will be in "beta" mode, this will last for two weeks.
To compensate as much as we can to all players we will be granting the following features:
-Drop rates will be higher and there will be a chance to get PERMANENT perfect deathblow items and epic accessories.
-All new characters will be instantly level 190, Class Rank 20 and have Honor Rank 11.
-Your will receive a free permanent Osmium set (With Max Critical Rate, HP and a high upgrade) as well as Red-Osmium weapons (also with good slots and a high upgrade) along with an epaulet and good accessories.
-You will be given 40 Stain Clones to help you with getting the first part of Battle Mode 3.
-You will get a free pet of your choice.
-All items in the web store will be discounted by 30%
-For one month the amount of vote coins gained will double, after the month is over, the vote coin amount will decrease to a value higher than it was previously.
The pets will be given manually; we will give further instructions on how to get these when we are ready.
After beta is over nothing will be deleted. The only thing that will happen is that any characters created will not receive these rewards and the drops and web shop prices will go back to normal.
Despite this, donations were stored differently and we were able to recover donation logs which have registered emails attached to them. Donators will be compensated as much as we can.
Looking towards the future we really want to provide you with the best Cabal server we can.
We have huge updates such as EOD BF3 coming up as well as Awakened FT2 (which includes the new ring, Archridium epaulets and the new Astral Bike (PW5)) along with some cool extras like new costumes which will be implemented as soon as/shortly after the beta is over.
We are also looking into adding the new Gladiator class but at the moment the episode 8 files require us to replace a class so instead we will wait for the full update to become available so no classes have to be retired. As well as this if we replace a class in Episode 8 when we upgrade to the newest Episode the files may be incompatible so it's safer for everyone in the long run.
Once again we are very sorry for the inconvenience, we hope you will stay with us throughout this difficult time and help us to rebuild the server to be the best there is!
