So as many of you know and many others are finding out, we have a NEW HD Remastered Lineage client! I’ve been working on translating and recoding the server to work with this new client since December. Its finally getting close to push it to live, (forcing everyone to update to this new client to connect to the server). However, it is still not quite ready. There are bugs that need to be found so that way the experience when it goes live is a positive one, not a bumpy dev hell.
To get things tested and on the right track for an October release, We’ll be having a beta event where you can earn rewards on the live server, by playing the test server!
How to Connect
Follow the download and instructions here: Open Beta Connection Guide. Should be pretty easy to download and install as the connector does most of the heavy lifting.
The test server has had its player base wiped for this event, So that everyone starts on the same foot. The progression of players on the test server will reward you on the live server when the new client goes live.
There are also some things that will be synchronized between the test server and live server. More on that below.
There are several types of rewards that will be given out for this event. To get the rewards your test server character must be on the same account and character name as your live server account. They fall in these categories:
Tier Rewards - Rewards for reaching a certain tier on the test server for each character.
T5 Level Rewards - Rewards for reaching milestones on your T5 Character and Subclass
Character Rankings - The Top characters on the test server at the end of the event will receive bonus rewards
Issue Bounty - For issues reported during this event that are not duplicate, you’ll receive some items on the test server to help you progress.
Server Sync Features Added
To ensure the live server and test server are able to function together rather than separate entities, there are some features that were recently built to bridge the two servers. They are as follows:
Donation Sync - When you donate on the live server, Gift Coins, happy buffs and pandora passes are delivered to both the test server and the live server.
Voteing AA Sync - When you vote on the top sites at www.l15server.com, you get ancient adena credits on both servers as well.
Global Chat Sync - When you chat in global on the live or test server, both servers will se it. [L] shows up if the message is from live server and [TS] shows up if its from the test server.
