Update 2.4.2 - Server Maintenance - Update

UPDATE:

We have addressed the issues that have appeared in the game with the new client update. We are submitting a new client update for Google Play and Amazon to fix the in app purchases (IAP) issues that are making the game crash and locking players out of the game. These new client updates will be available within 24-48 hours of this post. They will include fixes to the Guild Message of the Day, Raid Messages and Searching for Guilds. Unfortunately, iOS will have to wait for those fixes until we submit another client update.

Heroes!

There will be a server maintenance period on Wednesday 6/24 at 11am EDT / 3pm GMT. We anticipate a downtime of approximately 4 hours to deploy game update 2.4.2! This update will bring you the Were-chef event and bug fixes! We thank you for your patience during this maintenance period.

Affiliation with R2... :-/

R2 have an awful reputation across the board for low-quality products, money-grabbing, player disconnect and lousy communications. I've played some of their games and my (subjective) experience supports that reputation.

This is not encouraging news.

It is funny that their wikipedia page is one big slam on them and free-to-play games in general. BBB gives them an F (Kabam had a B).

From my reading this morning, it appears that they primarily take Asian games, slap on a quick English translation and milk for the most part. That won't be an issue here. During the Kabam era, I never saw Kabam's impact (beyond recruiting new players). As long as this arraignment is focused on player recruitment, I think it will be okay. If Venan gave up control over pricing or gameplay, then there could be trouble.

Always better to announce a longer downtime and then beat it. Good job!

They know about the quest one. I saw Chem saying they were looking into it on Global.

I don't know the last time I actually looked at a guild ticker. :D
