Early Access Update Stream 4 Notes

 

I pressed the wrong button. Hello? Hello?? – GM Pie

Unfortunately its not thigh slider time… Not yet at least.

BIG PATCH INCOMING ON JUNE 5th WITH EU RELEASE

This will be the first official maintenance after all the emergency maintenance we’ve been getting.Note: Most requested/feedback that has been addressed in this Stream has been bolded.

 

  • There will be tiers of partners and it will be selective. More news about it will be coming soon.

  • The Stat redistribution will be added to the game for the cost of CP. The cost will be told at a later date. Pie said that the cost will be do-able unlike the initial 75K Karma grind. It can be done at the Tome in the library located in the Hub.

  • Supply boxes will be opened slightly differently. A new supply box UI will be implemented so that you can open the Supply boxes in game instead of through steam. It will be more easily accessible and the item will appear in your inventory first now rather than the steam inventory. If you wish to sell, you’ll have to move it from your In-game inventory to your Steam inventory.

  • Exclusive CP and AP supply boxes will be added and purchasable in game. AP will work differently for the boxes, you will have to fill a separate AP gauge in order to purchase AP supply boxes. Unfortunately your current AP will not be use-able, it will be as if the boxes have their own AP (like NPC affinity). These boxes will be called basic supply boxes and they differ from advanced supply boxes because it will have lower drop rates. Advanced supply boxes will also be purchasable but will cost significantly more than Basic Supply boxes.

  • 4 New items will be added to the Supply boxes, 1 new weapon for each Karma.

  • A function will be added to get up to 5 dyes at once rather than 1 from Supply boxes.

  • The drop rates for weapons for weapon boxes are being changed. After June 5th, it will be 16% rather than 8%. The percent of getting dye will be 20% rather than the previous 25%.

  • The same change will be applied for the Costume box. 41% for a costume piece, previously 40% and the Dyes will be lowered to 22% from their current rate.

  • Currently only PvP affects rank, now there will be casual matchmaking that will not affect ranks. Casual matchmaking will be limited to only 3v3 for now, its entirely for fun.

  • Conquest is being removed from Official Ranked PvP. Only Deathmatch and CTF. Conquest will be revamped and added later. It will remain in casual matchmaking.

  • Changes to PvP: The comeback mechanic that allowed players to get more points at a faster rate is removed.

  • Death timer will not exceed 10 seconds anymore if you die a lot.

  • The timer in Conquest will be slower and the grey area will also be decreased in Casual Mode.

  • A function to view player info will be added to the lobby so you can stalk what people in the hub wear.

  • A kill feed/log is being added so now you know when someone is dead.

  • Screenshot mode will be implemented to hide the UI.

  • Compensation outfits will be coming on June 5th. It will also be purchasable separately for those who didn’t buy the two Karmas. Limited time sale until July 31st. The costume set also comes with underwear and the burgundy color will be changed when dyed. This set is known as the Silver Winged Knight Set. The price will come at a later date for those who wish to purchase it.

  • ASIA RELEASE WILL NOW BE JUNE 5TH EVERYONE CAN NOW PLAY! Except… Belgium, Netherlands, Isle of Man, and Korea due to legal reasons. There are different plans for Korea. The other 3 countries have legal issues with Random supply boxes in gaming. It will release at 9 AM PDT Global (Do the time conversions). The regions cannot be changed due to ping issues so no server changes. Server locations will be revealed at a later date.

  • Dual Souls, Emotes, and Guild info will come soonish.

  • GM Jeff just spoiled and said Dual Souls will be coming sometime this Summer.

  • They’re looking into a way to separate lobbies based on language.

  • They heard about the infinite Combos and are thinking of ways to fix it.

  • First ever Event!: Memorial Day Event. To celebrate and to apologize to people that bought Supply boxes and got 1 dye each, there will be a log-in event for each day starting tomorrow, Saturday and will last 3 days. Log in for a total of 1 hour to get 1 dye of each tier per day. 1 Adv Costume supply box if you log-in for all days. If you don’t get a notification about getting the dye, worry not, it will still be in your inventory. This event will only be for NA/SA.

  • Korean text will be removed in-game. Voice-overs will remain.

 

Next week Saturday on June 1st, there will be an Official KurtzPel PvP Tournament by KOG. Sign up will open early next week. Make sure to sign up if you think you’re good enough! GM Rush and Faviahn will be the hosts. There will be a milestone viewership event. If the goal is met, everyone, globally, will receive a custom in-game accessory.

 

General Reminder for everyone: If you’re VPN-ing into different servers, you’ll have to start over in your local server. Please be sure to relay feedback. Provide constructive Feedback with video proof as this will work in your favor so that they can address things properly. GMs are always listening.

Early Access Update Stream #1 Notes 5/3/2019

Early Access Update Stream #1 Notes 5/3/2019

Here are the key points from the first Update Stream since Early Access for NA/SA!

 

The Dev Team has strongly taken our feedback into consideration and are going to be changing core aspects of the game. KOG would like to apologize. They had the right intentions and have been developing the game for 3 years but it doesn’t necessarily mean they are done for the right reasons. KOG would like to apologize and Thank you for being here. GET READY MASSIVE CHANGES INCOMING!

 

KOG would like to apologize for saying it is not P2W and then pulling something like this. There was a lot of heated Discussion and GM Jeff fought like HELL for us. They admit to not taking a better look at the bigger picture and are going to be implementing these changes ASAP. They do not want the game to be grind to win or pay to win. The game was originally created to be Buy to Play but decided to go Free To Play to cater to a greater audience. Please let them know what you would like changed. Keep in mind there are things that will not be agreed to and things that will be agreed to. These changes are something everyone will agree to. They want to let us know they are listening and us being upset makes them upset. GM Pie would like to emphasize “NO PAY TO WIN”.

 

  • The prices for Fist Karma and Diabolic Witch will be free when it can be implemented. Currently it will still be priced and grindable. It is being worked on with Steam and for those who have spent money, they are making a costume that is equivalent to the Vanguard set. Whoever bought the karmas will be getting a new costume. Players will be getting costumes for compensation for buying them or grinding them. The costume is being made RIGHT NOW so it make take some time. These changes will take some time because they have to go through Steam. It will take a bit of time and this is not an NA Exclusive. People who have bought Founder’s Pack will receive the same level of compensation.

  • A certain function of the Rebirth Ticket is the issue. They did not think it would impact the game as much as it did. Through our feedback we were able to show them this. They are working on a feature to redistributes stats for free.

  • The EA Access release for EU is June 5th.

  • CP/AP Stat Distribution is being aimed to release at the same time as EU Release.

  • EU will be starting fresh in their own server with these changes implemented.

  • Asia is being targeted for July 3rd. New Zealand and Australia will be joining Asian servers.

  • The game booting to solo channel is being worked on.

  • Players who are missing CBT rewards are also being worked on when the issue is found.

  • Please report players who are circumventing or bypassing region locks. There is a support option on the main site to send a support ticket to report these players.

  • When you press ESC in game there is a help button that also allows you to send tickets through there.

  • People who don’t have one costume to fill other accessory slots is an issue. All accessories have the same stats but not having the accessory is the main issue. CP/AP Lootboxes are being developed to purchase in-game so costumes are grind-able.

  • They are working on letting us know what is in the lootboxes so you know what you’re purchasing.

  • They are checking on the latency issues between NA/SA servers. They do have an SA server and are working on the latency SA may be receiving.

  • Social/Community features are being worked on but there is a lot of development that needs to be done before this is implemented.

  • Key Binding is still being pushed.

  • They are looking into the long mission cooldowns.

  • Thigh sliders are not off the table! It is still being discussed.

  • Please report any bugs you find by pressing ESC and clicking the help button. (Joke is you can’t do it while in a party because it makes you leave which is an issue in itself).

  • All future content is possible but it all depends on what is relevant. It is the player’s jobs to provide feedback for what they would like to see in the game.

  • No ETA for Dual Souls yet but it is coming.

  • They would have to figure out how we can hide certain gear as players have requested.

 

Hint Hint, Please give good reviews on Steam Kappa. Flip those frowns upside down.

 

Recap

  • Blazing Fist and Diabolic Witch will be Free-to-Play. All karmas will be accessible but in the beginning you will still have to choose between sword or bow. They will be updating us in real-time when this will become available.
  • Stat distribution will be a free-to-play feature.
  • To re-emphasize, we will be getting a costume that has not been seen before. We will be shown the costume when they get the final design.
  • The Karmas will be obtainable as it was in CBT (Completing the 3 missions to unlock it).

Please make suggestions in the Discord. If you would like to see something in the game.

Update Stream #8 Notes 4/26/2019

Update Stream #8 Notes 4/26/2019

Here are the key points from Update Stream #8

 

Discussion about possible solutions regarding Rebirthing: Free Rebirthing once a month or buying Rebirth using CP. MMOHuts also suggested that there be a trial for Karmas so that the Karmas can be tested.

 

The GMs and Devs are listening to all issues/concerns, please be civil regarding the issues.

 

  • Once EA is over, the Vanguard Costume set will never again be available, it is exclusive to this launch.

  • The reason for making Fists and Staff premium DLC is because PvP is the backbone of the game and players need to be incentivized to play the game and unlock the karma they want.

  • 3v3 will be available in Custom Matches on release.

  • There will be a page on the site that will allow players to apply for Moderator/Volunteer positions. Target date April 30th.

  • KurtzPel will have a partnership program.

  • Rebirth rework is being strongly considered. They are aware of the pricing for Rebirth and how Rebirth can affect PvP because of the stat changes when switching to different Karmas.

  • Pre-download is being confirmed.

  • There will be player to player trading using the Steam Marketplace.

  • EU KurtzPel will be published by KOG.
