Early Access Update Stream 10 Notes
We’ve made it to 10 Update Streams since Early Access began! Onward with the news! I present to you… Roadmap 2!
GM Pie is not back yet from the great beyond so we will see him next week. Today’s stream will address some concerns and some explanations as well as upcoming future content.
August: 1. PvP Season 1 will begin!
PvP season will last 3-4 months. There will be 2 rewards, one based on your rank and the second reward will be on your season level. Its unsure if there will be a hard or soft reset on ranks each season. More details will come soon when it begins. Season levels will come from the new achievement system which will come in August.
Let us know in the feedback section if you want a hard or soft reset for ranks every season.
2. The Achievement system will work like the steam achievements but there will be 2 kinds. One will reset every season and tie into your season level, the second type, normal achievements, will be more like steam achievements but won’t reset at the end of the season.
3. Free-for-all Survival: A new PvP mode where multiple players will come together to compete, it could be last man standing, a point system, damage points based, or kills based. More info will come later. Basically KurtzPel Battle Royale (Yes they trolled us. This is why Pie isn’t here).
4. Conquest mode revamp is coming along with a new map!. It is now changed to a point system. It is completely revamped.
5. A HIGHLY REQUESTED FEATURE! Keyboard key customizations but… gamepads will not be supported YET.
6. New Boss Rush map along with a new reward.
7. SUMMER COSTUMES! Swimsuits are coming up in August! Get ready for those beach bods, be sure to wear sunscreen.
September:
8. The Guild System will be coming in September (First update perhaps).
9. A 6 player PvE mode will be coming along with the Guild update! The boss(es) will be designed so that if you’re not on top of your patterns, callouts, mechanics, you will fail. This may require multiple types of karmas and involve switches. It will be quite challenging and difficult. In order to play this mode, you must be a certain rank or higher.
10. A crafting system will be implemented in September. In-game rewards will be adjusted to be craft-able (No, not like minecraft or monster hunter). These will be cosmetic only. 11. New weapons, costumes, and accessories will be added. Supply box items will be rotating. There may be exclusive items in rotation and may feature some crossover items from other places.
October: October is not exactly laid out but this is whats beyond September or a “coming soon”.
12. NEW KARMA! Magic attack Breaker. Diabolic Witch will no longer be alone.
13. There will be 3 new PvE missions coming out with this Karma. Hint: This Karma has been suggested in the past.
14. A new PvP Mode (Hinted to be a raid style PvP Mode).
Side Note By the GMs:
There are different teams working on different things. Yes, they’re actively working on current issues but it isn’t the same team that is working on releasing new content. Do not fret when new content is released but issues still exist as they’re being worked on by a different team that is working to deal with the issues as soon as possible.
July 17th Maintenance will be another balance update mainly for Dual Souls. – Massacre – Wolf Fang – Demon Mode Next week event, 17th of July after maintenance!
Three week long log-in event (3 Phases): Prizes will be given for being logged in and playing KurtzPel. 30 minutes: 3 basic dye. 60 minutes: 2 intermediate dye. 90 minutes: 1 advanced dye. 120 minutes: 1 gold ring. Only 1 Gold Ring per week.
Week 1: 1 Gold Ring (Plus rewards listed above for the time played).
Week 2: 1 Gold Ring (Plus rewards listed above for the time played).
Week 3: 1 Gold Ring (Plus rewards listed above for the time played).
If two gold rings are obtained at the end of the event, you will receive an advanced Costume Supply Box. If three gold rings are obtained at the end of the event, you will receive a Rebirth ticket. Players will receive both the Rebirth Ticket and the Supply box for all the hours completed or if all 3 rings are obtained.
Test servers are being strongly considered. This will not be limited to G Ranks and it is technically a partner perk. Partnerships may have streamlined access. These are just suggestions but it is not promised. Partner position applications will be opened at a later date.
Early Access Update Stream #8 Notes 6/21/2019

Early Access Update Stream #8 Notes 6/21/2019

Early Access Update Stream 8 Notes

This week’s stream was hinted with the announcement, two simple words: Dual Souls Coming soon!

Side note: You’ll receive the necklaces when the event ends if you have the achievements.

1. They’re in the talks for Japanese dubs but as paid DLC because Japanese dubs are very very expensive.
2. Capture the flag: Removing CTF is not an option but all feedback has been noted from all social media platforms. CTF Feedback/Suggestions channel will open in the Discord. They will try to revamp it along with conquest. The reason why its not being removed from official probatio is because the Dev’s team goal is not just to have players kill, but to strategize as well. Please give your suggestions to be taken into consideration.
3. New Dual Souls Gameplay shown! The full clip will most likely be posted on youtube or the official website but here’s a clip (spared you all from the D Rank gameplay part):

4. They’re looking into the Gauntlet issues.
5. Its taking time to look into the desync and ping issues because they’re trying to apply the fix globally. 6. Guilds are being worked on, no exact date yet.
7. CP Cost still being discussed for Dual Souls, won’t be the same price.
8. Still working on hiding accessories. 9. We got :Jebaited: and another clip was shown:

 

 

10. Custom keybinds are being worked on

Early Access Update Stream 7 Notes

This weeks Stream is about upcoming Summer Updates! According to GM Pie, GM Rush ditched us to go to E3 this Stream. Have fun lining up at the Pokemon booth. Lets get into it!

1. SERVER SELECTION IS COMING! You can choose your own server now to play with your friends however you’ll have to start over. There’ll be no progress transfer. Items can be transferred via Steam Inventory.
2. PvE will be coming to custom missions.
3. Dual Souls will be coming in Early July! It will not be free, expect to grind CP/AP or purchase with money.
4. The same time Dual Souls comes, emotes and a ping system will be coming.
5. A friendslist will also be implemented early July.
6. New PvE mode: Boss Rush – Bosses will keep coming!
7. Conquest is getting a revamp and 1 new map. This will be coming soon. It will also return to Official Probatio aka ranked mode.
8. Guild System will be coming soon. You can see the Roadmap for the points above in the picture
9. Team training room is also being worked on.
10. Party member size increased to 3 is being looked into.
11. They’re looking into button layouts/keybinds because they were unaware of the keyboard layout difference in some regions.
12. Server locations: Asia servers are in Japan and Singapore. For EU its in Germany.
13. Dual Souls comes with 3 new PvE missions. 2 out of the 3 bosses were revealed in a previous Stream Update.
14. A costume design contest will definitely be held in the future.
15. More races in character creation are being worked on (not a priority atm).
16. Still finalizing the costs for Dual Souls (Definitely lower than 75k CP/AP).
17. Swim Suit Summer Costumes are a maybe (GM Jeff wants it).
18. Twitch Prime rewards are being looked into.
19. Emotes may be added in the CP Boxes.
20. They’ll think about CTF changes after they complete the revamp for Conquest.
21. The ping will be shown as a HUD indicator once server switching comes out.
22. Guild housing/customization will be considered.
23. Matchmaking for PvP prioritizes your rank. If there aren’t enough players of the same rank queueing, it will queue you against players of other ranks.
24. Battle Pass is a maybe.
25. Players who did not receive compensation needs to put in a ticket so that the Support Team can ask for certain info. The compensation will not be given out immediately.
26. Dual Souls is needed to be unlocked to do the new PvE missions.
27. They’re looking into the collision issue with Instant Chase/Reckless charge.

If you have bugs, please upload a video to Youtube and send them in a ticket or Bug Reports on Discord so that the issue can be fixed. It makes it infinitely more easier to address/fix.

Early Access Update Stream #5 Notes 5/31/2019

Early Access Update Stream #5 Notes 5/31/2019

Early Access Update Stream 5 Notes

*This one is a short one compared to last Stream, mostly Q/A. Let’s get into it: *

1) Back Attack will likely not return
2) Aerial escapes will likely not make it into the game. The devs are looking into other ways of balancing infinite combos.
3) If pets were implemented, they won’t have any sort of functionality.
4) Workshop has been considered but they need to weigh the benefits.
5) Air recovery didn’t exist in the game prior so if it were to be implemented, it might completely destroy the balance of the game so if they were to implement it, it would have to be done in a certain way.
6) No ETA for new races.
7) GM Pie is going to try to get a roadmap for things that will come for upcoming streams and possible release times for new content.
8) GM Pie would like to focus more on DM/current modes before expanding on to new modes.
9) The guild system is being worked on.
10) It is unsure if a traditional dungeon will be implemented but its possible.
11) Its possible DM may be the only mode for rank climbing but not at the moment.
12) They’re looking into the Netherlands, Belgium, etc. issue. For now please be patient and bare with them.
13) There will be tournaments for every region eventually.

Tournament on June 1st at 5 PM Pacific Time (PDT). Be sure to tune in! There’ll be a global reward, the Wheel of Truth Necklace, that will be given to all players once the stream reaches 2500 concurrent viewers!

Early Access Update Stream #4 Notes 5/24/2019

Here are the key points for Early Access Update Stream 4 and boy is it a big one:

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.

 

Silverwing Knights Outfit Set (Compensation Costume)

 

  • 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.
