During the next 24 hours, some hardware-stressing tests will be performed by our hosting company, and this will also influence the machine our server's running on, so you may experience minor lag and/or disconnections.
A major client update will be released this weekend, including a new set of palettes, a small update to hairstyles and several new official maps that will be used in the coming future for official content.
Alongside with new official map, a set of some custom maps will be introduced as well to improve our GM-Held events, as well as several fixed maps thanks to FlashCombo, and a new map event by Borf: The Maze!
Also, many of you are asking when we'll release the update that will bring in character-bound gender, instead of being account-bound. This update requires a new client, that despite being already released on both Hercules and rAthena forum, isn't fully supported, and many of its "options" are still missing and need to be added. We're actively working on it, but until all of its packets are successfully update, we won't be able to use it efficiently [anyone remember our current client in its early life when positioning was making the character randomly lag and buying shop was crashing the client?].
I'm sure you'll understand the issue and forgive us for the delay. I still expect to get it working in about 3 weeks
