Day 1 Recap29 July 2017 (18:37) by Gamemaster Knighter
Thanks so much for a HUGE day 1! So many new accounts it's insane. We're very happy to see the manual player base growing strong as well. We just want to thank everyone who stayed calm during any issues we had, which were minimal which is the good news. I thought I'd share with you all what us developers are working currently round the clock on to release/fix as soon as possible.
1. Several Bot Bugs, Trala is going full force on fixing these up.
2. Seasonal Achievements - These are currently unviewable, these will be released asap. Completing these is the sole "purpose" of the season, to earn achievement badges that can be used to buy powerful items/outfits/gear on regular Archlight. Many of these are more lategame focused though so no one is missing out currently.
3. Adding in seasonal leaderboards + highscores ingame.
4. Re-hauling the UI with a cleaner and more simple/less cluttered/less bulky UI.
5. Adding transparency options for all panels and chat panel
6. Making the UI scale based on your monitor size, we noticed everyone who had dislike towards the look of the client had a very small monitor, their screen scaled but the UI windows didn't.
7. Getting whitelisted on as many anti-virus softwares as possible to make installing less problematic for many.

Season 1 - FAQ24 July 2017 (23:48) by Gamemaster Knighter
Season One FAQ
Q: When does the season start?
A: July 28th, 9:00AM PST (12:00 EST / 18:00 CEST)
Q: Do I have to make a new account to play in the season?
A: Yes, you must create a new account to be eligible to make a seasonal character. If you don't, your character will simply login the main Archlight World.
Q: When can I download the client?
A: The ArchLauncher/Client will be available for download on July 27th
Q: How long is a season?
A: A season lasts 4-8 weeks, this depends on the progression rate, we aim for future seasons to last 8 weeks each, and release a new season with all unique new content every 12-16 weeks.
Q: What happens to our characters when a season ends?
A: When the season ends, all seasonal characters are added to the Archlight World. You can choose whether to keep your character and play it, or disenchant it, which strips the character of all it's experience, stats, skills and equipment, putting it on scrolls. These scrolls can then be redeemed on your old or main character.
Q: How do we get Seasonal Badges? What are they for?
A: Seasonal Badges are awarded at the end of a season based on how many Achievement Points you have earned that season. This is a scaling amount. What this means is if you have 25 achievement points, you will earn 25 seasonal badges, however, if you have 100 achievement points, you will earn 150 seasonal badges, if you have 175 points, you will earn 350 badges. Seasonal badges can be spent at an NPC at the end of a season to buy powerful items, upgrades, and cosmetics.
Q: Can I play on main Archlight while playing the season?
A: Yes, you can play on both at the same time, however the IP limit of 4 characters at once still exists.
Q: Are experience rates the same as Archlight Main?
A: The experience rates on Archlight in general are being lowered. This is due to us no longer prestiging characters, in which you play back from level 8 again. This means getting to 2500 (Soft Capp, when players awaken) will take much longer than before. You will notice this in the Season. However, in the season, you awaken at level 1500 already.
Q: When will the $1000 Tournament Be?
A: The $1000 Tournament is split over 2 days. August 19th and 20th. The prizepool is split over 2 separate events. $500 in prizes on each day. The first day of the tournament is a template character 4v4 tournament, in which competitors are given characters with the same stats, equipment, skills and level. Teams can only have 1 of each vocation max. The second day (20th) players use their seasonal characters, in teams of 4, any vocation combo they wish and compete for a second $500 of prizes!
Archlight Servers21 July 2017 (01:53) by Gamemaster Knighter
The Archlight Servers are going down for 7 days to prepare for Season 1 at 10:00am PST July 21st.
Season 1 and regular Archlight share the same world, this includes connection limits, you can connect to both at the same time, however the max connections per IP still exists (which is 4). This means you can have your main character active on Archlight while playing the Season etc.
Thank you all and we look forward to July 28th!!
