    Hello Apocalypse Community!

    It’s been too long since we’ve sent out a status update on the project, and direction update so we apologize for that. Over the last many weeks and months, the team has been heads down working on an array of updates for this game of War that we all love. It has been an exciting several months since launch! Many advancements in terms of the overall game have been made, but most importantly as a management team we have learned many things regarding the community and appreciate all the feedback/support you have all been providing us.

    Here is what we are currently working on:
    • Lost Vale Left wing – Nearing completion
    • Scenario – Surprise SC event for the community
    • New Major Boss event – Secret
    • Encounter creation system
    • New Forums – Nearing completion
    • RVR Rewards and bounty – Delivered but needs to be refined
    • 2D/3D weapons project – This is actively underway. The team is creating new weapons with new appearances to be released soon
    • Ability Damage reverted to pure 1.4.8 – Nearing Completion
    • Balance team analyzing abilities to be reverted to 1.4.8 – Underway

    Regarding the recent RVR rewards system. This has been long in the making with a very strenuous amount of effort put in by the developers. Consider the release so far as a beta of the rewards system. We are working on the issues that we have already run into, and once it is completely stabilized we will be refining what rewards are given.

    Also, regarding the push to 1.4.8, the reason for this is to provide the most accurate baseline/foundation for the future of the game. The current client version is truly 1.4.8, so we are getting everything back to what the client is looking for, and then moving forward from there.

    Following the completion of these major projects, the team will be taking a step back to focus on Community/Player Quality of Life Changes. Bug fixes, New Player Experience, In-game progression, RvR Progression, Player life cycle (Mapping out what a player will be doing for an entire year), New launcher fully utilizing our API integration, Art team focus on creating new weapon designs, the true reversion of abilities to 1.4.8, and internal tools to make development of projects much easier. Most Importantly we will be taking a step back to focus on YOU, the community! We will be sending out a survey soon looking for feedback on what we can be doing better, and what we can be doing to keep you in the game that we all love. The largest part of our mission is to not only restore the true feel of the game we love, but also keep it driven for the community and by the community.

    Patch Notes 18 Oct 2018

    Patch Notes 8 Oct 2018

    • Fixed renown lost last night for some accounts
    • Keep doors, lords and champions are now less strong in low VP situations

    RR Gain / Level changes

    As Indor mentioned a few weeks ago, we've been reviewing the RR gains within Apoc, and have made a few more adjustments to the RP gain curve. The changes are now more gradual, rather than being stagged on the 10 RR level boundary.
    Low level characters will gain quickly, but that rate will slow as they head into the late 30s, 40s.
    We'll keep an eye on the progression and how quickly/slowly RR gain is occuring over the coming days.
    -Ik
    Edit - rolled changes back. We believe the large gains were mainly a visual bug, but we'll double check.

    Patch Notes 06 Oct 2018

    • Fix for dead / naked on new character creation
    • Fixed issue with RR gain post RR 40
    • New SC rotation : Gates of Ekrund, Mourkain Temple, Battle For Praag, Reikland Factory,Tor Anroc

    • Quitter debuff removed from scenarios
    • Gates of Ekrund SC fix (quest giver now gives rewards)
    • Declare Anathema stagger changed to 3s

    The renown cap has been raised to 80!

    Over the last several weeks and months we have been really working on the game foundation and dialing in on progression.

    We are also excited to announce that we will be releasing a new PVP scenario in the very near future. We also have a hidden GEM of an addition coming that we believe everyone with really enjoy, tied directly to a Live Event!

    A version of Left wing Lost Vale is nearing completion, and should be released in the upcoming weeks. With the release of LV, Dark Promise gear will now be available to everyone.

    Our internal 3D/2D design team has also been actively working on new weapons / weapon skins to release to the game that will be coming along with other graphical updates!

    The ORVR reward system overhaul is nearing completion. Ikthaleon and his team has been furiously working to refine the reward mechanics. This includes Invader crests coming from keeps that can be exchanged for items, pots, other gear, renown, and influence.
