Good Morning HWS RE Community
Many wondered about a HWS RE full wipe in combination with the 1.6 Patch, planned on 21th September next week.
After a lot of thoughts I want to inform you that we do a full wipe for Patch 1.6, but with a little offset, on ~24th September. That means this season is 1 month shorter than our planned 3 months cycle (we started this RE season at 24 July).
Patch 1.6 contains not only new Factions and POIs but also new Reforged Eden content I want to have included for the upcoming 3 months. Something I can’t add during a season. The little offset is done because Vanilla stuff needs to be merged to RE (depends when R/V is done).
There are currently couple of Missions from RE 1.5 that do not work because they got added after our season start and some players are upset they do not work.
For the first time ever Eleon published a “release plan”. Patch 1.6 = 21th September and Patch 1.7 = 7th December.
While I don’t know what Patch 1.7 will contain, it makes it easier for us to plan ahead. If we don’t full wipe with 1.6 we neither got the 1.6 content in time nor the 1.7 content, since the regular full wipe after the regular next one would be the 24th January.
For HWS RE we kinda rely on those cycles cause I’m not only dependent on Eleon but also on Ravien/Vermillion, the creators of the Scenario. This unfortunately means it’s not always our 3 months cycle. The previous HWS RE season for example ran 5+ months.
As compensation I will for one start a 33% discount on coming Friday, running for 9 days and add new Supporter Packages. Second there will be a new added temporary compensation feature to allow OCD and Recycle usage globally, even with level 1.
HWS EU/NA are not affected by this. HWS+ EU/NA still needs more time.
As always hug your best friend:
