  1. Greetings Saviors, 23/01/2017 marks the day that the Test Server 'Kupole' will be available.
  3. ⚫ The Purpose For Test Server 'Kupole'
  4. ♦ The Test Server 'Kupole' is going to be used for testing purposes
  5. to provide a more stable service when it is exported to the official servers.
  7. ♦ This is being done to provide a change to experience newly added/ changed content first through the test server
  8. so that any issues that require fixing can be applied before the content is introduced to the official servers.
  10. Although the content deployed onto the test server will have had basic tests done beforehand, sometimes issues not found during internal testing may arise.Therefore, we will require a lot of cooperation and feedback from testsers who are on the test server.
  12. For further information, please read onwards about the test server operating guidelines.
  16. ⚫ Test Server 'Kupole' Operation Notices
  18. 1. The test server will always be running, however the servers may go down unexpectedly without prior notices and warnings.
  19. ♦ The server's primary purpose is to serve as a ground for test purposes,
  20. not to provide a stable environment that you would expect on a regular server.
  21. So, Please be aware that the server may go down for maintenance without much notice beforehand.
  23. ♦ If a maintenance is in progress,
  24. we will inform our users of the changes ASAP by posting announcements in the [Test Server] forum section.
  26. 2. The test server client can be accessed separately from the standard client.
  27. 3. The game is configured in the game environment as the official servers, but there will be changed content that is instead patched first to the test server.
  28. 4. Reports and topics relating to it are to be done through the 'Test Server' Forum section.
  29. ♦ We will be unifying the feedback windows so that you will be able to quickly check and report any issues.
  30. ♦ To prevent abuse, you will only be able to see your own posts regarding bug reports and related issues.
  31. 5. On the Test Server, auto-matching will not connect you to players who are on the official servers, only players who are on the test server will be matched together.
  35. ⚫ What makes this different than the Official Server?
  37. 1. To create a smoother testing environment, EXP Rates have been increased by 5x. The drop rate for Silver has also been doubled. ( A later change also made it so that attributes are 50% Cheaper)
  38. 2. A Test Server package will also be issued out to players on the Test Server.
