It has been a while since we have communicated anything to you, With the rush of the holidays and the work being pumped
into TBC we have been incredibly distracted so to speak.

So here are some juicy details relating to the upcoming TBC Release.

New Website

Our new GameMaster, MVP and Developer Tamosheik have been working on a new website to release a long with TBC.
We wanted to share a certain feature. We have our very own custom armoury. In this armoury you can view the following:
- All player gear, gems, enchants.
- All player skills and professions
- All player reputations
- Arena Ranks
- Attunements

We are very excited about this and feel it is something that the player base wants and needs for TBC.
Note: Still a Work in Progress!


Open Beta PTR

That's right we will be conducting an open Beta to try and catch the last little or big bugs we have missed.
We have been working on a very closed off Alpha situation for quite some time now,
We have discovered and fixed a lot of bugs.

We can't stress enough, We need as much of you testing during this phase as possible to
catch anything that needs catching.


We will be running this Open Beta from late februar, It will last ~2 Weeks and from there we will compile fixes,
polish scripts and the core and at last release The Burnning Crusade.

This will be the final phase prior to release, So get excited.


TBC Release Weekend

As previously mentioned, When we do perform the TBC Upgrade, we will require a 48 hour outage window,
This means the upgrade will happen on a weekend.

While it may not take 48 hours to do the upgrade we need to be sure throughout the entire process everything is done
correctly including the character migration.

Once the server is ready, we will prep it for release, we will not wait the full 48 hours if we are ready to go.

The next few weeks / months will be a busy period for us, so please respect the fact it may take a little bit of time
for us to get around to some tickets and respond in a timely fashion.

We are pouring all of our resources into getting TBC Completed ready to go and
released to you in a timely manner without any issues.
We appreciate your patience in this matter.



It is so close, Be ready, TBC Soon™
