Thank you as always for being so communicative to the community! May I suggest that you curate questions ahead of time? To be blunt, I tuned in to learn from the developers what you guys thought about the game and plans you had, not listen to an hour of players tell you what they think the game needed. We already have that in a number of places.

If only the game wasn't losing players by the 100s.

"Free PvP and full loot, sieges and raids, complex crafting and an unforgiven no-target, physics-based combat system are just some of features that add to the testing nature of Life is Feudal."

So do you plan to change they way you're advertising this game? Because all of this except for the full loot (if it's about tombstones) is all fake info, don't get people scammed. Free PvP is nowhere to be seen, "instanced sieges" are not even implemented yet, JH sieges are pointless and too laggy and raids, well we used to be able to raid whenever we wanted back then but now thanks to carebears or "sheeps" as bobik likes to call them (when they should play in Epleland if they wanted a more "safe" gaming experience) we can only do that in 1 hour each week, well actually we could do that in that hour but it's so laggy that it's not even possible in JH...

I can only assume you are new to the whole MMO and/or early access experience. These thing will come, and they will come even faster if we support the game and stop being such whinny and entitled millenial children who fulfill the "instant gratification" stereotype.
Enjoy the damn game and stop crying that the game is dead when its been in beta for less than 2 months.

I've never said that the game is dead, i've been supporting this game and I personally played YO for a long time. But imo the game is not taking the correct path, they're advertising this game as a PvP open world sandbox but what they said in the AMA does not match that at all. Maybe you should see that video. https://www.twitch.tv/videos/215431904

I know you're probably tired by that, but I can only say that we're still working on it. We are more concentrated on more game-breaking issues, which we really want to resolve as soon as humanly possible.

Thanks for the info Arrakis. Seriously, I much rather hear "we want to fix it, but no ETA because this other thing is a higher priority" than nothing at all, as it gives an idea :)

Besides server stability (including crossing and capacity, etc.) and a few known exploits, are there a lot of other major systems that would take precedence over chat?

EU
1. Avalon will be considered a PvP server. The only ruleset changes for this server (for now) will be in the tweak of the Judgement Hour schedule. JHs will occur more often and last longer.
2. Fannland will have a vanilla ruleset and will be enabled once we see that the demand is higher than the current active server capacities. Fannland will stay inactive for now.
3. Skjultland will have a vanilla ruleset and will be available now.
NA
1. Buyan will remain a vanilla ruleset server, but the frequency and duration of Judgement Hour will be increased.
2. Telmun will have a vanilla ruleset and will be available now.


I am sorry ...

Where is Epleland server and information about it ???

so instead of fixing issues with the servers during JH we are going to have them more frequent.... so we know people have connection issues during this time but we are going to do it anyway... LOOKS GOOD TO ME....

You sir fail to understand the reason behind this change.
1- it was suggested by the players.

2- The reasoning is it will spread the load of the JH from 1 hour a week to 8 hours a week, where you dont have 1500 people trying to PVP in an hour. That causes server overload and crashes which isnt fun for anyone who actually logs in during that time.

I know thinking, difficult huh?
:no:

There wasn't invites sent out, it was posted clearly on the LIF-Discord.

Next you have ALWAYS been on the PVP server. Avalon and Buyan have always been the "PVP" servers. It isn't like there is a major change to how the game is played. If you thought you were safe before today behind your walls, you are probably STILL safe behind your walls. If you built your base correctly, and knew how to setup a defensive structure you should not have anything to worry about. Even if that is just drying rack walls on the top of some dirt mounds around your city claim.

And please use auto-correct or something... because that spelling is horrible.
Don't build what you can't defend- Rule number 1.
