Dear players,

We've been working on improving existing systems since version 2.5, Subscription, Quest Tracking, Tutorial, Electrum Shop, etc, and new content as well.

First-run Cross-server PvP Wrap-up
First fight of the brand new Cross-server PvP came to an end on Sunday, we're glad to see players enjoying the fierce competition. The defeated Nexans have started pouncing back to retake lost ground, and there are new challengers as well. The higher the rank, the closer the epic Steam Griffon becomes. Can't wait to see the next round fired up.

Time to stand firm!

Tower of Peril really lives up to its name, waves of mobs with sick Power maliciously lurk on each layer of the Tower. All players have a chance to assemble an awesome the Steam Scorpion if they can survive as many Layers as possible or strike it rich with opening up some Chest (it's rare of course!).

What 2.6.1 Brings In?

In 2.6.1, we will overhaul the Crafting system; all functions inside it will be reworked and the new interface will be more friendly and easy to understand. Catalyst will be completely unnecessary in the new Crafting system but we are not simply removing it -all Catalysts will turn into something valuable instead. As the development and testing are not completed yet, the preview screenshots are pretty rough (but still can see the difference):

In addition, 2.6.1 will introduce a new in-game currency called Bound Electrum which replaces the old Spiremarks, which still can be viewed on the Shop interface. It looks like Electrum and can be used in exactly the same way (purchasing items from the Electrum Shop, etc), but it’s Purple and bound to your character. Anything purchased with bound electrum is, you guessed it, bound. People with remaining catalysts after the upgrade will exchange them for Bound Electrum, which is a good trade.

Always remember to keep an eye on our official website for news, updates and events. Have fun!

Back to the news of no data wipe, does that mean when the game finally reaches public release we get to keep our stuff? I know the data wipe is only currently not going to happen between this session an the next, but what about afterwards.

Sorry for the late response. As for your question, we'll wipe out all Closed Beta data when OBT comes out early next year. But we won't do any wipe after the game is officially released.

no problem, a response is a response even if it's late (even though sometimes they end in disaster)

Sweet, thanks for the support. We've wrapped up Alpha Collaborator Packs several days ago, Beta Packs will be coming out late October. But you could always help the development of this game through Paypal donations, etc. We also have a player-driven community, feel free to drop by on and join any discussions there.

Is there any chance you will make this game downloadable or the only way for playing it will be via browser? Game looks good btw.

Speaking of a standalone client,we will be considering a higher-rez client download in the future but that would require working out proper patching etc. We like where we are at now, update anything and don't need to push it, the player signs in and gets the newest assets.

Well I'm glad to hear you're at least considering it. I personally highly dislike playing games in my browser (small flash games are fine though) and avoid bigger browser games in general. I don't know about CoS as i haven't tried it (due to fact it's browser game) but some browser games used to install files (game files?) all over my PC which got me quite ****** off because i had to search for all of them to delete them when i stoped playing those games. Anyway i think you guys would get a lot more players and fans if the game had it's standalone clint as well (there are a lot of people that avoid browser games no matter how good they are).
