  • The Patch is not done yet and will take a lot of time to finish working on it .
  • Id's will work, but are generated randomly everytime someone authenticates .
  • Chatrooms should be accurate and working in real time .
  • This is only a test and also to give you guys a working master server while you wait for the patch to switch over completely to Neuwon , Remember this is only a 1 Man project and would take some time to be done .
  • If you didn't feel good of using it, You can Roll back to Patch while waiting for the Final Release .
  • Just as soon as Patch is done ,and making sure that everything works as expected the old WON2 Master servers will be taken down, so you better get ready from now .
