    The downtime is expected to last between 1 hour and 3 hours.

    Update highlights:
    • Various gameplay fixes/additions (please refer to the latest Development Updates for hints).
    • HenesysPQ
    • Automated Events
      • Russian Roulette
      • Ludibrium JQ
      • Musical Chairs
    • Gachapon Revamp
    • Valentine’s Event

    Winter PQ will be closing as of 2/13/18.
    All components of the Winter Event will be removed, so please prepare accordingly!

    Several new WZ files will be made available for download during the downtime.

    This update, while originally scheduled for this week, was pushed back in order to include a Valentine’s Event, as requested by many of our users.

    Please note that the update time may change (this will be notified).
    The downtime written in this post is purely an estimate based on the contents of the update. It's subject to (unexpected) change.

    2.14.2018 WZ UPDATE:

    Map:

    Towns
    • All towns have gotten a cleanup (removing hidden and useless objects that may cause crashing and dcing) this should (hopefully) decrease the frequency of DCing in Henesys when doing astaroth (in the next patch Asta will get it's own map that is better suited for this purpose).
    Free Market
    • The Christmas FM (more a Coca cola advertisement to be honest) has been replaced by the Valentines FM from last year.

    String:
    • Added new names for the new automated event NPC.
    • Fixed a couple string mistakes (a huge pass on scrolls, items and anything else I can find will go through in a future patch).
    Effect:
    • Fixed the Love Chair (couples chair), you can now sit together with your spouse (or friend with benefits) without crashing, happy valentines!
    Npc:
    • Added new automated event npc (artwork curtesy of @Indie )
