Summer Alpha Server End Event Times

Postby dbltnk » 30 Jul 2016, 21:26

Hey everybody,

I just want to let you know that this Summer Alpha will end on Sunday with an end event for each server. They will start at the following times:

Sirocco / Mistral: SUN 20:00 CEST (19:00 London, 21:00 Moscow)
Chinook / Pampero: MON 6 AM CEST (9 PM Pacific, Midnight Eastern)

What happens during these events?

1.) Everybody gets moved to "limited lives mode" that means that every time you die, you lose a live. Once you have lost all lives, you are out of the game for good.
2.) "Fanatic Jailors" spawn all over the world map. They are pretty strong but every kill here will grant you a ton of respect. So if you want to win the solo leaderboards make sure to get them all.
3.) "The Storm" will activate, slowly making the game world smaller and smaller. Everybody getting trapped in The Storm will die a slow, painful death. Sorry.
4.) In the end, "The Dictator" will spawn in the center of the map. This is the strongest boss mob to be found in Das Tal. Bring a group of friends if you want to defeat her (for MASSIVE respect gains) or die if you cannot get the task done in half an hour.

Enjoy!

Alex

What does the "world end" upcoming event in 3 hours ingame mean then?

It is more the beginning of the end because the actual final attack happens at 8 in the evening (prime time) after the end started.

So it being written in red and having the no access symbol is basicially just a little over the top?

(maybe next time the message should be final phase written in red with a special symbol and the actual server shutdown (seems like there isnt really one) should be shown withn the no access symbol)

Due to a mixup in timezones the US servers ended earlier than planned. EU should be find and end Sunday evening as planned.

It is over. Sorry - seems that the time zone difference got the best of me. I still do not understand why the US servers would reach the end game before the EU ones but for the next alpha we will make sure that this does not happen again.

Congratulations you just pissed off a large portion of the NA playerbase that is still actively playing this game.

You are right and I apologize for it - that one was completely my fault.
