    • To facilitate the usage of the guild list in our version, it’s now possible to alphabetically sort by name in the alliance member list.
    • The “Status/Position” field has been improved to allow for more letters to be displayed, making it easier to identify the zone a member is in.

    Factions

    • As a first step to try and adjust both performance and balancing in the Faction zone, we’re changing the limit of simultaneously allowed players per faction in a channel from 150 to 100.

    Miscellaneous

    Fall Event

    The Fall event will take place between September 16th and October 7th. Details about the activities as well as the potential rewards will be revealed through separate news.
