It has been an emotional thirty hours hasn't it? We've experienced the surprise of multiple servers, to the Slash Screen of Doom (lovingly referred to as the true end game of Bless Online), the overactive profanity filter, and lastly the way to short chat limit. All of these and more are part of the excitement and frustration of a Launch Day for any MMORPG. In fact, some of those stories have been floating around our Discord while members of the Bless Roleplay Community wait in the ever growing queue. So please join us in discord. Join in the fun and get to know your fellow roleplayer! The Discord is also the place to be to get the quickest updates regarding the roleplay community and Bless Online as we hear updates from the Emissary within our community. We look forward to meeting you there!
Now, onto the real purpose for this post.
Earlier today Lilyanthes was placed under a temporary character creation lock. Neowiz decided to lock our chosen unofficial roleplay server (along with Tanara and Murabi) to force the incoming waves of the players to the other servers to alleviate the high level of lag being experienced by the population on the three, now locked, servers. Again, I want to stress that this will be a temporary character creation lock. It may require you or your friends to be patient while the server populations even out. Once the initial push is over and the server populations wane it is planned as of now to open the servers back up. For now, we ask that you show a little patience as we wait for the lock to be lifted.
For those of you in game, we understand that the bugs and frustrations I mentioned earlier in this post are getting to you. Your voice has been heard by the Community and our Emissary to the Neowiz Development team. Mint has passed along the feedback, but we also ask that you do your part as well. It is important that you make your voice heard alongside ours as we work together to craft this game into one with maximum staying power. We, the Bless Roleplay Staff, encourage you to do both of the following:
- Respond to this thread with your support : A fellow Bless Roleplayers Community Member created this thread on the steam forums with many suggestions that would bring the roleplayer's quality of life up in Bless Online. Consolidate our voice on a single thread to raise it in the forum and I'm sure other's will begin agreeing with us as well. However, remember with forums come trolls. Please, do not give in to any bait for arguments or derailing if other commentators try to trap you.
- Utilize the Bless Online Support system to provide feedback : Early Access is meant to gather feedback from the community. Neowiz specifically stated this when they announced it. Please take the opportunity to give back and help make the game better and not just for roleplay quality of life items; report any bugs, optimization issues, or other errors you find in the game. But remember to do so calmly and collected. Neowiz will not listen to feedback that sounds like it is from someone screaming out of frustration. Remember our policy of being constructive not destructive and you should be fine!
Finally, I want to thank every single one of you for making this one of the best RPC Launch Day Experiences I have been a part of. It makes me so proud how all of you, when faced with the many frustrations that go along with a launch day, remained positive against the storm.
