Why is the Seneschal's Pack higher priced? | 10.15.2014, 03:50 PM

Hey folks,

I talked with our team to get an answer to the adjusted price. The first thing to keep in mind is that our pack prices can fluctuate, both up and down. Even within a specific shipment, each pack is subject to its own pricing. In this case the pricing of the early packs in the shipment were at a reduced rate. Even though the price of the Seneschalís Stronghold Pack is 300cc per pack, this is still cheaper than the standard pack pricing we had previously at 320cc per pack. I apologize for any confusion around pack pricing.

Unspecified Error following 2.10.1c - 10/15/2014 | 10.15.2014, 10:54 AM
Hi folks!

If you're getting an unspecified error following the 2.10.1c maintenance, please try the following:
  • Open the Launcher.
  • Leave the Launcher alone for ~5 minutes to ensure it has had time to update to the newest version of BitRaider (time may be shorter or longer depending on your connection speed).
  • Close and reopen the Launcher.

These steps should ensure that BitRaider updates fully and doesn't cause any further problems. Do note, however, that once BitRaider has updated the Launcher will close itself one more time in order to complete the update. Once that has occurred, you will be able to play!

Thanks,

Tait

The instructions posted here are the best option - leave the launcher up to make sure BitRaider has had time to fully download. The time will be longer or shorter depending on connection speed.

If you continue deleting the BitRaider folder, you're just going to keep getting the same errors. The "deleting the BitRaider" troubleshooting step is an out-of-date option now.

"The Launcher Is Being Updated, Please Wait" / "Failed To Update Host" infinite cycle | 10.15.2014, 09:15 AM

-EDIT- I also flushed my DNS and it did not change my situation any
So what is happening is that the Launcher is trying to initialize BitRaider before the new version has completely copied to your computer. Bring up the Launcher and let it sit for a few minutes (5 minutes would be a safe bet to make sure it fully downloads), and then close and restart the launcher.

If BitRaider has finished at that time, it will restart itself (due to the BitRaider update) and you'll be good to go!

Hey folks,

With the update to BitRaider today, previous troubleshooting steps are no longer up-to-date, and can cause the game to have to re-download entirely.

In order to resolve this, run the new LauncherRepairUtility.

We are currently not in maintenance, so once you get the Launcher sorted, you will be able to play!

This maintenance only addresses an update to BitRaider and the Launcher. The client update addresses compatibility with the new BitRaider.

Ptach says he's working on it right now, but is sorely disappointed because he went a got a top hat and a tuxedo for this and now he feels overdressed.

They will be on the website - it's not going down during this maintenance.

Malastare is 100% correct. Disciplines/3.0 will not cause any changes to which roles are available to an Advanced Classes.

That is correct. No former Skill Tree Specialization (Medicine Operative is still, in your words, a 'stealthy healer') has had their role or identity changed. The biggest change is some former specializations have had their names changed as there are no longer fully shared specs. For example, in the Live Stream on Disciplines you could see that Madness Assassin had a name change to Hatred, but it still retains its former identity.

So, the website is back up? Anybody know what changed? | 10.14.2014, 09:56 AM

We took the website down in order to give Strongholds access to Free-To-Play accounts, so there will be no visible changes.

We are taking another look at this currently. Another report came in over the weekend similar to yours.
