so as you guys might have heard, a few days ago something really bad happened for the server. Someone had found a way to abuse our web-store and brought a lot of items in the game. This could be solved easily but unfortunately, it was done while I was on vacation and it took quite a lot of time before character files were reverted to an older date.?
With that attack to our server, our player count dropped drastically and there was a lot of unnecessary drama which led to where we are now.
I and Kersch have discussed the future of this server yesterday and we have reached a conclusion. Don't worry, the server won't go offline. We have 2 different paths we can choose from.
The 1st path is continuing Arrav as it is with regular updates etc.. This path will be hard,?because of getting new players. A lot of people already know about the drama that happened with staff and items and Arrav name might be harder to advertise.
2nd path is leaving Arrav online for now. It will have little to no advertisements and will act as "beta" for server re-release. We would re-release under the different name which would give us much better chances of succeeding. We would re-release the server in like a month and while in "beta" stage, we would mostly work on stuff like bugs, adding new content etc. Basically, everything that we need to be competitive with bigger servers. One thing to mention is your characters in re-release. You would keep all your stats and ranks, but not items. Donators would get donator points ( 1 point = 1$ donated ).
I think the second path is a much better option as we would be able to start fresh, with a much better server and much much better release. I have added a poll so you guys can choose which path you like more.
Lastly, I would like to thank everyone who kept supporting our server even after a?few bad days.
