So what’s going on?
The plan is that Stunlock will take over the servers late January, and that’s when you’ll get your keys sent to your e-mail, enabling you to connect your current account. We will keep you updated. If you are unsure about which e-mail you have registered with Funcom, make sure to check the bottom of this post!
Help us out!
To get us ready to take over the servers, we need some help with some testing.
On 13th of January (BLC’s 4th birthday!) we will have our first public test of our beta servers, and we’d love some help to test things out!
You can reach the test servers via the "Betas" tab in Bloodline Champions -> Properties, in your game list.
Edit: Will be available during test sessions.
The servers will be available from 15:00 UTC to 21:00 UTC on January 13th
If things go well.
To connect your account, click the connect button on the start up page. The connection key on the beta is your current Bloodline Champions account name
(Which you log in with).
Any progress, unlocks et cetera achieved on the test servers will not carry over to the Live servers. The test servers may also be reset, or otherwise manipulated or changed at any time.
Gold or Bloodcoins you spend on the beta will not be spent from your live account. When the new servers go live, you will have to re-connect your account again with the key from Funcom.
We chose to have shorter test sessions to concentrate the amount of players, instead of having them open for a longer period of time with less activity. (At least for our initial tests.)
The prices in the shop on the beta servers do not represent the planned prices for live, they are only set for test purposes.
Here are some of the planned changes for the game when the servers are transferred:
- Teams Matchmaking has been removed.
This is to ensure that the playerbase is less spread out on multiple queues
- Teams are still used for Tournaments
- Teams Matches statistics now includes Tournament matches win/loss tracking.
- Scenario Queues have been removed due to very long queue times. But are still available in Custom games.
- Custom Game Bloodcoin Gain increased from 25% to 90%
- Parties matchmaking balance has been modified to make it less exploitable for high rated users to play with low rated players.
- Fixed a bug where Thorn would gain energy by using Tree Bash projectiles.
Funcom points will of course be replaced and we’ll instead use Gold coins.
Bloodlines will be divided into 3 different price groups, no prices will be increased so don’t worry about that.
We will however remove Bloodcoin costs from cosmetic items such as bloodline and weapon skins, emotes, avatars and titles. So these items will only be available for Gold, as rewards and tournament prizes.
Some of the changes will already be done on the beta servers, some may not.
Where will you put the servers?
For our initial tests we will have game servers in Central Europe (Frankfurt) and US East (N. Virginia). The exact locations of these servers are not set in stone, they may be changed depending on the results from the tests. The initial test is mostly to test the infrastructure that has been ported to our systems.
