Posted by vince the 2021-07-15 19:27:51

Intrepid Studio has deployed a new patch to fix some security issues, like the gold coming from nowhere, and some bug fixes and balance changes. Sadly, that patch will come with a server reset (all progression lost), but Intrepid Studio will try to not have to reset the alpha 1, as Steven said in a message in the official Discord.

  • We've taken several steps to address the repeated DDOS probes and malicious actors in game. And while we understand there will always be unfortunate occurances of hacking/DDOS attacks on games in general for the remainder of eternity, we hope those people doing this would engage with us on these issues and help us refine Ashes into the best possible game for a genre we share love for. We'd ask those people to please not disrupt the testing with these types of attacks and instead, bring these security concerns to us directly. We are afterall, gamers, looking to create and play an MMO to make us proud :heart: - Steven
