Greetings, Saviors!We would like to announce the details of our weekly maintenance for July 5, 2016. Make sure to check below for the maintenance schedule and patch notes.Please note that other issues and bugs are also being worked on even if they are not mentioned below.
1. The update gap between kTOS and iTOS is quite wide now. When can we finally expect the next update? The way we develop TOS is generally an internal process, but we know players have been waiting for updates on iTOS for a long time now, so we thought we would shed some light on how we’ve been working and what we’re planning. The repositories that manage the servers, clients, graphic data, etc. for kTOS and iTOS are currently separate. That means that, originally, all the contents and the system were made for kTOS, and then transferred to iTOS. The only exceptions were updates made to target issues specific to iTOS. These updates were applied directly to iTOS, since running them through kTOS first would have delayed our response time to fix the issues. Lately, however, we’ve noticed a high demand for kTOS contents among iTOS players, and so we’ve decided to change our policy and work on merging the repositories for the two versions. So far, iTOS updates like new costumes and such were done through a partial application of contents, rather than a full-sized merging process. However, we feel that this repository merge is necessary to minimize patch gaps between both versions of TOS. As for when you can expect new updates, we’re now focusing on the merge process and the plan is to finish merging and testing during the latter half of July, after which we’ll implement the merge patch. We expect to bring all the major updates we have prepared to iTOS after this process is finished. 2. Whatever happened to the PVP system? When can we expect that? The PVP system is included in the list of major updates we want to implement after the kTOS-iTOS repository merging process is finished. This will include the Team Battle League feature, as well as GvG within servers of the same region. These contents have already been applied to kTOS and are currently being tweaked in terms of balance and bug fixing. We consider PVP contents as a very important part of the game, so we wanted to make sure the environment is as balanced as possible. This unfortunately caused some delays in bringing the PVP system over, for which we ask for your understanding. 3. Do you have any plans for a future silver-sharing feature? We’ve received constant requests and suggestions from the players about a silver-sharing feature, so we’re currently looking for ways on how we could implement this in the TOS environment. We can say that, at the moment, we’re working to develop a feature that would allow silver to be shared between characters of the same team. As of now, we don’t intend to make silver sharable between different accounts; our initial plan is to allow transferring silver through the Team Storage.

Greetings, Saviors!We would like to announce the details of our weekly maintenance for June 28th, 2016. Make sure to check below for the maintenance schedule and patch notes.Please note that other issues and bugs are also being worked on even if they are not mentioned below.
Greetings Saviors, There have been some recent incidents regarding add-on usage and we would like to use this chance to address something that may players have been asking for a long time. We have decided to cover those incidents in a separate announcement so make sure to check it for more details. [IMPORTANT] 1. We do not endorse the usage of add-ons due to the possibility of user harm and other various dangers. Any damage or inconvenience that occurs from using add-ons is the responsibility of the user. 2. While the fact that a player used an add-on by itself may not be enough to be penalized, there will be certain add-ons that will not be in-line with our service policies. Any usage of such add-ons will be penalized, so please keep a close eye on any related announcements on our official channels. 2-1) Add-ons that fall under the following categories are strictly prohibited and will be penalized to a far greater degree. i. Tampering the client files to allow abnormal activities ii. Automating certain actions within the game that violate normal gameplay mechanics iii. Deceiving or creating confusion amongst the players 3) Restrictions incurred by add-on usage When penalizing users of certain add-ons deemed inappropriate by our standards, we will announce the list of add-ons or functions. Any users using those add-ons or functions after the mentioned time-period on such announcements will be penalized. Please make sure to read the details mentioned above and keep a close eye on the official website for any announcements to which add-ons are deemed as inappropriate to make sure that you do not experience any inconveniences.
Greetings Saviors, As we are now re-defining our policy on add-ons, it is only fair for us to lift any such restrictions made on June 14th regarding first and second time offenders that used certain functions of the cxAnywhere add-on to inappropriately access repair and selling functions. However, please note that any players found using the same add-on to will be penalized. We also believe that most of those players will now be more careful when selecting add-ons in the future. However, we will be much more strict should these players should be caught using abusive add-ons again. There will be no compensation as the add-ons in question allowed inappropriate access to certain game functions. It has also come to our attention that there is a specific add-on claiming to boost the luck of players. We would like to re-emphasize that any and all percentage based in-game content, such as item drop rates, are all controlled server-side. No client side alterations will affect the actual rate of server-side calculations. We also did some in-house testing of the add-on as soon as it came to our attention and confirmed that it did not affect any actual in-game data or any critical client-side files. While we do believe that the creator of the add-on in question meant no harm, this particular add-on caused quite a bit of confusion within the community, especially since the add-on creator made a video that could mislead players into believing that the add-on could help their chances when opening cubes. Please note that such add-ons that mislead players and cause unnecessary confusion amongst the playerbase may cause the creator of the add-on be penalized as well. Sincerely, IMC Staff
Greetings, Saviors! This week on the blog we want to introduce you to a new feature we’re working on for a future update: the Monster Card Equip System. Please note that this feature is still under development and the final version may look different from what we’re showing you here, but this is what you can generally expect. What is the Monster Card Equip System? We plan on making Monster Cards obtainable through the Cubes acquired after defeating field boss monsters and instanced dungeon/mission bosses. Our goal is to create a function where these cards can be equipped by a character, just like equipment items. The Monster Cards will then have their own effects that are applied to the character when they equip the cards. Equipping Monster Cards New Monster Card slots will be added to the characters’ inventories. Each rank of your character will grant them one slot, so for instance, a Rank 5 character will have 5 Monster Card slots in their Inventory. To equip a card from your inventory, you can either right-click it or drag and drop it on the card slot. You can equip different cards and receive their diverse types of benefits at once, or you can equip multiples of the same card and focus on a single effect that you want to multiply. Can Monster Cards be Unequipped? Monster Cards can be freely equipped and unequipped. Unequipping a Monster Card, however, will cause its EXP to decrease. See the images below.
