Hello, Saviors. We regretfully bring you the news that due to some technical difficulties that occurred while trying to get our servers up, the launch is getting delayed a bit. It seems that the recovery process would take about 4 hours, but we will open the servers as soon as the issues get resolved. Once the server issue is fixed, we'll release the open announcement and remove this notice. Again, please accept our apologies for the unfortunate event. Thank you in advance for your patience. Sincerely, IMC Staff
Greetings, Saviors! We wanted to give you more details on the Founder's Servers and make an announcement on the current status of regional servers. [Founder's Server Details] Open : 2 a.m. EDT on the 29th of March, 2016 We have been able to get rough estimates of how many players will access the game during the Early Access period thanks to the sales data. Through our past experience, we’ve discovered what we call an optimal player-per-server ratio to allow pleasant gameplay. After looking at the data, we've decided to be more conservative than usual and lower the player-to-server ratio in order to make sure that there will be no waiting queues as we promised. We will have additional servers on standby in case there is a sudden influx of players when the servers open. An announcement will be made 30 minutes to 1 hour prior to opening those servers in such case. [Regional Servers] We are aware that many players have been requesting regional servers. However, we have come to the conclusion that we cannot create and sustain regional servers based on the data up to this point. Please take a look at the raw purchase data provided by Steam below for your reference. That being said, we will consider creating regional servers later down the line if we see enough support from those regions. Most importantly, we will be offering a 1-time Team transfer to regional servers if and when they are created. Only 1 Team transfer will be offered to each Steam account. [Sales Data from Steam] We hope that this announcement will answer some of the questions that many of you have been asking. We thank you for all of the support and enthusiasm offered by the community and hope that we will be able to work together towards mutual benefits. Sincerely, IMC Staff Link to another important announcement https://treeofsavior.com/news/?n=297
Greetings, Saviors! We would like to offer more details on what we have planned for the transition to F2P on the 28th of April, 2016. There is much more than meets the eye, so please read the notice carefully to make sure you do not miss out on anything important. [Founder’s Server : Exclusive Access - Discount Sale] The Founder’s Server : Exclusive Access products will be offered at 30% off the original price from the 21st of April until they are taken down from Steam stores on the 27th of April. The reason for this sale is to compensate for the lack of head-start that players who purchase the products late into the Exclusive Access period would have. [Transition to F2P and Additional Worlds] As we have previously announced, we are planning on creating new worlds if there is a sufficient influx of new players when the game releases to the mass public. However, we will not be creating new worlds immediately upon release. We are planning on opening them gradually in accordance to the influx of new players. We are aware that the number of players per world is extremely important to an MMORPG and do not want the population divided. Players on the Founder’s servers may feel like they are being penalized if the new worlds are immediately opened and all the new players go to those servers. We will be offering 1-time Team transfers to those who purchased Founder's Server : Exclusive Access. Only 1 Team transfer per Steam account will be allowed regardless of the number of products purchased. We will be taking requests from those who would like to make a Team transfer once new worlds open. The transfers will happen approximately 3 weeks after the new worlds are created in order to ensure that some of the head-start effects brought by older players are reduced. Thank you for your support and enthusiasm for Tree of Savior. We hope that we will be able to work together towards mutually beneficial results.

Greetings, Saviors! We would like to announce the finalized decision regarding the Founder's Server : Exclusive Access. After internal discussion, we have decided to schedule a release based on Option B which seemed to be the most popular to the majority of those of you that voted. We are currently undergoing review by Steam. Once confirmed, we will announce the Early Access and Open Beta dates separately.
Greetings, Saviors! We have been having much internal debate after seeing your feedback and would like to hear what you think about the following. First, we would like to explain why we had devised the 3 month Exclusive Access plan. The main concern we had with the Steam launch was whether we could provide a stable service upon release to a massive international audience. There are numerous factors that can cause instability, but we anticipate that one of the main causes would be a higher concentration of players than we expected. Many unprecedented problems may affect the servers and creating waiting queues to counter this would merely cause inconvenience for everyone. Furthermore, intrusion of numerous bot accounts would also bring detrimental results to the server and the community. We thought that the best way to provide a much more pleasant and stable gaming environment would be to estimate the approximate amount of players before the massive international release. This would prepare us to respond ideally as we gradually increase the player base. As such, we decided that launching different types of Founder's Pack sequentially would be the most realistic option after researching other cases in the past. However, we thought that Founder's Pack purchasers for other games were not receiving sufficient benefits from the Early Access. Thus, we decided to increase the Early Access period. This decision would also allow us to have enough time to stabilize the servers and adapt to international service before opening up to the mass public. However, we realized that we had missed some critical points after seeing the feedback on yesterday's announcement. The largest point that we missed was that the 3-month gap may cause a divide in the gaming community. We had made options to access the game at lower prices after 1 or 2 months in order to lessen such a divide but realized that it wasn't enough. The feedback gave us a chance to reconsider the initial plan of having 3 months of exclusive access as it proved to be too long for many players. We consider communities to be an integral part of MMORPGs and we consider each and every single player to be important to us regardless of whether or not they pay for the game. We would also like to offer our sincerest apologies for changing to a Founder's Server after announcing an Open Beta without sufficient explanation. We would like to find a way to make amends for announcing a news that let many players down who had been waiting for an Open Beta. Therefore, we would like to ask the users for their opinions on the following before making the final decision. We understand you may not agree with any of the options mentioned below. In that case, please tell us what you think is a more reasonable method. We are always attentively listening to your feedback. As always, we thank you for your interest, enthusiasm, and love for Tree of Savior. Please refer to the information below for details of each launch plan before proceeding to the poll. The poll will end in 24 hours at 4 a.m(EST) March 18th, 2016. Service shall start on a similar date regardless of which option is chosen. The poll can be accessed from the following link : https://forum.treeofsavior.com/t/announcement-regarding-changes-in-plans/145592/1 [ 1 Week Staggered Exclusive Access Period ] The first option is to reduce the Early Access period to 1 week.
