Changes to Memberships
As you all know, and is a very debated topic on MTS particulary around beginners wipe times. Membership previously included whitelists for ALL MTS maps allowing players to bypass server cap when full. This time round we are changing it slightly so now MTS Membership only includes whitelist for 1 map of your choice. (This change will effect current membership holders). We will also be adding a new store item Whitelist which is where you can purchase additional whitelists for other maps if you desire or if you are not interested in the perks the MTS Membership offers and want soley the whitelist. PLEASE NOTE! Your Map choice cannot be altered once you have requested it via your order form.
So why are you changing this?
The reason behind the change is we are concerned for server stability come launch. We are expecting a serious volume of players at launch and if all membership holders had access to all maps when full then we fear for server crashes and performance as whitelist allows players to bypass queues and server cap can be infinite, at one point during Aberration #2s launch there were over 150+ players on the 70 slot map and you could tell. By making this change we are limiting the amount of Pay2Join making whitelists harder to come by allowing more chance for regular players to join and rewarding our generous donators at the same time.
Current VIPs you will be spoken to via #VIP-Lounge about your whitelist maps in the next few days, stay tuned.
We will evaluate these changes later down the line.
Ceasing of Tickets
All current tickets and ticket creation has been ceased until new wipe so admins can take a break.
Server Purge & Shutdown Timings
The current cluster is now entering the "purge" as of right now. Changes will be listed below for the purge which will run until Season 2 officially shuts down at the end of Sunday 1st September when servers will be shutdown and prepared for Season 3.
Purge is intended for some end of season fun with using everything you've grinded for. Purge is only there if people wish and you do not have to take part.
Structure Damage → 20x
Turret Damage → 0.5x
Tribe Limit → Infinite
Alliances → Enabled
Titan Taming → Enabled
All maps clustered together (Beginners & Main)
All rules are now revoked (Except for Meshing, Cheating)
Beginners cluster will begin 2 weeks after Season 2 launch.
Please still offer your suggestions and feedback as we are keen to listen to our community as we approach Season 3!
