Survivors, we are less than 24 hours away from Season 5 Launch. Everything is ready on our end, all tests have been conducted, servers are prepped and ready and we cannot wait to go LIVE tomorrow at 5pm BST (London, UK).
I thought I would summarise all Season 5 changes into one post for your ease so you can make sure you're all up to date with the latest changes, as there may of been some stuff which you missed.
We are all about to experience the biggest release in MTS history, the amount of support we have received this week has been breathtaking, and we assure you we will continue to strive for excellence in everything we do to make our servers better.
As with all our launches - There will be a LIVE countdown to Servers opening on our twitch channel @ https://www.twitch.tv/mtsark @ 4pm BST (1 hour before launch) so make sure you join us and the community for a special countdown.

Massive thanks to metsfan & Hulk our two talented mod developers.
Our store has been updated and stocked with all our items available for purchase. After purchase, please make a note of your order number & follow the instructions included in your email regarding requesting its delivery.
All MTS servers which releases soon are completely free to play on. However, due to popularity our servers are consistently full at launch. Therefore, we offer Memberships & Whitelists for players wishing to support MTS and to skip all queues and wait times allowing you to join even when the server is 70/70 with faster load times alongside some other perks and bonuses. Expect to see long wait times without a server pass!
Any purchases made before release will 100% be delivered if information is correctly provided, expect slow response time on delivery if you order after the servers have launched and are full.
PLEASE UNDERSTAND ANY ORDERS PLACED AFTER 3PM BST ON LAUNCH DAY ARE AT RISK OF NOT BEING COMPLETE BEFORE SERVER LAUNCH.
Any purchases made after server launch can expect delivery times up to 24-48 hours as ticket volume will be extremely high. You have been warned and this why we encourage pre orders always. Our staff are working round the clock to catch up and are working on a priority basis.
