We encourage all feedback regarding rates including imprinting intervals and especially element harvesting, which is also 2.5x as we test new waters with these rates.

Regarding Current State of Main Cluster Servers & Server Donation changes
We would just like to touch base regarding the current state of MTS. We see everyone's opinions and voices in our community social areas and appreciate everyone's suggestions, ideas, and feedback during this time. We would like to reiterate we remain committed to Season 6 of MTS and continue to develop the cluster as the season progresses. We will be polling some midseason changes, including tribe size changes. Expected mid-august for a chance for the community to vote on some changes they would potentially like to see for Season 6. Which we still plan to see out until we reach the 3-month mark with a cluster review at 2 months.
All ideas and conversations for new metas, changes and MTS seasons are all being considered but now is not the time for those conversations involving ourselves with any official information regarding the future of our servers, even though we encourage the discussion from our users which only will benefit the server and community as a whole.
During this period, we plan to re-structure our community and the way it's supported financially. Due to this, we do not feel comfortable charging full price as previously known for our MTS Membership items. Until further notice, these items are removed from our contributor's store and will have their impending changes announced in due course.
Suggestions of the Week
Allow fobbing with non-tribemates. Server is really stale atm, and this would allow raid attempts on artifact caves to actually have a slight chance of working..
enable bloodstalker breeding day 3+, with the introduction of crystal wyverns, plus them not having saddles, they're not that op.
Both these polls passed community voting, moved to official-polls
Following our Hunger Games event, users who have won prizes for finishing either 1st or 2nd in our Maze Event. These players will be contacted at some point during the week for prize claims.
Thank you all for those who participated.
