Update 1.49 - Latency Protection & Ancient Sorcerers
We're happy to present you with update 1.49!

Latency Protection
After the many occasions of laggs/kicks that's been affecting RetroCores and many other games/websites around America/Europe, we had to design a new protection system to ensure players feel safe to play even when the latency goes haywire.

This system will detect if players are having increased latency or kicks, and take actions accordingly.
There's two layers of protection, tailored for best experience in the game.
Lets face it, death should cost you, so it can't always be there to save you.

Private Protection
This protection activates when a group of players are having connection issues, and only protect those that is actively having connection issues.

Global Protection
This protection activates when a large part of the players are having issues, and at point everyone will be protected against deaths.

How does it protect you?
If you were to die while being eligible for protection, you would be kicked instead of killed, and you'd log back into the game with full health and mana in the same place there you died.
When you login, you'll be protected from creatures/damages for 10 seconds, with a countdown showing when the protection wears off.
During the protection from creatures you cannot move, the 10 seconds is to give you a moment to get ready for whatever you're facing.

If you have already "died" with protection, you'll be sent to your temple instead to avoid abuse there players try to rush hard places/quests.

Compensation
If you had bad luck and died right before the protection kicked in, you'll be compensated!
You'll shortly notice that your experience, skills, blessings and possible AOL is returned to you so it's like you never died.
However, if you drop items in that death, they're not compensated but you'd have to try to regain them either by going back or asking friends.
The compensation is only for exp, skills, bless and AOL.

Note however, this compensation is only if you're eligible for it.
If you die naturally 2 minutes before something goes haywire, you'll not be compensated.

Ancient Sorcerers
We're happy to introduce you to a very powerful creature, for the higher levels to enjoy or getting mauled by.
These fun little devils are ancient sorcerers.


Additional to them, we've added sandstone scorpions which might be fun for little lower levels to try out.

Other that than, I leave up to players to explore and figure out where they are and how to get to them.
Enjoy the hunt!


Coming updates
In a near future we'll be seeing more areas and more creatures to hunt.
Along with that we'll of course see a few new tasks as well and a few new items along the side.


Sincerely,
RetroCores Staff

Zenera will have free spells rest of the third season!
After Zenera launched, a mistake was discovered that made all spells free in Zenera.
Due to this we had to make a poll to decide what to do about the situation, as we didn't want to instantly make spells cost money to make it unfair for almost everyone.

The poll states that the community wish the spells to remain free of charge for the rest of the third season of Zenera, and so it shall.

Sincerely,
RetroCores Staff.

Third season of Zenera launching on December 9! (PVP-Enchanted)

We are happy to present you with our third seasonal world Zenera!
Launching on December 9 at 17:00 CET!

A more loose world:
Zenera is a world made to maximize your fun by balancing laziness and grinding in a mid-rate way!

Zenera is mid-rated seasonal world that will bring much joy and feelings!
A season will last as long as players are enjoying the world, minimum 5 months.
If the world is unable to "die" it can run for years.


Obtain 3 days of golden account for free!
Everyone who manages to login the first hour of Zenera will gain 3 days of golden account.
Meaning between 17:00 - 18:00 CEST on December 9.


Rates of Zenera:
Experience: 16x - 1x, Staged Experience Table.
Skills: 5x
Magic: 2x
Loot: 2x
Regen: view.

Character creations in Zenera will be opened one hour before the launch.

Golden Account Differences:
We'd like to point out and highlight for people that haven't noticed that there are some differences with golden account in this world!

  • Free accounts are able to travel with Ships/Carpets.
  • Free accounts are able to access all cities.
  • Free accounts are able to use all spells.


Central host, for the entire world!
Zenera is hosted in Miami with great systems to make everyone able to play without having to deal with laggs!
You will shortly in Zenera notice that you have quite a low ping, no matter where in the world you are!

Now imagine that, a central world, bringing many cultures into it, imagine the greatness of wars this will bring when people from the corners of the world could unite under one banner to take on people from another part of the world!


Additional differences in Zenera compared to other worlds:

  • Equipment upgraded after Rookgaard. (only if your items are worse. Leather Set, Studded shield, and 12 atk weapon)
  • All spells are free of charge this season.
  • Rings/Items give 2x more regen.


A PVP-Enchanted world:
A PVP-Enchanted world works much the same as an Open-PVP world with some small difference.
If the player you kill is at least 90% of your own level, you gain a part of the experience that the player loses in the death.
In addition to that, the amount of frags for redskull/banishment is twice as high as on an Open-PVP world.
More details here: About -PVP info.


Skill Pools:
We don't want people to feel they've wasted their time and efforts in Zenera for nothing when it comes to a season end.
So when the time comes for a new season to start, the time when Zenera will reset and go offline to prepare for the new season, all characters will be converted into skill-pools that you can view on your account panel and use on any characters within a few small restrictions.

About 30% of your efforts are saved into your skill-pools, which is decided on the day Zenera is reset.
Now mind that 30% of effort and 30% of skill is completely different things!
Obviously, experience will be easier to obtain in mid-rate thanks to that you get levels quicker, there you'd be hunting rotworms in a normal world you're probably already hunting dragons in Zenera, if you understand the point.
So keep in mind, 30% of your efforts, your energy put into the character is saved (exp, skills, magic lvl).

When you've obtained pools, it could look like this in your account-pool:
When using the pool you can choose how much to use ranging from 10 to 100% of your pool.
Note that pools cannot be used in seasonal worlds such as Zenera but only other worlds (Normal, Hardcore).


Refund of points:
We don't want people to worry about purchasing something and suddenly Zenera would be shut down.
First, Zenera would have announcements weeks beforehand that season end is near, but also there will be point refunds for recent purchases!

Shop points refunds are based on % when the purchase was made.
If you purchased anything a day before the shutdown you'd get 100% of the points back.
If you purchased something a week before, you'd get 93% of the points back.
Decreasing by 1% for everyday.
All types of purchases are refundable with exception of golden account and shop point scroll-related purchases since they're global and not only limited Zenera.


We hope you're as hyped for the launch of this sweet seasonal world, just as we in the staff are!

Sincerely,
RetroCores Staff
