New GMs and Easter Event Soon!

Hey guys, we promoted 3 people to GM today;

- Harborer of Hope (MewPlushie)
- Colette (Nikki)

You can find these people in game with [COLOR=#00ffff]Cyan[/COLOR] names. They're simply there to enforce rules and answer any questions you may have. Just wanted to give them a welcome here and so everyone is aware!1!one

In other news, I've fixed the camera button issue in War of Limits 3, so it can have a button and not break now. That is now uploaded on all 3 ships.

Finally, it's almost Easter so Ephinea's Easter Event will be starting soon along with a new HBR, watch this space...

Happy hunting and we hope you enjoy playing on Ephinea!

Cloudflare data leak

If you've used the "Two-Step Verification" feature of the forum, you should probably change your password.

The Two-Step Verification went through authy.com which is one of the many sites affected by the massive Cloudflare bug which leaked sensitive information recently.

Many big name websites such as OkCupid, Uber, Fitbit, and more were also affected, so if you use those places, you may want to change your password there too.

You can read more about the Cloudflare bug here:

Google search "Cloudflare data leak" to find out even more.

Thank you to conenubi701 for the heads-up.

Valentine's Day Party Event

Maintenance has been completed, the following adjustments were made to the server for a Valentine's Day "Party" Event (lasting until 2/21/2017):

- HBR has been changed to the MU Episode 2 series (until March).

- The drop anything rate will be adjusted to the following depending on the number of players in game:

1 player: 100%
2 players: 90% (up from 82%)
3 players: 81% (up from 67%)
4 players: 73% (up from 55%)

- The rare item drop rate will be boosted by the following depending on the number of players in a game:

+0%: 1 player
+5%: 2 players
+10%: 3 players
+20%: 4 players

- In a PSO2 drop style game, the luck bonus that affects a player is the cumulative amount of standard luck bonuses between all players in the game.

Example #1: Player 1 has luck level 1 for 1% boost, player 2 has luck level 3 for 5% boost, player 3 has luck level 1 for 1% boost. The final rare drop rate boost applied to all players is 7%.

Example #2: Player 1 has luck level 3 for 5% boost, player 2 has luck level 2 for 3% boost, player 3 has luck level 1 for 1% boost. The final rare drop rate boost applied to all players is 9%.

- The St. Valentine's Day quest has been activated for Episode 1 single player mode.
