Hallo Rappies and Pioneer Halloween Activated

The Halloween Rappies and SEGA Event Quest are now available until 07/11/2016 (7th November).

The lobby will now have spoopy decorations and play incredibly spoopy music, Hallo Rappies will spawn in Episode 2's Temple and drop Jack-O-Lanterns which contains event mag cells, and you may find the event quest under Episode 2 Multiplayer > Event.

We should have a small extra for the Halloween Event in about a week, stay tuned! We hope you enjoy SEGA's Halloween extras for now.

Maintenance part 2

The server will be going offline at 16:00 UTC (in about 90 minutes from this post) to distribute the proper Christmas Present reward.

Also, the current Hunter's Boost Road has changed, already, to the Phantasmal World series.

Thank you and apologies for the inconvenience.

Mistake with Christmas Present

Accidentally gave out the cell Christmas Present instead of the event Christmas Present. I'll correct it in a maintenance tomorrow morning. Feel free to keep the cell present. :)

Thank you.

Summer Event Ending October 1st

Thanks to everybody who participated in the Summer Event! Although we've extended the event one week until October 1st, thanks to your efforts, the kill counter will no longer increase.

Reward items will be distributed to players during maintenance on October 1st. This will give everyone time to make sure their common banks have enough inventory space to receive items. If your common bank does not have enough room for an item, you will not receive it and the GMs will not be able to assist you. SO BE SURE TO MAKE ENOUGH ROOM IN YOUR COMMON BANK TO RECEIVE ALL REWARDS BEFORE OCTOBER 1ST.

Rewards to be distributed into the common bank are as follows:

- Item Ticket x 1
- Elenor Mag Cell x 1
- LOGiN x 1
- 30 Event Eggs (provided you have at least 8,000 event kills on your account)
- Ultimate Christmas Present (provided you have at least 15,000 event kills on your account)
- Summer Gold Badge x 2 (provided you have at least 12,000 event kills on your account)
- Summer Silver Badge x 10 (provided you have at least 12,000 event kills on your account)


Also, for clarification, when we say "kills on your account", we mean kills across all characters. The kills between the characters on your account will be added to get the final value. For example, for 30 Event Eggs, you need 8,000 event kills on your account. If your character in slot 1 has 5,000 kills and your character in slot 2 has 3,000 kills, your account will receive the 30 Event Eggs. (5,000 + 3,000 = 8,000)

Thanks again for participating in the event! We hope you've enjoyed it!
