    [Official Launch Update OBT]

    Hello Legend of Ares Community,

    Legend of Ares OBT is Now Live! Sign up and join us for OBT!

    We are glad to announced that we will be a having an OBT (Open Beta Testing) starting at August 4th 2016 Thursday 5pm PDT. Depending on how good the OBT runs and if there are no issue with the game during OBT then we will just extend the OBT as the official launch of the game.

    We urge the Ares community to sign up for OBT now especially those who wants to participate and help us test the new Legend of Ares client. OBT will be open to everyone who has a RedFox account sign in, if you are just signing up for an account make sure that you use a valid email address, because we are unable to change your email address at any time once it’s registered. We really appreciate all the community’s feedback about the game. We are constantly taking notes on the community suggestions and inputs about the game.

    [Update] The Plus Shop / Cash Shop will be open during OBT. All purchased items during OBT will be carried over to the official launch. There will be no refunds on purchased items during OBT because, as we mentioned before, if there are no major issues well will extend it as the official launch of the game, so all Plus Shop items purchased will be carried over to the live server.

    Thanks for all your feedback feel free to leave a comment on this thread if you have any questions about the OBT.

    If you are considering extending the OBT as the official launch, does that mean the cash shop will be available during OBT? Or how will the cash shop work?

    Thanks for the update Kratos, and can't wait to be in game!

    @[GM]Kratos - what LoA is this game based off? Is it the old iLoA netgame had which had updated Etana and WASD - or is the kLoA styled?

    You're already signed up. It's "Open", which means your redfox login will work once servers are up.

    Hi Chaoslegend,

    We are still in the process of setting up the the Plus Shop and testing once we finished we will be able to possibly implement it at OBT which may carry over to launch. We actually send you a reply on the support ticket concerning this matter feel free to reply back when you have time. We are still testing some of the interface of the game and finalizing some of the localization.

    Thanks

    Hi Emagine,

    I believe we have the Korean version of LoA that has been localized to English as we are finalizing the last part of the localization process at the moment. I also think that there are some of parts of the English version that have been re-translated by our team so it will be a mixed of two versions.

    Hello Kratos,
    I have a doubt...
    A look open the OBT game, if modifications are made or arrangements respective accounts will be started from scratch? or character information will be kept already created at the beginning of OBT ??

    Hi Electro00,

    We are trying to get everything set up for OBT like we mentioned if the are no major issues with OBT we will extend it as the official launch meaning everything will be carried over, but if there are issues that can potentially be game breaking then we might have to do a server reset before launch. The main goal with OBT is to test out the game and the servers. We do want to get the OBT to be the the official launch, but we have to also make sure that the game runs as intended.

    Thanks
    [GM]Kratos

    question for kratos - have you guys done any balance testing at all yet? do you guys have any ideas what you may be changing/adding in the future? an example being that anyone who has ever played LoA can tell you that warriors where generally always OP hitting like trucks with tempest/HB

    Did you play CLoA or KLoA? Archers are destroying knights on kloa, and they're about even on CLoA now. Certain event item rewards completely even the fight. And spearmen are better than knights when it comes to group pvp due to aoe and their buff.
