    Hey guys,

    Kris here again with the March 2015 Planet Cyrene VU Preview!

    I'd like to start by congratulating all the players that have helped contribute to our Dynamic Upgrades that add perks for playing and being in your favorite Cyrene areas. For this VU we've got 3 areas that have upgraded to level 1:

    Great Plains: New Mang Chang and Rhino Beetle Maturities
    Mer Beach: Additional Merfolken Gladiator Maturities
    Turrelion Desert: Additional Living Vortex Maturities

    Here are a few examples:
    New Mob Scans.JPG

    There are many areas that are not far behind either, Robo Base Z.R.Q. at 85% and Zyn Forest at 90%, well done everyone! (You can view the latest Map here: >>LINK<<)

    We also have the start of the new A.R.C. Faction Rank 2 Missions, as well as changes to the Rank 1 Missions:

    New A.R.C. Rank 2 Missions:

    Five new Crafting Cyrene items or Mining Missions for Cyrene Specific Ores and Enmatters that are only open to players who have over 200 A.R.C. Faction Badges.

    Also coming with the Mini Patch will be a new Summoning Mob location near Eve's Playground that will allow players to summon and kill special mobs to earn more A.R.C. Faction Badges (provided that you are already at or over 200 A.R.C Faction Badges).

    New Areas.jpg

    Changes to A.R.C. Rank 1 Missions:

    The A.R.C. Rank 1 Daily missions ended up leaving out newer players to hunt and get in on the faction action, so we made some changes and added 1 new mission: a 500 Sweat Turn-in mission for 1 badge.

    The following two daily missions will be changed as follows:
    A.R.C. Faction Mission - Stage 1 - Daily - Hunter Zyn'Dos is now Swamp Lurker Prime
    A.R.C. Faction Mission - Stage 1 - Daily - Merfolken Raiders is now Scout Bot Collector XT

    This should ensure that new players will be able to start earning faction badges as well.

    Changes to the A.R.C. Rank 1 Rewards:

    The A.R.C. Initiate Armor is now called Stolen Imperium Armor, this armor was meant to be part of the Imperium Faction but due to some issues this armor was put out incorrectly.I would like to stress that this armor will not be changed for any player that already has this armor, however, this armor will not be available at the Rank 1 Stage of A.R.C. once the VU goes live.

    In its place will be A.R.C. Inaugurates Armor, a Tradeable and Limited Armor, available for players who are at Rank 1 A.R.C. Faction:

    A.R.C. Inagurates.JPG

    For Players who are past A.R.C. Rank 1 and closer to Rank 2 (500 A.R.C. Faction Badges), is the A.R.C. Patrol Armor, a Tradeable and Limited Armor, available for Rank 2 A.R.C. Faction:

    A.R.C. Patrol.JPG

    Also all players that reach Rank 2 will get a special Blueprint from Zorra Winters to craft an A.R.C. Lancer:

    A.R.C.jpg

    There are also approximately 80 new weapons that have been placed on all Cyrene creatures level 1 through 31, BLP Pistol / Rifle, Laser Pistol / Rifle, Short and Long Blades, here are some examples:

    New Item Examples.JPG

    We've also been working to improve the Day/Night lighting as well as the water transparency for this VU. We'll be working to make these as good as possible.

    Night_Day_Water.jpg

    There are many other changes coming this VU as well as for the Mini Patch here is a short list:

    - Improved summoning for Lazidol and the Empis Wasp Queen (Mini Patch)
    - SweetStuff and Force Nexus added to Mining Spawns (VU)
    - A n00b Mini Chain to create a Refurbished S.I. Heart (Mini Patch)
    - Hit box fixes for Dragon Monkeys and Tide Claws (VU)
    - Capsule fixes for Mang Chang, Rhino Beetles, and Paneleons (VU)
    - A Mini Sweat Camp with dedicated mob spawns of Jellyworms, Mang Changs, and Paneleons. (VU)
    - Topography Changes to many of the high mountains at Mer Beach, Ngu Volcano, and Robot Base Z.R.Q. (Mini Patch)
    - Fixes to many typographical and grammatical changes. (VU)
    - Various bug fixes. (VU)

    I hope that this gets players excited for the next Planet Cyrene Update.

    Cheers,
    Kris

    kris, fatal mistake to make the armor limited

    please return this or cyrene will be hated forever

    i will not set foot anymore to cyrene for sure

    this is really hard slap in the face for all of us who didnt reach 200 yet.

    hard enough to abandon cyrene forever.

    please correct this



    edit: i thought about this but i couldnt imagine that cyrene would suicide itself like this, i guess i was wrong. You better never had started with the unlimited armor now, 90% of cyrene is here for the armor

    maybe a suggestion to try to make the unl armor available under same conditions as before to people that already started with badges. that would solve the rage.

    Hey sostoned,

    We have in the works for a Rank 3 A.R.C. Faction armor, better stats than the Stolen Imperium Armor, also Non-Tradable, at the next of the faction Tier, but not for rank 1. It should feel special and accomplished and not at the basic level of the faction.

    We are aware that this change can be disappointing to players that are close to 200 Badges but not yet there, the Rank 3 Armor should be something that is worth waiting for. The Stolen Imperium Armor was left in as a proof of appreciation to our loyal active players.

    Cheers,
    Kris

    Hello,
    This isn't really very appealing for people that are brought to try out cyrene and put a lot of time and effort rushing this missions and now "stuck" on the daily because most spawns are bugged to make it faster
    I know few people on the same range as I am (80-130 Badges) that now won't finish the armor.
    Making such thing might gut a lot of players, and giving this info already might make a lot of players just stop even trying cyrene.

    Isn't there a way to give those people a way to finish this mission?

    Is there any word on the Cyrene specific Discipleship Armor and awards? My disciple is still holding off on graduating in hopes of getting It.

    Thanks again, Keep up the great work.

    Wow this pisses me off. Been doing all the rank 1 missions and grinding dailys up to 141 badges. For what? A Limited armor?

    I really hope the update gets postponed so i can finish, otherwise i dont think i will set foot on cyrene again.

    Hey guys,

    We can definitely look into it and see what is and isn't possible, it's not totally out of the question.

    I also hope that there will be no other changes to any of the faction rewards in the future (except an easier way to get the UL weapons from the vendor).

    Cheers,
    Kris

    I for one I will leave this planet and never return for sure! this was a dead planet and will die again! this shows again how much you don't give a crap about the players! you just want to cash in! you change the rules whenever you want just for profit! correct thing was to let all who start the chain to finish it! not some distant future reward that you will change again if it seems it bring u more profit!

    So as it is, if you may add,
    There will be no way after that post to get the Initiate's armor for those that are working there and are on the gap I told?
    If there is a chance I believe people wont be as bottered, by the oposite, they will push harder.
    If not, it'll kill a lot of effort from a lot of players killing daily some "crap" mobs and doing hunts over their confort zone just to bring those tokens.

    Hey Manique,

    There could be a number of ways, just as an example there could be an event for highest single loot (3 categories, each on every daily mob from A.R.C. Faction missions) but the number of A.R.C. Faction Badges you have is added to your score, up to a cap of 150, with the item set as a reward.

    It's something that we'll have to workout with MindArk all the details, but again I would say it's not totally out of the question for that armor to get out somehow in the future.

    Cheers,
    Kris

    So when we get near stage 3 also, there will be some update removing the availability for some players?
    You should consider such change imo because this isnt some mission you missed like the Agility bugged ones in other planets.
    This is a lot of days and work put into mobs most are unconfortable hunting and some hunted each day on purpose to walk closer to the 200 Badges asap.
    Making this change, people will feel all their work thrown in the bin,
    Do you think people would put up with gathering tokens for Stage 3 (which sounds to be even a huger effort) After being taken away the chance to get a nice collectable?
    As for myself if this change is to stay, I won't botter with daily no more even tho I'm not that far,
    No point to try to push it each day If i cant get there

    It sounds like a "fun" event, but again, only few would get it, some people just dont hit the big multipliers in mobs and some keep on hitting the.
    For the past few years i hardly crossed the 300 ped mark, and some people can push past the 500 even on Paneleons.

    Just give people some assurance or clearance, because the "totally not out of the question" won't do it for many, people are quite upset on #cyrene chat about it. At least the small comunity that there is at this moment.

    Boy this is creating a shit storm about the armor. The chat is on fire. I'm not an armor fanatic and it doesn't really bother me that muchbut how can you entice all these people to cyrene to get the ul armor, have them spend their ped, a lot of it, and then just stop before those people have a chance to finish? I'm sure you can reason it Chris but i'm afraid the repercussions are going to set cyrene back not move it forward. Let the people who started finish. Shut it off for newcomers. Pretty simple solution.

    simple make it that all who have atleast 100 badges to can buy the armor before VU! not an event where you make us to spend more money for a chance that we may get it..we hunted all the crap mobs, work to all those bugged missions, hunt way over our levl to what? so you come now and say suckers all was in wain..we want more money and effort from you! not our fault that you make the armor better that it should! this is false advertising!
