The 4 week free time peroid for Neocron 2, patch 167/168 has come to an end, to what has been considered a very successful patch, and hopefully we will see more patches in the near future.
At the beginning, of the free time, the THN sent out a email to all the users to inform users of the patch and free time. We would like to thank everyone who took the time to gives us feedback on the email, which was very positive. In the future we will send an email about any free time, however we do recognise that users will not want to receive emails. Options to control email will be added in the future to overcome this issue.
In the mean time - head over to the launcher page and re-activate! If you got any account issues send KK an email to
Reakktor really seem keen to revive Neocron 2. As well as the gametime competetion for North American players, they have now announced that as with the time following each Neocron evolution, all inactive accounts will be reactivated for 30 days between 12/12/2007 and 9/01/2008. Wish your freinds a Merry Christmas and invite them to party in the snow on Terra!
Well personally as a player of Neocron, it's been a very long month with very little news of what is happening about the F6 patch. Well today, John Doe posted some news on the patch which is being well recieved by the community.
"The additions for the content patch are nearly finished and are currently in testing. We apologize for the repeated delay, but are happy to finally be able to make this announcement.
Primary changes are obviously the new faction-relationships and -territories. We also took your wishes and the results from the PvE discussion into account."
But thats not all, Snowcrash went to reveal a few more details of the upcoming changes. Click on Read more!
In a forum post today, Nidhogg stated that "Oh, and NC Evolution 2.3 is still scheduled for an Autumn release, not too far now."
Exactly what this next evolution comprises of is unknown, considering that the balancing promised by Evolution 2.2 has not yet been acheived, the faction restructuring was specifcally stated to not be "spectacular enough to call them Neocron 2.3", by CEO Holger Nathrath and as Snowcrash has said that "As we did it with Evolution 2.2 we will ask the community about what they like to see with Evolution 2.3. This means that we will offer several suggestions taken from the community discussions and then decide on what will be included with Evolution 2.3 on base of your feedback." which is a step that appears not to have happened yet.
More on this as it develops - although most likley is that the decisionw as made that faction revamp does merit being called 2.3
Update @ 1:00 26/08/2007 - Odin has found this article where Holger mentions the existence of a Neocron 2.3 So anybody who went to the convetion fancy filling us in on what he had to say?
Various people are reporting their accounts paid for by paypal being terminated as they come up for renewal, with a message about the seller being unable to accept payment, The cause of this problem is unknown, but Nidhogg insists that it is "being looked into". However as this problem involves not only Reakktor but likley also banks, it can be expected that any resolution will have to wait until a weekday.
Today, various people were reporting probelms with items and logging in on Terra, following this morning's maintenence. As a result of this, Terra is now down while the problems are being examined. Is another rollback for Terra on the cards? (presumably if there is, it will be to this morning's backup). We should see by later today.
