Jackal Skill Transfer Now Live

Hi Everyone,

The skill transfer from Jackal to Freedom is now live. By now you may have seen a small tick in skills that transferred over. We have increased the amount that transfers as well as allowed for fight skill to transfer too. If you encounter any bugs please post them on the forums as usual!

Happy Hunting!

Database Rollback 31/OCT/19

We’ve had to roll back the database to before the update earlier this morning. We’ve awarded 5 hours of sleep bonus as compensation. Additionally we’ve disabled Jackal skill transfers for the time being. We’ve fixed the exploit that caused the need for a rollback, however we are investigating the severe lag caused by transferring.

Patch Notes 31/OCT/19

  • Jackal change: Jackal skill transfer has been tweaked and re-enabled
  • Jackal change: Premium time and login:
    • Jackal requires premium time in order to transfer to the server.
    • If you lose premium time while on Jackal, you can pay for more time in the shop and then log in again.
    • Plan ahead to be sure you have enough premium time if you wish to continue playing on Jackal and wish to pay with in game silver.
    • If your premium happens to run out unexpectedly and you wish you pay with silver, you now will be able to log into Jackal and will have 2 minutes to pay for premium in game. If premium is not paid for within that time, you will automatically be transferred back to the server you were on prior to going to Jackal.
