Hello Xsyon Citizens!

This coming Saturday we will be running our first exclusive PvP event this year: Capture the Flag Fortress.

The event will commence at 11:00 AM PST, Saturday April 23 on the War Server. Please arrive early if you wish to participate in the battles.

As with my last update I don't have much new to report. I'm continuing to work parallel on various major improvements.

- Creature and combat revisions. I've been testing performance with the revised code extensively and am nearly ready for public testing. I've also been checking out various games recommended in the Combat Feedback threads.
It's been years since I actually got to play some games in depth and it's time consuming!

- Major code streamlining. This is a major task involving optimizing the entire body of the code. Presently I'm 1/3 through the code, focusing on client side optimizations that should add up and improve frame rate and overall performance.

- Bug fixes.

I'm going to set up some optimization tests this coming week on the Test Server and will start a feedback thread once the test build is patched out.
