    Important Announcement - Launch is delayed

    You can view the page at http://www.arkadiaforum.com/content.php?274-Important-Announcement-Launch-is-delayed


    As promised, if we had any problems occur with the final build I would notify here the earliest I possibly could.

    Unfortunately I have had to make a tough decision tonight to postpone the launch of Planet Arkadia due to some technical issues that have arisen in the final patch.

    I am very determined that Arkadia will launch ready to go. Without the addition of the final patch some crucial content would have been missing if we proceeded with the launch. I do hope you understand that whilst unfortunate, it is far better that Arkadia launches properly rather than feeling rushed and underdone. :surrender: With the scale of the marketing planned for Arkadia, we simply have to make sure the planet makes a good first impression.

    The volume of content on Arkadia is immense and will be worth the wait.

    I cannot confirm when the launch has been postponed to until tomorrow, when some more tests have been run. At this point in time we are working hard to try and get it to you on Wednesday the 25th May - if we are unable to resolve the issue tomorrow, it will be delayed until Tuesday 31st May.

    If we are able to launch on Wednesday, our Blueprints will not be operational at launch, they will be delayed until Tuesday 31st May. Whilst that is disappointing, I will say that the Crafters certainly have something to look forward to as there are in excess of 300 unique Blueprints going in.

    I can also announce that Arkadia will have it's own Trade Terminal and Technician Terminal (including Arkadia Blueprint books). I can also announce that although rare, Moonshine has been tinkering with some weapons and has made UnL weapons that are available in mob loots.

    As a small token of apology, Cyrus will release the Arkadia trailer video shortly for you to see.

    I want to thank everyone who has been so supportive of Arkadia. We are very genuine in our appreciation of the community and look forward to seeing everyone at launch. Cyrus and I will be in-game on the day of launch to chat and say hi.

    Sincerely,
    David Dobson

    Tough decision for sure it was! Great you have the courage, Dave to postpone something that would just deliver 99%. Right decision for the demanding audience! Still ... can't wait :).

    Tough decision, though it seems to be best way out of this situation.

    If Arkadia Studios manages to resolve issues tomorrow, does that mean that there won't be any operational crafting system on Arcadia, or we will simply use one from other planet (or is there generic system in place, which will work on all planets)?

    Edit: Since info comes from Dave, I consider it official and post on polish discussion board. people were looking forward to traveling to Arcadia.

    First off: Noooooooooooooooooo!!! I had taken Tuesday off to be able to be there when it goes live.

    Secondly: It's better to delay and release a working product than to rush it.

    Third: Noooooooooooooooooooooooo!!! (se first)

    Don't apologize you are doing the right thing! This is where i was really wondering if you'd have the balls to pull the plug and i'm very impressed. Honestly wait for the 31st wait for you blueprints dont trust MA (sorry MA but you can't be trusted) that they will put the blueprints in LATER.

    In my opinion DO NOT LAUNCH WITHOUT BLUEPRINTS fully confirmed to be in.

    glad to hear you will have your on tt and tech.

    Tough decision but the right one.

    Let's hope we'll be on with just one day delay - and what was that about 300 unique blueprints?? Don't you guys EVER sleep?

    Now excuse me, popping on the next thread to see the trailer :D

    Would be a good idea to update the countdown clock too.

    Hi.

    I am sure you are doing hard work. Nice trailer. Perhaps i must go another Arkadia party before launch.

    Greetings.
