We have recently finished integrating the Platform to the website so it is now running in sort of a "public beta test" mode. You might experience slowdowns or timeouts for short periods, but otherwise it is expected to be working correctly.
If you've previously selected (in your browser) to stay logged in, you'll remain logged in and can still do your regular activities until your cache expires - or you choose to log out.
Once you're logged out (either through cache expiration or logging out manually), you'll need to reset your password in order to log in again. This is also necessary to fully activate your Platform account (technical note: we don't store passwords, so we couldn't migrate that).
We have migrated all active users, so you don't have to create a new user. Your track record (ie. your posts) is also saved.
(Of course we have backed up everything and can revert should we need it, though it is expected to remain a theoretic option.)
There has been a major update in the underlying Platform API.
While it has been throughoutly tested, there is always chances that some bugs would survive the purge, so please let us know if you'd encounter abnormal or unexpected behaviour about the site or any user related process (ie. login). Thank you!
I was absent for a while. Wonder when shall game start? Only coat of arms generator I tried.
We've recently posted a Vanguard only update of the client, which is now fully online (and have a vastly updated Coat of Arms Editor and the mandatory boring stuffs about player management, communication, notification systems, etc). The point is, we've built the online ecosystem behind the game to the point we can focus on the next phase. You can check the Vanguard forums for more details.
So, subsequent updates will now focus on the world map & game logic, adding related features incrementally.
