Shroud of the Avatar’s next-to-last newsletter before its final launch is here, and it’s chock-full of release 52 teases – that’s the patch that’ll signal the launch. The team features multiple new and redone zones, a new observatory home, and female player vendors, as well as promises framerate boosts, new crafting patterns, heraldry, new companions, and offline spawning.
In other Shroud of the Avatar news, if you happen to own the western version of the game but aren’t actually located here right now – say, you’re stationed overseas – you might have found yourself caught up in the recent account migration. It’s apparently of particular concern for military service people stationed in regions where SOTA accounts are being migrated to SOTA’s Russian publisher, as service people have been instructed not to interact with Russian internet services, so there’s been a bit of a panic on the official forums as people tried to get that sorted out.
We spoke to Portalarium’s Starr Long this afternoon on the subject; he reminded us that he can’t discuss individual account details. Instead, he asked anyone affected by the migrations to contact support individually rather than inquire on the forums.
“We have been clear with our customers that they can contact our customer support, and no one who has done so has received a run-around,” he told us. “We have, and will continue to, answer those customers that contact us at email@example.com to resolve each case individually. For the record we have been contacted by exactly one individual in the military and we are discussing the issue with them.”
