Nilstilar[b]As the off-peak period ends in the early afternoon for players in Australia and New Zealand, and that some European players might want to use their alts as well, I was wondering : if the test goes well and the community largely wants it, would you consider in the future the possibility of extending this increased tolerance to more time zones?

I have the impression that you understand it the wrong way: the general limit is 2 accounts: In European night time (22 UT - 5 UT) four accounts are allowed. So why would it impact the multi accounts outside Europe more than in Europe? Also: reducing this the the very intention...That said, basically everything can be done with 2 accounts other than killing certain bosses - where you then need 2 or 3 actual players.

I inform you that Ryztart has reached a rather satisfactory stage (even if there are still some small things to be polished and translations that could be missing).It is now stable enough to propose it in beta version on the Ryzom website, at least the Linux and Windows versions (the Mac version has not been finalized). We will also make a post on the forum to get your feedback. In the meantime I give you here the links for the downloads:• for Linux >>> https://me.ryzom.com/ryztart_installer_x86_64.tgz • for Windows >>> https://me.ryzom.com/ryztart_installer_amd64.exe (this is only 64b version, for those who are still in 32b, be patient).It is not necessary to uninstall ryzom_installer, nor even Ryzom, but it is strongly advised to save the folders 0/ 1/ 2/ 3/... which contain your backups and which are located in : • under Windows >>> C:/Users/<USERNAME>/AppData/Roaming/Ryzom• under Linux >>> ~/.local/share/RyzomYou can find more information on the wiki.That's it for Ryztart. Any questions or comments?
We will soon update the Code of Conduct with regard to multiboxing, courtesy rules and sanctions. I will present to you what we will change.As a reminder, the current Code of Conduct is available here (click on the language flag to change it).Addition of a penalty scaleAdding (in B. Warnings and sanctions) a penalty scale for ''Major Offence'': 1 week of suspension / 1 month of suspension / 1 year of suspension (NEW) / Permanent ban.Precision in the Courtesy RulesAdding (in I.7. Bad behavior on a chat channel of the game (Game server, IRC, forums and Rocket chat included)) homophobic ones to the list of prohibited comments.[b]Modifications about Multiboxing and PvP & Multiboxing during off-peak hours[b]Three additions in III.4 Multiboxing, namely:a) Adding all PvP situations to the list of those subject to limitations: to clarify the code of conduct, we will extend the limit of 2 simultaneous accounts to all PvP, i.e. PvP on outposts, in PvP regions (i.e. including super nodes and the Nexus), and everywhere on Atys.b) Adding a new paragraph ruling multiboxing during off-peak hours: to allow US players to access the high-level game again and to give us a chance to repopulate the server during US hours, we are currently (until July 15) testing the tolerance of 4 simultaneous accounts for everything but PvP during off-peak hours, from 10pm UTC to 5am UTC (0-7am CEST), so during the hours when it is necessary for proper gameplay. As the community response and the impact on the number of US connections/subscriptions is positive, this rule will be added to the CoC in a few days, as follows.III.4.4 Multiboxing during off-peak hoursMultiboxing is tolerated for up to four simultaneous accounts for all activities except PvP during the hours when it is a gameplay necessity due to low game server traffic (22h-10h UTC, i.e. 0h-12 CEST).c) Adding a summary of the multiboxing rules, as follows.At times when the game server is busy enough - 10:00 UTC-22:00 UTC (12:00 CEST-00:00 CEST)Multiboxing limited to 2 simultaneous accounts during: • PvP • Bosses Hunts • Marauders bosses assaults • Storyline scripted eventsMultiboxing tolerated at 4 simultaneous accounts for all other activities.At times of low game server traffic - 22:00 UTC-10:00 UTC (00:00 CEST-12:00 CEST)Multiboxing tolerated at 4 simultaneous accounts for all activities except PvP.Do you have any comments or questions?
As many people are absent in July and August, both among the players and the animators, the Storyline events as well as those of nations and factions usually proposed by the Event Team (one per week) are put on pause until September.The summer leaves room for player events, mini-bosses, kitin invasions, atmosphere events… Atys Games should be back during the whole month of August.Any questions?
We are looking for volunteers who want to help write event scripts, or wish to become actors by playing a character during the events we play.Training is provided, and entry into acting is accomplished very progressively to allow time for the recruit to bed in.Join us to benefit from this unique experience!To apply, contact Tamarea exclusively at [i]firstname.lastname@example.org[i].

Regarding new players in Silan - a huge part of why i kept playing more than a week is that at the time there were advanced players there who spent most of their time helping the noobs. I met them almost instantly. It gave me a sense that this was a community. I know many people still help the newcomers in silan, but we should remember to encourage these silan mentors for the work they do to keep people playing. Perhaps even make mentoring an official thing?
