Hello Community Members of Near-Reality,
I would like to welcome back Jbaikie as our new Manager, Stefan has been very busy in-real life, and it's time to part ways (sadly) and I hope you all welcome Jb back, he is a close friend and has done a wonderful job in the past. We will of course miss Stefan, but we need to move forward and take Near-Reality back to the top.
This has been long overdue, for the past weeks the developers and I have been working on a load of fixes, new content, and we even hired another content developer. We have finished and tested the new Combat System, Trading Post, Gambling, and fixed most of the current bugs that are in the game. We have a few bugs on the forums, e.g. polls being broken and so forth. We are in a good place right now with moving forward. With our new content developer we will be able to manage fixing bugs and working on content simultaneously. We are moving forward with the most momentum we've had in quite some time.
We have decided on re-launching Near-Reality, we will be shutting down for a period of 1-3 weeks, I will put the timer on the site (I know, it probably won't be true etc etc. but we have done this differently, we have finished what is needed before we are even putting the timer up), so stayed tuned there. We will be re-launching with many YouTubers, Advertisements on every website you could think of, e-mail campaigns and so forth. And lastly, we will be resetting Normal Accounts of Near-Reality. We will be refunding Credits only. Ironmen/HCIM accounts will not be reset, they simply will not be able to switch their Ironmen accounts to a normal account for quite some time after re-launch. Along with that, XP, Achievements, and Pets will not be reset either.
I have spent the past week working on the new UN, and creating a beta team. We plan on fixing every last bug we have during this downtime and working on a fair bit of content that will further gameplay on Near-Reality. We will be going all out for this release, as it leads into the summer perfectly, note exactly last year we re-launched and had 600+ players online. We plan to do so again, and we will make this perfect. It will look more like Near-Reality ever has. Bringing clans and PKing back will be our primary focus, and it won't be very hard with the new systems we have brought in place. Hold tight for further updates, we will be posting daily Behind the Scenes from now on. We will be looking for beta/UN applicants within the next few days, so apply if you think you have what it takes!
Let's get Near-Reality back to where we were exactly a year ago, and I know I can make it happen like I have many times before.
