Fiesta Game News
Hello, fellow Fiestans,
It's time once again for our weekly server maintenance! What's been going on since last time?
After lots of discussion and feedback, we are finally rolling out a big push in Archer rebalance! Given the large number of changes, we ask that all Isyans take a few weeks to test everything out and see how all the changes interact with each other in the grand scheme of things. This may even involve learning how to change your play style to best take advantage of archers' revised abilities. Rebalancing is always a delicate process that rarely comes out perfectly, but we're sure that you will agree that these are steps in the right direction! (For more details about these changes, please click HERE.)
Along with the archer revisions comes another huge addition to the Fiesta family - Web Fiesta! Once we reopen, you'll be able to play Fiesta right in your web browser. This means that you can play on any Java-enabled PC without a lengthy download and install process! On vacation and can't bring your desktop? No problem, just rev up Web Fiesta from another computer and you can play with the same characters & servers that you always have. You'll never be far away from having a fiesta in Fiesta again! (For a full FAQ, please visit the forum thread HERE.)
Additionally, this patch sees the introduction of a new event quest for Valentine's Day. Everyone will be happy to see that it offers a PERMANENT reward! What could it be... you'll just have to wait and see!
To prepare for this maintenance, the servers will be shutting down starting at 10:00pm PST, and the maintenance has an estimated completion time of 2:00am PST, for a total of 4 hours. Check the server announcements located in the Fiesta forums for updates in case the process is completed any sooner (or later).
