Fiesta Game News
Hello, fellow Fiestans,
It's time once again for our weekly server maintenance! What's been going on since last time?
Fiesta's 4th Anniversary continues on as different events and sales happen everywhere you look. Both FatalLace and FiestaFan joined the festivities, hosting events and giving out even more awesome prizes. This week sees the return of Mr. Squiggle (who's that? click here
) while the GMs get ready for Halloween events coming soon!
GM LaRuru was getting ready to clean up Outspark HQ for the Halloween festivities, but then she realized that if she kept all the spiderwebs up, they would look like decorations! She put out all the welcome mats, though, including some welcome messages in-game, too! GM Lightburb took another step in making things user-friendly by tweaking notices for using HP stones.
The biggest change this week, however, comes in the form of a revision to how EXP is gained when in a party. This change is a natural and necessary evolution of how experience is distributed among players. Its intended purpose is to discourage powerleveling so that players can enjoy the full range of content that Fiesta has to offer. It allows players to truly earn their class changes and other achievements, increasing everyone's play ability and knowledge of game mechanics, maps, strategies and more. We want everyone to take pride in their achievements, whether large or small!
Finally, in a deep, dark corner of Isya, GMs Kobal, Wishbone and Velfarre sat hunched in front of piles of cloth, glitter and popsicle sticks while they tried their best to make Halloween costumes. Stay tuned to see if they had any success!
To prepare for this maintenance, the servers will be shutting down starting at 10:00PM PDT, and the maintenance has a planned completion time of 1:00AM PDT, for a total of 3 hours. Check the server announcements located in the Fiesta forums for updates in case the process is completed any sooner (or later).
