The Ember Sword team recently held a land sale of sorts. While thanking everyone to took part, they noted to keep an eye out for a post mortem in which they’ll dive into additional details on what happened.

In case you missed it, the team behind Ember Sword recently raised $2 million in capital from several investors ahead of their land sale late last month. That land sale didn’t include all available plots of land, but did include 40,000 such plots. These land plots were specific to the nation of Solarwood, which is the first of four nations in Ember Sword.

However, it seems not all was smooth during the land sale. In a Twit Longer post, the team explained,

“There were also some special issues, such as users who sent ETH directly to the Smart Contract, which, unfortunately, is unrecoverable. However, we are covering all these error transactions and will be refunding anyone who made this mistake during the land sale. We implore everybody to be more careful in the future. We want to assure everyone that we are working on addressing any and all issues.”

They noted they’d discuss in detail in a future post mortem,

“We will be going into detail regarding the land sale in our upcoming Post-Mortem, analyzing what happened, what worked, what didn't and where to focus our resources to improve the most and be better prepared. We will be releasing this soon, stay tuned!”

In case you’re not too familiar with Ember Sword, it’s a cross-platform player-centric Free-to-Play fantasy MMORPG. However, unlike other MMORPGs, this one is founded upon blockchain technology, specifically for cosmetic and land ownership.
