EE 17 Preliminary Release Notes

Bob
These are the Preliminary Release Notes for Early Enrollment v17. We deployed a Final Candidate for EE 17 to the Test Server on Wednesday, May 15. We plan to deploy EE 17 to Live during Daily Maintenance on Monday, May 20, assuming it performs well during final testing.

What Is In This Release

This release adds Free Trial Mode, allowing inactive accounts to log into the game and try out the latest build, though with some gameplay limitations (e.g. support restricted to level 6, no influence earned, no XP granted over time, can’t participate in territorial PvP games). Because trial characters aren’t granted XP over time, the initial amount of XP for new characters is now 75,000, and all characters that originally started with 1,000 XP will be automatically granted 74,000 XP to make up the difference. As always, multiple other improvements were also made to various systems in order to keep steadily improving the overall player experience.

Full Release Notes

Free Trial Mode:
  • Accounts can log in to the game whether or not they're active.
  • Free Trial Mode characters don't earn XP over time. Those set to train will show up as Training XP (Paused) on the character selection screen.
  • Free Trial Mode characters don't earn influence for their company.
  • Free Trial Mode characters are limited to Support Level 6.
  • Free Trial Mode characters don't earn points in capture/raid games, but do earn points defending against NPC invaders and defending harvesting sites.

Experience Points:
  • New characters start out with 75,000 XP, and all characters who originally started with 1,000 XP will be given 74,000 XP.
  • Training feats and learning expendables now has a confirmation stage before the XP is spent.

Miscellaneous:
  • Daily Maintenance is more aggressive about recovering from failures.
  • Edited typos in Finding Your Path, Skull-Basher Ogres and Undying Ogg.
  • Fixed some random encounters where goblins and elementals were odd couples.
  • Moved shutdown signs to proper locations on Loom, Smeltmill and Weaponmaster Structures.

I think someone forgot to update the News in the patcher to include mention of EE17.

Also XP boost does not seem to of activated.

We're running the script to grant XP shortly, after which I'll put up the blog post.

And to clarify, the patcher pulls the News from the blogs.

XP granted, you'll probably need to log out and back in to see it.
