Change of plans, everybody! The open beta launch date for FW has been moved from March 23rd to March 9th. Besides the date change, everything will remain the same.

There will be a character wipe on the 9th, and then the game will be in its open beta stage at last. I'll have more specific information about any potential maintenance/downtimes related to the launching of the open beta in the near future.

One week left of the CB period. An era is coming to an end :)

    (so mad) :P

    kidding, but what the flipp man totally thought we had till the 23rd, not everyone is going to be able to test lvl 60 content now highest level by then would probably be 58 or something.

    Edit: if they still care to level. which isn't me :P

    I know we're supposed to be happy about this lol, but honestly this just shows that PWE can't be expected to keep their own launch dates in order, no matter the circumstances. XD Good lord. All the things the botched before now, and now another sudden change. Poorly handled CBT is poorly handed.

    Oh well. OBT soon. Hope you guys got everything in order this time, so we don't have any more last minute changes, or any other massive **** ups for OB.

    A decent decision and all, but your lazy **** higher ups better give us some good and clear information on all the servers RIGHT NOW crabby!


    1) Whats up with the EU servers, final official information on all this already (are they in Amsterdam, are they in USA, how many, etc.)

    2) PVP and PVE servers, one of each for each time zone? And if so, will open world pvp flag mode (like that of the PWI PVE servers) be ever implemented on the PVE severs?


    3) CBT Incentives, you guys have stretched this one long enough already, so its about time we get a final word on it.

    Ok this is bs, first you not wipe after p3 to test level 60 and now this? Nobody will hit 60 before wipe, or even if there will be some I doubt anyone will test the instance since you need a party too, not to mention you need several runs to test effectively one doesn't say anything.

    And wtf was with the more leaves then? If you plan on sending any, at least do it now or it will be too close to wipe ._.

    I agree. Learn to keep your word ! Why did you do this phase 4 at all? 1 week (is it?) was useful to you? Seems like you wasted the time of all players :) Anyway, from the little I saw, its interesting game, so dont **** people off with changing mind all the time.

    Some Questions:
    1.Will we still get cbt phase 4 incentive gifts, and how will we reddem them?
    2.Obviously there will be a wipe going into obt, but is this the LAST wipe? Or will there be any more wipes in obt?

    Quoted for truth.

    The whole point of cancelling the wipe was supposedly to actually let us test lv60 content.

    NO ONE IS GOING TO HIT 60 BEFORE THE 9TH. And if ONE person does, he wont have anyone to help him.

    PWE , honestly I would have thought that after so many other games you guys launched, you'd have learned by now that you can't keep swapping dates around, and making last minute changes every other week. It shows massive lack of organization, it shows poor faith to the community, and shows us that we cant expect anything to move forward as planned.

    But meh. PWE has made the same mistakes over and over for years, so I dunno why I expected them to do better now.

    WTFFF MAN YET AGAIN you make a MAJOR change like the no wipe after phase 3.

    I didn't no life this EXPECTING this but honestly you are **** over all the people who hardcored in this game, who wanted to check out the lv60 map and builds -- and yes I'm serious they would have tested bugs.

    I'm honestly surprised they still kept at it in phase 4 after the change with the no wipe. But seriously you give us now information about wipe with 1 week in advance, YET AGAIN?

    Watch as everyone lost motivation in even leveling up anymore -- so what about the lv60 content you wanted to "test"? hmm.

    uhm, ok, can you at least give a time frame for OB? From March9 'till ...... ?
    Really, I don't want to start a new char for 2 weeks. I had some plans with this one until the 23rd, but hey...
    Can I at least get an official timeframe to know if it's worth wasting my time in this game or not?
    Thanks.

    Open Beta is when the game goes live, i.e. there is no "end date", the only real "end date" is when the game tanks.
