    It has definitely gotten pretty quiet since the new year.

    The date is unfortunately not confirmed yet, but it looks like 3rd quarter 2018.
    The first test phase in Korea showed some aspects of the game to be in need of refinement and the developer want to have addressed all the main player concerns before going to the next testing phase. There is basically no point in testing a version with features we know will be changed. Therefore a delay compared to our first estimates is possible, but as I said in the beginning, the last word has not been spoken about it.

    Sorry for keeping you all waiting and thank you for your patience. We will announce more info about the EU/NA Beta as soon as possible.

    Thank you for the update.

    And it is good to see the developer take player feed back seriously. Although i think it is also important to not underestimate the very different cultural expectations between players in the east and the West.

    As you may have noticed in our forums there is a lot of pressure for an action combat type game play.

    I know from reading player feed back on the Korean developer forums there was a lot of unhappiness with the soft-target "target who you look at" approach, and that a lot of Korean players asked for tab targeting. Hopefully when look at changes like this Kakao will be able to represent what the western market is after in a game.

    I'm glad you guys at least came out and said something about it. I'm not surprised at all that it got pushed back though.

    I do hope that they'll be a little more lenient on the next KR beta though so that more people can help shape the game.

    Anyways, thanks for the news since it's the first we've heard on anything in a month and a half

    I just want the NA/EU market to be included in actual testing. I think games like BDO and PUBG should have shown bluehole and kakao that we are a major revenue source and we should be treated as such.

    I am fairy certain that the western audience wouldnt like a tab target game.

    That's pretty false. There is still a huge audience for tab target games.

    Would be nice to be able to test things to see if we like it.

    I agree with both of these. People who are unhappy are just generally louder than those who are not.

    Regardless, many thanks on the update CM Praballo!

    The next public test (worldwide) will be the NA/EU Beta. So yes, your voice will have impact, because it is basically the first player feedback that will address changes implemented after the very first Korean Beta. This also shows that the devs value the opinion of NA/EU players and want to be sure to get it right for our territory.

    That is awesome news! I hope I get to be part of it! That brings another question to mind, will there be an NDA for those participating in that testing phase? I hope not because I'm sure myself and a lot of other youtubers want to make videos to promote the game!
