  1. Anyone have an eta of the date when the dragon tombs come out?
  2. Nobody knows..

  3. We're kinda on valve time, so it could range from this week to three years...
  4. I hate to be vague, but the ETA. is when it's done. :) A couple of things have been/are in the way of progress though:
    1. Aikar had to fix performance which is pretty much complete (entity update) so that when DT's are complete our servers can handle a large influx of players
    2. Code improvement - just generally making EMC code cleaner and easier to work with for the long-term
    3. Groups (group private messages) - so completing DT's are easier in groups of people
    4. Wastelands update has to be out there so that new players aren't greeted with disgusting mining land as soon as they join.
    5. New tutorial is actually incredibly important to have before DT's are released. We lose a LOT of players due to the current tutorial being tedious
    6. When Aikar finishes Dragon Tombs, they'll have to be heavily tested for a few weeks before they're released so exploits are minimal and hopefully null.
    You can keep up to date with this stuff in the Empire News forums. You didn't ask for an essay on it but sorry, you got one. :p
