Today we pull the giant knife switch to turn on the new Imagination system! We need to squeeze a few chickens and rearrange some bits for imagination, so we are turning off access to the game for a bit today. Your characters will be run through our patented Imagino-matic 5000 to prepare for Imagination.
When we come back, you will almost certainly have a different level (the level curves in the new system are different). You will also be able to spend imagination (iMG) right away, but only on character upgrades (this is NOT the housing reset, so you won’t be charged for land expansion until that happens).
We do not have a hard ETA for when the servers will be back up, but we will provide updates on progress as the day progresses! We will also provide more information on the switch later in the day.
UPDATE (1:15pm PST) - We've completed the player conversion process and now we are testing the various systems affected by the change. You have probably seen some of the changes to skill learning times and your character! Even with all the moving parts, we are making good progress. In a few moments we are meeting to review our progress and determine roughly when the game will reopen to general players. I will update this post after that meeting.
UPDATE (2:15pm PST) - We are getting close! Only a few more items to tweak, one last round of internal testing, and then we will open the game again.
UPDATE (3:30pm PST) - Wow, we are on the very last task on the List of Things that *Need* to Get Done Before Opening the Game Again. So, we are doing that, double checking and we'll be back as soon as we possibly can.
