Website Updates

A few changes have been made and are being worked on for this site right now:

- Screenshot page [Finished] - The site is now using KJ's screenshot program. This displays lots of NC2 screenies as well as screenies from our other SSX groups. *Group Moderators/Admins are able to upload new screenshots to the page following the guidelines found in our basement forum.

- Sigs / Avatars page [Finished] - Signatures made to advertise exiles can now be found on the site. Please feel free to use them. *If you would like to design a signature or avatar to be placed on the website, please follow the guidelines found in our basement forum.

- New manageable KOS list [In Development] - Once finished, the new KOS list will be manageable by current group moderators & admins rather than just myself.

If you're a member of exiles, please keep an eye on the basement forum for further updates.

World of Warcraft Europe Release

Blizzard Entertainment today announced that World of Warcraft will officially release in Europe on Friday, 11th February, 2005. The game will be available for Windows 98/ME/2000/XP and Macintosh in English, French and German. There will be a standard edition, containing the game on four CD-ROM disks, and a collector's edition with a plethora of included World of Warcraft memorabilia. Both versions will be fully localised into English, French and German, and will also be available with a Spanish or Italian box and manual.

With the launch less then two weeks away, the European infrastructure is in the final stages of preparation. The second phase of the Final Beta has been launched, more than doubling the number of players in the game, making World of Warcraft bigger than the current and entire European MMORPG market. In addition, just prior to launch, the existing servers will be taken offline and wiped clean, which will erase all current accounts and characters. This will help us to ensure that the game launches in the best possible conditions and also means that all players will start afresh on an even footing.

Blizzard Entertainment would like to thank all those players who are currently testing the game and would appreciate your continued support of the Final Beta up until launch!

New KK in Town

A new KK has entered the town and he would like to introduce himself to you, so I am handing over the keyboard to him.

"Hello everyone my name is Emmanuel aka: DarkFall. I am 25 and from NYC, USA. I will be filling in the position of a full time permanent coder in the Reakktor Mansion in Hannover, Germany. I am thrilled to be joining such a great and fast growing community of online gamers. I am also looking foward to get in touch with all of you for any neocron 2 testing issues in the future."

DarkFall is currently settling down here in Hannover and you will certainly have the possibility for a smalltalk in the game within the next weeks. So please step back from any directly contacting him until he is settled down.
