I will be releasing a new raid shortly called The Ritual. With the release of the new raid, I introduce to you public events.

In a public event raid, everyone joins the same raid instance and participates together in order to complete the objective of the raid.

The system currently works as follows:

  • Every public event has only once instance that everyone joins.


  • The public event is reset every 30 minutes.


  • You can do another raid before/after participating successfully in a public event one within the same 30 minute tick.


  • You cannot, however, repeat the same public event within its cooldown period.


  • Damage against NPCs by multiple players is tracked so that everyone gets a (weighted, based on contribution) shot at NPC drop tables, if any.


  • Public events can be locked from being joinable by new players or by players in the raid who die past a certain point.


The last one is meant to be one measure (out of a couple that I'm still thinking about) to prevent people from joining in last second/not putting effort in. One issue that still exists, however, is that a person could join and just be inactive during. I am still working this out as every raid is different so it requires different solutions.

The Ritual (Lv. 75+) will be the first public event raid. In many ways, this also serves as a test of the multiplayer as well as a precursor to true private multiplayer raids with small parties.

I have put in a lot of time/effort to get this here over the last week/week and a half. Undoubtedly, as with any Aldo updates, there can and will be kinks. I'm continuing to work on it so that we can also have true private multiplayer raids.

I'm also working on some other exciting stuff that I'll share soon. It does not have any short-term impact yet but long-term, it will be great for the game.

Other than that,
have fun!

Looks like I'll be eating eggs for breakfast on Monday.

Sorry, had to take the raid system down due to an error issued in an update last night. I've refunded the key chips for those who got stuck in the broken war machine raid between ~6-11:50 AM. I've already fixed this but due to the nature of our code updates, it will only go in by Monday when Zorg's back at work.

If I missed someone, just PM me. I can confirm via logs.

Also, Bongo fixed the issue with the key chip purchase limit not refreshing daily in the boon ship. So it should be back to working by tomorrow.

Thanks for the patience.

Ain't no party like an aldo party when something doesn't get broke.

I will be releasing a new raid tonight! I know I've been MIA for a while - work got incredibly hectic and a lot of things happened in my personal life as well. But I have a dead simple raid sitting around that I'll release tonight. It'll atleast offer a break for all those of you tired for walking inside a hive.

The Mature forum has disappeared from the public forums list. It will (very soon) be replaced by a new Raids forum for all your raids related discussion, questions, and suggestions.

Some people had suggested it and others had suggested getting rid of the Mature forum due it being largely unused as of late, so we combined both suggestions. It should show up soon (slightly out of my control when it does ) and once it does, we'll move the raid related threads in there, get some rules/stickies up (in general, typical forum rules apply as you can read in the Main forum's rules sticky).

I've also added aberrant paints for Orphics in the WF Shop and for Void Swords to crystal exchange.

A daily quest to complete 5 raids was also added to Diego's- the reward is a 20% raid damage buff or a 20% raid defense buff (random) that will stay active for one whole hour from the time of claiming the quest.

The broken rules link in the new wasteland chat message upon entry has also been fixed. It just takes you to HCS' ToS.

Rollin's added a little confirmation Yes/No you have to click on "Sort Other Items" in your inventory.

That's all for now. I'm jetting off on vacation this Sunday and will most likely not be pushing any code for the large part of the next 3 weeks but will at some point setup a raid or two for February. Had a couple of small, quick ones in mind so let's see.

Have a good one!
