Akatsuki Attack 10/23/2016
The first official attack from the Akatsuki, more types of events like these will come. Make sure to stay up-to-date for upcoming events, we will make announcements for special ones ahead of time going forward!
We had this fun little event several months ago, although we've been trying to find a Media person to make the video edit for a long time. Special thanks to @Jester. You can find his YouTube in the description of both the 2nd Chunin Exams and this video. I have made sure to edit them to include it, to give proper credit and to thank him for his hard work!
The game is just getting started, we will continue to have unique events like this one and post them on YouTube for everyone to see. These will be snapshots and contain the best parts of the event, we will try to go midway of the duration we did with the 2nd Chunin Exams making them last around 30 minutes. This is also one of our plans to make the game grow. We're getting better at creating videos and content, that is super professional and RP-oriented. I wanted to make it up to you guys for not producing the best video for the 2nd Chunin Exams, since we made a lot of mistakes and are working on making our content better.
A special thanks to everyone that participated in the event!
2nd Chunin Exams Recap 09/26/2016
We had a Chunin Exams event on the 23rd of July, quite a long time ago. Sorry it took us so long to get the recap up. We've cut it up to shorten it and basically showcase the important parts of the event. Let us know if we did anything wrong and we will improve on the next one. @HypnoMan was expected, but he didn't show up on time and had to fill in for him. There may no longer be a voice shoutcaster, we are not sure what you guys prefer. Let us know! This is also still a big work in progress and we are still improving our performances.
Our next step is to get Closed Beta out! We know people are salty about losing both Chunin Exams and feel like they were cheated, we won't make each one feel like this and are making improvements. Even though, we want it to be hard - sometimes it can be too hard. We will try to mix it up a bit and not always have the same host. The 3rd Chunin Exams will be hosted by me.
World Blessing 07/28/2016
We've decided to release the Server Blessing feature early, which allows players to buy a mass experience boost across the entire server. This will allow players to reach level 30 easier right before the 2nd Chunin Exams. This will become available shortly, later today.
World Blessing will cost $5 each and will last one entire hour. These items will be refunded when we wipe as a side note, so it is not a risk to buy it now if you are not level 30 yet! if the server gets taken down for some reason, the time will return when it comes back up! They also display you for 1 hour on all player's interface showing that it was you who helped them level.
The reason that Nin Online will never have exp boosts for individual players is because we are very against any features that are P2W. A global 1.5x experience boost will serve as a way to help out other players, more so than yourself we're sure!
Once we reach Beta our focus for the game is the journey, not reaching the max level cap. As such, the leveling experience is meant to be much much slower than it is now. We're promoting RP and progression of character more so than how high your level may be.
