Sierra reacted to Aesteris in 3 year anniversary
First and foremost - congratulations are in order for everyone! We are breaking a record every day now as the server that's lasted the longest, and we couldn't have done it without our loyal community of Apexians. We are deeply humbled by the amount of support you guys have shown us through the years, despite some of the bad decisions made by us.
So, congratulations, and thank you to everyone that's ever set foot in this place during the past 3 years!
As this is cause for celebration, from now until January 11th the following items will be on sale:
- Switching Premium (1619 -> 1149)
- VIP vault key (449 -> 299)
- Name Change Scroll (799 -> 399)
- Gender Change (349 -> 249)
- Offline merchant (249 -> 169)

- Scroll of Lion Strength (39 -> 9)
- Scroll of teleport friend (35 -> 9)
As I'm sure everyone is aware, the holiday season is upon us, and fret not - Apex will be festive soon too, as we'll be releasing our Christmas Event tomorrow!
Prepare yourselves for some great fun and even greater rewards - everyone can join in on the fun; We promise!
Finally, I'd like to take this opportunity to talk about the future for Apex. We have a big rejuvenation planned for the server - changing some of the fundamental mechanics for obtaining gear, addressing current pain points, making it easier for newcomers to join in on the fun (w/o increasing starter gear!), more alternatives with regards to progression, and more things to do.
In preparation for this rejuvenation, we'll be performing a pretty big change on January 1 2019. We'll be reducing everyone's national points by over 90% (specific amount is TBD), and outright remove the current national point event. On top of this, we'll be resetting everyone's Monthly National Points, remove the medal merchants, and give clan funds the same treatment. After this has been performed, the national point event will no longer be ran continuously (it can be an ACTUAL event again, yay!). So, to compensate for the reduced influx of National Points, we'll also be lowering the requirements for clans to advance grades and tweak certain cape prices.
These changes will be complemented by the additional changes coming later in the first quarter of 2019, with the long anticipated PK expansion!
We wish everyone a great end of the year, and a happy 2019!
And for those who celebrate Christmas, we also wish you a Merry Christmas!

P.S. Our staff will also be enjoying the holiday season with their loved ones, and thus it may take longer to tend to your PMs / support requests
Sierra reacted to Nath in NP Increase Scroll Bug
This happens to me quite often with Weapon Enchant scroll. The scrolls icon just disappear from my 'buffs bar'.
I haven't been paying attention closely enough but I think it happens when I die to other players (not all the time). I didn't bother to report it because it was just Weapon Enchant scroll, but it sucks if this also happens with NP scrolls. Going to keep an eye on this to help you debug it.
I could recreate the issue (with Weapon Enchant scroll) it happened twice when switching instances.
1. First I had my scrolls and got summoned into Juraid Mountain, result: Weapon Enchant scroll gone.
2. Had scrolls once again and got summoned into BDW, result: Weapon Enchant scroll gone.
Sierra got a reaction from LostQueTamo in Juraid Mountain stair bug
Sadly it’s basically nothing we can do about it. It happens because the map/game is poorly done and your pc is too fast for this old game.
High framerate is a big factor, this is one of the reasons why we’ve limited the fps previously and now official is doing the same thing rather than fixing the issue.
What you can try is walking up slower, remove speedbuffs, try backing up or use ’T’ to walk slower.
This only happen in a few places, it sucks but there’s no actual fix for it.
Sierra got a reaction from Nath in SERVER LAGGGGGG LAGGGGG
Without me knowing any specifics about the server/provider all i can say is i don’t have any lag what so ever, no packet loss and the same ping everywhere. That should rule out the servers capacity and it’s probably something else along the way.
I know it sucks and we are trying to figure out why it’s worse than before for countries far away, or at least how we can make it better.
Sierra reacted to Aesteris in A new addition to the team!
It's been a while since I've done any of these, but today I'm very pleased to announce our latest addition to the team: GM Heung! (IGN: Heung)
Heung will be tasked with handling the Turkish fan base we have on Apex, assisting GM Eos where needed.
Right now, he'll start off as trial, which means we're still actively training him, so bear this in mind - his answers to your questions may be wrong (though I'm sure he'll try his hardest to minimize any incorrect answers!)
Furthermore, he'll act as a liaison between our non-Turkish speaking staff and our Turkish player base, making sure their concerns make it all the way to us and see to it that they are heard. This isn't to say he won't do anything for our English speaking player base, because he's fluent in English as well, so if you need help or have suggestions please do not hesitate to contact him.
Anyhow, without further ado, please welcome Heung!
Sierra reacted to twostars in YougotPwnedByMyAss Range+Skill Tbl
You guys know that you're claiming stuff that was fixed over a year ago right? I mean you linked to the video, you can see the date for yourselves...
He lives near the server. His ping is next to nonexistent.
You guys don't. Your ping is high.
He has the advantage there in regards to skill casts. You don't; you have to wait for the lag (yay).
You see him slightly further away because your client isn't fully caught up. There's the delay between movement updates.
That's the "range hacking" you see in the video... lag.
If TBL editing is as easy as you claim, I welcome you to go attempt it yourself (on a different character though, because I won't unban anyone caught by it).
That's right. I'm telling you to go nuts abusing range & cooldown limits if you want to.
That's how confident I am that about these claims (but mostly the server).
Closing this thread.
