Welcome to the first major update after the release of our new 6.0 version.
We have a few exciting things to discuss in this update, but first a few bookkeeping notes;
- Konohagakure is temporarily closed until the other villages increase in size.
- We are marking this update as the end of the bonus Character Points period that started with Patch 6.0, thanks everyone for participating!
We are increasing the value of solo-posts by 10, to 30/15.
Now on to the changes!
Firstly, we are unrestricting the number of rank slots for jounin and below, meaning that any village can have any number of these ranks. We have come to believe that people are interested in telling specific kinds of stories, and forcing them to change that because of rank limitations is not the best solution to rank-bloat. Instead, we will be looking into ways to encourage and improve the genin experience. Be on the lookout for those changes soon.
Secondly, in the same manner of vision as the change above, we are allowing the registration of Unaffiliated Characters. These characters have no allegiance to any specific village and can be missning-nin or neutral parties. They can be registered at any rank up to jounin. In terms of kekkei genkai, what is available from each village to Unaffiliated shinobi is up to each kage, so check with them for details.
Thirdly, we're making a change to how restricted picks work. We are changing how slot types work; you may now have any combination of types of any kind, with the only restriction being that you may not have three statuses.
There have also been some tweaks to some items on the list, so make sure to check any picks you may have. To facilitate these changes, characters will be allowed to exchange or repick their restricteds for any reason up until the end of the month.
Finally, we have to events upcoming this month for you to be on the lookout for. The first will be a combat-based event involving the Eight Tails. The second will be a non-combat festival based event with special rewards. These will drop later this month, but we wanted to give everyone some heads-up to conclude any current topics so they can be prepared for these events when they happen.
That about wraps things up. We hope everyone has a wonderful April. As a little parting gift, feel free to claim 50 CP.
Hail and Well Met,
