This build is being tested on experimental branch, and contains a number of fixes and changes that have been in preparation for the last two weeks. Please note that we do not expect that this build will be quickly posted to stable branch as we anticipate at least one more update will occur to Experimental prior to being pushed to stable. Only a limited number of servers will be running this version, so be aware slots may be limited. Once we have confirmed this build is functioning correctly we will announce more information about the release to stable branch.
What are experimental/stable branches?
In your steam application settings, you can choose a "beta branch". This allows you to opt in to our experimental branch to try it out.
Does my saved character get affected in experimental branch?
No. It runs on a different database, so any changes will not affect your character on stable branch.
I can't find a slot while on experimental branch!
Only a small number of servers run this branch. You will need to change your game back to the stable branch and play on a normal server
Can I join a stable branch server wil experimental branch client?
No, you would need to change your client back to stable.
When will this be in stable?
We expect stable to be updated before the end of that week (by Friday 24 January 2014).
