Premium Memberships & more! 11/26/22

We are very excited to announce the launch of premium! A monthly subscription service with various benefits.
In addition, we introduce a brand new currency and talk about upcoming game updates!

New currency: Gems

The main topup currency is now Gems, a complementary addition to ZP and PEN that will allow us to provide a more diverse and balanced economy.

ZP and PEN can now be earned by exchanging Gems directly. Gems follow a 1:1 ratio with ZP and can be swapped through xero.gg/exchange

With this change, the value of every topup package was significantly boosted as well! Check out the new rates at xero.gg/topup

Balancing

Balancing and bug fixing is one of our main priorities currently, with major balance updates in the works revolving around equipment and maps especially.

For now however, we decided to unvault a specific weapon we received a lot of negative feedback for vaulting, which is Sigma Blade. We had originally planned to revamp and unvault the weapon sooner but complications rose and priorities shifted. Thank you for being patient.

A few balance changes are rolling out this patch, revolving around Plasma Sword and Railgun. See below:

Plasma Sword

Dash attack (RMB)
Decreased critical damage.

Railgun

Charged attack (LMB Hold)
Decreased delay between shots by 300 ms.
Removed stagger effect on hit.

Upcoming Developer Letter

In other news, we are currently preparing a new developer letter that gives insight on current development and progress. With the next major update approaching, we feel like it's the appropriate time to clue you in on what we've been working on.

Expect news about a new client, anti-cheat, upcoming features and more!
Stay tuned!

That's it for today's update, we're looking forward to your feedback and suggestions in the future, see you on the Netsphere!
