While farming Ancient Runes, Adorabelle (f/ele) reached Master Lv.4. As the trainers for other pioneers, Selvaria (Selva) and Lara (Brunie) reached Veteran Lv.3. Voltaire (Garcia), Magrathea (Angie), Cacofonix (Rio), Alicia (f/Infantry), Gloriana (f/Soldier), and Geryon (Trooper) also gained a few levels.
Soteira (Helena) looted Symbol of Scorpio, Symbol of Pisces, Symbol of Aries, Symbol of Virgo, Symbol of Cancer, Le Noir (sco) Recipe, and 4 gem recipes from 12 Team Arena missions. Athena (f/fig) also acquired Symbol of Sagittarius from King of Greed. Romina completed 6 solo Arsene Circus raids, and looted Chevalier Greaves and Assassin Gloves. Thelandira (f/mus) looted Elite Black Dragon Recipe from Uraeus mission, and also bought 20 Socket Fluxes to open the 2nd socket on her Elite Le Noir.
Adorabelle (f/ele) won The Wasp (rapier) from Lightning Gate, and then traded Einaptor Sword (sword) for The Diamond Dragon (rifle) with a clan mate. The Rough Stones collected this week yielded 3 HQ Bloodstones and other jewels.
The family experienced 5 disconnections this week. In addition, there were connectivity problems with the patch server and X-Trap update server for a day. Then, a lot of maps became inaccessible with "Server Closed" notice, including Reboldeaux and Coimbra on both channels. Those families with start points in either town basically cannot get into the game, if their previous locations cannot be resumed. This also hindered raids and events, like Arsene Circus (Scarlet Underground) and Faction Fight (Queen's Gate). All these problems were presumably due to Infrastructure Upgrades.
Emergency server restart managed to fix the maps in time for Colony War. It would be funny if no war happened because nobody can get into the colonies to attack. Last weekend, Phalanx clan called off the readied attack on Desolate Cliff colony as a result of a last-minute agreement. Then, there were some drama and weekday war as the terms of the agreement were not being kept (or something along those lines). Therefore, this weekend, Phalanx clan took Desolate Cliff colony, and had to fend off assaults on random colonies by Core clan for an hour after that. See Orpesia Colony War Status: Nov 13, 2010.
