Granado Espada (Russia) has updated to v8.5.2 on Aug 22, 2012, finally catching up with Sword 2. This makes Russian and American servers tie with the lowest game version. Meanwhile, the last update for Sword 2 was more than 8 months ago (see Sword 2 v8.5.2 Update), and there is still no news on when the next update will be or what is the status of the contract issue... Will G1 be competent enough to update Sword 2 before the Russians update to v9.5?
See На сервер установлена версия 8.5.2! for the official update notice. See below for featured videos on Black Death Wraith and Clock Tower 13F.
