    Greetings Prisoners!


    The time is finally upon us! After months of development and testing the "Big Update" is rolling out! If you have yet to read the post detailing the update then what are you doing reading this one! You can read the post by clicking here

    Make sure you also read this post here about the changes we made in regards to Cell Guards dropping on death! Many of you have been asking "What time is my planet getting the update!!" "How long will the update take!!" "Slayer will I be guaranteed a cell if I already had one?!?!" "Slayer how many new cells are you adding??!?"
    Voucher only cells
    Each planet will have enough cells reserved for players who previously owned a cell which means that every single player who owned a cell before the update went live will be guaranteed a cell when this update goes live. Cells that are reserved for players who previously owned a cell will show like this on the /cells menu:​

    Beta Release
    To start off we will be beta testing the addition of extra cells on each planet to make sure that the addition of so many extra cells along with the size increase does not have a detrimental effect to the servers performance. As such we will be implementing the following limitations:
    Tier 4 Cells: 556 Voucher Only Cells (All previous T5 & T4 Cell owners) + 44 Extra cells available
    Tier 3 Cells: 28 Voucher Only Cells (All previous T3 Cell Owners) + 32 extra cells available
    Tier 2 Cells: 10 Voucher Only Cells (All previous T2 Cell Owners) + 14 extra cells available
    Tier 1 Cells: 8 Voucher Only Cells (All previous T1 Cell Owners) only
    VIP Cells: 5 Voucher Only Cells (Sahara, Celestial & Sovereign) 8 Voucher Only Cells (Valron & Ulu)

    Players will still be able to see the extra cells that we intend on releasing once the Beta ends but they will not be available for purchase. Reserved Cells will look like this:

    The beta will end at some point in the future there will be a post closer to the time giving everyone plenty of time to prepare and have someone on to snag the extra cells ;)

    The extra cells releasing today will be available as soon as your planet comes back online with the update

    Because, when releasing an update this big, there is bound to be something wrong with it, whether it be something game breaking or something super small. We rather have it on a planet with a smaller population so if something does happen it's on a scale we can control and fix very easily.
