    The Publish 9 is now complete.

    No more update until the Publish 10 patch is released. As you already know we will switch now from the unstable branch to the stable one to avoid any problem with unstable update.
    It means we're now sync with the Basilik server.

    Publish 10 will concern FRS / AI / COA Part 3 / Events peark /Bestine Elections / More Quests / ...

    The double XP rate will stay enabled until the end of August, the BF might stay a bit longer.
