As of today, Alora has officially been open to the public for 2 years! It’s been quite the roller coaster ride... with many ups, many downs, countless friendships formed, and countless unforgettable moments to remember. It has been my utmost pleasure maintaining and managing Alora, with the help of our community manager Baldy/@[member="Lowkey"] and the rest of our dedicated staff team. Most importantly, though, this has all been possible because of you guys, otherwise none of us would be here. Your support, and your love for the game and community keep us going. Everyone’s had their part in making Alora, both game and community, the wonderful place that it is today, and I’d like to give a huge thank you to all of you for choosing to spend your free time here and being a part of our vibrant community. I remember just how exciting the launch was on November 4th, 2016. I remember the joy felt by bringing everyone together simply for our love of the game, and that’s one of the foundations that Alora has been built upon - as long as that enjoyment is still felt by the community, I can speak for myself and the staff team when I say that we’ll still be here to steer this ship in the right direction. Here’s to another year, and many more to come!
Some of you have been here since the beginning, and if so, as of today you’ll be able to claim your 2 year Veteran cape from Hans to signify your dedication to our community. You’ll have to have a join date of at least 2 years ago, so, for example, if you registered December 4th, 2016, you’ll be eligible for the cape in a month. (And for those of you who were there on the first day of release, here’s some nostalgia for you ;) Jare's perspective - Day one)
Now, let’s get to the fun stuff...
In-game birthday items: Party Pete at home is giving away 2nd year Birthday balloons and a new birthday hat to celebrate this year’s birthday in style! (Hint: they’ll go perfectly with the 2 year Veteran’s cape) Birthday events: We’ve got many fun activities going on today, including a huge drop party hosted by Lowkey which you do not want to miss, as well as many events organized by @[member="King purple"] More info here: https://www.alora.io/forums/topic/41828-server-wide-drop-party-celebrating-2-years-of-alora/ Infographic: @[member="Dumbshit"] has helped me create a neat infographic to show off many different interesting statistics for those of you who are into that sort of thing, it’s at the bottom of this post. Make sure to send him a thank you if you enjoyed it :) Store sale boost: For today only, we’ve boosted the 20% sale to 30% bonus tokens, so make sure to take advantage of this while you can! Boss killtime reset: Lastly, as of today we are resetting all of our boss killtime records. Many of them were unrealistic kill times obtained during times when a certain boss or weapon was bugged, so we’d like to give everyone a chance to get on the boss killtime rankings!
