[Complete][Updated November 20] Scheduled Game Update - November 20, 2019

[Updated 11:47 PM PST] We have completed maintenance. We have extended Cash Shop Items for 24 hours. Please make sure to restart your Nexon Launcher or Steam to make sure that you get the latest client. Thank you for your patience.


We have found an issue with creating a new character for players who have not changed their PIC in a while (i.e you get a popup when you login saying "You have not changed your PIC in a while. Would you like to now?"). If you change your PIC from the Character select screen, you will be able to create a new character. We plan to fix this issue in a Minor Patch as soon as possible.

NOTE: You do not need to reset your PIC from the website.

[Updated 10:20 PM PST] We have completed internal testing and are in the process of pushing the fixes to the live servers. Thank you for your patience.

[Updated 8:30 PM PST] We are still undergoing internal testing and will update this post as more information becomes available. Thank you for your patience.

[Updated 7:32 PM PST] We have received the files from the developers and are currently undergoing internal testing. Our current estimated time to conclude maintenance is 11:00 PM PST, though this may change. We will continue to update this post with more information as they become available. Thank you for your continued patience.

[Updated 6:30 PM PST] We are currently waiting to receive the files for the issues that have been fixed while the developers investigate on the one remaining issue. We will continue to update when we can.

[Updated 5:33 PM PST] Our developers are in the process of implementing the fixes for the issues we found during internal testing. Again, thank you for your patience.

[Updated 4:30 PM PST] We are currently troubleshooting with the developers to resolve the issues. We'll continue to update this post for more information.

[Updated 3:28 PM PST] Due to a few issues in the patch, we will be extending the maintenance until further notice. We plan to update this post with more information as it arrives. Thank you for your patience as we work to bring you the Glory: Strengthened Alliances update.

We will be performing a scheduled game update on Wednesday, November 20, 2019 at 10:00 AM PST (1:00 PM EST / 7:00 PM CET / 5:00 AM AEDT Nov 21). We anticipate the maintenance to last approximately 6 hours, concluding around 4:00 PM PST (7:00 PM EST / 1:00 AM CET Nov 21 / 11:00 AM AEDT Nov 21). Make sure to complete any daily quests before the scheduled game update begins, as it is unlikely to be complete until after the 4:00 PM PST daily reset.

Thanks for your patience!
