电信一区, 电信二区 and 网通一区closing down for newcomers
These servers have been open since the CBT and as such, are the most crowded servers.
Queues have been huge, problems have been rising and so, Tencent decided that they should temporary close the sign up of new players into those regions.

This measure was be implemented today at 19PM GMT+8.

The current Dojo official regions will remain the same, regardless.

There are some recommendation for new regions where newcomers should temporary reside.
For the Telecom region, the Dojo decided that newcomers should join the 电信九区 region and the 乾坤一掷 server.
For the Netcom region, there is yet to be word of the decided server. Here's some official suggestions:

网通二区 region: 力拔山河
网通三区 region :药草坊, 素雅主义, 江南丽人 or 傲视天下

If a final word is given on the official temporary server for the Netcom region, please, send me a PM so I can edit this news.

If you're a newcomer, please refer to this topic if you have any doubts about the game: China's Server Faq And " I Need Help " Thread.

China's B&S OBT FAQ
And with OBT just around the corner, I'm pretty sure you have some questions on how it's all going to work.

No, no need for an activation code. You can login directly to your preferred region and server using your QQ login.

3. Where can I download the OBT client?
The client can be found here, in the download page (choose the options with a thumbs up if you're in doubt). If you got any problems, check the Installation Guide (currently only in Chinese, Google translate link provided). Client version is: v1.72.4010.4.

4. I am a CBT player, do I need to redownload?
There's no need. Around 12AM GMT+8 on November 28th you'll be able to download and update your game using the launcher. In case you encounter some problems, a manual patch will be provided that will be found in the Download page.

5. Will CBT players suffer a character wipe? Is there going to be a wipe after OBT?
No wipe is going to occur to the CBT players, and the OBT characters will carry over to the retail version. There will be no wipe.

Yes, level cap is going to be raised to 45 and a new area will open for the 36 - 45 leveling range.

The Dojo servers will be located on the region 电信二区, server 斩天诀, and on the region 网通一区, server 咆哮寺院.
If necessary, more servers will be opened at a future date.

Regions and Servers. Red circles indicates Dojo servers.

8. Which region should I choose?
Choosing a region with a lot of english players is a good choice, but not always. Check the ping for each region and make your choice.

9. Is testing still occurring?
Of course, before the official release, there's still a lot of thing to test. Features, game content, localization and several bugs still need some work on them.
Having in mind the scale of this phase, the main focus is the server capacity and pressure.

10. Is there any known issues?
There's currently some know issues with the achievement system not registering all the achievement, but we're trying to fix that as soon as possible.
The game currently doesn't work with Windows 8.1. Use Windows 8, or previous, if possible.

There's still some questions to be translated. If they are, they'll be added to the topic and I'll post a notice about it. If you still have questions regarding OBT opening, be sure to post them in this topic!
