[CN] Pre-Character Creation Event FAQ
I know you're all excited to create your first character. It's been so long and you're finally this close!
But first, let's see how all this is going to work out. We don't want to make any mistakes, do we?

Q: What is this event all about?
A: This event serves for you to choose your server, race, class, appearance and all that before the official opening of the server on the 28th of November.

Q: I want to participate in this event, what do I have to do?
A: For that, you have to download and install the Open Beta Client. Then, from 23rd November 12PM GMT+8 to 24th November 10PM GMT+8 you'll be able to create your character. Be careful that each server has a maximum quota and when that quota is reached servers will start to close down. That might make the event end before planned.

Q: Can we create more than one character?
A: Each account is limited to create only one character. If you are not satisfied with your creation you can delete it and then re-create it.

Q: Where can I find the client?
A: 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.

Q: What servers are open to this event, which aren't?
A: During the event you'll be able to create characters in these servers: 电信三区, 电信五区 and 网通二区. The servers 电信一区, 电信二区 and 网通一区 will not be open during this event, hence you cannot create characters in these.

Q: Is there something special I need to do to participate in this event?
A: No, as long as you have the Open Beta Client and a QQ account you're ready to go.

Q: Can I change servers during the event?
A: No, after you select a server you're bound to that server. You can however create and recreate your character there.
ATTENTION: It can not be confirmed if this will bound your account to that server even after the OBT starts. So if you want to go to one of the inaccessible servers (电信一区, 电信二区 or 网通一区), we suggest you wait till the 28th to use your main account on the desired server.

Q: Why did some servers suddenly disappeared? Will they re-open?
A: When the number of character created on that server reached it's max quota, that server will closed and be hidden. On the 28th, these servers are going to be open again and if you so desire you can create your character there then, even if you didn't during this event.

Q: is it possible to purchase in game points (for VIP and cash mall items)?
A: Yes, but you need to wait till the 28th, when servers open, to you can claim your points.

Information for CBT players:
During this event, your gameplay will not be affected.
However, if you try to join one of the new servers your client will update to the OBT client and be unable to reenter on the first three servers.
If you do not wish to participate in this event, do not enter on the 3 new servers, 电信三区, 电信五区 and 网通二区.

If you accidentally upgrade to the OBT client version, download the rollback patch and it will return you to the correct CBT client version.

China's OBT starts on 11/28

It's here, what all of you have been waiting for. It's official.
China's Open Beta Test is scheduled to start on November 28th!

The OBT client is up and can be found here. If you don't know what to choose, choose the option with a thumb up.

OBT participants will be able to download the client and on the 23rd and on the 24th of November, they'll be able to login to their account and make their first character. They will not be able to go ingame, you'll be restricted to character creation menu. You can only make one character per account. Creation of new characters are only allowed until server's population is at maximum capacity, though what does this maximum capacity refers to is rather unclear.
You can only create characters on the 3 new servers that are going to open for the OBT during this event. Creation in the others will open on the 28th.

If you're one of the first one million to download the OBT client, you will be able to win one of these achievement.

Important notions:
  • OBT client will not grant you access to the CBT.
  • CBT participants will be able to download the OBT client on the 28th. If you mistakenly upgrade before that, there will be a rollback patch in the download page.
  • If you're a CBT participant and you select one of the OBT servers your client will automatically update to the OBT client. If you login using this client you will no longer have access to the CBT.
