Like the first Korean CBT, the international CBT1 will offer contents only up to rank 4 classes and there is no level cap. The aim of the international CBT1 is to ensure that the language packs translated in Github are accurate and to iron out bugs in the game.
Server Deployment Phases
Due to the resources and manpower involved in rolling out the international servers, imcGAMES have decided that for the international CBT1, the localization servers will be located in South Korea and North America.
All testers’ latency will be evaluated so that more servers can be placed in more strategic locations to reduce player’s latency in future tests.
