To prepare for the launch of Omega-One, there is a scheduled Town Hall meeting to discuss the plans for day 1, village layout, and much more. This meeting is scheduled for Thursday, May 11, 2017, at 8:00 PM EST. The agenda for the meeting will be shared shortly before we start. If there is something you would like to be discussed, please contact Randy on Discord. If you are unable to attend, there will be a brief summary available afterward. Please plan to attend if you plan on playing on day 1!
It’s time for the test fire! If you are planning on playing on Omega-One, I highly recommend you join the test fire starting at 8:00 PM EST, today, May 5, 2017. The test fire will run until Sunday evening. The world will be temporary so feel no rush when playing and feel free to ask questions. Randy will try to be on Discord for the first few hours to take questions and discuss everything ECO. Feel free to shoot Randy a PM on Discord if you try it out later in the weekend and have questions. Check out Discord for the IP / hostname.

I’m pleased to announce the Omega-One ECO server launch plans. As of right now, the plan is to launch on Friday, May 12th at 8:00 PM EST. Because of this being a new game for all of us, however, we will be having a “Test Fire” on a temporary world one week prior on Friday, May 5 at 8:00 PM EST. The test fire will likely last through Sunday, May 7th. The test fire will be a great opportunity to make sure you have the server added correctly, learn the controls, gauge interest in the different specializations you can spec in, and a good time to talk with others and figure out your day 1 plans. Also during the test fire, I will release the Omega-One application where you will get to tell me your planned specialization. This will allow me to make sure that critical roles will be fulfilled and possibly help guide players into profitable markets. After the test fire, the server will be shut down and world wiped to prepare for the official launch on May 12th. During the week leading up to launch, I will try to schedule a “Town Hall” meeting so we can all have a chance to discuss with one another what we want to do as a community in ECO and hopefully further discuss specializations and major game mechanics. I will try to set the town hall date and time during the test fire.
If you have not purchased ECO yet, please head on over to https://ecoauth.strangeloopgames.com/home to buy the game. It won’t be releasing to Steam until later this year and buying now does get you the game on Steam when it releases there. If you have any further questions, feel free to ask in Discord Omega-One channel or send Randy a PM on Discord. I hope to see you at the Test Fire!
