GM Leslie's surprise FAQ! 1st~3rd (edited Jan 07 2015)

Hi, guys!

There's a new posting on the official ToS webpage and I'd like to share what it has to say.
The original URL is as follows:
http://tos.nexon.com/community/free/vie ... cleSN=1170

I tried to keep the original posting's format as much as I can.
I really like this whole Img and URL and youtube functions this forum provides...
Works LIKE.A.MAGIC!

============================================
Image
Greetings. This is Tree of Savior GM Leslie.

I will be posting frequently asked questions from users every Wednesday during the CBT period.
Today I would like to bring up three most asked questions ever since we opened the ToS webpage.

Image Everyone says that the number of CBT testers that will be chosen is going to be one thousand (1,000). Is that true?

Image
[The truth of this rumor is...]

Image The image that's been floating around the Internet says that the number of CBT testers to be 1,000.

However we have requested the number to be increased to 3,000. We are currently still waiting for rating decision from the Game Rating and Administration Committee, and therefore nothing is fixed concretely yet.
I will let you know the exact number of the testers for CBT on December 29th.

Image I've checked the Character Introduction page after the webpage has gone online, but it seems like I just can't find any info on Monk and Dievdirby.
Are all the characters (classes) that you've shown to us via developer's blog all gone?

Image Now this is one of the most frequently asked questions. On the CBT webpage, only the handful of the classes that are equal to or lower than Rank 4 (and thus playable during the CBT) are shown. Some of the classes you have mentioned and are waiting to try out are advanced classes that are Rank 5 or higher, so please wait kindly until the next CBT or OBT during which you can try out those classes.

Image
[Bear the Monks within your heart ...for now.]

Just in case some of you haven't checked it out yet... the Developer's Blog (http://blog.treeofsavior.com/?p=602)!
Check it out with the video!


Image I've played with Rank-up system on the Character Introduction webpage, but I still don't get some of the features. Would you kindly go over once again?

Image There are several rules on Rank-up in ToS.
Image
If you reach level 15 on the Class Level then you can either increase the Class Circle or choose a brand new Class.
If your class reaches 3 Circle (Third-tier Circle=i.e. Keep your class across three Ranks), you cannot choose (that Class) from the next Rank.
Therefore you can only keep your basic Class from Rank 1 until Rank 3.

Image
If you choose Class other than your basic Rank 1 Class when you reach Rank 2, you cannot choose the basic Class from that time on!

And the Classes you can choose will be your current Class and Classes that are added in the current Rank. To say, if you were a Ranger on Rank 2, then you can choose either to be Ranger again (your current Class) or Sapper / Hunter that are added in the Rank 3.

I would also like to go over the Circle system.
- Swordsman > Swordsman > Swordsman > Hoplite = Swordsman 3 Circle, Hoplite 1 Circe.
- Swordsman > Peltasta > Hoplite > Cataphract = Swordsman 1 Circle, Peltasta 1 Circle, Hoplite 1 Circle, Cataphract 1 Circle
- Swordsman > Swordsman > Hoplite > Hoplite = Swordsman 2 Circle, Hoplite 2 Circle.

Would this clarify enough?

Image Where can I get the background music? I really liked the BGM from the teaser website.

Image The BGMs are contents provided in-game and it's difficult for us to provide to users as-is. Although I would like to express our sincere gratitude on your interest about ToS, please bear with us until the official game service soon to come.

Image
It just might be helpful if you search with the keywords TOS BGM or something like that?

Then I will see you everyone and Merry Christmas!

There's currently news about Nexon's slapping the NDA on the CBT so you might want to tread careful when hosting your stream on Twitch. But regardless let me know if you need help with your streaming I don't mind helping you out.

GM Leslie's surprise FAQ! 2nd (edited Jan 07 2015)

Posted: January 7th, 2015, 6:30 am
by Bluegale
Happy new year, guys!
As of everyone else, I was super busy with work and.. all the end-of-year outings and stuff, and am still so with the new year outings :wah:

I just checked and found out GM Leslie had uploaded another FAQ (and hence "the third").
I'd like to translate and share it with you but before that let me rephrase some of the sentences Flash had kindly shared with us.

So here it goes!

====================================================================
Good evening. Greetings from GM Leslie.
Like last week, most discussed feedbacks have been gathered from 1:1 inquiry mailbox and the free bulletin board.

Image I want to be sure to get into the CBT. Can I register with multiple accounts?

Image Even if you register with multiple accounts, because you have to authenticate yourself and add personal information there is no avail. Especially since IPs from PC bang (i.e. internet cafe) can be specifically identified, if a normal household registers for CBT with ten (10) or more accounts, it would be quite strange unless that particular household is composed of at least three (3) generations of the family.
Also, if you use another person's account, even if he/she is a member of your family, you might NOT be protected by the company should a problem emerge, so please use your own account and your account only!

Image Can I broadcast the game (Africa TV [Korean version of Twitch.tv])?

Image We understand that you want to show your superior skills to you friends via live stream but due to the operating policy live broadcasting is not allowed during the 1st CBT.
These are the terms of the operational policies,

3. The rights and obligations of the tester
1) The tester will not broadcast the game content.
2) The tester will not play the game in public place (PC room (i.e. PC bang, internet cafe), library, ...)
3) The test key can not be transferred through sharing and trading with others, you can not get any protection against damage caused by violation.


This is to prevent the release of information of the CBT that should not be released. Posting screenshots on your blog is fine though. So don't worry about this one.


Image I'd like to change my hairstyle and eye color.

Image Unfortunately, you can not change your eye color in this CBT.
Image

However, you can choose a hairstyle when creating a character from the hostel (or Inn, basically serves as your headquarter).
And various accessories are prepared in the game.
Please note that more customization details might be developed later.

"I am a male, can I choose a female character?" The question is also coming in frequently.
Gender and hair style are freely selectable.
Image
[I'm kind of the male character (or I as well only play as male character) ]


Image I have not checked PC specifications.
Image Do not worry, everyone.
Image
[Click me if you haven't checked the notice about browser and PC specifications]
(The original image is hyperlinked to http://tos.nexon.com/community/free/vie ... cleSN=2234)


Image Tree of Savior does not stick well. Let me know how to easily memorize the name.
Image If you read it as TREEOFSAVIOR or TREEO FSVIOUR (I know, these are non-English speakers we are talking about), you will have difficult memorizing the name.
트리 오브 세이비어(Tree of Savior) means a tree of salvation. Surely you mean that the tree in front of me stands for a real tree? Some ask. Yes, that's correct. It's a real tree. Perhaps some people with keen eyes have already noticed the images and notions of trees here and there in the illustrations and images published by us.

Well, I hope this resolves some of your curiosities~
I see a lot of you folks have applied for the CBT already.
Watching the free bulletin board I saw many of you talking about the 200 characters aspirations (which was required in the application), and we read those carefully without missing a note. I will do my best to be ready to work hard so the CBT is done without a problem.

Today is the last day of 2014 already.
Hope everyone has chance to look back and wrap up the passing year before going to bed.
I will be back in the year of 2015! See you all next Wednesday.

Happy New Year, everyone!

GM Leslie's surprise FAQ! 3rd (edited Jan 07 2015)

Posted: January 7th, 2015, 9:14 am
by Bluegale
So now onto the third FAQ.
Flash has uploaded the third FAQ with all the essential information already, but there are some other stuff that aren't translated yet so.. here it goes!
Oh, by the way it's mainly based on Flash's translation.

==================================================
Image
Good evening.
First greetings of GM Leslie in 2015.
Did everyone have a Happy New Year?
Today I will be answering the most frequently asked questions during last week.

Image Because of the recent PC Room answer there was a lot of chaos in the forum. Could you be more specific?
Image
[Let's just put that GM Leslie explained it difficult]

Image 1. It's not that you won't be selected as a tester because you applied in PC Room.

- The content of screenshot above (which explains that you won't be protected by the company should a problem occur if you use others' accounts to apply) will be applied to normal IPs and PC Room IPs alike ONLY IF lots of accounts are used to apply. Therefore, if you just apply with your friends and/or family members then you should not be worrying.

2. Having a large family and selection process for testers are not related at all.

- After the last FAQ was updated, we have been receiving inputs like 'we have three (3) generations of family living together,' or even five (5) generations living together. Your grandfather, uncle and even your nephew who was just born couple days ago can apply IF they have authenticated themselves via 'cell-phone or I-PIN authentication.'
(South Korea has quite strict net identification policy.) Let me tell you again that using the identity of family members to apply for the beta is still a violation of the rules. I have explained this much and yet some people will try to take other players' chances by applying with multiple accounts... these are bad people.

Image Is it true that you cannot play in PC rooms?
Image Operational policies for the 1st CBT are as follows:
"3. The rights and obligations of the tester 2) The tester is not allowed to play Tree of Savior in public (PC room, library, etc.). "

Frankly, we cannot literally check every single PC Room all over Korea during the test period. However, during this 1st CBT you will be experiencing a wide variety of bugs and balance problems that we have not been able to identify beforehand, so please lock your door and play at your home if possible. If the circumstances only allow you to play outside (i.e. I don't have a PC at home, my mom thinks I'm at cram school right now... etc.), then you are allowed to do so.

Image I understand that live broadcasting is prohibited. Is uploading the videos to Youtube also banned?
Image It is not. You can share your recorded videos and images. The 'Online Broadcasting' part of the operational policies only applies to the online live streaming (broadcasting) via other routes (i.e. live streaming sites).

Image Why are you asking for the tester aspirations? I thought we were applying for a beta tester, not for a company job or something.
Image For this first test it is difficult to provide a "stable gameplay environment". Unlike what users (especially overseas fans) think, we at imc GAMES do not have luxury of putting hundreds of developers to make this game. Players often exploit bugs in various and creative ways that our developers would have never thought of and show interesting behavioral patterns. We need your abilities of doing exactly THAT. After the CBT ended, the feedbacks and recommendations from all of you can improve this game in a great deal. Therefore we need the players who really love gaming, someone with the spirit of frontiers who never give up.

In order to carefully select those candidates we have implemented the aspirations part in the application, and since all of you have thoughtfully filled the part we will do our best to select the testers in fair manner.

Image I heard users that are active on the free bulletin board and cafe (i.e. forum) have better chance to get selected. It this true? I heard you also check the chat board as well so...
Image This is not true. However we do check all the comments and inputs you have uploaded. Thank you tons for the cheer-ups. I would like to post replies to all of the postings but that's not quite possible... until I learn the art of doppelganger!

Image
[Real-time chat board where hot debates are still ongoing http://go.gagalive.kr/d/~~~new_TreeOfSavior]

Image
(The posting reads:
This is almost at the level of obsession.
I have never clung to not even a woman... but being obsessed like this, I just might become a stalker (to this game).)
[First of all turn your PC off and take a deep breath]

Image
[We read every single one of your inputs. Thank you very much.]

Image
(The posting reads: I have mistaken that you have super plumpy face. Now I actually see your appearance from behind, and you do have vivid purple dyed hair just like your avatar.)
Image
[This is rather red colored than purple...]

Image
(The posting reads: Tomorrow is the Third FAQ and next week we will have the testers announced.
How do I read FAQ? Since it's FAQ, [FAH-QYOO]? (roughly sounds like fxxk you))
[Please read it as [eff-ei-qyoo].Aoisora]


Image Please talk about barrack (Inn, hostel...) names and character names.
Image
Image Let me explain this with the screenshot above. "Team Name" is 레즐리 (rejeulri)(Leslie) and 'character name' is 콩콩 (kongkong).
Image
Barrack Name (Team Name) : 레즐리. Characters assigned to the Team 레즐리 : Leslie, kong2222

(Now it's official that 레즐리's English spelling is Leslie!)

Image
When you are chatting, it's all based on the 'Team Name' so when you whisper or use Microphone you can see the name 레즐리 pops up on the chat window. However, you will see both the Team Name and Character Name on the Rankings.


Image How many players can be in one (1) party, and how many characters can be created in the barracks?
Image You can have a maximum of five (5) players in one (1) party, and you can create four (4) characters in your barracks after the initial registration. Please do note that the Guild System will be omitted during this time's CBT.

We will announce the CBT winners next Wednesday.
I wish you all the luck and will be back with another GM Leslie's FAQ session.
Thank you very much.
