ZhyperMU Monthly Headlines

Hello my dear Zhyperians.
This time of the month is upon us once again, and with it comes the summary of Community News of the Month.
And thus, on behalf of the whole Journalist Team, I, Rainbow Dash, give you the February issue of Zhyperian News.
Enjoy the read!
It is no secret for a majority of Zhyperians that they belong to the biggest and greatest MU community. However, there is a reason for this undoubted fact. Indeed, over the years, tons of players from every corner of the world have been joining our universe, making our close-knit family larger.
While some of these newcomers got interested in our server as they were going through XtremeTop100's rankings, others became Zhyperians because they were invited over by members of our community. This is precisely what Ret, one of our Head Game Masters, has analyzed and worked on. On the 31st of January, he came up with a hot piece of news explaining the idea he had developed : the "Referral Reward System". So here is an insight into what this exciting new service offers.
First, the principle is extremely simple. Make your friends join us, and you will earn rewards. The more you will contribute to the enlargement of our community, the more generously you will be rewarded. In short, if you have friends who are fond of video games, it is high time you let them know about the wonders of ZhyperMU. Not only will you gain the presence of friends of yours in-game, but you will also receive wonderful prizes for doing so.
However, your friends' attachment to our server must be genuine and solid. In concrete terms, they must be active players and forumers for at least thirty days, with an average post count per day of one. And this is not the only condition for you to get a prize. First, your friends must not be former players; they have to be genuine newcomers. Then, when they create their forum account, they have to refer it to you. And finally, if they play in the same Internet cafe as you do, your application for the reward must include pictures of the shop and of the two of you inside it. Obviously, as you may have guessed, very serious investigations will take place to prevent any form of cheat or scam. But if these requirements are met, you will earn a one-month Zhyper Hardcore tag if you bring one friend, a one-month Ultra Gamer tag if you bring three, and perhaps more if your helpfulness reaches outstanding levels.
The second good news will make you crazy about this newly introduced service. Once every three months, the player who brought the greatest number of his friends will be given an absolutely marvelous prize, which is none other than one hundred cash points. Therefore, there will be a point system, and every time you make someone join us, you will earn one point. Try your best to rank first. But even if you do not become the most fervent user of the referral system, there is something that you may already have understood and that you must keep in mind. No matter the number of friends you think you can invite over, you will find your happiness using this new service. Just do not forget to offer your help and guidance to every player who will become part of the large Zhyperian family thanks to you.
Happy inviting, and of course, happy gaming.
If February has proven something to our community, it is undoubtedly that ZhyperMU is not a monotonous place where nothing happens. Indeed, the recent updates announced throughout the month not only have been numerous, but have also revived many Zhyperians? interest for logging in the game and hunting for rare items.
Overall, three different kinds of updates were announced to the community. Here is an insight into each of them.
The first sort will delight those who are fond of hunting. Two new items were introduced: the Silver Box and the Golden Box. What is truly exciting about these boxes is that they both drop season four items, which can only pave the way to a better access of the most powerful items. Moreover, they can be found from monsters in nearly any map, which offers an incredibly wide range of hunting places, while preventing any hunting spot from becoming overcrowded. Finally, for the greatest pleasure of those who like encountering stronger monsters, bosses will also posthumously give golden and silver boxes at a much higher rate. As a matter of fact, Administrator Nocturnal added spice to Aida by creating the bosses called Hell Mains, coming out once every ninety minutes in which which the boxes can be found at a rate close to twenty-five percent.
The second update is for those who care much about balance and core adjustments. As one may have noticed while certain skills, such as Magic Gladiator's ice skill, were far too mighty and therefore unpopular among the player-versus-player fans, others were not interesting to use because their power was lower than what it was supposed to be. Consequently, a great number of skills had their basic damage values revamped, and Head Game Master Holmes created a thread in the forum for the players to give their feedback on how they feel about the new state of the balance between characters. Besides these updates, it must be noted that many master level values and bugs were also fixed.
Finally, Community Manager Mishel announced an update regarding in-game automated events. A new schedule was implemented for all of them, in order to give players from every corner of the world the opportunity to participate in those thrilling events on a fair basis. While a certain number of Forumers expressed their dissatisfaction with such a sudden change, others pointed at how the overhaul of the automated events times was significantly increasing the chances for the beginners to collect cash points. What is certain is that the enjoyment that one can feel when finding and bringing the right item to Santa Claus remains intact.
Happy hunting, and of course, happy gaming.
Its the most dreaded thing, and at the same time cherished, in the whole universe. We can hate it and love it,
its all around us and everyone are affected by it, although on this forum, it gives us more reasons to hate it than to love it, for it takes the lives of our dear Staff Members and forces them to leave our community.
Unable to fulfill their duties depending on the team they're in, one by one they are consumed by the lack of "time" which they need in order to be either here on forums, or in-game itself, and thus, they step down, focusing on the things which hold a higher amount of importance to them, this is known to us as the "real life", and nothing needs as much "time" as real life does.
This month we've had many departures, almost from every Staff Team present here, sadly we cannot do anything to stop them from leaving, so at least we can give them a warm farewell and thank them for serving within our community, all of them will always be welcomed if they ever wish to come back.
Departing from the Moderator Team this month are the following staff members, the awesome Lead Moderator Syche and the not as awesome but still pretty awesome Moderators Kurama and wHite1, we thank you guys for your services.
Leaving the Orange Team, or better known as the GFX'ers Corner, GFXer Jay. and two other test GFX'ers whom sadly did NOT pass their 2 week test time, sir EpicMan and HellSurfer. , we thank you guys for both serving our community as well as attempting to take a shot in serving it.
And last but not least, we have the Game Masters team, whom roam across the game itself, providing help and information, although the following ones sadly won't be doing so anymore, nevertheless, they will always be welcomed back, both to rejoin the team, as well as taking an another try at passing their tests in order to become fully pledged Game Masters, if they wish to do so.
And thus, departing from the Game Masters team, we have the following, the awesome Head Game Master Vanyard whos been serving as a HGM in our community for a very long time, we also have the following Game Masters, MightyMok, Mudlock, .Dhez, crazen and JMarion leaving the team. And lastly, the ones whom attempted to take a shot at becoming a part of the Game Master team but failed their Test Period, we have Test Game Master Sugarlips, .Yxor, Hersheys and iRonark.
We thank you all guys for both being the part of the Staff Teams as well as attempting to become a fully pleged members of the team, many of you will always be welcomed to rejoin if you wish to do so, whether it is to be a fully pledged staff members, or re-attempting to take a shot at become ones.
And what a glorious choo choo train it is, filled with people whom take the time out of their "real life" time in order to serve the people of this remarkable, multi-cultural community. While we did have some sad departures from this amazing train this month, like on every train station, people get off the train AND get on it, resulting in the never-ending cycle of firing and recruiting.
As mentioned earlier, there have been some sad departures, but we've also had some happy boardings, thus we should go through the train wagons and give a warm welcome to all those whom are boarding the train once again as well as boarding it for the first time in their lives.
All kinds of wagons have been aboard this month, the Game Master Wagon, Moderators Wagon and the GFX'ers Wagon, and thus without a further ado, let us all welcome the following people whom aboard the various Wagons in order to serve this community with their skills and time.
Aboarding the Game Masters Wagon this month, we have Draig, .Septeight and Nduongdl, they have joined in as Test Game Master and passed their testing time, which now makes them fully pledged Game Masters, also, we have two more Test Game Master whom joined last month but finally passed their test time this month, and thus, they too are now fully pledged Game Masters, iWorm and llCryll, welcome and congratulations to all of them.
Joining the Green Wagon this month, the following two members have served the community before and are now rejoining back to serve it once again, give a warm welcome back to TheCookieMonster and SOULEXODIA, as well as the new Test Moderators whom joined this month and already passed their testing time, thus becoming fully pledged Moderators, Shinobu, .Yood, Necrofer and sEanTEE, we welcome you all, and last but not least, lets congratulate Schyler or now know as Jamir for becoming a Lead Moderator, he has been serving the community as a Moderator for a long time, and with the departure of Syche, he has now been promoted as a reward for his long-standing services.
And for the last Wagon on the Choo Choo Train, the GFX'ers Wagon, boarding it are the following GFX'ers whom have passed their Testing time and are now fully pledged members of GFX Team, lets welcome and congratulate JinRipark, FORSAKEN and .James. .
Remember my dear forumers, as long as the engine of the train works, it will continue to drive forward, some may come aboard and some may departure from it, but in the end, its all about the community as a whole, which makes up the engine of this amazing Choo Choo Train.
Last month, many players of this community could not vote due to a bugged vote timer. Because of this bug, many players complained and asked for the VIP points and credit points they wanted. When the players complained, the reality came that they would vote for our server only if there was something in return. Suddenly, on "Suggestion Thread", there were players who wanted to increase the points that can be earned through voting. Where is the voluntary voting for our server there? What is that, friends with benefits? Anyways, there were players who disagreed with them and made them eat their words.
As of the miscellaneous news, the vote goal for the month of February includes awesome rewards. For instance, reaching the goal will enable new services. However, credit points to cash points exchange is not part of the promised rewards. Do not be sad because there are good news for you. Firstly, the vote goal was reduced from ten thousand votes to nine thousand votes. Secondly, if the vote goal is reached, the "kill the Game Master" event and the Arena guild challenge will both have a cash points prize on March, while credit points to cash points service will be added to the list of rewards for that same month.
As of the updates regarding players services, our Administrator Nocturnal announced that the bug on vote timer was now fixed. After the announcement, there were players who complained saying that they still could not vote, but that was not the case anymore several minutes later. As the vote timer was fixed, we may be able to reach the vote goal with nine thousand votes. Now, each and every Zhyperian should vote with love for our server even if there is nothing in return.
It has been nearly a year since we've reached the vote goal which is set up ever month. We were almost there many times, but we failed nevertheless. Most of us vote as many times as we're allowed to do so within the span of 24 hours. The main reason for why we fail, is because players fail themselves when they write down the captcha code, they either do it incorrectly which will in the end result in a "Vote Out" instead of "Vote In" or they just click the "vote" button simply to gain the Credit Points without even bothering to enter a captcha code at all, which in the end results in us not getting any kind of votes, may they be "In" or "Out".
Everytime the Vote Goal is announced, the staff members try to motive the players to vote. We all know that it contains a lot of profit that will definitely satisfy our thirst for rewards as well as it will please the Senior Staff members. Staff members provide us with many fitting rewards for voting, such as Game Master's events, discounts on tag subscriptions in forum, and also the possibility to trade three option items together with the gold pets. The vote goal every month, as always, depends on the decision of our admin. But, the most common goal is ten thousand in-votes.
Before we reach our objective we need to vote with our hearts and with the correct "Captcha code" also. Let's start voting for our community to once again obtain the crown on the uppermost part of the ranking. And I am glad to say that we are on the top 10 ranking of mu servers. Sounds great right? So, keep on voting and stay motivated by our charming server and its community.
We all know about the good news, namely, the updates regarding in-game. Most of us did not quite expect expect Nocturnal to fix many bugged unused and abused skills, as well as to buff up some items at the same time, but after a long wait and the utmost anticipation, it has been done, unused skills have been buffed up, bugged skills have been fixed or removed disabled.
But its not the only update this month which many of us did not expect. Although opinions regarding some of the updates vary between the players. For example some people don't quite like the idea that Summoners Reflection skill which was known for it notorious Reflect Bug, has been disabled. The users of summoner class were annoyed because according to them, the reflect skills is the main asset of Summoner class, and without it, the summoner itself is not as strong as it used to be. In reply to that, Nocturnal has informed us that this skill removal is not permanent, but it will remain disabled until its fixed in the upcoming updates.
That is one only of the many updates that have been announced. Admin Nocturnal is still planning to implement more of those in order to make the game more balanced for everyone, as well as to remove all the known and unknown bugs. Therefore always remember to report any bugs you may come across in-game so they can be known to us and thus, removed. As long as there are bugs, more updates will continue to come in order to rid our server of things that unbalance it.
I'm sure many of you are quite familiar with the Gens PvP system in-game, but regarding the in-depth information about this system, what as a player do you know about the Gens Guilds, why is it a PvP system and why do both Gens Duprian and Gens Vanert seem to go at each other throats which is clearly presented by the accumulation of Contribution Points when a member of one guild kills a member of the other guild.
Well, its very simple actually, simple, but not quite so ordinary. Both Gens Duprian and Gens Vanert are named after Lord Duprian and Lord Vanert whom are a very highly placed Nobles in the Empire of Mu Continent, and both of those families hate each other as fire hates water. Mu Continent overall is well known for the Legendary Monsters and Places in and on it, usually its the Evil Forces which threaten the Empire of Mu, but with both the Duprian and Vanert families going at each other, it might just be the internal quarrel that will ruin the powerful Empire, and not the evil forces of Kundun which the Empire thrives to defeat.
But not both of the families are evil, while Lord Duprian seeks to obtain the crown over the Mu Empire by any means necessary, Lord Vanert thrives to provide a fair life for all that inhabit the Mu Continent in order to create a fair Empire, where everyone can live and prosper in harmony and peace.
Lord Duprians goal is to obtain the crown of Mu Continent merely for his own interest of obtaining power over the most powerful faction on the Continent and beyond, while Vanert wants the crown not for himself, but for the humans and creatures alike that live on the Continent, but as long as Lord Duprian and his family are alive, the quarrel between those two families may just ruin the Empire for which they both are trying to obtain the rule over.
And thus, the Gens System has been established to recruit powerful heroes in order to turn the tides of war for one of the families. And so, being a powerful hero whom travels across the Mu Continent, which family will you join, will it be the family of Duprian who selflessly seeks power over the Empire, or the family of Vanert who wants to create an Empire based on harmony and peace between all, OR will you simply stand aside and watch as both of the families slowly ruin the Empire which they seek to rule over with such anticipation?
The choice is yours, may it be a wise one in the end.
As of lately, a new in-game update has been implemented, the update itself was to bring a new challenge for the players, and this challenge being in form of powerful bosses which will surely provide many people will fun hunting.
Those powerful Boss mobs appear in different maps, such as Atlans, Tarkan, Icarus, Aida and Land of Trials. Some names of these monsters may be an old memory for you, and some of those names may have never came across your eyes before, nevertheless, the following monsters now roam those different maps under the following names: "Hydra", "Death Beam Knight", "Phoenix" , "Hell Main" and "Zaikan". These powerful bosses appear in their maps every sixty minutes to ninety minutes, depending on when they have been defeated, their number will also vary, so thread lightly, for their power must not be under estimated.
Of course like every boss monster, they have a fitting reward for being defeated, while it has a low drop chance, its still worth hunting. All these bosses have a chance of dropping either a Golden Box or a Silver Box, both of these boxes will reward you with a Season 4 and 5, 2 optioned Excellent item, the options are random so its all up to luck.
Naturally, like every boss in every game, these ones will be not only hard to kill due to their massive defense and health, but they will also pack quite a punch too, for their damage is something that shouldn't be underestimated, so make sure you bring your best gear, because they are not a challenge that can be taken on by newcomers. Sadly that is not the last of your trouble, before even attempting to challenge them, first of all you have to find them, for they roam the entire map and quite often then tend to hide in corners which are usually passed by.
So, what are you waiting for, open up your Vault, pick your strongest set and weapons and attempt to hunt those Bosses in order to obtain fitting rewards. And find a friend that can help you as well, the more the merrier.
You are a glorious Blade Knight Bounty Hunter trying to bring justice to the continent, in order to attain your goals you are summoned to find the most wanted mobs of the century.
