Monuments + Beacons - New Season Start Date
Hi, Mudders - We're currently working on Hackmud's next seasonal update, Monuments + Beacons. As we detailed in the announcement post back in January, Monuments + Beacons will feature the conclusion of Inner Territories alongside a brand new puzzle event, quality of life improvements, assorted server upgrades, and more Ascii Hats(TM). As the start date of the new season draws closer, however, it's become increasingly apparent that we need more time in order to ensure that Monuments + Beacons as good as it can be. In particular, we're keen to implement what we've learned about what worked - and what didn't work - in the previous season. The time and energy that our community invests in Hackmud events means a huge amount to us, and we want to ensure that your investment is rewarded with an event that is as fair, fun, and robust as we can make it. In order to do this, we're pushing back the start date of Monuments + Beacons by a week, to February 21st, 2020, at 1800 UTC. We're very sorry for the delay and for any disappointment caused, but we believe that this'll result in a better season in the long run. We hope that you'll join us tomorrow, February 13th, for MUDCON 2020 @ 2000UTC - a video call where Hackmud players and developers gather to talk about the state of the MUD, ask questions, and share stories. Even if you can't make it to MUDCON, you'll find some little friends waiting for you in-game on February 21st.
