Hi everyone!

Per our blog update last night:

Today's Open Beta Announcement (it starts January 21!) isn't the only good news for Nosgoth fans this week, as we're also happy to confirm that we'll be granting the Matchmaking Rewards we promised (http://www.nosgoth.com/blog/matchmaking-rewards-vote-for-a-class-skin) this week as well!

That means that all players who took part in the “Matchmaking Wars” -- AKA, those of you who experienced issues, bugs, and downtime while we implemented our new matchmaking system -- are being rewarded for your incredible patience, and starting Thursday and Friday of this week!

There are several things we’re lining up:


Double XP Event


We're running a Double XP Event for anyone that plays Nosgoth this weekend. This is a global event, which means all you have to do earn the bonus is play the game between Friday, January 16 (4pm GMT/ 8am PT) through Sunday, January 18 (Midnight PT).

Who is eligible? Everyone that plays during the event!




Player Banner


A special "Matchmaking Wars" Player Banner has been created as well. This is an exclusive profile banner that won’t be available to purchase that you can use to show off that you helped us during these essential tests! This banner will be awarded over the course of Thursday evening.

Who is eligible? Everyone who played between November 22 (when our matchmaking tests began) and Thursday, January 15 at 4pm GMT / 8am PST (when we'll begin the process of awarding items).




Boosters


Restored time on Boosters. Anyone that had an active booster during the “Matchmaking Wars” will have their boosters reset! Even if you didn’t experience many issues, or only lost a little time, your booster will be reset completely so it’s a fresh, new one.

Who is eligible? Everyone that had an active booster (and played) between November 22nd (when our matchmaking tests began) – and Thursday January 15th at 4pm GMT / 8am PST. The time will be added later that day.




Founders Pack/Runestones Reward Skin


Everyone that has supported Nosgoth by purchasing a Founders Pack or Runestones will receive an extra reward - the special recoloured skin. Rather than decide for you what the skin should be, we put it to a community vote. After two weeks, the results were incredibly close, but in the end, the Prophet won!

Who is eligible? Everyone that purchased Founders Pack or Runestones! The end date for this reward's eligibility will be Sunday, January 18 at 12am PT. Any purchases of Runestones made before then will count, but after that cut-off time you won’t be eligible to receive the reward. We'll start awarding the first batch on Thursday evening.

Anyone that makes a purchase of Runestones during the weekend (while our Double XP event is on) will receive the skin when our Open Beta starts on Wednesday, so you still have a chance to get it!



And there we have it! We’d like to take this opportunity to thank everyone again for all their valuable feedback, and for their patience while we have been working out the issues. We hope you enjoy the rewards, so check back for those this weekend, and have fun!

Does it mean, the booster's time will be reset later that day or the date for the reset will be announced then?

The cutoff date for eligibility is later today, at 4pm GMT. The reset will be happening after that. It might not happen on the dot at 4pm but we'll be putting that through today.

HTH :)

The boosters have now been reset, and the matchmaking banner and skin have been awarded!

If you purchase Runestones during this weekend you'll still be eligible to get the Prophet skin, but it will be awarded after the weekend.

We are still in maintenance mode while the patch goes out, at the moment, but once we're back online you'll be able to equip your banners, skins, and boosters :)

Thanks a lot not just for these rewards, but also for all the work put towards the latest patches. Really excited to see you guys develop this game, can't wait for Open Beta and a lot more content.

As per rewards - that banner is fantastic! Wearing it with pride. To be honest, it feels like it easily puts some of the seasonal ones that are purchasable with money/runes to the side. And no, I don't care that literally everyone has it right now as I hope this game will go big and all 500-1000 current players will end up forming only 1-5% of the total population (the less, the better!).
