Based off the polls results, Prestiged players will now receive catch-up experience, here's how it will work: If the player's prestige level is equal or below 1/4 of the top prestige player, they will receive 150% of experience bonus. For example, if the top prestige player is Prestige Level 20, players that are 5 or less Prestige Level will receive the experience boost. This experience boost will no longer be applied when the player reaches the Awakening Level requirement to prestige. In this example, a player needs to be Awakening Level 1025 to prestige from level 5 to 6. Once they reach Awakening Level 1025, they will no longer benefit from the bonus.
The entire Stronghold is now Protection Zone.
The Autumn's Event map is now no-logout zone.

P.S: We'd like to apologize and clarify the lag issues we've been having lately. We understand how frustrating this is, and we want to assure you that we are fully committed to resolving these problems.
Our development team has been working to address these lag issues by implementing a series of changes and deploying various debugging methods with each reboot. Our primary goal is not only to mitigate the issues but also to pinpoint the root cause behind them.
We've made several optimizations that have completely eliminated the lag from saving and loading players, which was the main source of lag on the last season. However, we have identified that the current lag comes from a different source that was previously masked by these improvements.
Fixing lag is our top priority right now. It's important to note that these issues have proven challenging to reproduce on our test servers, which has contributed to the extended timeline for implementing a fix.
