After this, we received all information needed to make it possible for russian players to transfer their account over to our servers. After some work and a lot of testing we got the system to transfer up and running. Yesterday the e-mails on how to transfer went out to all russian players and as you might have noticed they have started to transfer and play on the EU/US servers.Make sure to make them feel welcome!To welcome them we'll run a Blood Coin boost weekend!
Starting tomorrow (Friday) at 12:00 UTC and all the way until Monday 12:00 UTC, you'll earn additional 50% Blood Coins while playing!

December is here and Sweden is already completely covered with snow so we closed our biggest airport today! GG! You’d think we’d know how to handle snow by now....
New season starting next week. With the poll from last week and the discussion that followed we’ve decided to not reset grades for this season change.
There’s a LAN in the southern parts of Sweden we’ve sponsored a bunch of times before and now they’re about to host their fifth event. Spektrum 5.0 takes place in Lund 2-5 of January, if you’re nearby make sure to grab a seat! We plan to make sure they have some giveaways for you guys if you do!

December is soon here and that also means that the end of the current season is getting near. The season rewards got released this week, go in-game to see them.Grade reset
There’s a hot topic that always occur at a season change: grade reset. The last few seasons we’ve done a grade reset to keep it consistent. But to be honest, we’re still not sure what is the best option. Reset or no reset. So we thought we’d give you the chance to let us know what your opinion on the subject is. We are not promising anything, we just want to see the results before we make a decision. So if you have an opinion on the subject, please use this thread
to answer the poll and discuss.Marketplace

One of the most known BLC players, Entarion, have started a campaign on Reddit to activate the community a bit. One thing he's working on is starting up a new Roundtable. If you're interested in seeing what he's up to and want to know what you can do to help, take a look here
As you might have noticed we’ve re-added the Blood Coin price on Team slots. As we mentioned in the previous update the community seem to feel that the problem to acquire in any other way than real money is a big issue that prevents the game from moving forward and players from completely enjoying their experience.
They are now available in the marketplace at the price of 6800 Blood Coins. New release!
Astronomer Cosmonaut Outfit!You can also get Metal Warden at 30% discount and all her accessories at 50% off!
We have read a bunch of posts regarding the problem with acquiring additional team slots and that you feel that you require a lot of team slots to not have to disband teams all the time to play with friends in the ladder. As a free to play user this seem to be a big issue since you only get a few slots on a free account, but on top of that it seem like player with editions also feel they have a need for even more slots. We’ll look into the problem to see what we can do to make this less of a hassle for you.Marketplace
This week you can get the Armoured Outfits at a 40% discount!Midweek sale
: Afro Ranid Emote - 70% off between Tuesday to Thursday!

As you all probably know, there’s a storm roaming the US east coast. The hosting center where the Bloodgate and US Game Servers are hosted is located on the east coast in New Jersey. Just like a lot of other parts of the affected area the hosting center is currently running on backup generators. As it looks now they have good faith that they will be able to sustain until the regular power gets back online, but there is a chance that they will run out of backup power which will cause our servers to shut down.
So if you are not able to connect to the game later today/tomorrow this will likely be the issue and they’ll do what they can to get things up and running as soon as possible.
