Due to unforeseen issues, we have had to delay the release of HAWKEN: Ascension until September 10. However, you can join us this weekend to playtest the new content.We have an update regarding the deployment of HAWKEN: Ascension that was originally scheduled for September 5.

We've recently discovered some brand new issues that are preventing the patch from meeting our quality standards. In light of this, we have decided to adjust our target release date of HAWKEN: Ascension to Tuesday, September 10. This will allow us to fix these problems and perform more stress testing. In order to do this, we need your assistance!

In order to ensure the success of this test, we will be granting all pilots temporary access to the current HAWKEN: Ascension build. Your mission is this:

  • Receive email with instructions on how to download the client.

  • Download client and install.

  • Play the game and try your best to break our servers.

This test will take place this weekend, and we will provide more details when they become available. Keep in mind that any progress made during this test will not be saved.

Also, as a show of our appreciation, we will be providing everyone who participates in this special test with a code for a 7-Day XP Boost. This code will be able to be redeemed any time you'd like.

As a final note, please be aware that while we're always open to hearing your feedback, that is not the priority for this test and we are not be making it a primary focus.

We apologize for the delay, but we appreciate your assistance in making this release as smooth as possible!

---

I've seen several questions asking what is required in order to receive the email. Follow these steps to make sure you don't miss it!

At least we caught this before Ascension went public.

Be sure to notify the folks on the Facebook/Twitter feed.

I laughed and I admit there's still a smile on my face hahahaha.

BUT, it's cool that you're letting people at least try it out with the disclaimer that it still has fixes to be done. Glad you guys caught the problem ahead of time rather than during or after the patch.

exactly ! It would be a disaster if it's released with the existing errors !

Stress testing.
In other words, get as many people as possible to play.

Will the emails just arrive, or do we have to do anything?

Will the download patch the current hawken install to an "intermediate version" or is it a separate client?

typing ";" in the chat box used to.
Spamming the servers with attempts to log-in sometimes works.

Try everything you would normally do, and then do the opposite. If that doesn't work try doing everything inbetween.

How exactly is this weekend test run going to work with account migration sorts of things? Will we do the account migration to test it? And then will we have to migrate back on Monday? And then migrate back to the update on Tuesday?

Or will we just have empty accounts for the weekend test?

Either way, I'm in.

Also try stuff like leaving and joining a ton of games very quickly or just things you normally wouldn't do, but would send a lot of requests to the servers.
