Would you like to play a classic MMORPG but can’t be fussed to experience things like chat, using AoE skills, or even being able to log in to the game entirely? Then you probably are trying to play SUN Classic, Webzen’s relaunched version of Soul of the Ultimate Nation, which went live for Japan, Taiwan, and South Korea this past Wednesday, March 10th. And it’s already an absolute morass of problems.
Among the known issues currently beleaguering the game are a shutdown of the game’s chat, the inability to use any AoE skills of any kind, queues for accessing the first four channels (with a rather resigned “We are really sorry for any inconvenience”), and authentication server failures that have caused players to not even access the game entirely. The team has noted that the issue is being addressed, and points out that players who don’t see their characters at the selection screen are in the queue and not having loading errors as one might reasonably assume. The devs are also cracking down on those who are trying to access SUN Classic “through unusual methods.”
Details on when this MMORPG is set to go to other global regions are thin at the moment, but considering all of the current issues, that might be for the best until things get shored up.
