The Time Has Come...

The Meeroos Pre-Order Launch will be releasing officially on:

Wednesday, May 18th beginning @ 2pm SLT


The official public launch will occur on:

Saturday, May 21st @ 2pm SLT at both Meeroos Store locations:

Haute Couture:


If you have Pre-ordered, you will get your Official Meeroos release packaged with your gifts on Wednesday, May 18th. Your Pre-Order Trunk will be delivered to you automatically.

Tonight was an overwhelming success.

We delivered over 2500 chests from the database flawlessly.

The only bug we discovered was the server still registering some folks as having a previously rezzed Beta Chest and auto deleting their new one. We simply redelivered these manually.

I know....

...That waiting is hard, but please, for the moment...

Bare With!

So, we were all geared up for last night, we play the diligent role of Santa Claus and checked our list once, then twice. Some things you simply can't anticipate until you test with a large audience, and that's when the flaws are revealed.

For us, it was the Firewall on the servers which reacted to the barrage of activity by denying service under the belief it was under a malicious attack. It's a safeguard in every secure system, to ensure that the data is preserved under a threat. That's why so many of you experienced issues last night.

... for one last big encore!

Your Meeroos will be delivered just after 8pm SLT. Here's what we want to see happen to properly stress test the new servers!

8:00pm SLT you can attach your new HUD and collect any HUD update that is available.

8:20pm SLT We will send out Chests as quickly as possible.

Begin unpacking your Chest as quickly as possible! (Remember, do not open the contents and extract to inventory, you'll break it!) Simply click on the Chest and unpack it from the dropdown menu that appears.

We've been aggregating all of your feedback and information over the last few weeks in order to complete one last BIG update to improve the Meeroos experience! We also decided to take one great big step toward safety and simulate another "Launch Condition" scenario to test the brand new servers we've just upgraded too.

Lots to report here on our end!

First off, I'm not pleased with the results of our pummeling the servers. They didn't stand up to our expected standard of performance. On release of Open Beta, may people had database connection errors, blue Meeroos and vanishing content. We also crashed our pre-orders for a bit. On release of the update intended to fix the stump crashes, a small amount of people experienced lost Meeroos and regard points. This is a good thing! This is what we needed to experiment with and see so we resolve all of these issues before launch!

We've been in open beta for a couple of days now, so I wanted to give you all some insight on what we hope to achieve from this phase of the game and what we've learned!

Visit the Oracle here:

With you HUD attached, click ONCE on the Oracle, the figure with outspread arms. She will greet you. If nothing appears immediately or if the sim is lagging, you may have to wait for her to respond.

She will respond in GREEN CHAT - a communication between only herself and you. In this she will provide you with a unique key. Now that you have your Key, make sure you keep it in a safe place. This is private and exclusive to you and is your identity on the server! Don't share it with anyone!

I'd like to provide you a little bit of information on what to expect in our upcoming phase of Open Beta! This timeline should help answer some of the questions we've received and clear up any confusion about Pre-Launch orders and Open Beta testing.
