Greetings Desterians! I'm back and starting with an announcement as we enter September. We've started laying out our plans for the next big update, and we're so excited to get to work and have an epic release once again in the coming months!

September Item Bundle
We have an exciting bundle release this month, which introduces a brand new custom weapon; The Ice Lifter. This unique weapon contains Sharpness V as-well as the ability to lift opponents into the air, disadvantaging them.
- Custom weapon: The Ice Lifter
- 2x Legendary Crate Keys
To be abundantly clear, this is a one-time release. This item will only be in stores for a month, and after that, gone from the network per the release of the new maps. Give it a try while it’s around, and let us know what you think of this concept of custom weapons!
State of Server
For the last few weeks, the Forums have been filled with drama, and our player counts have been reflective of the dissatisfaction I know full well you’ve been feeling. My goal is not to ignore that, but also not to dwell in it. Desteria will never be able to move forward as long as we dwell on the past. There will be no changes to the Management Team. The Staff Team will continue to grow and improve itself. We’ll see our newest Staff Wave coming out tomorrow alongside the first of the month. I will again be giving Desteria my full attention and energy towards our new big release.
People have been complaining about the state of the server since it was released. We have our peaks and our lows, but we always pull through. There is no intention or desire to give up on Desteria. Not on the part of Management, Development, or Staff Teams. If you’re still with us, we’re still here for you. Out with the pessimism, anger, and hatred for the state of things. Let us refocus on optimism, productivity, and communal respect for one another. No one person or entity is going to mold Desteria into what we want it to become - we all need to work towards that together. I challenge all of you to get involved in your own way towards helping me make Desteria’s next major global reset the best it can possibly be.
To address your concerns, here are some insider tips on what you can look forward to in the near future. Our goal is to directly pull from the ideas we’ve heard from you towards our next release. From newly reimagined builds for the server, a revitalized FFA that includes dueling, to a completely new take on a more diversified economy, more attention to (new) bosses, and additional yet-to-be-announced content already in the pipeline. All of this content is designed to keep you all entertained even after your bases are built and the beginning week(s) of the map has ended. Content that should keep you logging in throughout the entirety of the duration of shortened map life spans.
As mentioned above, we're starting work on our next huge update and so right now is a better time than ever to be creating suggestion threads. You can find that section of the Forums here: https://desteria.com/community/forums/suggestions.15/. Get involved and tell us what you want to see released next.
Also, keep an eye on the Community Polls forum, found here: https://desteria.com/community/forums/community-polls.52/. Here we’ll be having some controversial debates as to choosing what style of gameplay we’ll be seeing in the new upcoming maps. Be respectful of everyone's opinions when voicing your own. Let's create an epic season, together.
