Scarlet Blade F.A.Q.

Le Frequently Asked Questions
General

• When is Scarlet Blade Beta/Release?
There is currently no official date set for beta or release, aka Soon™.

• Will this version of the game be censored?
There will only be slight adjustments made to the Sentinel class and NPCs that share the Sentinel character model. All other graphical content will remain as it is in the native version. [Official Statement]

• Will Aeria offer an optional patch to remove the censoring?
There is no official statement on this.

• What are Scarlet Blade's system requirements?
The system requirements can be found here.

• Is it true you can only be female in SB?
Yes, you can not make a male character in SB.


Beta Phases

• What is Closed Beta?
Closed Beta is a stage of development in a game's life where players are able to play the game for a short time in order to help find any problems. In most cases, only those invited by the company or those that have beta keys (codes to get access to the game) are able to participate. However, in my experience with Aeria, everyone who applies for Closed Beta is allowed to participate.

• Where can I apply for Closed Beta?
You can apply on the Scarlet Blade Homepage.

• How long does Closed Beta last?
Generally it lasts a few weeks, however this can vary on how the testing phase goes.

• Will Closed Beta be wiped?
Yes.

• What does wiped mean?
Wiped means that everything is erased from the game. Characters, items, levels, everything.

• Why bother playing Closed Beta then?
Note that this phase is only a test. It is not the live or full-release of the game yet. However, you do get the knowledge ahead of time of gameplay elements, and knowing you helped test and refine the game for better gameplay. Sometimes players who participate in Closed Beta receive items as a thanks from Aeria, in the full release version of the game.

• What is Open Beta?
It is the last testing phase before the game goes live. Everyone is welcome to participate in Open Beta as well.

• Does Open Beta get wiped?
Most likely not. Generally, Open Beta merges into Release, however if there are game breaking issues, a wipe may be required.



More questions may be added in the future as needed. ^-^

Applications for GS have yet to be posted, so for now there are no Scarlet Blade GS's. As for GM's, the team right now consists of Superman and Tactics, I'm sure other announcements regarding the release team of GM's will be made in the future.

While no official statement, it seems like the way they appear to be working does not lend itself well to offering a patch. It sounds like they just request things, and Korean company works on it and sends it over.

Considering this, it would cause confusion if Aeria requested changes to Sentinel class and a patch for the original version. Hence it seems as good as certain that there won't be one.

And I thought I had already given feedback on this earlier, but can't see my post.


This however brings me to an interesting extra question that would be nice in the FAQ.

How much will Aeria games have influence over?
- Cash shop pricing
- Events
etc.

Yayy I'm looking forward to Tactics! He seems funny, but I've never heard of Superman o.o... I was asking about the GS partially to know if any of them are transferring over

Usually even already tagged/existing GameSages on other teams will have to apply to transfer to Scarlet Blade, same as a regular player would ^^ The procedure is that in order for them to join SB, they first need to officially resign from their game before applying to another one.

This happened with Eden Eternal when Lime Odyssey GS's sought to join the team, as well as a few Dream of Mirror Online GS's when their game closed.
