"We would like to invite you to join us in the new Official Neocron IRC Channel, where you can discuss the game and its community as well as a variety of other topics. Several members of the Neocron Support Team will be present in the channel to join in the discussion and to further break down the mystery of the team as well as the barrier between it and the community."
So if you want to have a chat about Neocron with other players and some of the support team, you can either use your own IRC client and connect to irc.neocron.info and channel #neocron, or you can use this trusty little web interface. (Requires Java to be enabled in your browser)
Older runners in the population of the great city of Neocron, who remember the time before the death of (our great leader) Reeza, will also remember a small news company known as the neocronicle. For quite some time the holowriters used by the reporters have remained silent as runners hunted the reporters for both sides of the war. However, no longer! The techhaven network is pleased to inform all runners tuned to our frequency that the neocronicle feed has been reactivated using the official forums .
Most recently reports have been posted surrounding the organisation of a defence force to remove a warbot force attacking the city gates (seriously how on Earth can these harbingers of doom still be around, surely someone somewhere must be making them?), the official organisation of a task force in order to cull the population of the Maulers in the deserts, and additionally reporting on press releases from a well known soft drinks company who has changed their slogan and now is giving away 'free' samples of their product in the safezone Plaza 1 medicare.
We here at the Techhaven Network are pleased to once again be sharing the RPOS networks with the Neocronicle once again, and we look forward to working with the Neocronicle team again in the future reporting on world news as it happens. We advise all runners to continue to monitor both the Neocronicle and Techhaven Network feeds for up to date news, as it happens throughout the city and waste lands.
In additional news, the Techhaven Network would like to state for the record that any rumours concerning the impending release of a 'Techhaven Cola' are totally unfounded, however we can state that should we go into that business we would never use such cheap tactics as to give away samples.
If you haven't noticed, the Neocron Support Team have been quite busy lately, in bringing some excellent and fun events to Terra. The latest was the annual Easter Egg hunt with a bit of a twist - some of the eggs spawned extra surprises ranging from mutants to snakes!
Now the Neocron Support Team is asking for your input on what sort of events you want to see. You can vote in this poll in this thread, but make sure you also leave a comment.
today is indeed a sad day because we had to do what we must do. Total Lockdown of REAKKTOR.
But it's not the end of "KK"
Will get with more info soon. Today I want to be sad...
I will make an official statement soon.
The THN's sypathies go out to those at Reakktor who lost their jobs. In the meantime, it looks like the only hope for the future of Neocron is Nukklear and Neocron Reloaded. What will become of Neocron 2, the Neocron website and forums remains to be seen.
After the recent hardware failure on the Neocron servers, and the move to a new data centre, it has been reported that all issues are now resolved.
The Neorcron servers where recently located in Germany (Rumoured to be Reakktor's Office, but we think it was Kirk Lenke basement!) They are now located on a VPS somewhere in Canada. This will effect ping times for players from Europe, but hopefully improve ping times for players based in the US.
Any thoughts and discussion on the server move, it's best to head here to this thread on the official forums.
Kirk Lenke CEO of Reakktor and also Nukklear made a surprise announcement about a new website containing details about Neocron Reloaded, which has got everyone here on the Tech Haven Network and in the Neocron community very excited.
Since then there has been a flurry of acitivity on the offical forums. The first major bit of activity was Kirk Lenke finally posting answers to the questions we all asked months ago about Neocron.
In other news the community has been really backing and supporting KK in this difficult time. A new GM called Jord has just started on the GM team, and he did take time to post on the forums. Also the community welcomed back 2 very well known and respected members of Reakktor, Nidhogg and Hoder.
Also for once there has been a bit of in-game forums posts for a change. First of was from a certain member of the THN who finally leveled his APU monk to INT 100 , and a Gold WoC3 PA party was held in Plaza 1.
Overall the community response and reaction to the insolvency news has been very positive in supporting Reakktor, and it's clear none of the community want to see Neocron go.
So to Reakktor and everyone, keep the faith. Everyone at the THN and everyone in the Neocron community is behind you.
