COV Test Server Event: Recluse’s Victory

This week the City of Villains Test Server will be holding an event in the new Issue 7 PvP zone, Recluse’s Victory! That’s the good news, the better news is that all characters created during the special two day event will be allowed to auto-level to 40 to experience this new dynamic zone.

The COV Recluse’s Victory Test Server event will start May 24th at around 11:00 am Central and end on May 26th around 8:00 am Central.

Before this playtest, all character information will be backed up, and then wiped off of the test server. Character transfer service will be disabled during this time. All players who log in to the Training Room during this test will need to create new characters. (How to install the Test Server) To get started, simply create a new character, and it will take you directly into Recluses’ Victory, instead of Atlas Park, Galaxy City, or Outbreak.
