First off sorry for progress being very slow/no recent updates as been busy trying raise funds for servers and trying get new art assets, code and other bits.
Good news though enough has been saved for 8 blade servers which should mean alphas will be starting soon just need to add the software,assign ip's etc.
The game will be F2P but to keep servers running it will mean need support from micro transactions ads etc. It wont be selling power more cosmetics, quests, membership etc.
When alphas start it will probably start very basic and generic but with funding will come improvements on all aspects such as performance,graphics,more mobs/npc better ai etc but each update will hopefully bring new quests or improve something.
For those interested here a short video of the in house servers being powered up
