General News.


Hello ladies and gentlemen, we at Aurora have some special news for everyone today! We have officially locked in our official relaunch date for our game servers. Aurora will go back online on Friday, May, 17th at around 5pm eastern time. With this news you can expect to see us begin marketing the game once again on YouTube and other platforms to start bringing in some new faces. You can expect a more detailed news letters in regards to development and our plans overall over the coming weekends.

First lets get into the various events that will be taking place as we move closer and closer to launch!

  1. Burgz’s Bug Extermination Event
  2. OSRS GP Giveaways
  3. Donation Promo

1.  OSRS GP Giveaways

  • Starting Friday, April 22nd we will begin doing weekly 100m OSRS giveaways, these can be redeemed for OSRS or in-game donations.

2. Burgz’s Bug Extermination Event

With the new bug fixes / updates coming out I’ve thought about a BUG event brought to you by all the Staff Team that should please all parties in the end. It will give a lot of new community members insight on what Aurora has to offer in game AND what’s to come in the future. Also the amount of work that is being done to make this game 100%. This event would let members gain tons of knowledge about the server, it will also give you a slight edge on players once the server releases, especially knowing where everything is and how it works. It will also give the staff team more bugs to fix so we can have a smoother server release.

How does it work?

  • Players will be rewarded a financial amount ($0.01-$5.00) for reporting any bug they find currently on the beta for the remaining time it is online.
    • All bugs must be reported in the #Report-Bugs channel on discord
  • Burgz is doing this out of the kindness of his heart, and will donate to Aurora in your name so that you may claim the benefits to enjoy!
  • Aurora will also add a 50% bonus to each donation reward as a token of our appreciation.

Rules?

  • Players must reach at least $25 in bug reports to collect one of the prizes in this event
  • Staff may not use unreleased content towards their report list
  • Any dupes found will be rewarded with a bonus in-name donation
  • Any game breaking bugs will be rewarded with a bonus in-name donation
  • Any player who participates and reaches the $20 mark will earn the loyalist rank coming with the relaunch

    Rewards?

    1st Place will receive a $100 in-name donation ($150)
    2nd Place will receive a $50 in-name donation ($75)
    3rd Place will receive a $25 in-name donation (37.50)

3. Donation Promo Event

  • During this time users can use the promotion code “ANWBXRMJ” on check out to receive 50% off on any purchase of credits (Please note the donation store in game may be different on relaunch). Donations are voluntary to help Aurora, but are by no means necessary but if you do choose to support us leading up to launch this is an excellent way to increase your rewards at a reduced price.
