To celebrate the festivities as it should, here's what we've put together!

Double XP

  • Remington: Start: 2 PM GMT / 9 AM EST / 6 AM PST on the 28/02/14 until 10:59 PM GMT / 5:59 PM EST / 2:59 PM PST on 02/03/14

The "Pioneer Pack" for all our Pre-Subscribers

 
As for all the "Survivors" as described in the October update, starting tomorrow, all "Pioneers" players who had pre-subscribed to WAKFU before its launch on February 29th 2012 will receive a "Pioneer Pack" at their character connection or creation of a new character, which will include the following:
 
  • The Pioneer Costume (replacing the Pioneer Set)
  • The Pioneer Title (for the 3 months pre-subscribers)
  • The "Wave a Flag" emote (for the 6 months pre-subscribers)
  • The "Open a Scroll" emote (for the 1 year pre-subscribers)
 


Happy anniversary to all and see you tomorrow for a few extra surprises!

This was just to remind who they were and how we have described them during that update. smile

KHfan22|2014-02-27 16:58:43As for all the survivors during the last day of October update, starting tomorrow, all "Pioneers" players who had pre-subscribed to WAKFU before its launch on February 29th 2012 will receive a "Pioneer Pack" including the following:

The Pioneer Costume (replacing the Pioneer Set)
The Pioneer Title (for the 3 months pre-subscribers)
The "Wave a Flag" emote (for the 6 months pre-subscribers)
The "Open a Scroll" emote (for the 1 year pre-subscribers)

^ Does this mean those who subscribed before the launch will get these items? or the year after?

It means that the ones who had subscribed before the launch date of February 29th 2012 will received these gifts.

It is a sort of recognition for being part of WAKFU even before its launch.

HumminaH|2014-02-27 17:09:48Weak sauce. I understand the need to reward pre-subscribers but nothing for anyone else? Why do I give a crap about this anniversary now? I don't.

At least in Warcraft they were smart enough to let everyone feel included. How hard would it have been to give everyone who "logs in" to Wakfu during the anniversary a title or achievement?

We are surely not forgetting any of you who had joined us after the launch date of WAKFU, as this double combat exp weekend is for everyone.

We also have more surprises coming for you, so stay tuned tomorrow and get prepared for the celebration. smile

They gave out Survivor insignias to people with Survivor sets that update. The sentence pretty much means "We're doing the same for Pioneer sets."

Just because you're not happy about it doesn't mean other's aren't.

I for one am excited. I never got the pioneer set due to an early bug with the gift exchange (And lack of help from SE Support) so this will be a plus!
Woo hoo! I'm really glad about the Pioneer pack. I used my gifts on my first Wakfu character, which ended up being completely useless because I screwed up my stats and at the time there wasn't any way to reset your stats.

So my pioneer flag emote, etc were all stuck on a worthless character. sad

So glad to be able to get them back again on my new main character now. biggrin 
I still don't quite get it: except for the gear changing to costume we got all those things back then, no? I mean, it's not like these are new presents, right? They're just a re-issuing of the original present...

I do believe you meant to say "2012" smile

As the post above you hinted at, a lot of players didn't get their original awards due to bugs, linking them to unusable characters, or not having inventory space.

This is something they needed to do.
so double exp means x6 exp on x3 exp chars? 0.0
GrimackReapum|2014-02-27 17:53:47I still don't quite get it: except for the gear changing to costume we got all those things back then, no? I mean, it's not like these are new presents, right? They're just a re-issuing of the original present...

Oh, I see what you mean now, my bad, hehe.

Yes and no at the same time, as we exchanged the Pioneer set and the flag to be the Pioneer Costume and using the Wave a Flag emote to display the flag.

But here comes the main difference: The original presents could only be given to one character per account and we are now offering to have them given to any characters of the accounts which you will connect yourself on or that you may create.

I hope this answer better your question. smile

Yes, haha corrected, thanks! And silly me because I was there that day, good memories. biggrin 
-.- i dont like this "only the before the 29th 2012 get a pack" event. sad
My acc needs only one month and 5 days more, but i don't get anything, like the october update.
Thats why i hate it. Other games are better at this point.
I mean "wow" double exp, that's what we all need. There aren't enough quests, challenges an items for exp. *eyeroll*
Awww I'm going to miss out most the stuff....
at least i'm going to get double exp

Justice!!
cool free things.
has tradition of WAKFU, will it maintain with the free weekend subscriptions to all? hope so smile
yaaaaaaaaaaaaay
