Subject: [Platinum] Maneuver Update - Phase 1

Hey all,

The team is excited to announce an update to the CMAN, SHIELD, ARMOR, and ASCENSION systems. All four systems have been consolidated on the backend to what we call the Player System Manager. This update was done to improve development and increase consistency across the board. On the frontend, you will notice some subtle changes to INFO, LIST, and HELP. Stamina and roundtimes have been adjusted across the board and you will see a decrease overall for most maneuvers.

For a more detailed explanation of all the changes, please see the design document at

Subject: Combat/Shield Maneuver Updates

Please note that the following changes will be rolled out initially in Platinum for Beta Testing purposes, and will be rolled into all instances once Beta has concluded.

Combat and shield maneuvers no longer have a level restriction for training. In addition, maneuvers have been updated to allow usage during hard roundtime. You may use your combat momentum to follow up a combat action with a maneuver but if you are interrupted by an enemy you lose the momentum. The number of times you can use a maneuver is increased by training in Multi Opponent Combat and a new use is granted at 10, 35, 75, and 125 ranks. You will still receive the roundtime and incur an additional stamina cost at 10% + 5% per additional use. You must specify FORCERT at the end of a maneuver or toggle the flag using CMAN FORCERT, e.g., CMAN DIRTKICK KOBOLD FORCERT.
