In preparation for the upcoming beta, we have ordered & migrated our data over to the new servers we'll be using for beta.
As a result, you may encounter some unintended bugs with the website.
In all likelihood they'll be dealt with shortly, however - just in case we happen to miss them - we'd very much appreciate it if you could submit a bug report on our forums so that we're made aware of them.
Thanks for your patience, and we're looking forward to seeing you all here at the beta launch! :-)
Apex KO's beta will be launched on the 24th of April, more detailed information down below and on the forums!

We've made the decision to turn off registration for open alpha (most existing accounts still have access), as at this stage we're fairly done with alpha testing.
We still have some work to do, as you can tell from our issue tracker, but stay tuned for our beta announcement, which will come after we've finally finished up with the remaining issues.
Thanks for all of your help thus far in improving the server, we really appreciate it.
We'll be transitioning into the second stage of our alpha testing, which will open on the 5th of December 2014 11 AM CEST (GMT +1).
For this stage we'll be making the following changes:
- - Players start at level 83 (with all skills unlocked)
- - Players will start with a variety of items for their class
- - Players will start with 720k NP
- - Upgrading has been disabled (except for reverse unlocking)
During this stage we'd mostly like to get your feedback on PvP and PvE damage.
Furthermore, as the alpha is now open to everyone, be sure to hustle your friends for some PKing to have some great fun!
We hope to see you all in theâ€¦
