Far Cry 6 solves puzzles around Vaas fan theory but raises many new questions



Far Cry 6 solves puzzles around Vaas fan theory but raises many new questions

Far Cry 6 is here and it answers a few questions, but also asks many new ones at the same time. For example, it should now be finally clear that Diego will not later become Vaas from Far Cry 3. At least that’s what fans had suspected for a long time. But a post-credit scene from Far Cry 6 finally makes it clear that it can’t be. But that doesn’t necessarily make it better, it makes it a little more confusing. We look at what all of this could mean.

Far Cry 6 has a post-credits scene and you can hear that in it

There is nothing to see: please go on, there is nothing to see here. Joking aside, we can hear something about that. In the scene that plays out after the credits for Far Cry 6, we can hear Juan Cortez talking to a smuggler. It’s about selling Viviro. Juan wants to supply the smuggler with the miracle cure.

Big Vaas comeback? The piquant detail of this scene: The smuggler is none other than Vaas Montenegro, the charismatic, unpleasant, and cult villain from Far Cry 3. He doesn’t tell anything that would be really exciting, but at least he appears and mentions also Diego, the son of Far Cry 6 villain Anton Castillo.

The fan theory around Vaas and Diego cannot be correct

Theory overturned: First of all, it is noticeable that this should be a clear rejection of the fan theory, which caused a sensation a few months ago. They assumed that Far Cry 6 will play before the events of Far Cry 3 and that Diego will develop into Vaas. Which of course can’t be when Vaas is talking about Diego like that here.

What does that mean? The question remains, of course, what this is all about and how the games relate to each other. Because actually, Vaas dies in the course of the plot of Far Cry 3 . Maybe that’s just not true and he survived the story after all, or Far Cry 6 is set shortly before the events of Far Cry 3. Or else, and now it’s getting really complicated, it means something completely different.

When Vaas returns for Far Cry 7 or something else, things get really messy

Alternative timelines, anone? The events of the different Far Cry games can no longer really be related to each other. At least the new, modern Far Cry 6 setting doesn’t really fit together with the events of Far Cry 5 and the subsequent, post-apocalyptic New Dawn. Either both exist side by side or are somehow separate from each other.

That would also enable about everything Ubisoft could do with the legendary Far Cry 3 villain Vaas. If nothing has to be logically related to anything else anyway, it doesn’t matter whether Vaas actually died or what theoretically should have happened before which other part.

Apparently, only one thing is certain: Far Cry 6 is teasing some kind of return from Vaas in this scene after the credits. However, this should have nothing to do with the DLCs of the Season Pass, in which we not only meet Vaas but also Pagan Min and Joseph Seed – because they are supposed to function as a kind of video game within the world of FC6. So Vaas may return for his own DLC or even in Far Cry 7.


Lst Ark: Servers are shutting down today to allow more fans to play



Lost Ark: Tier 1 Island Route

On February 11th the new MMORPG Lost Ark was released in its Free2Play version for all people who just want to try it. That’s a lot though, which is why the game is still struggling with server issues. That should change now.

Update 8:05 a.m.: The servers are now down.

When will the servers shut down? As announced by Amazon via the Lost Ark official website, the servers will go offline this morning, that is, on February 13, at 8 a.m. GMT.

The downtime affects all European servers equally and you will not be able to log into the game in the meantime.

How long will they stay offline? The maintenance work is planned for about 3 hours. So if all goes well, you’ll be able to return to the world of Arkesia at 11 a.m.

We’ll keep you up to date in the live ticker when the servers return and if there will be any delays again.

Lost Ark’s last scheduled server maintenance was scheduled for 4 hours, but ended up lasting over 10 hours, leading to some negative reviews on Steam.

Why are the servers going down? Since Lost Ark was released, the new MMORPG has been struggling with long queues and server problems. At the prime time on February 12, more than 1.3 million people played the action game at the same time.

This also meant that some servers had to be completely closed to new players. Especially the server Asta, on which many German players gather, is affected by long queues.

Sometimes the fans have to wait up to 6 hours just to log in. Incidentally, this only works if you already have a character on the Asta server. New players were completely denied access until the evening hours of February 12th.

To address this situation, Amazon is working with Smilegate to increase server capacity. At this point, however, they are not telling us exactly how this is supposed to work.

Are the queues gone then? No, probably not. In the blog post, the publishers emphasize that they only want to create the basic framework for further updates and more server capacities during the downtime.

We, therefore, do not assume that you will be able to continue gambling directly at 11 a.m. without queues, even if that would be desirable.

Lost Ark: An exact time when the servers will go online



Lost Ark: Tier 2 Island Route

Today at 6 p.m. the Lost Ark servers should (re)open to all players after the scheduled maintenance. But nothing will come of the official Lost Ark Launch! The launch is delayed due to “deployment issues”.

An exact time when the servers will go online again has not yet been announced. “We hope that this problem will be fixed in a few hours,” the announcement simply says.

We’ll keep you posted on updates here!

Unfortunately, the launch has been delayed due to deployment issues. We hope this will be fixed in a few hours.

Your patience is appreciated and we will update you soon.

Restart Lost Ark Client

We have received important information from the Community Team. Waiting in the server screen doesn’t seem to help. The server list does not appear there automatically. So a reboot is required.

Waiting at the server screen won’t help, as it will require a fresh launch of the client as far as I’m aware.

You can read our guide for Lost Ark here.

New pioneer package with server change in Lost Ark



Lost Ark guide: List of runes and their effects

Lost Ark has been better received than many thought. Even Amazon did not expect this rush. And so there were long queues on some servers, as was the case with New World. Since a real server change is not possible, many players simply created a new character on a new server. However, some of these players have already redeemed their pioneer package on the first server and thus used it up unnecessarily.

As Amazon has now announced, we will get an additional set of exclusive items on the new server. These items are bound to the character and thus cannot be traded. They can soon be redeemed on every new server.

During the Head Start period for Lost Ark, a massive number of heroes arrived in Arkesia. While we are thrilled to have so many players joining us, we also recognize that this has brought about large queues on our more popular servers, leading to a less than ideal experience for these players.

In an effort to improve the player experience for those who have faced queues, we will be taking several steps to put preventative measures in place ahead of our full launch tomorrow morning, in addition to addressing some of the outstanding issues surrounding Founder’s Pack claims.

Founder’s Pack Redemptions

Players have let us know one of the reasons they are reluctant to switch to lower population servers is because many of them have already redeemed their Founder’s Packs on another server. To help combat this and make exploring new servers a more reasonable choice, we will be granting ALL Founder’s Pack purchasers that redeem their pack by 12 PM PT (8 PM UTC) on Monday, February 14th with an extra set of the exclusive items from the Founder’s Pack they redeemed (e.g., the Founder’s Exclusive Pet and Founder’s Title from the Bronze pack; see full list below) as well as some additional Royal Crystals for Silver, Gold, and Platinum Pack purchasers. These items will not be tradeable, and will be delivered to a player’s Product Inventory so they can be claimed on a new server. Your original Founder’s Pack will not be affected by this, and will remain on the initial server where you redeemed it (or in your Product Inventory, if you have not yet redeemed it).

We are currently working to get these item grants ready to go, and will update players when they are ready to claim — these will be claimable on any new server you choose, so in the meantime we encourage you to find a perfect server to call home.

*If the Founder’s Title or Founder’s Exclusive Wallpaper are used on the same Roster where a pack has already been redeemed, you will not be able to use these items.

Please note that this is a one-time grant, and we do not have plans to continue to make additional grants of items available to players in the future. For example, there will be Starter Packs available for purchase at full launch tomorrow (more details to come), and we highly recommend only redeeming them once you settle into your permanent home server.
