Greetings and welcome to the December 2010 Release Notes. With a shortened development cycle this month, the team has focused on addressing many of the issues that arose during our November update. We also want to take this opportunity to thank all of our players for making this another great year for Asheron's Call! Without our incredible players, none of us would have the privilege of working on this incredible game. Thank you all very much, have a great Holiday season and see you all in the New Year with the January update!
