[PW] Leode (leode): Question: Discoteka (aintshefancy): When will the housing be implemented?

[PW] Leode (leode): Question: TheOni (theonisoul): Would it be possible for a voice system imbeded in the game? (eg. needs a mic)

[PW] Leode (leode): Question: TheOni (theonisoul): Will there ever be a US or EU server, as the servers now are good, but I lag sometimes. :)
Answer: Cubinet Interactive holds the license for Malaysia, Thailand, Singapore and Vietnam. Our license for Malaysia/Singapore has no IP block. There are plans to implement a server in Malaysia with in-game events geared more towards EU time players. But this is not the same as an EU server hosted in the EU.
[PW] Pieces (chinfui): Question: Shakul (ericsiah): will there be an option for guilds or groups to engane in PVP besides TW and arenas? (example will be Battlegrounds in WOW)
Answer: We will advice players go for arenas besides TW / PVP, where players are able to form in party and fight with each other

[PW] Leode (leode): Question: Seveneyes (rockfall): 2 questions into one: How is the extra bandwidth for the AOL lines coming along? Also how much progress has been made translating and sorting out the new patch etc??
Answer: I recently posted on our official forums that the extra bandwidth from AIMS (not AOL) will be arriving within a week. So the lag problems will be gone very very soon. As for the new patch, the 100MB patch will likely take a month. Translation will be completed before that, but there is the testing phase as well. Because of the long wait time, we have requested a smaller patch from China, which they have agreed to. It is possible we will see this small patch that does not add content (just Item Mall) wihtin 2 weeks.
[PW] Pieces (chinfui): Question: lfireflyl: Will There Any More Maps too add on ?

Answer: All patches will be uploaded to current server after complete the testing / de-bugging
[PW] Leode (leode): Question: spenserdavis: how is the housing system going to work?
Answer: That is a rather big question! The system is still under development, but from initial details, players get to buy up plots of land on an instamced map. There are 4 announced 'Maps' of land and players get to select the plots they want based on their level and reputaion. Once they obtain those plots of land they can modify the area to their liking and design thier dreamhouse. There is a 'Fung Shui' like system built in and depending on how you design your house and mold the land, various small bonuses can be obtained.
[PW] Pieces (chinfui): Question: Tres_Iqus (instaliberation1989): PW is a very well balanced game. Is everything being done to make sure new races/skills maintain or even better the balance?

[PW] Leode (leode): Question: Deathblow1031 (deathblow1031): What steps are being taken to reduce server lag?
Answer: we have the AIMS lines in place. Currently these lines are overtaxxed but we have already orderd more bandwidth. So the internet lag solution is just a week away. Our gameservers are currently not under any strain, so there is no 'server lag' per se.
[PW] Arius (eldavius): Question: DragonsTemper (inarihaku): What are you going to do to keep low level players hooked?
Answer: We're currently brainstorming on great reward giving events, like the Major PVP/Guild PVP types, where players could reap the benefits by being part of the community. We'll also implementing the Spotlight section, in honour of the awesomeness achievements our gamers have accomplished. "Help us, help you!!!" =]
[PW] Pieces (chinfui): Question: Servant (sarv5): Why aren't the players able to attack level 1 Territory while they can bid on them ?
Answer: Supposing the level 1 Territory land, players are unable bid on them. But appologize that having the critical bug on that, where this issue already being reported to China and will fix it as soon as possible
[PW] Leode (leode): Question: TheOni (theonisoul): Have there been any plans for wars between the races?
Answer: The plot in Perfect World revolves around the races trying to unite against the forces of Rancor. As such, while it is possible for players to create race specific guilds and then go to war with one another, the game itself does not divide the races. United we stand and all that...
[PW] Pieces (chinfui): Question: Zezix (x2swordplay): Will you add a Dye option for armor? So people can have unique armor
Answer: Good idea, we will get this comment feedback to our developer and hopefully we got a COLOURFUL Perfect World
[PW] Leode (leode): Question: BaXXteR (tgbaxxter): The Auction Hall shows items and equipment above Level 130. Fansites like “asiapworld.com” only got information until Level 105, which seems to be the actual maximum level. Will there be a levelcap-raise in the future? When will it come?
Answer: Yes, the levelcap will certainly be raised in the future. Perfect World has a lot of expansion left in it! But the extra level cap increase will take a while to come since there is still the matter of housing and new races/classes to add!

They have not been activated yet because there are not enough high levels yet.
