So yesterday there was an announcement that Fury Stance will be getting an R-ATK nerf. This happened because players discovered certain combinations of classes and skills which would have ultimately affected the game's balance in the future. The Fury Stance nerf coming up in the next maintenance will only affect the R-ATK modifiers. This was very embarrassing for the development team, but they hope you understand that such changes have to occur to keep the game's balance. So as an apology they will once again distribute an item that resets all skill trees.

At the Nico Nico Livestream, Sakai announced the Sympathy Concert CD will be released in September. It comes with a set of promotional items that were released at the event. As for those highly popular musical instruments, they're going to be available in a "FUN Shop" that's coming in a future update.
As for today's porori (which previously I would have thought to be a new field) is actually another Team Room Base. This is the Forest Base, which gives you a taste of some basic platforming.
