Dragon Empires newsletter - 5 December 2003

Christmas is coming! Run for the hills! Well, since you can't escape it at least you can start having a merry Dragon Empires Christmas with Exca's Advent Calendar. This calendar is packed with a new Dragon Empires picture every day and is well worth examining regularly. Later this month we will also be giving you some great Dragon Empires Christmas treats so watch your newsletters closely.

We need to remind everyone to make sure their beta profile has the sound card field up to date. If your profile isn't complete (please put down 'unknown' rather than leave a question blank!) then you will not be eligible for any beta testing! So go double-check that your sound card details are up to date and mail petert@codemasters.com if you have any problems.

Customer Support / Game master job!
We know a lot of people are interested in working on an MMORPG, well, here's your chance! We are looking for a full-time member of staff to be a Customer Support / Game Master for Dragon Empires. The job is located on site at Southam, Warwickshire in the UK. More information can be found here.

Feature of the Week - Game Support
As much as gameplay features are important so are the help systems and tools we give players. After all, a game is never fun if you spend hours waiting for a problem to be fixed! In Dragon Empires we will have customer support staff who will be available 24 hours a day and they will be equipped to solve your problems. Full time game masters will be backed up by a team of volunteers and all will be involved in customer support, events and making the game experience as enjoyable and stress free for players as possible.
