    Just minor, here's the changelog for this update:

    - Summer Scavenger Event has ended. We hope you enjoyed it, and if you didn't, we'll be taking criticism for next year's Summer mini-event (note that the overall concept will be the same).

    - 44 songs have been added to the jukebox. Due to some constraints with the menu interface, 12 older songs have been temporarily removed but will return in the future. You can find the list in a spoiler at the bottom of this post.

    - The Hunters Boost Road has been changed to the Phantasmal World series in Episode 2.

    - Timers have been re-added to the New Mop-Up Operation quests in multiplayer.

    Note about the Anniversary Event

    When August rolls around, we'll be kicking off with Ephinea's 2nd Anniversary Event (branded last year as the Summer Event). This event will be similar to last year, but there are some things you should note.

    A new set of badges will be added for this event (2nd Anniversary Badges), and only they will be usable in the updated shop quest. The current Summer Badges will not be usable.

    The updated shop will see some small changes:

    - The Scavenger will be adjusted to have lower chances for 55/60H, and cost will be increased for red weapons.
    - The Hunter will have a different weapon set, and most notably no longer offer items at Tier 3 (Black King Bar, Snow Queen, Magical Piece)
    - Wedding Dress, Dress Plate and Liberta Kit will not be obtainable.

    There will also be some other minor changes, but these are the main things people may want to capitalise on with their remaining badges. If you still hope for any of these items at their current costs, make sure you use your badges now.

    If you do not use your badges in time for the 2nd Anniversary, don't worry, as you'll be able to trade your 1st Anniversary badges up to 2nd Anniversary badges, but at a reduced rate (most likely 3 badges for 1, but this is not gospel).

    We hope you're looking forward to the Anniversary Event!

    Apologies for those who have to download the jukebox music again. The size of the OGG files were a bit too big and wanted to shrink them down and reduce quality so that people don't have to download as much or use up as much hard drive space. (Went from 434MB to 113MB for the recently uploaded music. Also, a few of the OGGs that had abnormally low volume were amplified.)

    I'll be updating the installer on the website shortly with an updated installer that has all the new music and any other patches since the last update as well.

    You guys continue to do an amazing job for this server. You might not think about it every moment, but you provide a lot of people with the favorite part of their day. People look forward to coming home from work or school to enjoy what you provide. That's a big deal. I wish I could do more than just say "thanks."

    (Well, I try to help with good ideas but I'm not very smart...)

    Is there a badge drop rate ect, from last year to get an idea how this works? Is it similar to Easter? I looked in the old thread from last summer but couldn't find that info, and I wasn't around then

    Correct, we're gonna start introducing yearly items so that players can't just hoard for the next event.

    Trade-in rate will most likely be 3 badges for 1, as said in the OP, I highly doubt this will change. Item list will be up when the event starts.
