Maintenance Downtime - 19.07.2011 (04:00 - 11:00 ST)

Dear players, Tomorrow, Tuesday July 19th, we will be performing some maintenance work on the Holy War servers and implementing an update between 4:00 a.m. and 11:00 a.m. (server time). The servers will be unavailable at that time. The update will include the promised changes to the market. Important Note: 1.

Holy Safety Time, Batman!

Dear Players, As some of you surely noticed, several accounts in a small handful of worlds could not be attacked yesterday at one point. The explanation is that those players were safe due to their participation in the last Holy Battle. The problem can be traced back to a bug arising from the change in time of the Holy Battles introduced in June. In the course of shifting Holy Battles from taking place regulary on Thursdays, to happening on Sundays, a false entry for the corresponding safety tim...

Why does everyone hate Tibs?

By the way, bigger phil, the role playing you refer to (yikes!) would violate other rules (in addition to one's sense of decency) and not be tolerated. Role-playing in the forum as a Scot is hardly comparable (except, admittedly, in some circles around England).

Why does everyone hate Tibs?

Ladies and gentlemen, Just to bring this issue to a close, the decision was reached, as daviemarks indicated, that posts in "dialect" could be made in the forum, where it was less disruptive and the environment more flexible, but that posts in the shoutbox were to be kept to more standard English. It is also not appreciated when players bring provocative posts against the game's super-moderator, to whose instructions and decisions all players are to defer. Tibbs - you knew the decision that had ...

Old Fight Script for Battles

Dear Players, It has become apparent in the last few weeks that the changes which were made to the fight script have had a positive effect on PvP attacks and arena fights, but that the majority of you, the players, would like to see the old fight script when it comes to battles.

Premium Ticket For More Plunders

I think DM has made some sound points here. There are possible strategic uses which you may want to avail yourself of, and for these occasions the option is there. If you don't find an advantage in this option, then do not use it. It is, after all, just another option which you are free to use when you find it helpful, and free to leave as an unused option when you don't need it. That's what options are.

Plunder Time

Dear Players, With the last patch, we introduced a new plunder-time extension feature for premium tickets. Several of you have expressed a concern that the balance of the game will be upset by these plunder-tickets.

For this reason, we've decided to reduce the amount of extra plunder-time you get for one redeemed ticket to 30 minutes. This change will come into effect next Mo...

Questionable merc practices

SoG made the most significant point in this thread, I would say, and yet it went without response. Additionally, the point that players are responsible for hiring their own sitters, providing them instructions, or leaving them the executive authority. Find a player you trust. Find a player untrust-worthy. These decisions, human interactions, develpments and intrigues are part of the game as a living experience. It makes no sense to have the game micro-managed, to reiterate SoG.

It doesn't alter anything. A battle is scheduled for 12 hours later and the fall-back in time does not affect that. If you are invested in something which is non-American, perhaps you should look into it with some care and interest - I realise Americans expect the world to pander to them while they accept no responsibility for opening their windows and taking a look at what's beyond its borders, but that approach comes with the consequences which attach to it.

Very nice, that is the civil and grounded way in which one makes a suggestion which will be taken seriously.
