Radar Suspensions

Posted by John Thornhill | 2015 Aug 20 17:09 -0400 GMT

We have recently instituted several methods to help us track down various hacks in-game, perhaps the most important of which is radar. We have not and will not ever take cheating lightly. Your feedback over the months about hacking has been well-received and this announcement can be considered proof that these types of actions will not be tolerated.

Today we have issued 1-day suspensions to several hundred accounts found to be using radar. Going forward, any accounts confirmed as violating the Rules of Conduct in this way will be subject to long-term suspension and permanent account termination. All accounts actioned today have been sent an email to the address on file.

If you receive this email, and you do not use these programs, check the name of the suspended account carefully before you panic. If you sold or traded your account to another player, it’s possible that they didn’t change the contact email information.

If you did not receive this email, but your account has been suspended, you should update the email address on the account ASAP.

If it’s your account, and you received the email, please uninstall your third party programs immediately.

A Scouting Report...

Posted by Development | 2015 Jun 23 12:08 -0400 GMT

Location: Jotunheim (Date Unknown)

I believe in the Gods. How can you not? But I never thought I’d see one. There was no mistaking Ymir as soon as he stepped from the portal. Although most Jotun look alike, Ymir is ancient and much larger. He brought with him a horde of frost and stone giants. They gained a foothold in Vanern Swamp.

Live Server Maintenance

Posted by John Thornhill | 2015 Mar 03 17:46 -0500 GMT

UPDATE2 7:30 PM EST: All servers are now open. Notes are listed below.
UPDATE: The servers should be back up by 7:30 PM EST / 12:30 AM GMT

Greetings all,

The Live servers will be coming down immediately to address a server crash. We'll update this post here once we have a solid estimate on the servers returning.

  • Casual Groups can no longer have more than one minotaur relic carrier in the group at a time. This fixes the server crash.
  • Horse speed should once again function at the intended velocity: Speed 5.
