Additional changes:

  • Food consumption overview:
    Economic overview will be optimized according to players' feedback. This dialogue will show the final result of the difference between food production and food consumption. If the number is negative, it would mean the food consumption in your castle is higher than your food production.
    Example, 

  • We will make technical changes to the system of daily glory and gallantry point decay in order to avoid double deduction of points, which could previously occur in some edge cases.

  • Royal quest adjustments:
    • Gift trader: Some texts were a bit misplaced. 
    • Quest book: "The Queen's Defense" quest is duplicated in the quest book.
    • Quest book: Ice kingdom logo was shown in the desert kingdom quest reward.
    • Equipment set bonus: Set bonuses of Fortunes of the desert sands, Apparatus of the headsman summoning, and Uniform of the nutcracker warrior sets were capped even if they should not. 
    • Equipment: Uniform of the nutcracker warrior equipment set tooltip caused Flash error.

You can discuss this update HERE!

The plan is to release the update on 12th of December 2017. But as always, do not take this as guaranteed, be aware of possible delays due to unforeseen circumstances.


Server move: 

IMPORTANT!

With the release of this update we will also move all our servers. This will give us more flexibility in order to act faster and more efficiently in the event of performance or hardware issues in the future.

This move is planned in the early morning (CET) and will end in the afternoon (CET), so expect the downtime to last approximately 6-8 hours. Please, prepare yourself before the move and try to avoid using the long term point event booster or any other boosters during this period of time, as we will not be able to compensate losses incurred during this period.

All servers are affected!

During the downtime it won't be possible to log in or play the game, but food consumption will be frozen for the entire length of the downtime. Please use this early announcement to prepare yourself and don't forget to inform your alliance members about it!

Due to the complex nature of the maintenance, we would like to be sure that the move will go smoothly. As a result we have rescheduled our event plan as following:
 Nomad Invasion & Khan's Revenge will end on 12th of December, instead of 13th. 
 War of the Bloodcrows will start on 12th after the move is over (12th-16th of December)
 The Battle for Berimond will run twice in December between 12th-15th of December and between 29th of December-2nd of January.

To compensate the loss of a day in the Khan's revenge event, we will hold the Khan's revenge again at the end of the month, instead of Nomad Invasion (NO Khan's Revenge):
 Nomad Invasion & Khan's Revenge (23th-28th of December)


We will also provide a small compensation package for all servers due to the running War of the Bloodcrows event and some ongoing attacks. Unfortunately, we cannot switch off the attacks during this period of time, but we also want to check this event to be sure you can experience our game, as well as this event, with no further problems. The package is tailored to compensate the losses due to these attacks and looks as follows:

Level 10-70+

500 Veteran Flamebearer
500 Veteran Composite Bowman
20000 hidden food
1 VIP point (for tracking reasons)

This package will be deployed once the servers are online and you will have 24 hours from then on to grab it. Bearing in mind the purpose of this package, our customer support won't compensate further for issues regarding this topic.

Apologies for the inconvenience!

Your Empire Family
