    Spring has arrived in the Great Empire and that means it’s time for a spring clean Easter Sale! We have some great events, including Nature’s Guardian, starting today too.

    The March Hare is visiting!


    As the spring flowers wake up and the March Hare comes to visit we have got a great sale for you! From today until the 14.04. you’ll be able to avail of some rare deals throughout the Great Empire. The traders and hawkers have got decorations, build items and appearance items on offer for a very limited time. 

    Make sure you don’t miss out, the sale starts today.

    The March Hare’s Hideout


    The March Hare is a rare visitor in the Great Empire. Once a year he frolics through the meadows and fields. From today until 15.04. you’ll be able to find its Hideout. It’s claimable for 24 hours after your first login as long as you’ve reached level 6.

    Nature’s Guardian


    There is a strange buzz in the towns and villages of the Great Empire today. The Nature’s Guardian is here and he wants you to retrieve his bees. The hives have been emptied in the spring sunshine and so you’ll have to raid your enemies to gather the bees together.

    Moonlit Night

    All praise the great and glorious King Eric, for he has proclaimed that the Apprentice Blacksmith be recalled to our fair Empire immediately. The Apprentice has sworn a solemn oath to the Lords and Ladies of the kingdom, that they can count upon his services and that he henceforth will do his utmost to provide all with whatever they need. For a price of course: He asks only that the Apprentice Tokens which were once lost to his guild be returned. Prepare your castle for today’s event: Spring Nights Festival.

    The Bloodcrows are here and the Scavenger King wants to pick over the bones of our great Kingdom. Repugnant and nasty warriors already slink through our lands stealing and scavenging as they go. Will not someone stand against the Invaders, will you not stand against them? Let our glorious banners be raised, let our swords and shields glint in the sunshine. Let us bring forth the foul warriors of the Scavenger King from their shadows, revealed in their corrupt and loathsome forms. Let them be cast out of our Kingdom. Rally Lords and Ladies for today we go to war.

    A bold attack, a knife to the heart of our Kingdom! Foreign Lord and Ladies have overrun our outer defences and claimed castles in our Kingdom. These contemptible Invaders mean to usurp from us the lands of our ancestors, the fields we have tilled for generations, and the hard won advances against the wilderness. Will you allow this, will you stand by as your people are subjugated and made to swear allegiance to another? Rise with your King, for Eric will lead the vanguard. Where will you be ranked amongst his subjects, at the front of the charge? Now is the time to stand, we march for glory and honour!

    The Shapeshifters return!

    The Rise of the Shapeshifters has had some changes so prepare your armies to march on the Outer Realms!

    Suffer not the Shapeshifter to Live!

    Changes have been made to the Rise of the Shapeshifters event. Firstly you’ll be able purchase tonics from the event shop, this won’t have a cap so you don’t have to attack the Monoliths unless you want to. You’ll also won’t need tonics to attack other players meaning there will be more opportunity to raise your attack tier. 

    Tonics will now be used to boost your attacks and to attack players lower in the rankingsThe final big change is that defending players will lose an attack tier when they are defeated. So make sure to prepare your defences well!

    Perfidy and Ruin

    It’s not just the Outer Realms that are under threat! The Shapeshifters have continued their advance into the Great Empire and only you can stop them. Raise your defences, muster your troops and prepare for war. For today the Shapeshifters are amongst us and only together can we defeat them.

    A royal invitation to the grand melee

    "My lords and ladies, 

    And everyone else whose not of royal blood: Today, you’ll find yourselves equals! 
    This grandest of grand melees and its contest of strength, shan’t consider any difference by birthright, but rather a difference in strength, valor, and skill. 

    Yet this grand melee will also put your camaraderie on trial, hence it has been foretold, that the power of a unified force shall always prevail against the strife of the lone wolves. So gather your banners and call to arms your most trusted allies, so that the best alliance may emerge as the glorious winner of this tourney

    But beware: deserters shall be punished and will, therefore, be shorn of the privilege of participating in this tournament. 

    Fare thee well and may your sword be guided by dedication and mastery.

    His majesties herald held in the highest esteem, 

    Henry La-Voicé"

    Samurai Banner

    Our noble and stalwart ally Shogun Takemura has sent you an urgent request. The arrogant general Akechi has once again raised his banners to summon the elite Samurai warriors to him with whom he plans to invade our fair lands. Takemura will hold him off for as long as possible but we must raise our own banners and ride to his aid. Today we will respond to Akechi’s threats with force.

    Sorry for the inconvenience.

    Lords and ladies,

    Okay more clarification! The update will be going through in ten minutes. There won't be an associated downtime. This will come tomorrow. Therefore iOS players will experience some difficulties in playing until we have the downtime.
    There diffculties include, but aren't limited to:
    • Event boosters will not be usuable
    • New research will not be possible

  • LagerthaLagertha Posts: 973
    Update boosters not available for iOS has been narrowed down to Shapeshifter boosters only.  With that said, none consumed or used either.

    The fog of war vanishes for a moment and opens a path to the kingdom of Berimond.
    A realm where the lion clashes with the bear. Where the “Gold Lion” of house Gerbrandt, Leopold III and the “Bear of Berimond”, Grimbert of the house of Ursidae call their bannermen to the battle for supremacy. Now the last hope for the Kingdom of Berimond rests on your shoulders, as you have to choose which apex predator you’ll support in their conquest. But choose wisely, since your enemy will fight you relentlessly until the bitter end.

  • LagerthaLagertha Posts: 973

    We will be freezing food on Empire: Four Kingdoms until 10:00 CEST tomorrow. This will allow us some time to fix issues that have appeared in the game. Please be patient while we put the fixes in place. Currently, we do not plan to deploy any events but this may change. We will keep you informed!

    Lords and Ladies,
    While we are still investigating the problem that occurred with today's Berimond Kingdom event we do have some news for you. Firstly we won't be restarting the event. Secondly we will refund the entry fees to you account early next week. Finally we will compensate the efforts in the event to players affected by this. We are still hammering out the details but we will let you know as soon as these are finalised.Thank you very much for your patience today. We hope you have a great weekend!

    The arcane Astral Seers have predicted that at dawn on the fourth day the rising sun shall illuminate the pass through which our army may enter the Outer Realms. That dawn is upon us Brave Warriors, the way has been revealed at last and it is time to march forth. Muster your armies for today a vast new land is unveiled and King Eric has ordered that we conquer it in his name. The Outer Realms has begun.

    Dear Lords and Ladies, 

    As most of you know, the Berimond event had to be terminated prematurely as a consequence of unforeseen technical issues. 

    We, of course, considered that at the moment of termination a multitude of players had already joined the event. So that is why we will grant the following content to our players that participated: 
    • End rewards to the eligible players 
    • 2000 silver coins for the Top 100 
    • 1000 silver coins for everyone below Top 100 
    Players who also purchased starter castles with rubies will receive the respective rubies back.  

    We expect that this will be done over the course of the next two days (probably starting tomorrow). 

    We apologize once again for these unexpected technical issues that we had and thank you very much for your patience. 

    Best regards,

    Your Empire Family Team

    Riding with all haste your Guardian Lysimakos has returned in the dead of night with dire tidings. His far ranging scouts have discovered a threat to our Kingdom. Once again the fierce warriors of the Khan have taken the path of war and they are bearing down on the Kingdoms upon the fastest of steeds. He has warned the outlying settlements and outposts that war will come to our fair lands today. A vicious and deadly war but also the chance for glory and honor! Our wise leader King Eric will reward the greatest of his subjects, those who rise to the challenge of this invasion and crush the impotent invaders.

    Lords and Ladies, 

    As you aware we are experiencing some technical difficulties with the Nomad/Kahn event.  GG is aware and looking into this for both Empire and EK4.

    Thank you for your patience and I'll update as soon as I have more to share.

    Lords and Ladies,
    As you are well aware we have an issue with the Nomads event that started on the 28th of April. We so far have not been able to fix an issue whereby the Nomad defenses reset after each attack. We are still working on this and hope to have a fix in place soon.
    In the meantime to boost your progress in the event, we are providing some bonus troops (and some food)!
    • 1000 Veteran Flamebearers
    • 1000 Veteran composite Bowmen
    • 3 hours of food
    This will be claimable in the game shortly and be available for 24 hours only.

    Regards,

    Your Empire Team
