    Hey all,

    I have decided to start this news thread for random updates that don’t warrant a full post to themselves but still need to be posted. Hopefully this helps bring down the number of pinned threads! 

    The first bit of news is that it has been decided to increase the runtime for the architect for the rest of the year to 24h as this was so appreciated by players. 

    Happy Christmas!

    Brave warriors,

    As some of you might have already realized, the emperor is in more and more of a festive mood. Themed events all over the Empire and attractive offers for everyone to participate in the festivities.

    But not only will the emperor celebrate the coming days with his family and royal court, your Community team is following suit. Our Community Managers, as well as our Board team, will have some days off to enjoy the holiday season. But this does not mean there is no one here taking care of you throughout the rest of the year. As mentioned before, your Community team will spend some time with their families and of course, you belong to it as the Empire family! So, even during the festive period, there will be someone here for you but less frequently than usual. Your whole Community Team will be back at the beginning of January, starting a new ride into an exciting new adventure in 2018.

    Of course, not only the Community but also our Customer Support team will be back with full force in 2018. Which also means, the processing of tickets by our remaining agents will be slowed down and occasionally delayed throughout the rest of 2017. Apologies for the circumstances caused by this and thank you for your understanding.

    But let's get back to the good news now! Since we are one huge Empire family, we want to surprise you with a respective holiday gift which will contain the following:

    • 80 Veteran Flame bearers
    • 80 Veteran Composite Bowmen
    • 80 Deathly horrors
    • 80 Demon horrors
    • 5 Fast Travel Feathers
    • 1 VIP point (for tracking reasons)

    On top of that, you will get a Ruby Doubler, which can be used to double the value of your next purchase!

    Both will be sent out on December 24th, 10 am CET and will be claimable until December 26th, 10 am CET.

    Please accept this package as an appreciation for this really exciting Empire Year 2017, full of ups and downs and you were always part of it. Without you this year would not have been such a great adventure for all of us! We can't wait for 2018...amazing things are coming...ROOOOAR!

    Thank you, happy holidays and a happy new year to all of you!

    Your Empire Family

    Hey all,

    Just want to clarify that this ruby doubler WILL stack with your LTPE doubler. It’s only LTPE doublers that do not stack.

    Lords and Ladies Due to the harsh winter and some minor time differences in Nomads ending before the Quest,  the Royal Quest 6/9 will be marked completed for everyone in the land!

    Hey guys,

    Some of you might have already noticed an issue that prevents you from recruiting. Due to the game thinking that you have a build item in your barracks, even though you do not.

    Luckily there is an easy workaround for this issue: simply manually type in the usual max amount that you are able to recruit at once, which is usually 80 units.

    We are already working on a proper fix for this which will also solve another build item issue where you can't remove the item from your building at all. We are aiming for a release today, latest next week, depending on the different approval processes at Google, Apple, Amazon and Samsung, but due to a longer approval process at Apple, we expect a release for iOS rather on Monday.

    Once it is available you can download it in your preferred app store and start recruiting as usual again! Also, if you are on iOS and can't see the latest version, restarting the device might help in these cases.

    More info will follow soon.

    Your Empire Family

    Last weeks bugfix update is now available on iTunes and Amazon!

    If you can't see our latest update in iTunes due to a delayed distribution, please try the following steps to force the update on your device:

    1. If you are on iOS 11, you can refresh your update screen by simply swiping it down. 
    2. If you are on iOS 10, you can try to restart your device to make the update appear on your update screen.
    3. Reinstalling the game without restarting the phone can help as well. (If you restart the phone after you uninstalled the game, all progress is lost and you have to use your credentials to load your saved account again)
    4. If none of the above helped, we kindly ask you to wait some minutes/hours until the update is distributed to your device by Apple.
    Your Empire Family

    Hey all,

    There will be a bug fix today at some point between 11:30am and 2:30pm CET. The expected down time is around 40 minutes. 

    The royal quest will be moved to start at around 2pm CET as a result. 

  • SeleneSelene Posts: 1,561
    Bugfix is over! During this bugfix we fixed the next bug: 
    "Attack of the Shapeshifters: Losing a Shapeshifter attack doubles your surviving tools"

    Enjoy the rest of the event!

    Morning all,

    Due to human error the E4K servers were not reachable for a short time this morning, but they should be back now. 

    Apologies for any inconvenience caused by this short downtime.

    Hey guys,

    As mentioned last Friday already, we want to make sure everyone is aware of this issue. So we created another post about this:

    We just found out that the rewards in the HARD MODE of the current Ice Championship are not correct. The following gems are wrongly shown as rewards:

    • Crystal branch
    • Crystal leaf
    • Crystal seed
    • Crystal blossom
    Instead, the following castellan gems should be shown
    • Snow globe
    • Frozen pyramid
    • Ice cube
    • Glacial charm
    Please do not contact our support regarding this! We are aware of this and are investigating this issue, to assure that everyone who has qualified for these rewards will get the correct ones at the end of the current Ice Championship!

    Everyone who qualified for the respective rewards will get them AFTER the LTPE ended. You have to do nothing, the system will credit the correct rewards automatically to your accounts.

    Apologies for the inconvenience.

    Your Empire Family

    The second set of results are now out in the Server vs Server thread! Have a look and get ready to receive your intermediate rewards...

    We will have a downtime today on the ARAB 1 Server only starting 14:00 CET spanning up to 2 hours (but maybe less). This is due to technical maintenance and preparations for the global update next week.
  • SeleneSelene Posts: 1,561
    Hey guys,

    As you probably know, there was an error with the rewards in 'hard mode' in the latest Ice Championship. To be precise: the incorrect Gems were credited. On Monday, between 12 pm - 3 pm CET we will grant the correct rewards to accounts of everyone who earned enough points. 

    ATTENTION: Please make sure there is enough free space in your gem inventory during that time. Gems will not be credited if your storage is full - and our Customer Service team will be unable to provide you with gems which are not credited this way.

    Thank you for your understanding.
  • AlpinoloAlpinolo Posts: 3,787
    Hey guys,

    We started around 2 pm CET with the gem compensation today. Unfortunately, not everyone has received the respective gem rewards so far. We are currently investigating these cases to assure that every affected player gets the rewards they earned during the Ice Championship Hard Mode. Once we have more info on how we proceed from here, we let you know. 

    Please do not contact our customer support regarding this.

    Apologies for the circumstances

    Your Empire Family

    We got some news for you! The missing gems will be added this Wednesday, throughout that day. Please make sure you have enough room in your inventory, otherwise these gems will get lost! :)

    Dear Community,

    Due to an issue with the Nomad/Khan event, we recently had to deactivate the Nomad vendors, as well as the related Nomad tool shops until further notice.

    Therefore, it's not possible to buy any Nomad/Khan tools and you'll not be able to hand-in Nomad/Khan tablets until the end of the event.

    Best regards,

    Your Empire Team
