Evony Popularity Note

Tuesday, August 18th, 2009

I’d like to make a small note that Evony has surpassed 75 servers and worlds. The amount of Evony players has grown to millions and the game grows evermore popular.

I’m sure with the update of Age 2 and various other tweaks, Evony will have tripled in size. My prediction is that in 3 months, Evony LLC will be double what it is now.

Importance of Heroes

Monday, August 3rd, 2009

So everybody talks about the importance of range, the importance of your technology levels…but what really is the most important aspect of Evony? The answer is here and now.

Heroes are the most important part of Evony. You’re about to find out why.

Heroes are the foundation of a strong civilization.

1. A hero with high politics level increases your resource production. The higher your politics, the more resources you will obtain per hour. Resources are the supplies you need to build buildings, research technology, and train troops. Undoubtedly, without a lot of resources you’re going to fall behind. +1 Heroes

A hero with high politics level decreases construction time. The higher your politics, the less time it’ll take to finish your buildings. Obviously, the quicker you get things done, the farther you’ll be ahead. +1 Heroes

2. A hero with a high attack level decreases troop training speed. The higher your attack, the faster you’ll finish your troops. As your army is the most important part of your city, this is extremely helpful. Finishing 1,000 archers in 4 hours or 24 hours makes a huge difference. +1 Heroes

A hero with a high attack level boosts your army in battle. The higher your attack, the more powerful each unit of yours is. For example: If I had 10,000 archers and you had 20,000 archers – I could win if I had a very high level hero with attack. +1 Heroes

3. A hero with a high intelligence level decreases research time. The higher your intelligence, the faster you’re complete technology researches. This is very important because when you get to researching level 10’s it starts going over 100, 200, and even 300 hours to complete. +1 Heroes

If you stop and think about it: there are few parts of Evony that are done without the assistance of heroes. You need them to train, build, and research. You need heroes to attack and defend.

Let’s move on to the future of Evony. As we saw in the sneak peek of the Age II beta server, heroes’ roles are going to be increase immensely.

From what we observed, Age 2 will have heroes who can be equipped and upgraded with armor, steeds, and weapons. In addition, we are guessing a few new attributes to heroes are probably going to be added. These include moral & strength. +1 Heroes

So think about it for a while…heroes are the essence of Evony. You need an amazing hero to be #1.

This leads into the final statement: the Holy Helm of Mars gives you a hero with base 80 of one stat or higher. The Holy Helm of Mars is the most valuable item you can get in Evony simply because of that base stat. Anyone with that huge advantage of 10-15 attack points will win. My level 200 hero has 280 attack whilst your level 200 hero has 260. I will nearly always come out on top. +1 Heroes

So…think about it.

Evony Age 2 (Age II) Beta

Wednesday, July 15th, 2009

Evony has long promised that they were working hard on an Age 2 (Age II). Finally, the time is near! Evony has opened a beta server for people to test the new Evony age.

Beta server:

  • Server: Evony Age II Beta. Server Link: beta.evony.com
  • The server’s account limit is 15,000. The registration portal will be closed once the limit is hit. Daily maintenance will clear all inactive accounts. Inactive accounts are specified as: 1) failure to login the beta server in 48 hoursyou’re your prestige is less than 10,000. The registration portal will be reopened when the clearance is finished.
  • 1,000 game cents will be delivered to every account when the maintenance is done.
  • Beta server may be closed or reopened for registration or reset players’ accounts at anytime without notice.
  • The beta server will be taken offline two weeks before the launch of the live server.

Due to this new release, I’ve added the beta server to the Evony Server Status.

There are a lot of new items in Evony Age 2 ranging from Heroes Gear & Attributes, Stratagem, Quest items.

Let’s work together to figure out the secrets of Evony Age II at the dedicated Evony wiki. Edit in what you know!
