“Evony Community,

Today we experienced a critical downtime of over 3.5 hours with all servers and the main website being unavailable and then some issues with the forums. We understand that this has made many of our great players frustrated and disappointed. We’re disappointed too.

Evony is a small independent online game developer and publisher, a small business which has grown exponentially due to the great community of players we have. Today’s downtime was caused by an error from our hosting partner, The Planet. This has placed us in a very difficult situation in trying to address and fix the errors; however within a few hours we were able to get all servers back online.

As we’re a small company, when problems like this arise, it affects us very deeply. We’d like to take this opportunity though to try and make something good out of it by offering a token of goodwill to all players. We are releasing to all players a Compensation Pack consisting of 10 Amulets and 100 cents, FREE. While we cannot make up for the issue that The Planet has caused, we do hope you accept our apologies and gift and still continue enjoying the game.

Please allow us 3 business days to send out this pack to all accounts. Accounts must have been created before today in order to obtain the pack. You will be able to claim the Compensation Pack in the left hand corner in the game.

Best Regards,

Evony Team”

Thanks Evony, it’s really appreciated!

Well, I think it’s time for me to give you guys the summary of Evony’s development in the last couple weeks.

– Evony has opened several new servers for old and new players to play on. Since my last development post, Evony has released Server 6, Server 7, Server 8, and Server 9.

– Evony has selected two new forum moderators to help manage the forum boards: Cyhort & Kitiara.

– Evony has officially announced that they will be “pruning” inactive players on all the servers.

  • Accounts with less than 100 prestige will be flagged inactive after 3 days with no login.
  • Accounts with between 100 and 1000 prestige will be flagged inactive after 7 days with no login.
  • Accounts with more than 1000 prestige are subject to being flagged inactive after 60 days with no login. We are not currently marking these accounts inactive, but we may do so in the future without further notice.
  • In addition, accounts which have only one city, and that city has high grievance with 0 loyalty will be flagged as inactive after 5 days with no login.
  • The only exceptions are accounts which have purchased Evony Cents. These accounts will never be flagged as inactive.
  • All accounts which are flagged as inactive will be deleted during the daily maintenance period. If you do not want your account to be deleted, log in once in awhile!

– Evony has made some patches to improve your game-play:

  • When a beacon tower detects enemy troops marching to one of your cities, the Reports icon will flash in red.
  • When there are finished quests, the Quest icon will flash in green.
  • Coordinates can now be removed from Coordinate List.
  • Mail and Reports systems have been optimized.
  • On the payment screen, your account email address is automatically filled in for new users, to help prevent errors processing.

– Evony made a contest called “Queen of Evony”. The goal of the contest is to give the community some fun and to reward women who are dedicated to Evony. The winner and the winner’s alliance will receive in-game rewards.

– With the release of the “Queen of Evony”, many men have been hopeful about a “King of Evony” contest. Will there be a contest for who is the greatest King? Who knows *wink*…..

That’s all for now people. Be sure to check back everyday for new guides and news!
