Evony WN1

Wednesday, September 2nd, 2009

Evony WN1 is an event where Worlds 1, 2, 3, 4, and 5 have all been merged into one. Yes, this means that all the different players, heroes, cities, etc, have been placed together to fight until death.

There have been many bugs as this is the first time this has been done. The administration is working hard to fix these issues. If you discover one, don’t hesitate to report it.

On August 23rd, 2009:

“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!

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.

Massive Evony Armies

Thursday, August 6th, 2009

What would an army of Cataphracts do? What would happen if I sent 100,000 to attack my enemy?

What would 75,000 battering rams do? I’d love to see my enemy’s face!

So..what would happen if you had an unreal amount of a powerful unit? Would you completely dominate the game?

The simple answer is – no.

The battles in Evony are in a circle of sorts. Different units are very effective against other certain units, fairly powerful against other units, and terrible versus others.

Let’s give an example:

I have 100,000 Cataphracts and you have 100,000 pikemen.

Well, just because Cataphracts are powerful that doesn’t mean I would be victorious. Although pikemen are considered the weaker military unit, they would win this battle. Why? Pikemen have an advantage over all cavalry units because of their longer range (spears/pikes extended). The pikemen spears would annihilate the horsemen in seconds.

Hods Realm will be posting a complete guide to Military Tactics later on. Please keep your eyes perked because this is going to be a huge future release.

Evony Racism

Sunday, August 2nd, 2009

Racism is always a problem in this world. For Evony, it’s no exception. It’s fairly regular for someone to blurt out a racial slur or insult in the World Chat.

Quite honestly – there’s no need for this kind of behavior. There’s no difference between an African-American President and a French businessman. There’s no difference between a male CEO and a female CEO.

It’s exactly the same all over the world – don’t bring racism to Evony. If you do, you’re only asking for a ban and you lose all respect from your fellow Evony players.

Evony World Chat

Saturday, August 1st, 2009

In order to talk to other players in the World Chat, you have to own items called “speakers”. So what happens when you run out of speakers? Well, you cannot talk in the World Chat. You can still talk in your Alliance Chat and whisper other players for free.

Of course, you can always get more speakers. There are several ways to go about obtaining them.

You can purchase speakers for real life money.

You can win speakers off the Amulet Wheel.

You can obtain speakers by winning them as a battle reward.

For a couple months now, there have been complaints about having to “pay” to talk in the World Chat. Let’s think about this logically. If anyone could talk unlimited times for free, then the World Chat would constantly be spammed and no doubt advertisements. It would turn into an unidentifiable jumble of spam where nobody could communicate with each other. The point of the World Chat would be defeated.

Let me add that you don’t need to buy speakers. You can easily win them off the wheel or in battle. In addition, I’m sure that you’ll want to talk to your alliance members and your friends a lot more than some random person on the World Chat.

So stop being negative – think about it sensibly and positively.

Evony Ads

Friday, July 10th, 2009

Evony ads are one of the hot topics of discussion. Evony players were not very happy with the explicit ads that were being displayed a month ago, but now they found a new ad which they say is “downright outrageous”. The Evony players do not want to be embarrassed by the ads, or even look at the ads. The users say that this is a cheap marketing style.

Truth be told, the majority of Evony members do not have a problem with the ads, especially since the administration has declared they are “only shown on adult-material sites anyways”. Therefore, the children are not affected which is the main conflict.

I’m sure we haven’t heard the last of the ads, and I’m sure there will always be disagreements. In the end, we must trust the company to do what they think is best for Evony.

May News

Sunday, May 24th, 2009

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!
