What is Evony?

Sunday, August 2nd, 2009

Well, Hods Realm has been around for a few months now and we’ve never actually addressed…What is Evony?

Evony is a completely free MMORTS (massively multiplayer online browser-based strategy game) originally developed by UMGE LLC. Evony LLC now develops Evony – Free Forever.

A player starts with a civilian ranking and a level one town hall with 5,000 each of each resource (gold, food, lumber, stone, iron) and a population of 50 people. Evony has quests to guide new players so they do not get stuck at the beginning of the game. Of course, there are also great Evony guides sites such as Hods Realm to help you.

In the game, when a player logs out, the game continues while they are not around (just like most Real Time Strategy games). For seven days after registering, a player is given protection so they have time to grasp the game’s concepts and begin to achieve its goals.

Prestige
is a measure of a player’s rank in the game. It is the game’s way of determining who is the “best”. Players gain prestige by following the Evony quests, building or upgrading structures and successfully attacking valleys or (NPC/Other players) cities.

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.

UMGE

UMGE stands for Universal Multiplayer Game Entertainment. UMGE is a Chinese based company that develops online multiplayer games. China is notably the world’s most successful multiplayer game market. Thanks to the demanding gamers’ quick feedback, China has been the perfect place to make innovative game developers, which in turn breeds revolutionary design and game play.

Founded by an elite group of avid mainland China game developers, UMGE grows organically through developing engaging, albeit relatively low budget, web-based browser MMOG games: Evony and Leuric.

Evony is multiplayer role playing browser game, and the background is set in medieval Europe. Players develop their own cities by training troops, researching technologies, consolidating fortification systems, and so on. Players climb up the nobility ladder by storming the continent. There are eight human forces: Worker, Warrior, Scout, Pikeman, Swordsman, Cavalry and Cataphract; and four machinery forces: Transporter, Ballista, Battering Ram and Catapult. Besides, the technologies family adds additional tweaks to the gameplay. They are all critical to winning. More than five thousand words of well-researched history of the fortifications and the progress of technology put the gameplay into context.

Leuric is a multiplayer role playing Flash browser game, in which members of the two factions, Viking and Atlantian fight against each other in the ultimate battle for supremacy. Players can choose to adventure the vast lands of Leuric or fight against other players in the battle arena. There are over 600 types of weapons and items to choose from, and they are all customizable to the character skills, making each character unique.

In addition, UMGE is investing substantially in developing Surge of Valor, a Window client-application-based MMOG. Surge of Valor takes a player into a world of fantasy to experience adventure and to fight monsters. There are four basic character classes: Warrior, Mage, Archer and Cleric join hands to defend Continent Aldema against the invasion of demons and evil forces. With new contents and features being introduced regularly, Surge of Valor is going to be an A-list MMORPG title.
