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 Statistics – 3 Months

Saturday, July 25th, 2009

After nearly 3 months of its release, Evony has moved in to be not only the most popular MMORTS game and browser game, but possibly, the most popular online game in the world.

Where’s the proof?

Well, nothing like some good old pictures:

As you can see, although Travian and Ikariam have been up for over a year, they are not even half as large as Evony. Evony has been up for 3 months and already has an unprecedented amount of visitors. By this alone, Evony is the most popular MMORTS (massively multiplayer online real time strategy game) in the world.

Runescape (as of July 23rd, 2009) has a traffic rank of about 475. Runescape has declined slightly over the past few months. As the two pictures show, Evony surpassed Runescape in traffic.

WoW July Traffic Rank

Finally, the all-famous World of Warcraft. Since you do not play WoW on your browser, it’s hard to say whether Evony or WoW is more popular. Obviously, Runescape and Evony have more traffic, but that is mainly because you have to play on your browser.

Evony or WoW – you decide which game is the most popular.

All things considered, Evony has done quite well for the first 3 months, and it looks as if we can expect only uphill from here.
