Login Changes - Bookmarks Redirected[]

01-17-2011

As some of you have noticed today we changed the login procedure slightly. You will no longer be able to autolink directly to a server using a book mark, you will need to go through evony.com to login to the game at this time.

TO LOGOUT:

  1. Close all Evony windows and go to www.evony.com and click Play.
  2. When your account comes up, click "Logout" at the right.

TO LOGIN:

  1. go to ww.evony.com and click play
  2. Login either via e-mail or facebook connect.
  3. For Age I servers, scroll down to the bottom where it says Age I Servers.
  4. For Age II servers, scroll down to where it says age II servers

(Please be aware that just a Facebook login will not get you access to Age1 servers, you need to have an email login or a linked email to your Facebook account)

So why did we do this? It came to our attention that users were using a different login process than what we intended, while unintentional, was a violation of the terms of use and rather than logging in from www.evony.com, users were logging into servers directly through a URL. While all Age II servers did not allow this type of access, Age I servers did and so we have corrected that. We have had one main access point for users to login from to obtain access to all servers and create accounts, and we want to ensure that this route is used rather than other methods.

Age II World

  • Fixed: Players can no longer use experience gain items on heroes at their max level.

Because of the unexpected maintenance on the server, we want to make it up to our players on this server by giving a buff.

SS60 Maintenance Complete[]

12-15-2010

The delay in reports has been resolved, you may experience some brief delays over the next few hours as the system comes back into balance, but there should be little if no delay in reports at this time. We will be leaving zero cost upkeep on for another 24 hour period to help make up for the issues. We are aware that the Holiday promo items offer the same benefit, but we will be extending this to all players for this time period.

Just a note on the rollbacks. Due to an exploit we were forced to roll the server back over a brief time period. We apologize but all actions taken during that time period are gone. Any items you had before the rollback will be still be present on your account. Items and cities acquired during this time period will have reset to before the rollback period.

As for people that purchased items during this window, your items and cents have been restored from your purchase. We apologize for the delay.

Thank you for your continued understanding on these issues.

Super Server Maintenance Update[]

12-14-2010

As part of our ongoing attempts to resolve the issues on some of our Super Servers, a bug has been identified that could cause an exploit. In order to rectify this situation, we will be rolling back the data for servers ss56, ss57 and ss60 to today's maintenance time.

We sincerely apologize for the inconvenience and hope to have the servers back up as soon as possible.

SS60 Maintenance[]

12-13-2010

We've taken ss60 offline for maintenance to address issues with NPCs and population. While the server is offline we're also implementing some performance upgrades on the server hardware. This means the maintenance will take slightly longer, and we'll update this post once the server is back online or we have more news.
