Post by Aegon » Mar 10th 2021 20:16

Lightning Server will restart at Fri Mar 12 13:00:00 2021.
Armageddon is scheduled to begin at Fri Apr 9 01:00:00 2021.

Changes from previous set

Changes:
  • We have made several changes to our database and server code to increase performance during high-load scenarios such as Armageddon. Attacking AI players in armageddon should no longer cause server instability.
  • AI players will no longer receive the Divine Balance Buff.
  • New Units:
  • Spell: Battle Chant - Now gives Goblins every turn. Spell upkeep raised to 350 MP/turn.
  • Guild name (and shortname) restrictions added:
    • Minimum two characters
    • Leading and trailing whitespace is removed
    • Only alphanumerical characters and a limited set of special characters permitted
      • Currently:a-z A-Z 0-9 ! ? - _ * = + % $ € and space; this is subject to tweaks
  • The game version is now displayed at the bottom of the server login screen.
  • Bug Fix: Sun Most Favor status will now correctly add 100 Red Dragons.
  • Bug Fix: A feature that give a 5% flat boost to the chances of getting a hero from the Gods was still enabled. It has now been properly disabled.
  • Bug Fix: A feature that halved the chance of god disfavor was still enabled. It has now been properly disabled.
