Recent server issue announcement!

Oct 21,2014

Dear players,
Regarding the recent server issues that presented itself as massive lag and unable to log into servers, the development team has come to a realization that this is a DDoS attack by an unknown source. 

DDoS or distributed denial-of-service attack is an attempt to make a machine or network resource unavailable to its intended users (Quoted from Wikipedia). 

In our case, this is to our player base. 

Please rest assured that DDoS attack does NOT lead to leak of confidential personal information of our players. It is simply bombarding our servers with useless information in order to block access (pardon me for using lay terms for those who better understands the nature of this attack).


Our development team is working on a solution to this. And please be patient as they are working furiously to resolve the issue completely.

Here is a link on Wikipedia for more information regarding DDoS:

In regards to the latest connection issues, we are sorry for the inconvenience caused within the game, and will offer 300,000 Silver and 100,000 Wisdom to all players as compensation. We will also be sending 1,000,000 Silver, 100,000 Wisdom, 2 Holy iron, 2 random schema and a Lvl.3 gem bag to players affected during the Alliance War.
