I broke down my 4.4 cape, but didn't get any material

Hey there, make sure to check the amount of resources you can potentially receive when salvaging an item. For the T4.4 Lymhurst Cape, you could get - 0-1 T4.4 Cape - 0-1 Lymhurst Crest - 0-1 Treeheart - some silver So if you got no items/resources back you just got unlucky, but it's something that can definitely happen.

Additionally we change 20v20 timers to not overlap with ZvZ timers and make low level matches abit more fequent, so it is less confusing when matches ar…

I have a question about the land auction system.

Hi Hanul, I am not sure if I fully understand your question, but I'll try to give an answer. - If you buy the plot outside of the auction period (i.e. directly from the current owner) you immediately become the owner of the land. (until the next auction cycle) - If you are the owner and an auction period starts, you get the "owner's advantage". This means that your bids count double. (meaning that if you bid 500 silver, it counts as 1000 silver, for example) - If you win the auction as the curre…

The loot and fame in our reworked Hellgates should be better than comparable activities. But of course those values have been balanced with Infamy in mind. Since everyone on the test servers starts out at 0 infamy for Hellgates all rewards may seem lower than they are actually going to be at average infamy levels. Just like in Corrupted Dungeons infamy can increase your rewards by up to 100%! Thank you very much for your time testing Hellgates and giving feedback. It really helps us collecting d…

I like the way you are thinking, and we are thinking in the same-ish direction. Always keep in mind that these numbers are there to be tested for now on the test server. Basically what we are taking into consideration is the difference in the difficulty of creating a 5v5 or a 10v10 team compared to a 2v2 team. As it is quite a bit harder to create a 5v5 team and even harder to create a 10v10 team the incentive must give an edge to 5v5 and 10v10. Additionally, the skillsets are also hard to compa…

Fame API seems to have stalled again

I'm happy to announce that we're almost up to date again. Processing takes probably an hour or two until all piled up data is handled and then you should see current data again. Aggretations (this week, last week, ...) may take some more time to be updated as we don't compute them too often, but over the weekend those should be fine as well. If you see any inconsistencies in data please don't hesitate to write me here.

Updated Guild Logs

Hey everyone, we have been getting a lot of feedback over the last couple of months regarding the lack of a way to get information about leaving/joining guild members. With an upcoming update, we will be adding features to the existing Member Logs UI to make this information easily accessible. On first glance you will see that we have visually updated the Guild Logs UI (formerly Member Details UI) to make it more aesthetically pleasing and allow for displaying longer lists. This change has been …

Fame API seems to have stalled again

Just to keep you updated: We implemented a change that will reduce the amount of data coming in for processing. This should ensure that we will eventually catch up with the current state. That said it first will get worst until it get's better as we still have a lot of data to process before reaching the point where started to reduce the amount. I cannot say how long this will take since processing rates are hard to predict here.

Fame API seems to have stalled again

We do not yet have a fix ready and we also cannot say when data will be up to date again. I know that this is inconvenient for many players. What I can say is that processing of new data is happening, just in a much slower rate then needed to keep up with the data coming in.

Hi @cuatro, we have indeed some performance problems with player statistics. Rest assured no data is lost on that end. Only processing the data to be available via API is delayed. We are working on a solution for this so you can see current data as soon as possible. Besides of this data will generally be updated once per day.

Hi @Ravenar, So do I understand you correctly that you would prefer to have "130 m" there instead of "130,000,000"? I would argue that this would make the situation worse, see example: 130,450,000 = 130 m 130,000,000 = 130 m The only way to actually read out the real amount would be via a tooltip, which I would clearly argue is worse.

Hi there, thanks so much for all of your feedback, it’s as always very appreciated! Time frame And as already mentioned, will change the time frame in the next version (right now we consider 19 and 4 UTC) but we’re quite flexible here. Yes, a territory with a regular fight in these time frames has to manage to have both teams ready at that point in time. But as already described, the crystal team will be able to join their match from everywhere in the cluster. Season Points Regarding the total b…

Crystal Realm Battles - Share Your Feedback

Hi there, we're flexible regarding the Crystal Realm time windows so having them between warcamp timers is def. an option. And regarding the resource territories that have regular GvGs at that time: these Crystal Realm fights can still take place since the current owners crystal team has to be only in the cluster surrounding the territory to take part in the Crystal Battle as of right now. However the battle vault should be filled beforehand.

Apparently your temp folder is still on drive C. If you absolutely cannot free space on C, you need to change the temp folder locations. Do this at your own risk! My recommendation is to free space on C instead and leave your system settings intact. For the local temp folders, edit your system enviroment variables TMP and TEMP.

Concerns about acount safety

If I may add one more thing: the way to go is of course two-factor-authentication, since you would have to break into two devices instead of just one. We already have a light version of that - if you log in from a new device, you will have to do an email verification. Account theft is way down since we have introduced this. The only people who still get their accounts stolen are those who use the same password for Albion and their email account (or the email account is otherwise compromised).

Hi HyunMi, you are not wrong, but there is no way for us to make this secure. If you are afraid of malicious software on your machine (and that is a completely valid concern), you should never save a password in any application. Not in Albion, not in your web browser, not anywhere else. Encryption does not help here, because the game needs to be able to decrypt and send the password on login, so the encryption key needs to be stored somewhere as well and can be stolen in the same way...

Snapphanar ( Swedish guild only )

Sure you don't mean Danish guild? "A snapphane was a member of a 17th-century pro-Danish guerrilla organization that fought against the Swedes in the Second Northern and Scanian Wars." Source: [url]http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Snapphane[/url] Anyway, good luck.

What other games do Sandbox Interactive employees (and forum members) like to play?

Mostly CS GO but have started to grow tired of it yet again (mainly due to 3rd party programs ruining the scene) and have since started playing Dota 2 again.

have to download the game every day

@AbunA ok i got the impression you mean just letting the launcher download the game again after the "error waiting for xdelta tool" comes up. as i said, i had the error and it went away after a complete uninstall and new download of the webinstaller. but if u tried that already then just ignore what i said

Username Bug

is it only wrong in the chat or in the guild member list as well? is it also wrong within the world (your name label) ?
