Crystal League - Upcoming Additional Time Slots

Good day everyone, The Crystal League has been running on both the Staging and Live Servers for some time now.

We want to give you the chance to play more than one game each day, and still retain the benefits of overlapping time slots, which should keep high-end teams away from the lower levels. Therefore we are adding 3 more t…

Dev Talk: The New Outlands

Quote from agonyclutch: “all extra times zone? You are getting rid of the bz gvg so those teams won't care about that now lol ” Hey there, note that the frequency of each time zone is different, those at more popular times (such as 21:00 UTC) are far more common than those at, say, 12:00 UTC. In general, how often a time zone is used on the map depends on the usual in-game activity at that time of the day. This means that if a certain time has twice as many players online, it will get twice the …

Hey there, thanks for all the feedback. A more general point: some of you have said that the planned changes will affect new players too strongly. We do not think that's the case, for the following reasons: - The biggest in-game expense for new players by far is the premium status. Measured in silver, at the price of almost 4400 silver per Gold that we saw before we announced the planned changes, that is 11m silver per month. Right now, purely as a result of the announcement of the planned chang…

UPDATED 4.10.2019, see end of post! Hello Albion Online Community, Many of you will have noticed that the price of Gold in-game (measured in silver) has drastically increased over the past months. This makes it extremely hard to sustain premium status with in-game currency and is a massive problem for a significant number of players and hence, for the game as a whole. Our analysis shows that the Gold price increase is due to substantial silver inflation. Why is that? Since Albion’s release more …

YoloMouse 3rd party mouse cursor allowed?

Hey guys, we do not see a problem with this kind of software. It only changes the mouse cursor on a driver level and does not interfere with the game client in any way. I don't see an unfair advantage either. Your request of customizable mouse cursors has been noted David

Improvements - Added Hotkey to toggle AutoRun on and off (Default: NumLock). Autorun stops with any new (non-UI) input. - Added no-show protection to GvG fights: attacks on home territories and watchtowers now cost 2,000,000 silver (formerly 100,000), and attacks on cities now cost 10,000,000 silver. 90% of this amount is returned if the attacker manages to score at least 1 point.

We're close to get the lag situation under control. But it's getting delayed over and over. This is frustrating for us - and even more for you. As we stated in the previous posts - the problem is that we have to deal with third parties. The estimations we gave you - were honest - but even if all of us would be working day and night (which many of us do at the moment) we cannot speed it up any further. Often we just have to wait for the third party to reply and prepare configurations. Also please…

Lag issues (Update 8/27/17 15:05 PM)

We're still working hard on a solution. It's still the issue with the third party service that makes it hard for us to deal with it faster. (Which we stated earlier this week.) We're giving our best to implement a solution before the weekend. It involves a lot of communication with third parties that we can only speed up to certain degree. We just have to ask for your patience and understanding. We're doing everything in our power. Sorry for all the inconvenience and trouble!!!

Lag issues (Update 8/27/17 15:05 PM)

We know how annoying the lag is for you folks. But the issue is caused due to an external service that we have to use. This means no matter how hard we push it, it's not only up to us. We're continuously working on improving the situation but it will take a few days until we have a final solution. We're sorry for all the deaths to players and mobs that were caused by lags. Be careful in the OW and don't use your top gear in HGs if you care to loose it too much.

Keyboard glitch after inviting someone

There is a known bug with the invitation ui (e.g. for guild/party). if you type a name and press "Enter" to submit your invitation (instead of clicking "OK") the keyboard gets disabled for people that have window animations disabled in the options.

REQEUST: Albion Launcher changes!

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. See computerhope.com/issues/ch000549.htm For the system temp folders see answers.microsoft.com/en-us/wi…e1-404c-aa27-a76c0b450818

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).

Concerns about acount safety

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... As an ex…

Constant disconnects and lag

Hi, The bad news first: I cannot comment on individual disconnects. This does not seem be a general problem; we have multiple machines running Albion 24/7 and almost never see any disconnects. The likely reasons for disconnects are your internet provider (e.g. 24-hour-disconnect), your Wifi (lots of wireless networds in the building = unstable) etc. This may not be a very satifying answer, but - if you get a lot of disconnects, the problem is somewhere on "your" side, it's not our server.

Ultrawide Resolution Support? 3440x1440

Hi everyone, the problem with ultra-wide resolutions is that it gives you a broader field of view. In a competitive game like Albion Online this would give you an unfair advantage. It is essentially like a hardware-camera-hack and that is why we do not support it. The game server will BTW limit the objects you can actually see, so even if you get the game to work on 3 screens you will not actually see mobs or other players on the 2 additional screens. David
