[Known Issue] Wrong Castle Scoring Times

Hey everyone, With our recent update (Percival Patch 3), we announced that Castle and Castle Outpost scoring times have been moved from 19:00 to 20:00 UTC. However, there has been an issue and the change has not yet been deployed. The scoring times are currently still at 19:00 UTC, despite the in-game user interface showing 20:00 UTC. The new Castle and Castle Outpost scoring times (20:00 UTC) will go into effect with the coming Reset day on August 31st. We apologize for the mistake and thank yo…

[Answered] Adventurer's Challenge Mount Stealth Item Value Change?

Quote from Azlen: “Hey, I would like some clarification because I believe this is a bug. Previously, all Adventurer's Challenge mounts had an item value of 0, meaning they were free to repair. I assumed this was a benefit of them being these special mounts. Insert my quest to acquire all of them. This made the prospect of collecting them very valuable to me for my time in the blue/yellow zones. However I just noticed that now they all have very high item values, making them cost on repairs.

Buy order not working properly

Hey there, when you put up a buy order, it will incorporate the quality filter. Though if no item for the set price is found on the sought quality, it will look for items with the same price for a better quality, but never for a lesser quality. It does not go above your set price, so I'm not sure how you lost silver in this case. If you want to give me more specific details to your issue I'll gladly check it though.

The difference with this change is that previously, if you had the winning bid, you actually did not have to pay your full bid as a price, instead, you only paid what the second highest bidder had plus 1 silver.

Resource Guardian Respawn Timer | Bugged or Intentional? | NOT ASPECTS

First: The current state is intentional. Mobs have two values: min respawn and max respawn. If a mob is defeated it rolls a value between those two to determine the time when a new mob should be spawned. Those values haven't been changed for Guardians since a long time ago. But what changed then? Well, there was an issue with random respawn times that are larger than 24h. Those weren't saved and a respawn was scheduled for the average of those values. For Guardians this is 48h. This was fixed a …

The value to determine how much a mob can take before it dies is called Effective Hit Points or short EHP. Since we don't have any automatic mitigation mechanics in Albion (e.g. dodge, parry) EHP can be computed simply by dividing their HP with their damage reduction. So for example a mob with 1000 HP and 60% damage reduction from armor would have 2500 EHP (1000 / (1 - 0.6)). Before this change we used a factor to increase the HP of mobs as much as the reaver bonus increased the players damage. …

Quote from Alkarine: “Namely, I am curious if the every cluster is its own server? This should make load-balancing very trivial i.e. low-populated clusters could use cheaper hardware, or even take work off of other compute servers. ” Not every cluster is its own physical server (many clusters have such low activity that a single machine can handle a large number of them), but in the most extreme case one cluster can be handled by one server. Unfortunately there is no way to scale further with ha…

Dear players, We have just deployed a hotfix to the server after we had been made aware of a potential gameplay exploit with regards to Scrolls of Repair. Every time a player is knocked down or killed, a certain percentage of that players item value drops as silver. The amount dropped is significantly lower than the repair cost of the gear. However, as Scrolls of Repair fix a players gear without any extra cost, a player could in theory generate added value by repeatedly getting knocked down on …

Game Launcher Crashes [SOLVED]

Nice that this workaround fixes it but it is really strange, normally that should not be a problem (must be an issue under win7). Thanks for the hint, we will investigate.

Game Launcher Crashes [SOLVED]

Do you have a version of Qt installed on your PC? If yes try to uninstall it, it could interfere with the used and shipped one with the launcher. If it's the case we will work on a fix for the launcher.

Test Server Download Speeds any Indication, you have problems for Monday.

Hey guys, don't worry. The test server is... just a small, humble test server. There is no CDN and no serious bandwidth. We are surprised and overwhelmed by the "sudden" interest in it. Rest assures that the live server is an entirely different beast. And yes, you will be able to download the live client over the weekend already. David

[Feedback Wanted!] New Hector Dungeons

Quote from Blodvaerd: “I have only played Undead and Keepers (tiers IV and V) but it would be nice if there was all factions available at each tier (IV - VIII) ” Hi @Blodvaerd ! Thank you for asking! We've decided to separate Factions by Tiers to create a sense of progression from tier to tier. Currently there're no plans to change that. But we're trying to bring more variety to the mobs inside the same tier to compensate that.

Quote from Mathieu94P: “Quote from Foximmilian: “Thank you guys, again, for your time and feedback! We're really grateful for this. ” Hi @Foximmilian In view of the answers, many players would like more diversity in the dungeons. Knowing that many dungeon cards are already drawn (beta cards 1 & beta 2), do you plan to diversify the dungeons of third-party equivalent? Today all the T5, T6 or T7 dungeons are copied pasted from their pair and this lack of diversity. ” Hi @Mathieu94P We know the iss…

Is it allowed to scan your internet trafic and pick up logs

Hey guys, first of all thank you for asking before actually doing anything. Our position is quite simple. As long as you just look and analyze we are ok with it. The moment you modify or manipulate something or somehow interfere with our services we will react (e.g. perma-ban, take legal action, whatever). As some of you have already pointed out, using WireShark or silimar tools to analyze network traffic is undetectable from our end and we therefore do not consider it an offense. The network pa…

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. This will be fixed in an upcoming patch. A workaround for now is to click in the chat window, this re-enables the keyboard. I could not reproduce this error with pressing the "OK" button though.

Can't install on drive other than C:/

Right now you'll either need to make 4GB room on C: or configure your windows to put the temp folders on D: (you can google how to do this or let a friend help you). We are trying to find a better solution in the very near future.

REQEUST: Albion Launcher changes!

Well, this causes a bit of a discussion between me and Korn. We'll see what we can do about this. The solution will be something automatic such as using the install drive if the temp folder is full, so no fiddling with ini files.

MadDave

24.01.2017 16:34 UTC

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

Happy to report that the OSX version is finally online and working. (Linux version is still in the pipeline but will be available eventually.) We are very sorry for this problem.

What Bercilak said. Especially the books by Abercrombie is something everyone should read, the stand alone books after the first law trilogy most of all.

Once I finish that I will be off to read 'The Autumn Republic', by Brian McClellan.

The destiny board is something that allows you to grow as a character, it just is different progression system than Tibia. When I was younger I played a lot of Tibia and I still play it for a week every year due to nostalgia, the world has a bit of the same feel to it as you had when you first left Rook.
