bug or intended? please explain how it works (video)

Hey there, the additional stats you get from your Destiny Board Specs are only applied once you equip an item. If you didn't have any mastery modifier for the Hunter's Hood, then the additional HP would not change, either. Additional note: I just realized that I'm conditioned to read "bug" in the title and then assume automatically that it's a bug I gotta check out so I wonder why I can't mark it like I can in the bug section.^^

Avalonian Map bug

Hey there, do you remember in which zones it failed? Remember that Avalonian Dungeons can only spawn in the Outlands, not on the Royal Continent. And eventually, since there are not many T7 clusters close to each other and the spawn points for the avalonian dungeons are very limited, it had no free spot to spawn the map dungeon left.

Hey there, in the past weeks, there has been a lot of discussion about the smart cluster queue feature introduced with Queen. With this post, we'd like to give an overview of the situation and share with you the steps that we consider taking. What is the goal of the cluster queue? There are hard tech limits to how many players can fight in a single zone. These tech limits are not subject to hardware, meaning that no matter how many servers we use, they can't be exceeded without causing massive i…

Why are Mill taxes so high in every city?

The food building tax % calculation is currently inconsistent with the normal crafting buildings. This means that in order to break even on costs, a higher tax % is needed on food buildings. They 'look' more expensive, in reality, they are not. Fixing this disparity is part of our backlog.

Make Taxing silver bags a option for guilds

Limiting Alliances to Guild size - Test starting February 26th

Dear players, On January 20th, we released Queen, our biggest update to date. It has also been our most successful. Since its release, player numbers have grown by more than 40%, and for the first time since our free to play launch, we have recently surpassed 350,000 monthly active players. At the core of the update was the new Outlands continent alongside significant changes to territory mechanics. Guilds can now establish their own bases - called hideouts - in the Outlands and territory conque…

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.

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...

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
