  • Quote from VLAN: “Also, this does not just affect the forums, passwords are linked to both game accounts and website. This needs to be directed as a full DB breach, and not downplayed as a "small forum data breach". Shame. ” Hi there, we're not trying to downplay this incident in any way. However, we feel it is important to note that only users registered in the forum are affected by this breach. That number is only roughly 5% of the total number of Albion Online users. 95% of Albion Online user…

  • Quote from Cessari: “Quote from VLAN: “Quote from Wydoyolo: “1. What was the cause of the breach? 2. Do you monitor 0days? For 3rd party software. 3. Do you have cybersecurity officer at SBI or you using outsourcing services? 4. What are your plans to avoid situations like this in the future? ( Forum software should be updated immediately after CVE/hotfix release) 5. When can we expect 2FA (tools.ietf.org/html/rfc6238) commonly used solution to be implemented? ” I'm going to second this line of …

  • Quote from Cessari: “Quote from Wydoyolo: “Please implement 2FA. ” This. 2FA (Two-Factor Auth) is already used on a lot of platforms, and is (in my experience) not that intensive to implement. Having 2FA on all of your services going forward would be a huge boost in the communities trust of SBI and Albion Online as a game. EDIT: the security code message you get when you log on to an account in-game for the first time doesn't count as full 2FA. ” Hi Cessari, thanks for your feedback. We will inv…

  • Hey everyone, we did not consciously make any changes to dungeon loot. The introduction of corrupted dungeons should not make a difference, since loot from the black market is not reserved for a particular kind of content. Instead it is dropped wherever people are active (obviously scaled to the value of the activity). Please note that this question gets asked after every update we make. This is due to perception bias: out of hundreds of thousands of players, it is normal that a certain percenta…

  • Hi all, Our test to restrict the power of alliances has been running for a little over a month now, and it's time to give you an update on our findings and next steps. Test Summary In order to restrict the power of top-end alliances, we introduced a set of measures (LINK) on 26th of February. These measures have been effective in the sense that they caused the top-end alliances to split into multiple smaller groups & lone guilds. The impact on top-end alliances was similar to the impact we would…

  • Dear Albion community, Its finally time to share our plans beyond the Queen update with you! With the last update we brought a revolution to Albion’s Outland gameplay. Now we’re turning our attention to a super important, often overlooked aspect of Albion Online: solo and small group gameplay. With the next content update, we’re planning to reveal the Roads of Avalon. forum.albiononline.com/index.p…a63208114500fc76f7c6fc802 These mystical paths through the mists form an ever-shifting network of …

  • Hey everyone, we're currently investigating why some portion of the player base (seems to be mostly players connecting from the United States and Canada) is experiencing these network issues at this time. UPDATE: issues should be resolved by now

  • We're seem to currently be experiencing some network issues for a portion of our players in the United States and Canada. We're investigating the issues at this moment. UPDATE: issues should be over as of 0:45 UTC

  • Quote from fballarino: “Why do we have T6 crap in T8 maps now ? ” Tier 6 resources were re-added back into Tier 8 clusters because this was requested by many players. Do you have any concerns about this change? Quote from Robinhoodrs: “Wtf are those resource changes, jesus... it just keeps getting worse. Pissed I wasted so much LP on T8 tree gathering now. ” This feedback is directly based on the feedback collected from various gathering players who were unhappy about T7/T8 resources only spawni…

  • Hi there, please be aware that the total value of items has not changed- the items you get will trade for roughly the same value on the market. That said, here's our reasons for this change: Before the patch, many players complained, that they would sometimes find high value chests which contained no items. This is because these chests were set up to drop only high value items, and if there were no high value items available on the Black Market, where all Albion Loot items come from, then these …

  • Quote from Doowie: “I know my presents has been missed on the forums and photoshopping Robin's hair, but don't worry... things shall return to normal very soon! ” Welcome back! Looking forward to your future creativity, I guess

  • This announcement has been replaced with an updated announcement: https://forum.albiononline.com/index.php/Thread/124568-Adjustment-to-the-Alliance-Cap-Test-on-February-26th/ Thread closed.

  • Dear players, Last week we announced a test we wanted to run on limiting Alliance size on February 26th. Then, on Friday, information leaked regarding changes to this test we were considering. We deeply regret our approach to the communication and handling of this matter. We should have taken more time to evaluate the expected outcome of this test before making an announcement. For this, we would like to apologize. The reason we're now announcing an adjustment to the test is that a hard cap on a…

  • Quote: “ he probably doesn't care because its their choice lol. they just want to avoid blame/backlash, ” Actually we think it makes a huge difference why and how a player quits playing with an Alliance. If we simply restrict the number of players in an Alliance, we create a single "super group", which will consist of the most active, combat focused players. This group will then attempt to retain as much territory as possible, likely succeeding in holding large chunks of land. Everyone else who …

  • 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…

  • Hey everyone, thanks for all the feedback on this topic, so far it seems very clear. We'll leave the poll open for a while to collect additional data and think through our options. At the beginning of next week we'll let you know how we'll proceed on this topic. Sincerely, Robin 'Eltharyon' Henkys Game Director

  • Quote from faintrespite: “The entire center circle is on the EU reset timer. Is NA that much of a joke to SBI? ” Quote from Neef: “It seems there are more EU timers then NA and whats with the center being totally EU? Game does seem to run alot better so great job on that end. ” I can't confirm that the center is entirely EU. If you are referring to the region's surrounding the Avalon storm, there are regions of all timezones represented (Battle times from 12:00 - 5:00 UTC). 4 of those battle tim…
