  • 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

  • Thanks for the feedback, I've added it to the list of topics for our designers to look at.

  • 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…

  • Hey everyone, just a quick update before the weekend on a few issues that many of you are concerned about after the first couple of days that the Queen update has been live. First: Dungeon rewards, in particular Elite Dungeon rewards. We will be addressing two urgent issues in an upcoming patch next week: 1. Elite Dungeon Fame and Loot rewards feel underpowered - we will be significantly boosting fame and loot from these dungeons to match our balancing expectations. Our goal for this was that fa…

  • Quote from Guilefulwolf: “Quote from Eltharyon: “Basically all Outland regions now behave how Mercia's region's behaved before: The Tier of region equates to the maximum Tier of fish you can catch in that region (same as resources and NPCs). The common fish you can catch should always be equal to the region's Tier or up to two Tiers below. The rare fish are any of that region's biome's rare fish up to the region Tier. ” Im not sure what u mean with "how Mercia´s region behaved before". For the t…

  • Hey everyone, with the Queen update we've standardized how fishing works so you can reliably understand what Tier of fishing is available. The Tier of region equates to the maximum Tier of fish you can catch in that region (same as resources and NPCs). The common fish you can catch should always be equal to the region's Tier or up to two Tiers below. The rare fish are any of that region's biome's rare fish up to the region Tier. The number of regions available for each Tier of fishing should be …

  • Dear Albion players, As announced here, we will be increasing the price for premium time on January 29 at 10:00 UTC. Price increases are always a difficult topic. We would like to give you our reasons for the price change: Prices for the premium status were originally set in 2015. In the years that have passed since then, general business expenses have increased a lot. More importantly, Albion Online is now a much more polished a feature-rich game than what it was back then or even when it was f…

    Hello everyone, I'd like to apologize for the bad experience many of you had- we ran the event with the best of intentions, we wanted to give this era of Albion a cool conclusion, but in the end we made two crucial mistakes here: 1. We underestimated the number of players that would show up for the event (due to Albion's strong player numbers recently). 2. We were not able to dedicate as many development resources as necessary to the event as the entire team was busy with the Queen update proper…

  • Hello everyone, the battle for Caerleon just finished and while many were busy fighting and enjoying themselves, a lot of you could not partake and did not enjoy the event at all. I'd like to apologize for the bad experience many of you had- we ran the event with the best of intentions, we wanted to give this era of Albion a cool conclusion, but in the end we made two crucial mistakes here: 1. We underestimated the number of players that would show up for the event (due to Albion's strong player…

  • Quote from Torthur: “@Eltharyon @Retroman Can you guys confirm that IF a hideout IS placeable in a location on the test server, that location will work when queen goes live? ” There are currently no known differences between the version on the test server and the final Queen version. Of course a last minute bugfix could always change this, but I'm currently unaware of any world changes still happening. HOWEVER: there is a random resource distribution in the game world (changing daily) AND other …

  • Quote from Fred_the_Barbarian: “Also, it seems like level 1 hideouts are cheap. At current Caerleon prices, a hideout costs 4.16 million silver with 0% resource return. Just to attack it costs approximately 1.25 million silver. That means just for the right to show up to 2 timers you have to pay 30% of the hideout's value. ” That was an oversight in the guide- in fact you need the resources + 10 million silver to craft the Hideout kit. Guide has been updated.

  • Hello everyone, With Hideouts we’re introducing a really exciting new sandbox feature to Albion Online! You’ve probably heard that Hideouts are “open world bases” for your guild - but you may still have questions about how *exactly* they work. Well, this document tries to answer that question in detail. This is not meant to be an introduction to Hideouts, but rather a guide to the details which may be important for enterprising guild leaders and players make plans for their own Hideouts after th…

    Quote from Sinatra.SUN: “1. Banks. I thought there was no banks in the territories themselves besides a battlevault. If that is the case then the devs missed the additional tab feature where you currently can buy bank space as you can today - which i might add is a huge difference compared to not having bank space. ” This is actually a bug. There really should only be Battle Vaults and NO other storage possibilities (no personal OR guild bank). We'll fix this. Thanks a lot for the overall feedba…

  • A lot of you reached out to us about the upcoming changes to Tier 7 and Tier 8 resources in Queen. For those of you who've missed it: In Queen, we've brought Tier 7 and Tier 8 more in line with other resources. They spawn more frequently, and there's a lot more of these resource nodes, but they no longer spawn fully charged with 20+ charges - instead they spawn with a single resource in them and can only stack up a few. We saw a number of advantages in this, and many of you agreed, but there wer…

  • Hey, thanks for the question! There will definitely be a form of spawn protection, simply to ensure that players are protected while loading into the cluster. However, we're still experimenting with how long this protection will last and whether it ends when you leave the proximity of the Hideout.
