    TGIF! Here’s your development news round-up for the past week!

    Player Bans January 5 - January 11

    As a reminder, the following numbers are permanently frozen accounts, and don't count temporary freezes.

    FB: 281

    The majority of permanently frozen accounts are frozen for being a shared or alternate account. This is something we actively investigate, and we appreciate players reporting suspicious accounts to us.

    If you have any questions or comments about a frozen account, please direct them through Support as the Forums are not the place to discuss account freezes, because of the sensitive account information involved.

    New Limited Items!

    A new week means new Limited Items! Here’s what’s up for grabs:

    EU VAT Affecting Favor Point Purchases

    A new ruling by the EU effective on January 1 2015 requires any seller of digital goods to add VAT to purchases depending on where the purchaser resides as opposed to the seller. This means that Favor Point prices will vary for our players in Europe depending on their location. We apologize for the inconvenience and are working to get everything sorted out for our European players.

    Eldjotunn Raid Boss!

    Support Report with your favorite burrowing nocturnal mammal and Answerpreneur, Aardvark!

    Happy Weekend, everybody!

    If you wrote into Support within the past couple of weeks, you might have already spoken to the newest member of Team Kano! @SamC will be helping out with tickets while @Glitch is spending time away with her family. Try to take it easy on him, he's a little shy. ;)

    In other news, we've been watching the GearJam item design entries and are loving the stuff you crazy kids are coming up with! There's still a week left before we close off the thread for new submissions, so if you've got any burning ideas send them our way.

    A few tips to help your idea stand out:

    -Use the submission format provided! Your idea might be counted out if it's difficult to read or doesn't provide enough information.
    -Submit each item idea as a separate post - this helps us keep submissions organized and prevents entries from getting lost or glossed over
    -Don't be afraid to break new ground! Flaming swords are cool and all, but we've already got lots of them. Ideas that are surprising or unexpected will probably get more attention. :)

    Cheers,

    Aardvark

    Terrible Joke of the Week

    Here's your lame joke of the week!

    Why should you say "break a leg" before people go on stage?
    Because every play needs a cast!

    281 bans on FB? I'm at a loss for words.

    And I can't help myself, I always read Snowy Hill as Snow Hill and then I think of Il Grande Silenzio.
