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

    Player Bans November 9 - November 15

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

    None this week :(

    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:


    New Location: Salish Sea

    After setting sail on the Midgard Ocean your travels have lead you west, to the mythical Salish Sea!


    Available after level 14,300. Embark on a new adventure here!

    Adventures and Empire available now! Challenge, Crafting and Boss coming soon!

    Weekday Calendar November 23!

    Don’t be a turkey! Get ready for the Weekday Day Calendar, starting November 23 at 10 am Pacific and running until November 27 at 10 pm Pacific.


    Separate Tab for Raid Bosses!

    During the next Raid Event you will notice that Raid Bosses now have their own tab on the Boss page, similar to how Challenges have their own space next to Adventures.

    You can read a bit more about this change and see some screenshots in this thread here.

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

    Happy weekend!

    Thank you @mi7ch for writing up my section of the TGIF last Friday. We were seeing some unexpected alerts with my email system and I wanted to make sure my work was backed up in case it went kaput.

    It's been an interesting week. The recent tragedy in Paris has been on our minds, as it has with many of our players. We know many people feel strongly about topics such as the international response to this and other acts of terror, as well as the policies on the handling of refugees.

    While I believe that interest in and discussion of these topics is important and necessary, I'll remind everyone that comments that paint all people of a particular religion, national origin, or ethnicity as dangerous or inferior are not acceptable. So don't be racist. :)

    We did have a player contact us suggesting we do a special item sale to raise funds for the relief efforts. I think it's a great idea -- unfortunately campaigns like that have some pretty strict legal requirements and we're not set up to handle them on short notice. However we do encourage anyone interested in helping out to consider a donation to the Red Cross, which aids in emergencies like these across the world.

    You can donate either to the National Society in your country, or to the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies (IFRC) directly (which I have done) here . ( http://www.ifrc.org/en/get-involved/donate/ )



    Terrible Joke of the Week

    Here's your lame joke of the week!

    Why did Cinderella get kicked off the soccer team?
    Because she kept running from the ball!

    That's it for TGIF this week, everybody! Thanks for reading and have a great weekend!

    Kind of stinks that some (not all) of the games are available on iOS, and instead of working on giving Android users the same access, the limited iOS access is being promoted with free FPs.

    Not like we're planning on working on the other games or an Android version, or anything. Everyone will get their chance at this promotion eventually. :)

    Mitch, how about sorting the arena out so that it is actually playable rather than having the lag from hell. Basics first, if no one is playing because of the rubbish service then it doesn't matter how many platforms / devices the game is available on..............

    Sort out the servers and stop giving a less than tolerable service. The last two arenas have been a joke.

    I spoke to the developers about this yesterday and they will be working on how the servers work during the Arenas.

    Thank you for swift response Mitch. I hope for the games sake there is a significant improvement before many more players vote with their feet. Having bothered my arse to get up at 2am, was less than impressed that I could only click fresh air.....................
