Dear Citizens of DarkSwords, we are under attack!
It is already a few day since we are valiantly defending ourselves from the marauder onslaught who keep relentlessly trying to destroy our central firewall system again and again! Their main weapon is improved DDOS arrows that have been made by network weaponsmith. Our brave knights are fearlessly fighting back with all that they have, thus keeping attackers at the gates with minimal casualties.
But who is behind all this? Who dared to fight against Amber Lands?
Dear DarkSwordians, we offer you a contest! Continue the story in the similar setting and send it to us. TOP 3 of the most interesting stories will get prizes! Collective stories are also welcome, in that case the prize will be given to the group/clan/ally
The stories can be send to Tib by skype or added to forum
P.S. The attacks on server are real and sometimes servers might experience shutdowns.
UPDATE SERVER ISSUES
At the moment we still have some problems with the ddos attack. This is the reason that players still disconnect from game from time to time. We will solve the issue as soon as possible. It takes longer than we hoped, but it also means that people dont get what they want.
As you all probably know this ddos attack was done by a player who wanted another player to be banned. Since he didnt get what he want, he decided to do this ddos attack to force us to do what he wants. That is not going to happen. We are very sorry that players are involved in this, but we hope you understand our decision. Thanks all for your understanding.
As you all noticed we are having some problems with the server at the moment. We are working on it and will have server up as soon as possible again. Our apologies for the inconvenience.
Who missed x2 gold will have it again
