Compensation For The First Players Of Albion Online

albion2-5.fw

Albion Online has had some success since its launch, so that servers are struggling to keep up with the load and that players are slowing down. The Sandbox Interactive studio provides technical solutions and compensations for players.

albion3-5

As noted, Albion Online was officially launched on July 17 and according to the Sandbox Interactive studio, the MMO is more successful with players than originally envisaged. Few developers complain about it, but here, the high population density in some areas puts the servers to the test and slows down the game. The players complain logically and the developer explains regularly on official forums. In a just published note, the development team outlines its action plan.

There is little or no evidence that players are experiencing slowdowns in overcrowded areas and clashes involving many fighters. And according to the developer, the problem is due to the fact that the more players there are, the more interactions to be managed by the server: the number exponentially increases and the technical infrastructure does not change anything An additional player intervenes, the calculations are multiplied).

In order to remedy these two main difficulties, the developer envisages short- or medium-term solutions that include a system of instances to relieve overloaded areas (mainly in the city) and increase the number and frequency of occurrence PvP Areas of Interest “, so as to further distribute players through the gaming universe and prevent all players from concentrating in the same place at the same time to enjoy it.

On the other hand, for a reason not yet identified, the game servers must be restarted regularly when access to the database is running, while they remain below their maximum capacity. The developer is in direct contact with the Apache Cassandra teams, the technology on which the MMO database is based, in order to apply a patch quickly.

And if the studio tries to demonstrate to the players both the origin of the problems and the solutions implemented, Sandbox Interactive is obviously also aware of the exasperation of some players and announces compensations: all Players who played between the commercial launch of Albion Online (July 17) and yesterday will receive seven days of additional premium game time on their account. And if the problems are not resolved within two weeks (the time to apply solutions, but also because the launch craze fades away), additional compensation will be granted.

Casual, Social and Hybrid Guilds

GoodFellas

Goodfellas

It’s an English guild focus on Social, Warfare and Competitive.

“GoodFellas is a highly organized guild, which was founded in early 2017 by experienced Albion players. Our community is social with a friendly and helpful atmosphere. We offer you a mature and competitive environment with really good mix of experience, talent and new energy,” Kutweer, the Guild Leader said, “GoodFellas is taking part in every aspect the game has to offer. We need all kind of artisans to upkeep our rearmament and all kind of soldiers to fill our units. We are going to crawl through every dungeon and raid that we can find in the lands of Albion and we are going to roam the open world to find some good PvP action.”

Mugged

Mugged

It’s an EU guild about Casual, Black Zone, Competitive, PvE and PvP.

RejectedGoose, the Guild Leader stated, “Mugged is a small, competitive, casual, black zone guild based in Caerleon. We try to let our members do what they love; You want to manipulate the stock market? Go ahead! Your glowing weapon thirsts for gatherers? Awesome! You enjoy riding on that pretty ox all day? Poor ox. We’re trying to support our members, while we are keeping our hands dirty, with a fun, light and exciting atmosphere.” The website of guild is still under construction.

Tears of Morgana

Tears of Morgana

It’s a Global guild mainly about Hardcore & Casual, Economy, Crafting, Gathering, PvE, PvP, GvG, New-Player Friendly.

The Guild Leader is TellTales. “Tears of Morgana is a newly-established guild that freshly appeared on the Albion scene just prior to the release. Focused on time-efficiency and aiming for cutting edge progression, the guild is encompassed with a social, talented and multinational community that sets us different from the rest due to our non-elitist attitude and friendly, supportive atmosphere that surrounds the guild, both in and out of the game. There once existed a significant gap between the main dominating guilds and all the others during the Albion Beta; thus Tears of Morgana collectively shares a genuine interest in closing what was an ever-growing division in hope for a healthy, balanced and competitive (friendly, of course!) future. Tears of Morgana could be your new home – where passion for progressive gaming exists.”

Semi-Hardcore Guilds

Honor n Glory

Honor n Glory

It’s a Brazilian/Portuguese guild and it’s a place for players who are interested in PvP and PvX.

According to Shesius, the Guild Leader, ‘Honor n Glory was created in the Beta of Albion Online and was born from the will of a group of players that had the vision to create a healthy, strong, and united Brazilian community. The guild went through a lot of changes and survived good and bad times. As of now, Honor n Glory is back. Completely reborn, restructured, and ready but with the same original purpose of being a competitive guild and a reference for the Portuguese-speaking community!”

Infinite

Infinite

An EU/NA guild for Semi-Hardcore, PvP and PVE.

Guild Leader xOrgy explained, “Infinite has been around in Albion for nearly three years now and since our beginnings we have grown in numbers. We took part in every single Beta and found a lot of good members throughout our journey. We learned valuable lessons and gained a lot of important experience. Even while we are a quite laid-back guild, we want to keep it competitive. However, we define the quality of our members through their personality and not their skills. We would always pass on a highly skilled player that is a jerk and take the average skilled player with a much better personality as we believe that skill is something that can be taught. Playing together as a team with quality people is what will bring closer on the way to reach our goals.”

TIER8

TIER8

A Semi-Hardcore EU guild mainly focus on Caerleon, Black Zone, PvP, GvG and HG.

The Guild Leader is Brute. “An active, friendly and semi-hardcore-progressive guild is what TIER8 stands for. Working together to attain a greater goal, progressively working our way through the harder content is what it’s all about. With a vision for PvP and a healthy dose for PvE we are a guild for any and all,” he said, “TIER8 reaches back till the first Beta of Albion, where we first spread across the land in ever growing numbers. And we continue to do so until this day; sporting healthy numbers and active adventuring. We truly are a guild for all.” The website is not ready.

Hardcore Guilds

Iron Bank

Iron Bank

It’s an English guild good at Commerce, Warfare and Diplomacy.

“Founded by experienced alpha players, the Iron Bank is on track to be the strongest financial institution in all of Albion. Our core strength comes from embracing the innovative and competitive freedoms of Capitalism; something that Communism can’t match. In a corporate infrastructure ruled by meritocracy, the Iron Bank, with 200+ international players, operates as an economic powerhouse propelled by diplomacy and supported by experienced lethal combatants. Our coin will do the talking, and our iron grip will do the rest,” according to the Guild Leader, Sharka.

Team Casualty

Team Casualty

A Hardcore NA guild that for players who like Blackzone PVP. It’s New-Player Friendly.

TheWittleGuy, Co-Leader – “Team Casualty prides ourselves on taking anyone and turning them into strong PvP warriors. TC started out as a ten-man yellow-zone guild, so we understand the struggles of trying to learn and progress. We then rose from the yellow zones and began our journey to the black zones. but got destroyed in our first GvG fight. That one GvG inspired us, stuck with us… and turned us into the strong guild we are today. We have now combined our excellent Open World PvP with our close friends “Core” and their amazing GvG teams. We’ve also joined a powerhouse alliance lead by Echo of Silence. Our hard work and dedication paid off… and has sealed our place as one of the top guilds in Albion Online.”

The Fleet

The Fleet

It’s an Organized Hardcore International guild good at Black Zone, PvP, GvG and HG.

Vocadin, Guild Leader, “The Fleet is a guild consisting of hardcore players who intent to not only master the mechanics within a game but also the theories behind those mechanics. This means, if we aren’t in game we are theory-crafting, crunching numbers, trying to find any gaps where min / max is possible, or creating spreadsheets. We highly value organization as well as communication within our guild. We want all of our members to be happy and we want all of them to see that following the clear path of understanding will lead to the much better results than blindly stumbling into things. All decisions are discussed with all all of our members, including our recruits, to make sure everyone is on the same page about which way to go and where to focus.”

Summarize All The Changes To Hector Update In Albion Online

Sandbox Interactive will publish a major update before the official launch of Albion Online on 17 July 2017. Now all changes to the so-called Hector update were summarized again.

After the developers had finally told about the background to the Hector update, an overview of the new features introduced with the patch in Albion Online now followed. So not only the Hellgates and the Outlands are changed, the update also brings the Black Market with it. New mounts, a tutorial and numerous optimizations complete the package.

hector.fw

The features of the Hector update (according to official data) at a glance:

  • The Black Market: The black market trader is a new non-player character in Caerleon. But he is not an ordinary NPC with unlimited needs. The amount of goods he is willing to buy is directly affected by the number of monsters killed in the entire world by Albion. Equipment purchased from him lands through dark channels of monster hordes and crates scattered all over Albion. So that all items are still made in the game of players.
  • New Hellgates: These zones designed especially for PvP battles are already an extremely popular element among the players. The revised goals contain a completely new map layout, three different difficulty levels of the Hellgates as well as various improvements to the underlying game mechanics.
  • Improvements in the Outlands: Already with the last update “Galahad” the Outlands were fundamentally changed. With “Hector” they are to be further improved. For example, all cities and ports are removed from the black zones. Instead, there is now a portal in Caerleon linking the city with the different areas of the Outlands. The distribution of resources in the outlands is also adjusted.
  • Watchtower territories in the Outlands: The Watchtower territories within the Outlands are upgraded to make them more attractive to the players. Better resources spawn at the beginning of the respective prime time of the area. In addition, the watchtowers will be the only areas in Albion where Tier 8 resources are available.
  • New Mounts: Several new equine animals come into play, including several factional groups for the Undead; The disciples of Morgana and Keeper faction. You can now drop materials for a Tier 5 and Tier 8 mount. In addition, the players now have the small chance of Giant Stags (Tier 4) and Ancient Mammoths (Tier 8) to capture a young animal. These can then be applied to the Giant Stag and Transport Mammoth mount.
  • The Tutorial: The introduction into the game should be easier for newcomers. With the revised tutorial, the players also get training opportunities beyond the beginner island. So there are Expeditions Masters forces in the beginner island, where the beginning players can complete corresponding series of missions. As a reward, a Tier 2 cape and mount!
  • Updates to the User Interface: The user interface is another element that changes are made. The revision of the fate board UI makes the crucial game element more readable and user-friendly. Also the presentation of the life-line and the guild management is revised.
  • Changes in the PVE in the Open World: A new, medium-sized mobcamp at most solo dungeons now brings more variety and open-world gameplay to Albion. Many of these bearings are completely redesigned. Also, the cards for group monsters are replaced by new ones, and each now receives a very large bearing with a dungeon in the middle.
  • Reworking Armor Visuals: The different armor sets in Albion Online will be optically revised for the Hector update. The changes are rather inconspicuous, but serve to make the armor easier to recognize.
  • Other changes and bug fixes: A lot of small changes and bug fixes come naturally also with “Hector” into the game.

Albion Online will be available on 7th July. If you want to make the most of the update, you should take your time to buy cheap Albion Online gold for sale on UPAlbion. Click here to visit our site.

Albion Online: Exact Changes Are Coming To The Outlands

Sandbox Interactive continues to rack in improvements to the upcoming Albion Online, the latest of which was the improvements to the Outlands of Hector.

According to the Game Director of Albion Online, in addition to major changes Galahad brings to the Outlands, there are some minor things will be improved in Outlands, such as the roles and goals of the Outlands cities and reward balancing while they don’t want to change the lawless identity of the black zones.

Here is a video that introduce the exact changes are coming to the Outlands and adjustments in the Hector update:

Portal To The Outlands – Caerleon

The current Outlands cities are not fulfilling their roles of being a home for guilds without territories or players who have been excluded from the Royal Continent. For this reason, the developing team decided to remove all cities in the Outlands, as well as all harbors. Instead, a massive portal will now be available in Caerleon, the center city of the Royal Continent.

This portal will lead to different parts of the Outlands, with four exits per region of the Outlands. These exits are different per arena of the Outlands. The low regions will have green exits, the mid region yellow exits and the high-end region red exits. Using the portal is free of costs, but it will bind you the exit you have used for a short time, as well as the region of the Outlands you travelled to for a longer amount of time. This limits how guilds can project their force in the Outlands, while still allowing Caerleon to function as a hub for the Outlands. Finally, Caerleon will now be considered a black zone citiy, allowing players with a Nefarious or Dreaded reputation to enter.

Increased Rewards And Other Changes

Game Director Robin Henkys stated that there are two changes coming to the rewards of the Outlands. The first one is that, the resource distribution is being adjusted. All parts of the Outlands are getting the same amount of resources, but will have different rates of enchanted resources. The higher areas are getting an increased rate. Overall, the black zones will have a significantly higher amount of enchanted resources compared to the Royal Continent. This creates a really strong incentive for gatherers to go to the Outlands, if they want to get their hands on level two and three enchanted materials.

The second change of rewards is changing the way watchtower territories work to make GvG more attractive. Watchtowers will now be the only place in the world where you can find Tier 8 resources. On top of that, resources will respawn at the start of the prime time of the territory. This means that at that time, or right after the first GvG fight, you can begin to harvest those resources. If your guild does not own a watchtower territory, you can still get your hands on Tier 8 resources as you can now raid watchtowers and collect its high-end resources, even if it does not belong to you.

Evacuate To Safe Places

Albion Online is removing the harbors and black zone cities are being as well as their banks and cityplots. Robin recommended that players who have any items stored in one of the following maps need to move them to a safe place before Hector goes live. Marketplaces and islands linked to soon-to-be removed maps will be moved to Caerleon.

  • Aberdown Harbor
  • Cawl Quay
  • Clack Quay
  • Farewich
  • Fort Thursair
  • Harlech Quay
  • Lowe Quay
  • Lyme Harbor
  • Mull Quay
  • Noss Quay
  • Pember Quay
  • Sheerbrough
  • Sunder Quay
  • Tenby Quay

Plus, anti-zerg display in the Outlands is on testing mode on the Albion Online live server. The mechanism shows groups of more than ten players on the minimap, and should in general provide more balanced fights and overall action. The display is not confirmed to be enabled or not.
