On July 5, Legends of Equestria suffered a cyberattack that compromised a key database in our system, and allowed the attacker to access records such as usernames, email addresses, and password hashes for all accounts registered with us.

From what we’ve been able to gather, it does not appear that the attacker’s aim was to collect personal information from the accounts of all players. Instead, members of our team were specifically targeted, in order to use their information to attempt to gain access to game project files.

Although at this stage we do not believe that gathering general user information from our audience was the attacker’s aim, the fact remains that this information was available to them. Sensitive data was protected (e.g. salted and hashed), but simpler information, such as passwords containing no mixed symbols and common words/phrases, could have been brute-forced. This means that the attacker would potentially be able to access any account using that same email and password combination on any other website or service.

For this reason, we once again strongly recommend that anyone who has ever created a Legends of Equestria account — to post on our forum, or to play the game during one of our open events — immediately changes their passwords on any website or service that may have had the same password as the one they used with LoE.

We are continuing to investigate this issue, and are taking the necessary precautions to prevent anything like this happening again. Because of these efforts, we do not anticipate having our forum available for public use again until the end of July, to ensure that we can maintain the safety of everyone in the future.

We do not yet know whether this attack will delay development of the game past our intended Open Access Release date of August 19; we are still working hard on the project, but have lost valuable development time because of this attack. As soon as we have a better idea of whether this will cause us to push back that release date, we will let everyone know.

We can only apologise for this security breach, and promise you all that we are working hard and taking all necessary steps to prevent anything like this from happening again. We are still committed to bringing you the best possible experience of the world of Equestria that we’ve built, and we hope that you will be patient and understanding as we deal with this issue.

The Servers are now Closed!

Jan 27

Hello, everyone!

The Open Server Weekend has ended and the servers are now closed.

We hope you all enjoyed playing our game! We all had a lot of fun and learned a lot from you that will come in useful for future updates!

If you still want to submit screenshots, videos or fanart, feel free to post in this thread here: http://bit.ly/1t2M6f8

Thanks again, all!


Open Server Weekend Update

Jan 24
Hello everyone! We wanted to give you all a quick update on the situation with our servers.

The attack subsided early this morning and we were able to restore our servers to working order. The servers are still receiving a higher than normal load; because of this, you might receive errors attempting to connect to the servers. Please note that we are gathering data on the issue, and if you aren't able to connect now, please try attempting to connect in a little while.

If you find yourself stuck in a huge aerial view of the landscape after loading the game, this means you are currently in the waitlist. You will spawn in the area once an opening appears in the game.

Thanks for testing out our game! We hope you enjoy the Open Server Weekend!


A notice for those having trouble logging in

Jan 24
Hey everyone, we're happy to see the huge response to our Open Server Weekend! We even managed to break some records for the number of people logged in at once! Unfortunately, there are a few bad eggs that are spoiling the batch. As such, our servers are under a DDoS Attack. We would like to apologize if you are unable to access the server at this time or are experiencing issues playing the game. Our team is working now to rectify this issue and we hope to keep you updated on any resolutions as they come up.

Once again, thanks for your tremendous support! We hope to see you around during the Open Server Weekend.


Winter Open Server Test Announcement! January 24th-26th!

Jan 03

How do you like to celebrate the new year? Either spending time with family, or partying with friends? Inclined to stay up all night one day and sleep in the next? However you spend this time of year, I personally like to celebrate it with ponies and more ponies - and now you can too!

Tune in later this month, from the 24th to the 26th, and you'll find that the servers will be open for all of you to come in and enjoy the game! We can all have fun playing, dancing, doing quests, fighting monsters, or just sittin' in the town square with our buds.

The new build will be available on the 22nd of January on our downloads page. On the 24th, the servers will open at 12:01 AM EST and close on the 26th at 11:59 PM EST.
We have recently created a new server system, which so far has proven to be far more secure than the previous system. This is a test of the new system. Please remember that you must have a forum account in order to log in and play the game.

Everyone here on the team hopes to have some great fun together with you to kick off the new year, and we hope you'll join us for it! Roll on 2015!
