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.

Good news, everyone!

Apr 01
Hello everyone!

You may have heard about Facebook's recent shopping spree on everything you hold dear.  Well, we have a very special announcement for you today: they didn't stop at the Oculus Rift!

Facebook has bought Legends of Equestria for $1,000,000 US dollars, and that means we're going freemium!

We have already started the process of transferring our game into a cash generator a casual, entertaining game that you can hook up to all of your social networks and send your friends gratuitous amounts of invites!

Here is a behind-the-scenes screenshot!

We accept Paypal, Rupees, and Dogecoin as payment for all of our great freemium content.

We obtained an ultra-exclusive interview with the Team Directors on what they would be doing with their share of the $1,000,000 US dollars:

Cerebrate: I have already purchased NASA, and as soon they finish my rocket I'll be on my way to Jupiter.

Bloomberg: For the first time since I achieved my life-long dream and became a writer, I will be capable of eating something other than ramen.

Kit: I'm going to China to rebuild the Great Pyramids out of recycled horseshoes. This will provide eco-friendly jobs for unemployed ponies and also serve as my bridge to Valhalla.

AnyaSmash: I will make it so that ponies are actually a real thing, like, I will have horses genetically modified so that miniature horses can physically exist in the real world.

Blue Ink: I will be hiring DHX to create the show: My Little Waifu: Derpy is QT?.

Ellowee: I really see a lot of potential in this new site called Myspace, I think that if I invest in it, I can be really famous!
Hirosashii: I plan on putting it all in a trust fund for my children, so that they may achieve their dreams~

Perry the Pony: I am going to restart Canterlot Gardens 2013! Or whatever year it is!

Herabek: I think that, if I get all this money in dollar bills, I can carry it around in all of my pockets and that means that women will actually notice me!

SavanaPope: According to these numbers, I can purchase 1,254.33 hot tubs, and I plan on putting one inside the other, so when I get out of my hot tub I can step into my other hot tub for a minimum of 1,253.33 hot tub layers.

Vector: I'm planning on buying my own personal hot air balloon for which I will hire someone to man for me to the swiss alps. Once there I'll build my own personal lodge out of curdled cheese from himalayan goats. The bowling alley will have green Jell-o flooring and 5 flat screen TVs that only play the history channel and cartoon network, and the inner gardens will have plants transported from Papua, New Guinea.

Frankie: I'm going to bury it.

Keep an eye out on our social media for updates to this exciting new development! Due for release very soon, Valve Time!
