About

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.

ANNOUNCING THE GRAND GALLOPING GALA
held in Stuttgart from August 11th to August 12th

(Stuttgart, April 2nd 2012)

My dearest subjects,

We are very proud to announce the first Galacon in Stuttgart, Germany – A convention for fans of Hasbro’s “My Little Pony™: Friendship is Magic” franchise. On August 11th and 12th, the DJH Stuttgart International will be the place where everypony should be. Up to 400 ponies from all across Europe can come. We will have the best night ever.

The main event of the convention will be the Gala Ball on Saturday to please her royal majesty Celestia. Speaking of special someponies, we are very proud to announce some of our guests of honour:

SweBow - PR Head of the anticipated "Legends of Equestria" MMORPG will present the game live at the Gala and will show its special features.

Mr. Poniator - You might have seen one of his episode summaries. Combining Flash animation skills and a good sense of humour, he puts a new twist on your favorite MLP episodes. You can also expect that he has something prepared for the Gala.

KeepOnRockin'Brony - The Neighterlands have more to offer than tulips and windmills. KeepOnRockin'Brony will rock the Gala with DnB and more. It will be a musical extravaganza.

Kiyoshiii - Even though nopony knows how many "i"s are in his name, he is the Rarity of Art for the Gala. Everything from our con pony, Canni, to the promo art arose from his creative mind.


Ticket registration will open at the end of April. For information and more, feel free to visit www.galacon.eu and leave a note.

Your faithfully,

Galacon Staff

Hope to see you guys there!  ^-^

Legends of Equestria - Statement

Mar 20
Statement from the ex-development team of Equestria Online

Okay, we’ve gotten this request. We’ve read the comments and heard the demand to know what happened on the other side of the story. At first, it was our intention to keep this matter private, since it had nothing to do with the production of the game and we wanted to stay professional about the matter. But since the outpouring of sentiments about the current status and future of the project, we feel we owe you an explanation.

First, just let us explain: none of us wished for the outcome that happened, but this statement will hopefully make you realise that there was no other option.

While RainDrop was away in school our team leader for PR and Business (SweBow) took over somewhat as team leader. He started to build up a democratic way to control the project that allowed everyone to have a say (3D team, Audio Team, 2D team, etc.), by allowing their team leaders to be able to bring up their questions to the rest of the team leaders at weekly meetings on Fridays. We then started to develop a Code of Conduct/NDA. This paper not only said that the project was allowed to use your files if you left, but it also protected you as the creator of the work. It stated you still owned your work, and you were protected so that no team leader could single-handedly kick you off for no good reason, but in fact needed the majority vote of the Team Leaders to get removed. The team member who might be getting a kick had all rights to appeal a decision like this. It never happened, no team leader ever had to implement a kick after the Code of Conduct was proclaimed.

Now, lets go on with the explanation now that you’ve got a bit of the background story.

What caused the split of the development team was actually about the Code of Conduct. RainDrop wanted absolute power since he founded the project. We wanted to continue with the democratic way of handling things as we had done the last six months while RainDrop was gone - something that had worked out in our favor for the project as whole.

But what do you mean by absolute power? To explain it simply, everything created, developed, coded or whatnot would become his. We, as the development team, wouldn’t get any say about our assets. RainDrop refused to agree with the Code of Conduct even though we asked for his input during the development process. So he was aware of the Code of Conduct and what it meant long before last week.

Some have pointed out that since he started the project, it is his to do with as he pleases.
We agree. That's why we now have parted ways. He is left with the project as it was before September. Anything that was created by team members now affiliated with LoE is no longer part of EO.

99% of the team has left to continue a new 3D Pony MMO. We did so with great reluctance.
None of us wished this would happen, none of us wanted this to end like it did. We tried to compromise, we tried to find an agreement (several times, in fact) but there was none to be found. Therefore, the Team Leaders acted as any good leader would. We acted to protect our team members’ assets and time they put into the creation of the game. We gave all of our members the full story and notified them of our intent to form a new project. None were forced. They all left of their own free will, for the same reasons we did.

As a final note, we’d like to ask everyone to please not spread rumors, speculation or lies about what happened. We have no ill will toward EO or RainDrop. We do not wish either party to have to deal with any negativity as a result of this.

Thank you for your patience and we hope to see you at www.legendsofequestria.com

Welcome to LoE!

Mar 19
Hey, everyone. I'm sure you remember me, and tons of the other leaders from the former project we worked on.
As more of you are finding this site, I'm sure you would like to know what happened.

Some have already stated that RainDrop's side of the story, as posted on the Equestria Online homepage, is quite biased.

While you guys get used to the new forums (still under construction, and we may have a few problems with the host at the moment), be rest assured that SweBow or perhaps all of us will give you our side of the story.

We wish no ill-will to what happens over at Equestria Online, but almost all the team leaders (with the exclusion of RainDrop) and many - if not all - the project's dedicated and talented staff, are at home with Legends of Equestria as a new project.

I hope you understand that a majority of what changed was simply the name of the project and a teeny-tiny bit of leadership.

Also, new smilies coming soon, these are awful huh? :P

If any teamleaders have a problem with this post, feel free to remove or edit it.
