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.

Open Server Party Download Now Available!

Jan 15
Hello, everybody!

It's almost here! The Open Server Party starts at 9:00 AM EST, January 16th, 2016 (see the timer at the bottom of this post) and to make sure you can experience as much of the party as possible, here are the download links for the game client! Make sure to pick the right download for your operating system, but remember that you won't be able to log into the game until the servers are open, okay? Awesome!

Direct Downloads

We've had some changes to our Windows launcher, so even if you downloaded during the last Open Server Event, you'll need to download it again.

Downloads are no longer available, see you next time!


If you're not on a Windows device, or prefer a direct download, we've got you covered!

Downloads are no longer available, see you next time!

Please Note: Your browser might inform you that the file is malicious! Don't worry though, it's still safe!

How to unblock a download on Chrome
If you are using Google Chrome, it may try to block the download because Google Chrome is silly. To skip the filter, hit Ctrl-J to open your downloads window and click "Recover Malicious File"

Notes

Remember, like our other Open Server Events, character data and items collected in previous events won't carry over to the Open Server Party, and likewise they won't carry over from this event.

That's it, thanks again for all of your support, and we'll see you this weekend in Equestria!

So, starting at 9:00 AM EST January 16th, and running until 11:00 PM EST January 17th. Remember, we're holding a party here, not a test - so let loose, have fun, and enjoy!
