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.

August Open Server Downloads now Available!

Aug 13
Hello Everypony!

The Open Server Event is almost upon us! Servers open up at 12:01 AM EST on Friday August 14th (See the timer at the bottom of the post). We hope you're as excited as we are! To get you ready for the Open Server Event, here are the download links for the game client. Go ahead and pick the download that corresponds to your machine's operating system and you'll be set to enter Equestria first thing tomorrow! Just know that the game won't let you log in until our game servers open up. Got that? Okay!

Direct Downloads

Servers are now Closed, the download is no longer available

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"

(Testing) Launcher
Windows Only!

Finally we are reintroducing our launcher back to the public, now with 100% more awesome. Currently it is only available for Windows users and does not work for XP. If you are interested in trying it out give it a download, keep in mind we still have the full download links available above in case it doesn't work for you.



If you are using windows 8 or 10, Windows Smartscreen may try to prevent you from running the game. To fix this, click "more info", then "run anyways" when the prompt shows up on your screen, and you should be ready for pony! Also, If you install the launcher where admin rights are required start the launcher as administrator by right clicking and selecting "Run as Administrator".

Notes

Take note that with each Open Server event, we enable new fixes and features. Therefore, we have to wipe game data on our servers with each update. Character data and items collected from previous Open Server events will NOT carry over.

Thanks again for all your support everyone! Next stop, Equestria!

Legends of Equestria at Bronycon 2015!

Jul 17

Hi again, everyone! We're pleased as punch to let you all know that we'll be hosting a panel at Bronycon on August 7th; alongside our previously-announced Galacon panel, that means we'll be doing two within a week! Busy times!

Members of the development team will be on-hand in the Hall of the Sun at 9pm; they'll be giving everyone a glimpse of what we're working on right now, talking a little about how we're making the game, and if you're lucky you'll get to ask them a question or two!

And remember, even if you can't make it to Bronycon, there's no need to miss out; our previously-announced Open Server Weekend will be running August 14-16, so we'll all get a chance to explore Equestria together then!

Hope to see you at the panel, or in the game, very soon!

Memories of the Open Server Event!

May 17
Hello, everypony!

I've been loving all the pictures and stories you've all been posting, so I decided to post some of my own!

I was overwhelmed with just how many of you there were! It was amazing meeting so many new friends!



We decided to make a heart shape - out of ponies! If any Pegasi got a better view, I'd love to see it!



More dancing with my new friends!



Next, we decided we'd meet by the fountain and play some games.



We played Hide and Seek in the mine. I got found really fast, but it was a lot of fun!





Next was the pony conga line. It lasted through the night and into the next morning!





Sugarcane Corner was the place to be. Lots of pictures from the party we had there!

 









We had a Fluffy visitor come to the party, but she ran around so much it was hard to get a picture!





This is the last one I got before the weekend ended, I had so much fun!



The Open Server Event was an amazing experience, and I can't wait for the next one! Meeting you ponies was so incredible, I only wish I could have met you all!
If youve got any memories to share, you can post them in this thread on our Forums, or tweet them to us at @LegendsofEq. Id love to see them!

See you next time!
