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.

Legends of Equestria at BABSCon 2015 & Open Server Announcement!

Mar 29
BABSCon is coming up in April! For those of you going, we wish you a safe travel and a happy time down at the convention. If you haven't heard yet, we'll be making our way down there as well! You'll be able to meet and talk with the ponies who help make the game possible and prod them with thousands of questions.

If you're not joining us at BABSCon, fear not; you'll be able to enjoy our panel through the magic of the internet, where we'll be discussing all sorts of cool stuff about the game and perhaps leak some cool secrets!

Err, I mean, what secrets? We don't have any secrets!
Legends of Equestria does not comment on rumors and speculations relating to the game.

Mmm, yes, quite. Anyway, the panel happens at 1:30 PM PDT on Friday April 3rd so we hope to see everypony there!

After the convention, we hope you'll still have some room left for more fun! We're happy to announce that we'll be having another Open Server Event on April 10-12! It will be a chance to try out some cool new features we've been working on in the game, as well as experience all the content we've offered in the past. Just in case you missed any of it! We'll be providing more information, and the download links, closer to the event, so stay tuned!

April is going to be an exciting month for Legends of Equestria and we hope to see you all join us for the fun!

Now if you excuse me, I need to get ready to meet up with Golden Gates!
Hmm... Now where is my airship ticket...

February's OSE Client now available to download!

Feb 20
Hello everypony!!

The Open Server Event is almost upon us! Servers open up at 12:01 AM EST on Friday January 20th (i.e. tomorrow, in roughly three hours). 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!

Windows (x86 / 32-bit): Removed, see you next time! Updated
Windows (x64 / 64-bit): Removed, see you next time! Updated
Mac OS X: Removed, see you next time! Updated
Linux: Removed, see you next time! Updated

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"

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!

Open Server Test February 20-21!

Feb 16

Hello everyone!!

The most recent Open Server Weekend suffered from connection issues and room crashes. Despite the problems, we managed to set a new record for the most players on simultaneously; but we know that it wasn't the ideal experience we had hoped for, and that a lot of you still didn't get a chance to experience the game. Plus, these events are our opportunity to make sure everything in the game's working as intended.

To give you a bit more insight, one of the major issues we had to deal with involved a DDoS attack on our servers. What is a DDoS attack you might ask? Well, check out this cool link I stumbled upon while pondering that same question myself: http://www.digitalattackmap.com/understanding-ddos/. What follows are screenshots of the traffic we received during the DDoS attack.

Those inbound numbers would look really cool if this was an internet speed test. Unfortunately, that's not the case here. Those high inbound numbers mean too many fake connections were trying to reach our servers keeping out real connections (i.e. actual players) from enjoying the game. Not very fun if you ask me. We're constantly working behind the scenes addressing problems as they come up. However, we know that still doesn't change the fact that many players were left out from enjoying the last Open Server Weekend.

Therefore, to make up for those that were unable to play last Open Server Weekend, and to give us another chance to test our systems and some new fixes, we'd like to give everyone another opportunity to explore Equestria. That's why we'll be holding another Open Server Test soon, on February 20-21!

We'll make another announcement once the game client is available to download. You will be able to to install the game client on your computer prior to the Open Server Test, but remember, the servers won't be open until 12:01 AM EST on Friday, February 20th. The servers will close on Saturday, February 21st at 11:59 PM EST.

Hope to see you then!

(P.S. Here's a cool countdown. Enjoy!)
