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!)

Open Server Weekend Update

Jan 24
Hello everyone! We wanted to give you all a quick update on the situation with our servers.

The attack subsided early this morning and we were able to restore our servers to working order. The servers are still receiving a higher than normal load; because of this, you might receive errors attempting to connect to the servers. Please note that we are gathering data on the issue, and if you aren't able to connect now, please try attempting to connect in a little while.

If you find yourself stuck in a huge aerial view of the landscape after loading the game, this means you are currently in the waitlist. You will spawn in the area once an opening appears in the game.

Thanks for testing out our game! We hope you enjoy the Open Server Weekend!

A notice for those having trouble logging in

Jan 24
Hey everyone, we're happy to see the huge response to our Open Server Weekend! We even managed to break some records for the number of people logged in at once! Unfortunately, there are a few bad eggs that are spoiling the batch. As such, our servers are under a DDoS Attack. We would like to apologize if you are unable to access the server at this time or are experiencing issues playing the game. Our team is working now to rectify this issue and we hope to keep you updated on any resolutions as they come up.

Once again, thanks for your tremendous support! We hope to see you around during the Open Server Weekend.

Winter Open Server Test Announcement! January 24th-26th!

Jan 03

How do you like to celebrate the new year? Either spending time with family, or partying with friends? Inclined to stay up all night one day and sleep in the next? However you spend this time of year, I personally like to celebrate it with ponies and more ponies - and now you can too!

Tune in later this month, from the 24th to the 26th, and you'll find that the servers will be open for all of you to come in and enjoy the game! We can all have fun playing, dancing, doing quests, fighting monsters, or just sittin' in the town square with our buds.

The new build will be available on the 22nd of January on our downloads page. On the 24th, the servers will open at 12:01 AM EST and close on the 26th at 11:59 PM EST.
We have recently created a new server system, which so far has proven to be far more secure than the previous system. This is a test of the new system. Please remember that you must have a forum account in order to log in and play the game.

Everyone here on the team hopes to have some great fun together with you to kick off the new year, and we hope you'll join us for it! Roll on 2015!
