In two days all hell will break loose in Mythador - and war will come to the place you thought could never be touched by a sword. War is coming to your homeland and it will leave charred smoking ruins and fields of corpses behind... We have experience the destruction Army vs Town PvP brings in our office environment games - and we figured it was fair to give you a warning - prepare for war! Build you walls, men your walls and get ready! On a side note - the upcoming patch also adds several other huge features to the game - and fixes countless number of bugs.

No cheating - just skill:) I did advise you to bring more siege towers and heavy infantry - mounted GMs just don`t cut it with Army vs Town gameplay. We had several games with GPS with Army vs Town - and hey I got to say this is the most fun we ever had with DoF. I`ll be sure to set some time aside on Monday to burn some of your towns down:)

So the Time has come.
To prove your worth in Battle.
To strife for Survival in the Laws of Nature.
And to Win Glory by standing the tests of Time.


I wish you Luck my Lovely Enemys.
But I wont seed any Hope in your senseless struggle.
My Walls are Thick and High.
And the Soldiers and Knights Defending em are only the Finest and most Able who have proven themself in Countless Battles tasting the Blood of your kin.


Your Destiny awaits you.
Come and Try to Challenge it!

The Silvanian Oder of the Shadowed Cross shall Greet you.
If you dare that is .....



Greetz ;)

Ha ha! Now your cities will burn! :p

And now the mighty walls of Kemgalen, Jewel of Boleta, are finished at last; everywhere, bolt throwers are being summoned, mounted grandmasters are sharping their swords, and bards are reciting poems of our future victories.

But I have to ask: Kon, could you tell us a bit about the other features and bug fixes that are coming with the patch?

Nice:D ...but didn't I hear something about changing the pathfinding system, to get rid of lag? When's that coming?

The new skill system looks cool though, more options than just attack, endurance, and healing.

New pathfinding will take good two weeks - and it`ll be the next major project we work on.

How do you PvP? I can't find any PvP.

Create an army on the world map and then click pvp. It should try to match you with another army in your region that similiar in strength. It shouldnt take too long if your army strength is in the 100-300 range. Move your army to another region if you can't find anything.

So is this patch actually happening or is it going to be delayed for a 4th time?

The patch "might" happen tonight if evening goes smoothly. But most likely we are looking at tomorrow afternoon. We`ll keep you posted guys.

I'm ok with waiting, although I just picked up the game so I can understand why others are impatient haha. Looking forward to it either way.

Well
Its coming
and we know theyre working on it

Just keep your calm

I have been playing Mortal Online for a while
about 3 Months ago they Announced a new Patch
a Month later they Announced it to be out within 3 weeks
and till now its not out

well that being said I know progging is work
and much wont just go as you want it on first try

yesterday I was tempering with one of my Games and what was planned as a small sideaction for about 20 minutes ended with a 3 hour marathon of editing and adjusting files thanks to a mistaken source call which caused a graphical glitch and annoyed the hell out of me before I finally found all missing lines and rewrote it ....


The thing angering me on such occassions is not the delay
but the thing that nobody talks to you and nobody even thinks about telling you why something was delayed or how much




Its something I wrote in Many Forums
Games dont lose Players because they delay something thats not ready
they lose em because they dont talk to them and dont give info to them

If stuff that was supposed to come out doesnt come out and on top I dont get any response or statement from the guys responsible I get the feeling that a game is dead
and once that feeling is on its practically impossible not to lose Users ....



I know I Sound quite Arrogant lecturing people about such stuff
but actually I would think its common sense that People will get uneasy when they are left in the dark .....

And in this Game I know that this aint the case
so dont mind me too much ;)

just a little smartass talking like he knows everything :P

4th time delayed xD This seems to be a bit of a trend with patches and the like. Maybe realistic time frames should be thought through and then adding a few days. I mean if it comes early we will be surprised and happy but delaying yet again just keeps disappointing me.

Well it's like this... some times a bug rears it's head and delays things. So the devs could release the patch knowing that there's a big bug or fix the bug and delay the patch. They're writing the code as they go btw.

I will always take a delay for a better product than a rush job that breaks somthing else in the process. Bring on the delays!

I think most of us would. I'm just saying that they know there is going to be hiccups along the way that they need to fix but they always seem to tell us the shortest time period. Just tell us it will be ready in a month and if it comes out in a couple weeks its a bonus rather than the constant dissapointment of delays.
