<img style="padding-right:3px;" align="left" src="http://www.dawnoffantasy.com/icons/newsicon.png" />We had a few reports of players getting "Connection to the City Failed" or "Connection Timed Out" errors - and as much as we hate to admit it - our server has hit a temporary limit - that we are working on increasing right now.

Meanwhile you still should be able to login - just try it a few times, and wait about 30 seconds after each try. The afternoon player rush should end in about 3 hours and you should be able to get online with no problems.

We have a fix for this ready, but unfortunately it would require us to restart the server, and we can`t really do it yet - as so many players would complain about 5 minutes downtime... We do plan to do this sometime during late night once there are less players online.

Please accept our apologies for the inconvenience. And thanks for all the support guys! We are glad to see thousands of you enjoying the game - and I guess this is just one of these "pleasant" issues - we just never imagined so many players enjoying DoF: Kingdom Wars.

It is awesome that you guys are so honest and open about what was happening. I think this is one of the first times I have seen what with a gaming company. Kudos to you guys, and congrats on the large boost in population.

Hi there, I'm not getting the "Connection to the City Failed" or "Connection Timed Out" errors BUT it will not allow me to connect to the server at ALL. I have turned off the firewall and my internet connectivity is working properly.
