@RealSuperSand
I copied the new city into your slot 2 account, 1000 wealth, haunter dragon, new buildings are building, and check your shop bank, tons of resources for everything, 100k gold, ur set u can retrain everything as it was.

You can manually remove your old city in slot 1 when ever you wish

I'm sorry this happened, its extremely rare glitch that only seems to happen to some people rarely.

Default Still too powerful - Mages

I just met 4 or 6 mages on PvP

2or 3 Mages' Lightning storm spell melt down 2* lv 60 Royal Dragons(MAX HP=90,000) within a few seconds

I think Devs havent considered How MUCH Powerful when the same mages use same spell simultaneously.

Mages can reach lv 100.. and even this nuff patch.. still too strong when the same mages gather and use same spell.



And one more.. as the cost of elite units(including lv up cost) becomes too cheap these days,

normal units have little chance to stand..

Good point forandever I'm adding that to my list to make some aoe spells to never overlap so if they try it it will either ignore the second or more spells of the same type. Good way to fight lightning would be using spread out/loose formation and keep those units near your elite units, oh and RUN get out of its area of effect.

I tried the get out of the Lightning Storm Area.. But It was Useless.

Lightning Storm effects followed the targeted unit- My 2*lv60 royal dragon had no way to escape the area or effect of lightning storm.

Default Unadressed issues

Today I am unhappy to announce that the big patch did not address the issues of game lag especially in the human game. Slow loading, lag when just watching villagers or armies moving in vilage, super slow when marching across map to do a quest, consistant crashes and lockups before, during and after battles.

The only other game I have ever experience this on was one by Silverload which was solved by them using a different game engine.

This is a good game IF it worked properly! Figure lurching across the screen does NOT make for a fun game.

I would think that if Reverie World Studios wants Steam to stop selling their game for $4.95, then they need to make the game run well on Windows XP Pro through Windows 8.

I would suggest a much bettter game engine to start with. The one currently used by the program is NOT efficient enough when using a CPU or High end video card that processes faster that the game engine can supply the data.

Tonight`s patch fixes bigger half of the current problems you`ve reported while playing the game this past week.

And while this patch might be quite large and an important milestone - unfortunately it doesn`t include fixes some issues like multiplayer lag or multiplayer sync problems - we hope to address in the coming week though in the patch 24.

Also please keep in mind - this patch will require us to take the game server offline for a few minutes. And in addition all of you would need to get this update in order to play the game. In some cases this will require restarting Steam couple of times.

Steam sells the game for $4.95 after Reverie Worlds asks them to for promotion purposes. This usually only happens after a big patch or expansion comes out to bring in new users. Steam does not choose to sell this game at $4.95 because they think it needs to run better on Windows XP Pro or through Windows 8.

I don't know where you got your facts from. But the most accurate information I can obtain for our targeted users (gamers) is from Steam. Steam have over 65 million users and are hitting 7 and a half million users online during peak times. There are more gamers that use steam than don't. So here are the January 2014 system operating statistics from Steam users.

21.31% Windows 8
63.07% Windows 7
6.25% Windows XP
4.3% Windows Vista

So if you do the math there is only 4.062 million users that still use Windows XP out of our intended audience. Not 10 million. But that also leaves us with 57.642 million users that use these operating systems that you dislike that we do support.

But there is just more than that. As technology evolves there are features and functions that are not compatible with WinXP with how the OS was coded. Great example of this is the limitation of ram the OS system can use. (Except the 64 bit professional edition that only 0.29% of steam users use). But there are many other protocols and DX features that this OS does not support. There is quite a big list, and as this ancient OS is not supported anymore it opens vulnerabilities that can be exploited as the code to this OS will not be patched as they are found.

As I have a high end system with SLI and so do some of my friends who play we are not experiencing these issues. But also falling back to the last paragraph I wrote about the Windows XP not supporting features, there is a DX11 graphical update in the works (TBA). Windows XP does not support DX10 or 11. Another reason why this outdated OS system is not officially supported anymore.

I hope I was able to answer your questions today. I am sorry that you are having issues running the game on Windows XP Professional edition (64bit?). I would suggest you really look into the Windows 7 OS. It is really not that bad of an OS if you have mid level or above computer components. I think everyone should have the chance at playing this great game. If there is anything else I can do for you please let me know. Thank you.
