I came to this game with the demise of LoU. I think it is a fantastic game! The slower pace can take some getting used to, but it is well worth it. The community is simply top-shelf.

totally awesome. get into an alliance, grow and prosper and get to 10 cities. that is the most highest honor as a single player. then there are more than 5 ways to play.... and each and every one of them are needed in an alliance. you are home and part of a special family.

one of the best games of all of the games that I have played on the computer in the last 10 years. The staff should all be proud for the time they put into the game and working out all the problem. This is a game I plan on playing for a long time

There is not another browser game like this. As a matter of fact, it is hard to believe it is a browser game at all. The depth is incredible. It also has the best community of gamers that I have ever seen. I did a lot of research on games before I tried this one, and I have not regretted it one bit. And it is definitely not pay to win.

Nope, but we are working on a second title called Age of Ascent, a space MMO that is also browser-based.

I'm not convinced to try it out just yet... I've seen and played a lot of other browser-based games and did not like them one bit.

How heavily-based will this game be on Pay-to-Win? I have always found that having the limit on how many times you can do things until you "recharge energy" was frustrating, especially when the game constants hints that you can always just go buy special coins that you can use to purchase more energy immediately....

As outlined in our principles: Illyriad.co.uk

Pay-To-Win
Yes, the dev team has bills to pay and mouths to feed but so, actually, do the players.

Games that allow "Pay-To-Win" are short-term and self-defeating for everyone.

This is XinSavior by the way, just forgot to log in when I made this post..

I'm glad to see that the you have the right mindset about microtransactions, but I've seen many other devs also say the same thing where they promise that their microtransaction strategies will not unbalance the game for those who don't pay and yet it ultimately does either because it is not balanced properly or anything.

I am not saying that this game will be like that, I am hoping for the latter because if there is a method to make a great F2P game with microtransactions without unbalancing the game, it would be awesome for both devs and players like stated in your principles. But at the same time, doing so is going to be a hard task, which is why I am highly skeptical.

This is a promising looking game overall and I would never try and discourage anyone with such talent and passion to design a game and put their heart into it. I wish you the best and I will check up on the status of this game and try it out every now and then. :)

A wonder game, where older players keep guiding, sending free resources, and support with whatever it takes!
A real passtime, without wanting to waste real money.
enjoy... it gets addictive
