All services are now back online

In order to further improve the systems that run NI we are scheduling some downtime on Saturday morning GMT.

Follow us on twitter for the fastest updates: https://twitter.com/NordInvasion


0900 - 2200 GMT/UTC (hopefully - sorry its taking longer than expected!)
[convert to my timezone]

What is happening

We are doing some massive upgrades with a view to increasing the performance of the systems, specifically the database.

This is likely to last a couple of hours as it will involve massive backups and reshuffling of systems and data. During this time all EU servers, websites and databases will be offline. This also means that no equipment or loot will be handed out to players on AU or NA servers. Additionally the primary teamspeak server will be offline. We may have a backup working - check back here for details as we will keep you posted if it's available.

When the services are back up we will update this thread, IRC and the forum as a whole. I have included a chart to help users understand the impact.

Downtime Systems Affected:

System  Status
Website  Offline
Wiki  Online
Teamspeak  Online
Forum  Online
IRC  Online
EU Servers  Offline
NA Servers  Degraded
AU Servers  Degraded

Hi all. Happy New Year again! Back by popular demand I have decided to pull together some stats like I did last year so here we go with 10 interesting stats, some the same and some different.

20.2 Million Pages
That's over 55,000 pages served up every day this year and an increase of over half a million!

Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Sailor
Crafting remains the most popular page after the character page. The redesigned auction hall however has seen a surge in its popularity and was the most popular page in December.

Region 1 baby
The source regions remain the same with USA taking the number one spot over Germany followed by the UK, Australia and Poland fill the top five. When split into sub continent however Western Europe easily trumps over North America followed by North and then Eastern Europe. Australia props up the bottom of the top 5.

You guys certainly created a huge number of characters although people are clearly much more content with their characters with a drop in 4,000.

To me! To you! To me! To you! Trading is on the up with over 23,000 extra trades set up this year.

The iPhone remains king
Although desktop users demolish mobile users (over 90% desktop!!!), the iPhone remains the most popular phone. But beware - a subtle trick by Apple devices however allows all variants to hide under one name. The iPad manages to retain second place and although the iPod too uses the trick as the others it drops to 4th place behind the HTC M7 One which takes 3rd place and proves the most popular single Android device. In manufacturer wars however Samsung takes second place over HTC (whilst Apple obviously leads).

iOS manages to retain its lead in the mobile OS wars however it has lost the crown in the monthly wars in August so expect to see Android on top next year unless Apple does something special.

Our visitor numbers are up by 23% based on last year. We saw a big boost based on the new listing of the mod on Steam but plenty came from you guys. Thanks and keep spreading the word!

Browser Wars
Chrome is the undeniable king of browsers on NI increasing 2 points to over 63%. Firefox keeps the second place crown despite falling 2 points to 23% and whilst only accounting for 5% of traffic Internet Explorer has an increase of 6.32% versus last year's usage.

By special request I can confirm that there is over 900 players with legendary items sat out there in player inventories so its clearly not impossible to get them. Keep on fighting on and this could be you next year!

Anyway this wraps up another year of stats. Hopefully you found these interesting and let us know what other stats you would like to know next year or anything else you think that people should know about in NI during 2014. See you on the battlefield!

Our latest web feature to get a rewrite is now the Trading Center.  Changes have been made which should help to streamline the day-to-day task of trading items and materials between friends and your own characters.
  • Trade invites can now be accessed from the left navigation menu no matter what trade you are currently looking at.
  • Trade invites can be sent by character name as before or by character id to prevent problems when two people in the same house have the same name.
  • Trades between your own characters do not require you to accept both sides.  They are both your characters after all.
  • If you "Add" a negative number of items to the trade, that many items will be held back.  (You have 10k gold, add -1k, 9k will be in the trade.)
  • Open trades can be closed entirely.  A message will be sent to both characters to record this.

At some point, I plan to also include a history of recent trades so that you can have a record to look back at.  I don't want to put an ETA on it yet, though, since there are still a few details that need to be considered first.

As with any rewrite, there are likely to be a few bugs lurking.  If you find any, report them to a developer and do NOT exploit them!  If it is more than cosmetic, report via PM.

If you see something that could be simplified or improved without too much trouble, feel free to suggest it here.  (Otherwise, the feature request board would be better.)

- Kip

P.S. The "improved trading infrastructure" allowed a delayed Christmas gift to be delivered!  Everyone who has played on a server since December 1st will find some Hardened Metal in one of their characters.  (One character per account.)

Today the class restrictions of many items are changing, particularly old items that had very low restrictions and certain high tier items being changed to allow hero classes from previously incompatible trees to use them.  In addition, the Legionnaires have been sent to a training camp to learn how to throw and actually manage to hit things!

Rangers can now use Grinder Helmets!
Halberdiers can now use Studded Gauntlets, Swadian Gauntlets, and Plate Mittens!
Aurora Blade now needs T3 Sergeant, Man At Arms, or Heavy Longbowman to equip
Fang of Fenrir is now only usable by Commando and Sharpshooter
Fell Edge is now only usable by Commando, Sharpshooter, and Sniper
Bolt Tosser now requires T4 Sharpshooter
Onyx Bolts now require T4 Sharpshooter
Dragon Spear now requires T4 Pikeman
Dragon Halberd now requires T4 Pikeman
Thunder Pike now requires T4 Pikeman
Sun Pike now requires T4 Pikeman
Legionnaire can now use Dragon Breath!

Legionnaire total throwing is now 250 WPF and 4 PT instead of 170 WPF and 5 PT

Merry Christmas!
