Sorry for the large amount of news today, but we have another thing we would like to discuss, and have a vote among the community!
So as you know from the previous news post, the problems that Buzzrikk and LordHalo caused have caused our servers to enter a state of disarray. Many towns on both servers have been disbanded and raided, and many people have lost money, items, and time.
As such, we want to give the players an option to reset both the Unleashed and Ultimate servers.
If we reset the servers, we will keep the same world seed and same spawns, but will remove AR Time, buildings, towns, money, items, research, etc. This will allow everybody to have a fresh start (considering many people lost everything they had due to these server issues), and will lighten the load on the staff. In addition, Raiding will be re-allowed, and every player will recieve a fairly substantial sum of money when they first join the server, that will allow them to immediately start making towns and rebuild their empire.
If we choose to not reset the servers, everything will stay like it currently is. The No Raiding rule will continue to stay in affect for a long time until all the towns are sorted out. Keep in mind, we as staff can not perfectly refund everybody - we will happily give a small sum of money to players that lost towns to rebuild them, but we can't possibly know exactly how much you had before all of these problems started happening.
We now open the floor for voting! Specifically, we are voting on whether the Unleashed and Ultimate servers should be reset soon. Keep in mind that our usual reset cycle is approximately 4-6 months, and we're at about 5 months since a reset for both Unleashed and Ultimate.
The poll will stay open for 7 hours until a decision is made. Please have all of your Hyperion server friends come vote, so that we may get an accurate representation!
