The Tournament has now ended. Congratulations to the 96 alliances who participated! 

Due to an anomaly (largely in the final days on the square in Turalia), we need to reconsolidate some of the occupation times and the final results will be forthcoming shortly.

We will also be providing statistics on this very exciting event that we hope you all enjoyed!

GEOGRAPHY
'Rill Archipelago' and 'Stormstone Island' should now be shown on town menus, rather than unknown.

START-UP TIME
The Illyriad start-up time has been improved.

DAYLIGHT SAVINGS TIME
The effect of changes in time on people's local computers has been resolved. Also please note the server is always GMT/UTC and will not change timezone.

CHANGE EMAIL
You can now change the email address you have associated with your account. (On account preferences page) This is very important for password resets and for warnings about auto-abandonment. [Your email is never shared with 3-parties and we do not spam you]

MAP ZOOM ICONS
The map zoom icons at minimum and maximum zoom now correctly reflect which buttons you can press.

nice changes, I especially appreciate the ability to change the e-mail account.  Even though I don't need it, others have.

Congrats to the devs on an awesome tourney.  We had a lot of fun!!!

Wow, huge load/startup time improvement.  Care to elaborate on how?  Better hosting of external dependencies perhaps?

EDIT: It must be much more than code loading, as the whole game is way, way more snappy, including Butler running on top of it.

Remember that post-tournament mass sacrifice to the Heart of Corruption? Yeah.

Awesome Tournament --
Had a blast runnin' with my pack
I hope the next 'king-of-the-hill' style tourney has some type of league system. . .
It was a great battle in Ursor for example between a few alliances. . .only to be bullied out in the last week by [H?] <-- punks. . .

The bloodbaths of the North were enjoyable.  The fighting over Fremorn, the Wastes, and Wolgast - many of my best legions tasted both victory and defeat there...

Awesome first post!  (>.<)

But I also agree that league squares would be better.

This is the first tournament which I played in my last few months association with Illy. Loved the tourney and enjoyed the battles in Wastes, Kal Trikan and Norweld. Had great fun along with my alliance members in these squares. Expecially in Wastes and Norweld where I hold the square as single member with my army atleast for few minutes till my alliance members came or wiped out by other alliance but its just cooooollll Cool
Had faced both victory and defeat but all were sweet memories.
 
Thanks for thde devs for organizing the tourney Clap and thanks to my alliance members for fighting out together and for other alliance members who made it a tougher one.
 
Cherrs Thumbs Up
