Login, Registration, Website

A number of changes have been made to streamline the start-up experience for new players and existing players alike:

WEBSITE
The out-of-game Illyriad website has had a much needed  http://www.illyriad.co.uk/blog/index.php/2012/02/illyriad-website-redesign/" rel="nofollow - overhaul and refresh . As well as being more understandable and organised it also contains valuable information over its 57 pages. From recent  http://www.illyriad.co.uk/Community/News" rel="nofollow - News  to a  http://www.illyriad.co.uk/GameInformation/Bestiary" rel="nofollow - Bestiary  that contains  http://www.illyriad.co.uk/GameInformation/Bestiary/Undead" rel="nofollow - unit stats .

The unit tables by race also make a return for example the  http://www.illyriad.co.uk/GameInformation/Races/Humans/UnitCosts" rel="nofollow - Human Unit Costs ;  http://www.illyriad.co.uk/GameInformation/Races/Orcs/UnitStats" rel="nofollow - Orc Unit Statistics ;  http://www.illyriad.co.uk/GameInformation/Races/Dwarves/Military" rel="nofollow - Dwarf Military  or the  http://www.illyriad.co.uk/GameInformation/Races/Elves/Diplomats" rel="nofollow - Elf Diplomats .

Also included is an official repository of  http://www.illyriad.co.uk/Community/Fansites" rel="nofollow - Illyriad Fansites . If you would like to have your Illyriad fansite considered for this official listing, please submit it to community@illyriad.co.uk for review.

Together this will provide a great factual resource for players going forward whether they are old, or new or are considering whether to play and seek further information.

LOGIN
Rather than the bewildering number of buttons and drop down options on the login page, a simpler system is now in place. A drop down provides the authentication method: Choose "Email address and password" for the regular Username and Password. If you authenticate via another provider e.g. Facebook, Google or OpenID choose that from the drop-down and click "Login". As you have to provide your username as password to other providers and will have already authenticated, you can choose "remember me" to save a token to that computer for auto-login.

LOGOUT
When you log out of the game you are now returned to the login page regardless of login method - rather than being returned to Facebook or the Chrome Web Store. This will more easily allow you to login to your second account if you have one. If you are using a public computer, please ensure you have also logged out of your Facebook or Google account before vacating the computer.

REGISTRATION
Creating a new player has been greatly simplified and now immediately drops you into the game without having to re-enter all your details and login once again.

DIPLOMATIC SOVEREIGNTY
The display of diplomatic build time was incorrectly having sovereignty applied both to base unit build time and to the sovereignty build time - suggesting a double effect of sovereignty. This is now correctly only applied to the sovereignty build times.

SIEGE SOVEREIGNTY
Siege unit sovereignty is now being applied to both wall and building siege unit build times.

There are more clicks to switch between alts now, it seems. :(
I suggest a choice between my two alts on the main screen - without going through Facebook!

Much better. The content on the website, the NOT going to FB.
Thanks

There seems to be a typo in the Bestiary.  Mercenaries are described as "rouge" forces, when in fact they are violet in every browser I've played on.

The Orc Units Stats page linked in TCs post has human icons and unit names. Otherwise I think that the login page looks awesome and all the added information is a big plus :)

Fixed. 

Did I mention that our players are the best QA team we could ever ask for? :D

Sovereign squares that are supposed to give bonuses for Finishing school are still not doing so.  At least the +1 squares (Scrubland)

Login page has a very nice feel to it. Not too busy and easy to follow. Great job.

It's a vast improvement.  I can't to see the forums get the same treatment.

Will something perchance trickle down to the veterans in the near future? (Not that vets don't appreciate the new improvements, but major gameplay changers have been long in waiting - quite a lot of yearning these days)

Thanks for your hard work.
