Because of high importance of this post, we are exceptionally posting it in four language versions: English, Spanish, Portuguese and Polish.
As you may have already noticed, in the past days we've been a target of some criminal who attempted to impersonate the administration to take over others' accounts. He created characters with names implying they might belong to Tibiantis staff and then messaged players saying he needed them to enter a certain link in order to confirm they were not cheating. That link was obviously a hacklink, it led to a fake site which looked like the original. The trick was to make people leave their accounts credentials there. However, his criminal activity goes much further. He also began to send mails (still pretending to come from us) in which he demanded players to download and run some Android application, most likely a bank trojan. He also had been trying to blackmail and threaten us with DDoS attacks, which he in fact launched but thanks to our protection - with zero impact on the server. Therefore we want to once again remind: - We NEVER ask players to enter any links! if you were messaged that you're being "verified for cheating" and have to go to some link - it's a SCAM! - We NEVER ask players to download anything! if you were messaged or e-mailed to do so - it's a SCAM! Keep in mind that e-mail address of the sender can be spoofed! It may even look like belonging to our domain, but it's not! - The only charactes of the staff have nicknames: Kay, Lord, Xioniz. If ANY character other than these three messaged you saying he is from the staff - it's a LIE! - The only discord accounts of the staff are: Kay#3144, Lord#9241, Xioniz#3267. If ANY other messages you saying he is from the staff - it's a LIE!
Please, be careful to protect yourself and spread the word to protect your friends. The whole criminal activity of that individual was already reported to the police with his home IP address. If you received any suspicious message, especially via e-mail, or if you have any other useful information - let us know! If you have any doubts - contact us.
Como ya se habrán dado cuenta, en los últimos días hemos sido atacados por un criminal que ha intentado impersonar a la administración para robar las cuentas de otros jugadores. El había creado personajes con nombres que se asemejan al Staff de los Tibiantis y luego escribió mensajes a los jugadores diciendo que necesitaban que accedan a un enlace para confirmar que estos no estén haciendo trampas. El enlace era obviamente un link de hackeo (hacklink), que luego redireccionaba a un sitio falso que se veía casi similar al original. El truco era hacer que las personas introduzcan las credenciales de sus cuentas. Sin embargo, su actividad criminal va más allá. El también comenzó a enviar e-mails (Aun pretendiendo hacerse pasar por el Staff) en el cual demandaba a los jugadores a descargar y ejecutar una aplicación para Android, que probablemente era un Troyano Bancario. También intento chantajearnos y atacarnos con ataques de tipo DDoS, que de hecho lo hizo pero no tuvo ningún impacto gracias a nuestras medidas de protección. Todo esto nos hace querer recordarles que: - NUNCA pediremos a nuestros jugadores que abran un enlace! Si alguna vez reciben un mensaje diciendo que están siendo evaluados por "trampas" y deben abrir un enlace - Es un FRAUDE. - NUNCA pediremos a nuestros jugadores que descarguen algo! Si alguna vez reciben un mensaje o e-mail diciendo que descarguen algo - ES UN FRAUDE! Recuerden que la dirección de e-mail del remitente puede haber sido robado/forjado. Puede inclusive parecerse a nuestro dominio pero les aseguro que no lo es. - Los apodos de los personajes del Staff son: Kay, Lord, Xioniz. Si CUALQUIER personaje fuera de estos tres les escribe diciendo que son del Staff, NO SON ELLOS. - Las únicas cuentas de discord del Staff son: Kay#3144, Lord#9241, Xioniz#3267. Cualquier otro usuario diciendo que es del Staff - Es un impostor.
Por favor, sean cuidadosos y por favor divulgan el mensaje para proteger a sus amigos. Los hechos criminales de esta persona ya fueron denunciados a la policía y si reciben algún mensaje sospechoso especialmente a través de e-mail, o si cuentan con alguna otra información útil, ponte en contacto con nosotros!
Como vocês podem ter notado, alguns dias atrás, nós viramos um alvo de algum criminoso que tenta se passar por alguém da administração, para tentar roubar contas de terceiros. Ele criou personagens com nomes que induzem a pensar que são pessoas ligadas a administração do Tibiantis, mandando uma mensagem dizendo para os jogadores que ele precisam entrar em um certo link para confirmar que eles não estão usando cheat/trapaças. Esses links obivamente são hacks, que levam para um site falso que parece com o original. O truque era fazer com que as pessoas informassem as credencias da sua conta. No entanto, sua atividade criminosa vai muito mais além. Ele também começou a enviar emails (ainda fingindo ser parte da administração do Tibiantis) no qual ele pediu para os jogadores baixarem e usarem um aplicativo Android, muito provávelmente um trojan para pegar banco de dados. Ele também tentou nos chantagear e nos ameaçar com um ataque DDoS, no qual de fato, ele tentou, mas graças as nossas proteções ouve zero impacto nos servidores. Portanto queremos informar mais uma vez: - NUNCA iremos pedir aos jogadores para entrar em qualquer tipo de link! Se você recebeu uma mensagem que você está sendo "checado/verificado por trapacear" e tem que ir em algum tipo de site ou através de email, é um GOLPE/SCAM! Tenha em mente que, endereços de emails podem ser forjados. Podem parecer com nossos domínios, mas não é! - Os unicos personagens/chars que a administração do Tibiantis possuí são: Kay, Lord, Xioniz. Se QUALQUER outro personagem além desses três, te mandar uma mensagem dizendo que é da staff - é uma MENTIRA! - As unicas contas do Discord da administração são: Kay#3144, Lord#9241, Xioniz#3267. Se QUALQUER outro personagem além desses três, te mandar uma mensagem dizendo que é da staff - é uma MENTIRA!
Por favor, tenham cuidado para se protegerem, e espalhem essa mensagem para proteger seus amigos. Toda essa atividade criminosa foi reportada a polícia. Se você receber qualquer mensagem suspeita, especialmente via e-mail, ou se souber de qualquer outra informação útil, nos informe! Se você tiver quaisquer dúvidas, entre em contato conosco.
Jak być może już zauważyliście, byliśmy ostatnio celem ataków przestępcy, który próbował podszywać się pod administrację, żeby przejmować konta innych graczy. Tworzył postaci z nickami mającymi sugerować, że należą one do administracji, po czym wysyłał graczom wiadomości, że są "weryfikowani przez system" i muszą wejść w dany link i potwierdzić, że nie cheatują. Ten link to był oczywiście hacklink, prowadził do strony upozorowanej by wyglądała jak oryginalna, żeby przekonać graczy do zostawienia tam swoich numerów kont i haseł. Ale to tylko część jego kryminalnej działalności. Zaczął też wysyłać graczom maile, w których (wciąż podszywając się pod administrację Tibiantisa) domagał się od graczy ściągnięcia i uruchomienia aplikacji na Androida, najprawdopodobniej będącej trojanem bankowym. Próbował także nas szantażować atakami DDoS, jednak dzięki naszej ochronie nie miały one żadnego wpływu na działanie serwera. W związku z powyższym, chcielibyśmy jeszcze raz przypomnieć: - NIGDY nie prosimy graczy, żeby wchodzić w jakieś linki! jeżeli dostałeś wiadomość, że jesteś "weryfikowany pod kątem cheatowania" i musisz wejść w jakiś link - jest to OSZUSTWO! - NIGDY nie prosimy graczy, by coś ściągali! jeżeli dostałęś wiadomość, albo maila, żeby to zrobić - jest to OSZUSTWO! Proszę pamiętać, że adres e-mail nadawcy może być spoofowany w taki sposób, by wyglądał jakby miał naszą domenę! Dlatego należy być szczególnie uważnym. - Jedyne postaci administracji to: Kay, Lord, Xioniz. Jeśli jakakolwiek inna postać wysłała ci wiadomość, twierdząc że jest od administracji - jest to KŁAMSTWO! - Jedyne konta na discordzie należące do administracji to: Kay#3144, Lord#9241, Xioniz#3267. Jeśli ktokolwiek inny wysyłał ci wiadomość, twierdząc, że jest od administracji - jest to KŁAMSTWO!
Prosimy, bądźcie uważni, żeby się chronić i powiadomncie swoich znajomych. Cała działalność kryminalna tego osobnika została już zgłoszona policji. Jeżeli dostaliście jakiekololwiek podejrzane wiadomości, zwłaszcza e-mail, lub posiadacie inne informacje mogące być pomocne - dajcie nam znać! Jeśli macie jakieś wątpliwości - skontaktujcie się z nami.
Dear Players, we'd like to remind you about tomorrow's content update! Tomorrow after the server's save (Sunday 09:00 CET) game world will stay offline for a few hours. We will announce the exact hour of relaunch atleast 30 minutes in advance.
Dear Players, we are happy to announce the first Tibiantis content update! The update will be released on Sunday 21st March. Please be aware game server may be down for up to a few hours after server's save that day due to changes being made.
Meanwhile we are presenting a short trailer of the upcoming update.
Dear Players, technical update has been made to the game client. New option is now available in 'extra options' menu accessed via the small '+' button just above fight stances icons.
New position titled "TCP No delay" will be enabled by default. After internal tests we have a big hope it may, together with a few tweaks on the server's side, significantly reduce your latency and improve overall experience.
Those tweaks ensure your client exchanges messages with the server with no additional delays. Let us know if the game feels more smooth now!
Please note that in the same time it may also increase data traffic. This should not be an issue though, unless your Internet connection is paid per data traffic. You may then want to disable the new option. Disabling or enabling requires re-logging in order to be applied. In any other case we suggest to keep it enabled for better experience.
Although the results of our tests were satisfying, be aware there is no magic involved and it may reduce your latency to a certain degree but distance from the host and your routing will still play major role. That being said, we always recommend to optimize your connection, e.g. by using dedicated services for gamers. We also want to remind that other settings are important too. If you experience a small lag after changing walking direction each time, it is most likely because of your keyboard properties. To fix that, adjust your repeat delay to the shortest and repeat rate the fastest.

Let your game client update to 1.45 version or download it from the website.
Dear Players, we're presenting the second and main teaser of the upcoming update.
Aruthang is an archipelago located in The South Seas. Only the biggest island - of the same name - is currently inhabited. It is the most recently discovered land. The first people to come to the island were the crew of Battuta's Ibn Kazzan expediton after they had strayed from the course during a storm. Their mission was to plot out a direct sea route between Darashia and Thais through the untamed south waters. Although the King had refused patronage over the expedition, Darashians still believed a much quicker and cheaper connection would get King's attention and improve their situation. They felt they were treated neglectfully and sought relief because of the unsolved case of the graveyard ruins of Ankrahmun, where seemingly necromancers of Drefia are rising an undead army.
But even disappearance of Battuta's ship - the first-born son of Caliph - did not affect the King, who himself is desperately focused on breaking the rebellion and planning to move forward in the war against orcish hordes. Rumours have it he also fears The Dark One may come back once again. Help came from the side of Venore, the city of traders and great sailors. Venorean people are always looking for new ways to grow their independence from the Kingdom. Although it was widely considered wasteful, their policymakers thought that Darashians' loyalty might later pay off in that matter. So they offered their help in organizing search mission to rescue Battuta, as Caliph never stopped believing he was still alive.
The common Venorean-Darashian rescue expedition left the port of Venore under the command of a young and ambitious Captain Lionheart. The course of their journey and how they would find the island is unknown, but the ship eventually arrived in the new land, which would later be named Aruthang. They found five survivors of Battuta's party. Three more were reported to have died on the island, of which one was Battuta himself, to despair of Caliph. All the others were apparently taken by the irreconcilable sea.
The newly discovered archipelago quickly became an object of interest for Venoreans, where again they saw a chance for an expansion of their influence. Several other expeditions arrived in Aruthang and concluded rich mineral deposits of unknown origin. The new colony was oficially settled. As a part of Thaian Kingdom, the Venoreans were obligated to notify the King and so they did in a short note. However they did not mention about them having hired a party of dwarven miners to drill down the tunnels. Whether the King has already been made aware is unsure, as he hasn't yet made any statement regarding Aruthang. It seems that Venore balances in its politics very deftly, taking advantage of all the King's current affairs. Atleast for now. It is also believed only the sailors of Venore are competent and brave enough to dare the element of the southern waters.
Speaking of the tunnels, the geology of Aruthang is unusual as compared to the continent. It consists of layers that visuably differ from each other in terms of hardness and presence of minerals. Only the dwarves were able to establish the mines, but not without issues. Currently four mines operate everyday under custody of Gedor Otad from the Savage Axes. Port town is managed by humans, with Mark Helmsman being the one in charge and responsible for orders from the mother land.
On the island there are many species of plants that are not seen anywhere else. But it is mostly known for grapefruits plantation, which makes a great part of Aruthang's export. Dwarves' subject of study are also unknown species of mushrooms found in the caves. Despite their clear free market views Venoreans charged the transport. That does not only include riches and minerals. They keep records of the whole flow of goods, which is probably due to the presence of dwarves. Although no one would openly admit, it is quite apparent the two sides don't fully trust each other.
Surprisingly, two of the castaways refused to go back. In recognition of their service, the Caliph relieved them of any duties. They still live in their survivors shelters and by the island society are considered rather harmless lunatics.
Fishing is important but not crucial. Meat is obtained from sheep that also live wild and are often hunted by kobolds - the humanoid race that inhabits the island. It is unclear whether kobolds are native inhabitants or had come to the island earlier. So far, not many contact attempts have been made. Kobolds are hostile to those who get too close to their dwellings, but they don't seem to attend the other parts of the island, therefore are not considered a big threat for now.
Threat comes mostly from beneath. Strange and savage specie has been found deep in the cavern under the well shaft. For that reason, the only well had to be closed and the colony still suffers lack of running water. Venore plans to greatly increase expenses on the military in further expansion of the colony.
Mines are often raided by another strange race of greeny and short creatures. Despite their huge lower teeth, those are rather harmless. Although several weak attacks on sleeping dwarves were noted.
Legend also has it that deep in the underground gigantic worms have their dens, from which at night they drill upwards with a cracking sound, to stick out of sand and grab the victim in the blink of eye. Only to hide deep in the earth for next months. The story was first told by one of the survivors. According to his words, a giant worm had eaten one of the others the first night. But there is no evidence whatsoever, and considering all survivors suffered from fever and scurvy, it most likely was merely a hallucination.
Rumours or not, only gods know what else may lurk in the deepest layers and which the greed of two races may one day unleash.
