Cause of the Current Downtime

Hello folks!

Last night (or during the day for anyone in the EU), much of our infrastructure went down again. Most that went down is back online now.

We're currently still working to get everything back running properly, but since there's some waiting involved (and only so much staring at a black box you can do in one morning) I'm going to use the time to explain the cause of all of this to you, the players. Transparency is a good thing, and our new host has given the all-clear to discuss the situation.

THD infrastructure has been the target of a large, ongoing DDoS attack, of the order of >10 GB/s for some hours each day. This has completely overwhelmed our servers and taken our services out. Our main host for all our web infrastructure, who is a long term community player, host, and friend, is not able to continue hosting us as a result - it has been an incredibly expensive week for him and we are very sorry for the damage and expense caused.

However, we have negotiated new web hosting - which we were already using for game servers - and started moving everything there. Moving has been slow because a lot of the databases have to be restored from damaged backups, a lot of specialised software needs to be installed and configured, and the attacks have been ongoing. The attacker is definitely targeting THD because the attacks have followed us to the new host.

We have taken the option of DDoS protection with our new host, which has come into effect this morning, but that has required migrating almost everything behind new IP addresses, so there's a lot of reconfiguration involved. It also adds some latency to every request and costs money each month, but it's basically our only option at the moment.

If worst comes to worst and the attacks don't stop, we should be able to get a good service out anyway, once everything has been properly configured. Until then, only some services will be available. In particular, steam authentication is currently not available.

We've received no claim or threat or demand from whoever is performing these attacks. If anyone knows anything certain about them or wants to confess (and stop doing it), feel free to get in touch; however this is no time for a witch hunt in the community.

We ask our players to continue to show patience as we deal with this frustrating issue.
Thanks from everyone at THD

Infinite Authentication Update

Hey guys, steam-specific update at the moment.

Last night, parts of our system went down again.

I'm sorry to report that the part of the API that handles steam logins is currently unavailable. We're investigating what exactly has gone wrong there at the moment. Standalone logins will function just fine.

If you would like to play offline, you'll need to open up your steam apps folder and run the game directly (ie without the "steam" command line argument). Alternatively, you can download the client from the official site and run that (and just click play offline when it asks you to log in).

We're aware that the offline experience is nothing compared to the online play, but for steam-linked accounts this is currently the best we can do. We'll be working on getting the authentication fully functional ASAP.

We'll explain more about what's been causing these server troubles soon, at the moment our focus is on fixing the problem.

Cheers, and sorry again,
Max

“No other game allows you to build a castle, actively fight off invaders, and then jump onto a catapult to be flung over the walls of your rival’s castle to claim its inner sanctum as your own.”

In the beginning there was nature.

But because nature by itself was boring, god added 32 slots for players to join 2 teams and battle for domination with medieval weaponry but still with all the laws nature applied. like things falling down, not up, structures crumble when they are robbed of their foundation, things falling on players kill players, wood burns, explosives explode when lit on fire, animals may kill humans becaus they are hungry or angry, humans die when they happen to stand next to an explosion. and so and and so forth. ...

King arthur's gold was born!

i started playing KAG when my brother showed me the trailer and I was hooked, the game has come a long way and it is, quite simply: Fun. It really is just fun. this is my go-to game when i just want some easy playing but don't be deceived as the game is very deep as well and I often find myself playing this game for a few hours when i just meant to play 1 game. the different classes vary hugely and it is fun to dip in and out of different classes to suit your teams requirements. One negative point that i'd mention is that there are often noob builders who accidently (or purposefully) grief your base or build a trap that doesn't work and wastes resources. The graphics also looks great and suit the light feel of the game. I really reccomend that you play with friends as well as that just increases the fun. The different modes are good but most servers are just CTF and TTH tends to be left out, However, there are modded servers that are all unique and add a new dimension of interest into this game. For example:Juggernaut: a mode where there is one or two juggerenauts who are really powerful against the other 10 or so people. I really love this game and I suggest that you buy it in a sale if u can but I think the full price is OK but could be lower. I hope you found this review helpful and enjoy the game

This is an incredibly fun game with plenty of replayability. There are a variety of gamemodes and an active community.

PROS
- Easy to Learn, Hard to Master
- 3 Unique and Fun classes
- Several funb gamemodes
- Mod support
- Multiple ways of playing the game (the meta is flexible)

CONS
- Can be difficult to learn
- Singleplayer is a bit lackluster (This is a primarily multiplayer game after all)


All in all, I would reccomend this game 100%.

I was truely contemplating whether or not to reccomend this game or not reccomend it. There are so many detrimental points to this game that make it seem so primitive. Something I really adore of the community, is that they dont let go of a game that is already dead. This game, as you may have saw from a trailer, is a primarily competetive game (99 percent of us will want this game for the multiplayer) but there are also single player modes. While, after 3 years of development, the game HAS improved, it is still buggy as all hell and they didn't bother to fix a lot of the issues with the engine. However, despite all this, what really drew me in to play nearly 400 hours was the community. Small, infact maybe 200 or less active players, but a mostly great and welcoming community that tought me how to play properly when I first began. I have not seen another newer player in some time. The game and community nowadays is 75 percent focused on the modding community. And for good reason. TranshuManDesign, the creators, have not botherd to update this game in months. So if you want to dedicate yourself to the community at this day and age, you have to be willing to play the same game over and over and rely on the 4 or 5 skilled modders to produce more mods for you to play. However, all good things don't last forever.

Tl;Dr- This game will most likely not be updated any time soon or ever. The community is fantastic.

Pros
-Action Packed game which offers what it says it does in trailer.
- Great community that welcomes new players politely and kindly.
- Large modding community that keep the game fresh.
- Single player mode for practicing and general fun.
- 3 classes with entirely different playstyles.
- Addicting gameplay with each map in official servers being pre-generated.

Cons
- Has almost as many bugs as it did in release form.
- THD (transhuman design) Will mostly likely never do a content update on this version of the game (i am implying they might make a KAG Reborn or Sequel)
- THD has essentially moved on to other games, like trench run. A game I enjoy a lot, but was a fail on launch because of laziness.
- Community is dead and small. In some parts of the day, servers are baren.
- Awful engine that is outdated. Crashes frequently, cannot change screen size from game. Modding is buggy.
- DDOS attack on servers a few days ago is still plaguing the community and myself. I can OCCASIONALLY come on, but on other times it crashes.

So. Would I reccomend this game? Its a tough choice. All in all, it is still a good experience if you dont mind the cons. A bad experience otherwise. So, while this post says reccomended, I suggest you choose for your self from what you have read.

ok so first off. THIS IS THE BEST GAME IN THE WORLD,in my opinion unfortanatly i couldent recomend this game to any person on the planet ); so i am gonna start saying stuff. now. yay. so this game is well optimized so dont wory ppl like me (at the moment) with laptops or bad computers. mods arent garunteed togh cause there custom content. onto mods! mods are soooo easy in this game all you do is launch the game like normal go to multiplayer BLUE servers are modded servers just click on there hit play it may or may not ask you to download files if it does, click yes. then you just wait and eventually you will join. also if it says error compiling scirpts just rejoin,somtimes it does that the first time. also for people who like medival war OBVIOUSLY get this NOW no jk but its a very good simulator at it and not to realistic very well balanced.and my favorite thing i think is that everyone you see is a player NO npc's NONE NATA NOTHIN' and its completely open building also the devs are cool (: and also i found out they were gonna put custom vehicles in the game when they were first making it btw you should know this is the NEW version of kag, we jsut call it kag also the comunitites realy cool by the comunitie the people you usually see often playing the game also this game is depenent on the player base the game IS MULTIPLAYER, pretty much. and theres also classic kag wich you can download after you buy this. also you can download thi soff steam and on desura. all the kets and perms, are yours...lel. also they were gonna add custom vechicles in the game wich is cool (I mahave wrote this already) also the combats VERY unique and takes a long time to learn so please be patient. and another very good thing is that this is INFINITE replayability (bleh big words) and when i say good medival simulator i mean the pretty standerd game mode/server rounds usually take AT LEAST 1 hour. so thats what i have to say and if you see me ingame my names dredonkey. and i have a horse head. well.... please buy this and i hope to see you soon btw if you buy this because of me tell me and for reading this whole thing you get a smiley (: and everytime someone gets this its more players.. and more servers. and more playtime.. cause theres been times where i wanna do somthing and no ones there ): and this is all only $10. THE END

so i was told about this a while ago by someone and i was eager to try it out from what he told me, however it seems that certain things have been fairly overstated,
1. the community is alnost non existant -there are alsoso few servers to choose from, and even less gamemodes to play with others.
2. you have to majorly compensate for lag, no matter where the server you are guarenteed enough delay to need to preeattack by at least a second.
3 the disconnection rate is extremely high somedays all you can do is get kicked on connection errors
4. you get bnned over the mst unreasonable things (for example tabbing out when you have the respawn cooldown has whacked me with a ban for being afk

and as such the game's price is way over the top for what you get,
if it was $2.99-$4.99 it might be worth it, however $10 for a game so basic is pushing it by miles.99

on a note i got it for 6.99 or something and it still feels overpiced

The game sounded amazing but I was severly disapointed once I started playing. I think the controls could be smoother and being able to switch teams mid battle makes it too easy to grief. A fun concept, but for me it just doesn't work and got boring fast.
