    Hello everyone,

    Unashamedly bumping this thread with some more info and updates.

    Due to my inactivity last year for several months the community has dwindled. I now have ample amounts of time in order to maintain and manage the server and am trying to get a player base again. The server is very stable and boasts an uptime of 99.64% in over 6 months (as listed on http://otservlist.org/ots/1578765).

    The Lottery system now occurs hourly starting 1 hour after server restart.
    The rewards are separated into tiers to keep rare prizes rare.
    Some of the possible Lottery prizes are:
    • Piggy Bank
    • Costume Bag
    • Crystal Coins
    • Decorations
    • Mount Items
    • Statuettes
    • Fansite Items
    • Double Experience Tokens (Award 24 hours double experience when used)
    • ... and more.
    A new NPC, Gonzalos, occasionally sets up a dice gambling table at Thais or Venore boat. He provides a basic dice game where you can pick high, low or the exact number in 10k stakes.

    Rookgaard has been removed and all new characters will start at level 8 in a town and with a vocation of their choice.

    All houses are now able to be viewed on the site. This makes finding a house to rent much easier.

    IMPORTANT: Due to a bug with blessings last year, existing players level 100 or higher, with a deathlist entry prior to 12th January, 2017 are eligible for a 100k compensation and 1 x Double Experience Token. Message GM Yodot in game in order to receive your compensation.

    Lastly, the first 10 players to message GM Yodot in game, saying "double me up", will receive a double experience token.

    Cheers,
    GM Yodot

    You seem like such a genuine and devoted developer. Even though your player base is very low you still deliver updates. I'd give it a shot but I have a rule for myself where I don't play real maps.
    Do you think there is a chance you'd ever create a custom RPG? Either way good luck and hopefully you get some more players. Cheers. :)

    Hi Zasranets,
    I have run custom OTs before but I feel it's a bit like opening Pandoras Box, and thus a little overwhelming to make a decent custom OT.

    YoD is still running with a 99% uptime and still with regular fixes and updates. Come try us out if you're after a low-rate, PvE OT to call home.

    Cheers,
    GM Yodot

    Is this server gonna stay open?

    Also, the random stat on item drops (all gear), only raises the def and atk by x%? or is there more (ie mana leech, +100hp, etc..)

    Also, player named Navos might be botting, he's not answering me PM's and he's gaining levels.

    Hi XeekXeek,

    This server has been running for a few years now and has no intention of ever closing down.

    The random stats on equipment only enhance existing stats, and does not create new stats. So, for eg, distance weapons can gain higher range and attack, armour can gain extra ARM rating and so on.

    As for the botters, I am working on getting them to play legitimately before I end up getting the ban hammer out. If the server population increases dramatically then I'll happily start banning botters.

    Thanks for your enquiry.

    Yodot.
