Patch Note:

  • Resolved an issue where houses were not decaying in some instances.


  • We have implemented an additional fix for the issue of House Decay not functioning correctly. Consequently, all houses have been refreshed.
  • We made this decision because if we had only fixed the issue, all houses that were in the In Danger of Collapsing (IDOC) state would have immediately fallen. We wanted to ensure fairness, so we decided to refresh all houses instead.
  • It's important to note that the decay feature had not been working as intended for several months. Therefore, you haven't missed out on any decayed houses, and those that were in the IDOC state will still likely decay over time.

Dear Valued Players,

In our journey through the world of Shards of Britannia, it's easy to get caught up in the details. Constructive criticism is important, but let's also celebrate what keeps us returning.

Let's take a moment to express our heartfelt gratitude to the dedicated developers who have generously contributed countless hours over the years to enhance our gaming experience. Now is the perfect time to share your appreciation for an aspect of the server you enjoy or offer a simple "thank you" if you prefer.

We're all part of this incredible community, and our developers are no exception. They're real people, just like you. Let's not forget this.

This thread is dedicated to sharing positive messages about Shards of Britannia, highlighting what you enjoy or love about the server. It's not the space for passive-aggressive comments or other criticism. Only positive messages are welcome.

Silent or less talkative players, we also encourage you to share your thoughts. It's important to hear from all voices in our community, both the vocal and the quietly content.

Reading feedback on this server can sometimes feel like an insurance agent after a crash — rarely get a call or a comment with good news. Let's take time in this particular thread to reverse that notion and show the better side that all players are capable of.

Thank you for being a part of our passionate community. Here's to many more adventures in Britannia! Thread:
