Beta server and wipe within a few months (11th October, 2014)

Due to a large amount of players asking for a wipe and a steady decline in our playerbase we have decided that we will be wiping Olympia and starting afresh within a few months. It has been a hectic and fun run, specially the very first few months.
For now, we have upped a beta server where we will be testing new features and balances that will be in our next iteration of Helbreath Olympia. We're currently testing 800x600 resolution, market system, and Heldenian. We really encourage people to read the beta forum post here, which is kept up to date on the state and progress of the beta on a regular basis.

Balance and (no) wipe (15th March)

Hello everyone. Due to the increase in player activity in the last 2 months we've decided to not wipe. We will be doing more iterative updates rather than waiting for the 6.0 update. You should be seeing Heldenian and some quality of life improvements and fixes soon. Additionally, due to the town imbalance during automated events, the auto-balance in these has been enabled.

Olympia future (29th August)

Recently there's been other servers which have launched and a vast majority of players have chosen to either play elsewhere. I take this as a sign that Olympia has become less enjoyable than its concurrency, or that it's become stale. The population has also decreased dramatically (also partly due to DDoS attacks, and the bugs/crashes caused by the network rewrite).
For this reason I believe the best choice for Olympia's future is to new and fresher updates, with, most likely, a wipe and a beta with lots of new features.
I'm not going to lie that the most interesting moments I had with Olympia was during its first beta and the first few months of its launch. I believe Helbreath has evolved a lot through Olympia, and will continue to do so. There were lots of experiences, tests, and features which have helped decide where we want Olympia to go. In a way, I feel relieved that our players are having fun elsewhere rather than being bored at Olympia, while its population is low, or when it will be in next beta.
To be honest it's quite a bit more interesting to do updates for a wipe, add there is no restriction whatsoever in what can be implemented/experimented with. Part the reason Olympia was so successful at the start was due to that careful preparation and the malleable grounds that the beta provided, in which players could easily point out what they like and what they didn't like, and then those were promptly changed.

I'll update you guys later with additional news of what's to come. Stay tuned.

Olympia back online (8th August)

Olympia is now back online! For people using a TCP proxy, make sure you're also proxying UDP, as the game server now runs in UDP (outbound port 6334), otherwise you will not be able to get past the character selection screen. (fixed).
There may still be some players unable to get past the character selection screen. We're currently working on fixing that.

5.3 update - Network improvements and minor fixes (7th August)

The new 5.3 Olympia update features an entirely new network engine, which should greatly improve game fluidity, specially in large fights and to prevent lag spikes. I believe this has been a very needed update for long and shall work as a stepping stone for the next updates in order to make Helbreath fun and smooth. It's specially useful to know whether we should keep this engine or revert back to the old engine to avoid spending unnecessary time with the new engine if it doesn't work out. However, I do believe this new engine is superior in nearly every way, so the likelihood of reverting back to the old engine is unlikely. Note however that since there was a very large amount of code modified and rewritten, there may be bugs and even crashes, but I believe this should be well worth it in the long run. We will address these bugs and crashes as soon as (in-)humanly possible. Feedback is important, so I urge all players to fill out the network poll located here and also in-game by typing "/netpoll".

Additional feedback or comments on this matter can be posted on the forums. The other minor fixes applied to the game can be viewed here.

Information on upcoming updates (11th April)

Helbreath Olympia is still here and we are still working on fun updates which will spice up the game and give players many new objectives.
These are some of the major changes that will be in Olympia 6.0:
  • PvP arena with many features, such as ranked leagues (1v1, 2v2, 4v4), custom matches with fully-customizeable rules, etc...
  • Achievements with rewards on milestones
  • In-game market system (auctioning items, offers, ...)
  • Heldenian
  • PvM changes (new elite monsters)
  • Other smaller custom events

There's work done in all these, but none is finished. It might still be some time before these are finished, and this is why we have opted to provide a smaller update (5.2) before those are finished. The main objective of this smaller update is to provide a system for events to be hosted and rewards to be given. Click here for more information on the 5.2 update.
