Hello players of Albion,

I would like to introduce you to all the upcoming changes for Season 16. We are completely overhauling castles, with new layouts and treasure chests spawning through the entire week. And we are also adding an additional 5v5 non-lethal Crystal League, which in conjunction with the new Crystal Arena should lower the entry barrier for Crystal League and bring in more players.

Castle / Castle Outpost Overhaul
For Season 16 we overhauled Castles completely, and vastly improved the Castle visuals in two entirely new layouts. And Castles now spawn high value chests throughout the entire week. Every 3 hours, every Castle and Castle Outpost has a chance to spawn a chest. This chest has a random value, which is broadcast globally one hour before it can be opened. Since all these spawns still stay synchronized, the largest power blocks can’t contest all chests without splitting up, which also allows mid-sized guilds to contes... Read more

Hi all,

following up on our recent dev talk about the upcoming Into the Fray expansion, we would like to provide you with more information about the so-called “Journey Back” Ability that will be added to mounts.

Design Goals & Constraints

The main reason why we are introducing this change is to combat zone camping. This is a strategy used by gank groups who camp at a static location near the portals in order to catch solo or small group players when they return from the Outlands to the Royal Continent.

Ganking is an integ... Read more

Hello everyone,


If you have started the test server since the new update got deployed there, you might be unable to enter yellow, red, or black zones on the live server.

This bug happens if you disabled the popup notifications for the respective zone types on staging.


How to fix it:

Go to your settings (on live) -> Notifications

1. Find the "Entering a (type) Zone" notification for the respective zone and click on the x next to it

2. If that doesn't fix it for you, then reset your notifications settings. You can find that option at the bottom right.

This issue is being looked into and we will fix it as soon as possible.


We apologize for the inconvenience!
