Just a quick post to let you all know that we seem to be having some kind of issue with our network provider - this is the reason for the current outage. The team is on the case and we'll let you know when things are back up and running.
"If you build it, they will come."
- The server is entirely down as far as we can tell: could be an issue with the machine its running on, could be something else provider related.
- Achaea doesn't appear to have crashed, so that's good!
- Backups ran recently so once we're back live no real progress should be lost.
No real time frame as of yet, but fingers crossed.

Denial of service is a constant threat for any online service. There are mitigation strategies and we'll be doing all we can there. We'll be in discussions with our provider about options for the response on their end as well.

We are currently experiencing a Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attack on both Achaea and some IRE services. This means that that for the first meaningful amount of time in years, Achaea is offline and currently unavailable for play.
PLEASE BE ADVISED: ALL YOUR DATA IS SAFE AND NO BREACHES HAVE TAKEN PLACE.
At present, this attack seems to be persistent, with very few, and very short gaps in the service outage. This may mean that you will be able to connect to the game every so often, but with a great amount of lag. The game will also likely disconnect you again within minutes.
We understand that this is frustrating and incredibly inconvenient, especially in these turbulent times. Our team is currently doing their best to resolve this issue and get Achaea back online.
As soon as we return to normal service, we will be creditting everyone who logged in today (Sunday April 5th) with their full twenty daily credits for the day without requiring the renown cap.
In the meantime, the Achaea community is commiserating, chatting, and sharing many pet pictures over in the unofficial Achaea Discord! Follow this link to join in!
Double experience will run until at least the end of the coming week. We will also be looking into expanding both the cap and generation of renown once we get back to normal operating procedures.
The Reckoning will resume once Achaea is back online.
If you have any pressing questions or problems in the meantime, you can contact us directly by emailing Support@achaea.com , the team is still available to assist!
Quick update, as of this post, the game is currently live!
In case anyone is here but not online.
