Future of 9Dragons – DzoGames Cuu Long Tranh Ba

June 13, 2012

The land of 9Dragons see’s another new publisher which brings the total number of publishers to 6(+1).

1. 9Dragons Korea
by LiveGamerAsia

2. D9 Online (Service Shutdown : 28th June 2012)
by Winner Online

3. 9ДРАКОНОВ
by Aurora Interactive

4. 9Dragons DE / FR / EU
by GamesCampus EU

5. 9Dragons USA
by Games Campus USA

6. Play9D (Private server based on EU March 2012 version) –
(http://play9d.com)

and finally

7. Cửu Long Tranh Bá – Ngày về
by ZdoGames 

Zdo Games, one of Vietnam’s largest game publisher plans to launch 9Dragons in July 2012 and could be reason behind GamesCampus USA’s recent Vietnam IP block.

Lets compare the popularity by facebook likes (Korea is not included because of region restriction,  the private server has a hard time keeping its services up):

1. D9 Online – 8 Likes
2. 9ДРАКОНОВ – 3 Likes
3. 9Dragons DE / FR / EU – 887 Likes
4. 9Dragons USA – 7,453 Likes
5. Cửu Long Tranh Bá – 6,419 Likes

6000+ likes is pretty impressive for a server which is not even up. The VN server has generated more likes than the EU version and is roughly 1500 likes short of the USA version, which has been up for almost a year now.

Looking at the server statistics:

Photobucket

The situation is mostly because of the Private server stealing all the players from the official versions with a few remaining players as described by the players of the USA version:

Photobucket

The situation is no different at the EU version, according to the ranking (http://9dragons.gamescampus.eu/ranking/index) roughly 80% of the players are Vietnamese.

When the server goes live, ZdoGames may ask Zerodin to enforce an IP block across all other non vietnamese publishers and with Vietnamese time suited events, payment methods and administration (where they dont have to face insults like “rice eating dogs” ) the USA/EU versions will take another hit and perhaps a final hit from which recovery might not be possible.

CLTB and Age of Wulin may very well be the final blow to 9Dragons in the west. Brace for impact everyone bumpy ride inbound…

Update:

The FB page of CLTB now has 15,485+ likes, looks like they are generating great interest over there, while the opposite happens at the USA servers.

9Dragons EU – Loulan (Nuran) Map

March 15, 2012

GM Camlost:

Dear Dragons,

we will patch the server this Wednesday (2012/03/14) between 8am and 1pm CET.This Update will bring a lot of new things, below are first details about the content.

New Map Loulan

In the spirit of the Guide-Event we have compiled an extensive guide about all features of the new map, you can check it out HERE.

Key Features:

– Roughly the same level as Tibet
– Loulan is PVP-enabled
– Contains one Dungeon
– Mobs give more XP

Tibet Weapon-Collections

Redesign of our Homepage incl. new things, e.g.:

– Playerranking
– Overview over Heroleagues/bands
– Overview over available Masters

New Support-System
As a part of our website-relaunch we will give our support-staff a brand new Support-System so that they can work more efficiently. For you this means better Support but also these two things:

– In order to have a clean transition between the systems we will disable submitting new tikets from now until the new system is live tomorrow.

– With the new Support-System all communication will be based on e-mails. Zhis opens up a whole lot of improved possibilities but also means that you have to provide a valid address in order to receive support.

You can check your current address HERE as well as change it.

These are just the first glimpses of the new things to come, we will tell you more tomorrow and the last big things will be announced on the patchday

To a nice Patch!

9Dragons GamesCampus Database Compromised

February 22, 2012

Camlost :

Dear users of GamesCampus,

We are joining the ranks of many games publishers who have recently fallen victim to a datamining attack. An individual or group of hackers have managed to gain access to the GamesCampus player-database.

The hackers have stolen a list of usernames, associated email addresses and the hashed passwords. No other information has been accessed. Especially your purchasing information is not stored in our databases and therefore remains completely secure.

While the stolen passwords have been encrypted and are thus of very little use to the hackers, we strongly recommend changing your passwords at your earliest convenience.

Your security is very important to us. We have immediately patched out the security fault in our database servers.

We apologize in advance for any inconvenience this may have caused you, and would like to reaffirm you that we are doing everything to prevent this kind of exploits and attacks.

Additionally we have made a Q&A that contains answers to most questions that you might have now. You can find it here.

Your team from GamesCampus.

No credit card or bank information is affected, please change your passwords immediately.

Patch 38 – New Event Map for 9Dragons EU

October 12, 2011

Posted by GM Camlost:

Hi guys,

we are proud to present you the contents of the first patch for this month. This patch sets the stage for the big content-patch at the end of the month.

In order to apply this patch we are going to have a server maintenance next Thursday (2011/10/13) between 9 am and noon.

The patch has two main features:

1. Improvements for new Dragons in Zhangzhu

We want new players to have a good start into the world of 9Dragons and therefore we have implemented some instructional videos that show some of the core mechanics of the game into the map Zhangzhu.

2. The introduction of a new Event: The trial of the dragon (‘Die Prüfung des Drachen’)

Photobucket

Starting with the patch, the exit to Bloody Plain from Hefei will also lead to the Tempel of the trial (‘Tempel der Prüfung’). There you have the opportunity to participate in a quiz-event at announced times that will be worth your time

Anyone can participate, all you need to do is come to the map ‘Tempel der Prüfung’ at the announced time. There you’ll get two kinds of questions: OX-questions and multiple choice-questions.

The OX-questions are answered by walking: After the question is out you have 60 seconds to get to the answer-zone of your choice!

Photobucket

After each round all players that chose the wrong answer or did not answer will be ported out of the competition-area and receive a gift for participation that gets bigger as the rounds progress.

All players that are still in the game after 10 rounds are winners and receive an appropriate gift for this feat. All winners then roll a dice to decide who gets the ultimate grand price. Additionally all players that are on this map will get a strong buff once the event ends.

We are planning on doing this event three times per month once in German, French and English. The final dates for this and a list of prices will be announced some time before each event.

Finally this patch contains some minor text and bug-fixes.

We hope you’ll enjoy this patch a lot!

Patch 34 – The Giant Chicken Cometh

August 16, 2011

Posted by GM Camlost:

Hi guys,

tomorrow (2011/08/16) between 9 and 11 am CEST we will take down the servers in order to apply Patch 34. This patch has three main components. First off it should fix those annoying map-crash-issues we had since the start of the European server. Secondly it will restart the SvS-Battle for the Map Hangzhou. And third it will offer you a new ingame-event:

Giant Chicken Invasion!

Photobucket

All over the land giant chicken are appearing. Should you manage to find one and kill it, you will receive chicken soup that gives a nice stat-boost. The chicken become more powerful depending on the area they are in but their soup becomes increasingly delicious!

Happy hunting!

9Dragons EU gets Anh Labs HackShield

July 28, 2011

Photobucket

Posted  by Camlost

Dear Dragons,

we thought to ourselves: One servermerge is not enough for us, that is just too easy. We need a real challenge!

So we decided to additionally exchange our anti-hacking-tool in this patch. Patch 32 delivers Hackshield to all clients after the merge is done. The reason for this change is mainly that Hackshield has less compatibility issues and is overall a very stable solution. We think you are going to like this change.

Clan Gamescampus

So, where does this put GamersFirst who haven’t been able to get a working (if existing) anti-hack for 7 months?
