My minions,

I am happy to say that after some wrestling with server internals I've sped up the statistics computations to an acceptable level.
They are now active again and won't lag the server!

This re-enables both profile-level stats and global stats there: http://te4.org/game-statistics

Have fun!

Once upon a time a mad god of darkness decided to create a game.

 

The board was set, the pieces were moving... ..and it looked like that.

Yes, time has passed since that memorable start! :)

My dear minions,

Real life is taking its toll and I will be somewhat busy in the coming weeks so I've decided to delay the addons contest end a little.
You have up to the 31 january to publish your addon!

Get cracking if you have not already done so!

Thanks, you may now resume dying ingame to strengthen my throne of tears!

I have published an update to Ashes of Urh'Rok that fixes and enhances quite a few things and in a burst of great originality I have decided to nickname it "1.0.1" :)
