Specific information

  • Ikariam uses "s1" in its URL as the server designation for this world, no matter which community / language version you use.
    • Ikariam:
      • Used the Greek Alphabet  wp as names for the first twenty-four (1 – 24) worlds.
      • Used Greek Immortal deities wp as names for the next twenty (20) worlds;  twenty-five through the forty-four (25 – 44).
      • Is currently using Greek Mortals wp and Mythological Creatures wp as names for the next group of worlds;  forty-five and above (45 – 47).
  • Ikariam uses a few specialty servers for the following reasons:
    • "Speed servers" (Closed) (not used often / reset after each session) - Special servers for when they need to test changes that occur at higher levels of the game and it would take too long at normal speed to reach them.  These servers run at four times (4x) the normal speed when they are used.
    • "Test servers {[ 1  /  2  (Closed) /  3  (Internal use #1) /  4  (Internal use #2) /  5  (Internal use #3) /  6  (Internal use #4)]}," - Special servers for testing the beta wp patches before they go out to the live servers.
    • "War servers [ 1  (Closed - Rounds #1 – #7) (reset after each round - 1 per language group) /  2  (Permanent Round #8 - Open in most communities until 2028)]" - Special servers that run at three times (3x) the normal speed, allows Pillaging of gold and have a different set of rules when compared to normal game servers.

General information

Alpha (uppercase Α, lowercase α; ἄλφα, álpha, modern pronunciation álfa) is the first letter wp of the Greek alphabet  wp.  In the system of Greek numerals  wp, it has a value of 1.

It was derived from the Phoenician wp and Hebrew  wp letter aleph wp - an ox  wp or leader  wp.

Letters that arose from alpha include the Latin  wp A  wp and the Cyrillic  wp letter А wp.

In English, the noun "alpha" is used as a synonym for "beginning", or "first" (in a series), reflecting its Greek roots.
