Specific information

  • Ikariam uses "s2" 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 worlds(1 – 24).
      • Used Greek Immortal deities WP as names for twenty-two (22) worlds;   twenty-five through forty-four, forty-eight and fifty (25 – 44, 48 & 50).
      • Used Greek Mortals WP and Mythological Creatures WP as names for four worlds;   forty-five through forty-seven, forty-nine, fifty-one and fifty-two (45 – 47, 49, 5153).
  • Ikariam used/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

Beta (UK: /ˈbiːtə/, US: /ˈbeɪtə/; uppercase: Β, lowercase: β, or cursive WP ϐ; Ancient Greek WP: βῆτα, romanized WP: bē̂ta or Greek WP: βήτα, romanized: víta) is the second letter of the Greek alphabet WP.  In the system of Greek numerals WP it has a value of 2;  such use is denoted by a number mark: Β′.  In Ancient Greek WP, beta represented the voiced bilabial plosive WP /b/.  In Modern Greek WP, it represents the voiced labiodental fricative WP /v/.  Letters that arose from beta include the Roman letter WPB WP⟩ and the Cyrillic letters WPБ WP⟩ and ⟨В] WP⟩.

Like the names of most other Greek letters, the name of beta was adopted from the acrophonic WP name of the corresponding letter in Phoenician WP, which was the common Semitic WP word *bait ('house').  In Greek, the name was βῆτα bêta, pronounced bɛ̂ːta in Ancient Greek.  It is spelled βήτα in modern monotonic orthography and pronounced ˈvita.
