  • Ikariam used/uses a few specialty servers for the following reasons:
    • "Speed servers" (1) (Closed) (not used often / reset after each session) - Special servers for when they needed to test changes that occured at higher levels of the game and it would have take too long at normal speed to reach those higher levels of game play or researches
    • "Global / International / Pangaia servers" (1 / 2 / 3) - Special server for players from ALL language communities to play together on the same server
    • "Asphodel / Graveyard servers" (1 / 2 / 3 / 4 / 5) - Special servers (Graveyards) for when players ghost out of the game
    • "Test servers [ 1  (Closed) /  2  (Closed) /  3  (Internal use #1) /  4  (Internal use #2) /  5  (Internal use #3) /  6  (Internal use #4) /  7  /  8  (Closed)]," - 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 with special rules, designed specifically toward in-game battles

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.
