Specific information

  • Ikariam uses "s5" 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 through fifty-three (45 – 47, 49, 51 – 53).
  • 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.

Statistical information

  • The Active Epsilon world makes up:
    • 1.9231 % of the 52 named worlds, excluding the specialty (Speed, Test and War) servers.
    • 4.1667 % of the 24 named (used) Greek alphabet servers.
  • Epsilon is active in 13 communities.
  • This means that there would be a total of 33 EpsilonT (s5t) world servers if none were Closed nor Merged.
    • The active worlds represent:
      • 5.3498 % of the 243 total Greek alphabet servers.
      • 2.5243 % of the 515 player accessible servers, excluding the specialty (Speed, Test and War) servers.
      • 2.3679 % of the 549 total player accessible servers.
      • 2.3508 % of the 553 grand total number of all of the world servers.
    • Each Active individual community that has the Epsilon server is 7.6923 % of the group of 13 .

General information

Epsilon (uppercase WP Ε, lowercase WP ε or lunate WP ϵ; έψιλον) is the fifth letter of the Greek alphabet WP, corresponding phonetically to a close-mid front unrounded vowel WP /e/. In the system of Greek numerals WP it has the value five. It was derived from the Phoenician letter WP He WP. Letters that arose from epsilon include the Roman E WP and Cyrillic Е WP.

The name "epsilon" (ἒ ψιλόν, "simple e") was coined in the Middle Ages to distinguish the letter from the digraph WP αι, a former diphthong WP that had come to be pronounced the same as epsilon.

In essence, the uppercase form of epsilon looks identical to Latin E. The lowercase version has two typographical variants, both inherited from medieval Greek handwriting WP. One, the most common in modern typography and inherited from medieval minuscule, looks like a reversed "3". The other, also known as lunate WP or uncial epsilon and inherited from earlier uncial writing, looks like a semicircle crossed by a horizontal bar. While in normal typography these are just alternative font variants, they may have different meanings as mathematical symbols. Computer systems therefore offer distinct encodings for them. In Unicode WP, the character U+03F5 "Greek lunate epsilon symbol" (ϵ) is provided specifically for the lunate form. In TeX WP, \epsilon () denotes the lunate form, while \varepsilon () denotes the inverted-3 form.

There is also a Latin epsilon WP or "open e", which looks similar to the Greek lowercase epsilon. It is encoded in Unicode as U+025B ("Latin small-letter open e", ɛ) and U+0190 ("Latin capital-letter open e", Ɛ) and is used as an IPA WP phonetic symbol. The lunate or uncial epsilon has also provided inspiration for the euro sign WP (€).

The lunate epsilon (ϵ) is not to be confused with the set membership WP symbol (∈); nor should the Latin uppercase epsilon (Ɛ) be confused with the Greek uppercase sigma WP (Σ).
