Specific information

  • Ikariam uses "s19" 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 the forty-four and forty-eight (25 – 44 & 48).
      • Used Greek Mortals wp and Mythological Creatures wp as names for three worlds;  forty-five through forty-seven (45 – 47).
  • 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

    Tau (uppercase Τ, lowercase τ; Greek: Ταυ [tuf] Taf) is the 19th letter of the modern Greek alphabet. In the system of Greek numerals it has a value of 300. This letter in English is pronounced [taʊ], but in Modern Greek, this letter's name is pronounced [tuf]. This is because the pronunciation of the combination of Greek letters αυ has changed from ancient to modern times from one of /aʊ/ to either /av/ or /af/ (see Greek language#Orthography).

    The symbolism of the cross was connected not only to the letter chi, but also to tau, the equivalent of the last letter in the Phoenician and Old Hebrew alphabets, and which was originally cruciform in shape.
