  • 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[]

    Theta (uppercase Θ, lowercase θ, symbol variants: ϴ ϑ; Greek: Θήτα) is the eighth letter of the modern Greek alphabet, derived from the Phoenician letter Teth. In the system of Greek numerals it has a value of 9. In Classical Greek θ represented an aspirated voiceless dental plosive (/t̪ʰ/), but in Koiné and later dialects it became a voiceless dental fricative /θ/. In American English the name of the letter is commonly pronounced /ˈθeɪtə/. In British English, the name is pronounced /ˈθiːtə/.

    Letters such as the early Cyrillic letter fita (Ѳ, ѳ) developed from θ.

    In its archaic form, θ was written as: a cross within a circle and later, as a line or point within a circle. According to Porphyry of Tyros, the Egyptians used an X within a circle as a symbol of the soul; having a value of nine, it was used as a symbol for Ennead. Johannes Lydus says that the Egyptians used a symbol for Kosmos in the form of theta, with a fiery circle representing the world, and a snake spanning the middle representing Agathos Daimon (literally: good spirit).

    The Egyptians also used the symbol of a point within a circle, (the sun disc) to represent the sun, which might be a possible origin of its use as the Sun's astrological glyph. It is worthwhile to note that θῆτα (theta) has the same numerical value in isopsephy as Ηλιος (Helios): 318.

    In classical Athens, it was used as an abbreviation for the Greek θάνατος (thanatos, “death”) and as it vaguely resembles a human skull, theta was used as a warning symbol of death, in the same way that skull and crossbones are used in modern times. It survives on potsherds used by Athenians when voting for the death penalty.
