Specific information

  • Ikariam uses "s8" 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 Theta 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.
  • Theta is active in 6 communities.
    • ThetaC (s8c) was closed in 2 communities.
    • ThetaE (s8e) was merged in 18 communities.
  • This means that there would be a total of 26 ThetaT (s8t) world servers if none were Closed nor Merged.
    • The active worlds represent:
      • 2.4691 % of the 243 total Greek alphabet servers.
      • 1.165 % of the 515 player accessible servers, excluding the specialty (Speed, Test and War) servers.
      • 1.0929 % of the 549 total player accessible servers.
      • 1.085 % of the 553 grand total number of all of the world servers.

  • 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.
