Specific information

  • Ikariam uses "s20" 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.

    • Ikariam Ikariam has rendered the letter "Ypsilon" instead of "Upsilon", because it is the common transliteration in German and many other languages, and more accurately reflects the pronunciation of the letter's name in classical times.  The use of the y (upsilon) does not indicate that the letter's name is pronounced like the English word "my" [mai], but rather contains the sound of the French vowel u (as in "tu") or the sound of the German u with an umlaut (ü).
