    Greetings Adventurers! I know updates are only meant to come every two weeks, however this weekend is different. We wanted to take some time to introduce some security upgrades this week that are more than relevant to everyone online, so be sure to take a read, soak it all in and I'll see you all again next weekend for our content update!

    National Dog Day Sale (50% Off Pets)
    To celebrate National Dog Day, we've decided to host a HUGE 50% SALE on all pets for this weekend only! Along with this, there's also 35% off everything else on the store, so make sure you take advantage of this and stock up on goodies before the summer is over! Head over to the store and check out our awesome packages: buy.treasurewars.net

    Two Factor Authentication
    After many suggestions, we've taken some time to ensure that users now have the ability to further protect their account from any kind of malicious attacks. Starting today, users will have the option to enable Two Factor Authentication on their accounts. To do this, simply type /2fa on the server, and you'll be instructed on how to enable it. When enabled, this means that each time you log on with a different IP, you'll need to enter a specific code in order to access any of the realms. This feature will also be forced for every Staff member on the team, meaning you can rest easy knowing that the accounts of our Team members are safe and secure at all times.

    PLEASE NOTE: If you happen to lose access to your 2FA Generator and get locked out of your account, we will not be able to restore access to your account. Learn more here.

    VPN Prevention System

    Finally, we're putting our foot down and saying NO to users that are on VPN's. Using any kind of VPN or Anonymizer has been against the rules for quite some time, however we never had the tools in place to properly prevent it. With this update, we've deployed some incredibly smart technology to all realms, which should help to prevent over 95% of the available VPN services out there. The databases we are relying on are continuously updated every day, adding new IP's and applications to the blacklist that is now live on Treasure Wars. If you have any questions regarding this system, please don't hesitate to leave a comment, or ask an Administrator!

    Forum Sync Removal (Temporary)
    After the countless weeks of issues, bugs and reports, we've finally decided to take down the current forum syncing system, until we can find a suitable replacement for it. This system has been giving us constant grief, as it continues to remove, add and edit the wrong things every day, and that's when it decides to work at all.. We understand that many users enjoy having their realm tags here on the forums, however until we can fix the issues we're experiencing with this old and outdated system, we're forced to remove them. We will keep you guys up to date with this system as we work on finding a solution, and we'll work on bringing it back as soon as possible!
