If you were looking forward to selecting your duchy in Chronicles of Elyria today, we have bad news for you, as the development staff has decided to delay land selection at the ducal level for a week. Worse yet, since it happens when you still haven’t picked your land, you can’t even express something to the effect of, “Duke Trab of such-and-such land is angered by this delay!” The delay wasn’t even announced until yesterday evening. It’s a sad day to be a pretend duke in a made-up land.
The official announcement cites the technical difficulties already encountered during land selection along with the DDoS attacks that the servers have struggled under. In hopes of mitigating everything, the land selection process will begin on May 13th, with all eligible players retaining the same relative position for picks as before the week-long delay. So it’s an inconvenient delay, but hopefully not the sort that would inspire any aspiring dukes to mercilessly tax the peasantry in a fit of pique.
