Hey guys,

Our host has been having major issues with all of their servers over the past several days. We're keeping the game up as much as we can and news is posted on our Facebook page, but until those issues are resolved (for good, hopefully) the site will remain volatile. I'm really sorry about this. :(

Gobble has started redoing a significant chunk of the game's core code in order to optimize it for speed and efficiency. This is huge undertaking and will take some time, but will result in much faster load times and a lot less crashing of the site in general, and will give us room to grow.

That's right, Yorkshire Terriers are here and are the first terrier breed on Dynasty. :)

Contrary to popular opinion, Yorkies are very rarely blue and tan - the are most often born black and their black lightens to blue with age. Therefore most of your imports will be Greying Black and Tan!

True born-blue does occur in the breed, rarely, but often causes hair loss. This is something to keep in mind as you cross Yorkies with other dilution-carrying breeds, they can introduce Colour Dilution Alopecia very easily even without showing it themselves if they are not born blue.

There are some rare colours in the breed, including white points that cannot be imported, the above mentioned born-blues (Dilution), solid colours, and piebald. Non-greying dogs also occur occasionally.

Enjoy your Yorkies! Please let me know if something appears wrong with them. :)

Also, starting from now and until 11am Dynasty time tomorrow (Tuesday November 24th), all credit packages are on sale for 2-for-1! When you purchase credits, I will manually give you the other half within a few hours (if this doesn't happen, send me a message). :)

In addition to that, for the duration of the sale, if you upgrade another player you will get 50 credits towards an upgrade for yourself! These will be listed in the Cash Shop page under "banked credits" (right under the button to upgrade your account).

Cheers,
Baus

Quick 24 hour poll! What real breed would you want added soon?

Please pick one from this list that says "Pending", and post your one top pick in the comments to this news post: http://www.dynastydog.com/breed_registry/drafts/official

We have a Terrier breed being added next - this one would be after that, so keep that in mind! :)

That's right, you can import some Pommetts now if you wish to do so! :) Please let me know if something is weird/wrong with them.

And Cardigan Welsh Corgis will no longer be born infertile. That was a really annoying bug, sorry guys. :\

Cheers,
Baus

P.S: I'm still working through who won all the Halloween contests and distributing prizes - there will be a news post announcing the results once I'm all done with that. :)

It has come to our attention that some players have been trying to gain access to other players' accounts by asking them for their login details.

Do not give out your login details unless you are absolutely sure you want another person to have full access to your account - dogs, credits, messages, etc. Usually this is never.

If someone is asking for your login information and you don't know why - do not give them these details and report the incident immediately to either myself (#1) or Lorri (#4564).

Let's keep Dynasty fun and safe for all.
Cheers,
Baus

I'm sure this will come as a surprise to very few people - Lorri (#4564) has been the most recommended person for the position of a Moderator! She has graciously accepted the position, and is now officially Dynasty's first mod. I'm super excited that she's here with us - she's been a monumental help already, before even officially starting, and a great role model in the community.

Please treat Lorri with the same respect as you would treat me, or another member of the Staff team. :)

Welcome to your new position, Lorri! :)
Cheers,
Baus

Hi guys,

Dynasty was down overnight due to an issue with the server the host was having. They eventually fixed it, so everything should be back up and running now.

Sorry for the downtime!
