After a recent cybersecurity attack, Mad Otter Games took Villagers & Heroes servers offline for extensive maintenance and updates. After over two weeks offline, servers are now back up and running. To compensate players for "lost time", developers are handing out a number of in-game shop items to all who have logged in 2019. This includes XP boosts, "faster garden and animal growth rates, quicker gathering and crafting and more".
For players with active subscriptions Mad Otter Games is making up for missed calendar rewards by giving players 15 crowns per day that the game was offline for maintenance totalling 225 crowns. In addition, subscribers will also receive the XP boost and all other items that are being offered to players that have been active during 2019.
