- "Speed servers" (not used often / reset after each session) - For when they need to test changes that occur at Higher levels of the game and would take too long at normal speed to reach. These servers run at four times (4x) the normal speed when they are used.
- "Test servers (1 / 2 / 3 / 4 / 5 )" - For testing the patches before they go out to the live servers.
- "War servers [1 (reset after each round - 1 per language group) / 2 (permenant - in each community)]" - Special servers that run for 6 months at a time, run at three times (3x) the normal speed, allows Pillaging of gold and have a different set of rules compared to the normal game servers.

General information Edit
Epsilon (Ε, ε or ϵ; έψιλον) is the fifth letter of the , corresponding phonetically to a /e/. In the system of it has the value five. It was derived from the . Letters that arose from epsilon include the Roman and Cyrillic .
The name "epsilon" (ἒ ψιλόν, "simple e") was coined in the Middle Ages to distinguish the letter from theαι, a former that had come to be pronounced the same as epsilon.
In essence, the uppercase form of epsilon looks identical to Latin E. The lowercase version has two typographical variants, both inherited from
\epsilon ($ \epsilon\! $) denotes the lunate form, while
\varepsilon ($ \varepsilon\! $) denotes the inverted-3 form.
There is also aor "open e", which looks similar to the Greek lowercase epsilon. It is encoded in Unicode as U+025B ("Latin small-letter open e", ɛ) and U+0190 ("Latin capital-letter open e", Ɛ) and is used as an phonetic symbol. The lunate or uncial epsilon has also provided inspiration for the (€).
The lunate epsilon (ϵ) is not to be confused with thesymbol (∈); nor should the Latin uppercase epsilon (Ɛ) be confused with the Greek uppercase (Σ).
