Hey again, everypony!

We've had a lot of fun sharing Equestria with you over the last couple of months, and seeing you share your experiences with us has been amazing too! We've still been working hard to bring you even more to enjoy, though, and today we've released our Hallowe'en update!

You can find a full changelog here, but there's a couple of key parts that you'll probably notice more than the others:

Firstly, we've increased the maximum number of ponies per account to 6. The original limitation was necessary when we first started out, but improvements mean more ponies for players to pick from!

Secondly, we were hearing a lot of feedback regarding the game's performance when certain parts of the UI were under a lot of strain; for example, having a lot of ponies on your friend's list causing significant drops in framerate. We want to encourage everypony to have more friends, not less, so we've worked to deal with that!

And finally (and probably most importantly), this is our Hallowe'en update, so it's only right that we'd bring some spooky costumes to the party! Word has it that the Equestria-famous costume designer Ensemble has opened up shop in the Crystal Kingdom, and has a few designs on sale - but he might have an extra special bat-related costume available for those willing to help him make it!


Be aware, though, that this quest is seasonal; it won't be around forever, so make sure you get this costume while you can! Ensemble will no longer be offering the quest after Monday, 13th November - at least until next year!

Remember, if you want to experience everything a new update has to offer, you need to make sure that you're keeping your version of LoE up-to-date! If you're using a direct download version of the game, you'll need to re-download the newest version of the game from our downloads page. If you're running on the Windows launcher version, your game should update automatically the next time you launch it!

We hope you enjoy what we've added and fixed with this update, but as always, we're still hard at work to bring you more! Remember, if you have any bugs, glitches, or suggestions to report, you should do so using the system explained here; that'll ensure the right people see your report, and get to work on it!

Speaking of work, we've got a lot more to do; we'll see you in Equestria!

Amazing work as always! Thank you for the spooky gifts!
My only gripe is that there's no way to have slit-pupils :(  Oh well, can't have it all I suppose! But who knows, maybe you guys will come up with a way to make that happen too! Contact lenses, or something!

Also, praise the stars, my prayers have been answered! More character slots! MORE PONIES FOR EVERYONE!  <3

  My quest for the bat costume stuff is broken.  D:  I have all of the stuff and it still says to go collect it. I've tried with two different ponies (1 Unicorn Mare and 1 Pegasus Filly) and the same result. I don't want to pay another 50 bits for dye.

I just don't know what went wrong. Help?

Do you have 8 twigs? The quest never really mentioned how many you needed so I imagine that might be the problem here.


While I may not be part of LoE staff, I always try to help others who might have problems in LoE the best I can because I want others to share my enjoyment of the game. ^-^

Anyone else noticed the flying is behaving weird after the update, or is it just me?

I don't have the time to go through it to the point, where I can submit a report on phabricator, but I have noticed my pony flies like drunk lately. She gets stuck in some maneuver- turn, up/down, sprint, I even once had her flying upside down. When I push a button for some other maneuver, the animation is correct, but when I release it, the pony returns to the position she was stuck in. It usually ends when I land, but I was even once or twice runing on the ground at about 30 degrees sideways...
Excuse my English, it tends to misbehave...

You'll need a total of 8 twigs , the rainbow dye , card boards and 1,000 bits ^_^

Same thing happens to me. I'll do a flip and the pony stays on the side like it's glued to an invisible wall.

Great Halloween quest, the bat costume is totally worth the 1,000 bits at the end. Thanks for the great costumes and quests.

Awh man, that means that I can't create a bat-pony, since I'm more active as my main OC and I have many MANY bits on that one. I'll turn her into a batpony I guess.

If you don't want to chat with Russians, go to Amareicas or Singapone server (america server has lowest ping for europians maybe?). You can't ban someone for speaking in their language. I don't like Russians too, but at least I respect them!

What do you what, I'm very good to Russian-speaking players, my native language is Russian) Just right after the update, it turned out that no one can chat on it, that's what I wanted to ask)
I wanted to find out if this was a bug or should it be?)

Ok, that's probably it. The quest is very non-specific. lol

This is what I'm talking about. Found out it only happens when you use arrows and RMB mode to steer your pony simultaneously  ovO
