Happy 3rd Birthday, Star Stable! Presents for everyone!

Birthday presents EVERY DAY!
Every day this birthday week there's a new task to complete, which you get started with by talking to the special Birthday Leader in Fort Pinta. Complete the task and get a special birthday present!

Log in every day to complete all 7 tasks, and all the prizes add up to an entire new set for both you and your horse! What's more, this birthday extravaganza and all the amazing prizes are for absolutely everybody, even if you're not a Star Rider!

  • In order to do these birthday tasks, you need to have completed the quest at the very beginning of the game where you've given Thomas Moorland the papers from Jasper.

Birthday races EVERY DAY!
Every single day, there's a different birthday race for you to compete in, with a seriously awesome prize each day! Talk to the Birthday Leader in Fort Pinta to find out where the races are going to happen, and once you complete them, you'll be rewarded with a whole heap of XP for your horse!

The first race takes place in Fort Pinta, which means that this one race and its awesome XP reward is available for absolutely everybody, even if you're not a Star Rider!

  • In order to take part in these birthday races, you need to have previously completed the race at each of the birthday week locations. For example: to run in the Fort Pinta birthday race, you need to have completed it at least once before, and so on for each of the different races.

Awesome new music from JA at Fort Pinta Disco!
Perfectly timed to match our birthday celebrations, it's now time to truly get the party started at Fort Pinta Disco from this Friday with brand new music from YouTube sensations JA! Coming up on Fridays and Saturdays it's time to turn up the volume and enjoy two of their awesome songs: their new single "Caroline" plus a brand new song called "These Days", which the boys have made exclusively available to you, our incredible Star Stable players!

Anton and Jonas from JA can't wait for you to hear their songs!

The boys have sent some epic posters to the Guard at Fort Pinta so that they can get the word out about their brand new music. Head over there right away and help him put them up all over town! The boys from the band have arranged some special in-game merchandise for you as a thank you for helping them!

Don't forget that you can change the song you hear playing at the disco just by moving from one part of the dancefloor to another.

Amazing birthday shopping!
Special birthday shops have popped up in Fort Pinta, Silverglade Village, Moorland and Jarlaheim. They'll be selling yummy food for your horse as well as super-exciting birthday fireworks!

Gigantic birthday cake!
There's only one thing better than cake, and that's a gigantic cake! In Firgrove, there's an enormous birthday cake and you can buy a tasty sweet slice for just 10 Jorvik Shillings! There are tables in Firgrove where you can sit down and enjoy your birthday treat, or you can even take it to munch on at any of the cafés around Jorvik! Good news for cake lovers: you can buy as many slices as you like, but only one at a time...!

Beautiful birthday fireworks!
So you're thinking "I've been to the birthday shop and bought some fireworks, what now?"... Well you fire them up into the sky of course! You can do this in Silverglade Village, in Fort Pinta, and in Moorland. Be safe with those fireworks!

What?! There's more?!!
Last but not least, Silverglade Village, Fort Pinta and Moorland are covered in pretty birthday decorations! Also, ride out and see if you can spot the extra-special hot air balloons over at Everwind Fields!

So, that's a pretty packed birthday update, and we really hope you have tons of fun playing all the way through this extra special week! Thanks to our amazing players and fans, we're the world's biggest online horse game and it's an awesome feeling for us to celebrate our 3rd birthday with all of you!

Have the best week!
from everyone at Star Stable!

TODAY'S DOWNTIME

2014-09-29 07:00:00
A message from Star Stable regarding today's downtime:

Never, ever use downloadable tools claiming to be able to hack SSO!
Never, ever use downloadable tools claiming to be able to hack SSO!

This morning, the Star Stable team received some reports that the wrong character was appearing in-game for some players when they logged in. We also received a number of reports regarding a fake 'hack tool' that was released, claiming to offer unlimited free Star Coins to players.

Because of these reports, we've naturally taken down the servers in order to investigate. We take issues like these very seriously, and to take down the servers to allow for a full investigation was our safest choice to maximise account security for our players.

The 'hack tool' is in fact a piece of software designed to compromise the security of your accounts and computers. If you have used such a tool, delete it immediately and make sure to change your password right away to protect your account.

The whole team here are working as hard as possible to get the game back online as soon as possible, and Customer Support are on hand to help you with any worries or questions.

Thanks for your continued patience,
Star Stable Team

UPDATE: The servers are back up! Star Stable's servers are now back up and running. Since our investigation took longer than we'd hoped (approx. 5 hours), we've added a full day of Star Rider time to the accounts of all paying subscribers.

A little extra background:

Wrong Character Bug: We found 11 cases of people being accidentally logged into the wrong account at the weekend. This is because our servers were under a huge amount of pressure. We're really grateful to our fans and bloggers who told us about this early so we could stop it before it became a bigger problem.

Hack/Cheat Tool: We're going to be sending out an email to all of our players very soon to warn you all of the dangers of these programs, why they'll never, ever work, and why using them is a very, very bad idea.

Happy trails everyone! Thank you all for your support and patience :)
Star Stable Team

The band JA is made up of Anton Hagman and Jonas Peker, who are both 16 years old. The guys are from two small towns in Sweden, and they were discovered after they both had amazing YouTube channels where they each sang covers of famous songs.

Anton and Jonas have now gotten together to form their band JA, and their covers have already had over 300,000 views on YouTube. During the summer of 2014, JA have played at loads of festivals all over Sweden and in December, they're off to tour Singapore. Now JA are releasing their debut single "Caroline", and are in the process of making their first EP!

Soon, you'll be able to hear music from the boys on Friday and Saturday nights at Fort Pinta Disco! Get familiar with their sound right now by checking out their brand new video for "Caroline"!!
