Website Status Update

nils    (Dec 04 2019)      0          150
Categories: Updates


As previously announced, we are moving the website to a new host provider.

We are starting to move the website on Monday, 9 December. Moving the whole website will take up to 7 days, during this time there is expected to be some intermittent downtime and possibly services temporarily not working, such as e-mail.

Update, 18th December:
We have now moved the website to a new hosting provider. There are still some things left to do, so parts of the website won't work 100% as expected. However, we are working on making sure it does! Once everything is back to normal and stable again, we will inform you =)

Update, 16th March:
There are some uptime issues with the website due to some technical server errors due to the new hosting provider. We are working to resolve this, but it has been a somewhat problematic process. The website is currently up and running again but it might be subject to intermittent downtime unfortunately. Once again, we will inform you when everything is back to normal.

Best regards, Nils

We are changing provider for the website, this will mean that the website will be unavailable for an unspecified amount of time.

Unfortunately we do not know for how long the website will be unavailable, due to an unexpected shutdown from our current web provider. But we are looking into finding a new provider.

We will keep you updated on this situation.

Sorry for any inconvenience this might cause.

If there are any questions concerning this issue, don't hesitate to drop a comment in the comment section.

TibiaHof.com is back to normal

For the last month the player activities have not been updated due to a new DDoS protection tool implemented over at tibia.com.

We rely on gathering player information from the player profiles at tibia.com. The DDoS protection tool prevented us from doing so.

We have now been able to fix this problem and player activities are now updating like normal again! :)

It should take somewhere between 1-2 weeks before all characters are updated again.

Sorry for the inconvenience this has caused.

Update 2019-09-24:
We have also fixed Most Recent Characters which hasn't been working since June (!). So once again TibiaHof.com is tracking new random players.

Status of Activities

Player Activities are currently not updated and they haven't been updated for a while. Let me explain why.

TibiaHof collects information about players by scraping data from tibia.com. TibiaHof relies on tibia.com to provide this data free of charge.

Why do we scrape data from tibia.com?

The reason TibiaHof scrapes data from the tibia.com website is simply due to the fact that CipSoft has not provided any API (Application Programmer Interface) for fansites. Such an API would greatly benefit both fansites and CipSoft. There has been attempts by CipSoft to provide such API:s but due to various technical issues they have not been able to provide data by API.

This has left fansites to scrape data.

So why haven't Activities been updated?

Over the past month CipSoft has implemented a DDoS blocking tool by CloudFlare. The purpose of it is to mitigate potential vicious attacks aimed at the tibia.com website.

This new blocking tool has had severe negative impact on TibiaHof since we no longer can scrape player data. This affects other parts of the website as well, such as Highscores, character information, and so on. Since we cannot collect data like we used to do, the website serves no purpose, if the information is not up to date.

I will keep you updated on how this issue evolves. We're hoping that there is a solution so the website can go back to normal.

Maintenance update

The website has been updated for maintenance.

Some new changes...

We have removed some functionality from the website which serves no purpose anymore.

* The forum has been removed. It was used to some extent when the website was launched and with all the contests, but it is rarely used anymore, so we have opted against it and removed it.

* Uploading multiple images at once is removed. Uploading multiple images at once with the Flash uploader is removed since Flash is no longer supported by most major web browsers over time. You will still be able to upload one image at a time, which is what most users use anyway.

* The tibia.com mirror is also removed. However, it might come back later.

Other than that the website will stay pretty much the same.

What does the future hold?

TibiaHof will focus more on what it's best at - Activities and Highscore lists.

Statement of the website - 15th May 2018

Hi again,

As some of you might have read or heard, the website is no longer listed as an officially supported fansite at tibia.com. As it stands right now, the website is an unofficial Tibia fansite.

Just to get it out of the way: TibiaHof will still exist and work the same way as it did before. The only difference is we are no longer officially supported by the tibia fansite program.

The reason behind this is due to lack of time to fully nurture the website. I am not available to keep in contact with the fansite program. So we decided to leave the fansite program and exist as an independent unofficial fansite.

When I started the website back in 2012 I was attending university and had a lot of spare time to work on the website and improve it. As time has passed I've had less time to focus on the website.

What about the future?

The website will live on and will see some new cool features along the way. I have one new feature in mind that I would like to implement sometime this year, which will be the Best Players of Tibia. It will rank the best players (based on level, achievement points, skills, loyalty, etc); these players will be listed on the start page as well. You could say that those players will become the true heroes of the Hall of Fame :)

So stay tuned for more updates and take care!

Categories: Updates


In the last month we have rolled out version 3.7 of TibiaHof, which improves the design and layout of the website.

Here's a list of the major updates in this new version:

* On the front page we have added an inline window where you can select what you wish to do today.
* Removed Quick Links on the front page, as it seems a bit useless.
* Rashid has been moved to the side bar on the front page.
* We removed Forum and Community from the navigation bar (now accessible via front page or the footer). We also added Activities to the navigation menu.
* Fixed some browser compatibility issues.
* The mobile version has been improved; mainly data tables have been easier to view and scroll.
* The website is now fully secure using https!

We have also fixed a few other things here and there. We hope you like this new version.

Weirdest of 2017

Read part 1 (Winners and Losers of 2017) here.

Here at TibiaHof we not only celebrate winners and losers but also the peculiar, oddish, off the radar, weirdness, whatever you wanna call it, of the Tibian world. In part 2 we would like to feature the weirdest players of 2017. So let's get weird!



o.O o.O o.O Player who has changed sex the most o.O o.O o.O

This year's winner in the category of players who's had the most sex changes is a tie between two players: Marco Drakell@Gentebra and
Riivv@Antica with a total of +9 sex changes in 2017.

However, the winner of 2014, Potrosh@Olympa, still remains the all time winner in this category with a total of +13 sex changes in a given year.
