Not only that, it has been accused of breaching copyright laws, as it says on wikipedia: "The game and website currently uses graphics from various games including Microsoft's Age of Empires: The Age of Kings and Age of Mythology as well as descriptions copied directly from Sid Meier's Civilization III and Civilization IV, as well as from other Mods and Wikipedia.
During the ongoing advertising campaign a particular advert featuring a fairy was apparently taken from the website costumecraze.com. The owners were subsequently informed and blogged about this."
And there was another controversey about the developer corporation, Universal Multiplayer Game Entertainment being linked to WoWMine, a Chinese operation known for gold mining. also criticism made regarding the game has been removed from Evony's forum by moderators.
