The name Dolera is derived from Spanish dolerá (conjugation of doler (to cause/feel pain)), which in turn is perhaps derived from dolor (pain, as a noun), from Latin dolor (pain, sorrow, anguish ...) The server name literally means It' will hurt in Spanish.
- Hors De Combat(Now plays Johnny Luv), was the first to obtain Amazon Armor and also the first on Tibia. Later it was given to Ron Para as a present due to him always protecting him on Dolera. Shortly after, Ron Para's account was compramised and everything was stolen off the character.

- The Guildless Rule is in effect, which prohibits anyone without connections to play.
- Dolera is the most populated Hardcore PvP Server.
- Haste and Strong Haste are the best anti-PK tools.
- With more places to hunt it's easier getting the lost experience back.

Wars in PvP-Enforced are a bit different to regular ones. The strategy of using low level characters to give enemies unjustified kills doesn't exist for obvious reasons. Everyone is able to kill as much as they want, allowing good PVPers to continue a massacre.
Alliance of Dolera vs Shikon
The Para family dominated Dolera for a long time. In 2005 March 18, a high level guild, the Alliance of Dolera, decided to take over the server declaring war on Shikon, the Para's guild. Three months later it seemed the war had ended in favour of the Paras.
Pandemonium vs Chaos Riders - The 4 days war
The highest level of Dolera of the time, Lowix, had declared war on the guild Chaos Warriors on December 27. The reason was the murdering of his friend and the abuse of a game weakness. Lowix was killed by a magebomb programmed by Eruanno a few minutes after the war declaration going from level 136 to 133. After four days, Maguz Pistolero, founder and leader of Del Chaos, made an agreement with Lowix, leader of Pandemonium. Maguz Pistolero was to pay 200,000 gold coins in 2 weeks in exchange of Lowix ensuring no one in his guild bothers a Del Chaos member.
Shinsengumi vs Del Chaos, Pandemonium and Vengence of Deceit Alliance
No war declaration started this war. It's said a group of hunted players started it attacking the high levels of the strongest guilds. The Shinsengumi massacre in Thais, the multiple deaths of the highest level at the time, Lowix, and the death of Vazilisk were some of the most memorable parts of this war.
Pandemonium 694 vs 684 Del Chaos
The murdering of Athraz and Aldarith on 2007 December 24 started this war. All war information can be found in this thread. It was considered by many to be a nationality war between Americans and Mexicans. Like the majority of wars on Dolera one side left the server without much explanation leaving Del Chaos to run the server.
Del Chaos 71 vs 26 Vae Victus
Many of the hunted characters who did not leave the server after the war formed Nightmare and continually launched attacks on Del Chaos.

Blitzkriieg 13 vs 9 Blackened

- November 12: Edkeys forced a cease fire. The war is over.
Mavens 290 vs 234 Deadly
War started upon the death of Deadly members Gerardo De Aragon, Mounsieur Lujuria and Totitos. It was justified with the premise Deadly was randoming Brazilian Academy members. Some say it was caused by Edkeys, the leader until then, going on vacations. It's most likely the combination of both.

Notoriouz 47 vs 42 Primal Fear

The murdering of Sammy fixie triggered the first 2010 war. The first few days were very successful due to a rather controversial strategy concerning stacking.

Crimson Sunset controls the server.
- February 3: The war begins.
- February 13: Edkeys, the leader of Crimson Sunset, is banned for using illegal software.

The war between Exiles and Deadly was scheduled to begin at March 23, making it the first scheduled war and first conflict involving Mexicans in both sides since Blitzkriieg vs Blackned war. One of the great happenings after Solrakc had declared war by himself against Firez of Heavens, now Exiles, is the retirement of Edkeys. He had ruled the lands of Dolera for a long time "always trying to keep his friends together", but failed to do so in this conflict. He's been in charge of the main guild since he defeated Pandemonium back in 2007.
- March 22: Official date to begin the war.

The Fall of the Paras
The article written by Elathron summarizes what is known to be The Fall of the Paras.
"Everything has an end. An old saying that is applied to real life situations everyday. But, on a world like Dolera. Where one group, a family called The Paras have ruled so long, and prevented many from over taking them by killing them down if they were percieved as a threat, this saying seemed like only a mere hope. For months, the first level 100 on pvp enforced server was hunted. Him and his friends were kept down, by the paras and their collaboraters. Dozens more players also took the same fate and the server was ruled with an iron fist. The end was near though. More and more people were fed up with this sort of dictorial government. And this past week, the server has been finally retaken after months of surpression. With the combined psychological tactics of Solo Draconis,and his way of words. He was able to get on the side of the paras. Get his level up and his real life friends, and began to work on real allys, allys that in battle matter. Players like the intelligent sorcerer Nyalith and the persistant Lowix. Of course, its not this simple. Other events like, the killing of Nyalith by Lavs prompted Nyalith to fight instead of sitting by and living along side with the Paras. Either way, the manner of how this destiny become unfolded is somewhat irrelevant. Of course, other events with Xeberus gave the resistance a lot more strength, because Xeberus buddies would help aswell. Either way with the combined battle tactics of Lowix and Xeberus the paras have been finally eliminated. Demoralized as Lowix might have been for being hunted off a level 100+ character for so many months, he and others were still able to fight with enough determination to win. Perhaps this is the inveitable on a ruling power. But one, cannot help but admire the willpower of these players"
