Dear valued Players,
We are excited to share with you an innovative feature coming to our game update in April: the introduction of World Wars. This new feature, that was voted by you, is designed to bring an exhilarating dimension to your gaming experience, and we are eager to hear your feedback as we fine-tune its implementation.
Here’s an overview of how the World Wars will unfold:
- Each week, one of our ten servers will be designated as the ‘War Server.’ This means every server will experience the thrill of war once every two months.
- Players from non-war servers can join the ‘War Server’ at no extra cost, from the main menu. They can go back to their server for free as well. There is no cooldown, you just have to logout and login again.
- Participants from other servers will be granted a ‘Yellow Sword’ status, akin to the existing ‘Conqueror’ status. This means they can be engaged in combat on optional PvP servers, and any conflict resulting in their defeat will be deemed ‘justified.’
- While ‘invaders’ can explore the entire map, including bosses and NPCs, certain functionalities like the market, trade, mail, housing, and guild systems will be unavailable to them. Additionally, any loot they drop upon defeat will be permanently lost. To use those systems, they have to go back to their server (which is super easy and straightforward, see above).
- A unique ‘Global Fortress’ will be added to the map. Here, an event will be activated every 10 hours, similar to our existing fortresses (such as the Muroria fortress), but with a focus on server-based combat rather than guild rivalry.
- The victorious server in these fortress battles will receive a random boost on their home server, lasting between 3-6 hours.
- A new ranking system will be introduced to track each server’s success in the global fortress events. The top-ranking server at the end of the year will be rewarded with exclusive boosts and a special event in Kakelium. This ranking will reset annually, but we will keep the history of the results in our hall of fame.
- There is also a badge for the top 3 servers (like the badge of top experience, achievements and pet level).
- We recognize the advantage of lower ping times for players on their ‘home server.’ To address this, we’ve implemented a strategic server rotation to ensure fairness.
- Additionally, we’re constantly refining our network algorithms to enhance the gaming experience for everyone. However, we kindly ask for your understanding that increased ping times may occur for players joining servers at significant geographical distances, such as connecting from South America to Southeast Asia. Rest assured, we are committed to providing the best possible experience for all our players, regardless of their location.
We value your participation in this evolving journey and welcome your input as we refine this feature. You will be able to test it all in the next Test Server! For suggestions or queries, please engage with our community forum on Discord.
The stage is set for a thrilling challenge. Which server will rise to the occasion, dominating the battlefield with strategy, skill, and teamwork? This is more than just a game; it’s a test of strength, cunning, and coordination. Will your server be the one to instill awe and respect among your adversaries, earning a reputation as a formidable force in this epic saga of conquest? Prepare your strategies, rally your allies, and step into the arena. The battle for supremacy begins now. Let the games commence, and may the most powerful server claim victory!
Thank you for your continued support and enthusiasm.
