    Hey all,

    Tomorrow morning at 9 am Pacific a brand new Raid Boss - Skoll and Hati - will be invading the Nine Realms! These astral wolves chase the Sun and Moon through the sky and if they manage to catch them, well, let’s just say that bad things happen.

    In addition to this new Raid with new items to earn, we’re also releasing an extension to the existing Attack/Heal/Open categories and introducing some brand new Raid achievements to collect!

    These new Raid achievements are for placement on the three Raid leaderboards that will be up throughout the event. Whether you place in the Top 50%, 25% or 5%, at the end of the Raid there we be medals for you to collect. These medals chart your progress towards these Achievements (and you can see this on your user stats) so be sure to grab them when the event ends next Friday.

    A quick note, the open tiers are staying from last month’s Raid in addition to the cap of 30 simultaneous Raids that a player can be in at one time.

    While there was some consternation around this cap in last week’s Mob Wars: LCN Raid, overall that event performed quite well and it looks like the 30 cap solved some of the issues we see in Viking Clan Raids where players have difficulties finding Raids in the first few days of the event.

    We’re continuing to collect data around this change to make sure it’s a good fit. We have definitely been reading the conversation around the cap and have some idea of where we could adjust it in the future, but we need to get a good look at how it functions in events other than LCN.

    Keep an eye out for these changes when the Skoll and Hati Raid launches at 9 am Pacific tomorrow!

    so the low levels have no chance again without the tiers being put back and worked great by the way no change was needed were never going to get the Top 50%, 25% or 5% achievements having a 30 raid hold limit is only going for the higher levels to kill off the bosses regardless if the lower levels want to let thier bosses to run for a few days and yes i know we can control who we invite ....

    Well once again, lets see how this goes. I still dont know why we dont have the option open just for clan as you do on Regular Bosses. You either have to keep it private or open it to all. In my opinion making your Raid public is taking a chance

    It is possible to copy and post link as a friend message in feed. This will show only to your clan.

    With the top 5% leaderboard achievements does that mean there will start being rewards gifted to top X players such as loot boxes or fp?

    Also since there are generally 3 categories, if we score in the top 5% on each would that count as 3 top 5% rankings meaning only 3 more would be needed to complete the achievement that is currently posted?

    The only issue with finding raids in LCN over the last few months was in Tier 2. Adjusting the tiers would have fixed that. As well as removing the tiers. The cap was unnecessary for that purpose.

    what does that even mean, you like the cap, you want to be limited to 30 raids at any given time??? You like limits in a damn game, sheeeesh

    Well, they just took away the ability for some of us higher level players to get hundreds of raid drops per raid event. --I'd argue this hurts the higher level players (or at least limits us), and helps the lower level players get on more raids.

    I used to look forward to raids but since this cap has been introduced I can't be bothered with them. I was in 10 raids in LCN that failed because they couldn't even fill them. In PC I usually start 4-5 raids and they are done fast, but with LCN I got a free set of keys and didn't even bother starting a raid because of all the failed ones, not gonna waste my steam.

    As many posted in LCN chat, is good to have a cap, because of all the people that enter a raid and just stay there, not doing damage at all. BUT I believe that that cap wasn t suppose to be about the number of bosses you join, but about the number of bosses you make your actions too. So, as soon as you made your 2000 actions attacks and heals, to those 30 bosses, you should be able to join others. Not just when they are dead.There are people in this game capable of doing damage to more then 30 bosses and they are limited right now

    All the yarfing about the cap aside - love the new art! Great sense of atmosphere and that menacing confidence that wolves really do have. Honestly the art has been great for quite a while, just doesn't hurt to give a few kudos now and then :D
  18. And yet if there is a 30 limit on raids than why are there players killing more than 50, indecently the same ones always at the top.

    Glad to hear it, I will let the artists know!

    30 at one time. You can do as many as you want over the event.

    Mitch~ if you think the 30 cap is fine then what ever lets fill all the raids with tier 1s ad see if they get finished if your going to keep the cap at least give us back adjust tiers. say tier 1~~ 0~4500, tier 2 4501 ~~ 8000, tier 3 8001 and above
