War Event Duration Update (Viking Clan and Zombie Slayer)

    Hey all,

    One of the more frequent bits of feedback we get around the War Events is that they are a tad too long, running for four days from Friday to Tuesday.

    To that end, we’re planning on making an update for this week’s Guild/Faction War events in Viking Clan and Zombie Slayer respectively to change that timing to three days. This means the War Event will run from Friday October 26th at either 10am or 4pm Pacific, depending on the game, until the corresponding end time on Monday, October 29th.

    We’ve also adjusted some of the timers in the War Event to account for the shorter duration. Here’s a quick rundown of what’s been adjusted:

    • 3 Day Event
    • 11 minute, 15 second respawn timer
    • 4 token refills per day (12 refills total)
    • 67 tokens per refill
    • 4FP/UN per refill (works out to same total FP/UN to be spent on refills as the current event)
    • 2 minute, 2 second token regen time
    • max tokens raised to 400
    This is not a permanent change right now, but if the 3 day event feels right we can keep it around for a while and potentially bring it over to Pirate Clan and Mob War: LCN as well. Let us know what you think of this change, and make sure to pass this on to your Guild/Faction mates so they are aware!

    There are no changes to the rewards for this event. It shouldn't take you any more effort, you can just get the same amount of actions done in a shorter amount of time.

    Just knocking a day off the event would be fine. Changing the respawn time, cost of refills, and tokens per refill is simply overkill.

    I'm taking it by the fact there isn't a mention of token regen time that it is unchanged. I hope so.

    You are correct, token regen time is unchanged.

    not sure the extra cost for a refill is the best move. it does average out to the 4 extra tokens gained overall (50*16=800 , 67*12=804) but its pretty pricey. if there was an option to buy 50 tokens for 3 fp or 67 for 4 fp that would work i think. More options given to people the better. No matter the choice a person would choose would count towards 1 refill, so still only 12 max with the shortened time.

    Decreasing the amount of time for token regen should also be reduced a bit to compensate for the reduction of a day off the war. The kill achievements take a lot of time to gain and cutting a day off means 600 less tokens or for a good guild a minimum of 5 kills from tokens spent.

    Will 2604 be the "NEW MAXIMUM" number of Tokens a player who uses all 12 refills (who also doesn't over-stack tokens) receive over the entire Guild War? 1600+804+200=2604.

    i dont think it is really overkill as there are achievements that require a massive amount of time to get namely the kill achievement and a day taken off lengthens that time quite a bit if this is a thing to go forward hence the necessity to what they have done in keeping everything proportionally the same but in a shorter time.

    I think this was an oversight on our part. It is our intention to have the same amount of actions (give or take a small handful) over a shorter time period. We'll crunch some numbers and share any updates here

    The old "MAXIMUM" was 3132 Tokens. With a 2604 "NEW MAXIMUM" tokens per GW, average player and Guild, scores will decrease approximately 17%.

    Can I suggest that you postpone it for this war? It's too close to this war now to be crunching numbers. This applies if token regen time change is being considered. If regen time is being considered to be made lower, I'd also suggest editing the maximum to exceed 300.

    I have updated the OP with the following:
    • token regen reduced from 162 seconds to 122 seconds
    • max tokens raised from 300 to 400
    What this means is that you will be able to earn the same amount of tokens over the duration of the event and it will still take about 13.5 hours for your tokens to max out. Thank you all for your feedback today and we look forward to your feedback during this weeks event.

    Honestly, I believe that with a day being knocked off that those day's refills should also be knocked off. Whoever is concerned with the achievements just needs to keep playing.
