Hey everyone, we’re running the Beta version of Crystal Caves this week!
Prebattle phase begins on Wednesday 3/17 (hopefully by 2pm), from Thursday 3/18 at 12pm - Friday 3/19 at 12pm (PT) will be the Battle Phase. The post-Battle Phase will last until Tuesday 3/23 at 6pm (unless we take it down early but we don’t plan to). We will distribute rewards on Monday alongside the Fort event.
Please try Crystal Caves out and let us know what you think on the forums. Based on the feedback we get from this run (player feedback, faction feedback, and data), we’ll make necessary changes to the event and officially launch later this season.
The current prize structure is temporary, so don’t focus on that too much. Keep your mind on the gameplay – thanks!
CRYSTAL CAVES RULES
In Crystal Caves, teams compete to earn the highest VP by destroying Crystals and earning bonuses for their team. Every round, teams will be paired randomly inside a cave housing 3 Crystals. PvP attacks on the enemy team will earn points towards winning the Crystal and earning its special bonus. Crystals will respawn after a short cooldown.
CRYSTAL TYPES AND BONUSES
Dragon Boosts - These Crystals increase the HP or Damage of Dragons for your whole team for the duration of Event battles. Bonuses Max out at +25% Boost.
Tower Boosts - These Crystals increase the HP or Damage of Towers for your whole team for the duration of Event battles. Bonuses Max out at +25% Boost.
VP Chunk - These Crystals provide a big chunk of extra VP for your team. They cannot be attacked with Mega Coins.
VP Boost - These Crystals increase the VP earned from flights and VP Chunks for your whole team for the duration of the event. Bonuses Max out at +25% Boost.
Crystal Bombs - Bombs deal percent-based damage for your team to the other 2 Crystals in the cave, making it easier for your team to win them. Bombs will spawn with a Dragon Class or Element requirement and will need a matching Dragon to be flown in order to earn points for it.
UNIQUE DRAGON BONUS
The Crystal Caves event will also provide a special 10x Boost multiplier for every unique Dragon successfully flown in battle. In order to be eligible for the boost, a Dragon must deal 70% Destruction on its own to the enemy Base. Unique Dragon Boost may be applied once per Dragon per Round and will reset at the start of every Round. Up to 10 Dragons may earn this boost per round.
