Event Prizing Update

Ahoy Dragon Lords, messenger dragons hath delivered some exciting news. We’re changing the way we delve out prizes during events for the better!

In the past, at each tier, players earned a lot of minor prizes. There was no fanfare or hubbub, and when you reached important tiers like 5, 10, 20, etc., you got the same sort of prizes that you got at 3 or 8. It turns out… that’s not very exciting gameplay. You want to feel accomplished when you hit the 30th prize! You want to find a reason to get to that next important prize package.

The new event prizing will take care of that issue. Now, we’re introducing new milestone prizes. When you hit certain tiers, you’ll get a big payday.

We’ve also heard the feedback that there is a lot of junk in event prizes. We’re reducing those junk prizes and making sure we fill each event with event-specific prizes. We are also planning some themed events, so look out for some additional prizes during those weekends.

The overall value of the prizes will be the same (if not slightly more) than the previous prizing structure.

In the spirit of being as transparent as we can, we’re going to link you to the actual prizing structure we use.

Without further ado, bookmark this spreadsheet which lists the entire prizing structure for all in-game events: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1prg4pk8WsCwZWYMHLRwZxDNnBhwUuyMuKBCB2t1Z1cA/edit#gid=624552251

Note: this is a big ole spreadsheet with a lot of numbers; if you’re playing and notice that the numbers don’t reflect what’s on the sheet - please let us know! ALSO, as a note - remember, things may change at a moment’s notice and we may or may not have time to notify you. We hope that doesn’t happen, but if it does, we’ll let you all know ASAP.

We’ll be testing this out for the entirety of the Sunscorch Season, and we’ll reevaluate whether or not we continue to use the new structure going forward. Please don’t hesitate to let us know what you think.

We’ll also be holding an AMA on the forums regarding this new prizing update so you can ask the team questions about design intent, prize value, future updates, etc. Keep an eye on the Announcements > Discussions.
