Good day, Dragon Lords!
This week we say auf wiedersehen to a long-running PVP event in War Dragons: King of the Hill. Starting tomorrow, this will be the final run of this event for the foreseeable future.
A few weeks ago on stream, PGCoffee joined us to discuss the intent behind retiring this community-loved event. The TL;DR here is that King of the Hill is an older but highly complex event that is difficult to maintain at the level necessary to provide a stellar experience for our players.
While we wave goodbye to King of the Hill this week, know that the team is hard at work creating new PVP events that share some of KotH’s most beloved features. We even have a new event coming up that we’re previewing on our livestreams all week! (Hint hint: you’ll want to tune in for this! )
Here’s some details on how this final King of the Hill event will be run:
Siege Weapons and Barricades will will continue to drop as normal when you open chests. While we initially discussed removing these consumables from chests for this event, teams which had leftover Barricades and Siege Weapons from previous events would have an unfair advantage.
Once King of the Hill ends next week, we will be converting leftover Siege Weapons into Energy Packs with the following ratios:
- For every 2 Legendary Siege Weapons, players will receive 15 Energy Packs
- For every 2 Epic Siege Weapons, players will receive 4 Energy Packs
- For every 6 Common Siege Weapons, players will receive 1 Energy Pack
We are crediting players based on the equivalent amount from that category in chest drops (Legendary, Epic, and Rare). Yes, we will round up!
We will NOT be exchanging any leftover Barricades from this event. Barricades are a strategic consumable that is unique in functionality to King of the Hill and do not impact individual point-scoring. It’s better to use your barricades during the event since they’ll be gone once the event ends. All Barricades must be used!
Players will be credited their converted Energy Packs after King of the Hill ends and before the next major event occurs. Get out there and make the most of this last run!
