As we all know Kingdom Wars has a few problems that has really made the event a top 2 in disliked PVP events…the other being fight pits, which I will get to in the next post.
I am hoping with the support of the players we can first make this event great for everyone, and with enough support that we can get PG to listen to the players and replace KW with the new event.
I know that many of you are thinking that this is just a waist of time, PG won’t listen and does not care…
I ask you to just try, help make the event better or simply show your support…if we get the numbers and PG still does nothing then maybe it is time to stop giving PG our business and move on.
The new event is a remodeling of KW, it is keeping the basic idea of KW while fixing the problems that exist.
So here is the new event idea.
The Tides of War
The long lost islands of the silver sea have resurfaced and the great sea dragon Ryuu has opened a portal to the islands….this is your chance to gain some new lands…but first you will have to get rid of the black bloods while keeping your opponents at bay.
The event starts with a small island in the middle of the map with all 25 teams around the border.
Each team has a dock attached to their starting location (the docks and starting locations can not be attacked).
There are 5 islands around the map, each island has 5 docks that are attached to 3 hexes on the island (the reason for 5 docks is that you have 5 islands making 25 docks in total…the same as the number of teams… giving everyone the chance to start in an area alone)
The docks on the islands can not be destroyed or taken over, they are free spots for anyone who wishes to set foot on the island, these docks are attached to 3 hexes to make it harder to cut teams off from their starting zones.
The five islands have different land values as well as takeover points
Points awarded per hex / amount to takeover hex (points are awarded per hr for hexes owned)
Island 1 – 200 / 6000
Island 2 - 400 / 9000
Island 3 – 600 / 12000
Island 4 – 800 / 15000
Island 5 – 1000 / 18000
By making the land values different it will create a very interesting long term strategy, it will not be who owns the most…but rather what is the value of the lands you own.
This will become a very strategic question, do I have my team go after high valued lands when there is only 5 players on? This could be a very costly mistake when the team wastes an hour and gains nothing, or do you have them go after a lower island and gain 400 points in that hour.
Better yet…do you try and fight it out with 4 teams for the high value land that is almost always taken away in the next hour…or take over 4 lands in a very low contested island with only 1 other team.
The possibilities will be endless.
There will be monuments on each island.
The value and takeover costs are as follows.(this is based on the normal island values)
Value / Minor – 2x, Major – 3 x, Epic – 4x, Mythical – 5x
Takeover / Minor – 1.5x, Major – 1.75x, Epic – 2x, Mythical – 2.5x
Island 1 – 2 Minor & 1 Epic
Island 2 – 2 Minor, 1 Major, 1 Epic
Island 3 – 3 Minor, 2 Major, 1 Epic
Island 4 – 3 Minor, 2 Major, 2 Epic
Island 5 – 3 Major, 2 Epic, 1 Mythical
There will be 12 treasure chests located on the islands, the chests are unknown in value…it will simply be a chest on the map.
These chests are for the whole team (they would be mailed to the team members who took over the hex first…once taken they are gone for the rest of the event)
Below is the possible values of the chests…it would of course need to be approved by PG
5 Minor chests (3 bronze chests, 1 silver chest, 10 energy & 10 inner fires)
4 Major chests (5 bronze chests, 2 silver chests, 1 rare glyph, 15 energy & 15 inner fires)
2 Epic chests (2 gold chests, 1 Epic glyph, 20 energy, 20 inner fires & 250 sigils)
1 Mythical chest (4 gold chests, 1 legendary glyph, 40 energy, 40 inner fires & 500 sigils)
These chests will be located on all the islands as a distraction/prize (do you go after the monument…or do you go in the opposite direction and hope the chest is worth it, do you fight it out with the 3 other teams for the monument or take a chance on the chest…what to do…what to do.
