This event sounds very interesting. I would love to see it implemented somehow. It gives a whole new meaning to “raiding” in PvP events

is it just for atlas teams? because if not this would almost be a good intro to atlas event…

No.
“Magic Gold” here isn’t affected by Atlas. Treat it like VP for other PvP events.

I’m not good at making lore like that.
If it’s accepted, I believe @Lachrymae or someone else can make much better lore for it.

From a game design/onboarding standpoint it’s usually kinda risky to give temporary amounts of a normally-permanent currency. People tend to assume they get to keep stuff you give them and get understandably hostile when it vanishes. However, the idea of “go wild with money that isn’t yours for a limited time to try to get as many rewards as possible at the end” is pretty compelling otherwise, if you could solve the “fairy gold” problem. So that’d be my design feedback on this.

Lorewise there of course many ways to fictionalize this.

i think it’s already answered…

OF used the term gold just to confuse people. :man_facepalming:t2:

:joy: Magic gold = Victory points in this case.
Plus it’s just main game event (doesn’t have anything to do with real Gold in Atlas).
