List 9, New Power Relic & More



Achievements List 9

While the Coven Conflict is going on, here's list 9 as promised. You'll be able to access it from your home page or any of the other achievements list for those who dare challenge it. There are a couple secrets which will get revealed in the next few months.

Coven Achievements List 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5

I've noticed quite a few people would love an achievements list for your covens, and today I can announce that's exactly what I've done. Achievements list 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5 for covens is now live for your completing pleasure. You can access the list on your coven pages.

Some of the tasks on these lists require things you didn't have access to before. The variables that are required that you don't know, have been added to the coven stats page. I have also added a new section on the activity feed to show coven achievement completions too.

New Coven Power Relic

The Coven Power Relics are great. It gives covens a little something to fight for every now and then. Each of the 3 relics are pretty desirable, but I want to add in another even more desirable one to heat up the competition even more. Introducing the new Ultimate Boost Relic. It gives +10% coven exp and +10% blood. This gives us a total of 4 Coven Power Relics for your enjoyment.

Writers

I have reached out to some of the still active applicants of the writing jobs I released a few months ago. I'm excited to get the ball rolling on these projects. If you didn't apply and want to contribute to the writing project and have a lot of time to give to it, you can send me a blood letter, be quick, though.

Enjoy,
Ash

Coven Conflict Full Run



Coven Conflict

Working progress, i like it. All the below systems will be open for play on Monday 23rd for a full week. Overall changes include:

  • New look coven conflict page
  • Coven conflict links added to the coven page
  • Left box now appears for raids, skirmishes and invasions
  • Dedicated vampire lists added where exp pays only for active hits
EARN DOUBLE TOKENS AT THE END OF THE WEEK FOR TESTING THIS WEEK!

Raids

Here are the changes to raids and another an overview of the feature:

  • Your first kills (their active member count/10) will yield + 10 raid exp (up from 5)
  • Every kill after will yield the same + 3 raid exp, zaps remain + 2 raid exp
  • Your score can no longer go into negatives (so only have to work back up from 0)
  • Only active players (within a month) give off raid exp
  • Quick link added to the coven member attack list page

I will keep a close eye on making sure the raids complete when they should. If you're in a raid that didn't end when it should, be sure to let me know ASAP so I can clear it manually and look into why.

Skirmishes

One change and one addition to the skirmishes at the moment. The divide by active members formula at the end of each round now counts members logged on the past 3 days, rather than a few weeks. Which will reduce the division amount, so having a few lingering inactive don't count as much as against your coven score, and will encourage everyone online to contribute to increase the score.

I have also added a coven tier list page so you can see a full list of covens and all the tiers.

Invasions

Due to no complaints on the invasion side, it's currently staying as is.

Token Shop

The token shop is open for business! Instead of just going ahead with this on my own, I'd like everyone who is in a coven, owns a coven, runs a coven to pitch it on what they think the token shop boosts should cost. I've started a thread to discuss this subject.

An extra enhancement to a current conflict feature and leaderboards to come soon. To give feedback etc for this particular update, please use this thread.

New Server

The new server arrived a couple days ago, and we'll most probably get plugged in and transferred sometime early next week. I will keep you in the loop of when that will happen, keep an eye on the game updates or our Facebook page.

Enjoy,
Ash

Coven Conflict: Invasions



Coven Conflict: Invasions

The Invasion part of the coven conflict system is now open for public testing. It is, at its core, the same as the old coven battles, with a few changes. Here are some of them:

- Interface has been updated to fit in with the new coven systems
- Invasion tier has been added to all relevant pages, this is separate to skirmish tier
- Hourly round bonuses now boost final exp by +3%
- Hourly round wins now boost coven exp payout by +1% per hour round win. When defending, your coven can actually earn coven exp just by winning rounds
- A few hour wait added before the invasion begins
- Zapping now earns invasion exp
- The rounds last from top of hour to top of hour, instead of half past
- You no longer have to wait until the end of the day for the invasions to finish, it checks every half an hour
- Banners no longer appear at the top of the battle pages, a new box on the left appears

There are a couple more changes I'd like to make, like the exp payouts, but I want to get this out there and tested before I go in and tweak.


Coven Wheel Changes

As you have probably noticed, the coven wheel is currently taking a little break. There is good reason for this. It was causing a few bugs with the war, and I've completely changed my mind about how to use this giveaway feature. It will remain down until next week, but don't worry, it'll be worth the wait.

Coven Conflict Overview

I will leave Invasions open for around 5-6 days, and then next week will work my ass off finishing off and making final tweaks to the whole coven conflict system. Bringing them altogether and doing a week of everything being open and available. And yes, that includes opening up the token shop and one more surprise feature.

For comments and bug reports on these new Invasions, please use this forum thread.

New Server Update

The server order has been placed and it should be arriving within a week. Super excited to see how RoB runs on SSD's. I'll update you when it arrives and there is a set date for install and transferring of files.

St. Patrick's Day Mini-Event

Starting from today you can enjoy the St. Patrick's mini-event. It will run for one week, and there is of course a delicious VIP/Plasma special to go along with it. Head to the Dead City to find out more.

Oh, and you can all have a drink on me.

Enjoy,
Ash
