Suggestions needed for Coven Wars V1.2 & plasma special extended



 2010-06-26 05:34:51 - Orior Supra (3,334,850) VS Stormhaven (3,248,600) - Winner: Orior Supra

Damn that's close!

I'm happy to say that V1.1 was a success, no major bugs, positive feedback and some good wars. That's exactly what I like to see.

Because we squeezed out *most* of the issues of 1.0 in 1.1, we're not really sure what else to improve. We've got a pretty solid war system now which the majority of players love. So we want YOUR suggestions on how to make it even better and create V1.2. We want to do at least 1 more beta run with extra upgrades before launching it fully.

Think you've got an awesome idea or think something should be changed? Click here to join in with the forum discussion. We want to make it even better!

Due to the amount of requests that I've had I have decided to leave the Plasma special on until the world cup ends on July 9th. And from now on only, get 10% extra plasma when you buy pack 3 or 4 until the special ends.

Thanks to everyone taking part in the coven wars, can't wait to let it out into the wild!

Oh, for the people who saw the England game yesterday with that disallowed goal... i'd have to agree with the refs decision that...






















... it didnt go in! Haha.


Enjoy the week guys,
Ash

Huh? It says on the Coven War archive that Stormhaven won the battle against Orior Supra. :/

Looking forward to the new versions Ash.

DarkAsh said...

No it doesn't. It says Stormhaven beat buds. They lost against Supra.

The war system over here is a real ghey-sauce! Get rid of them!!!

Kinda pissed, but I'm fine... said...

The new system was really good, but as I posted in the Forums, I believe it would also be nice to know by how much you win or loose after x-amount of time, just a general idea, so you know whether you should surrender to save yourself, or if you actually have the chance to defeat your enemies...

DarkAsh said...

It's funny its mainly the Buds members that don't like it.

Kinda pissed, but I'm fine... said...

lol - I don't really get why... It seems to be a great system to me, and I sure as hell aint complaining!

I think that comment just won a number of new supporters for the Coven War system from those who were previously indifferent :)

Wait, we beat Buds? Awesome. And yeah, tbh this new system is getting kind of frustrating. I know I'll just sound like I'm whining here, but I don't like getting killed like 20 times a day within the first 2 minutes of each hour. I wanna be doing my bit for my coven, but the way this is working, just not possible unless I spend a lot of money on healing. Or maybe that's the idea.

Anonymous said...

I don't know it it's a bug from the War System updates, or what, but every 30-45 mins when I'm on RoB and I click on one of the links to go to a new page or something, my activity bar on my browser will either try connecting me to some entropologyhost.com, or it says Stopped and it won't let me do anything so I have to close the tab and open a new RoB one. This only just started as soon as the War System was put in.

you should make an alliance system too to go along with the war system

I know this is a suggestion, I'm only posting it here for anonymity, because if people don't like it, I don't want the assholes to rant about it for 3 pages. -.- I have a suggestion regarding money gained from war. If we no longer gain cash from war, and the reason for this is to take money out of the game, I'm guessing you've thought about all this money being brought into the game through all these battles? My solution is to not count the coven banks when figuring the total amount of money in the game, and slightly lower the cost of healing, to make people use it more. Since entire covens are now being wiped out every hour on the hour, non-VIP members need their money even more than ever, because otherwise they get about 2 seconds to do whatever they need to do, and it seems unfair to tell them to contribute more or we can't buy relics anymore. And it's kinda tough to ask the coven owner to fund the majority of contests, equipment, and relics by themselves. Whether my solution works or not, I'd like to see something done about this situation.

bloodlust said...

My idea, is the supply the coven with details of who was involved in the war, and also how much blood, exp, etc, they contributed. Also the individual vampire nows how they did for the coven too.
It gives the coven leadersinsite into who is active and who really wants to help their coven.
Wot u think?

Anonymous said...

I agree with bloodlust. It's kind of difficult for a coven owner to do comps based on these wars because they don't know who contributed what unless the individual combatants do a lot of copying and pasting, which takes a lot of time away from killing. The pace of the killing has gotten so fast that taking the time to copy and paste the kills is just getting undoable.

Anonymous said...

there should be only specific covens you can attack.
ex. coven of 14 peole(14 targets) vs. 2000+ buds members. we had no chance. Stormhaven did beat us fairly though(i guess....)

kytuni said...

Orior Supra 212 Members, Stormhaven 958 members, Buds 1599 members.

Orior Supra won against Stormhaven, Stormhaven won against Buds.

Hmm, do you see the pattern. I do :)

Aftershock "Spot" said...

As for the Anonymous above me, read the blog before this one.
We've made it so that you can only attack within +/-5 tiers of your own coven, and also added a tax penalty to the scores when a small coven is attacking a larger one.

By the way, I think it was 17-20 of their members vs 1620 buds, not 2000+.
Stormhaven indeed did beat Buds fairly. Would be interesting to see how Buds perform once they get their shit together.

Aftershock "Spot" said...

2 wars is not a pattern.
There are wars with 2 covens with exactly the same members, yet one coven has 3 times more score than the other.

kytuni said...

"By the way, I think it was 17-20 of their members vs 1620 buds, not 2000+."

lol you proved my point Aftershock.

Aftershock "Spot" said...

That was back in V1.0, this is V1.1 and we're planning V1.2. Keep up, no0b.
Your coven keeps losing because your owners have their fingers up their ass hoping Ash changes it back so that they win every war against everyone with a single click. Maybe they've made the decision not to participate in the wars and just let Buds lose them all, I don't know, but if you have a problem with Buds losing, go talk to the people responsible, your coven owners.

kytuni said...

As a mater of fact it was V1.1
and with V1.2 you guys are asking for suggestions.
code word "Help pull our asses out of this hole, we don't know what the hell we are doing."

Aftershock "Spot" said...

V1.0 Buds lost against Army of Nysfhsjdfhs
V1.1 Buds lost against Stormhaven

V1.2 = Now that we have the system pretty much settled, and the members have experienced it and have got the feel for it, we can consider suggestions they have for IMPROVING it.

Kytuni, come back when you can see this from a perspective other than "Wahhhh Buds suck we keep losing wahhh instead of doing something to fix this let's just blame everyone else wahhhhh it's a big conspiracy to try and destroy us wahhhh this idea sucks cause we no longer beat everyone in a single click wahhh"

DarkAsh said...

Covens have to evolve to fit this awesome new system. Many covens have, and are being victorious.

kytuni said...

Lets see.
V1.0 ARMY OF THE NYSARIAH Vs. Buds.
V1.1 Stormhaven Vs. Buds.
Hmm, Looks like your wrong there Aftershock. :)

kytuni said...

Wow Aftershock i didn't know it was that time of the month. Shh I know its the curse. :)

Blood Shard said...

kytuni said...

Orior Supra 212 Members, Stormhaven 958 members, Buds 1599 members.

Orior Supra won against Stormhaven, Stormhaven won against Buds.

Hum,,I am sure Aftershock "Spot" and kytuni are correct in there numbers of coven members,,

Aftershock "Spot"-it was 17-20 of their members vs 1620 buds
kytuni-was 17-20 of their members vs 1620 buds

and you say Stormhaven,,fits in Buds tier,,

Kytuni said...

Wow aftershock I didn't know it was that time of the month. Shh I know its the curse. :)

Umm, Blood Shard, wtf?

Buds and Stormhaven are NOT in the same tier. I never said they were. :S

Buds and Stormhaven are NOT in the same tier. So Stormhaven was penalized then,,,

Thank you Aftershock "Spot",,,*hugs*
Ps..Aftershock "Spot" I was asking a question,if you the individuals that began these wars had Stormhaven in Buds Tier or not,Ty,,

Anonymous said...

If buds really has 1620 members and are losing the coven wars maybe most of the members just don't care to participate. I'm just focused on increasing my stats not participating in the wars. If lots of other buds members has the same mindset as me then yeah buds will lose the wars due to very little participation from the members.

Legion White Tiger said...

I suppose I might as well try to say this again since the Demented robot 'Dementia' gagged me on the forums. What you have achieved Ash, is a system whereby any fool with a big wallet can win the game. Well Done. Not.

Anonymous said...

sounds like aftershock is against buds..oh wait..that's nothing new

bux is funny lol..guess this is people's idea of coven wars

Legion White Tiger said...

Has anyone thought about *why* Buds is the largest coven... Huge boosts I hear you all cry... No, not for me, that's not it at all. I'm there because there's none of the politics among us that's rife in all the others. You are trying to change the natural order with twisted game mechanics. What are you going to do next... Privatise all the utilities... Darn... They already did that.

Anonymous said...

Well, if Legion doesn't like the new system I guess there must be some good in it after all.

Anonymous said...

Reason why Buds doesn't like the system because the new system forces them to either choose between only recruiting the best and winning all the wars or continuing their methods of welcoming everyone but losing every war.

Starrynight said...

Has anyone thought about the effects of the new coven battle system on low-rank players who can't even buy VIP, let alone plasma?

Aren't they going to get somewhat discouraged when they realize how unlikely they are to do any real advancing in the game?

Since the new system makes turns substantially more valuable, how about increasing the quest rewards and offering the lower ranks some way of making up some ground, make the rewards a significant number of stat points or even a fairly large number of turns.

The lower ranks aren't going to contribute a whole lot to a coven battle; wouldn't it help the game to encourage them?

cujo cruor said...

I am a fan of the new system ash, but i think there should be a bit of a break in between wars where a war cant be declared on you, so that the players still have time to train, and dont become easy blood.

Anonymous said...

oh Ash has a solution for that cujo...

you don't want to stay weak?

BUY PLASMA!

lol...this is actually what this is all about :P

Oh ROLMAO! Nice one hi five, coven wars seem great and if you don't want to be easy blood then suicide when on line or attack your own members that are not on-line so at least the coven experience from those kills stays in your coven.

We've already put in a 24 hour wait after a war declared on you before another coven can declare on you.

Man you sure know how to talk when you hide behind being anonymous don't you I have a solution .......TRAIN..... Jeeze I mean how hard can that be its simple. I have trained my stats up about 10 in the last 5 days simply from training AND still had time to contribute to the coven war. OOO and as a bonus I earned money from killing and I can do a little thing called saveing that ingame money and then buy plasma with no out of pocket money. I for one think that the coven wars system needs tweeking (I have no suggestions) but its a great idea.
Ash keep working on it and you guys will get a great system that works and is enjoyable. There where so many complainers with the Gems too at the first and now not a lot complain this is the same thing

Evil said...

I have been watching this for a while, now after the recent wars I will speak :)

first off, anonymous, you really have personality issues.......

then, the wars... of course now the new system is in place , changes will have to be made inside covens. That is for every coven to decide how to do that so stop with being judgemental.

Of course Buds was bound to get a lot of backstabbing and drama, after all, high trees catch more wind than little shrubs. comes with being top clan :)

as for the tiers and tier penalties, why not remove that. make a max of 5, no other options.

i have no idea who you are, but that really is a mean and condescending comment, so even without knowing you, this one comment says it all.....nasty...

As for the results of recent wars.. I am beginning to wonder if its all legit. Very unlikely war stats, really does make me wonder....

till next time :)
