Coven wars V1.3 Beta



A very good evening to you all,

One change this time, I think we're getting there! It's been fun & I'm so glad to see most of you enjoying them. Here are the changes that have been made:

- The war duration has been reduced to 48 hours.

(The rank bonus has been removed)

You have 24 hours again to declare a war and they will last for the new 48 hours. Lets get some more good results.

For all those that are interested, I'm releasing another set of our formula.  Below shows the exp tax for covens attacking outside of their tier.

Diff:      EXP:
0 diff = 100% of the exp
1 diff = 75% of the exp
2 diff = 50% of the exp
3 diff = 40% of the exp
4 diff = 30% of the exp
5 diff = 20% of the exp
6 diff = 10% of the exp
>7 diff = 1% of the exp


You lose a lot of potential exp fighting outside your tier. Indeed you cannot attack more than 5 tiers away from you, but during the war covens could lose members or gain members which could shift the tier further than 5.


As always you can give your feedback on this forum thread. Please give us feedback if you haven't already!

The July competition which will run through august too (for reasons I'll explain later) will be announced hopefully next week.  The thread was locked at the beginning of the month which dictated no more entries.

Thanks & Enjoy!
Ash

I think during a war a coven shouldn't be able to shift tiers. This could be easily abused by a smart coven leader.

When I just declared war I got this message.

"A notification will now be shown on all your coven members home pages. The war will end in 72 hours, get all your members to attack!"

Was the war reduced to 48 hours? I'm assuming the coding for the notice hadn't been updated yet...

DarkAsh said...

Yeah ignore all the text and stuff, that'll be updated when its fully released, the same thing with the guide etc :)

Arch Aestus said...

Ah, ok, good to know. And I was wondering about a bonus exp gain depending on how well we defeat the other coven. Maybe multipliers for double their war exp gained, or 1.5, or triple, or all three, lol. Just a thought. :P

I don't know, what is the incentive for doing battle? When you can get more coven exp by not doing battle?

yeah what derek said...

Ah, wonderful.Seems like some nice stuff is waiting for us. I'll keep my eyes open :p

it seems that when in combat and you do not get hit, the shield value is deducted properly. But if you get hit you maintain life during the fight but the full amount (including shield) is deducted after combat. Results: you win the fight then die.

Noticeable lag....

I also think Covens should only be able to fight one War at a time.

there is still huge lag at TOH - sucks and shield does not seem to be working.

I was wondering if there is going to ever be a penalty imposed on covens that annihilate there own players when there in a war so the other coven there battling cant kill and get any experience or war blood this is a chicken shit tactic that needs to be stopped and if not at the very least get some kind of war penalty come on if you think about it if your in a real life battle are you going to kill your own members this is bull shit
