Wheel Of DeathThe majority of people who login each day indulge in the Wheel Of Death. Any why wouldn't they? Free stuff is awesome. It started with a daily turn login bonus. For those that remember, you used to get a little turn bonus on top of the updates page when you login each day. An extra boost for those who are active on a daily basis. I then made that process a little more interactive, and created The Wheel Of Death. Today, I take it a step further.
|The new Wheels Of Death
3 New Wheels
3 new wheels have been added in addition to the main wheel. The old lonely wheel is now labelled the Turn Wheel. This wheel gives you a random turn bonus each day. The other 2 wheels, Vial Wheel and Vitality Wheel are explained in their descriptions. The Coven Wheel will be explained in just a minute. You can spin each of 3 above wheels once per day. How awesome is that?
The Coven Wheel
Wheel number 4 is a Coven Wheel. This wheel can only be spun by a coven's owner or co-owner, and can only be spun once per week. The wheel gives out exp, as well as other bonuses you'll have to wait and find out for yourself.
As you can see in the above image, the link to spin them is below the picture of the wheel. When you have spun the wheel, that link gets replaced by a counter until you can spin again.
The Turn Wheel's payout has been increased. So now pays out even more than before (for both winners and losers).
All previous quests, achievements & missions that require the spinning of the wheel, have had their descriptions re-written to indicate that they count only the turn wheel. Future quests etc will include the other wheels, but the past ones are valid on the turn wheel only.
What's even better for those that are online right now, is that if you've already claimed your wheel today, it's been reset so you can do it again. Find any bugs? Be sure to report them.
Database workIn order to get ready for an awesome 2015, I need to start streamlining the database. During October, you probably won't see a huge amount of updates as I'll be spending time on the back-end of RoB. This will result in even faster page loads, and the ability to add more things that could never been done before due to potential "lag". There's so much in the pipeline, and I don't want this to be a deciding factor on an awesome idea not getting done.
Enjoy the weekend,
