Highlights

Weekend Warfront: Forged in Blood

Image

The legendary workshop of Logrin Olgrumson has been unearthed, promising both riches and badly needed weapons to the faction that can maintain control of the Forge. Now both Order and Destruction forces converge upon the ancient workshop, both sides determined to claim the Dwarf hoard as their own.

This weekend Forged in Blood will be the weekend warfront from 12:00 on Friday to 12:00 on Monday Altdorf time. You get +50% XP and Renown in the Logrin's Forge scenario. Completing all tasks rewards the unique title "The Forgelord".


Realm versus Realm

Open World Campaign

The weekly RvR warfront is now based on RvR influence instead of specific tasks. You need 10,000 RvR influence to reach the elite reward. This number might be tweaked in the future and you're welcomed to share reliable feedback about the RvR warfront's progress state.

This change will help you participate in RvR activities without worrying about achieving specific tasks, rendering all activities important at all times, instead of achieving a task and then solely focusing on something else. The change will take effect from next weekly warfront starting on Monday.


Scenarios

- The loser scenario reward will now scale better with the tier brackets. We've enhanced the losing team's rewards from T1 till T4. The losing team will have a mixture of fixed reward (scales with SC tier) + varying reward (scales with SC score)

- The damage buff in High Pass Cemetery has been removed. ]The damage buff was found to increase the gap between the winning and losing team, making any chance of comeback minimal.


City Siege

- Attacking objects such as doors no longer give contribution or score on the scoreboard on Scenarios or City Sieges. Some players were disrupting their team effort in order to rank higher in contribution, thus hitting doors and objects to score more damage on the leaderboard.



User Interface
Image
Guilds

- Fixed issue which caused the Guild Vault to pop up after interacting with it once.

- You can now join a guild members open group by right clicking on his name on the guild roster.

Notes
Image

Sorry about the extended maintanace today. We finished migrating all of our server. This was a lengthy and expensive process which has taken months. We have been rewriting and updating tools which have been written over the last 8 years. Some of the servers we were running on were from 2016 and housed a lot of off scripts and tools all over the place. Now all these services are on our new platform it should allow us to quickly update all of our services in the future, as well as quickly build and deploy new tools.

Sorry for any inconvenience.

I expect that kills still give influence so a solo kill should give more rvr influence to a single player than a kill done by a warband shared with all. If so could be a chance for more solo if it is also more rewarding...

I will withhold judgement until I see how it’s implemented. Might help solo action in sense of more people running supplies so more people to fight, but could also have adverse affects, will see.

Excited for the influence change to orvr. I have no idea what that translates to number wise but seems positive for various playstyles and importantly the underdog side since AAO increases inf gain. Keep takes still give a large inf tick and the losers don't get one, so pvdoor will still be a thing? Hope it means more balance in pop.

If pvdoor means little to no positive gain towards weekly, that almost in itself I feel is a positive change.
