Age 28 - The Age of Quests- Preliminary Changes

Age will begin Saturday 19th September and run into early December.


Edits

Server Reset will be in a maximum 6 hours.

Changes to rebuild stance (Science maximum is 'Active')
Human modified:Bailiff: Dungeons generate 10gc day.
Resolution War conditions changed until at least 72 hours after your last war concluded.
Sitting days increased to help with the probable war increase and lack of vm
Avian Elite now: 8/2 Elite, 750gc, 6.5nw (was 800gc)
Last day war victory can be claimed by the kingdom winning each category by over 10% (still a minimum of 12 hours of war required before claim)
Honour loss for withdrawing for war increased if you have more honour than the opposing kingdom.
Elf type fixed to show networth for elites (6)

Focus for the Age

After plenty of feedback, I will focus on these key issues:

Guide to reflect all game rules inclusively.
A proper landing page and the ability to post awards/ good attacks to social media which will help promote the game.
Fix outstanding problems and add a permanent Bug Forum so we can clean up any existing issues with the game.
Encourage out of war conflict and interaction, and not make war so you can basically pick your fights all the time.

I promised a lot last age and I did not deliver, so I am wary of over-promising and under-delivering, changes will be big enough hopefully to keep people entertained, but I need to finish the previous suggestions and ideas that not been achieved yet.

General Changes

Constant swearing and personal abuse in world chat and world forums results in being muted from them. It is not a welcoming environment and puts people off playing..

Remove Defiance at 50% effect when hitting the kingdoms directly above and below you in the land charts. Its wasn't needed and very buggy.

Remove Vacation. With sitting its not really needed.

Provinces leave protection with 2000 honour again. This was buggy at the start of last age and didnt go unnoticed, and I dont think 1000 honour was a good starting figure.

Force Ceasefire: Cannot be chosen if your kingdom has attacked for in last two days.

Ops to show up on kingdom page again (% chance based on strength of operation)

Sitting days added will be 21, to cover the the more inconvenient nature of war and the lack of vacation mode.

Stance Changes

Aggressive Stance to be 150% of the usual attack points, not 200%.
No honour gained for ops in or out of a Jubilant Stance.
Science maximum research rate is 'Active' during Rebuild Stance.

Attack Changes

Raze will destroy honour on the target. This will be half of the honour that would have been gained if it was a traditional march attack.


Item Changes

These were not completed for last age and I am sorry, I was optimistic about my time and the coding required. They should be in now, or will be fully in before server resets.

Necronomicon items to be finished for this age.

Black Cat Legendary has been renamed, as I need a cat for a familiar and two cats is confusing.

Familiars - similar to dragonlings but no hatching required (they arrive in a crate... and are random). They grow/evolve in strength over time dependant on their happiness, 6 familiars, 3 stages. These are temporary items and you can release them.

Curious Peddler to be added, adding 12 temporary items.

Quests

Quests to be added! These are kingdom quests - the monarch can pick a new random quest every 24 hours. For example they will be take acres/resources from anywhere, larger kingdoms, specific race or personality (odds dependent on race/pers numbers). Amount needed to complete quest will be dependent on kingdom size. Completion of quest will result in a reward of say explore pool, gems or resources. This I think will give kingdoms a focus out of war and encourage kingdom conflict.

I want to keep these fun and optional and bug free, so will hash this out on my local server and in the arena before they appear.


Honour Changes

Honour gains are 50% against kingdoms that have a 0 meter on your kingdom.
Honour gains from thief and wizard operations are reduced by gains (for instance, 0% honour for ops in and out of Jubilant)

Challenge Wars

Provinces can not defect into your kingdom once a challenge counter is active.

Claim Win

Honour loss for withdrawing to be increased, this is to dissuade possible abuse of tactical honour withdrawals which people are concerned about. Will use the following formula:

Max(Min(WdkingdomHonour * 0.95,Win KingdomHonour - WdkingdomHonour * 0.05),WdkingdomHonour * 0.85)

Which effectively means you lose more than 5% if you with withdraw from a war with more honour than the opposing kingdom. Up to a maximum of 15%, but you

Claim Win

Currently you can claim a win if your opponent is lower than 50% in land, networth or honour and war has been over 12 hours long - or your opponent have all deleted or been suspended.

This is to be changed: You cannot claim win if you have lost more of a percentage of nw, land or honour in 2 out of 3 of the categories. After 48 hours these requirements drop by 0.5% an hour. I'll update the war overview page to reflect the loss % and the current claim requirements.

Last day war victory can be claimed by the kingdom winning each category by over 10% (still a minimum of 12 hours of war required before claim)


Resolution Wars

You can automatically challenge war on any kingdom with the following conditions:

1) You have not beaten them already in war.
2) They have more war points than you.
3) Target is within 95%-110% nw range.
4) Your meter on them must be less or equal to their meter.
5) You have equal or less provinces than them.
6) You cannot declare until 72 hours after your last war concluded.

On declaring the Resolution War and meeting the conditions set out above, it becomes an automatically accepted Challenge War, with the important difference that the war starts in 36 + a random 1-24 hours so as not to favour a particular hour. The countdown will show the correct time of war start. I will update to also show the mythea date of war start in the countdown.

On the resolution war:

Make it so a kg can not gain more than 10% nw after challenge stats or war may be cancelled by the other KD. Otherwise I see a clear loophole for WW.

I think this is looking good. The quests should encourage kingdoms to be in same range and encourage conflict. Resolution wars makes triumphant kingdoms vulnerable and wars much easier to get if you want.

I do think maybe a balance between a limited vacation mode and shorter sitting timeframe would be preferable so cross logging during wars can't be maintained throughout the age.

Canges looking great. I ope they won't get canged much.

I would however gove +1 stealth, -1 Mana to cleric, and + mana and - stealth to druid as it is more AM pers.

And plz consider dropping Pop bonus from Honour (maybe next age). It makes impossible for less honour kd to war kd with much more honour, apart just from honour rape. Also helps too much TM heavy hybrids and races with pop bonus, like Gnomes.

Lol will saying "dialisis", kidney, pills, heart problem, sick , hospital on worldchat be considered as personal attacks? Some ppl can be over the top drama queen ya know ;)

On serious note, the new halfer n ent change are irrelevant n unnecessary. Looks like someone is plotting a kd set up and force the idea to you to back it up. You should never make changes based on a player personal agenda. If halfer gets propaganda, gnome lost its specialty. And beside, ent n ms, halfer n propaganda? Irrelevant. Maybe bring back food wage on halfer and leave ent with their new bloodlust

The new claim war win seems weird. You should just leave it as it is. Claim ain't supposed to be easy. Stop dumbing down the game and simplify mechanism not making it more impossible for anyone to remember

I like the auto war challenge. It gives room for strategy
I like raze change because it will somewhat kill fake war. However i do see ppl will be more afraid of going to war.

Conquest on a server full of gangbanging and proud alliance who are only happy of their life if they can gather enough ppl to gb someone? I'm not sure

Also you killed sage. Sage has no other real benefit other than science protection compare to human now. How is that ballance? It doesn't need a death penalty. Last age they don't get any boost, so why you wanna kill sage now? Give me your logic reason behind this pls

Nerfing sage is a good idea. Sage alredy got too many stacking bonuses, Eureka stone + honour. And was impossible to learn. Now it's only a bit easier to learn and bit less sci bonus. So it's only a small nerf and needed one.

Resolution Wars

1) You have not beaten them already in war.
2) They have more war points than you.

I understand your logic but please consider that these two points allow the players to manipulate the system.

A kgd that you have already beaten gains automatic protection even if it has more points than you later on.
The leading kgd has no rights to force a war against anyone and will probably lose his first spot during end of age final wars

To keep the good of your idea and at the same time avoid unwanted manipulations please consider the possibility of removing these two limits during the last 2 weeks of the age.

Thank you

Also consider dropping free gems from monarchs. For buisness reasons. As i doubt any monarch will now spend money on Servants.

Resolution Wars

I like it in principle, but this should provide the challenged KD some protection too. After all the KD are being forced to war, when they may not be inclined to do so. They may have a monarch absent, have planned a week of science pumping or just not planned any wars for the entire age. Now they have to war and possibly get ready to take a beating if they are not a decent warring KD. Imo that deserves some protection.

Additionally we are seeing some alliances and kd's coordinating together. a Challenged KD should receive maximum defiance when a resolution war is placed. This should give the KD some protection from randoms or 2v1 style play. This will also give them some time to login and start preparing.

I would actually go beyond this, because I don't want to see resolution wars become the normal way of finding wars. A KD issuing a resolution war should have a gains nerf imo. No more than 10% though. Lets face it its going to be the powerplaying kds that use this feature. Many normal KD's will find themselves getting screwed from this. If you want to force a KD to war, probably against their wishes then you should have a handicap imo

Focus for the Age - good

General Changes - good

Stance Changes- good

Attack Changes - good

Item Changes - good

Quests - no opinion, need to know more

Honour Changes - good

Challenge Wars - good

Claim Win - Don't understand it and too complicated to remember

Resolution Wars - A strategy that will come from this is withdrawing a lot while honour whoring, keeping no war points and ability to challenge on whoever you want all age to continue whoring. I can see this being a major issue so need something to limit this.


Race/Pers:

Halfing gaining prop, I don't understand reason for this. Last thing needed on an already hard to break turtle is ability to get more honour stacks. They are already immune to crytal dragons, no need for this to get them honour. They are really strong as is.

Ent gaining BL and MS, I don't understand reason for this. They are already incredibly strong and hard to deal with unless you focus 100% on them. BL makes them have to send even less and keep 150 dpa home still. And MS kills troops on the opponent making them have to send even less again. Trees shouldn't lust for blood or play with fire.

Dwarf is dull as usual, kinda needs a re-write on what it's role is. No idea what it's good for anymore with elves 7 spec going to dragons.

Faery losing home coverage is rough, though the +15% from rogue effect helps i guess...

Sage, don't think any change was required but if felt it was too strong then fine.

Elves enhanced LL still working OOW, and to be honest, is the most ridiculously overpowered bonus of any race, even if just held to war only.
