Escalating Escalations

Bob
The first batch of Stage 5 escalations has launched! 4 hexes made it to Stage 5, with 5 more to Stage 4, 1 more to Stage 3, and even 2 more getting to Stage 1. That makes 12 hexes cleared yesterday, just shy of yesterday's number. Very good progress toward clearing 10 Over the Crowns, but things will almost definitely be slowing down given how long it can take to clear a Stage 5. Still, there's a fair amount of time left, so steady progress should get us to that goal.

Edit 1: Updated to fix a math bug that overstated the totals reaching Stages 3-5.

The first Stage 6 escalation has launched! 1 hex made it to Stage 6, with 2 more to Stages 4-5, and 1 more to Stage 3. That makes 6 hexes cleared yesterday, less than the previous day, but way more difficult than the previous day on average. There was also good progress made on some of the other Stage 5's, so I expect we'll be seeing a few more Stage 6's within the next day or so.

The first Stage 7 escalation has launched. 1 hex made it to Stage 7, with 1 more to Stage 6, 2 more to Stage 5, 3 more to Stage 3, and even 2 more to Stage 1! That makes 9 hexes cleared yesterday. Excellent progress given how much tougher some of the escalations are now and all the other distractions going on.

Congratulations to Carpe Noctem for clearing the first Over the Crown! Just 9 more to go and everyone getting +3 structures for clearing Stages 6 and/or 7 will get +4 versions as well!

For a distracting day like yesterday, with so much effort required to clear a Stage 7 escalation, lots of additional progress was made. Though no more hexes made it to Stage 7, 1 more hex made it to each of Stages 1-6, for a total of 6 hexes cleared.

Excellent progress yesterday, with a total of 8 hexes cleared. That's particularly good considering that most hexes have now moved beyond the initial stages. 2 more hexes made it to Stage 6, 2 more to Stage 5, 1 more to Stages 3-4, and 2 more to Stage 2.

There are now 12 days left to clear 10 Stage 7 escalations. Given where all the hexes are at now, that means getting another 9 hexes through Stage 7, 9 hexes through Stage 6, and 5 hexes through Stage 5. That's a pretty tall order given the amount of effort that goes into clearing an Over the Crown. Alternatively, to clear 20 Stage 6 escalations, we'd need to get another 19 hexes through Stage 6, 15 hexes through Stage 5, 9 hexes through Stage 4, and 5 hexes through Stage 3. That's quite a few more escalations to clear, but generally easier ones, and might actually be easier to make happen. The second option also results in more Over the Crowns getting launched in total, which is its own kind of reward, though perhaps not as valuable as a +4 Medium Structure Kit.

Edit 2: Added 1 to number of days left.

Slower progress yesterday, with just 4 hexes cleared, but at least one of them gave us a new Over the Crown. 1 more hex made it to Stage 7, 1 more to Stage 4, and 2 more to Stage 1.

There are now 11 days left to clear 10 Stage 7 escalations. Given where all the hexes are at now, that means getting another 9 hexes through Stage 7, 8 hexes through Stage 6, and 5 hexes through Stage 5. That's a pretty tall order given the amount of effort that goes into clearing an Over the Crown. Alternatively, to clear 20 Stage 6 escalations, we'd need to get another 18 hexes through Stage 6, 15 hexes through Stage 5, 9 hexes through Stage 4, and 4 hexes through Stage 3.

I discovered today that there was an error in my spreadsheets that tallied up the number of hexes at Stages 3-5. I'll see about correcting the past posts to get those numbers right, but for now, here's the total numbers that made it to each stage:

  • Stage 1: 35
  • Stage 2: 29
  • Stage 3: 23
  • Stage 4: 16
  • Stage 5: 11
  • Stage 6: 5
  • Stage 7: 2
  • Finished: 1

Slightly better progress yesterday, with 5 hexes cleared, and most of that at the high end. 2 more hexes made it to Stage 7, 1 more to Stage 6, and 2 more to Stage 3.

There are now 10 days left to clear 10 Stage 7 escalations. Given where all the hexes are at now, that means getting another 9 hexes through Stage 7, 6 hexes through Stage 6, and 4 hexes through Stage 5. Alternatively, to clear 20 Stage 6 escalations, we'd need to get another 16 hexes through Stage 6, 14 hexes through Stage 5, 9 hexes through Stage 4, and 4 hexes through Stage 3. Things are getting pretty tight here, probably time to bring out the good ammo and other consumables, as well as the ultimate weapon: cooperation.

Here's the total numbers that made it to each stage:

  • Stage 1: 35
  • Stage 2: 29
  • Stage 3: 25
  • Stage 4: 16
  • Stage 5: 11
  • Stage 6: 6
  • Stage 7: 4
  • Finished: 1

Edit 1: Added 1 to number of days left.

Congratulations to University Commons for clearing the second Over the Crown! Just 8 more to go and everyone getting +3 structures for clearing Stages 6 and/or 7 will get +4 versions as well!

Excellent progress yesterday, with 7 hexes cleared, and again most of that at the high end. In addition to the cleared Stage 7, 2 more hexes made it to Stage 6, 1 more to Stage 5, and 3 more to Stage 4.

There are now 9 days left to clear 10 Stage 7 escalations. Given where all the hexes are at now, that means getting another 8 hexes through Stage 7, 6 hexes through Stage 6, and 2 hexes through Stage 5. Alternatively, to clear 20 Stage 6 escalations, we'd need to get another 16 hexes through Stage 6, 12 hexes through Stage 5, 8 hexes through Stage 4, and 1 hex through Stage 3.

Here's the total numbers that made it to each stage:

  • Stage 1: 35
  • Stage 2: 29
  • Stage 3: 25
  • Stage 4: 19
  • Stage 5: 12
  • Stage 6: 8
  • Stage 7: 4
  • Finished: 2

Edit 1: Added 1 to number of days left.

Less hexes were cleared yesterday, but there was some good progress on the existing Over the Crowns, so we're still on track for clearing 10 of those. 2 more hexes made it to Stage 7, and 1 more each to Stages 1 and 4.

There are now 8 (wasn't counting the last day correctly, will add 1 to previous posts to fix that) days left to clear 10 Stage 7 escalations. Given where all the hexes are at now, that means getting another 8 hexes through Stage 7, 4 hexes through Stage 6, and 2 hexes through Stage 5. Alternatively, to clear 20 Stage 6 escalations, we'd need to get another 14 hexes through Stage 6, 12 hexes through Stage 5, and 8 hexes through Stage 4.

Here's the total numbers that made it to each stage:

  • Stage 1: 36
  • Stage 2: 29
  • Stage 3: 25
  • Stage 4: 20
  • Stage 5: 12
  • Stage 6: 8
  • Stage 7: 6
  • Finished: 2

Congratulations to Keeper's Pass and Caer Coedwig for clearing the third and fourth Over the Crowns! Just 6 more to go and everyone getting +3 structures for clearing Stages 6 and/or 7 will get +4 versions as well!

Impressive progress yesterday, with 10 hexes cleared, and almost all of that at the high end. In addition to the cleared Stage 7's, 1 more hex made it to Stage 7, 2 more each to Stages 5-6, 1 more to Stage 4, and 2 more to Stage 2.

There are now 7 days left to clear 10 Stage 7 escalations. Given where all the hexes are at now, that means getting another 6 hexes through Stage 7 and 3 hexes through Stage 6. Alternatively, to clear 20 Stage 6 escalations, we'd need to get another 13 hexes through Stage 6, 10 hexes through Stage 5, and 6 hexes through Stage 4.

Here's the total numbers that made it to each stage:

  • Stage 1: 36
  • Stage 2: 31
  • Stage 3: 25
  • Stage 4: 21
  • Stage 5: 14
  • Stage 6: 10
  • Stage 7: 7
  • Finished: 4
