The Nhur Athemon Sequence

Edam
So I want to clarify a couple of points:
  1. the competition is a first past the post thing where the first settlement to complete its nominated hex wins
  2. there is just one "prize" and no other rewards for completion of the challenge once there is a winner (other then good loot)

Good point! Assigned hexes to settlements takes away the problem of so many settlements with only a few players per. smile

I've only mentioned one prize qualification/rule so far (first to complete the sequence), but we do plan on giving out prizes for other forms of progress as well. We haven't worked out all the details yet, but wanted to get out the list of assigned hexes on the early side so settlement leaders could get back to us with any requested changes before things start. We're focused on getting the build put together that makes this all possible first (almost ready to deploy), then we'll work out the full prize rules and get them posted before the event starts.

In terms of larger alliances as opposed to settlements, our general plan is to leave it up to each alliance how much they want to cooperate within their alliance, or even with other alliances, and how to divide up the spoils from such cooperation.

The escalation raiding holdings? That is something I missed. Do those happens on a schedule? That is perhaps something I join in, helping the defence, dropping slowing arrows from safe distance…

Yup, this was added at the same time as raids. Every PvP day where the outposts are vulnerable, there's a chance that waves of invading monsters will try to raid the hex. If they do, that even breaks hex protection for the day. The highest chance for this to happen is when the hex has an escalation running in neighboring hex, in which case mobs from that escalation will attempt a raid. If not, there's a smaller chance that waves of the basic default mobs in that hex will attempt a raid. If the raid succeeds, the mobs steal that day's bulk resource production for that hex. If the outposts are already overrun, then there won't be a raid, because the holding is instead open to being captured.

Ah! Cool,I belive that it is excellt that having an escalation around means is not just a place for harvesting loot. I need to read up on how the PvP window works tho …

Bob, Is the event starting on Thursday or Friday? Also when are the further details coming?
Just trying to get an idea in advance if possible since Thursday is just 2 days away.

We're still planning to start on Thursday. I've just now started testing the build out on Zog. Assuming all goes well, we'll deploy that build to Live on Wednesday, then kick off the event on Thursday.

We'll be focused on testing for much of today, but should be able to get the rest of the details pulled together and posted tomorrow.

Thanks Bob just trying to be prepared. And you did say there will be more prizes than just the grand prize right?
I'll try to be patient smile

Would be great if there were some prizes that a single person settlement could earn. There are more than a few of those ABOOT the map now.

We plan on having a mix so everyone can have a meaningful goal.
