New Event: The Outer Realms
As you all know, our scouts are normally occupied with getting some secret informations about your enemies or causing havoc by sabotaging them. But recently they'd been busy with a highly classified mission and only the king and his most trusted allies are in the know. So it's time to fill you in as well:
They recently discovered a secret passage in the Great Empire and it takes you directly to a new realm. A realm beyond the mountains which is known as the Outer Realms! The passage had to be build by hand though and is therefore very unstable and only accessible for a limited time.
But taking the risk and venturing in this uncharted realm certainly has its merits: there are treasures and rewards that would even put the treasuries of kings to shame. So what are you waiting for? It's time to conquer the Outer Realms, so let us fill you in on our new event:
New Event: The Outer Realms
The Outer Realms will be a time limited event which will enable you to compete against other players from around the world on a temporary event server! This event will be reachable from your live/main account and will direct you to a special temporary server.
Before we talk about the details of this event, let us first proceed with showing you how you'd be able to reach the Outer Realms in our game:
Clicking on the special symbol which will be located next to the ranking (highlighted by the red square) will open an overview dialogue which you can see above ("Overview" on the right side). All players level 20+ will be eligible to participate in this event, by clicking on the green "Enter Outer Realms" field. This will take you to the outer realms, where every player will have to begin with level 1.
Once you've clicked on the special event button in the Outer Realms, you'd be greeted by the overview dialogue again, only this time with the possibility of opening 1 additional tab: Clicking on the 2nd tab (highlighted by first red circle) will open your daily rankings, while clicking on the 3rd tab (highlighted by second red circle) will open your overall rankings:
If you want to return to your main castle again, then you'd only have to click on the "Return to main castle" button (as shown in the first overview-tab of the picture above).
How will this event work?
As mentioned before, this event is a time limited one, so it'd only be available for a certain period of time. Once you log in to the Outer Realms you will have to play through the Tutorial again and then you'll be ready to go for building your castle.
During this event you’ll be able to compete for unique rewards and there will be two simple aspects to this competition:
Build buildings + decorations
Engage in direct PvP fights against other castle lords!
The following tables will give you an overview about the crucial and important functions of our Outer Realms event.
Event Point Calculation
124.000 worldwide players
New Scoring System
Better be quick before the limit of 124.000 is reached! Our new scoring system focuses on might points which you get from buildings and decorations. Let’s take a look at how they’ll impact your scoring and also how our in-game shops will work during the Outer Realm event:
Changes to Buildings + Decorations
In-Game Shops & Rubies
All Buildings + Decorations
And here’s where the interesting aspect of this event takes place:
Buildings & decorations will give you the important might points, but you will be able to burn the ones of your enemies and vice versa.
So attacking your competitors will have a direct impact on their progress in the ranking system, but so will they have a direct impact on yours as well.
You better form a solid and strong army in order to defend yourself and crush your enemies decorations and buildings!
If you want to take a look at your rankings you’d always be able to find them as the following picture will show you:
All rewards that you’ll get, as well as all the remaining rubies that you’ll purchase during this event will be accredited and transferred to your main account, after the event ends.
There’s also a special twist in regards to our rewards:
You’ll only be able to get 1 x Top reward and not multiple! This means, that if you reach the Top 50 ranks, you’ll only get the Top 50 rewards and not the Top 200 and/or Top 500 ones (so it’s different to what you know from our invasion events)!
So once the Outer Realms event is over, all players and all their castles and progress will be wiped off the server and therefore will be deleted (remember that the rewards and purchased rubies will be transferred to your main account though.
All rubies that you’ve spent during the Outer Realms event will not be transferred!).
Due to technical restrictions there’ll be a couple of servers which will be excluded for this event, as you can see above under “server restrictions”, like e.g. Poland, Japan, China, et al.
Ranking and Scoring systems
We have now posted the details on how the ranking points are going to be given out, and the rewards you can collect for each rank tier. For more informations on the rewards and ranking points, click here
New Castle Skins
There will be new skins for your castles in our great Empire coming along with our Outer Realm event as well and their terrific looks are really a thrilling sight to behold!
You will be able to obtain them as a unique reward of our Outer Realms event and they are only cosmetic skins, which means, that there will be no stats bonuses for them. Those new castle skins are permanent, but you can't slot them with gems. Those castle skins will be rewards for our Top 1 and Top 50 players of this event!
You can discuss everything in the upcoming update in this thread here - looking forward to hearing your thoughts about the exciting new event!
