    Bonjour French Warriors,

    As some of you on France 1 might have noticed, our Attack of the Shapeshifters event did not run as intended over last weekend. We deeply apologize for the circumstances this has caused for all active participants in that event. It was truly very unfortunate to have this issue happen, but we are going to make it up to you.

    The event is running again correctly again and beginning today, we will compensate every effected player on France 1 their lost troops! You should get an in-game message about it soon.

    Again, apologies for the inconvenience and all the best for you in the Four Kingdoms.

    Your Empire Family

    Dear Community,

    A very hot Summer came to our great Empire and together with it a season that puts our residents, your troops and yourself, as well as an epic event into motion. Epic indeed, for it shall be something worthy of our king and his entire kingdom! Get ready and prepare yourselves, for we proudly present to you our upcoming tournament: The Kingdoms Cup! 



    New Event: The Kingdoms Cup 

    Fierce warriors and athletes of our Great Empire, welcome to The Kingdoms Cup! 

    This tournament will not only be a challenge for you and your fellow players. It will especially test how good your teamwork skills are! 
    Do you want to know what we mean by that? Well, let us jump right into the fray and get down to business! 


    How does this event work? 

    The Kingdoms Cup is a tournament, which is based on the FIFA World Cup! There will be qualifications, group-phases, finals, etc. and to give you a proper overview of how this will actually play out in our games Empire: Four Kingdoms and Empire, let's take a quick look at the event structure for a moment: 

    Stage

    Date

    Description

    Server Qualification

    14th of June - 18th of June

    The top 10 servers go into the next stage

    Alliance Qualification

    18th of June - 22nd of June

    The top 4 alliances of the previously qualified servers go into the next stage

    Group Phase

    22nd of June - 25th of June

    The 1st and 2nd of the groups go into the next stage

    Best of 16

    25th of June - 29th of June

    The winning alliances go into the next stage

    Quarter Finals

    29th of June - 2nd of July

    The winning alliances go into the next stage

    Semi Final

    2nd of July - 6th of July

    The winning alliances go into the next stage

    Game Intern Finals

    6th of July - 11th of July

    The winning alliance goes into the next stage

    Grand Finals

    11th of July - 16th of July

    The winning alliance gets the trophy

     So all servers will participate in the Kingdoms Cup from the beginning. They will fight for the best points and try to qualify for the next phase. At the end of this Server Qualification, the Top 10 global servers will make it to the next phase. For this first stage only: all of the Top 10 servers will get the Gold rewards, while all the other servers that did not make it will get the Silver Rewards. 

    The next phase hails the beginning of the competition between all Alliances from those Top 10 qualified servers: The Alliance QualificationOnly the Top 4 Alliances per server will qualify for the next phase, so that makes 40 Alliances in total, to enter into our next phase, the so-called Group Phase of the Kingdoms Cup. This phase will get even more competitive: We will have 8 groups with 5 Alliances each and only 2 Alliances per group will qualify for the next phase. 

    The so-called Best of 16 phase starts the Knockout Rounds, where Alliances will directly compete with each other for who can make the highest point score. Only the winners of those 1v1 encounters will qualify for the next round and this will apply as well for the next phases, which are the Quarter-finals and the Semi-finals. 

    In our Game Intern Finals, the two best alliances from Empire: Four Kingdoms will battle against each other for the overall game winner. But as you see, there is still the Grand Finals phase left, so let us talk about that for a moment. The Grand Finals will be an incredible battle where the Game Intern Finals winner from Empire: Four Kingdoms and the Game Intern Finals winner from Empire will clash against each other and only one of them will rise as the overall World Champion of the Kingdoms Cup. 

    There is a very special twist during the Grand Finals though: the Top 10 servers of each game will help their respective game Champion out and support him/her during his final battle. 
    This means that the Empire: Four Kingdoms Champion will be accredited with the overall average point sum of the Empire: Four Kingdoms Top 10 servers, while the Empire Champion will be accredited with the overall average point sum of the Empire Top 10 servers

    So that's all about how the event will work, but let us go on with what you will be able to win during the course of the Kingdoms Cup. 

    We would also like to point out, that during the course of the Kingdoms Cup, we will always count the points of the respectively running events. In order to explain this we would like to give you a short example: 

    If you take a look into the event plan, then you can see that the Alliance Qualification will be running at the same as the Nomad Invasion, so all the event specific points (e.g. for the Nomad Invasion) that players can get during that period will be counted towards the qualification ranking. This means that if your server excels during that period - makes a lot of points in the Nomad Invasion - and makes it to the global Top 10 of our servers then you have successfully qualified for the next phase. 

    The same principle applies for all of the other events and their respective stages (e.g. points during Samurai Invasion for the Quarter Finals, points during the Nomad Invasion for the Semi-Finals etc.)!

    What can I win?

    The distribution of the Kingdoms Cup rewards will be based on what you all know from previous Battle of Nations, but there will be two components this time around. On the one hand we have the Alliance Competition and on the other hand, we will have the overall Server Competition for each respective stage. 

    First, we would like to present to you the rewards for the Alliance Competition: 

    Because of our tournament structure, there will be rewards for the winning alliances, but also for the losing ones. 
    In order to give you a quick overview of how and to whom the rewards will be distributed, you can take a look at the following list:

    The Kingdoms Cup Decorations: 

    We will give away the Guard of honor decoration to all of our players, as a participation gift: 



    Guard of honor, 100 Public order


    Depending on how far you can get in the tournament and how much points your servers can make, you will have the chance to win the following decorations: 


    Field of glory, 250 Public order

     


    Masters Cup, 350 Public order




    Grail of the defensive rock, 500 Public order




    Chalice of the hattrick hero, 700 Public order



    The Kingdoms Cup, 900 Public order

     


    Important:

    The point series which are counted for the last phase's Shapeshifter run during our Grand Finals will have their last reset on the 16th of July at 1:00 AM CEST, meaning that this is the time where we will count the last relevant points for the overall ranking! So make sure to finish your attacks before that.

    If your alliance qualifies during the Alliance Qualification, then you will be signed for it for the whole duration of the Kingdoms Cup. This means that all points that you generate during this event, will be counted to this Alliance and none else. If you decide to leave said Alliance during a later stage of the event, then your "new" Alliance will not profit from you as an additional member, because - as mentioned before -  your points will count only for the Alliance that you are a member of, during the moment of its qualification.

     

    How will you announce the rankings?

    We will announce the rankings on a daily basis via our Community Hub, which all of you can reach under the following domain https://empire.community! We will also do some Twitch Streams during the course of the Kingdoms Cup, not for each day, but for sure towards the highly competitive phases of our event. The exact timings for those will be announced by us on the Community Hub!

    Fierce warriors,

    The Kingdoms Cup started recently, but the first stage will end on the upcoming Monday, June the 18th. 
    There are only a few more days left to get into the Top Server rankings of Empire, in order to make it to the Top 10 during the Server Qualifications. 

    Therefore we are giving you all a ruby payment doubler, which should give you a good push towards reaching that goal! 

    Today, Friday the 15th of June, every player level 10+ received a Ruby Payment Doubler! 
    This means that for one of your purchases we will give you an extra 100% on top, regardless of when and how many rubies you purchase! You will receive your gift automatically after you login to the game and can cash it in at any time!

    Keep going strong, stay fit and fight like a champion, so that you can qualify for the next stage! 

    Best regards, 

    Your Empire Family

    Hi all,

    We have just reset the nomad invasion due to an issue with the royal quest campaign. Unfortunately this did not fix the issue - we are working on this. 

    The points made in the previous run are gone but you retained all the activity rewards during that ~2hr runtime.

    Apologies for any inconvenience caused.

    Hi all,

    In relation to the above statement regarding ruby doublers, I need to clarify that doublers were only given to those who did not have an active doubler at the time on Friday. If you had doublers left, you did not receive a further doubler. 

    Apologies for the confusion.

  • SeleneSelene Posts: 1,561
    UPDATE ON THE ABOVE

    It has been decided that the root cause of the problem needs to be tackled and so it needs to be fixed directly on the server side. Therefore we will have a short downtime today, only for this hotfix BUT there will be also the planned content update (with another downtime) later on.

    We are currently preparing the first downtime. more info will follow.
  • SeleneSelene Posts: 1,561

    UPDATE

    We will have the server hotfix at 13:45 CEST and with that we will also restart the nomads to run properly on all servers. This downtime will last approximately 30minutes. 
  • AlpinoloAlpinolo Posts: 3,787
    Hey guys,

    As announced, we did a smaller server hotfix at 1:45 pm CEST to solve some issues with our Royal Quest campaign and the Nomads Invasion.

    Unfortunately, all progress for the Nomads invasion has been lost due to that fix and the restart. The Activity rewards have been granted but the points are reset for this runtime.

    Apologies for the inconvenience.

    Best,
    Mario/Alpinolo

  • AlpinoloAlpinolo Posts: 3,787
    Just to clear things up:

    We fixed the Royal Quest campaign with the hotfix at 1:45 pm CEST. The Royal Quests are working as intended again. Due to the first quest which includes the Nomads Invasion we also had to restart the Nomads Invasion on all servers. This restart did not happen yet and will be done at around 3:45 pm CEST today!

    Again, the activity rewards still count, you got everything you managed to achieve during that runtime but with the restart, all points are reset and the event starts over again.

    Best,
    Mario/Alpinolo

    Hey all, 

    Unfortunately, ticket creation via the GGS website (https://www.goodgamestudios.com/) doesn't work at the moment due to technical issues. 

    Therefore players can only create a ticket out of The game via: Settings (lower menu bar) -> Support

    Fierce warriors,

    the Kingdoms Cup is getting more intense with each passing day. 

    We want to hand out a special gift to you, as a little help for our second stage, in the form of a ruby payment doubler! This payment doubler will only be given to players that do not have any payment doublers active at the time of said payment doubler's distribution. We will hand them out today, Friday the 22nd of June.

    This means that all players without any payment doubler by today - Friday the 22nd of June - will get a new one, while players with active payment doublers won't! The payment doubler itself will work out like always, meaning that for one of your purchases we will give you an extra 100% on top, regardless of when and how many rubies you purchase! You will receive your gift automatically after you login to the game and can cash it in at any time!

    Keep going strong, fight bravely and we wish you all the best, so that you can qualify for the next stage!

    Best regards,

    Your Empire Family

    Hey guys,

    To assure everyone a smooth and careless reward distribution for all running and planned events, we are going to maintain all servers in the course of this afternoon, between 2 pm and 4 pm CEST.

    The maintenance will last approx. 15-30 minutes. During that time the servers are not reachable.

    Apologies for the inconvenience.

    Brave warriors, 

    We recently encountered a bug which is linked to our "Khan Dorgo's" equipment set. Apparently, it is currently possible to put gems into the following equipment pieces: 

    Horseman armor
    Karakh sword
    Dorgo's mask
    Dorgo's seal

    Putting gems into the aforementioned temporary equipment pieces should not be possible and we want to fix this bug with our next update.

    Hey guys,

    The Festival of the Lotus King has finally started and we hope you will enjoy it. Of course, you are a real warrior, all of us are and you might have already noticed that the previously announced Treasures of the elephant cult set does not have the exact same graphics as posted above. Well, unfortunately, these new graphics are currently missing in-game and are being replaced with so-called "placeholder" assets BUT all the effects on this set are working as intended, so do not worry about that  (which means, please do not contact our support regarding this).
      
    We are aiming to fix this display bug probably next week and then you can finally enjoy this set entirely.

    Apologies for the inconvenience.

    Your Empire Family

    Hey guys,

    We are going to have a short server maintenance this noon between 12 pm and 2 pm CEST. Food will be frozen during this approx. 30-minute long downtime.

    Apologies for the inconvenience!

    Best,
    Mario/Alpinolo
