Thank you to everyone who helped test the war events today. We learned quite a bit to make it a more enjoyable experience in the future.
A few things I noticed:
- Skirmish stones and Town Towers need more health points.
- Town towers need to be reduced in size so you can't hide inside it.
- We reduced time limits to 25 minutes to help defending clans. This may have been too short and 1 hour too long. Opinions?
We are planning on having the war events be scheduled automatically by the server to prevent clans from choosing unfavorable times for their opponents. The initial thoughts are to have 1-3 events during the week and then having the standard relic raid on the weekend. We will need to find favorable times for the events for everyone and are looking for suggestions from the community.
War Events in the future will provide much more Hero Points than they did during the test. The increased Hero Point reward for finishing the event is to encourage playing the objective.
Please feel free to respond to this post with your feedback, ideas, opinions, and suggestions for how you would like to see the war event system implemented. Event time suggestions are greatly appreciated.
There are 3 different types of war events. The goal and instruction for each has been provided below so that everyone understands how to play.
Accessing the war events is done at the War Counselor in the various beginner towns.
The Battle Skirmish is the most common type of war event. Each team has 3 massive stones that they must protect from being destroyed by the enemy team. Whichever team destroys the enemy team's stones first will win the event.
The Stronghold Assault event is based on relic capture. This is a one-sided event in that one team is defending and the other is attacking. The defending team must prevent their relic from being captured and the attacking team must attempt to capture it. If the relic is captured within the time limit then the attacking team wins. If the attacking team fails to capture the relic before the time limit is reached then the defending team will win.
To capture the relic, the attacking team must first hit the two switches converting them to the attacking team. Once they are switched, they can then attack the relic vault. Upon destroying the relic vault, the person who did the final blow will receive the relic. That person must then successfully escort the relic to the capture point and win the event.
The switches will change based on which team most recently hit them. That means the defenders can hit the switches and change them to their side. If either switch is in the defenders control, the attacking team will no longer be able to attack the relic vault. Control over both the switches and the vault is required to win.
This event currently has a 1 hour time limit.
The Town Siege event is also a one-sided event. One team will be the attacker and the other the defender. The attacker must destroy the 4 Town Tower's within the time limit to win the event. The defending team must defend the towers until the time limit expires.
This event currently has a 1 hour time limit.
We will be testing the War Events on September 11th at Midnight server time [View this event in your time zone].
War events are Clan vs. Clan and will give prestige and hero points to players. Clans will also gain prestige. This is only a test event in order to make sure the system is working correctly. A small amount of Hero points and prestige will be awarded however.
Recently a warrior created and uploaded a very nice promotional video. You guys may have seen a link to it on our home page via the twitter feed. Here is the link in case you did not see it yet: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ETrTB0X ... e=youtu.be
This gave us the idea of holding a Promotional Video making contest! The video can be of anything you like as long as it is promoting Five Clans Online. Use your imagination and creativity to make something awesome. The winner of the contest will receive a 5 comped weapon, everything included and provided by us. There may be more than 1 winner if it is a very close call or some consolation prices!
We do ask that you include a link to our website and/or the Five Clans Online logo like it was used on the video above. If you would like to use the FCO Logo for your video here is a link to it: http://i.imgur.com/tJ6Li08.png. Once your video is made and uploaded please send me a link to your video to submit your entry. You can email it to me at email@example.com or if you have facebook feel free to add me (firstname.lastname@example.org) and you can submit your entry by PMing me there as well. Good luck and have fun!
It has been a while since the legendary weapon, The Snake Saber, was released and since then a few of them have decayed. There are currently Six Snake Sabers available and in need of a new master. Mad Saber will be wondering the world of Five Clans tomorrow in search for six worthy warriors to claim one of these Legendary weapons. Those who can defeat him will be able to loot one of these sabers for themselves. Will you be one of them?
The event is simple: we will give clues to the whereabouts of Mad Saber and warriors must then search for him and try to defeat him. Once he is defeated he will move to a new location and await the next fight.
