    Wow, these changes look pretty cool - I only play pve, but now Im actually kinda hyped for trying out my luck at pvp - nice work!

    There is a PvP Discord where you can get in touch with other PvP enthusiasts and probably will also find people who can introduce you into PvP.

    https://discord.gg/ZjSeh7HM


    I can also recommend you, to join the next season of the PvP League as this season sadly already starts on Monday :hypetrain:

  3. We are sorry for the current trouble with the running event.

     

    As this event was originally planned in rpve 4 and tested in 5 it seemed too easy and therefore we increased it to 6 before publishing.

     

    As it turned out the camp developments between 5 and 6 were drastically different and made the T3 an insane job.

     

    So we decided, to turn this whole event a bit and hotfixed the whole situation:

     

    We changed the difficulty requirement to minimum 2, you can now compete with any difficulty BUT the higher the difficulty the more weight it has in the leaderboard!

     

    We hope that this opens the event again to a wider player base and encourages you to try to push your limits on other difficulties.

     

     

    We are very happy for all your early feedback!

     

     

    TLDR:

     

    Difficulty minimum reduced to 2.

    Maximum is still 6.

    You can now participate with any difficulty, the higher the better.

    Leaderboard will be Difficulty>time

  4. Hello Skylords, Skyladies and other Skybeings.

    - You can freely swap around cards in those decks with cards in your collection to customize the decks to your liking. You can do this by clicking the tab in your inventory on the top left (see the image).

    Since there was also a race for fastest 2p 9s alltime on the same map last month, I can't wait to find out what the standings are for the contest.

    Will this only be announced in the stream or is there already a publication of the rankings for the contest?

    Hey Damo,

    A total ranking will be published on stream and after that also here in the forum.

    Even though the event isn't over yet - I'd like to bring my first point of feedback already.
    I feel like the event runtime is way too long. Imo 3 weeks+ just feels like it is stretching on forever. Especially considering the ruleset is relatively simple and straightforward. For events like the Guns of Lyr one where the ruleset was way more expansive I can understand a longer event runtime, even then 3 weeks might be a tad too long.

    Personally I would prefer a event runtime of 10-14 days for the "simple" competitions and maybe a couple days extra for something thats more complex.

     

    On 1/29/2022 at 2:33 PM, Mynoduesp said:

    100% agree.

    An event with a singel runtime of 15 minutes on average shoud not be held longer than 7 (max 10) days.

    Events with runtimes over 30 minutes and especially 3+ players can be held over a longer period like 14 days. Go give ppl the chance for optimisation, team coordination and team organisation.

    Only if the whole purpose of the event is multiplayer optimisation (rPvE MotM is such an event), then it could be run for a full month (without patches during uptime). But these events can easily be run in parallel.



    First of all, thank you two for your feedback. I really appreciate it.

    I agree, that a duration over 14 days can be too long for events.
    We are still trying to adjust the event durations and this time we went for the full rpve rotation to give the possibility to optimise.
    What we also shouldn't forget, is that many participants that aren't in the top 10 haven't enough time to always catch the current running events and therefore might miss events.


    In Conclusion:

    We will adjust the run time of events in the future and will try to find the sweet spot.
    Please keep giving us feedback, so we can improve our events!

    In the meantime:

    Thank you all for participating to this event, a stream date will soon be announced!

    If my first unit dies, can i spawn a new one?

    On 1/7/2022 at 5:17 PM, Minashigo Hiko said:

    Can you give an example to the rule?
    The first non-flying unit you spawn on your own will most likely have ground presence. If this unit dies you may NOT spawn another unit. It is not the unit type that has the allowance to be spawned; you are only allowed one single unit. It doesn't matter if this unit was a Batariel or Windweavers. This single squad is only allowed and may not be respawned once dead. So pick your unit wisely and keep it safe!

    Of course I can't speak for Hiko here, but I am quite sure that you are allowed to do that. But why would you want to take that handicap? 🙂

    You are completely right @Volin of course  @Earlygirl can participate solo if she/he wants to.

    You will just be in a very bad position compared to the others as you will be putted in the same ranking.

  10. Hello Skylords, Skyladies and other Skybeings.

    Welcome to the second official rPvE event!
    We hope you will have a lot of fun with this event!

    *FAQ / Questions you might have

    Spoiler

    What is ground presence?
    "Ground Presence is a term to describe an area of about 10m around any friendly building or unit where you can not only use cards, but also claim Power Wells and Monuments"(source: Skylords wiki)

    Simply said, ground presence gives you the ability to spawn units, build buildings and cast most non-arcane spells.

    What does count as an unit?
    Everything that is not a spell nor a building,

    Can you give an example to the rule?
    The first non-flying unit you spawn on your own will most likely have ground presence. If this unit dies you may NOT spawn another unit. It is not the unit type that has the allowance to be spawned; you are only allowed one single unit. It doesn't matter if this unit was a Batariel or Windweavers. This single squad is only allowed and may not be respawned once dead. So pick your unit wisely and keep it safe!

    Please note:
    The run is not over just because this unit dies, you just have then to work with arcane spells/skills, air units or buildings.

    Am I allowed to spawn or create units via a spell or ability?
    As long as these units don't give ground presence, yes.
    The only source of ground presence in your game should be the one unit you have chosen (per player).

    Is the Transformation of as example Twilight Minions to a Creeper allowed?
    This is sadly not allowed, as the transformation would create a new unit with ground presence.


    If you still have questions, please ask them below.

  11. NAME: You can replay the spawn Animation of units who have effects.
    DESCRIPTION: When you spawn a unit with a long spawn animation, as example Sunderer, you can spam spawn another unit on the exact same position and therefore replay the animation of the earlier spawned unit.
    You have to do this with an exact timing, but with longer spawn animations spamming it does also work.
    REPRODUCIBILITY: Always happens. To make it happen, just spam unit spawn on another

  13. Hey all,

    I am so sorry I didn't manage to upload the Video until now..

    I had some serious problems with my PC that caused to crash it.. I ordered a new PC part that arrived yesterday instead of the planned Thursday/Friday.

    Starting next week I am now finally able to finish the video, planned is Wednesday .
    We will also add a little "sorry" gift.
    Thank you for your understanding!

  14. Hey all,

    Sorry for the silence until now.

    I know @Majoraalready mentioned this but still:

    After reviewing your replays, we decided it is better to turn the upcomming event stream into a YouTube video.
    There are two reasons for this:

    1. We are planning an anniversary stream on the 17th and the earliest date I would be able to stream would be the 11th next week.
    2. Many replays were similar strategy-wise and not many participated (9 to be specific)

    Because of these reasons, we decided to do a YouTube video rather than a short Twitch stream.
    We already received some concerns, regarding what kind of content will be in the video.
    We can assure you that we plan to show everything that seems interesting for us all.
