New Shrines Research Tree Become a master of the Shrines with Research to improve your ability to take and hold Shrines for your Clan! Updated Biome Research Trees As part of the Content update, the Biome Research Trees will be seeing some changes. These tweaks are aimed to tighten end game power gaps while rewarding player investment. New Avatars to Unlock By completing a significant portion of the Biome Research trees, players will be able to unlock the new Biome Mastery Avatars to show off their accomplishment and commitment to their favorite Biome! Complete the Biome Mastery research to earn an Avatar from the accompanying Feat. Improved Bonuses per Level Many of the Research items in these trees will be getting higher starting bonuses and bigger bonuses at each level, ending at the same max bonus. This change will give more bonuses to players who are still working on their research trees, while bringing the bonuses for players closer together. Ally System Changes Allies are a player driven economy, providing huge bonuses. We love the system, but there are extreme cases where the power earned through allies led to an imbalance in the game. To better balance the Ally system, we will be making changes so that Kingdoms of Heckfire can continue to grow and release content for years to come. Change #1 - Capping PVP Ally Bonus To better balance Ally Bonus with the other system in the game, there will be a cap on the maximum bonus that can be applied in PVP battles. You will be able to increase the cap through upgrading your Waritorium, new research we have added to the game, as well as the new Ally Bonus ability that some Dragons will give. This cap will only apply to PVP, and will be set such that it affects only 0.02% of our active players. As the game grows, we will add new opportunities to further extend this cap. Our goal is to ensure that Ally bonus is balanced with the research and dragon bonuses. Change #2 - Updating Ally Bonus Research The Bonus from Allies and Bonus to Allies research are getting updated to offer a flat +2.5% bonus at each level, and will cap out at 50% bonus at level 20. This helps bring the bonuses from Allies back inline what’s available from other areas of the game. Change #3 - Weekly Gold Transfer Cap The below items will have a rolling cap on the amount you can send or receive that refills every hour. Our goal is to only limit transfers that are outside of normal game actions. Most players will never hit this cap. The following items will have their own cap: Gold Sent Gold Received Gold Looted (as the defender) If you perform an action that will exceed this cap, the game will warn you. In addition, we will be reducing the gold returned when you drop an ally you have recently hired. After holding onto an ally for 7 Days, you will be able to get the full drop ally refund. Player Compensation Full details on player compensation will be made available when these changes are made live on Wednesday, July 18th.
