Nords Is Now Better Than Ever! 

Lord Marshal! A blizzard has swept into Shingård and brought with it some fantastic new changes! Take a look!

1. Blood Pacts

From now on, the majority of Blood Pacts DO NOT DEPEND on the Level of the Hall of Records. That’s right, Lord Marshals – you no longer need to wait for that Building to upgrade in order to upgrade your Blood Pacts. Additionally, the Levels of certain Blood Pacts no longer depend on the Levels of other Blood Pacts, meaning that if you want to upgrade the stats of one particular Unit, you can upgrade the relevant Blood Pact without having to first upgrade other, unrelated Blood Pacts! Furthermore, while certain Blood Pacts now require Scrolls of Negotiation, those that do require it only at higher levels.

2. Construction

You will now only require Special Building Upgrade Items for the Aleworks and the Altar of Life when they have been upgraded to the highest Level.

You can now also have 4 Thralls instead of 2, thus adding to your overall construction queue and enabling you to construct or upgrade more Buildings simultaneously!

3. Raid Limits

Raid Limits have been increased! Now you can Raid as many as 500,000 Resources in a day instead of the previous 250,000!

4. Raid Attempts

You also get an ADDITIONAL 20 Raid attempts per day (30 instead of the regular 10)!

Great news such as this shouldn’t pass uncelebrated! Grab some Fire Ale and take advantage of these awesome changes to make your Stronghold stronger than ever!

Skald, loyal Bard to His Majesty and Awesomeness King Björn, the Mighty and Handsome

Great, the best is 4 Thralls instead of 2... this will boost our constructions. 3000 emeralds a thrall... didn't was 2500 emeralds ? ... did the cost increase with the numbers of thralls ? How many for a 4th thrall ? 


I spend lots of emeralds to upgrade Highcliff blood pact. Now it's almost free. Could we have some emeralds back considering this ? It was something like 1000 Scrolls of Negotiation 1 to get level 3, 500 Scrolls of Negotiation level 2 to reach level 4...

I am at day 199 continuous and this is a really great move on your game mgmt. Your decision should help alot of struggling players and most definitely will p#ss off many others. And rightly so - they have good reason for concern. I too spent lots of upgrades and coin for gaming pleasure. But in the end: this was LONG over due. Your "pricing" structure was very imbalanced from the start. But hey - it's your game and you have revised it. You cannot go back from here.


A sincere thank you shout out for this =^.^=


**EDIT ADD-ON**

1. Fix lag please

2. Reduce the % of Catacombs resource holding on dead accounts: what good is raiding 30 times (which is very nice now but becomes a job) if I could take more from the raid? Or allow some skill set (like miner) to be able to take more from such accounts to off-set that %. Miner skill set where you have to build it up; 5% / 10% / 15% up to 30% mining extra take from such raids.

3. Any chance of updating Battlegrounds to allow more of them versus just the 12? Some people only 'farm' certain levels to acquire best of level gear pieces.

Ive come to the conclusion its not entirely plariums fault, though adding all this extra bloat without fixing the existing problems probably is not helping. I very much doubt its ever going to get fixed. The word is that Flash will be dead soon anyway. What will we do then?

To Pardaillec,


Greetings. 

Each Thrall will cost more than the previous one.

The Emeralds cannot be given back.


To Streetrat,


If you're experiencing lags, please contact our Support Team and send them a HAR-file and tracert for investigation of the lag source.

The parameters of Catacombs cannot be changed.

As for the Battlegrounds, your idea is to give some more of them?

I don't know what game you guys are playing but I was one of the first people who sent in their HAR file as instructed and was given a robotic reply as expected along with closing my submission as "solved".. The game had pockets of light like you might get during a storm and the clouds open up to show the sun for a short minute(s). The game is still unbearably laggy most the time when i login. 


Your new changes to no longer require upgrade scrolls is a positive one for those who hadn't spent the money on their last 5 levels of bloodpacts and may give you a boost of joy from those benefiting from it and help in convincing new victims to play your game... but for those who have already spent the 100,000+ Emeralds on upgrade scrolls under the assumption that it was necessary for them in order to get that extra 10% boost you've once again just spit in their faces making major game changing modifications without any notice AT ALL, infact i still cannot find anywhere this change is even mentioned we are just expected to find out ourselves. I still have nearly 3000 tier 2 scrolls that i purchased well over 10k of emeralds just sitting there i cannot use or benefit from. Anyone who says the lag has gone away is not playing this game or not for more then 5 minutes anyways i login to the game about 2 or 3 times a day and I do try but atlast i get upset not only is the lag still there but the game continues to get these major player affecting updates without the players who pay for your overhead to be notified, then you got the mods on here who dont even play the game trying to tell us the lag is fixed. You guys been working for plarium so long i think you've been infected with their knack for bs

In Nords we have no stronghold skins, we have in pirates & in sparta and maybe some other as well. But i never seen any in nords so i believe we have none there.
