Hello, everyone! As you may remember, the summary of the previous meeting with our game designers contained our promise to consider some ways of fixing the so-called 'Unkillable teams' and doing something about incessant Clan hopping for farming Clan Bosses Chests. 

These changes were requested by many of you, and rightfully so. The current state of things in the Clan Bosses area (the abuse of the fact that we can now switch from one Clan to another without restrictions) directly affects the game balance, and not in a really positive way. 

We have already announced how we are going to adjust the Clan Bosses' performance when fighting Unkillable teams. As for the Clan hopping subject, what we are going to do is limit the number of CB Chests that a player can receive in 24 hours. So, if you have already claimed your reward in one Clan, you won't be able to claim the reward on the same CB difficulty in another Clan. 

Now, what we would like to stress is that we are going to watch closely how the whole CB meta changes after these adjustments have come into force. If we see some deviations from the balanced game processes we will take actions right away. This is why your feedback right now is as important as ever.

If you nerf clan hopping, you need to address the issue of all members getting top chest in CB in the  same patch.


Otherwise clans will be forced to split into two groups of 15/30 members, which will piss off alot of people.


Definition of shooting yourself in the foot.

These changes were requested by our CEO who saw it as a loss of earnings from the communities Whales, and rightfully so. The current state of things in the Clan Bosses area (the abuse of the fact that we can now switch from one Clan to another without restrictions) directly affects the games revenue, and not in a really positive way.

We have already announced how we are going to adjust the Clan Bosses' performance when fighting Unkillable teams.

So, if you have already claimed your reward in one Clan, you won't be able to claim the reward on the same CB difficulty in another Clan.

Now, what we would like to stress is that we are going to watch closely how much revenue we lose over this whole CB meta changes before and after these adjustments have come into force. If we see some fluctuations in our revenue and it deviates from our forecasted earnings we will take actions right away. This is why your expenditure right now is as important as ever.

The way I read it this won’t be an issue. They aren’t stopping clan hopping per say. They are simply limiting the amount of chests you can get in a day. So clan members can hop to another clan. Get top chest. Then hop back. Everyone still gets a chest (or x 2 for killing UNM boss). 


This may in fact actually help other clans that struggle to completely finish off the boss. They can advertise that they need help. And someone whose clan has already killed CB can hop over to help. And get their chest.

Cirilla, what really needs to stop are 3 day events and tournaments, especially during the work week


To get an epic tome I would have to play 4 hours a day, that‘s impossible to do and really annoys me


I have spent a lot of money until now, but refuse to give Plarium another cent until this is rectified

Great news. Clan hopping got completely out of hand. Despite the reaction is very late, I'm glad you intervened.
