This is how it will go....

attacks and weakening blows will rip through the server until the last few minutes and then the biggest leagues will take beacons and hold them so once it ends no league can take it back effectively until next 90% revive... this is the opposite of the horrible flag tournament.... RIP forever beacons now beacons will be more like "beacon blocks" you gain 10 this time next massacre you fall to 3 the maybe you get back to 8 next time.

in summary

RIP beacons

RIP defense

Thanks for bringing it to Stormfall despite all the feedback to the contrary from the players. Nice work.

Hopefully it will generate the PvP you desire, result in lost troops that coiners decide to buy back and increase revenues. That is the only thing that matter right........


From my understanding, seemingly less biased against commerce, it looks like coiners can revive 90% of their units lost against other lords just as everyone else can. The 10% not recovered free are a relatively small portion of total troop strength and I suspect, are within reasonable loss rates to be expected by an active player of small to moderate strength. I see the "devious" intent simply as a way to interest more players in league play in general and fighting for beacons specifically.

  
If you don't make mistakes you are doing engineering wrong. If you don't fix the mistakes you are doing engineering way wrong. If you don't admit you make mistakes you aren't doing engineering.

What about the players that are on vacation?

will they have a time limit to revive there units?


If so then I feel sorry for those who go on vacation then they come home to find out there entire defense has been wiped out and everyone got there troops back but them.


that would really suck I spent so much money on my army. to think what can happen while taking some time off.

I hope there is no time limit to revive your free troops

Kick the guy out first and send invitation and mail explaining what's going on. The units will go back to the castle and safe in catacomb.

Q&A

1. It states that in a league attack, troops will go back to the individuals catacombs. Does this mean the 90% revival doesn't apply to league attacks?

90% revival applies to all PvP losses on Beacons during the Massacre, including League attacks. 

2. It seems we all have different massacre events and different rules there.

Same event and same rules for all servers. You can revive 90% Units with Sapphires DURING the Tournament, and for free - AFTER the Tournament. It's 90% for all servers. I guess the info on a ss was fixed right away.

3. CAN WE REVIVE 90% OF ALL TROOPS FOR FREE OR JUST OFF-TROOPS?

Offensive, Defensive, Spying and Legendary Units. You can revive ALL types of Units for free after the Tournament.

4. CAN WE REVIVE 90% OF THE TROOPS THAT WE SEND IN LEAGUE ATTACKS OR JUST ATTACKS BY SINGLE PLAYERS?

Both: League and Single attacks.

5. HOW MUCH TIME WILL WE HAVE AFTER THE END OF THE EVENT TO REVIVE FOR FREE?

7 days.

6. Why are ingame and forum discription to the same event so different ? Is there a reason for it ? You cant tell it in game like that and in forum like that it make, sure that all lose the trust in the discription if you get from forum this information and the ingame discription Plarium put in game for us are like day and night.

On Forum we have posted the News. Right now you can also check the guide to the Massacre. Ingame information is more detailed than the News. 

7. What about the players that are on vacation? will they have a time limit to revive there units?

They will have 7 days to revive them. However, if League leadership is concerned about their Units, they can kick those players from Leagues and their units will go back to their Catacombs. You have 2 days since the announcement to prepare to this Tournament.

From what I've heard there is no reward whatsoever. I could be wrong though.

This is a chance for people to destroy hard work for fame and defenders to be severely damaged by enemies who would normally fear retaliation. This is going to be a destructive contest for gain only by event planner. I disagree with the intent of the event regardless of it's length.

The mega-coiners (especially on Untamed) are just insane enough to revive 90% for sapphires during the event and revive them again (after dying many times) at the end for free

There are no rewards for this tournament (according to research on Total Dom servers and forums) so why would normal players wish to compete?
I don't fancy losing over 10% of my beacon defense and most others would agree, but we are a captive audience, unable to recall our units. Don't forget that revives are always rounded down so you will never get 90% of total losses. Also losses from beacons, forts and fireballs are often random. They ignore the normal combat algorithm because plarium cannot be bothered to do the basic arithmetic

What we need is a 12 hour Beacon Protection spell :)

But fame dont give you the lost 10% back or give you instant recallers, auto hiders or saphires...

Fame is right now nothing worth in the game, sorry there i must say its a bad deal

so we can kick people out who are on vacation or due to personal reasons cannot be in the game


nice - we get to leave them without our league banner so they can be preyed upon and deconstruct our league membership at the same time

Do the troops stay in keep if you do this ? If yes it would mean they would lose their troops coming home from beacon in the next PvP too. Seems we have to ruin our members, our leagues and the last bit honor for $$$
