Season 1 comes to an end – Season 2 is about to start soon!
Commanders,

Season 1 will soon come to an end on December first and we are looking back on an incredible first veteran episode. The Veteran Server has time and again proven that it continues the fun, a new exciting way and a unique experience playing the game so far. In relation to the size and available slots, it's the most active world we ever had, even more, active than the World Championship, in terms of login and playtime. Needless to say, we are stunned by how well the community took the server and we are very glad it went through very smooth and without larger hickups.

Since the end of Season 1 is in sight already, we want to open up how the Season will exactly come to an end and what's going to happen next.

When the Season comes to an end beginning of December as soon as the countdown has run out, the Season will mark as complete and every participant on the Veteran Server will receive a participation badge. There will only be one badge for everybody who collected at least some VP, and no particular winners only badge this time. As soon as the Season has come to end, it will no longer be possible to collect Veteran Points, not via control hubs, killing of Guardian Bases and neither through PvP. Note, only points made at the exact moment of Season end will count, if you run a combat while the Season is running out, the points won't count.
After the Season finish, you will still be able to stay and play on the server and do whatever you like until we close the server.

Hall of Fame & Rankings.
During the next week, we will apply a first tech patch to the Veteran Server that will not have an impact on your gameplay, it will be a preparation for the Season end and add the Hall of Fame to the game. The Hall of Fame, however, will only become active once the Season has finished.
The Hall of Fame will have two columns: Season Overview and MVP (Most Valuable Players)

Season Overview
The Season Overview will list the winning Alliance per Season. Only the first place Alliance will be listed in that category. This means that after three Seasons, there will be the three number 1 ranked Alliances listed there.

Most Valuable Players
This tab will list all players that ever played in a Season and the amount of VP they collected across all Seasons. This is the real deal, there you can show everybody who's the boss. While the Season Overview only lists the winners Alliance per Season, this ranking will show every player and his contribution throughout the Season and the Seasons to come.

Permanent Alliance Rankings
Within the new Forum, we expect to go live very shortly, we will also add an Alliance Overview ranking that lists all Alliances and their collected VP. This list will manually be updated by us after every Season. We are currently looking for a proper place to also link this in a game later.

Season 2

Now to the most important details, the next Season. We decided to start a fresh server for every Season. Since we save Legacy Points and player data separately, we will not perform a reset of the current server and instead start a new World for Season 2. The procedure will be the very same as it was with the current world. Start the world, choose your faction and region, start at level 45 and take it from there. All player data will be loaded into the new Server and Season, like your Legacy Points. However, we decided against transferring existing Alliances into the new Season, Alliances will need to be recreated.

We know that the most important thing is to continue playing your Alliance with the same name, and I want to ensure all alliances and alliance leaders that we keep track over who is owning which alliance and manually will assist if cases as name stealing and trolling happen. That being said, this is a call out to potential trolls, if you intend to steal the name of your opponents alliance for fun, trolling or whatever, you may risk your game account and a permanent game ban.
The game team will be permanently present during the launch of Season 2 and will manually fix every case that comes up.

We are also excited to let you know that the dynamic hub feature, discussed here, is fully implemented into Season 2. That means that hubs closer to the center of the game now become active and inactive from time to time, and don't provide VP while inactive. When becoming active, Guardian Bases will respawn on all hub positions. With this change, we hope to add some more flexibility and make the game a little closer to the end.

Warning: for Season 2 – We might increase, decrease or adjust the difficulty of the Forgotten during the Season.

But when is it happening you ask?

>>> Season 2 will launch on December 16, at 2pm UTC. <<<

We hope this sums up all questions you have for the moment regarding Season 2.


See you in Season 2.

RE: Season 1 comes to an end – Season 2 is about to start soon!
Question:

1. You play in your alliance, gain VP points and switch alliances temporarily, then come back to your original alliance. What's the story with the VP points? All the VP points you gained in your original alliance are lost. All the VP points you gained in your temporary alliance are lost. When you return to your original alliance, your VP points are reset to 0. What happens when you kill a few more FB, say 90 bases. Do you get VP points for killing 90 Forgotten Bases or what do you get? When the server ends, do you get credit for ALL the VP points you gained in different alliances or not?

You can only collect VP while in an alliance and always dedicate the spend VP to your alliance. That means, when you leave the alliance, the VP you made until then will remain in the alliance. You cannot take VP from one alliance to another. Separately to the alliance rankings, there is the personal ranking that tracks all VP made during the whole season.

RE: Season 1 comes to an end – Season 2 is about to start soon!
first time to read you get a ban for steeling allie name, is this on every world?
but account eating or autosim or autofarm or autologin you wont get a ban.
or buy cheap funds , i have to pay full price no discount

why is it so important to use the same allie name? is it because all legacy points (VP points) will follow the name?

why not make a second vet server ? or more

3 seasons and the game will end?and after that a totall reset?

and normally we get a reset but not now ...... why is this ?
so the winners from season 1 easy wins all seasons this is my opinion of this vet server and will be won by dragon claws
or everyone needs to get to west after reset lol, just an idea but i wont be joining anymore on that server
have fun all

Probably not, we been busy with Season 2 so far and haven't touched the pre-signup which caused issues in the past. If we can fix it prior to the launch, we will let you know and enable it, but right now, its rather not likely. (There will be room for all of you) Wink
