Starting with this weekend’s contest, we are changing the way points are earned with certain tasks. From the start, contests were intended to challenge players to perform those tasks during the weekend and earn points. Due to the way our point system worked, many of these contests rewarded the person who hoarded the most mail messages or missions. We want to award players for participation during the contest.
You’ll notice a difference in the points system, as it’s based on how much players typically earn per day. We will monitor the progress during this weekend’s contest and make any necessary adjustments for the future.
These changes apply to all contests going forward:
- Items and resources collected from the mailbox will no longer count towards Contest gain resources tasks if the message was sent before the contest began.
- Items and resources spent to start Missions will no longer count towards Contest tasks if the mission was started before the contest began. The mission must be both started and collected during the contest to earn points.
- Gold spent on Guild Skill Help requests will no longer count towards Contest tasks if the help request was sent before the contest began. The help request must be both sent and completed during the contest to earn points.
