Update Update to 1.154

Chief Warrant Officer
Adjusted the Greater Rune fragments received per time threshold for the Viking settlement to be 9, 4 and 2 respectively (they were 6, 2, and 1 before). Everyone who has already completed Viking settlement will receive 3 fragments of the Greater Runestone, per completed settlement.

As stated on beta https://forum.beta.forgeofempires.c...eedback-ongoing-changelog-w-c-3rd-june.10434/

Why 3 and not 6? 6+2+1=9 9+4+2=15 15-9=6 fragments per settlement

Everyone that did not finish settlements on time, will get free fragments. Everyone that finished them on time, will lose up to 3 fragments per settlement. Some people did 15-17 settlements to get 2 GRs at level 5. now, those who will do 15 will be getting 3, while those that finished the settlements have to do 19 for the same prize. thats 1 month more spent on doing the boring settlements and people are being penalised for neing more active and dedicated to the settlements. More info about the discussion in the link from the beta forum https://forum.beta.forgeofempires.c...eedback-ongoing-changelog-w-c-3rd-june.10434/

Inno should give rewards proportionally based on how many settlements people finished on time. If they want to give free fragments to the people that didnt do the settlements, thats fine, but why to take away and punish those that did.

I am looking back for being screwed

done 17 in time and have not 3 complete level 5 greater runestones

but people who now will do it will already have them after 15

fair play looks different

It’s free fragments. Players aren’t going to suddenly start actively doing settlements just because the fragment reward increased. The number of fragments someone else might get going forward does not affect your city. Maybe you would prefer it to be that no-one gets anything so there can be no disparity between rewards but I’m glad that players who have completed it get something.

the fragments I don't get but deserve affect my city

I deserve 6 not 3 fragments for every settlement I did because I did all in time

It’s free fragments.
for lazy people who don't deserve them they are free

I did it in time so they are not free but my payment according to the new payment structure for doing the settlements int time


so do you get free fragments which you don't have earned ?
 
so again my question


no free fragments for anybody
only deserved fragments for people who have earned them :rolleyes:
I got the number of fragments the game specified I would get for the speed of completion at that time. I am not entitled to anything in addition, as that was not the reward at the time it was completed. I agree with you that if additional fragments are retrospectively rewarded that players who got gold rewards would have earned more. However, is it practical for the devs to work this out? If it was easily implemented would they not have done this? I’m choosing to see a glass half full and be glad that those of us who persevered get at least some additional fragments.

Lastly, we have adjusted the build times for all of the Cultural Goods buildings so they are all take a maximum of 4 hours to build.
before the update all cultural goods buildings needed 1 hour to build :rolleyes:

Mead Hall, Old Willow and the rest which took longer than 4 hours are no cultural goods buildings

because the cultural goods buildings are only the buildings where you produce the goods in the settlement :P

This is the case in fact. This is what was chosen to to give rather than nothing as it was not practical do go back for each individual player
Is the Yggdrasil attack boost raised to max 30%, as stated in the daily changelog on Beta?
Yes it is

Don't think it is nice to say Japanese are shorter than Vikings, or that Vikings are horrible. Those are racist remarks.
*Ding!*
+1 sin counter. ;)

Also, can't wait to see the rage at the Virgo Project nerfing!lol.
Just a horribly thought out GB all around... anyone who's spent time power-leveling it is going to feel massively cheated, but everyone who's spent year/s building up massive city defenses *IS* currently being cheated by this thing. :P

Glad I was never interested in chasing it, since now it's mostly just a waste of time & fp's.
