KvK Recap k100

Over the weekend, Mz matched us up with our equal in terms of kingdom age. It proved to be a bloody encounter. I lost more tier 4 troops this weekend than all kvk events of the last combined.

A couple hundred thousand were the result of errors made from sleep deprivation and carelessness but most were from rallying 200m reinforced outlanders.

At first, we had a problem getting our rallies to actually hit them without shielding first. Later, it was taking heavy losses when they actually did.

We did have some tremendous luck with one outlander who apparently rallied his hero before our rally hit him for some reason.

In the end, we lost the kvk. K100 is another dead kingdom, something we see far too often these days. The top alliances of the kingdom destroy their own kingdom so there are basically zero points available to outlanders. This is one strategy that can be used, but thankfully k94 has not resorted to it yet. Some k94 alliances have tried to destroy all opposing in this fashion, but so far we have quelled them.

Our alliance is working on new strategies for the next kvk. They include less offensive measures and more defensive tactics, but enticing the opposition to attack seems to be the key to victory.

Server crash

So the KvK just started and I ported 2 accounts over and experienced super lag. One of my marches bugged and showed that it was still out. So I restarted quickly and this is what I see now.

So now two accounts are sitting unshielded in outlanders kingdom. Not a good start….

Now the screen says they are doing an emergency maintenance. No kidding.

Finally, Apple software update just popped up and apparently there is already an update to iOS 8.0.

I think I should have went to bed.

Game of War Restorative Research

The Resto tree is now live, at least partially. A few of the research items are still unavailable such as trap salvaging and luck. It curious why these items are not available. Does this mean the tree was rushed? I’ve never seen this type of release before. Perhaps they plan to raise the max stronghold level to 25 or only then will you be able to salvage traps…

Several highly beneficial researches can be completed currently in the tree such as march speed 30%, resource production boost 10%, training cost reduction, training capacity and training speed.

Tier 4 cost reduction requires Trap Building Speed 10 before it can start being researched:

I’ve been diligently researching the Resto tree. I’m presently on troop training speed 9. Here are the requirements:

I am excited to begin research on this new tree. Also, I’m curious if MZ will ever introduce medic troops to game to help sustain troops in battle.
