[Open Beta] Progression Reset

Icon_comments-273f39d59b14455444286f80f26e561a 70

 

Hello Opulencians,


We are announcing today that in order to introduce our new Open Creation defense mode (among other reasons detailed here) for Open Beta, we are going to conduct a progression reset on all player accounts on the Live Version of the game on February 11th.


Please continue reading to get a better understanding of why this is happening.

 

 

THE RESET: WHY?

 


The new Open Creation defense mode we have developed for Open Beta is going to change our game, a lot. In order to improve the game and implement this new mode, we had to re-do a lot of the in-game systems. For instance, we created a Trap Generator, changed the footprints on nearly all traps and creatures and we reworked the Mines entirely. We have detailed these changes in the dedicated Open Creation news if you are interested in reading more.


All of these changes are important enough that this new mode renders old castles incompatible with it. Keeping the current castles in the new Open Creation defense mode would make the kingdom of Opulencia a vast semi-apocalyptic field of broken castles and game-breaking bugs. Not too enticing, right? That is why we have decided to conduct a progression reset.


In addition, Crowns and Leaderboards will be reset on February 11th to prepare for Open Beta and to create a level playing field for all players for future competitions.

 

 

THE RESET: WHEN?

 


The reset will happen on February 11th, with the release of the pre-Open Beta pack.

 

This Pack will contain the majority of the new features we planned for the Open Beta’s launch on February 25th. We are releasing these new features early to our Closed Beta players, to allow us to fine tune them and to get your feedback on what we'll be rolling out.

 

 

THE RESET: HOW?

 


Here below is the detailed process of what’s going to happen.

 

 

          - FOR ALL PLAYERS

 


Heroes will be brought back to Level 1. The Knight, Archer and Mage will be unlocked for everyone, but you will need to go through the new Tutorial with one of them before you can access the two other heroes.

 

Your Attack inventory will remain the same. Your equipped loot will be brought back to your inventory (or the Buy Back section of the appropriate machinery if your inventory is full).


Your Castle will be emptied and brought back to Level 1. Your Castle inventory (the one containing creatures and traps) will be emptied as well. You will re-create your castle during the in-game tutorial.


Your Gold and Life Force amounts will be brought back to 0.


All of the Blings you have won in-game will not be brought back. However, Blings that were purchased will be restored (please see below for how changes will affect players who have purchased Blings or Packs).


As mentioned above, your Crowns are brought back to 0.


Your Friend List and Account Information, Username, etc., stay unchanged.

  

 

          - FOR DOUBLE O/BLINGS/IN-GAME CONTENT PURCHASING PLAYERS

 


All of the above, plus:


All your purchased Blings (spent and unspent) will be brought back to their original value. For example: If you purchased a 500 Blings pack, and spent 140 of them, the original number of 500 Blings will be returned to you.


All your Double O Pack or Club related content will be returned to your inventory (including creatures, weapons and themes).

 

All purchased Castle Themes (except the ones included in Double O Packs or given through the Double O Club) will not be restored, you will need to purchase them again with the reimbursed Blings.

 

 

          - FOR PLAYERS WHO PARTICIPATED IN COMMUNITY EVENTS

 

 

If you have won a Beta Key or a Double O Pack during a Community Event (Open House, Festival of Taking, Key Giveaways, etc.), you will get your access to the game and the content of the related Pack back.


If you have been gifted Blings or Boosts during a Community Event, they will not be restored.

 

 

BOOSTS AND LEVEL UP

 

 

You will all be granted 15 Boosts (5 XP, 5 Gold and 5 Life Force boosts), so that you can level-up to where you were before the reset as quickly as possible.

Please note that thanks to your feedback, we have worked to ease Hero progression, removing the Hero Trainer entirely to make leveling up smoother. But we will cover that in an upcoming update!

 

 

WILL THERE BE ANOTHER RESET?

 


We have no plans to do another reset at this time, but while we are still in Beta, implementing new features may force us to reset progression again. We will obviously do everything we can to avoid that.


We will reset Crowns and Leaderboards regularly to kick off new competition rounds between players. We will provide you more information about that in a future update.

 

We realize that this is something we never announced, and we have tried our best to avoid this situation. It is only very recently that we have been pushed to decide to conduct this reset. But for all the reasons stated above (and in the dedicated Open Creation news), we hope you understand that this reset is for the betterment of the game.
 

 

What’s next?

 


We will hold two live Twitch events thisThursday on our Official Twitch Channel from 19.30 to 20.30 GMT in French and  20.30 to 21.30 GMT (3.30pm to 4.30pm EST) in English .

 

The French Twitch stream will feature Arnaud Jamin, Game Director, and the English Twitch stream will feature Sean Crooks, Associate Producer, and Hervé Sliwa, Creative Director.

 

Please go to our forums to submit all the questions you would like us to answer during the Twitch streams, both concerning the Reset and the Open Creation Mode:

Thanks, and see you on Twitch very soon!

And you think all players who have all castle upgrades and characters at level 30 will play form the start ? Buahahahahahahaha ! At max level there was nothing to do, since I have biuld max level castle I haven't played the game and to max castle I have only "played" it once few days for 4 mins so why play this game again ? Well good luck with open beta players 'cos you will loose all colse beta ones.

All of you people crying about a closed beta having a reset need to learn to wait for the proper game to be reset. You're acting like complete babies. Its a closed beta, there are going to be resets. And if you spent way too much time getting way too much with knowledge that it may be reset, and you don't plan to do it again, that's your fault. Not theirs. I spent a long time on it, and the second playthrough's going to be different anyway, so i'm not complaining. Besides, its not like you lose anything you paid for.

thanks for the reset, I finally have a reason to delete this game. All those time spent of farming currency wasted and what's the compensation? boosts so that we'll grind even more. Well done

I am ranked number 1 in my country (Ireland) in the following:

Crowns
Achievement score
Creatures defeated
Honor points

I have 3 level 30 characters each with well over 1000 dps. My castle, all buildings and monsters are fully upgraded. I was led to believe that all my progress would be permanent. You are dishonest.

The least you can do is give me a full refund. I am certainly not going to put in all that effort again. You cannot be trusted.

I definitely feel taken advantage of by initially being told "hey, we don't plan on resetting the game before open beta", putting in countless hours of play time, and then having it all ripped away. I guess that's one way to get people to test your game...

A legit question though so I can gauge how much we're going to lose: You say we'll keep our items or they'll be put into the "buy back" section of the store. Are they going to permanently be in the buy back section and are they going to be free buy back?
Personally I have a full inventory plus equipped items. When starting the game over with lvl 1 everything, it is going to take quite some time to get enough cash to buy back all of my items. Also, after logging out, all things in the buy back section of the game are deleted, so we'll have to get all of our items in one play through. Also, most of our inventory will be packed with our high level gear for weeks until we're able to level up and equip them. That's an annoying 40+ h

Very greedy company, all the time forcing to buy something, make it pay to play then dont fool people, you should say it before about reset like other developers doing always, im beta/alpha tester in many games.
Game is very repetetive and growing hate to each other, you will not get friends there, only enemies, because friends not steal your stuff! Very bugged also hard to start launcher even and after closing game you need to exit processes from task manager (facelapm to devs, im long time here and that [filtered] not fixed yet) , was fine to try but that news ended my interest!

im not saying stop qqing or being rude to people who are qqing but seriously what are you gonna expect from a beta? you need to realize in aplha and betas it happens and sometimes they LITERALLY CANNOT UPDATE WITHOUT A RESET also if you actually read the arcticle things you paid for are giving back so your only loosing player and castle+ crowns, remember how you got to level 30 and nothing more was needing playing exactly the idea. the devs ARE listening so be glad its not like battlefailed a gma ei loved then bf4 was a huge failure. so please keep in mind its a beta, your getting your [filtered] back, and its a better team then 99.9% of the companies who dotn give a damn about their fans
