[Open Beta] Progression Reset

Icon_comments-934991276f8397b8331ce92dd181b1b7 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 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 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.





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.





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.






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.






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!





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!

Also, the idea that we'll have to beat our own castles to even use them is lame. I'm not going to design a castle that's not good enough to stop me. The whole point of this is for me to make a castle that I feel NO ONE can get past. If I can get past it, then loads of people will have absolutely no trouble. Which would be fine, if we weren't about to have even MORE gold on the line than ever before. So now we've got to design defenses that are NOT as good as they were before, but give up more loot when someone beats them. I'm sure you'll think of things to sell the hardcores, but you won't get any new business after this.

And i would like to make one more comment. You indeed told us that we would only lose our crowns and that was fine with me. But a progression reset, COME ON. Atleast you could have said that you were not sure about a reset instead of saying that ONLY the crowns were going to reset. That would have stopped me from playing the game and to wait till open beta. Once again, you lost me.

I intensively played this game cause i read there were no plans to do a reset. I have a lvl 27, two lvl 21's and my castle is finally complete as of today. You just lost me as a player. This reset sucks balls.

Ok so all this crying made me log in just to post a comment, I have played many closed beta games before and resets are a usual thing.

The huge plus is we are getting a huge amount of content, the devs are obviously listening to the player base and to be honest I love that fact, so many games just turn into cash grabs and no content other than new skins ect, these guys obviously love their game and want it to grow and improve. I fail to see the problem.

The issue of 15 boosts which so many people are annoyed with is funny as they don't need to give us anything, sure more boosts or an exclusive skin would be nice but come on they are giving us content which is worth so much more in my opinion.

I would also like to know the answer to the question of whether we will get our weapons and boosts back that we got with our packs as this would not be so cool if we did not.

Anyway looking forward to the new content and a HUGE thanks to the devs for listening to the players.

To those of you complaining, let me tell you a thing. You are in the BETA of the game. The game isn't finished and therefore things like this happen. At least you're not playing Starbound which was doing resets every 2 weeks or so at the start of their beta.

Also, most games, at the end of their beta, regardless of what game, you get reset anyway to give everyone, new and old an equal playing field.

So what's the point in complaining about something that's being done to make the game better? I for one would much prefer to not have a game full of bugs and exploits which is what we are experiencing now.

This is fine with me because it seems necessary. I firmly believe these guys have no hidden intentions with it all, especially since they are going to restore the blings we paid for.

WHAT A JOKE. We were promised that ONLY the crowns would be reset and NEVER our progress. I have high level characters and a MAXED out castle.

Please tell me where I can go to get my FULL refund because you literally LIED.

To those that will no doubt flame me to stop QQ'ing, you should know that the ONLY reason I bought the High Roller pack was to get a head start on this game, a head start that is now being wiped.

I was lied to and I want a refund. That is all. Thank you Ubi.

for those of you with your "stop crying" comments, you could at least try to understand why people might be upset about losing their progress, instead of immediately becoming bullies towards your fellow players.

and, i'm not sure if anyone else pointed this out, but they TOLD US that only the crowns would be reset and not our progress, which is why I'd wake up early for work every morning just to loot my mines so I could get everything I could upgrade upgraded as high as I could get them.

So, as fun as it is for you people to say I shouldn't "qq" or that I should know how betas work, even though I read their promise that they would NOT do this again, maybe you could at LEAST take a moment of your time, which you appear to have quite a bit of, to accept that some of us aren't so thrilled to start over. It's highly unlikely that I'll play the game again after the reset. It was very fun, and I got my money's worth out of it. But I won't buy anything else they put out after thi

Completely understand your circumstances, even though I do appreciate the bonus boosts I must ask that there be a slight more reimbursment perhaps a Pre Alpha skin? Selfish as this sounds it would help with the river of complaining that will have to be delt with, free stuff usually fixes that problem ;)
