[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!

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

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.

Well, resets happen... And they are almost always for good reasons and to help improve the game.
I'm glad that the game is taking such a leap forward in gameplay, but I'm a bit sad that I wasn't informed of this earlier because of how eager I was to play more and more and to eventually burn myself out.

That's really a troublesome side-effect of early access games, but I'm sure that if this new system is as good as it sounds I will have more than enough new things to do!

Thanks for the update, I hope everything goes smoothly in the transition!

Just remembered that you also replied to a post from me during the free mage week:

The progress will be saved, so that you can pick him up again at anytime in the future if you purchase his Double O Pack or when we will be in Open Beta :-)

Guess this was another lie. Kinda hard to trust this team now

Well...Theres no reason for me to play anymore. I have spent so much time upgrading my gold and life force mines and everything else just for it to get reset, why did i even buy into the beta?

Most of you act like you've never been apart of a closed beta, Reset is always going to happen. Stop crying.
