Can you clarify on using the guild vault to bid? Does that mean we can use gold to bid instead of guild points?

How to Play?
The 8 Guilds who have successfully accepted bids(Gold Donation from Guild Vault) for the tournament spots will battle it out in a single elimination match on Saturdays! Following which, the 8 guilds will again fight for their rights to a Castle on Sunday. The winners of the Sunday match will gain rights to own(and enter) the Castle until the next Sunday Emporia.


Saturday winner gets one star castle and Sunday gets two star? Or is Saturday just for practice or something?

Correct, the system has changed a bit since it was last implemented. Bids are now gold from the guild vault instead of guild points.

Oh, that's nice. Now if you could adress my missing weapon and return it to me, kthx. -.-

Thats the GM team, can't really help ya there. But best of luck.

Saturday winner gets one star castle and Sunday gets two star? Or is Saturday just for practice or something?


Yea its a typo, i've clarified the language a bit in the original post:

The 8 Guilds who have successfully accepted bids(Gold Donation from Guild Vault) for the tournament spots will battle it out in a single elimination match on Saturdays! Following which, the winning guild will again fight for their rights to a Castle(1 Star) on Sunday against the current Castle Holder. Winners of the 1 Star match will continue on and challenge the 2 Star Castle holder for the top spot. Winners of the 1 Star and 2 Star Castles will gain rights to own(and enter) the Castle until the next Sunday Emporia.


Also since this is the first week(4/8) players who win the match on Saturday will automatically be placed in a 1 Star Castle (since no other guild currently holds that spot). 2 Star will remain empty, and there will be no Sunday matches. The following week(4/15) matches on Saturday will proceed normally and Sunday the winner will challenge the 1 Star Castle holder from the previous week. If the defender of the 1 Star castle wins the match he will be moved to the 2Star Castle and the Challenger remains castle-less.

So to clarify, in order to move from 1 Star Castle to 2 Star Castle you must win, hold the castle for one week, and then defend the 1 Star Castle from the challenger in order to move to the 2 Star Castle.

So to clarify, in order to move from 1 Star Castle to 2 Star Castle you must win, hold the castle for one week, and then defend the 1 Star Castle from the challenger in order to move to the 2 Star Castle.


So it should go something like this then?:

  • Fight 1(4/9): One-star castle is claimed
  • Fight 2(4/17): Winner and 1 star castle holder fight, potential 2 star castle claim.
  • Fight 3: Once 2 star castle is claimed, next winner gets the 1 star castle
  • Fight 4: Once 1 and 2 star castles are claimed, next winner fights 1 star castle holder
  • Fight 5: if 1 star castle is held, 1 star and 2 star castle holders fight
  • Fight 6: if 2 star castle is over-taken, 1 star castle is left vacant and fights 3-6 are repeated. If castle is held, no placement changes.

Please correct me if any of this is mistaken.

Yes that's how this is supposed to work. We're really excited and will have folks watching the matches on the back end to ensure things go off.

Thanks, this is much clearer. Are the Sunday matches going to be the same dragon defense that we had before?

Does our emporia work differently from other versions? I remember that the winner of the 1 star match, regardless if it was the defender or the attacker, would get 2 star. Is this the case over here?

That sounds all wrong according to the other versions, and why would our version be anything different?
