As many of you have noticed, there has been nothing posted for the 4th quarter of the WoE Points System. This is intentional. For the foreseeable future, we will not be continuing the WPS system. Not to fret, the idea is not completely out the window. For now, we want to have renewal be a clean slate for WoE, and we want to see how WoE in Renewal works for everyone without the WoE Points System.

Guilds and alliances will continue to earn points until Renewal hits their server. Once this happens, we will convert all points from Q3 and the few WoEs of Q4 into tokens. Guild leaders can either use these tokens to redeem at the WPS NPC, or they can cash out for one of the god item related prizes. We plan on running events that where these points are still prizes, they are just going to be harder to get.

As for a new WPS (or similar) system, we are always open to new ideas. Let us know what you thought of the old system and what you would like to see from the new system (if anything). Our goal is to create a WoE experience that everyone enjoys as much as possible.

Well, assuming our alliance in the future actually gets acknowledged and confirmed, a larger scale of points would be nice... As it stands, it's basically either you get showered in points or you get one point.

Instead of just holding the castle all WoE, maybe reward based on how many times the castle breaks.

For instance, you start out with 5 points for each castle. Each time the castle breaks, it loses a point. At the end of the first hour of WoE, those points are locked in and another 5 are added and the same thing happens. With this system, you don't lose everything if your castle breaks one time towards the end of WoE. It would mean two points lost for every break (if the guild retakes the castle), with a minimum of 1 point to whichever guild owns the castle at the end of WoE.

Top breakers each WoE could also be rewarded with a certain amount of points; 5 for 1st, 3 for 2nd and 1 for 3rd.

How about this as a suggestion?

Rank the current 20 forts into 5 categories.

CASTLE          CASTLE
RANK   POINTS / #      BALDER  BRITON  LUINA   VALKY  /   SLEIP   MEGIN   BRISI   MJOLN
S      5(10)  / 1      C       A       A       C      /   Dx5     Cx5     Ax4     Sx5
A      4(9)   / 2      D       D       B       S      /   Sx4     Sx4     Dx4     Ax5
B      3(8)   / 3      A       S       A       B      /   Bx3     Sx4     Bx3     Cx5
C      2(7)   / 4      S       C       D       C      /   Cx3     Ax3     Bx3     Ax4
D      1(6)   / 5      B       S       D       B      /   Dx3     Dx3     Cx3     Bx2

WPS Alliance is no longer needed to be submitted.  Each guild will be tallied individually.
- Sub guilds are allowed as it becomes increasingly difficult to ninja forts with the new Emperium.
- To discourage sub guilds being used, minimum 7 points required to receive WPS tokens.
- To discourage multiple sub guilds being used, a 50% token charge will be assessed when transfer amount is less than 10.

Multiple forts owned by 1 guild do not earn additional points.
- Only fort with the highest points will count for each guild.

Holding forts for an entire 2 hours awards the holding guild an additional 5 points.
- Only the castle holder will receive points.  Allies will not receive points.
- GMs will not divide the points or tokens to allies.  Guilds should deal w/this within themselves.
- Therefore, holding a fort will result in 6, 7, 8, 9, 10 points.

Points will be converted into WPS tokens in the following ratio when quarter ends:

POINT(S)  TOKEN(S)
00 - 06   0
07 - 12   1        [7 / 13 = Obtain a fort more than half of the time]
13 - 25   2        [1 x 13 = Obtain at least a fort each time]
26 - 38   4        [2 x 13 = Obtain at least a 2 points fort each time]
39 - 51   8        [3 x 13 = Obtain at least a 3 points fort each time]
52 - 64   16       [4 x 13 = Obtain at least a 4 points fort each time]              
65 - 97   32       [5 x 13 = Obtain at least a 5 points fort each time]
98 - 130  64       [7.5 x 13 = Held a 2 or 3 points fort all times]

Feel free to give inputs, or suggest one yourself.

I think some of the loots in the castle will be out of date after renewal... should be updated.

All the elemental armors placed in there are non-slotted.
The GMs can determine the new drop rates.
Feel free to give your inputs.

I'd like to see WPS return. WoE gets boring after a while without another objective. HELL YES to the updated fort loots. The current loots aside from god item parts and VERY few items are garbage. If the current loots are kept may as well put in an NPC in treasure rooms so we can dump that trash easier.
