Greetings Lords and Ladies,
Our first Leaderboard events went live in March and we’ve had some questions about them. The differences between Leaderboards and Progressive Events meaningfully impact gameplay, and we'd like to make sure you have all the details.
Leaderboard Score v. Progressive Event Score:
- The Leaderboards feature tracks your rank or position for active event leaderboards as changes occur.
- Progressive Events record your relevant scores as you complete event requirements starting when your game initially connects to our servers.
This difference means that Leaderboards and Progressive event scores are not always the same. If you participated in an Event, your Leaderboard score will be greater than or equal to your Progressive event score. This means that once you've finished a Progressive event, you can still earn points on the Leaderboard. However, this ALSO means that if your relevant scores increased before you were given the requirements through the Event, your "progress" will NOT be counted!
For example: In a PVP event if you are attacked by another player immediately on the Event start, you will have a leaderboard score for your losses but you may not have received a score as part of the Progressive Event.
Known Issues, Bug Fixes and Workarounds:
Known Issue: Event Progress
There is a display bug that if you have no progress in a Progressive Event, then your Leaderboard score will not show either. It’s similar to the above example, the LEaderboard will have correctly recorded your score but will not display it.
Example: In a PVP event if you are attacked by another player immediately on the Event start, you may not see a leaderboard score for your losses and you may not have received a score as part of the Progressive Event.
Workaround: There is no workaround for this but it will be fixed in our next game update.
Known Issue: Progressive Events
There is a delay before we update Progressive Events that have become active AND this update will not occur if you close the Events panel.
Example: You have the Events panel open and are waiting for a Troop Training event to begin. You close the Event panel with less than 5 seconds to go before the event starts and immediately go to a Training Building. You then commence instant troop training with gold. In this case you will have received a leaderboard score for all of that training but you will NOT have received an event score.
Workaround: In order to ensure that you are participating in the event, wait for the event to begin, restart the game completely, and then open the Events panel.
Known Issue: Daily Quests
Daily Quests have a similar known issue. If you gather before the reset time, your gathering will not count towards your Daily Quest.
Example: You can send a March before the timer resets, but you must log in after the timer resets and before your March completes for that gathering to count towards your Daily Quest.
Workaround: In order to ensure that you are participating in the Daily Quest, wait for the timer to reset, restart the game completely, and then open the Daily Quests panel again.
