Wintergrasp Balance System, Low level BG score update and more.

Hello community,


We would like to announce some PvP related changes.


As we said in previous posts, the score system from the PvP Tournament will allow us to encourage different aspects. We would like to give a bit more of relevance the low-level BGs than they currently have, so, for now, we are going to increase the score granted per win from any low-level bracket battleground to 3 points (this is already active).


Apart from that, we have been working on a Wintergrasp balance system, it is a blizzlike feature designed to provide some extra help to the faction that loses several battles in a row. It will be live on Friday 20th of March.


Taken from here:



 

  • There is an internal tug-of-war scale not visible by players which will shift under specific conditions.
  • The scale starts at 0 (neutral) and can move up to 700 points in either direction favoring the Alliance at one end, and Horde at the other.
  • This scale is persistent and does not reset to 0 whenever control of Wintergrasp shifts.
  • If an attacking force captures Wintergrasp Fortress while under the effects of any of the advantages listed below (400-700 points in their favor), the scale tips 100 points in favor of the opposing faction.
  • If a defending force successfully defends Wintergrasp Fortress two battles in a row, the scale tips 100 points in favor of the opposing faction.

Each consecutive successful defense after a faction’s first two consecutive defenses will further tip the scale 100 points in favor of the opposing faction.

 

-As a quick example, if the scale is at 0 and the Alliance capture Wintergrasp fortress while attacking, the scale will not move. If the Alliance defend Wintergrasp twice in a row after this, the scale will move 100 points in favor of the Horde. Each consecutive defense by the Alliance after this will move the scale 100 points further in favor of the Horde each time, bringing the Horde to 400 points in their favor after one unsuccessful defense and five unsuccessful attacks, a total of six Horde losses in a row.


-As another example, if the scale is at 400 in favor of the Horde and they capture Wintergrasp fortress while attacking, the scale will move 100 points in favor of the Alliance. If the Horde defend Wintergrasp twice in a row after this, the scale will move 100 points in favor of the Alliance. Each consecutive defense by the Horde after this will move the scale 100 points further in favor of the Alliance each time, bringing the Alliance to 100 points in their favor after one unsuccessful defense and five unsuccessful attacks, a total of six Alliance losses in a row.


 

-The following advantages are provided at the beginning of the battle for Wintergrasp whenever these corresponding ranges on the scale have been reached:


 

  • 0-300: No advantages granted.
  • 400: Faction starts with the Sunken Ring Factory under their control.
  • 500: Faction starts with the Sunken Ring and Broken Temple Factories under their control.
  • 600: Faction starts with the Sunken Ring and Broken Temple Factories under their control and gains access to Catapults after earning 1 kill in battle.
  • 700: Faction starts with the Sunken Ring and Broken Temple Factories under their control and gains access to Catapults, Siege Engines, and Demolishers after earning 1 kill in battle.



 

We are also working on some extra loot for the Faction leaders, this way there will be more rewards for the tournament participants and City Raiding will be more attractive. We will post more details shortly.


We are planning to have a more fluent weekly faction reward rotation, as well as freshen the individual rewards for participation that are currently being given with each reset.


Remember that, if you have any suggestion, you can let us know by ticket or e-mail, we will gladly hear you out.


Thank you very much.

Algalon’s 6th Anniversary.


Almost 7 years ago, when Dalaran-WoW came to live, we had an idea about how a WoTLK realm should be. We started to slowly give form to that idea and designing the appropriate features – today it has been 6 years since that idea took its final form. The Blue Knight arose and our realm Algalon was released.

Thank you everyone for your support, constant feedback, help and loyalty. We treasure our community because without you this dream would not be possible.

6 years of progression, that’s a lot! Back in the day, we wanted to create a new and unique realm where older tiers could be relevant even after everyone rushed all their way up to the Icecrown Citadel. We had in mind a realm where you could experience the pre-nerfs mechanics in certain bosses and a bit extra difficult encounters, while still enjoyable and fun. We loved the struggle and we savored the guild commitment in the past so, we designed our Algalon realm in order to offer to the rest of the WoTLK lovers this progressive experience.

We wanted to offer stability and long term gameplay, reward the player efforts, take care of your beloved characters and their achievements. We are still working untiringly so the player’s hard work prevails through the years and so that everyone can proudly show the history of their characters.

It has been a marvellous journey; although not always easy or smooth we’ve enjoyed passionately every step of the road. We are a small team, but committed and devoted to the project, thanks to your feedback and suggestions we are constantly trying to improve things.

We were dreamers of improbable dreams, and we made Dalaran, we keep dreaming and evolving our Blue Knight – Algalon, into the best shape that we can offer, and with much more to come.

We feel tied to the community, we smile and laugh with your jokes, we suffer from your disappointments and failures, we try to be there so you don’t have to worry. And we will be there for you.

How will we celebrate this special occasion?

With a x2 experience starting next Saturday 22th of February and ending the 17th of March! For a more detailed explanation, please check Spadita’s post.

Exactly as it was the last time, those who still want to level their characters with x1, feel free to contact our Game Masters via ticket and they will disable the x2 for you.

Thank you for these wonderful 6 years, and counting on the next 6 to be even better! We will try to keep offering our passion, best efforts, the stability and unique ideas we’ve been envisioning since 7 years ago as a token of gratitude for your support.

Following our Algalon realm’s 6th Anniversary announcement, I have been thinking a lot and doing some maths and I discovered something really interesting:

– 6 years = 6 + 5 (letters of the word years) = 11
– The 11th letter of the alphabet is K and this is the symbol of Potassium.
– The banana is a nice source of Potassium.
– Banana has 6 letters, one letter per year of Algalon’s lifetime.
– Wikipedia says that bananas emit radioactivity and that Cerenkov radiation is in the ultraviolet spectrum, but part of the energy is visible light and is seen as a blue glow.
– Algalon is blue and glows, therefore Algalon eats Bananas as a blue source of his powers.
– We will offer you a Banana Charm for just 1 VP/DP in our shops during the Anniversary celebrations.
– 6 days from today is Saturday 22. Saturday = 8 letters + 22 = 30.
– 30 minus 6 days from today up to Saturday 22 = 24.

So it is crystal clear that according to Maths, you will enjoy the x2 experience event from Saturday 22nd of February for 24 days (ending the 17th of March), and during that time you can redeem the minion Banana Charm in our shops for just 1 VP/DP.

Enjoy it!

Love Is In the Air.


How Charming!

I just got my Heart-Shaped Box! Let’s see if the Lovely Luck is on our side, because after Tough Love and Flirt with the Disaster, I Pitied the Fool that wears the Vile Fumigator’s Mask. I would share the Lovely Charm Bracelet, so they would feel a bit less Lonely, everyone needs a powerful Love Token by their side because a Dangerous Love or a Sweet Tooth can get you Perma-Peddled.

We could make a Nation of Adoration together spreading just a Fistful of Love within our comrades, what a Lovely Charm is if you get Shafted! or under the influence of the Rocket’s Pink Glare in the meanwhile!

But remember, My love is like a Red, Red Rose or a Big Love Rocket, we just need to tell each other: Be Mine.

Signed:

The Love Fool

Lunar Festival is here!


Hello Community!

It is time to honor and pay your respects to the Ancestor’s Spirits across Azeroth, visit the ghostly Elders around and be rewarded with the Coin of Ancestry. And while respect, tradition, and honor are the guide to your pilgrimage to become an Elder yourself, remember to celebrate it with the druids of Moonglade with the huge range of Fireworks available during this week. Also, if you feel fit for the task and want to be blessed by Elune you can defeat Omen, the corrupted demi-god.

The Lunar Festival will be active until the 7th of February

Enjoy!

PvP Tournament: Capital Cities Raiding.

Hello Citizens of Dalaran,


We are proudly introducing a new feature in the PvP Tournament: City Raiding!


We have been working on this idea in order to have some fresh air and to fill those PvP souls with the thrill that is to raid the opposite faction capitals. Each of the leader’s death will count towards the Tournament, allowing to participate to any kind of player, as well as help to balance the scores and of course, encouraging the World PvP.


You can now check the weekly leader kills for each faction through our PvP section.


For now, each City Leader’s death will grant 2 points. We are currently thinking about some possible rewards to be added in the near future, more information will be published shortly.


Aside from that, we have reworked every Faction Leader mechanics, making their encounters a bit more enjoyable. They will also present a small extra challenge thanks to a small HP buff.


Thank you very much for your support and suggestions, they are very helpful. We will improve as much as we can and will continue trying to balance things and keep a fair environment.


Stay tuned, we will post information about a new Wintergrasp Balance System we’ve been working on, as well as the Arena Season reset that is about to happen.


PvP Tournament: Updates and Multiboxing restriction.

Hello Citizens of Dalaran,

We would like to keep you informed about few updates that are about to be introduced into the PvP Tournament tomorrow, Friday 9th of January.

Wintergrasp score points will be reduced to 5 points per win. We started with 10 points in order to increase its relevance and now that is settled, we will reduce it to 5. This will also help to balance things a bit. We will also announce some interesting updates to Wintergasp shortly.

Another important matter is the introduction of the Initial Advantage Score. This is a score that a faction will have by default upon starting a new week if they have lost a few times in a row. This will encourage such faction to keep pushing towards victory.

Initial Advantage Score:

  • 2 weeks lost in a row: 15 points.

  • 3 weeks lost in a row: 25 points.

  • 4 or more weeks lost in a row: 40 points.

Alongside these changes, we would like to announce that the Multiboxing in PvP will not be allowed from now on and this new rule takes immediate effect. We will be open to discussion about this matter if the overall community thinks otherwise in the future but, for now, it won’t continue being allowed.

We have been working on several systems to introduce the City Raiding but we have also improved the faction bosses by adjusting their HP and mechanics, in order to have some epic battles. This new feature will be introduced to the PvP Tournament the Friday 17th of January.

We will post more information about how it is going to work during the next week.

Thank you very much.
