Sparse Realm Penalty Adjustments
« Topic Start: September 10, 2020, 06:28:54 PM »
Due to both player feedback and our own observations over the past day, we are making some adjustments to the newly-added sparse realm penalties. They were never intended to hit so hard, so fast, and we apologize for the excessively aggressive effects.

  • The penalties will now have a 3-day warning period before applying to a given region.
  • The penalties will ease in much more slowly on stable islands, slightly more slowly on testing (which already had them slower than stable).
  • The across-the-board penalties for regions lacking a lord, a knight, or both have been removed, at least for the time being.
  • Later today, a tool will be added on the Information page allowing everyone to see both which realms are in most danger, and how many regions the realm currently stands to lose.
