The Maester Phase and Superlatives

The Maester Phase and Superlatives

With the autumn around the corner, the Maester AvA Phase is almost upon us! The Maester Phase will begin on Tuesday, September 13th at 11:00am EDT (15:00 UTC) and run until Tuesday, September 20th at 11:00am EDT (15:00 UTC). In the previous Bastard Phase we saw the whole of Westeros controlled by those swearing fealty to House Greyjoy. This phase will feature new Superlatives that we hope will create new avenues of competition for alliances.

Maester Phase AvA Superlatives!

We are happy to announce the latest round of Superlative Challenges for the upcoming AvA Maester Phase! 

This Phase’s challenges are as follows:

Domination: “Highest Total VP earned by an Alliance across all regions”

There Must Always Be A Stark In Winterfell: "Alliance with the most successful defenses by Sworn Swords in the North."

Bleed them Slowly: "Alliance with the highest total camp damage inflicted using Harass attacks in the Iron Islands."

The Power of Gold: “Alliance with the most VP gained from camps (as opposed to actions) in the Westerlands.”

Explosion: “Alliance with the most total camp damage per participant in the Crownlands, minimum 5 participants.”

We’ll Give It Back Later: “Alliance that steals (using the steal action) the most silver per participant in the Stormlands, minimum 5 participants.”

Backstabbing: "Alliance with the most successful sabotage attacks per participant in Dorne, minimum 5 participants."

A Fruitful Phase: "Alliance with the most successful helpful actions (barter and aid) per participant in The Reach, minimum 5 participants."

Rebuilding the Riverlands: "Alliance with the most silver per participant gained from actions of any type in the Riverlands, minimum 5 participants."

Above the Fray: “Most VP earned by an Alliance with no offensive (fight, harass, sabotage, steal, swindle or bribe) actions in the Vale.”

Like the Superlatives in previous Phases, these challenges are not all mutually exclusive. An Alliance can be awarded multiple Superlatives with two exceptions: 

  1.  The Alliance that wins the Domination superlative is no longer eligible for the other superlatives. 
  2. The first-place Alliance in a region is not eligible for that region’s superlative, though they can win superlatives in other regions as well as the Domination superlative.

Victorious Alliances will bring glory to their fellow members, for the winner of each Superlative will be celebrated in a Blog Post following the conclusion of the Phase. As in pervious phases, there will not be any in-game display of these challenges or related in-game prizes.

As always, the Game of Thrones Ascent team wishes to thank you for your continued support! We hope you are as excited as we are to see who will rise to the opportunity and prove themselves in these new challenges!
