Hello Bannermen! We’re excited to finally be able to share with you what we’ve been working on behind the scenes for the next evolution of the game.
There have been a lot of questions about the new Tactics system. Tactics can be broken down into two types:
Are unlocked through contributions of all members using a new currency called prestige. These tactics will affect every member of an Alliance. Alliance leaders (or designated others) control which are active or not. Tactics provide a positive benefit for all members. But, they will differ in what they can do, chose wisely.
Tactics can help Alliance members a few ways:
- Helps make Alliances have a different feel. Going from one Alliance to another can now have a whole different tempo. Alliances will adapt to member styles.
- Helps members better understand the group’s goals. With a clearer indicator around what an Alliance is about, members have better signals as to how they can best contribute.
- Increases the depth of AvA. Alliances now have to think smarter about which tactics they want to adopt in response to member demand and competitive environment.
Are also unlocked with prestige by each person, for themselves.
We’re really excited about the new Tactics system. We think it will really expand the depth of gameplay.
This is one of the largest projects undertaken in content for the game. We’re building an awesome new storyline where you’ll travel north of the wall. You’ll have to confront the wildlings, wights and walkers and make it out alive. The Long Night will also contain a new world event.
How soon is soon? Pretty soon. We’ve been working on The Long Night for quite a while now. We wanted to make sure it was in good shape before we announced it. Join us on Facebook and Twitter for the latest updates on the release of The Long Night.
