Where did my Honor Scrolls go? Honor Scrolls have been replaced by Honor (no last name, just like Beyonce). Honor will expire at the end of each season and be converted to gold so it’s wise to spend it all before the next season begins!
Will I still get Honor Scrolls for summoning friends? What about the Tower of PWNage? Will I still get Honor Scrolls from there? Since Honor is now more closely tied to PvP, a Quick Loot Key is now the reward for summoning a friend (or being summoned), and we’ve removed Honor Scrolls but increased the amount of PWNage Points players can gain in the Tower of PWNage.
What will happen to the Honor Portal? In order to help everyone get used to the new PvP and Honor system, we’re keeping the Honor Portal exactly the same for now. Plans are in place to shake things up in the future, though. You will be able to spend your new Honor currency here just like you used to with Honor Scrolls.
What will happen to any unused Honor Scrolls when the new PvP system starts? They’ll be automatically converted to gold, at an exchange rate of 250 gold per scroll.
What happens to the current Pontifex token rewards for PvP tournaments? Pontifex Tokens will migrate over to the new Honor Shop for this first Pre-Season. His tokens will be available to players that ascend to certain leagues. And you can always find his tokens in the Honor Portal.
Why does Honor expire at the end of each Season now?
This is something that we've introduced to take advantage of the improved Honor Shop and to add a sense of immediacy in a given Season. This allows us to introduce various high-value items with each season that all players can aspire to earn in that Season. And of course, we'll be monitoring player feedback and making adjustments as we go.
How many Leagues are there and how is my placement determined? There are 6 Leagues, comprised of 3 Tiers each for a total of 18 League Tiers. For the initial Pre-Season, players will be placed in the bottom 10 League Tiers based on level. Subsequent Seasons will use total Trophy count from the previous Season for League Tier placement purposes.
What are the names of the Leagues and Their Tiers? These are the six Leagues, from lowest to highest. Each League has three tiers with the lowest being III and the highest being I. In total, there are 18 League Tiers:
• Recruit (III, II, I)
• Brawler (III, II, I)
• Gladiator (III, II, I)
• Champion (III, II, I)
• Warlord (III, II, I)
• Legend (III, II, I)
What happened to all the Hammers I spent previously upgrading my chest? Unfortunately, you won’t be able to get those hammers back due to the way the new Hammer system works in regards to protecting chests. However, for those of you who may not have saved up a ton of hammers, we’ll be granting a one-time allotment to ensure that you have a healthy amount to safeguard your chest.
I used to collect my chest once an hour for a decent amount of Gold… does collecting Daily get me a similar amount to what I used to collect over a day?
This is entirely dependent on your League Tier…the higher the Tier, the more gold you will collect. For most players, this will be more than what they used to get, but again, it is dependent on your League Tier.
Why is Gold and Honor fixed per Raid – it used to be based on my opponent?
Gold and Honor are now fixed because the new PvP system matches you with players who are around your same skill level. As you progress through the League Tiers, your opponents become more challenging—and your Gold and Honor will go up accordingly per Tier.
What happens to my trophies at the end of the Season?
A percentage (about 80%, but subject to change) of your trophies will carry over into the next season to determine your League Tier placement. The amount of trophies that are able to transfer will also be capped between seasons.
What’s the difference between a Pre-Season and a Season?
Because this is an entirely new PvP system we wanted to make sure that players had a chance to try it out and give us their feedback. For this reason, these first few Seasons are actually Pre-Seasons. Expect some fine-tuning before the official launch of Seasons. You can give us your feedback here on the forums.
