A Final Bewitchery...
In the thicket of battle, the stranger's red energy begins to swirl with a life of its own. It's being harnessed by forces unknown, hiding amongst the legions of world-hoppers defending their respective witches.
Dopplegangers? Wizards? A mystery until their sudden disappearance, along with their influence. The Witches War rages on.
Recently, we discovered a few instances of rule breaking which skewed the points in the Witches War. This was too significant to ignore, so after extensive investigation and some deliberation, we've decided to do the following.
44,283 points will be removed from Team Glume on December 10th, 4AM DVT
The Witches War event has been extended to:
Sunday December 11th, 8PM DVT
This will give all teams a final fighting chance at victory.
- After rollover tonight, the bonus point gain will be reduced to just 1%, effectively giving the teams a relatively even battlefield for the final showdown.
- We're hoping that these updates make the best of a difficult and unique situation, and we'll also be looking into ways to safeguard against this for other events of this type in the future.
- A 15 minute maintenance will occur on December 12th 12AM DVT - 4 hours after the team battle ends - to conclude the storyline.
- The Stranger's Wares shop stock will be moved to a new place, with the seasonal summer clothing continuing to be available for purchase there until December 16th.
- Complete the "Traversing the Warring Forest" quest for 14 days in total in order to unlock more content after maintenance!
We'd like to ask that in the future, if anyone sees possible examples of rule breaking, to please report it through the ticket desk only and refrain from discussing it publicly on site or in our Discord Server. This kind of action can unintentionally lead to witch hunts and harassment, which are against our Rules of Conduct and harmful overall to the community. Rule breaking should not be grounds to be harassed by other users, allow us to be the mediator. Thank you very much!
Thank you for playing and supporting Dappervolk, we'll be back with event conclusions. May the strongest witch win!
oh my, thanks for the update!
Sorry to Team Glume for the problems this caused. <3
Cheating is super lame and uncool.
It's awfully scummy of a thing to do and sucks that it's turned out the way it has. It's true that none of the legitimate points or efforts of team glume's members went to waste (only the fraudulent points are being removed if I understand right) but they DID get robbed of multiple opportunities for the 30% bonus that they would have likely had, if their score wasn't artificially inflated like it was. I think the event extension is meant to give a couple more opportunities at that bonus if team glume was meant to have it.
I hope everyone ends up having their fair shot after all this!
That being said, at least the rewards are the same for everybody besides some potatoes so it isn't that big of a deal, it's just sketchy from the staff imo.
But yeah, again, at least we don't have exclusive items for winners and such things, it's just not very encouraging to dedicate to future community events.
Glumelings, what happened?.. We must play fairly, it's just 10k taters :')
All that happened feels SO disheartening, I feel I have been excited for nothing and just wasted my time and thoughts. Gah just 1 cheater, and everyone's fair game is ruined and efforts made in vain.
It's not just 10k taters, as Fumilex stated above "some of the accounts would have earned 3 mil or more potatoes" from all the duel wins rewards, so it's likely that they dont care who wins the witch war, they just want the potatoes.
Sadly the cheating accounts happened to be in glume team :")
i saw 7-8 accounts linked by someone, i only checked a couple but they both had over 7k duel wins, so it was...shockingly extensive.
after reading FumiLEX's post above, i suppose it makes sense why they went so over the top about it, though. that's a lot of ill-gotten potatoes to be made.
