  • Why am I not able to party with my friends? Does anyone know how? I tried clicking on the small yellow thing beside my friend's name, I can't click on it.

    Parties are currently disabled for 2.4 in matchmaker, you can still team up with friends in customs though. You can also just time a queue with a friend to end up in the same game.
  • Thank you Astraea!
  • Hi, im new and have a lot of questions. I got the game yesterday and have played around 3 games, but never one with anyone real in it. I was tooling around the shop and stuff and I cant quite figure out how a few things

    1. How do the attack bases level up? I'm pretty sure its got somthing to do with how the players play but not sure exactly what does it.

    2. What does leveling up the base do?

    3. When I went into a custom game with only myself, the minions I chose were not the ones that came out. I was playing the werewolf offence guy if that matters. So my question is how do I affect the enemies that we send out?

    4. What do the jars do?

    5. What do the neutral objectives do?

    6. The trap limit of 65, is that per player or for the entire team?

    Thanks, Blef

    1: The primary ways to level up your warcamps currently are by: escorting your minions through the enemy killboxes, and breaking jars for the little items that pop out.

    2: Leveling up the warcamps provides you with an opportunity to insert "higher tier" minions into the camps. So generally, tier 4 minions are better than tier 3, etc etc. 

    3: So you were playing Blackpaw, and you entered a custom game of endless? siege? which deck did you pick for your minion load out? The minions you can use are determined by what you put in your deck. Warcamps by default though will spawn 9 orcs until you put something in them.

    4: Jars currrently give an alternative way for players to get exp and obtain leadership to open/upgrade warcamps. It is in your best interest to protect these from enemy players and try to get as many yourself.

    5: Neutral objectives are the way to spawn bosses. If you capture both of them, your team can spawn a boss in either opened warcamp for free for the next 60 seconds.

    6: The trap limits are set for the entire team, there is no per player trap cap.

    I played another game and now have figured it out. I didn't understand that you had to "put in" minions and things, I thought it just sort of... happened. Lol there is nothing in the game that tells you to do that at the start or anything.

    Yeah, no worries! There's a bit of a learning curve with it like there is with any other game. They're rewriting the tutorial system that used to there to explain some base concepts. It's just hard to keep the tutorial up to date while they make big gameplay changes every patch as well.

    Play enough games of your desired gameplay style (being Siege or Survival, or both), and you'll quickly get the hang of things for the most part.
  • whens the fix for the redeem codes coming
  • Hey! :smile: just got the game and play a bit but i noticed i've only been playing with bots. why is that? I've been playing "siege" supposedly 5 players vs 5 players. why am i only playing with bots? or is it because there are only a few players online?

    There are two "buckets" of normal (non co-op) siege matches currently: 
    One if you less than 5 total wins in siege. This one will fill any missing player spots with bots after a certain amount of queue time. (3 min)
    Another if you have 5 or more wins in siege. This one will *only* match 5 players vs 5 players. (queue runs until the match is found)

    Long time player returning. Questions:

    1. Do you still seperate players by level into their own seperate ques? I'm mostly interested in PvP, yet can only find bots at the moment. 
    EDIT- Hit level 5, no more bot games, so yeah this feature must still be in place. 

    2. What times are PvP active - I can expect 5v5s, or is the new endless mode the only thing people are playing?

    3. I pulled a consumable out of a chest, but can't seem to put it in my deck. Is this a feature yet to be added?

    That's a known issue with the newest patch, it is suggested to just turn off your antivirus for the download and turn it back on after.

  • Hello, Ive just bought one of the bundles which grants me close beta access. But when i try to download it take me to this page http://puu.sh/n21vL/5f4c255eda.png  . I was wondering if im the only one with this problem or was it intentional and i just have to wait. Thank you for your time.
  • I have not seen that issue... I just attempted to log in - to see if I would get the error - and I did not. I did get the normal error you see when the beta window isn't open (Thursday night through Sunday night), so maybe you were hitting it when it was being worked on - or something?

    Didn't get the error here either. What browser are you using?

    Is there any way to earn gold through in-game means besides purchasing it?
