ATTACK TICKETS IMPROVEMENT




Defenders can now see the values of the Attack Tickets for each Creature when they place it in their Castle. Also, the total Tickets that can be aggroed at the same time by the adjacent group of monsters is shown above the creature that you’re moving around. Defenders can, of course, go over that limit but some Creatures will have to wait their turn to attack.

We’ve also slightly increased the amount of Creatures that can have a Ticket and therefore join the fight outside of the Boss Room.

Here is a table of the new values:



CROWNS – DIMINISHING RETURNS

The amount of Crowns an Attacker can get when Attacking the same Castle will diminish with each failed attempt to reach the Castle’s Treasure Room:
  • Each failed attempt will reduce the amount of Crowns the Attacker can get to 60%, 30%, 10% and 5%. As an example, if the first attempt is worth 20 Crowns, the second attempt will be worth (20 * 0.6) = 12 Crowns.
  • After the first failed attempt, the Attacker can once again lose Crowns in that Castle after 15 minutes have passed. The Timer and Crowns are displayed in the UI.

PER-HERO REGION UNLOCKS

Each Hero will have to individually unlock the in-game Regions. Defeat the Boss with a Hero to unlock the next Region for that Hero. The Boss Castle can only be Attacked if your Hero is above the minimum Level range for that Region.

As this is implemented, the following will happen to existing accounts:
  • The highest Level Hero will inherit all the Region unlocks the account previously had.
  • Other heroes will unlock Regions up to their Level.


BUG FIXES

  • We fixed an issue where Gold and Life Force Mines had only 1 HP.
  • We fixed a network error that was caused by Attacking a Player directly from the Leaderboards UI if that Player had just changed Leagues.
  • We fixed a UI bug with dragging and dropping Creatures and Traps into the Castle Inventory.
  • We fixed a bug that sometimes allowed a Trap to be powered outside the radius of a Trap Generator.
  • We fixed a bug that caused Traps to remain connected when they were picked up and moved.
  • We fixed some bugs with the Castle Rollback, which prevented the proper message from being displayed.
  • We fixed a crash that could occur when running out of your current potion type and automatically switching to the next potion during the current Attack.
  • We fixed a display bug when moving some Traps.
  • We fixed some missing fonts in the Castle’s name on the homepage.
  • We made some adjustments to the visual effect of the Mage’s Death Grip when using it against swarms of enemies.
  • We fixed a bug that caused the replays to be invalid when the pets were set to loot a specific item quality

Hello Opulencians!

Last week we released a small patch as part of our ongoing anticheat efforts, implementing new systems that have been in the works for some time (as we previously mentioned in one of our earlier updates) We didn’t announce this update beforehand because it’s not smart to give a heads-up to the cheaters. The only thing one should give to a cheater is the business end of the Sir Ban Hammer (as we like to call it).

And our support teams have been doing just that in the past week. We have been analyzing the data produced by the anticheat systems and banning the guilty players. We have been ramping up the number of investigations and bans, even if it might be hard to notice at a first glance (because fighting against cheaters is a neverending game of whack-a-mole that we will continue to play every day).

To those who are thinking of giving into the temptation of cheating: for the love of loot, don’t do it! We have a zero tolerance policy when it comes to such things. We have a very particular set of skills, we will look for you, we will find you and we will ban you. And by using shady third party tools to try to cheat you are also exposing yourself to all sorts of nasty infections (of the computer variety, though you can never be quite sure...).

Updates to the anticheat systems will be continuously implemented as soon as they are ready. Cheaters will never be welcome in Opulencia, the land of the looters!

Greetings Opulencians,

We're currently rolling out a seamless maintenance, so the game won't be down, but you might experience issues connecting to the game. The maintenance is expected to last 3 hours.

Thanks for your patience,
Errok.

DON’T PUT A LEASH ON THAT PUPPY!



All the pets in the world of Opulencia have learned new tricks: they will collect items, life force and gold for you! And four new looting companions are available for purchase in Cornelius’ Emporium! Just one look at their little faces and you’ll be saying “Can I keep them, huh huh, can I???”



CASTLE ROLLBACK – THE UNDO BUTTON



Not happy with the recent change you made to your castle’s defenses? Revert to the previously validated setup with the click of a button. Now it’s easier than ever to experiment and find out which combos of creatures and traps gets the most “owies” from the attackers.



TARGETED ATTACKS – FRIENDLY COMPETITION



Just because you’re good friends doesn’t mean you shouldn’t be looting each other! The Targeted Attack feature literally opens the doors to the treasure room of your friends’ castles. One can never have too many crowns and your unsuspecting friends are ripe for the taking.

  • Fix a bug where the corpse was difficult to select when placed over a trap.
  • Fixed a bug that caused the highlight that should appear when selecting the power supply of a trap to be invisible.
  • Fixed a bug where you could select entities behind visible walls.


WHAT’S NEXT?


We haven’t forgotten about creatures and traps balancing but the design changes are not ready yet. Introducing incomplete systems could imbalance the game further so we have to think everything through and properly test it all.

A piece of good news comes from the programmers, who have been working on new anticheat measures, they are almost ready to be implemented and we are already banning cheaters from the game. In the world of Opulencia, hard work looting is the only way to get ahead!

Hello Opulencians,

First Things First... Again


Good news, everyone! the UI Defense bug is now fixed! As announced yesterday, we have postponed the Defense Contest to refine it some more, and we will keep you updated about it soon.

Following last week’s Patch, we have received a lot of feedback concerning how few Creatures were actually balanced after one week of work. We want to emphasize that Balancing isn’t just “changing numbers in a table” as some of you may think: all Creatures and Traps statistics are intrinsically linked and are interdependent.

We are currently rethinking the entire relationship between Minions, Elites and Traps, and you will be updated in the upcoming weeks as we progress. Such Balancing needs to be designed, tested, implemented and deployed before you guys can actually benefit from it (which is why each Patch might seem small to you, but actually represents a lot of work).

With that said, we have just published a new Patch today!

Patch Notes


BUGS

  • Fixed a Castle Inventory UI bug with the Drag & Drop function
  • Fixed a memory leak causing UI lag
  • Fixed a crash triggered by deleting a Room with both wired and unwired Traps
  • Fixed a Tutorial bug that allowed players to place too many Creatures

EXPLOIT

  • Fixed an issue where players couldn’t get attacked if their Castle was below Level 5
  • A user now cannot attack a PVP Castle if his own Castle is under Level 5

USER INTERFACE

  • Selecting a Trap or Creature will display other Traps or Creatures’ footprints when hovering over them

What’s next?


Next week, we will release a new Pack for the game. Packs are like your weekly Patches, only monthly and bigger in size and features. What is going to be on the menu this month? We wouldn’t want to spoil anything, but the Runaway will definitely be happy about it. Also Pet lovers. And people that would like to be able to roll back their Castles to their previous validated states every now and then. And more!

Until then fellow looters, keep giving us your feedback!

Hello Opulencians!

Remember a few weeks ago when we launched the Ultimate Contest? The goal was to allow five random winners to walk away with one of our shiny, sparkly Ultimate Diamond Packs!

Thousands of players signed in to get their hands on the precious pack, and now (as the contest just closed), we are ready to announce the winner. Are you? Of course you are, but first let us create a bit of suspense by reminding you what you will win if your name is chosen...

First Things First


We wanted to let everyone know that we are aware of the recent bug that is causing the UI to freeze, and we are working on a fix. Until it's deployed, we'll be putting the Welcome to Opulencia: Defense Contest on hold to make sure everyone has the time they need to build the Best Castle in Opulencia. We'll announce new dates once this issue is resolved.

The Ultimate Diamond Pack


As you’re probably aware by now, our Diamond Packs is the way for you to truly loot in style in the kingdom of Opulencia. These Packs are chock-full with new and exclusive content - may it be the early access to our new Hero, the Runaway, or to our new Castle Theme and its boss, Flameo. We have several Packs on the shelf, each designed for a specific type of player: Attacker, Defender, Versatile, you name it. But we have one Pack that is the top of the top, and that is the Ultimate Diamond Pack.

Ultimate Pack


The Ultimate Diamond Pack not only contains everything that the other Packs offer (the early access to the Runaway with her special "Red Hair" Skin and "Floating Notes" FX, to the Flameo Castle Theme and Boss, a metric-ton of Blings and Boosts (measurement to be confirmed)), but also more completely exclusive content:

  • SHINY UNDERPANTS for all characters (and by SHINY, we mean… SHINY):
    Underpants
  • The most adorable Pet, Princess Pufflefang:
    Pet
  • And 4 exclusive Emotes for your characters:
    Emotes

The Ultimate Winners


Now we've (re)introduced the Diamond Packs, let's talk about the concept of winning and the consequences it could have on your daily existence... Not interested? Well fine, I guess we've kept you waiting long enough. Let's see who the happy owners of our Ultimate Pack are...
  • Ghost63
  • Tynyz
  • Crepeas
  • SAINTandSINNER
  • Monclevar

Congratulations! We'll contact you via email with the code to your ULTIMATE Diamond Pack!
