Don't be mistaken: my question was only meant to clarify the reasons for this feat.

Regional difference, offering more legions/myriads than elsewhere

or

teamwork within alliances

In terms of teamwork within alliances, I can say as an nCrow player that Count Rupert sent me hearts; I didn't send him any.  Rupert is a dedicated player with a LOT of experience harvesting.  If you're impressed by his hearts, you should see his pile of rat furs.

I don't have an visibility on imbalances of hearts between region or spawn rates, but there are a lot of players in northeastern Elgea, and he still stands out from the pack.

He really is just that good.  It's a privilege to be in an alliance with him.

thx Rill, for this testimony.

Again, my question shouldn't be seen as any whining/complaint against Count Rupert or any alliance, but an open enquiry to 'dem devious devs' developments.

We (more or less seasoned) players of what I like to consider as a real time, extensive, ecologic  model of a social system, try and understand how it works.

(And I'd consider as  a clever and mind challenging, feature that many regions in Illyriad shift from an average, tedious set of features.)

Clearly there are many more event related NPC units in the Wolgast and/or Winlost areas than most, I'm not sure why this is even a question based on the sheer numbers. There would be no way in hell someone could harvest that many units in the areas I've seen. Do we know when the event will conclude?

The link is not working for me either Koda :/

From GM Cerberus

Direct Link To This Post Posted: 04 Oct 2017 at 21:41 Hey folks,

Just wanted to make some clarifications.  First off, this isn't a tournament, this is a running event that will have a conclusion.  After the event is over, the Kerberos units will be sticking around as the link forged between the underworld and Elgea & Broken Lands by the Tower is permanent(?).  

The Underworld Unleashed event is something new and will continue to evolve and impact Illyriad with things yet to come.

I should have been explicit in the post, I just thought that saying it's a "New Event" and not a New Tournament would be sufficient.

We have adjusted spawn rates for Broken Lands and will continue to monitor the event as it progresses.

Regards,

GM Cerberus

In the Wolgast and Tamarin area, spawnings have now declined and other areas are showing increased spawning, ie; the BL; Aindara, Clarien, The Long White, and Strendur.

Fun fact: In an experiment to see if it was able to be done and if I could gather any info, I killed a legion sitting on the Hellmouth spawning portal near my town. I was successful in killing the Legion, but gained no useful info. Now there are 84 HoD sitting on top of the portal, unable to be harvested! I didn't think that far ahead, assumed my troops would die in the search for information Confused

Watch for two armies trying to occupy the same square. If they are not from the same Underworld Division, they will fight each other and drop hearts. I watched a Myriad in Wolgast, that I had just scouted, turn into a Host when another division tried to occupy the same square. I scouted after and found 2 units from the attacking army survived the fight and joined the winning army. Within an hour the army left, and I harvested the hearts. Smile

Very interesting that some units survived.  Would love to see those scout reports.

While it is possible to scout or attack on a hellmouth - or other impassable terrain - trade units cannot go there.

(The scouting and attack were achieved by selecting an adjacent tile and, using the red arrows on the 3 by 3 grid, (similar to when sieging a city tile) moving the target
