although the dev's have tried to give us illians different style event which we do appreciate there effort, even if its a flawed attempt.

We would like however some explanation or solutions if possible from the dev's to what's happening if anything.

Seems to me since you started making AGE OF ASENT content for illy has slowly dried up to a trickle which we as a community begrudgingly understand because of AOA , but come on guys couple of years ago you showed us a new UIv4 that got put on the backburner you introduced broken lands great!! but it seem to be devoid of any meaningful content that I can see anyway. No story arc , no poi like the rift HOC ect ect.

we the community would like some answers to these questions. How about a Q and A session with your vision for illy post AOA???

I am very grateful for the tourney. 
It just seems very strange to me that entire regions could have unr 5 hell mouths when others have 50.  I am just trying to understand if this is some part of a grand plan that will balance out later in the tourney, a random occurence that is part of the programming, or a glitch that the devs intend to fix.

Just because some regions have more Hellmouths, does not necessarily require that they spawn more Kerberos armies. The spawn speed could be different. Each point could also send armies into nearby regions.

Also, just because some regions have more Kerberos armies, does not necessarily mean that they are of identical size. People have reported Gathering size up to Myriad size. That's a lot of variation.

If the number of hearts dropped in each region varies wildly, then that specifically indicates an imbalance. The other factors are just visual. Drop rate corresponds directly to medal advancement, as I understand this particular tournament.

I think Ten Kulch pretty much nailed it. As he points out - they can send armies anywhere from any Hellmouth and - certainly at present, the important thing seems to be the gathering of the HoDs. Whether that will change at some point in the future who knows - all we can do is go with what we know at present.

Having said that, after an initial sighting of two armies near me (which I killed) I've seen no more despite constant checking. I've no idea if the spawns have dropped of in Elgea as well or if it's just a case of they don't feel like coming near me. To be honest, I don't really care anymore.

I have killed over 10 packs of these NPC's without receiving a single HoD or Exp for my commanders. At most, I get 1000 gold...I also haven't seen anything larger that a pack where they are popping up near my cities. You cannot hunt very far out, since they move pretty fast. I've missed more than I have killed. This is my first tournament since I have started  playing, and I must say, I am disappointed. There is no way I can get to the upper levels of the medals, in fact, I gave many away so everyone I knew had a chance of getting a medal. I don't like to complain, but it would have been okay, if I at least could get commander Exp for hunting them, but I guess the groups are so small it doesn't even register. It seems very unfairly distributed across the map, and the groups sizes are inconsistent as well, across the map. I also should point out that the hearts I did get were from the very beginning when I went out and cleared all the paws I could find that weren't being collected because no one realized yet they started dropping parts.

Kimmyeo:
Try and scout the squares you have killed Underworld Armies at. Maybe you will discover something is dropped on the square. 

It is correct you get gold on the actual report but you don't see the HoD drops in the report.

--
Another thing:
How long is this tournament running for? I cannot find any dates anywhere.

This is a bad event Ouch because:

1) Location. It plays too large a role, due to spawn rate, spawn density and despawn rate.  Anyone who has cities within 3 hours of the spawn locations have such a huge advantage since the spawns move so quickly.  If you have a cluster of cities within 3 hours, you have won the jackpot.

2) Cavalry is the best attack units because of #1.  
    -->If you have mostly cavalry and a good location your advantage over all other players is laughably huge.

3) Prestige speeding harvesters for the win. 

Good Idea, bad execution. 

A better event:
1) spawns much more random (not clustered)
2) spawns don't despawn until killed or event ends 
    -->(more in theme with a wave of them coming to overtake the land)
3) the longer a spawn is around the more it grows: every 8 hours double unit amount.
4) some spawns seriously punish different types of units.  i.e, if you want this spawn camp you better send swords or archers, if you send even a 100,000 cavalry they will all die.  ... force people to scout the squares.  Like literally units with stats like:  
Spawn Example Defense: 15/5/15/100000 
Spawn Example Defense: 25/1511111/25/10 
Spawn Example Defense: 15111111/275/115/10111111
etc (just never one that has all crazy defense)
or the idea of instant death for some units vs defense:  DEATH / 123/ 122 / DEATH
if you send the death types they die. 


This would make scouting a requirement.  Currently there is no requirement, calvary is just 1000% better due to speed and lack of any kind of real punishment (for large players).

Money is god of Illyriad,  unfortunately.
