Greetings!

We're excited to announce a new set of totems that winning alliances in a region may choose to provide unique enhancements throughout the region.  Four of these new totems provide racial basic resource production bonuses for every player of the selected race in that region. (Note: "Basic Resources" bonuses refer to Wood, Clay, Iron, Stone & Food only).

TotemNameBonus
250ResearchOverflowing Insight+50% Research Point Bonus
250DwarfHeart of the Mountain+8% Basic Resources for Dwarves
250ElfSylvan Vigour+8% Basic Resources for Elves
250HumanBoon of Honour+8% Basic Resources for Humans
250OrcFury of the Horde+8% Basic Resources for Orcs

With the conclusion of the Summer 2020 Tournament, these totems will be available along with the previously released totems.

Congrats to the winners, enjoy picking your totems!

Good for troop sov 
Good for new players
Good for high taxes on the rs points
Yeah! It's good.

Also maybe good for timing on account limit?

Thanks GM Cerberus, interesting new bonuses.    Question:   Do we still have the option of selecting a resource bonus without the racial designation, like the last tourney?

These are exciting for race specific alliances but not for most alliances who are mixed race.

Hi Starry,

Yes - all the existing totem options will still be available; these new ones are entirely additive/optional.

Best,

SC

Is +50% Research Point Bonus a typo? Seems a lot better than everything else ...

thanks for the additional options Devs, but thanks for keeping the others also as a lot of alliances are mixed race so new options are detrimental to some alliances

I may be slow... but does +8% Basic Resources for Humans means +8% for wood, clay, iron, stone and food ?

Yes.

Thanks just confirming Pinch 

So that means 'Cornucopia +5% Food' totem could be easy replaced with new 'Boon of Honour' totem to get +8% Food and +8% on other resources as well...

Does anyone know from where it can be changed I dont see any option on Regional Bonuses page...

The leadership of the alliance that won the region has to choose which if any bonus will apply there.

Hi all,

It came to our attention about half an hour ago that new totem selection wasn't working (for anyone).

This is now fixed, and you should be able to choose your new totems if you wish.

Can I urge everyone to get in touch with us via a) petition, b) forum post or c) igm to Cerberus if something major is broken for everyone?  

I think y'all relied on someone else letting us know, and the end result was that no-one let us know at all - until I accidentally saw it mentioned, in passing, in GC :)

Thanks very much in advance!

SC

Oh, and we're also aware on the tournament summary and detail pages that the current date format isn't very helpful (eg "Sun Mar 2020")... This'll be fixed very shortly.

Thanks again,

SC
