Events

MarchAcrosstheBelts.jpg

March Across the Belts 12/10 - 12/17

This week is our March Across the Belts Event!

In 1655, King Charles X invaded Poland and took Warsaw in a lightning campaign remembered as the Swedish Deluge. However, Russia invaded his lands while his army was bogged down quelling Polish resistance. The king needed an excuse to leave without giving the appearance of retreat. When Denmark attacked Sweden in June 1657, Charles saw an opportunity to save face and slowly made his way back north.

By the time he was ready to move on the Danish island capital, an unusually cold winter had frozen the straits. Since no fleet could sail, the Danes thought they were safe. But Charles just ordered his army to march across the belts. Though the ice buckled at times, submerging the soldiers up to their knees, it did not break. Caught completely off guard, the Danish king surrendered and signed the Treaty of Roskilde, ceding the southernmost provinces of modern Sweden.

Enjoy these discounts for a limited time! (Automation Age levels will not be discounted.)

25% off the following building upgrades:
• War Academy
• Command Post
• Decoy Trap
• Ambush Trap

33% off the following War Tactic upgrades:

@Harlems369th @TheWise
Can you clarify what people can expect from those rewards in MANUFACTORY SUPPLY PASS?
Is it 5x1 or is 5x10?
Is it 100x1 or is 100x10?
We know production rate is 10 so by picture it should be reward multiplied x10. Isn't it logical like that?

Which one of these is true? 100 = 100, or 100 = 1000? ;)
It doesn't say =.
It's say x.
And if you know when you press material it say amount produced 10 and you can't produce 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9 pcs. You can produce only 10. So it's logical amount of material(which is 10) should be multiplied with number outside.

Each panel shows how much of each material you'll get. That final panel is 5x Platinum on the Free tier, and 100x Platinum for Premium.

That is not logical.
Materials are sorted by 10pcs.
We can't produce less than 10.
But OK, BHG logic in maths is never logic.
I understand how that might be confusing. But even in the Manufactory, it is X*10 where X = 1 of the material. This is the same formula for what appears on the Episode Pass.

@Harlems369th clearly a mistake has been made. The event rewards are being given out in units of 2. This surely is meant to be 2x 10 units?

I mean, what is anyone supposed to do with 2 iron? As Tedi925 says above, you can’t even produce these resources in units less than 10.

You’d have to collect 5 of these rewards to have a unit that can be used for anything.

This is the biggest first world complaint I've seen in DomiNations, and there have been many (I've made some). The Manufactory is meant to function for years, not days, so 2 or 5 of something is fine. You'll get 2 or 5 more in the future to eventually make sets of 10. It's going to be alright.

The exact same description is used inside the Manufactory. x10 means 10 there too, have a look. So it just happens to manufacture 10 at a time. When you see x10 inside the Manufactory do you expect it to create 100?

Not a first world complaint. Clearly it’s a mistake. 2 carbon (i.e.) equates to a 45 second speed up for a lvl 1 manufactory, or a 22.5 second speed up for a lvl 5. Have you ever seen such a small reward? Normally events give out 1 hour or 30 minute speedups.

Then your request is to give more materials, not to change how the 'x' modifier works in the Rewards tab.

Could be. The rewards are measly (especially for anyone considering the paid premium pass), and it seems out of keeping with the rest of the game. Plus I guarantee that being stuck with unusable fractions of resources will offend a lot of ppl’s OCD. :p

Agreed, this won't help with OCD :) They did get rid of 5 minute speedup rewards at some point, so I reckon they'll do something similar here; at least for the likes of Carbon although 5 or even 2 Platinum is worth the click.

Even a little bit of something is better than a whole lot of nothing. Regardless of whether the rewards are measly (and yeah, they are a bit 😁 ) it's an accumulation effect over time - as @SomeRandomPlayer said.
You can't expect them to give you 100 components any more than they'll give you legendary councillors for free?
