If you say that it's "obviously" rigged then whan can anyone say to change your mind? Actually another watcher have been keeping track of odds on regular gem steals and retrieves and odds are very close to what is advertised. I don't really see why they would rig the maze instead if you can also get free orbs from locks and leagues, and much more tears with the subscription. Chances must be 5-10% for each, and keeping in mind each spin is an independent spin, I wouldn't count on getting them, although personally, I've gotten them surprisingly more that what I would expect. I don't believe it's rigged, I don't feel it's rigged, but that's obviously my opinion.
King of Thieves has just ended the maintenance and you can now play the game. The update 2.18 has been installed!
Guilds have been joining arena groups since the moment we're live, however we're still working on their perfect assignment. It will take some time. Meanwhile we'd like to post a couple of words about new features of this update:
Compete with other guilds inside Arenas and win more rewards. For each won battle during an Arena round your guild will get a special additional reward - an Arena chest. Beat your enemies and lead your guild to endless glory!
NEW RE-SPIN BONUS
Re-spins becomes more useful. Even if you don’t win a gem, now you can get a special bonus for your ritual! Don't worry, the bonus can't be larger than a gem you try to steal. And no, it's not deducted from the gem.
Update 2.18 is inevitable and, as usual, we’re going to share some info about it.
You may think that King of Thieves has become mad, but thing we will tell you about today is a major feature that completely rebuilds season mechanics. In order to highlight the volume of changes we will implement we decided to give it a new name. Starting from 2.18 all guilds will take part in Guild Arena, not Season Wars. So with 13th Season the era of Season Wars as you know it will join ancient campers and hit the dust. After that the new dawn of guild warfare will meet us at Guild Arena.
First of all we understand that you’d like to know about rewards. It will be still possible to get huge prizes and maybe even a little bit more in higher leagues. Members of lower leagues will struggle to go higher. Sooner or later if your guild is strong enough, you’ll be on the top. This is matter of skill and guild management. In general Guild Arena is like a leagues for players, but it takes 30 days to finish 1 round.
The second thing that is torturing you right now is the silent question: how will we determine winners in this mess? The answer is simple: by delta made during the 10 rounds of GvG which will be 1 round of Guild Arena. Sum of delta made for 10 rounds will place your guild in the list of your group and will determine will your guild go to the next devision, stay in current one or will be demoted.
After each round of Guild Arena new groups will be formed and the battles for glory will continue.
Strategically this approach will allow your guild to be more flexible because delta made will matter more than victories in a single GvG or even several of them. It means that your guild technically can take the 1st place in Guild Arena without winning a single fight in GvG.
This will make the game more challenging and will add way more sense to diplomacy. Enjoy the last days of current era with all its beauty and ugliness, because future is coming!
I guess they did it to balance things a bit more on lower levels and to give some purpose to other trones at later levels. I agree it's a bit unfair but the amount of players with maxed stuff is really small compared to the whole player base and those player would probably still have enough materials anyway and currently, it's actually equal for all players. It was a zepto decision and I doubt they would roll it back.
Because of some technical issues in the forum platform, facebook login is no longer available. If you used your facebook profile to navigate in the forums and you don't want to lose your identity (Or keep it secret under the same alias because, you, know, that's what thieves do ) there's a workaround for this and you can recover your account following these steps.
Click "Forgot password?" on the sign in at the top right of the website.
Write your email associated with your facebook account and fill the captcha to prove you are just a thief.
You will receive an email "Password recovery information from King of Thieves" and a link redirecting to the forums asking to validate you really did this action. (If this fails, there's another link below in the mail with your user ID and a validation key)
Once again in the forums just click to validate your action, this will send you another email, "Your new password King of Thieves".
There you would find your username (which should be your facebook name), the email you used to recover your profile, and a temporary password that you will use to log in and then you are supposed to change because if you can remember that, then you shouldn't be a thief after all.
You will keep your forum name, your facebook name (username) will remain hidden so you don't have to worry about that.
PS: I didn't really try to use my facebook name as my username (but I did try my email and it didn't work) and try the same password before I went through all these steps so that would be up to you to test.
Maybe making rituals has something to do with the modifiers, we still don't know. Let's wait for the update, we usually drown in a glass of water before any decision like this and none of them has turned out to be as bad as we thought be patient.
Until it goes out, I'll refrain from judging it by the cover... I definitely looks bad at first sight, but we don't know how numbers will change, both costs and upgrades. I doubt zepto would kick their own walking stick, and latest changes have been benefitial for the players (seal UG cost, increased rewards in numerous events) so I'll just wait to see what happens.
Lol I usually hate grave digs but this reminded me the whole situation and it was definitely way too funny It took a lot of planning and extensive use of mod tools but it was really worth it.
As for the necro guy, he must be referencing another contest and this just happened to be in the way, I kindly ask you to create another tread explaining yourself a bit more since we're open for any discussion.
It's not rigged... not this topic again... You just had to raid dungeons where green would be best pick or two greens on an all equal tiered ritual and pray the person you attacked was not ready to troll. Yes, there were moments where you wouldn't spin for the green gem, even if it was the best pick, but I also got raids where I rolled for the green despite of it not being the best pick... hell I even ran a ritual of a yellow 800k and two green mine gems and the yellow survived like 6 attacks between one star raids and "wrong" picks.

Personally, after the UG cost reduction, I was thinking sealing them like 999s, I needed to seal a couple 999 already and even dome original value due to xmas ones taking so much space... I'm not as hardcore to make them all 2.7m but I'll have space issues if I seal them all on their original value.
For your viewing pleasure (the reaper didn't make it into the pic, he's down there)

I don't really know where to start.....
Well, first of all, watchers are not the ones to decide if an idea makes it into the game or not, we are just mods, we don't work at or for zepto in any way so while we serve as a bridge between the community and zepto, our ideas, opinions and concerns weight as much as anyone else's.
You guys really need to calm down, I'm aware of the situation, I don't care who started it but I know who's ending it.. You really need to stop calling each other names, accept each other opinions and act civil around the forums. I don't want to read any berzerking comments, nobody will hurt anyone, quit the baits and out of place posts.
If you have an issue with a comment any other player posts, feel insulted or threatened in any way, please report that said post and we'll take appropriate action. If you are willing to discuss on topic like grown ups, topic will stay open, if I keep reading childlish posts and attitudes, the thread is going to get locked and warnings will start flying.

Not sure if I should try to guess since anything I say might be taken as official but explicitly clarifying that I know nothing about it (at least yet ), I hope they change gvgs making some kind of KoKL for guilds, where battles are more like free for all and delta matters to solve issues like manipulating matchups, giveaways and so on.
Also, I'd like to see retrieves dependant on how many stars the attacker did when he stole your gem. If you had a great base and the player just got lucky at a 1 star spin, it would be nice to see chances higher than the usual 30% when retrieving, on the other part, if you just got wrecked (or were doing a giveaway ), you should see less than the usual 30%. That would motivate people to make harder bases and stop manipulating stuff. (Making clear that the issues causing the giveaways would get fixed too).
As usual, as any other player, it would be nice to see new traps and layouts. If they implement the option to flip and mirror layouts I think I can die in peace
Decorations! asking for them since 2.4 hahaha but maybe this is too much already.
