Outcast Ships Attack in the 1.16 Battle Event Update!
Dragon trainers – we need your feedback on our latest update! The word is out and we are previewing the beginning stages of the highly anticipated BATTLE EVENT, which mean the time has finally come for you to test your skills in SoD’s 1.16 update! With only one catapult standing guard from rival tribes, the shores of the Training Grounds have been left vulnerable. Are you ready to do your part as we rally together to defend Berk and the school grounds? Head to Campus now to await the signal and enjoy all that 1.16 has to offer: http://smarturl.it/WorldEvent116!
With news of incoming Outcast ships, the Headmaster has already sent a team of scouts ahead to monitor the shores so to keep everyone updated on the status of the Isle’s defenses. That way you will know no matter WHERE your adventures take you so that you can come prepared! Make sure you have an adult dragon ready when this new Battle Event begins!
To join in the battle -- that is, if you are willing and ready, we will alert all of campus when Berserker ships draw near with a simple notification! As soon as the message pops up to inform you that your efforts are needed, saddle up your dragon and head to the Training Grounds immediately with the click of a button! You will only have a few minutes to act, so don’t hesitate or you might lose your chance to fire on the incoming scout ship! If you do not wish to allocate your skills toward contributing to the battle, however, just collapse the message or ignore it until time runs down on the clock.
Fly around with your fellow Vikings and blast away at the attacking ships until you’ve sunk the vessel. But remember -- you cannot do this alone. Turn to your clan and fellow trainers to work together and earn rewards as these attacking Berserker Ships move quickly toward the Training Grounds. A tribe of troublesome and ferocious Viking warriors, the Outcasts, have made their legend known for their uncontrollable and often frightening nature.
And that’s not all, in addition to the sneak peek of the Battle Event, the SoD team has also been hard at work to bring updates to your dragons fire power, performance and health, which will become very important in the next few updates! Are you brave enough to rise up for battle and ready to enjoy all the other optimizations that 1.16 brings to campus? Head there now: http://smarturl.it/WorldEvent116!
Zero you should really go in game and wait for battle like 5 minutes ago 20 vikings were shooting at ship,we lost but it was really funny and you get reward after battle
Thx brave Im glad u like it, I know I will.
*waits at monitor for ships*
Shockwave and I are going to win for SURE!
Can't wait to try uit for my self. How oftn do the ships come round?
Thats awesome Brynjolf i was just in one of battles and i finished 7 and i got artic fox for reward even if we did loose
No fair, I get worse prizes and I WIN????!!!!
Had lots of fun, for now it is a very good update. I do suggest a few things though when you fully come out with this:
1. Show stats in detail, what we have now is good. In order to choose an effective dragon we need all the stats though. Like shot limit, damage, HP, and as much info as you can get into these.
2. You should work on a practice version, so we can practice for these big events. Basically a weak ship with low fire power and HP so you can practice on it when you need to, maybe a ship that spawns every 5 minutes after it is destroyed or something like that. And it just gives out 100 coins or something like that.
Also i have a cool idea, I love love love the new shot counter and recharger. It is perfect, though give dragons a special ability that uses up all the shots. The abilities do not have to be fully developed right now, just simple things like:
Rapid fire shots, when full your dragon can unload all shots very fast.
High damage blast, one shot doing loads of damage.
Speed boost, mostly for the Skrill. You get the same speed boost as you do in thunder run racing.
Armor boost, increases your armor. For bolder class dragons.
These are a bit easy to do and should not take up much time, they are good place holders until you guys can fully put lots of work into it.
I agree the skrill deserves a speed boost considering thats its ability (to ride lightning)
And the range for Skrills should be increased, lightning can hit an object several miles away. You can add storm clouds so Skrills can shoot continuously at the ships as they pass by.
I loved it!We got victory!But...I think I have a bug.I got Gold Treasure and got from it 75 gems.But the gems were not added.Only I have this issue?
Brynjolf may I ask how long this is going to run, is it only a week or....
Is this update included on the mobile app or do I have to play on the computer?
I would love to try this out but I seem to have terrible luck with timing. I had to request a new password for my account as mine didn't seem to be working. I haven't seen hide nor hair of Berserkers or Outcast ships. Also, just putting it out there that at the end of the second season, Berk and the Outcasts are friends, or at least have a common enemy. Stoick and Alvin made up, so it doesn't make sense that they'd attack.
Thanks! Just played my first battle and it was great!
I LOVE IT, I have no words! I tried once but sadly we've been defeated... Oh well, there are a lot of battles ahead! thanks so much! I didn't see that coming soon but of course the thinks you wait, are coming when you're not expecting it! XD
Hey Brynjolf. I have a couple suggestions. First one being relatively simple:
Make the NPCs take part in it. Maybe have Astrid and Hiccup flying on Stormfly and Toothless respectively.
Second, even if it's just for show, have some of the others firing at the ship, even if it does no damage whatsoever.
Also, in the end of the TV series, Alvin and Stoick made up. They're no longer enemies, so having the Outcast scout ship makes no sense, as you guys have borrowed several aspects from the series, all three of them.
Other than those few minor things, McDonalds.
I don't know. I think having both Outcast and Berserker ships is a decent compromise to any person who likes one enemy tribe over the other as a bad guy they want to fight. (And trust me there are some people like that who want to go against one tribe far more than the other) Those particular Outcasts might just be rogue ones that still don't like Berk despite the treaty. Kind of like how Mildew still doesn't like dragons dispite the rest of Berk being fine with them now.
It's finally here! I can't wait to try this out later today. X]
Ik not happy i vang play it i waait more than an hout and stil no ships
It's been working out great! My sister and I love joining different servers every few hours to defeat the ship that appears! And we've gotten plently of prizes from the event, itself. Thank you again for this! =)
Hey what's the Monstrous Nightmare Gel everyone's talking about?
It's part of the Snotlout Statue quest thing.
SO EXCITED!!! SO EXCITED!!!!
SO EXCITED!!!! :D :D
Can't wait to be in first fight :D :D
A very happy Smiley!!!
Thank you SoD team :D :D :D
Some feedback, I have only done it once so it's liable to change.
Respawning with no shots needs to happen, it is basically a cheat for dragons with lots of ammo. Also there is not much strategy going on, I would suggest you work on different ways to be more effective I'll give you a few ideas on that.
Skrill lightning, hitting the mast should give bonus damage for Skrills.
Boulder class dragons should be able to hit mountain sides and causes rocks to fall on ships, deals extra damage but can only happen at certain spots depending on where the ship is.
Dragons that shoot fire should get bonus damage from hitting weak points, like barrels of fire tar or unprotected wooden spots.
Add many more possible targets that you have to choose from, and have the ability to select the correct on with the mouse.
Some target points have high armor, and some will cause you to change it to that target. Doing less damage.
Ice dragons can slow down the boat and increase the time if they shoot the water around the boat, but causes no damage.
Fire dragons can shoot the water and cause less shots being fire from the boat by making lots of steam for covering allies.
I think having support ships surrounding the main boat will be an interesting strategic twist. Whispering Deaths with Outcast riders can spawn and combat the players, destroying the support ships will cause the Whispering deaths to not respawn. I think if we can use some of the defenses that would be great, having two players control a catapult and deal extra damage when the enemy boat is in range.
So lots of feedback, but I have to play some more to give more. A training mode would be nice, so you can practice when you need to.
Also another idea, fire barrels can be carried by dragons and dropped onto enemy ships. This will give something for fast dragons with not much fire power to do.
So refilling your shots at the battle camps is actually fine, now that I understand you don't get full refill from just getting knocked out.
Oh and switching dragons is bugged for me, I can only do it in the stables.
There is too much waiting, also it needs to be the same time for all the servers. Or it is just confusing, and you can miss it just by changing a server at the wrong time.
Dio, I really love your ideas for all the different dragon classes. Would give players a neat opportunity to work together, as well. I haven't tried battle yet, but hopefully they will implement this. *u*
How do u get it
Im on pc and I dont have it
It is a random event, it happens in the training grounds. All you have to be is there.
I'm on mobile and no battle preview! :(
Also that is an Outcast Ship, not Berserker.
Thanks for changing that!
I noticed it too.
Tracking! OMG I am so glad this update is here! I have not had the chance to go in game yet since I have classes right now, but in a few short hours I will be home and waiting to be called upon to defeat the Berserkers!
Glad it is finally here, but do the clans benefit at all from one of your members winning this event with others from other clans or is just an individual benefit?
Idea for the future- how about a spot on the clan boards for battle trophies. So if a member is part of a win the clan can earn trophies which is clan points.
I love the update. Gives us something to do instead of constant eel roasting or racing if we've finished all quests. Even though Ive not slept yet, I still enoyed that bout with the ship. Haha! Even though we lost, its still nice to get the reward without a win. Two thumbs up guys! ;)
It still isn't out for the downloaded version
it is, we just battled with some clan mates and won XD
what version is it out for?
it said i got 200 gems but it didnt give me any. please fix this.
