    Default November Update - Dev Diary!

    Hello Growtopians!

    Wow! That was a ghoulishly good holiday, wasn’t it? Now that October has come to a suitably spooky end, it’s time we started celebrating something much chillier, which is strange, because things are also about to heat up with… Winter Clash!

    So, our second Clash begins! You’ll probably notice a few changes right off the bat, but before we get into those, I’d like to walk you through what we learned from the Summer Clash. First, we’ve mentioned it before, but it bears repeating: Summer Clash was a success. Overall feedback was positive, you guys were very engaged, and lots of prizes were awarded. More importantly, you didn’t burn yourselves out like you did with our first attempt at events, yet simply having a lot of gems didn't guarantee a win, either - you had to work at it and be smart. The variety of anomalizers allowed for victory to be achieved through a diversity of approaches that mixed time and gems – and for those who leaned on the latter, most of those gems were earned through farming. In short, the anomalizer system worked. Hooray!

    What didn’t work? Well, it went on a little too long – you guys started getting a bit less excited by the time Month 4 rolled around, so for our first change, we’ve decided to make Winter Clash last for 3 months, instead (and when Summer Clash eventually returns, it’ll be 3 months, too). This also means it’ll have one prize branch fewer, for 4 branches, total: two to be released this month, one in December, and the Legendary Branch in January. This will have the added benefit of making all prizes more desirable, as they won’t be available for quite so long now! We also know that you guys wanted us to add more event variety, so that’s exactly what we did, and we’ll be kicking things off with our first new event: Cooking Conquerors!

    Finally, we’ve almost completely revamped ALL personal and guild rewards, with brand-new prizes at every tier. Why the “almost”? Well, we decided to leave the Extract-o-Snap and Surgical Tool Bag in the personal reward tables, but other than those… it’s a whole new world, folks! Also, there are NO overlaps between the personal and guild prizes, so their values should be less subjective and more predictable now, too. Happy hunting!

    As always, we absolutely want to hear your thoughts – is this winterized version of our beloved Summer Clash even better? Worse? The same? Let us know, and above all else… get ready to anomalize!
