What gives ?!?

Postby Da Grud » Fri Nov 07, 2014 8:01 am

What gives?!?

We were told that the new tournament payout for this (and all future) tournament would be as follows...

Subject: Tournament Payouts
DKDev_Chris wrote:As promised, here are the new Tournament rewards with update 4.2. Again, this does not include Blitz Tournament rewards, but rather the “normal” Tournaments that occur every other week.

Elite bracket:
1st: 15,000 Gems / 2,000 Dreadstones
2nd: 10,000 Gems / 1,600 Dreadstones
3rd: 5,000 Gems / 1,300 Dreadstones
4-10th: 500 Gems / 1,000 Dreadstones
11-20th: 250 Gems / 750 Dreadstones
21-25th: 100 Gems / 400 Dreadstones

Normal brackets:
1st: 5,000 Gems / 600 Dreadstones
2nd: 3,500 Gems / 480 Dreadstones
3rd: 2,000 Gems / 390 Dreadstones
4-10th: 150 Gems / 300 Dreadstones
11-25th: 100 Gems / 225 Dreadstones
26-40th: 50 Gems / 150 Dreadstones

Lottery: 5,000 Gems / 1,250 Dreadstones


However this is the reward structure the actual game shows...

Is this a bug in game or did you guys just flat out LIE to us?!?

Hasn't the game shown the wrong payouts for a couple of tournaments by now? The Blitz only showed payouts for #1-5 but everyone up to 40th got their purple shinies as advertised.

Please accept the apologies of this unworthy Keeper for being a bit slow.

Is the confusion regarding positions 4, 5 and 6 in the screenshot or am I missing something?

Yes, starting at 5th place and lower the rewards are different than we were told.

check out the details tap in the tournament league table. it shows higher rewards from place 5-40.

maybe because there are less brackets which may result in less $$$$ and DS is such super rare and precious ore EA had to reduce the payout :roll:

I am more inclined to believe the in-game payouts than what Chris wrote. He also got it wrong for Blitz #1 where he underestimated the Dreadstone payout for 2nd place which he stated was 250, but I got 275 as this is what was quoted in-game. I really don't know where Chris got these payout numbers from, but they certainly don't match with what they put in-game. He needs to match and confirm before posting...

I'm inclined to think the results screen shows the wrong awards. The tournament details screen shows the same payouts that Chris shared with us...

So that's two sources showing the above payouts and only one showing the payouts on the results screen. Either way it is obviously just another bug in this game. I really thing the developers need to change exterminators. Maybe they should call Terminex.

You're right Grud... thanks for the screenshots. I believe the issue stems from the fact that the results screen doesn't recognise that category 4, 5 and 6 of the payouts are for multiple places.

For example, the category 4 payout of 1,000 dreadstones and 500 gems are for places 4th-10th, but it seems that the payouts in the results screen weren't designed for multiple placings, so instead 4th place displays the payout for 4th-10th, 5th displays the payout for 11-20th/25th and finally 6th place displays the payout for the remainder in each bracket.

Hopefully, the developers will sort that display bug soon to stop the confusion, but I won't hold my breath :lol:
