Brave the freezing gales of the Atlas Frostwreath Season!

War Dragons - Atlas Frostwreath Season

Ready yourselves for a new season in the lands of Atlas​!

 

The current Atlas Withermoon Season will be ending on December 18th before the Atlas Frostwreath Season arrives on Thursday, December 19th! Teamwork will be of utmost importance as always, so gather the troops and set to the skies for battle! 

 

This season brings gameplay balance changes to Atlas as well! Be sure to read about the changes near the end of this post.

 

The Atlas Withermoon Season ends on December 18, 2019 at 2pm PT. All prizes must be claimed by then, as Atlas Withermoon Badges will not be usable in future seasons.

 


ATLAS MAINTENANCE

 

There will be a small period of time where the event page will be down in Atlas to prep for the Frostwreath Season’s launch on Thursday, December 19th. Additionally, players will need to close and reopen atlas for some of the gameplay changes to take effect when the season launches.

Anja, the Stygian Tracker

Offensive

Attuned to the blistering cold of the Stygian Wastes, Anja, the Stygian Tracker enters the battle for Atlas this season. Environments that would bring the most hardened riders to bear are but a spring day to her. Beware, for when paired with the right dragon, she becomes a force of nature to be reckoned with. Obtain her this season with Blue Rider Shards from this Season’s Rider branch.

    • Players can claim Anja’s Tier 2, Tier 3, and animated portrait in either of the Mythic Gear branches

 

CASTLE OWNERSHIP-BASED LEADERBOARD

 

Rounds and Scoring

  • The entire Atlas Frostwreath Season will be made up of two-week rounds.

  • At the end of each two-week round, the Leaderboard will update with Victory Points earned by each team based on the top 20 most valuable castles they own at that time.

Victory Points

  • At the start of each two-week round, each castle will start with some Victory Points based on region/castle level.

    • Higher level castles are worth more Victory Points.

  • Every time that castle is conquered during the round, its current Victory Point value is reduced by 10% i.e. 100, 90, 81, 73, 66, 59, 53, etc.

    • Defending your castles from conquerors is the best way to earn the most Victory Points for castles you own at the end of each round.

    • Alternatively, seek out and conquer the castles of teams that threaten your team’s rank to reduce their Victory Point potential.

  • A castle’s Victory Point value will not recover until it resets to full at the start of each two-week round.

  • A castle’s Victory Point value is visible to all Atlas players (not hidden by Fog of War).

Example: Castle X, owned by Team A, is worth 50,000 VP at the beginning of Round 1. It is conquered by Team B, and then conquered back by Team A. Round 1 ends and Team A earns 40,500 VP for this castle. Once Round 2 begins, Castle X returns to being worth 50,000 VP.

 

Tiebreakers

In case of a tie, all tied teams get the best prize in that range.  For example, if prizes are 500, 400, 300, 200, and 100 and the top scores are 1000, 1000, 800, 800, 500.  First and second teams would get 500, third and fourth teams would get 3rd and 300, and fifth team would get 100.
