With the Famine Scourge Event drawing to a close this weekend, there are more ties appearing on the Leaderboard than originally anticipated. We have also been reading over player feedback with questions about the number of ties.
The dev team wants players to feel properly rewarded for the level of effort put forth in this challenge. Therefore, we will be updating the process in how the final Leaderboard is decided and the delivery of Rank Rewards.
- As a reminder, there will be a delay between when the event ends and when Rank Rewards are delivered, likely 2-3 days
- Players that are tied for the last slot in a Reward Tier will receive rewards as though they finished in that slot. For example, a player with a run score that ties with the score currently showing at Rank 50 will be sent rewards for Rank 1-50, even if their current Leaderboard standing shows them at a lower Rank.
This solution is being used exclusively for this first run of the Famine Scourge Event and not necessarily any other Scourge Events. The dev team is going to work on more intricate solutions to help ensure that there are significantly fewer ties going forward in other Scourge Events.
As always, we greatly appreciate your feedback, and good luck getting those high scores!
