It's time for another Grab Bag!


We get a lot of feedback and suggestions sent in through the Grab Bag form which doesn't go to our devs but to me, and while they are passed on, please do make sure you're sending the right things to the right place :) The love letters are fine though, you can keep sending me those.


You can submit any questions relating to current development plans, to request clarification on basic game mechanic questions, or questions on community issues through the Grab Bag Submission form. For any other feedback or suggestions please use our feedback form :)

Our January newsletter will be sent out later today, so make sure you are signed up!

Now, on to this week's questions!

Dynamic Population Bonuses Return

Posted by John Thornhill | 2020 Jan 14 15:12 -0500 GMT
Based on feedback we've received since the 1.126 patch, the Dynamic Population Bonus feature is active once again!

As a refresher, here's how the system works:


Dynamic Population Bonus


  • This system will reward underpopulated realms with bonus realm points to help offset and stabilize population imbalances.
  • The current bonus status will be displayed to players when viewing the realm selection screen and in-game on the /realmwar 'bonuses' window.

 
  • The dynamic population bonus is re-calculated every 15 minutes and only calculates based on the number of players within the New Frontiers region.
  • The bonus amounts are as follows:
    • 81-90% population of most populated realm: +10% RPs
    • 71-80% population of most populated realm: +25% RPs
    • 61-70% population of most populated realm: +40% RPs
    • 51-60% population of most populated realm: +55% RPs
    • 41-50% population of most populated realm: +70% RPs
    • 31-40% population of most populated realm: +85% RPs
    • 0-30% population of the most populated realm: +100% RPs
  • These bonuses will stack with all other bonuses!
