After all, as i real life, fights can be unbalanced. In history there are many examples of how larger and better trained armies utterly destroyed other cultures. Life is not fair so the number should count, as in real life. I started the event in another husker army, but after the first day, when i realized that Marietta has the first chance in winning the event, i switched sides. Yes, i lost some time and some victory, but since i joined early the winning camp, that means that i should have 100 less victories, so i think it worth it.

About the EP... hmm, i dont know what to say, i never watched my EP. What happens if someone attack you and you have no EP? Or in this situation you could not be attacked?

The comparison with real life is not valid. The game has absolutely nothing to do with real life!! Not to mention that, in real life, it is what it is. You don't have the option to change to a different life just because the one you are living is not fair. If a game is not capable of keeping balance, it will simply lose players.

Regarding the "invulnerability" when you have 0 EP, you are raising a good point. I see only 3 possible options:
- The one you mentioned.
- You have no chance to win, being "granted" an automatic loss.
- It is a regular attack and you get a huge advantage over those who saved some EPs.

Sadly, all three options make no sense.

The last round of this event was a mess with people transfering from huckster to huckster depending on who was winning. A huckster would go from first to last overnight and then back to first the next day.
It made this whole even a huge wildcard. The winning huckster the day before the evet closes is guaranteed to come in last when everbody jumps ship before the cutoff.
Is anything being done about this? the teams should be fixed from the start and we should fight it out.

EDIT: I might be thinking of the Map event..... err sorry.

If I remember the last Huckster event correctly, your personal Wins are set to zero if you switch, but nothing happens with the team Wins.

The problem with the Map event was that you lost some of your own map pieces, and then your Team lost all of your map pieces.

From the description of the Huckster's war (emphasis mine):
"The combat goes by the normal rules of dueling, you can complete quests, you can drag people to the torture chamber. But the SE reward is not based on your opponent's SE, you always get a fix amount, depending on the target's level, which he/she does not lose (like energy harness). Some effects don't work (like soul-draining, scarab, punisher items). These duels do not count towards normal clan wars. If you have energy harness, you get proportionally more SE. Diamond clan members also get some more SE than others. No other modifiers apply."

Are punisher items the same as items that increases your SE gained from duels (like Vampire Focus)?

Punisher items are the ones, that make you lose AP when you attack someone equipped with it.

Ok, thanks.

So does items that increases SE gain from duels work in the event?

Formulas from the previous event:

SE: ( level * 39,67 ) * (0,5 + EH * 0,015). If the winner is member of the diamond clan, he/she gets +5% bonus
XP: (2+level)*0,273.

So I assume Vampire Focus will only work if you have the AA skill.

Miklos, can you pls confirm?

Thanks,
Cruel.

So - the formula will be the same like last time?
That means, XP from attacks ONLY depends on level, not EH or DD or anything else?

Just to be sure before some uncontrolled EH/DD switching

Actually, if the formula is the same as last time it does depend on level and EH (see the formula above).

does the 100% infection bonus count as well? seeing as how 0% infection people can get +5 to EH.

To attack the new crystal clan do I need to enable "I want to attack the Crystal Horde when possible and it's okay if they attack me as well"?
Is there a way to separate the two things? That is, the usual crystal clan and the "new" one?

They are not "new Clans" just crystal characters to make sure everyone gets target.

I'm at lvl13 on W2 and there's ONLY ONE lvl15 player on my huckster-duel list (and his clone of course). It means 2 wins/8 hours, maximum 6wins/day (probably just 4 because I'm not an always-online robot). I would like 400 at the end, but in this way it will be very hard to collect 100. Thinking about forget this event

I was hunting much to collect 300+ eventpoints for a nice reward and now I won't have anything.

I think I might bring up some complaints as well. I actually thought, there will be multiple clones of the same people, so there is enough targets for all of us. But now, on World 2 in the very top level area, there is so little to attack that its terribly bad event for me.

I even tried to choose different teams, but either way, I have MUCH less targets than when there was no event at all, is it normal? I mean, I can only attack 4 targets (besides these 4, there is 7 other targets which are unfortunately too strong for me).

Anyway, I know its partially because Im too weak to attack most of the players, but having only 4 targets is ridiculous - I thought you are going to spawn PLENTY of new targets, but there is even less than before for me. Before event, I had around 8-10 targets (people + clones), and I acually expected there will be much MORE in this event.

Please look into it, many thanks.
