Evony Language Thread & Scout Changes

Sunday, August 16th, 2009

Interestingly enough, the Evony forum has opened two beta language threads for players who do not speak the primary language (English). This means that there will now be more aid for those who speak French and Spanish (I’m sure more will be added as time continues).

Spanish Thread
French Thread

Evony is now more intent on the Scout Changes, and look to implement it a little later on:

“To help balance the upcoming change that will make it more difficult for players to gain information on other player’s cities, we are planning to make a change to scouting that will reduce one of the random elements that can hurt scout chances.

Currently, there is a small chance that scouts will fight all of the cities defenders on scouting missions, instead of just their scouts. We plan to change this, so that scouts will only fight other scouts on these missions. This will make scouting missions more likely to succeed and reduce what has been a source of frustration for some players.

We want scouts to be useful tools for gathering information and preventing other players from gathering information. We think this change is right in line with this philosophy.”

Evony Medals

Sunday, May 17th, 2009

May 17th, 2009:

As of the date above, I will summarize, describe, and elaborate on the medals in Evony.

Firstly:

Medal drops have been updated. The previous medal drops of basically zero have now been changed to a higher drop rate. The medals are worth more with increasing value based on how much loyalty the medal will give to a hero, how easy it is to obtain the medal, and what promotion you need the medal for.

The medal rankings, from lowest to highest / easiest to hardest:

Cross Medal
Rose Medal
Lion Medal
Honor Medal
Courage Medal
Wisdom Medal
Freedom Medal
Justice Medal
Nation Medal

Secondly:

If you are trying to get a lower level medal, like a Lion Medal, then you will need to attack lower level valleys and barbarian cities, such as levels 1-3. If you are trying to get a higher level medal, like a Freedom Medal, you will need to attack higher level valleys and cities, such as levels 6-9.

Thirdly:

The type of valley does not matter. If you attack a level 2 lake, you have the same chances as obtaining a medal as attacking a level 2 flatland. The medal quest information has not been updated. Although the quest still says that you have a higher chance of getting a medal from a certain valley, I repeat, it does not matter.

Fourthly:

Scout Spamming is not a very effective way of obtaining medals now. The first reason is because you get negative prestige for scout spamming. The second reason is because a main factor in getting medals is how much the valley has regenerated its troops. If you attack an empty valley, your chances of winning a medal are next to zero. If you let the troops completely regenerate within the valley, you have a much higher chance of getting a medal.

That’s the story everybody. I hope this helped you be more informed on the current medal happenings. Good luck on getting your medals and getting promoted!
