Algalon's Anniversary: perks and a quick peek.
Greetings, Citizens of Dalaran,
As you probably know, even though Dalaran as a server is about to be 9 years old, Algalon realm alone has surpassed the 8 years milestone!
Thank you everyone for your constant support and loyalty, we truly hope you enjoy playing in this Home and we want to show you some gratefulness back; we have in store a very incredible and game-changing announcement, which idea has been developed and thoroughly designed for a very long time in order to make reality a unique and original concept. The moment to show you what we have been working on is near, stay tuned because we plan to explain everything we have in store in about ~1 month and a half.
Aside from this, you deserve some immediate rewards. But before revealing them, there are a couple of things we want to mention:
As always, we have had many interesting suggestions from the player base, but there is one that has been discussed on the forums about the Neutral Goblin Auction House, so we think it is time to create a general poll about it. Expect a poll link during the upcoming days.
We would like to encourage and help those constant or "fixed" weekly runs that some guilds or individuals tend to host in order to get some nice gear, help others attune, or just for fun. Therefore, we think it could be beneficial if we open a forum post where the ones organizing or leading the runs can post their information. The confirmed runs will be broadcasted in-game randomly (blue letters) during the week, so everyone is well aware. Hopefully, this will help a bit.
Now, let's take a look at a few rewards or perks that you will be able to enjoy for a limited time (until the 26th of April):
Anniversary gift box
Every account will have the option to open a gift reward on our website, it can contain vote points, donation points and an extra something. In order to do so, visit this page and just claim your reward.
For the whole duration of this event, there will be a Lottery happening on Wednesdays and Sundays. It will consist of picking 2 random players from each faction who have been online since the last lottery, and it will be announced on Lottery day at 21:00 ST (this player doesn't need to be online). There are no actual "tickets" for this lottery, however, the system will take into consideration the activity. A total of 4 players will be selected, 2 by participating in PvE and another 2 by participating in PvP. The winner will be able to choose one item from our shop (any).
Each lottery day will take into account all the activity data since the previous lottery. For example, this means that, if you played on Friday, but you could not log on Saturday/Sunday, you will still be eligible to win the Sunday's lottery as your name will be between the participants. However, the more you play, the more chances to be the winner.
If anyone wishes to generate activity with alts, they are welcome to do so, if your alt is picked by the lottery system, you will still be able to send the prize to any of your characters. A server message will announce the winners each Wednesday and Sunday at 21:00 ST. We will contact the winners, so they can decide which item they do want from our shop.
The first lottery day will be the next Wednesday 30th of March, and the system is already up since today, therefore you can start already increasing your chances.
These two are the areas you can participate in order to increase your chance to be the winner:
Donations and Shop
We have increased a bit more the chance for certain mounts to drop, it was done during the last event but it looks like it wasn't enough. So here you have the list with the mounts that have received an increase to their drop chance:
Everything mentioned will be active for 1 month, and it will end the 26th of April.
As a side note, after the next Faction Tournament reset the Friday 1st of April, Battlegrounds will start counting 3 points towards the overall score, instead of the current 5.
Last but not least; as mentioned at the beginning of this post, we have things in the oven almost ready to go. Therefore, we are going to open the recruitment for developers. We are also in need of a person with higher-level skills in video production and editing.
We are going to post detailed information about this, but if you already have decided you wish to apply or know someone whose profile would fit, please contact us: [email protected]
We really hope you have a good time during these celebrations.
Thank you everyone for your support!
