View Full Version : Gold and Crimson - Get Gold Idols and Sacrificial Hearts from Sacrifices!



Leviathan

Gold Idols and Sacrificial Hearts are possible rewards from sacrifice for a limited time!

From now until July 26th, 5 PM PT, all tiers have a chance of giving you a Gold and Crimson reward (in place of a normal sacrifice reward). A Gold and Crimson reward is either a Gold Idol character (sells for Gold) or a Sacrificial Heart character (has a high essence value for sacrificing). This means that every sacrifice has a higher chance of getting more rewards thatíll let you sacrifice even more, and can get you huge piles of Gold from selling Gold Idols while you do that!

The rarities and quantities of the Gold and Crimson characters vary depending on the kind of sacrifice they are from:


Getting a Tier I, Tier II, or Tier III sacrifice can reward one of the 1★ Gold and Crimson characters as a sacrifice reward
Getting a Tier IV or Tier V sacrifice can drop can reward two 3★ Gold and Crimson characters as a sacrifice reward (up to 4 characters for the minimum essence for those tiers)
Getting a Tier VI sacrifice has a chance of rewarding three 5★ Gold and Crimson characters as a sacrifice reward (up to 9 characters for the minimum essence for that tier)
Getting a Tier VII sacrifice has a chance of rewarding five 5★ Gold and Crimson characters as a sacrifice reward (up to 15 characters for the minimum essence for that tier)
Getting a Vortex guarantees 3 Magnificent Gold Idols, 3 Ultimate Sacrificial Hearts, and 5 Skill Shards, in addition to normal Vortex rewards!


For example, getting a Tier VI sacrifice normally grants 3 sacrifice rewards. However, any of those sacrifice rewards could be a Gold and Crimson event reward, and each Gold and Crimson reward earned from that tier will reward you with 3 of the featured characters (which could be something like ď5★ Magnificent Gold Idol + 5★ Magnificent Gold Idol + 5★ Ultimate Sacrificial HeartĒ as one of the three sacrifice rewards).

Additionally, for the duration of the event, there are also event challenges based around getting to certain sacrifice tiers and sacrificing for certain amounts of total essence. Meet the requirements to earn the following:


Earn up to 100 Cyborg Eddie Fragments! Collect these fragments from this and other events to get a soul that will guarantee you the 5★ Cyborg Eddie!
Earn up to 50 Nebu Fragments! Collect these fragments from this and other events to purchase a God of Powerslave of your choice!

So many Hearts. Soooo many! Was 4 chars over limit, Sacrificed 7 to get a max sacrifice and in the process filled the vortex. Ended up with 27 chars over. Madness!

Shouldnít have done all my Sacrificing before this event started. Thought you wouldn't have been so kind to us to do the Sacrifice event while the increased chances was on. My mistake there. Would have been able to do all those achievements straight away and get the Nabu Fragments, which is all Iíd want. Ah well.

Cefiar
07-20-2018, 12:46 AM
This is totally mad.

I started out 4 chars over the limit. with 7 5* hearts I hit a Tier VI sacrifice each time. About 3 of these fill the Vortex. I haven't left the sacrifice pool and I've now over by 123!

I've filled the vortex 5 times now, and I suspect it'll be a LONG time before this ends.

I can't play the game because I keep getting so many 5* hearts. :)

Best event ever.

Cefiar
07-20-2018, 12:56 AM
I just got out of sacrifice and sold 157x 5* gold idols. And I still have Hearts up the wazoo. I don't think I'll be worried about gold for a while!

And Skill shards? I'm nearly up to 100.

God knows how many souls to redeem I've picked up.

Have I got one tell of a data sheet for you all:

So I've had a month of prep and I had over 40 4 or 5* dupes I was willing to sacrifice, so I started out big.... And ended big..

One Ultimate sacrifice and..... Well let's just say enough Exalted sacrifices to make 12 ring fills.

187.73 million gold
214 skill shards
34 Legendary Souls
227 Rare G/A Souls
223 Rare Souls

Please don't ask how many hearts I got, because they just....kept....coming.... Some in forms of this:
4758

Right around now I was actually hoping for it to end.


Guys the event might be bugged. If it is, this is the best event bug in the history of event bugs.

I'm on Vortex spin #15 and there's no end in sight.

Cefiar
07-20-2018, 01:21 AM
I sold all my Gold Idols and used a tiny fraction of that to push me to 300 soul slots.

I could then get out and play the rest of the game.

I think I've hit vortex fill 15 times or so at least. Possibly more.

I have SO MANY souls in the Book of Souls at the moment.

20x 99 common souls (had these at the start), 31 Legendary Souls, 4x 99 Rare Gun/Assassin Souls, 2x 99 Rare Souls), a few other souls, and I still have buckets to sacrifice yet.

Something I've noticed: I haven't been getting the Alchemist fragments.

It's been removed from the Rewards list. Strange. Is this an event worth sacrificing for? I have got a few characters ready to sacrifice.

Fudjo
07-20-2018, 01:30 AM
19 Vortex spins and I'm still not done. Finally got the character count down low enough that I can play the game again. Still need to cash in:

61 Legendary Souls
449 G/A Souls
411 Rare Souls

Well if that was intentional.. Thank you NF.

Now.. every Eddie.. all fully skill sharded (and enough skill shards left over for a couple other character and 20+ in reserve still :) Also up 60+million gold, and have dozens of Legendary and Rare souls.

And I was in about 40 minutes after the rollover so I lost a good bit of time to benefit.

Hrm, I think there is something wrong now. There's no "Sacrifice" button in "My Team". Oops!

I'm 23 chars over my limit, so..... ??

Edit: Was a bunch of 3* chars, so I just sold 'em.

Sacrifice button disabled. So we better not be getting a rollback. You didnt roll back Primordials so you better suck it up. I got screwed last time and now this is karma cause all these souls are coming directly out of your pockets.

I managed to hit an Exalted Sacrifice through Sacrificing Common Souls and the Rare Souls I got through then and Iím glad I did. Since then itís been crazy! That Exatled Sacrifice gave me 9 5* Hearts with was enough for another Exatled and since then itís been crazy. So many 5* Hearts and Gold (57 gold) and so many Exatled Sacrifices just from heart.

No idea how many Souls and Skill Shards I have now. But still more Hearts to Sacrifice when it comes back. If I still have them when it does.

Glad I was able to cash in on their cock ip again. Dread to think how much Iíd have if ai hadnítndone all that Sacrificing the other day. Probably something crazy like Amarthir has.

Over 300 rare souls! 187m gold! Okay now I'm going to complain!!! :rolleyes:

Great job forum members! I made a small amount of gold got two ring fills. Over 70 rare souls and 80 G/A's. I'm good.

Oh god 100% agreed lmao. I mean, they didn't roll back when Primordial issue was a thing.


Cashed in all my souls, pretty sure I pulled almost every character ever. I also expanded my character limit to 300 (hell yeah) I'll make another thread about who I came out with. Still missing poor Visions Eddie of all things :(

Yup
07-20-2018, 01:55 AM
I also expanded my character limit

Yeah I burned off a good 10-15 Million Gold adding slots because I HAD to :)

Any timeframes for this, Leviathan? I have 14 characters over the limit and cannot play the game til I sacrifice them. Would be nice if in the process of turning off the sacrifice button, you suspended the inability to play due to character overages. At least let us be able to play on while you fix this.

Yup

Buy more character slots. You should have the gold for it if you sell off golden idols you may have gotten.

New speed record. I was actually just a few scarifices away from vortex fill when event started so the hearts started fast. I did notice getting way more hearts for VI than VII or vortex fill.

BEST EVENT EVER!

Thanks HuckFinn. I'm in the sacrifice chamber. Let's hopebtje rewards are still there . Will only do small sacrifices til I see an idol or a heart then I'll try the big guns in case the event itself is on hold and not just the button.

Thanks, Stormseye! I did buy some more slots even though I didn't want to. I had just made my first sacrifice when they pulled the sacrifice plug so I didn't get the big gold or essence booms like other players got.

07-20-2018, 03:05 AM
Been playing since day one and the short hours of this event were absolutely the best ever!!! I was hoping it wasn't a bug but must have had 15 vortex fills!!! I wasn't even going to complain about no Alchemist frags dropping. I had well over 200 Rare G/A souls and had high hopes of Beast Eddie, but even when that didn't happen, I wasn't all that disappointed. This Bug / Event needs to happen more often. I'd start spending money again if this was a possibility! So much fun while it lasted!!!

FarmerEddie
07-20-2018, 03:06 AM
Hehehe I agree that they better not roll back the rewards. It's be game over for me considering some bugs are still around since day 1 and the "Good" bugs seem to get eradicated as soon as they pop up. A bit of generosity for us old timers wouldnt hurt once in a while NF.

Zerynx
07-20-2018, 03:07 AM
Came on here to see why I can't participate in the Sacrifice event and I see this, then I see people preemptively complaining about rolling back.

I'll say it, as unpopular as it might be; THEY SHOULD ROLL IT BACK!!!

Why should you guys get 18 vortex fills and I get 150 ironite? That's fucking bull shit too!! I'm sorry I can't play this 24/7. Cool for you dudes you can, but the event started at 7pm for me. That's family time. Now, around 10p, I come back around and find I missed this? WTF?

Can't say I'm in a good mood cuz I got two dupe Liliths from that last event, now fucking this. Fuck man.....

These idiots have no clue what they are doing and just a few lucky ones got to take advantage of it!!!
Ofc there will be no rollback and it will all be swept under the carpet by giving us some 150 ironite.
Am i pissed of that i had to sleep?! Fuck yes! stupid,stupid,stupid me!

I remember there was an event where I was able to continuously buy Legendary souls. As in endlessly. A number of us had the bug...

It was rolled back.

Don’t get your hopes up here. I can’t see them doing anything but resetting this whole thing to ground zero.

07-20-2018, 03:43 AM
Well it lasted an hour at most. It would be a shitty thing for them to roll it back.

Two more thoughts then I'm walking away from the forums for tonight:

1 - I empathize with you guys who got lucky with the bug. I honestly do. Not your fault; yet, you had to know something was wrong.

2 - The blow back that will happen when Europe wakes up will be pretty intense. I mean, this is an English band on a European tour. The glitch happened in the middle of their night.

Yup
07-20-2018, 04:05 AM
Do you also bitch that lottery winners should return the money because you didn't win the lottery as well?

We all miss out on things from time to time. i didn't get 6 sets of Primordial talismans during that sac event but they didn't roll back all those extra talismans.

Stranger
07-20-2018, 04:41 AM
Yup, it's not lotery. In lotery all have the same chance. But we Europians slept well while this bug happened. NF, will we here in Europe get any compensation? ;)

ericgallucci
07-20-2018, 04:47 AM
There are as no glitch, just they clearly didnít think it through. It says a tier 6 can give up to 9 characters. Iím sure they didnít think about causing a never ending series of tier 6 sacrifices if someone kept getting nine hearts over and over a gain.

Mizrael
07-20-2018, 04:49 AM
I definitely want my account to be rolled back!

I got into the pit through the event tab, but the sacrifice rewards are off. no alchemist shards and for few sacrifices all iíve got was skill shards and no idols/hearts.

hope they can roll it back before the double rare soul chance is gone...

I lost some alchemist fragments from my first vortex. It was almost ready in prep for the event. I earned a second vortex from spending over 1500 normal souls, and a bastion and nomad, and about 25 saved 4 stars. No idols or hearts dropped for second vortex or for 4 exalted and 4 grand. Also was shorted 200 frontier coins. Should have 300.

07-20-2018, 05:44 AM
For me 1100+ normal souls sacrificed got me around another 30 rare souls and 1/3 of the way round the vortex, crap loads of sot and sow, I sacrificed some 70 G/A rare souls, 100 rare souls, 2 x legendary souls the vortex starting from near zero has gone round twice already is just a hair of triggering a third time, I've had 20 skill shards a heap of sacrificial hearts and gold idols of varying worth, this punched up my gold stash by about 5 million, It rained Navigator Eddies and Nomads 2 x toons 3 months ago I had never had.
I got a myriad of 5*eddies all dupes the only thing I collected that was new was Hallowed Eddie and a Desert Marauder Gunner.
Still I am very pleased with this sac event, I was hoping for Clansman or Beast Eddie or POM but still happy, I've sharded up and finished off a few Eddies and toons and still have a stack for a future toon.

I have a new appreciation for just how "rare" they mean by rare soul of any class.... Thanks LOTB!

This is my first posting in the forum, so hello everybody!

I really only play this game because of Iron Maiden, I don't care that much about all the bugs! You can imagine how infuriated I am to make the effort to actually write on this board!
Playing today while drinking my morning coffee, excited that the sacrifice event is finally on and I see no sacrifice button. Ok, funny joke I think. Then I see I can access the vortex from achievements tab, so I go and sacrifice almost everything and put all the stacked souls I have in the books of souls and then do some more sacrificing. Since I am still sleepy and I get some fragments as rewards I think that that is all one is gonna get.
Untill I got here and what do I see?!
I am ok with players benefiting from this bug, what is not alright that I don't have the rewards the should have been rewarded to me like idols/hearts and alchemist fragments for all the sacrifices.

There is a total screw up as there was no in-game message and 150 ironite are no compensation for that, developers will need to think of something else for players with my case!

There's one problem with that Leviathan I managed to get into sacrifice through a back door unaware there had been an issue (event) and didn't get rewarded any of the sacrificial hearts or gold idols for a months worth of saving souls though I did get a few goodies as mentioned above...

This is my first posting in the forum, so hello everybody!

I really only play this game because of Iron Maiden, I don't care that much about all the bugs! You can imagine how infuriated I am to make the effort to actually write on this board!
Playing today while drinking my morning coffee, excited that the sacrifice event is finally on and I see no sacrifice button. Ok, funny joke I think. Then I see I can access the vortex from achievements tab, so I go and sacrifice almost everything and put all the stacked souls I have in the books of souls and then do some more sacrificing. Since I am still sleepy and I get some fragments as rewards I think that that is all one is gonna get.
Untill I got here and what do I see?!
I am ok with players benefiting from this bug, what is not alright that I don't have the rewards the should have been rewarded to me like idols/hearts and alchemist fragments for all the sacrifices.

There is a total screw up as there was no in-game message and 150 ironite are no compensation for that, developers will need to think of something else for players with my case!

I have actually the same problem. I saved a long time for this event and threw in a couple of 5 stars this morning. The 2 Problems i have - i ended up only 1000 essence before an ultimate sacrifice, which i didnt realize, as the number VII was not on the board and it thought it was the highest level already. Also i did not get any Hearts or Idols. I would love to take back that sacrifice if possible.

This should also be one of my first posts here but it is really weak to treat players like that in a game that is quite expensive relating the shop items to be bought.

Yup, it's not lotery. In lotery all have the same chance. But we Europians slept well while this bug happened. NF, will we here in Europe get any compensation? ;)

The attitude of "Others got reward, I didn't, ... take theirs away!" Is what I was referring to. It's malicious toward PLAYERS and self-serving and ultimately whining about missing out. I've missed out on PLENTY that europeans get..... so that's a very poor excuse.

I cannot blame ppl for defending their newly obtained stuff, but missing out on this bug ruins the competitive level of this game, especially with content like Gauntlet coming up, where players who participated in the bug will be months ahead of others due to massively increased amount of characters, skills shards and gold

Yeah, I think that might be a problem. I have no problem with people keeping their stuff, but in no way you can call it a level playing field that way - especially with the Gauntlet coming up. It‘s one thing to get three or four additional talisman sets that can only be used on a couple of chars and get nerfed anyway. But to be able to max out 20 characters for free is another one.

(Personally, I did not exploit any of these bugs - of course for the reason that I haven‘t had the chance ;))

Hello,

Thank you so much for your patience while we worked. Earlier this evening, an unforeseen issue emerged that required us to temporarily disable the Sacrifice feature.

We have successfully resolved this issue. The Sacrifice feature is now available, and the Gold and Crimson Sacrifice event is active once again! You can get all the event details in the Legacy of the Beast newsfeed.

Best regards,

Michelle

So basically a polite FU dear customer. your fault that you used a feature which wasnít working properly and didnít receive any event characters nor alchemist shards for sacrificing your whole arsenal of maxed characters, which you have been saving for months...
Anyone else upset about entering the sacrifice while it was screwed? ...pants down and NF will do you from behind anytime!!!

Well done once again Negative Frauds!

Oh joy. I wake up to yet another cluster of mistakes by the team and again gain nothing and see others with their fabulous hoard. All down to where you live in the world again. I was awake around reset but I set up my auto to do my troopers and then go to bed! Ih how I wished I had stayed awake for an extra hour!

I have nothing against those who got their bug hoard win - all good and they did nothing wrong. But why do the rest of us lose out on a shed load of resources and th epotential to fil our missing roster spots like so many in the right parts of the workld did? No one can say this is fair or a level playing field - I agree with a few otherson here about that. Please NF try to do this the right way - every event has a mistake and these all act to divide us players up. How can you run a project like this where nothing works as intended when you do something new - do you test at all. It seems those that gained were on all sorts of platforms and OS so that was not the issue.


I am kind of annoyed but it does not really effect me in a bad way as my roster stays the same as ever - but if this game has a competitive aspect to it then this does without doubt create a have and have nots side to the equation and all through dev mistakes again.


Please consider a fix and not just a shotgun ironite to all thing as that just rubs salt into the the wound even more that many of us got nothing from this event other than the bad taste in our mouths frm yet another mistake.

Be glad youíve missed the whole thing, mate. i and many others have only missed the good part and joined in on the bad part...
See? once the devs noticed that they have rolled out a brainless event (they call it a ďbugĒ), they have simply made the sacrifice button disappear for the my team menu, but you could just go to the EVENT tab and click on GO and you were in sacrifice. sadly the event rewards and alchemist shards were missing at that point, so we got DOUBLE screwed up!
The devs donít even acknowledge that and just ignore it. i have sacrificed a few months old collection of maxed chars and didnít get any rewards...

Just to clarify that I wasn't complaining that I missed out in my earlier post. If I had been able to play I would probably have been all over it like a cheap suit. At the end of the day work comes first. What bothers me now is if Sacrifice is now working correctly? Got a fair few Souls to open which will leave me with a fair few chars to throw in the pit

I am not pointing fingers to my fellow players here,they did well to gain advantage of the bug,I my self would,if I had the chance, as well. The thing is that we wasted a whole stash of really hard earned resources,without even getting any hearts or idols.This is sad.Really.

When Arena Beta came out, random players got to play for weeks before other players and got to keep lots of iron coins before other players could play Arena. They didn’t get rolled back. The few who got the new Sacrifice bug, sacrificed fairly and honestly, not the players fault. When some players fairly and honestly level up a character and talismans, then the game nerfs them and they feel they wasted resources there is no compensation back to the players.

So a small percentage of overall players benefited from this bug. Overall, spotting them by other players will not be noticeable. No roll back is warranted. Otherwise every future bug or nerf players will demand a roll back. Can’t roll back for some for one situation when there’s multiple situations where a roll back is wanted.

Over the last year I got used to the fact that events start with huge fails and errors and therefore I started to skip the first day of events normally. I also got used to the fact that we here in Europe (BTW that is where Maiden comes from...) have a disadvantage because of the reset time. Right now (summer time), daily reset is at 2 o'clock at night!!
And now we have a situation that combines these problems, as events still start with huge fails but now for the second time with the benefit to the players in the first hours. Sounds good? Maybe - if you are in the US. The Primordial "bug" and now the sacrifice "bug" gave out massive loads of resources to the same player base. I read about hundres of skill shards and souls, that we players from Europe are lacking in comparison. Primordials got nerfed, but what will you do about the "local" rain of skill shards etc? Shall we hope that the US guys don't use them, or what? It's a shame!
Giving 150 Ironite to all players, including those who took advantage from these "bugs" is clearly not the way to go. This situation is created, again, because important tests were skipped obviously. I ask you, NF, how do you plan to resolve the situation and how do you plan to avoid this in future?

Because of time zones I started to sacrifice 8 hours after release. I am not angry about the bug, that some players could use at the start of the event.

My rewards so far:

Beast Eddie (nice)
Iron Eddie (nice)
The Alchemist (don't know if he's usefull)
and many skill shards

This time: nice event!

So is the event actually working as it should now or is it not giving out the bonus stuff? Devs can you confirm if it working or not as soon as you can please - I have so many toons and hearts from the last month or so waiting to get sacrificed. It looks to me like we best all wait until the sac event next month - if this is the case please bring it forward in the August events please as this event seems to have been a complete and utter wash out for many or most of us.

So anyone one who has done it since the fix - is it working as expected?

You fill the vortex meter at every sacrifice you do, it's the purple ring around the hole.

Blade
07-20-2018, 01:35 PM
I think they are discussing heavily what to do now! Or they are on holiday, as it is very silent here :)
How about calculating the average number of Skill Shards, Souls etc. that were obtained during the exploit time per player and give that to all accounts that were not online during that time, as soon as they do one ultimate sacrifice and a vortex fill (or something similar)? It seems like you needed to have one big sacrifice at first, but then the thing went on rolling non-stop, concluding from the first posts in this thread...

It is very unlikely there will be any sort of rollback at this point. They had a window last night to roll things back with "minimal" impact and chose not to implement it. The further we go from the incident the more people get impacted by a rollback and the less likely it will be to happen. Also from a global player perspective only a small number of people really know about this. What do we have, a couple hundred active here on the forum and whatever is on the Facebook page? Only 46 comments have been made on the FB page and not all of those are negative. Only a tiny subset of the player base knows this happened or care. There is no hiding a rollback, it impacts everyone. If they ignore this then only a small percentage of people know, a smaller percentage care, and an even smaller percentage get upset enough to make posts either for or against.

I wish I had been able to play during the time of the error just because it must have been a great feeling to get caught up in. Happy for those that got lucky. Disappointed I wasn't able to be one of them. I am just sick and tired of the constant bugs. I'm tired of hoarding resources because I am afraid to use them because they are going to get nerfed/changed because of some bug. Do I fully shard this new character and find out a week later that it got nerfed and isn't worth playing or do I not shard it and miss out on the brief window where it is super fun to use before it gets nerfed.

I can't tell if the sacrifice is working as intended now or not. I've gone through 6 stacks of 99 regular souls (average sac is 9 tier 1 and 1 tier 2 per stack of 99 souls) and only received a single level 1 gold idol. I got the gold idol for the 4th tier 2 sac. Nothing else. So far my average is one bonus item for 6 stacks of 99 regular souls. I hope others are getting better results.

This really drives the point home that there is a serious lack of testing for anything they release. Complex application interaction or not, many of the past few weeks release bugs could have been avoided by fundamental product testing before release.

Devs-Please for the love of [insert deity of choice here] please spend some time working on resolving the bugs and test the code before you release it.

It is not about the pulls from souls, as the 2x chance for 4+5* drops is still active. It is about the fact that some/several/many players (whats the % of guys from the US and close time zones?) got hundreds (!!) of Skill Shards!

07-20-2018, 03:59 PM
Blade is right, those skillys are a big problem, one guy even got 21 stacks of rares, those used at the current sac event with double droprates? Another 500 skillys probably, this just cant be true that some guy got more stuff from a random bug than i did in my entire account in 2 years!

I think that something has to be done. Not against the ones who were lucky when the bug was on (itīs not THEIR fault), but all of us who were not (and as I read many of us are long time players) deserve a compensation to balance our resources and teams.
I donīt know if itīs worthy to sacrifice my remaining toons, because about 8 hours ago 2 tier VI and a vortex gave me 3 5* hearts, 3 legendary souls, about 30 assasin/gunner rare souls and 3 skill shards. 0 rare souls!!. In other events that would be the reward of a tier VI and a vortex (forget about the hearts). It seems that the rewards have been decreased, so instead of a compensation we got a punishment..

Did a number of sacs, VI, VII, vortex fill, and did not pull any rare souls. Managed 5 G/A souls out of one. It seems that in allowing this bug to run free for anyone who could abuse it to get hundreds of souls, they also have ensured that anyone who didnít get in on it is now *unable* to get any souls. Buff for them, nerf for us.

What a fucking joke

Did some V and VI this morning and did not receive any idols/hearts but did receive G/A and Rare souls, skill shards and Alchemist frags on a full vortex. I am sure the % for hearts and idols is probably down.

The attitude of "Others got reward, I didn't, ... take theirs away!" Is what I was referring to. It's malicious toward PLAYERS and self-serving and ultimately whining about missing out. I've missed out on PLENTY that europeans get..... so that's a very poor excuse.

All this is no surprise. They don't do any testing before they implement ANYTHING. Hence all the constant and consistent nagging bugs. They refuse to fix anything and opt rather to sweep it under the rug and answer complaints with generic replies like "it has been passed on to the team" never to hear anything back about the problem again. Then the occasional here's 150 ironite band aid to calm people down and try to get them to forget. I don't know about anyone else but I have lost a ton more than 150 ironite from their buggy game usually in a week or less. It is really sad that the devs have ruined a fun and entertaining game for the true Maiden fans. The game used to be fun and one could look forward to events and winning things. Now the prizes are few and far between. I personally very very rarely get anything but 3 star dupes from rare type souls. It has been even worse during this 2x chance period which was the same way with the skill shard thing last week. This sacrifice event was really good to some folks, and I am happy for them they should get to keep their loot as it is long overdue that people get some decent rewards. The rest of us... well like I said... no big surprise. There just is not anything to look forward to in this game anymore besides bugs and constant let downs. So whatever they do I am sure people are going to get upset because it is impossible to make everyone happy. The cool thing to do would be to make sure everyone who did not benefit got some sort of decent compensation not just another measly ironite band aid. Like that will ever happen...
I foresee another 150 ironite and a big sweep under the rug as usual again in our future.
Good luck everyone... and to the devs...XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX

It is very unlikely there will be any sort of rollback at this point. They had a window last night to roll things back with "minimal" impact and chose not to implement it. The further we go from the incident the more people get impacted by a rollback and the less likely it will be to happen. Also from a global player perspective only a small number of people really know about this. What do we have, a couple hundred active here on the forum and whatever is on the Facebook page? Only 46 comments have been made on the FB page and not all of those are negative. Only a tiny subset of the player base knows this happened or care. There is no hiding a rollback, it impacts everyone. If they ignore this then only a small percentage of people know, a smaller percentage care, and an even smaller percentage get upset enough to make posts either for or against.

I wish I had been able to play during the time of the error just because it must have been a great feeling to get caught up in. Happy for those that got lucky. Disappointed I wasn't able to be one of them. I am just sick and tired of the constant bugs. I'm tired of hoarding resources because I am afraid to use them because they are going to get nerfed/changed because of some bug. Do I fully shard this new character and find out a week later that it got nerfed and isn't worth playing or do I not shard it and miss out on the brief window where it is super fun to use before it gets nerfed.

I can't tell if the sacrifice is working as intended now or not. I've gone through 6 stacks of 99 regular souls (average sac is 9 tier 1 and 1 tier 2 per stack of 99 souls) and only received a single level 1 gold idol. I got the gold idol for the 4th tier 2 sac. Nothing else. So far my average is one bonus item for 6 stacks of 99 regular souls. I hope others are getting better results.

This really drives the point home that there is a serious lack of testing for anything they release. Complex application interaction or not, many of the past few weeks release bugs could have been avoided by fundamental product testing before release.

Devs-Please for the love of [insert deity of choice here] please spend some time working on resolving the bugs and test the code before you release it.

They are incapable of thinking that far ahead!

Well, at this point I think the discussion is moot. It's been almost 18 hours. That's too much too roll back. I honestly wonder if they could even have rolled back in the first place. Might be beyond their capacities.

Yup, man, I have to say this is a poor justification. I'm not saying "I didn't get mine neither should you." I was saying "this is pretty damn unfair."

You cited the lottery earlier in this thread. To me this is more like going to the ATM and getting out 10,000 dollars and not having affect your bank account. You know it's wrong, or at least not 100% right, but then go and take another 10,000 out.


I agree with this, and with what Yup said a few pages back. I earned my toons with the situation presented to me at the time, please do not punish me for doing so.

Y.... in no way you can call it a level playing field that way....


There's been no such thing as a "level playing field" since relics were introduced.

For what it's worth I gained 1 new character due to the event- the Warrior Hellhound. Everything else was a duplicate. I have everything else already. As for the gold.. the BULK of it went to adding character slots.... the bulk of the skill shards went to toon I normally wouldn't use skill shards on (Mummy Ed, Wicker Ed, RTH Ed) so it's not like really anything in my roster changed or benefited much at all.

and.... fully skill sharded - Wicker Ed, Mummy Ed, Soldier Ed, RTH Ed are all still just as pathetic in comparison to the others.

True. But here‘s just another thing adding to it. But anyway, I do not blame anyone for taking advantage of this bug. Nothing wrong with it and I guess anyone would have done so. It‘s just a result of poor or no testing of the new event. Also, I am against a rollback - it‘s far too late now. And how should this actually happen? How to take away gold that has already been spent for example? Just some kind of compensation for those who did not have chance to make the best out of this bug would be nice - since the advantage gained by those who did is huge, especially with respect to the upcoming Gauntlet.

LOL

This was a big F-UP from the "devs".

But it's still an exploit to abuse this "issue". So Rollback should be the best way to damage control all this. Otherwise they will be losing the small faith and loyalty some player still have.

This have nothing to do with penalizing players, this was unintentional and damaged the game as a whole.

Exploit is any form of abuse, doesn't matter if it was trough a bug or any other means.

I honestly don't get all this "players should not been penalized" really??? WTF guys... the ones that have now 300+ SS / Rare Souls / Whatever more came out of the pit, gained from this event clearly abused it. Is this fair play???

How can you even defend this?

Only cause you gained something by abusing a system, and if the results are to be taken away, that is just the correct thing to do.

I know I may been controversy here, but I am being serious, this is clearly a case of exploiting a bug.

Some of us have worked hard to collect all but 10 chars from the game and now people got them all “free” over one night due to a exploiting something that was so obvious a bug.

Return them game to settings from pre this event or something. If some people got that many high tier sacs they are just about done sharping all their new 300 chars up. Stupid. Nothing else to say.

I agree with you to 100%. Wouldn't be a problem for the arena, because you don't need that many chars there but for gauntlet?? One guy got 500 skillys and 21 stacks of rares which should be 400-500 skillys if used for the event like intended. This is madness, this guy could max every toon he needs. If they don't reroll the gain those players will dominate gauntlet without a doubt. 20-30 more maxed chars aren't beatable

And Skill shards? I'm nearly up to 100.

God knows how many souls to redeem I've picked up.

This and Amarthirs story show HUGE event rewards, right on and that's what it is about. Running this and being first in line if there is a bug that works in your favor is part of the RNG fun. Never know when you open a stack of souls and get shit or if you get instant windfall of valuable resources. Playing field is not level and should not be, everyone should not have the identical team and rewards. That would be so boring, nothing to strive for if everything is fair and balanced throughout. I pulled many shit dupes from tier 7s and huge GA stacks in the past, then there are moments like these that make up for them, and I will never stop trying for more and to improve my crew..47614762

Hello everyone.

Last night we experienced a bug with the Sacrifice feature which resulted in a some players receiving an incorrect amount of rewards. Thankfully we were able to identify and solve the problem within a few hours.

We are not adjusting the accounts of players that received more rewards than intended at this time.

If during this period you either:
1) Reached a Vortex and did not receive Alchemist Soul Fragments
2) Entered the Sacrifice chamber using the buttons in the Event Challenges, and did NOT receive any event rewards
We ask that you contact our support team using the Support button in the Settings menu. Alternatively you can email support@ironmaidenlegacy.com (be sure to include your full username) for assistance. Our team will get back to you as soon as they can.

I feel that there are a couple of problems with what has happened.

1) the quite clear lack of testing, unless this is a very very obscure peice of code it should have shown up (just the sheer scale says a lot). This isn't the first issue that testing should have resolved - primordials only needed to be used to see how unbalanced they were.

2) the 'felt fairness' of this issue. This is a error (which it looks like more than being a bug) which a small group in a specific time zone got to benefit from. Most never had the opportunity (and I will openly admit that if the option was there then I would have used it - just saying).

3) the sheer scale of this error, 500 skill shards in an hour - is taken me 10 months of play to get 350 - this just feels wrong, and has a very high disruption potential. To me this undermines the basic trust in the game - and that's a dangerous path to go down.

4) the lack of any acknowledgement of how serious the players have taken this. In previous situations there has been early communication - the silence is possibly worse

Edit - In fact the communication seems even worse than saying nothing!

I don't know the solution, a roll back won't work this late in the day, and I can't see the average of the benefits gained by the few being given to all.

Due to a "bug" I managed to buy something like 15 legendary souls.
A few days later, I got an email from NF, they blocked my account the time to reverse all the transactions.

(quote) "We are reaching out to players who were affected by this bug. The Legendary Soul is a one time only purchase, and was labeled as such. In fairness to other players we are reversing these transactions."

No problem with that, it was not intended, it's fair.

It's because they can't actually do anything about this because of the scale of the issue! Ridiculous I know.

I've had this game since day one and while not an extreme player, I still put in quite a lot of effort. I'm still missing loads of Eddie's and other good toons that I've hoped to get for a long time now and to see some people get hundreds of them as well as skill shards in a short space of time is a kick in the nuts. Skill shards especially because I never get much luck in receivng many!

07-20-2018, 10:28 PM
So I began Part 2 of this event using all the dupes from yesterday to see if I could catch Visions Eddie, I did :3 only after opening like my billionth rare soul lol. So now I believe the only 5* character I'm missing now is the Pharoah Dog King, excluding Trooper and Eternity and Lilith souls since I'm missing some of them too.

But all I can say is, even without the bug, this event still would have rewarded some people with millions of gold and dozens of skill shards. It was just a good event in general, other than the freak accident at the beginning.

So here's a question of opinion, since Doomsday Eddie is going to be here soon, it would be smart to save all these GA souls right? Since a bit ago we got sort of proof that they ARE, in fact, determined when they're put into the book and not when you get them. Because I have about 3 stacks of them and I have absolutely no need to use them right now.

The bigger problem in all of this is it just further shows how bad of a state the game is in.

Every event is bugged.

Constant errors. Can’t get through a list in the arena without having to restart the game.

Can’t load the game at all (check connection bug).

Arena is just a chaotic game of chance. Display bugs, buffs may or may not really be there, all kinds of just random crazy crap. Relics not applied, or maybe it’s just some invisible shield buffs on the D or something. Who knows? Obvious D boost as well. Etc. etc. Strategy is busted.

On top of all that, this sacrifice event is a downer. I mean let’s be real. We get hearts and idols in place of the usual rewards. In the past we got hearts on top of the usual rewards. The Nebul souls are the saving grace. Cyborg frags too if you need him I guess.

More and more pay to win. Short cut to Alexander Eddie, and other toons if you have the cash. Talisman as well. I guess the whales keep the game afloat? Ok, but it’s another unfair advantage.

I love the game, but this stuff just bums me out. I was hesitant to post all of this. I’ve been posting less, and less because there isn’t anything positive to say. I’m a glass half full person, but this glass only has a few drops left.

As far as the devs correcting the excessive rewards like they did with the Arena store Legendary Soul bug, well imo they just don’t have the time, or the want to to deal with it. They said that was not fair play, and this is no different. Again my opinion, and I don’t care if they correct it or not honestly.

I take screen shots of my sacrifices and I’m not even sure what the numbers are suppose to be, but I had a ultimate sacrifice that gave me 20 hearts. Maybe that was more than intended? Otherwise everything else looks normal.

Granted that there were some issues. However I recommend that for extreme cases you contact support as leviathan suggests. I have found that the staff are helpful and friendly and try to resolve issues quickly.

Yes. Michelle finally got back to me with an answer this morning.

Apparently the drops were right st the point when the back door was open, so i got back 40 Alchemist shards from 2 vortex fills...ĒNaaaah, sorry. canít do 50. that would give you an unfair advantage over other players!Ē ^^

BUT ALL OTHERS THAT SLEEP IN EUROPE AT THAT TIME STAY WITHOUT THE SAME REWARDS, another good news of NF
always the same players are f... in that game......IT IS ABSOLUTELY NOT FAIR
I hope they are thinking in a real solution for us that time...

A little bit salt in the wound:

This event brought me
- 2 Vikings
- 1 Beast Eddie
- 1 Clansman
- 1 Cyborg
- 1 PoM
- 3 Vampire Hunter

a few 4* Eddies, lots of 4* dupes.

Still have tons of hearts and souls (about 50 Legendary).

this time I really be positive :-)

Lol wow... It's surely cool to get lot of toons like that, on the other side, having so much stuff from a bug gives no satisfaction.

Anyway this is for sure an embarrassing situation for NF, the game is well known for often having bugs, but this time the bug created an unpleasant situation hard to handle and this is serious... Whatever they are gonna do, it's some sort of point of no return and unfair for those who are in disadvantage towards those like you who got tons of rare resources

I know many people are upset with the recent sacrifice bug. I have just accepted it and will move on with the game. I already consider myself at a disadvantage since I am truely free to play. It's just a game, if I finally get fed up with the incompetence I will leave. I have been playing one year and never really believe I will catch the top players. That's just life, not everything is fair and I have learned to deal with it.

I didn't take advantage of the bug , just did a lot of sacrifices as the event was supposed to work and got around 30 millions on gold and 200 skillshards. Pretty good in my opinion, it was one of the beast events ever. Summoned hundreds of souls and didn't got what I was looking for, PoM or Clansman. Still have the same amount of dupes I started with. I really don't care if some beneficiated from the bug.

Wow...Feels like i have been living under a rock ... on the last 2 days I sacrificed everything I have been saving for months, couple of hundreds of rare and ga souls and got average results I guess... had no clue about all the drama and the exploit .I coudln't care less that I missed out on the exploit as it's common knowledge at this point that this game is extremely bugged, but what's shocking about this event:
How careless the devs seems to be (no action or statement about the exploit)
How people can take negativity in a game to a whole new level (probably not shocking in here)
More importantly, how people, who used to complain about bugs all the time, are now defending it cause they benefited from it...

Wow, impressive.

I only received:

- Hellraiser
- carriage eddie (already have one)
- 23 skill shards

So not very good but not completely disapointed.

I didnít benefit from the bug either, but i still feel like the Noidea Failures shot them selves in the foot here a bit.

I ended up with roughly (i didnít keep any detailed record):
-80M gold
-200 Skill shards
-2 alchemists
-no new toon (was only missing PoM...crazy to imagine that he didnít drop from around 1000 souls)
-plus iíve kept a stack of 99 G/A souls for the release of the new eddie

And i threw into the pit a loads of Clansmans,VHE,Rainmakers,shamans,etc.

So if we translate that into the delusional Ä overpriced store value, where 20M gold costs 100Ä and 3 skill skards 50Ä...Noob Frauds just gifted me over 1000Ä (iím sure they didnít want to be that generous)!

Lovely post :) Especially the last part, as I also feel like a virtual millionaire now. lol
I also did not profit from the bug. And unfortunately I did not wait to start opening souls until the sacrifice event started. Filled the vortex about 3 times during the week. I did not anticipate such generous combination of events. I can only imagine how crazy my account would look like otherwise...
Still I do not want to complain, as I got all missing chars that you can get from souls and also about 200 Skill Shards plus several M of gold. And I got huge amounts of 4 and 5* chars, especially those that I did not have before (coincidence?). E.g. 3x Samurai, 2x Witch Doctors, 4x great Edwards and 4x 7th sons. So it was worth to save all the rare souls for about a year :)

Well I went in after the bug and still did pretty well so for me those that gained from the bug - that is fine.

Did not keep count but I got what was expected and no bugs or crashes while sacing - so that was good. I also got Best Eddie at last (2 of them) and finally the Witch Doctor as well as loads of others that were dupes so that for me was all good. The way it seemed to work for me was that I could keep going round the vortex but what i was finding was that I was upgrading toons to get round another time to vortex so it was using resources (though a gained a load of gold - about 50-60M) plus around 190-200 skill shards. I can still go round more times I think but I may just save my last crop of 5 stars and hearts for the next one, next month.

NF have stated their response to the 'bug' which is nothing to change. So it matters not what the customers think but it's like football referees....we need consistency of response. Primordial was responded to one way, this another - no consistency at all. The only consistency I can see is no testing of events and mistakes of a significant size on each event that is put out. I kind of feel sorry for whoever is doing these roll outs of events - they can't feel great about their job considering they are killing a strong brand name (Maiden not NF) with these mistakes. I wonder if they get any sleep at all knowing that nothing they do works.

It is not just that person(s) but as others have said the game has visual glitches all over the place in arena - do they have the buff above them or not - many times they do not but do we have time to mess about with checking ever toon every round - no we don't and nor should we need to either.


So, the event when it was not bugged was still a good one I think - well fo rme anyway. Not as great as it was for those that got the bug but that is not their fault - for once some folk benefitted - what this does to balance only time will tell but maybe it means there will be more variation in the arena. One thing for sure it is not a fair bug to people in different time zones but I really do not know how they can fix that or try to make it up to the rest of us? Seems like another no win for the rest of us that did not benefit - same as primordial chaos, though to be honest I still think that was handled badly too.

Clearly I am still playing but that is just based on the time I have invested and the resources and addiction!

It's hard to resist the temptation, but feel free to try :) It also depends, how many chars you are missing. The less you miss, the harder to get the remaining ones. Because of that I decided to keep the rare souls.

I'm still missing a lot, haven't been playing that long.
But still, every time I keep more and more souls saved, I seem to get better toons than when I open one by one.

After this event i'm pretty sure that almost everything we complain here isn't developer's fault. I feel like there's a business model where most of the receipt of the game goes anywhere but the development team. Whoever (especially programmers) worked on a company where you had a small team to handle multiple tasks or a big product knows that things like that can happen. It's pretty clear that they probably don't have a dedicated testing team or schedule and that's solely a direction fault.

WOW, this sacrifice event combined with the 2x drop chance from rare souls ROCKED!! Pulled at least 20 5* including Beast Ed and PoM that I was missing. Also I gained approximately 80M gold 150~200 skill shards.
The down side to it is, that I now have all toons (that I want to keep) that I can get from souls except from event and other special souls. So now I'm only missing Alexander, Coal Giver, Beelzebub, the Beast, the God's/Goddess' and magus Lillith (4/4 so far so I guess she is next ^^)
Still possess 100+ souls (Legendary, rare and g/a). But with no new toons to pull and sitting on close to 400 skill shards I have no desire to take advantage of this event no more.

So thx for this event NF!

Same situation here, I have all chars from non-event souls. I am happy that even without being able to do the real exploit (....those screenshots with 45x 5* hearts at once...wow insane!) my outcome was so good! I am sure that some new chars will come in the future (hopfully not only from special event souls) and that we will have the Gauntlet soon, so that our Skill Shards won't collect too much dust. Also we can play around with some unusual chars to find new strategies, although I doubt that there are too many good options on the bench compared to these very powerful goddesses that I don't have :)

Same here. As I won’t play much next week (heading out for W:O:A another time) two days ago I thought about taking a break from the game, cause the whole year didn’t go very well for me :/ Not a single event char from an event soul (only speaking about RNG based souls here)!
I don’t know how many Tier 6 and Vortex I did the last days. And had 18 stacks of 99 regular souls. That was a pretty time consuming sac event, but yesterday I pulled Doomsday Eddie and today Beast Eddie from a rare G/A soul, so after some great dissapointmemt I’m pretty lucky now with that \m/
