Sep 2, 2015 | Age 20 - And you thought there was nothing new!
Age 20 will be unique in one very important way - prizes will be given to the top finishers as follows:

  • #1 First Place will receive an AppleTV Digital Multimedia Receiver and a US $100.00 iTunes Gift Card
  • #2 Second Place will receive an AppleTV Digital Multimedia Receiver and a US $50.00 or iTunes Gift Card
  • #3 Third Place will receive an AppleTV Digital Multimedia Receiver and a US $25.00 iTunes Gift Card

Now for a few details:

We really want to keep this simple. This is not a major sweepstakes or lottery. It is a simple prize offering to the top three winners of our game. Therefore, only the FINAL ranks at the end of the age will determine the winners. Period.

Any player with a current account at the end of the age is eligible to win, with the exception of any account that has been banned for any reason during the course of the age.

No donation or in-game purchase is required in order to be eligible for the final prizes. NO PURCHASE IS NECESSARY TO WIN. A PURCHASE/DONATION DOES NOT INCREASE THE CHANCES OF WINNING. How well you play the game determines your chances of winning.

If you win and you have the bad luck of living in a place where this kind of prize is taxable - you are responsible for those taxes. RoC/gamefiar, LLC will accept no responsibility. You're on your own!

Don't bother to whine about the prizes - if you don't like Apple or iTunes, don't win! :D (RoC is not endorsed by or affiliated with Apple, Inc. in any way. Not yet!)


RoC/gamefiar, LLC reserves the right, in its sole discretion to cancel, terminate, modify or suspend the prize offering should (in its sole discretion) a virus, bugs, non-authorized human intervention, fraud or other causes beyond its control corrupt or affect the administration, security, fairness or proper conduct of the game.

By accepting one of the prizes, you understand and agree that RoC/gamefiar, LLC, will have the right, where permitted by law, without any further notice or consent, to print, publish, broadcast, distribute, and use worldwide in any media, now known or hereafter, in perpetuity and throughout the World, your game name and photograph, if available, as news, publicity or information for promotional purposes without any further compensation.

a-ayo ayo a-ayo ayo a-ayo ayo a-ayo ayo, but if you close your eyes, does it almost feel like nothing changed at all

So the conversation on Saturday went something like this:

did we add anything new for the age??
quick! alter the race bonuses ever so slightly!
do something!! :D

Then I was totally gonna do stuff, I swear. Then flupocalypse, zombiepocalypse, or whatever pocalypse it is that I got, and I was totally out of it on Sunday and Monday. To be honest I'm kinda still out of it. But yeah.

So, today, I am going to make the biggest change ever to RoC:

  • Updated copyright year

[sad trombone]

But wait...there's more

  • Altered race bonuses ever so slightly!
  • Well, not too slightly, considering a built in race stats bonus has gone away in favor of what used to be just a secondary bonus.
  • Humans: Reduced repairs (20%)
  • Dwarves: Reduced casualties (20%)
  • Elves: Gold vision (33%)
  • Orcs: Convert casualties (10%)
  • RIP pixies and goblins?

"hey, why don't you do something about the sabbing for once?" - said nobody ever

  • Removed top sabbers daily, sab ranks will not be shown at the end of this age. Find a better reason to sab, you meanie! Like, a bona fide war, or something. Yeah, I know, I never finished the war system...:(

/me ducks

"Was the scavenger event just a troll event?"

  • Doesn't seem to have actually done anything before. Now it does stuff, though. I think.

Love you guys

edit: about the orc casualty bonus:

This is the casualty conversion bonus we had a while back, where some of the enemy's dead things convert into untrained soldiers for you. This counts for mercs, coverts, etc. If you use the maximum number of turns (12 usually, or 9 turns on alliance members, or 6 turns during double trouble), you get 10% of them, if you use 1 turn, you get 1/maxturns of 10%.

So, effectively, the double trouble event also happens to double the casualty conversion for 1 turn attacks.

  • New events
  • Altered old events
  • Slow News Day is funny again
Dec 20, 2014 | Next Age
With less than 2 days until Age 17 ends, planning for the next age is in full swing. Due to the timing of the age end, with regards to the upcoming holidays, we will have a brief (4 day) speed round to allow those who wish to actually see friends and family during the holidays to do so without being penalized in game for having a social life.

The nerve of those losers.

Limbo activations will begin at 12:01am EST December 26th and last for 12 hours. It's pretty much guaranteed that someone in the world will be offended by this choice, so Andy tenders his resignation in advance.

Let the games begin, and Happy Holidays from the RoC staff!

Today we learned the sad news of the passing of our friend and ROC member, Robert Allen´╗┐ a.k.a. Chromed. The severe pain and unrelenting suffering he endured at the hands of that beast cancer is now over. Our thoughts, prayers and deepest sympathies are with his family and circle of friends today.

RIP, Chromed. The gold is all yours now!
