    Greetings Prisoners!

    The time is upon us! The Great War starts now! Valron vs Ulu vs Sovereign! Who will win? The war ends on Thursday at 5 PM CST at which point the victor will be announced! We also have an official time for reset!

    The Great War
    Sovereign v. Valron v. Ulu
    Starts: NOW!
    Ends: March 1st, Friday, 3:00PM CST

    In this post, we hope to address some of your concerns you brought up in yesterdays post about Aether Shards and the costs vs the age of each planet and also go into some detail about each aspect that will be introduced on the winning planet on reset.
    • The Great War
    • Cell level requirements
    • Warzone Monsters
    • Player Prestiges
    • Energy Forges
    • Tiered Zones
    • Bank Blocks
    • Top Rank Giveaways
    The Great War
    How do you support your planet?
    Players will work to gain shards through mining ores, completing /quests & purchasing them via the Cosmic General at spawn. Aether Shards are deposited into your planets fund through the Cosmic General NPC at spawn. The planet with the most shards at the end wins!

    Thursday afternoon Prisoners can look forward to the winning announcement

    Want to see how your planet is doing in the /war efforts? Type /war and watch for regular updates in the chat!

    A main concern many of you brought up was how would it be fair for Valron to compete vs the other planets as they are a lot younger so will not have the same amount of raw cash available to them vs the other planets. As such the devs have done the math looking at each planets age and have come up with the following solution on the costs of aether shards for each planet to make this war fair and give each planet a fighting chance!

    If a player wishes to buy Aether Shards to contribute to the war effort for their planet it will cost the following on each planet:

    Valron Planet Aether Shard Cost: $4,000,000
    Ulu Planet Aether Shard Cost: $8,500,000
    Sovereign Planet Aether Shard Cost: $10,000,000

    This will give each planet a fighting chance at the war because the planet ages vary, we have averaged the cost of shards for each planet based on their age (as it wouldn't be fair to have shards priced the same on a 70d old planet vs a 150d old planet)

    In case you missed it here is the post detailing how wars work and your typical reset information:
    What if players have ranks/gkits on more than one planet?
    Fear not!

    Ranks

    Those with ranks on Valron, Ulu & Sovereign will keep their rank on the winning planet. If players have a rank on multiple planets, they can look forward to receiving a rank note on the winning planet for the lesser of the two ranks (their highest rank will be carried to the winning planet).

    /gkit and /qkits

    Players will have access to all gkits/qkits they currently hold. If you have Vulkarion on one and Slaughter on the other, you will have both on the winning planet. Gkit beacons will be provided if you have the same gkit on multiple.

    /showcases

    Showcases will be transferred to the winning planet (Even if you have a full showcase on both planets)

    PV, Home & Showcase Expansions

    These will all be transferred to the winning planet also. (Note: Expansions will not go over the allowed limit, this means if you have the maximum amount of PV's on both planets you will not have any more than that on the winning planet)

    Reputation Points

    Will be allocated before the start of carnage.

    Wait so this is an event AND reset?

    Yup! You got it right! This is a competition between Valron, Sovereign & Ulu. The planet with the most shards at the end of the week will be the remaining planet and will reset! Both planets will enjoy Carnage while the battle continues on! The same rules will apply with this reset as with any.
    Reset Details
    Now we couldn’t just say goodbye without giving it a proper Prisons send off! To do this we have a bunch of awesome stuff lined up for you guys over the next few days starting Monday!

You will be able to access this gear through /resetkit starting from Tuesday!
    Video Montage Competition
    We all have some great memories from this map and we figured what better way to show this than through some great montages! Starting now and ending at first boot of the new planet you have the opportunity to compete to win yourself a custom title of your choosing to keep forever yes that includes resets, keep in mind the title will be required to follow the rules of the server!

    Cell Level Requirements
    With this reset we have also taken the opportunity to look into cells and how OP each tier of cell can be for a gang! Let's be honest when I say that nobody really needs a Maximum or VIP sized cell and they are really just there for you guys to show off! As such we have taken this opportunity to rejigger the level requirements for each tier of cells! Here are the new level requirements needed for each tier of cell:

    Low Security Cell: Prestige 0 Level 35
    Medium Security Cell: Prestige 0 Level 100
    High Security Cell: Prestige 1 Level 101
    Maximum Security Cell: Prestige 1 Level 102
    VIP Security Cell: Prestige 2 Level 103

    We have also taken this opportunity to look back at the costs of each tier of cell and have made the following changes (Note: We have also decided with this update to completley remove cell rent)

    Low Security Cell: $3,000,000
    Medium Security Cell: $40,000,000
    High Security Cell: $200,000,000
    Maximum Security Cell: $450,000,000
    VIP Security Cell: $1,200,000,000

    These prices are reflecitve of the kind of money you guys should have access to grind when your gang members start to reach these levels and are also reflective of how OP the sizes of these cells are and the cash you guys can grind from them.


    [​IMG]
    Warzone Monsters
    By now I am sure we are all aware of bandits and if you are not then where have you been! Bandits bring a whole new aspect of grinding to Cosmic Prisons! Wanting to grind some cold hard cash but not wanting to mine? Bandits give you guys the ability to roam the warzone and still earn a viable amount of cash on a day by day basis!

    If you are lucky enough when killing a bandit you may also encounter a bandit boss! These guys are the head honchos of the bandits and come packing a punch! Worry not though if you manage to defeat one of these guys you are sure to be rewarded for doing so! Their loot tables give you a chance at being rewarded with anything from gkits flares, contrabands, heroic /cc's and even a Heroic Rank Crystal!

    If you missed the original announcement for Warzone Bandits make sure to sure to read it here!


    [​IMG]
    Player Prestiges
    Prestiging unlocks the ability for you to grind to a higher level each time you do so! When you first start out you will be able to mine up to level 100 at which point you will be capped out and you will unlock the ability to prestige! Prestiging will reset you to level 1 but will also give you the ability to mine up to level 101!

    Each time you prestige you will unlock the ability to cap out 1 level higher than the previous prestige up to a max of level 103! Here are the CURRENT perks for each level past 100:
    Level 101:
    +50% Quest Token Rewards
    -25% Teleport Cooldowns
    +1 Quests
    Extra Quest Rerolls
    High Security Cells
    Godly Crude Ore

    Level 102:
    +25% Energy from the /tinkerer
    Emerald Ore Generators (Full XP Gain)
    +1-6% Chance boost while enchanting pickaxes
    +1 Quest
    +1 Quest Shop Item
    Maximum Security Cells

    Level 103:
    +40% Energy from mining
    Instant-tp from non-pvp zones
    +1 Quest
    200% Ore Sell Prices
    VIP Security Cells
    With these changes, we are also making some changes to the grind and how long it takes for you to grind through the levels! While we don’t want to give you guys the exact numbers just yet I can tell you that the initial grind from 1-50 will not be changing but the grind from 50-100 will be reduced by roughly 35%~ and the grind from 100-101 101-102 ect will also be changing.

    We will also be introducing some nice chat/overhead text for you guys to show off your current prestige to over players! Players will also be able to hover over your prestige to see when you prestiged to prove who really did hit that prestige first!

    [​IMG]
    Energy Forges
    Energy Forges are a brand new way for you and your gang to grind energy! Energy Forges will be a rare drop from Merchants & Bandits! There will be a different tier of forge available for each tier of cell.

    When placed in a cell you will be required to fuel the forge with obsidian! You can grind obsidian through different means (Killing bandits/merchants and also a rare drop when mining for level 101+ players) The more fuel you place into the forge the more you will produce raw energy for you and your gang!

    Each time you place an obsidian block into the forge it will take up an extra block in your cell! You will be able to view how much space your forge takes up through it's UI. Your forge will be constantly generating energy for you and your gang for the entire time it is placed in your cell.

    We will dive into more detail about Energy Forges as they are released in the coming weeks!


    [​IMG]
    Tiered Zones
    Tiered Zones are a brand new aspect to Cosmic Prisons and how the warzone is controlled!
    The overworld is now be split up into tiered zones! These zones will limit the tier of gear and enchants you can use in certain parts of the world!

    These zones will work similar to how Outposts work except you will not be blocked from entering a zone that has a lower limitation on gear and enchants than what you are currently using! The only difference will be is that your gear and enchants will be limited to that of the zone you are in!

    Here are the tiers and the limitations in them:
    Leather Area
    Leather Armor & Stone Weaponry
    Armor Enchants restricted to Level 11
    Weapon Enchants restricted to Level 16

    Gold Area
    Gold Armor & Gold Weaponry
    Armor Enchants restricted to Level 21
    Weapon Enchants restricted to Level 21

    Iron Area
    Iron Armor & Iron Weaponry
    Armor Enchants restricted to Level 31
    Weapon Enchants restricted to Level 31

    Diamond Area
    Diamond Armor & Diamond Weaponry
    Armor Enchants restricted to Level 41
    Weapon Enchants restricted to Level 41

    For more details on Tiered Zones make sure to check out this post here!

    [​IMG]
    Bank Blocks
    Bank Blocks is a new way for you Prisoners to invest your hard earned cash on Prisons! When placed in your cell you can deposit a certain amount of money (Dependant on your mining level) and every time you level up you will gain interest on said money! Be warned though these blocks can be raided! Can you risk leaving that cash in the bank for a long period of time? The choice is yours!
