Daily Login Streaks Reverted

Hey everyone! It’s been nearly a week since the release of the daily streaks login, and here’s what we’ve learned from it, what we’re doing about it, and what to expect.

Reverting the update
After careful consideration, we’ve come to the decision to revert the streaks update, whilst we take the time needed to fix the bugs that has been occurring with it. We know that reverting updates is not fun, and trust me, it is even less fun for us, but with the amount of bugs the daily streaks is having, it’s something we have to do at this point in time to ensure a good gameplay experience for everyone.

Why we’re making this decision
We want to be transparent with all of you and explain why we’re making this decision:
  1. We miscalculated the bonus experience rewards by a long shot. In some cases, players were rewarded over 20 million experience.
  2. A lot of player’s streaks were resetting at random times, when they were not supposed to reset.
  3. The daily login streaks itself weren’t optimal. Some of you might have noticed, but the bonus rewards were delayed by 1 second. If someone logged out before this 1 second arrived, they would not get the reward which is bad player experience and unwanted.
  4. We didn’t test this release carefully and thoroughly enough.

So, what now?
We’ll be reverting the daily login reward to the old one. For the next 7 days, every time you claim the reward, you’ll be rewarded 25 gold as an accommodation for this release. This will only last for the next 7 days, so be sure to get on to get the bonus!

We don’t know when the daily login streaks will be back, but we promise it’ll be back much better than before, as we will be improving the functionality as well as fixing the bugs.


Daily Login Streaks

Witches and wizards, today we bring you an update from the development team! A new method of earning gold and Potter Points is here!

What are daily login streaks?
Daily login streaks are our new way of encouraging players to join the server on a consistent basis. This way, if you log in multiple days in a row, the reward you get for claiming your daily reward gradually increases, and continues to do so based on the streak amount. Graduates receive a larger gold bonus, whilst non-graduates receives a very large experience bonus.

Once you’ve reached the tenth consecutive daily login, the login streak will reset and you will be rewarded 25 Potter Points.

Balancing changes
With this, we’ve made a few changes to graduate rewards. Instead of receiving 50 gold for simply claiming your daily reward, you now receive 25 gold by default. However, as your login streak increases, the total gold reward will exceed 50 gold.

The daily reward also no longer resets at midnight, but instead receives a 23 hour and 30 minute cooldown from the moment you claim your reward.

We hope you enjoy this update! Thank you all for your continuous support!

Moderation Restructure

Hello everyone!

The Head Staff team and the Moderation department are excited to announce a change to the Moderation team! A few ranks are being renamed and there's a new role being added to the department in order to help balance things out a little more. The roles are now going to be:

  • Jr. Prefect - This is the entry rank to the department and is just the old Trainee rank renamed.
  • Prefect - This is the mid rank in the department and functions almost the same as a current Prefect would.
  • Sr. Prefect - This is the new rank, and is the senior position in the department. These are similar to Prefects but have more responsibilities.
  • Lead Prefect - These are the Leads in Moderation and are the old Sr. Prefects [not to be confused with the new rank].

There are, of course, the other ranks within the department, but these remain unaffected by these changes. We hope that these changes make sense! The application for Moderation will be renamed to reflect these changes, and anyone currently in the process of applying will remain unaffected by the change.

Please don't hesitate to contact the Head of Moderation or any other Head Staff member about any questions or concerns that you may have.
