  • April 12th, Crest Drop Rate Bug

    Its been reported else ware on here but I wanted to create new topic for this specific problem under Bugs.

    The Crests have stopped dropping, I have not received a single crest since April 12th.

    The drop rate was previously around 50%, its now 0%

    This problem was introduced on April 12th, 2013. Please review all updates made to the game on that date.

    I would appreciate an acknowledgement that this is a Bug and give us an ETA as to when this can be fixed.

    I would also suggest better testing before applying code changes to the game in the future.

    Thanks

      Posted this elsewhere but it probably fits better in this thread:

      I have only my original city with a round tower at level 7 (increasing to level 8 now).

      I had 2/100 second city crests and 4/100 third city crests. (But someone attacked me, did NOT breach the wall, and stole one 3rd city crest from my round tower INSIDE the wall. How?)

      I tried Farmer Bob's method (described elsewhere), attacking level 7 picts with Ballistae (instead of level 6 with swordsmen).

      After 50 hits, no additional crests.

      I now have 2/100 seconds and 3/100 thirds. Less than when I started!

      So I'm wondering ... Have crest drop rates have been GREATLY reduced (or stopped) to get people to buy the deeds from the store?

      If not, what crest drop rates should we expect?

      Will crests drop faster than they are stolen by other players?

      I'd like an official response to the Crest Drop Rate issue and how it will be addressed by Kabam.

      Extremely Frustrated,
      Diplomat

        This was for sure a bug in my point of view. I actually complained to support about all the troops I lost without gaining a single crest. They said nothing was wrong. What BS.

          I am having the same issue. Over 100 hits on lvl 6 Pict camps with a lvl 8 rnd house. I will NOT buy a city. And will be deleting the game if no response is given.

            I had over 175 hits on camps 6-10 with level 9 RoundTower and still have yet to get 1 single crest... I hope everyone quits this game bcuz they cant run a company.

            I sent in several tickets about issues that have no received any sort of response

              It would be helpful if you told them what city you are trying to get. If it is the fourth then your cresting is normal and it may get better or they may leave it where it is. If you are going after the third city then you need time to improve your round tower to 9 anyway but if it is the second city you are cresting for, then they need to know that.

              Why not just calmly wait for them to fix the problem and get your city later.

              If you can't wait then buy it.

              Threatening to quit because you can't have something now for free kinda sounds childish. I have 25 crests for fourth city and the rates were horrible so I am not going to spend gems to win gems in their contests I am also not going to waste my troops trying to get a city that will possibly be easier later.

                Update: The crests seem to be dropping again, I got 3 today with a reasonable amount of attacks.

                  I just got done hitting 6 lvl 6 and 1 lvl 7 pic camp trying to get my 2nd city crests and I got nothing. Im told the problem is fixed but this is very discouraging losing all these troops and getting nothing to show for it cept resources which arent even enough to cover the losses. Knight7500

                    crest drop rate... what drop rate

                    I am also very disappointed. I want to get a 4th city and no crests are coming. Please fix this bug ASAP and at least let us know there is an issue here. If you aren't going to drop 4th city crests, then take it off the screen in the round tower that they are available in lvl 6-10 pict camps.

                      I am having this same issue. Couple weeks of attacks to level 6 to 10 camps and only received a about 4 crests. I'd say I attacked them 200+ times. The drop rate is ridiculous and needs to be fixed.

                        I've been attacking pict camps at level 7 with my tower at level 9 my knight on level 80 for the last 3 days and got just 1 crest and lost all my troops, well I don't think that's worth getting just one, the drops are not good enough I play another game same level I get more crest drops than this game not a happy with Camelot game (

                          I'm having the same issue here. I used to get crests about 50% of the time. But today I attacked and defeated (10) level 6 Pictish camps, (2) level 10 camps, and I received nothing at all. I have a level 9 round tower, and I sent way more troops that I needed too.

                          It would be nice if there were a place to report these issues, and for the users to be notified that someone at Kabam was addressing them.

                          If this is a sneeky attempt to frustrate users into purchasing additional cities, then it's going to backfire. I for one will just go play something else. KOC isn't the only game on the internet.

                            I have seen jennifer say that they see what we are saying here and follow along so Kabam knows about the drop rate for ALL CITY CRESTS 2nd, 3rd, and 4th.

                            They have purposely not responded and I cannot guess why they would not want to let us know what is going on or if the rate will continue for all crests or if they are trying to return the rate for 2nd and 3rd back to normal rates.

                            I understand the rate for the forth, it should be nearly impossible and require 10 million might to get, but with no reply from kabam I have to 964d72e72d053d501f2949969849b96e that it is promotional and they don't want to give anyone an edge by letting us know how long until the crest rate will drop.

                              Not sure what a normal rate is. I had assumed that the normal rate is the rate that I had experienced over the last 2 months. Not the rate that I've seen over the last week or so, which seems to be 0%.

                              Just to make sure that I'm clear. I'm looking for 3rd city crests, and my brother is looking for 2nd city crests. We both have the same issue.

                              Speaking of 0%... I have a 0% chance of paying for a deed. ;-)
