War for the Throne and Rebellion Weekends are exciting PvP events where Seats of Power unlock outside their usual cadence!
The next run will introduce some new point mechanics and rewards to raise the stakes even further. Read on to learn more about kingdom pairings and what’s in store for the April 9th, 2021 PvP Weekend!
This month we’ll be adding new Pawn Shard Gifts as rewards!
When we added the Conqueror march pawn to KvK/War for the Throne last year, players pointed out that higher level Seats of Power really require a team to overthrow, and folks wanted to reward their Allegiance members who helped them with the siege.
The next War for the Throne event will let you do just that!
Players holding a 3 star or higher Seat of Power at the end of the War for the Throne: Invasion event will receive 8 Pawn Shard Gifts they can send to others. Higher star SOPs will grant rarer gifts which include more Conqueror Pawn Shards per gift.
Please note, we initially announced that we would also be adding a new mechanic this month to award points over time for folks holding SoPs. However, we have decided to hold off on adding this for now. We still plan on releasing this down the road though, so keep an eye out for future runs!
Now let’s get into the kingdom pairings for these events…
KvK War for the Throne!
War for the Throne allows you to teleport to another kingdom to battle for kingdom supremacy!
This event includes Rebellion mechanics, with all Seats of Power 3 Stars and up unlocking throughout the invasion period and the end of the PvP event.
Kingdoms participating in the April 9th War for the Throne weekend:
- War for the Throne – The first half of the rebellion – All SOP will unlock during this event (Begins ~2pm Sat, Ends ~10am Sun)
- War for the Throne: Invasion – KvK Event Teleports are active during this event. KvK Pawn Shards are paid out to players holding SOPs at the end of this event. (Begins ~2pm Sat, Ends ~10am Sun)
- War for the Throne : Respite – During this recovery period, all Seats of Power will be locked (Begins ~10am Sun, Ends ~2pm Sun)
- War for the Throne: Retribution – All SOPs unlock again for one final push (Begins ~2pm Sun, Ends ~6pm Sun) All SoPs will return to their normal unlock cycles after this event ends.
- War for the Throne: Open War – The PvP event that runs throughout the weekend (Begins ~2pm Sat, ends ~6pm Sun)
- All times listed are in EST. Start times can vary slightly by kingdom but the overall duration will remain the same.
Keep in mind that forced SOP unlock events like Rebellion and War for the Throne do not permanently change the unlock schedule of a kingdom, so you should expect all Seats of Powers to resume their typical unlock schedule after the event ends.
For fully unlocked kingdoms who do not qualify for War for the Throne, there will be Rebellion PvP.
Rebellion mechanics signify that Seats of Power can unlock outside their normal cadence. The following Kingdoms should expect all paramount* Seats of Power to unlock for the duration of the Rebellion event:
Rebellion events do not permanently change the unlock schedule of a kingdom, so you should expect all Seats of Powers to resume their typical unlock schedule after the event ends.
*Paramount Seats of Power: Casterly Rock, Dragonstone, The Eyrie, Highgarden, Riverrun, Storm’s End, Sunspear, Winterfell, King’s Landing
Don’t see your kingdom listed above?
We wait until all regions and capitals have been released on a kingdom before we include them in SOP unlock events like Rebellion. KvK is intended for post-merged kingdoms that meet the same criteria and have a similar kingdom matchup to compete with. If your kingdom does not qualify this round, don’t worry! There will still be PvP events, and there are more chances to take part in these events in the future.
New or recently merged kingdoms under 4 weeks old will instead receive a variant of this event without additional Seat of Power unlocks, so make sure to check out your event description and prepare for PvP!
Use the upcoming days to plan accordingly with your allegiance.
We wish you good fortune in the battles to come!
