Kingdom Lifecycle Definitions 

How Do Seasonal Leaderboards Work?

As discussed in previous Kingdom Lifecycle Initiative updates, we now have a more predictable cycle, which starts after a Month of Migration, and then runs for 3 months.

This 3 month period is considered a season, and these new Seasonal Leaderboards will run the span of those 3 months. It will appear as an event within the KvK event panel, so you can track your kingdom’s rank against others.

Select events throughout each season will be designated as Seasonal Milestone Events. At the end of each Milestone event, Seasonal Points will be awarded based on cumulative points earned across all players on your kingdom. Here are the events you can expect to see!

Breach At The Wall

Consists of two separate Kingdom Ranking Leaderboards for each part!

Varys Riddle

Consists of a Single Kingdom Ranking Leaderboard, attached to Varys’s Riddle  These points are earned in the three sub events players are used to when advancing the progressive of this umbrella event

War For The Throne

This version is a modified version of that same Kingdom Ranking Leaderboards that just also awards Seasonal Points at the conclusion of the event

Lord of Light

This Leaderboard is attached to the Longer Shadows event. Players score points by participating in PvP and healing.

Rewards & Recipes

At the end of each season, rewards will be sent to each player based on their kingdom’s Seasonal Leaderboard ranking. 

These rewards will include a new seasonal currency, Copper Stars, which can be exchanged for special rewards from Recipes active during the following Month of Migration.

We’ll have more to share about those Recipes in January!

War of Kings

Respect is not given, it must be earned. There are many who seek to proclaim themselves Ruler of the Seven Kingdoms, yet only one may sit upon the Iron Throne!

This season, contenders for the throne clash in War of Kings!
