Title: Contest Time!
Post by: Adiera on November 03, 2019, 05:29:27 am

It's contest time! Answer correctly and you could be one of 5 people to win 3 Scrolls, 8 Magic Powders, 10 Oars, and 10,000 Denari!
Your Temple is level 9, you click build but it won't let you. What are the 4 things that you could be missing (the 4th one might be a bit elusive, but it's an easy one to overlook when you're in a hurry!)?

Don't forget to include your World number when you answer (otherwise your name won't be entered)!

1. Missing resources W/S (either not enough, or still on the way)
2. Missing the blessing (or expired blessing)
3. Missing required Loyalty
4. Missing that alliance already has level 10.

PS - There are quite a few broken links for the loyalty page in the archives (like in Shrines page and Crowns page).

EDIT: W18 Please

1.  Not enough resources sent as Temple Donations
2.  Resources sent haven't arrived yet
3.  Not enough alliance loyalty to the God so even though you have the resources your city is not getting blessed (for the record, you need 96% loyalty to a God to get a Level 9 blessed)
4.  Blessing ended
5.  You were about to hit build at the exact moment another Temple was built to Level 10, meaning your alliance won a crown and all temples were destroyed automatically, so your 9 on screen did not exist any more
6.  Your alliance disbanded at the exact moment you were about to hit build, meaning your temple was destroyed
7.  You were booted from your alliance at the exact moment you were about to hit 'build' therefore your temple was destroyed
8.  Your build queue is full
9.  You have an active Hand of the Gods item

1.  Not enough resources sent as Temple Donations (use temple items to overcome)
2.  Resources sent haven't arrived yet (use steeds to speed them in)
3.  Not Blessed
4.  You were about to hit build at the exact moment a when the Temple of the last faith that was needed to be build to level 10 was built to Level 10, meaning your alliance won a crown and all temples were destroyed automatically, so your 9 on screen did not exist any more
5.  Your alliance disbanded at the exact moment you were about to hit build, meaning your temple was destroyed.
6. You were booted or left alliance just before hitting build,
7. Temple was capped or crushed before you hit build.
8. You mistook the city that you were in and accidentally abandoned your temple castle before hitting build (display error)
9. You lost connection to game (ie no internet)
10. It's already building

I'm not looking for THAT elusive! That scenario of 2 people building a level 10 at once, would only work if they both had level a 9 and one sped theirs up and it was the crowning Temple, and your click came right after the moment the Temples self destruct and right before the display catches that your Temple has self destructed.  That scenario is highly unlikely, not just elusive :)

PS - There are quite a few broken links for the loyalty page in the archives (like in Shrines page and Crowns page).

Are you using old bookmarked links? If so, we've completely rehauled the Archives and so those links won't work anymore. They're broken because those pages no longer exist.

Also possible -

Your wireless mouse battery died and it no longer responds to clicks ( happened to me actually not for lv10 but in another critical situation)

Title: Re: Contest Time!
Post by: username on November 07, 2019, 06:39:50 pm
Well, since they have to be something missing...

 - Missing resources (1)
 - Missing faith required (2)
 - Missing a blessing (3)

(Ignore: Missing space in your city to fit the building (4))

All mistakes I've made before. :p

*edit*

I just realized my #4 makes no sense if the palace is lvl 9. I'm such a dunce.

Let's change that to uhhh

Missing uhhh everyone else is saying space in build queue, but that's too obvious to be right.

Let's go with missing the bigger picture, which is that it doesn't matter who is right or who is wrong. All that matters is that we all endeavor toward the elusive end that justifies every decision and rectifies every mistake. You must have faith, not only in your cities, but in your hearts. Final answer.

*edit*

WAIT

Space in build queue may be too obvious, but,

- Missing room for the building because basilica is not high enough or you are at 100 building limit (4), FINAL ANSWER! FTW!

There are 5 instances when you click you level 9 Temple, that the Upgrade button on the left will be grayed out and unable to build.

1) Not enough temple resources available to upgrade to level 10.
2) The temple is not enlightened.
3) Not enough prerequisite loyalty to upgrade to a level 10.
4) Build queue is full.
5) Hand of God item is active.

Well, the situation is a bit funny.
One of the answers everybody is giving is technically correct. The situation described in it could be created on purpose. However a real game situation like that is not very likely to happen.
I humbly hope that the contest organizers were looking for the other answer.

So, how is one supposed to award the prizes?
Award them to the people who gave the expected answer?
Or draw a lottery that includes everybody who gave technically correct but "extremely unlikely to happen"  answer?

Ahhh, the suspense...

Congratulations to our 5 winners!

Gundown, Penguini, Siolad, SuzukiC and Tremor!

Each has been directly credited 3 Scrolls, 8 Magic Powders, 10 Oars, and 10,000 Denari to their World of choice! Keep checking back here in the forums for more :)


Ok, so barring all of the really near impossible answers, I did include the Hand of the Gods item as correct (though it wasn't the expected answer because it would really almost have to be an accidental use by someone not knowing it would block the build, as using it on purpose while Blessed would hamstring you). The answers I was originally looking for are as follows: 1. Not enough space in your build queue. 2. City no longer Blessed. 3. Not enough Resources (I lumped Wood and Stone together as both are needed). and 4. Not enough Loyalty (It is possible to get the Blessing, then lose the Loyalty points needed to build it, as this is a war game and Temples get knocked down a lot. This is an actual viable strategy that has been used successfully to hold back an Alliance from crowning).

It is possible for an alliance to own more than 1 level 10 Temple, so that in itself would not block a build. It would be one of those near impossible scenarios where 2 people were trying to build the crowning level 10 at the same time, and the first person built theirs while having it completely quick built by Hammers being stacked ahead, and the other clicked right after so all the Temples got destroyed before their click could register. I did not allow this as a possible answer as that scenario is really highly unlikely to happen (unless y'all try to do it on purpose now just because of this contest!) :P Yes..I know, some of you will be tempted! lol

As a juicy tidbit, every one of the answers I was expecting (not the Hand of the Gods that I accepted as technically correct), have come from tickets entered! :) It's easy to overlook a seemingly minor detail when under pressure or in a rush.
