I think you still can choose which weeks to push and which weeks you choose will make a difference. You now have more than one relic to consider each week and it might turn out that it makes the most sense to do say only 6 provinces, or 15, depending on boost and what you have MA preference to make.It will be not about how many chests we get as a FS, the 20 relics come at ten chests for the FS is the same as it was before ! In order to keep up inventory for the Crafting in the MA we will have to work all Tournies equally to keep up. We used to be able to choose which tournies we need to push in to get the relics we need as it is now that choice has been taken away!
That was always a thing, pet food recipes were not changed. Recent change was about spells in "produce" tab, not about anything you can craft in "crafting".
And it would be great if some spells would require boosted relics too, but sadly there is no one...
I'm replying a little late to this but I just had to add my 2 cents. I've just started Chapter 6 and have been doing 9 provinces per tournament for awhile now, at least all of chapter 5. In fact, in the current tournament, I have 10 provinces. I have NOT over-scouted. I scouted and completed exactly the amount of provinces needed to advance to the the next chapter and no more because it's very expensive but moreover, the difficulty is always "medium" and just getting it to be at "easy" level isn't EASY at all. I can't imagine how anyone can over-scout in the early chapters, unless I'm doing it wrong and could've been getting "very easy" levels all this time.You are assuming that everyone does at least 9 provinces per week. This is simply not true, especially in early chapters. In particular, doing 9 provinces per tournament requires having at least 9 provinces per tournament. Without overscouting this would not be the case until around chapter 6.
It's just math. There are 9 different tounaments and 9*9=81. But you will most likely not scout all types equally. So you prabably need more like 90-100 provinces to have at least 9 of every typ. Without over-scouting this should happen around the beginning of chapter 6. Of course you can easily have 10 provinces of some type before that.I just wondered where the stats info comes from that you don't play 9 provinces in tournament until Chpt. 6 when that is not my experience?
Simple. You just need to do the chapters more slowly (for whatever reason) and doing encounter quests for events in the map (and scout of course).I can't imagine how anyone can over-scout in the early chapters
That's the new guild perks feature, I think it was mentioned somewhere in forum.
