And it gets even more bizarre when you start looking at the silver medal teams - One will have 1 point, then one will have 10 points, then one will have 8 points... I can't figure out any logic to it.

I can only assume that it's somehow based on historic information, but I still can't work anything out that fits. I've been trying to work out if it's something like 3 points for gold, 2 points for silver, 1 point for bronze, and it includes the last 4 weeks' worth of data. That example doesn't work, though, given all the strange numbers.

Anyway... none of our theories make sense because there would be no need to come up with a system giving a points tally for different stages in the Spire, because we already have the gold, silver and bronze medals that tell us that, but much more clearly.

@Pauly7 It actualy makes sense. There is a huge difference between 8 silver and 11 silver. This might tell that a fs is silver but close to gold,
I agree, there was a lot of people saying that gold is too hard, but silver is too easy and fellowships in between cannot compare with each other. So it seems this is a reaction from the developers to that feedback.

In that case, just lose the medals.

Hi guys,

For the question about the Spire trophies: You get a bronze trophy each time the fellowship has reached the 4th reward in Spire where they didn't reach the 8th or 12th reward. A silver trophy is the number of times the fellowship has reached the 8th reward in Spire where they didn't reach the12th reward. Gold trophies are for each time a Fellowship has reached the 12th reward.

Does this make it more clear?

We are talking about new spire trophy, not about bronze/silver/gold which are obvious.
Ah, the other 4 trophies are not all specifically Spire related. Those are:

Tournament regulars - Amount of times the fellowship has reached the 5th chest in tournament where they didn't reach the 10th chest.
Tournament masters - Amount of times the fellowship has reached the 10th chest in tournament.
Tournament bonus chests - Amount of bonus chests the fellowship has earned in total.
Spire Fellowship rewards - Amount of spire fellowship rewards the fellowship has earned in total.

Is this what you meant?

@Karvest Thanks, looking into it and asking for more clarification. I saw you reporting earlier that last week an FS with a gold trophy only got an increase of 8 in that last trophy number. Which FS was that, please?

If you look down the list you can see more random numbers. One team towards the top of silver got 1 point, then one further down got 10 points, etc, etc. Several people have reported getting silver, but picking up only 3 points.

I believe it was Taragaryen House who got gold and only 8 points.

imo i think its because they added the new spire badge somewhere during the week, and some FS already won some fellowship rewards before it was added to the game.
I assume its gonna be all fine for everyone next week.

Interesting theory... but wouldn't that mean that all those (except 1) gold medal fellowships didn't go past a single waypoint until they activated the change. I'm sure we would've gone through the first few gates fairly swiftly on Sunday.

I thought of this too, but for me it seemed also nearly immpossible that all gold spire fellowships except one didn't have a waypoint done when the medal started

yeah agrees Soggy the kps may be good but costly
now beginner or new players can not get tier 3 relics in tourney in stage 3 unless they over over scout their world map the limit i believe is 25 before the next chapter and doing 6 about circle is over the max , which leave t3 relics unattainable in the current way of the tounament

i dont get what you mean, you get relics of every type every week now, so why would T3 relics be unattainable? If you can only do 3 provinces a week, even then you will get T3 relics of your bonus 3 weeks out of 9. Im not so sure why you are talking about overscouting here.
