We noticed a number of the Spring of Sorrow objectives aren't working properly, we are investigating and currently working on a potential solution.
We apologize for the inconvenience.


Is there something I'm missing?

The people in my alliance have a deep-seated aversion to pressing the HELP button. I don't understand this. I get that punching it over and over to clear all of the requests is somewhat time-consuming (but not nearly as much as it used to be now that you can do 10 at a time). I also get that not everyone has a psychological need to clear all of those notifications. But even when the Alliance Help event shows up, it often takes the majority of the 24-hour period to get over the threshold, in an alliance with 30 members.

Doing this one simple thing takes 30 seconds, and over time, can really affect how quickly people can finish quests! The number of times I can check how much HELP I'm receiving, and find that an old request is at 2/10 and the new one is at 0, is staggering to me. I've tried asking politely in the alliance chat. I've tried messaging the head of the alliance privately to ask if we can add that basic level of participation to our description. NOTHING. Meanwhile, as soon as an AQ or AW starts, there are people in all-caps yelling to join or else!

Does this weird dynamic exist in anyone else's alliance? Again I ask, is there something I'm missing?

    My first alliance was somewhat like that. You can join another alliance if you want more active players

    Maybe not cap the rewards on helping people might increase arena grinding

    wait.. people care about this? the help system is so broken that at this point it's easier to just ignore the whole thing than suffer through 10 minutes of lag each time you press the button

    Edit: just went to press the help button for my ally, it stopped working after a bit and now every time i press it, the button does absolutely nothing.

    I mean, when I see 2000 help requests, sure they button does 10 at a time, but when there’s server lag and stuff, I really can’t be bothered to press a button 200 times especially when it cuts off what? 2 minutes from a cooldown?

    I think it’s more than 2 minutes. I can request for help for my 6* every 2 hours or so. I have seen 2-3 hours shave off for my 6* cooldown.

    I think not helping after you reach 1000 loyalty has to do with lag and crashes

    There is a pervasive belief out there that requesting help or sending help causes game crashes. It does not. It might exacerbate them somewhat, but it most definitely doesn't cause them. The same activity that generates crashes when I play the game generates them whether I request help or not, or send help or not, in carefully controlled testing.

    Well, if you go in search of a new alliance check out BlackShadowKillers2. We love smashing the help button and work pretty well together in the other aspects of the game.
