The Romanian Demi-god of Hydra and long-time Geomancer worshipper, OddOneGaming will hope to sink his fangs into a fresh Free 2 Play challenge. Will he pull Vlad and truly live up to his heritage or will his shards result in a Jingwon??

Sign up for the Community Challenge

If you would like to take part and make your own Free to Play account for 2023, we’re running community trackers alongside the challengers. In order to sign up you will need to meet the following criteria:

  1. Your account must have been created after 10AM UTC on Friday, the 13th January 2023
  2. Your account must follow the rules of the Free 2 Play challenge

You will need to use the Optimiser to track your achievements and milestones. If you do not already have an account, head over to our membership page to sign up. There is no requirement to a premium member for this challenge.

Once you have created your account, login to your new Free to Play account through Plarium Play, open the extractor and upload your Free 2 Play account. To enter your account into the challenge, click on Challenges on the Raid Optimiser Homepage and then sign up to the Free to Play Challenge. Read through our FAQ below to learn how your account progress is tracked.

IMPORTANT: The Sign Up page will be going Live On Friday (you won’t find this currently in the optimiser)

FAQ

The extractor must be running and logged in when you want to record a milestone. It will be listening to actions you complete in game and record this as achievements unique to your Raid account. These achievements are then used in trackers to record your performance. For example, when you achieve a new stage of Dragon completion (successful battle), a new achievement will be recorded with the team details and time taken.

Yes, the challenge will track the UM number of the Raid Account that signs up for the tournament. This means you can switch between your main account and your free to play account in the optimiser without impacting your free to play challenge progress.

IMPORTANT: Remember that the extractor needs to be active when you complete objectives on your free to play account to accurately track your progress.

The optimiser is required to log any achievements towards the trackers. If you just want to play along and are not interested in comparing your progress against others, then you can join on mobile. We have a discord section dedicated to the Free to Play challenge where you can chat along with the community on your progress and post your success in the tales-of-victory channel.

If you do want to track your progress, you can play without the extractor if you are not logging any new achievements (for example running campaign to farm food etc). Just remember to have the extractor open when you want to record a new achievement.

Yes, it is a good time to make one of the 6 Referral accounts you need to earn yourself exclusive referral rewards including champions such as Djamarsa and Crohnam. Check out our guide on how to make a new referral account in 2023 here.

Yes, you can make referral accounts from your Free to Play account. Djamarsa is a powerful champion for an early account so it is well worth spending an hour to get a few accounts to level 10 to receive this epic!

Challengers will be placed in a Free 2 Play Clan which may have space for some other players but we will not be co-ordinating community clans due to the complexity and workload. It is a full time task managing a clan cluster which creators do not have time to do.

However, we have a section in Discord for the Free 2 Play challenge where you can find a F2P clan amongst our community.

Yes! We’ve designed this event to be a fun kick off to 2023 for creators and the community alike. If you miss the launch date, you can still create a new account and sign up for the free to play challenge. Even though you may be behind some of the launch day accounts, it is still a fun experience to get involved and discuss with the community.

If you have signed up but you’re not receiving a rank for your account, this means your account has been disqualified for breaching the rules. Either the account was created early, or you have not adhered to the Free to Play lifestyle!
