Guild Siege Duel
The Siege Duel system was first mentioned at the Festa Event in December 2017 and its purpose is to add a 1v1 duel system which will take place before the siege starts. The victorious side will receive a small buff for their members, giving them a slight advantage in the siege.
- Siege participating guilds can participate in a 1v1 duel between the Defending guild and the Attacking guild.
- The guild leader of the Attacking guild can request a duel before the siege begins at around 20:50.
- The request will then be sent to the Defending guild’s leader and can be accepted.
- If the Defending guild’s leader is not online, the Attacking guild will automatically win the duel.
- The winning guild will receive a small buff, designed to help them and give them a slight advantage in the siege. More information will be available in the KR patch notes on May 17th.
