Why the cooldown for Drakkars has changed

Were you previously able to move to another Kingdom, but after the technical maintenance was over, the cooldown reappeared? Let's take a closer look at this issue.

The reason for this is that the time period after which you can use Drakkars again has changed in the game. You can usually move to another Kingdom once every 30 days, but sometimes, to mark some special events, we change the cooldown of Drakkars to just three days. This rule change is temporary, and when it expires, the previous 30-day cooldown is reinstated.

If you cannot move to another Kingdom after technical maintenance is over, check out the game news. We always inform players in advance about the dates when the cooldown of Drakkars changes from 30 days to three days and back. You might have missed the news.

Let's suppose the cooldown of Drakkars will be changing from three days to 30 days later today. Right now, players can still move, but they postpone doing so because they think the cooldown change won't affect them. After the technical maintenance is over, however, the cooldown reverts back to 30 days. Players may still want to change their home Kingdom, but, following the maintenance, this can only be done in 23 days' time, for instance.

This is not an error; these are the intended game mechanics. When the cooldown of Drakkars changes, the time at which you last moved remains the same. The only thing that changes is the request that the game sends to the server. Previously, it asked the question: "Has three days passed since the player last moved?" But now it asks: "Has 30 days passed since the player last moved?"

Let's imagine the dialogue that the game and the server would have if the cooldown time of Drakkars were three days and the player had last used the items seven days ago:

June 26, 8:00 a.m.

The game asks, "Has three days passed since the player last moved?"
The server answers, "Yes."
The result is that the player can move to another Kingdom.

Here's the theoretical dialogue if the cooldown of Drakkars were to be changing to 30 days in several hours:

June 26, 12:00 p.m.

The game asks, "Has 30 days passed since the player last moved?"
The server answers, "No."
The game asks, "How much time has passed?"
The server answers, "Seven days."
The game asks, "How long is the waiting time?"
The server answers, "23 days."
The result is that the player cannot move to another Kingdom.

To avoid a situation where you can move and then suddenly you cannot, please do the following:

  • Check out the in-game news. This way, you'll always know when the cooldown time of Drakkars is going to be changing.
  • Work out how much time will have passed since you last moved until the cooldown changes from three days to 30 days. If it's more than 30 days, you'll be able to move at any time. If it's less, then it's worth moving while you still can use Drakkars once every three days.
