  • Tournament Drops disabled for The Defense 3?

    First game of the Defense 3 since the tickets were released, neither of the teams playing have existing pennants. First Blood occurs and there was no message announcing that someone received a drop for witnessing it. Are Pennants required again, or does TD simply not count as a "tournament"?

  • #2
    can confirm. a little transparency when it comes to the pennants wouldn't hurt. Are they required for drops now or not?


    • #3
      did not see an official word about this, but:

      starladder season 4 has today (and only today) no drops too, so defense 3 not having drops may be a bug or overload on the item server or something like this. since the tournament drops were enabled, you did not need at pennant to get a drop (it was like that on premier league, dreamhack and starladder at least)


      • #4
        now in minute 9 a drop very strange


        • #5
          Yep, working now. False Alarm.


          • #6
            I have seen 2 games today and 0 drops so far please fix this. Some people even using pennants haven't received nothing yet


            • #7
              a lot of times the end of game drops just won't work if there are any leavers. it's dumb

                no item drop after ultrakills/rampage

                  You're posting about Starladder in a Defense 3 thread... Anyway, I have noticed that lately, the item drop server has been lagging with respect to the time the drop events happen. For example, the item drop for "witnessing glorious victory" does actually drop, but not until about 2/3 minutes after the end game summary screen is displayed. During this time you still see item drops occurring for multi-kills from the last fight before the throne went down. Sometimes you don't even see the "victory" drop because the match times out and you get booted.

                  It's like this throughout most of the game. Item drops don't occur at the time of the event, but instead lag behind by a minute or three.

                    It feels as though, when multiple players get multiple kills at the same time, only 1 item is being rewarded? Sometimes the next multi-kill doesn't get items either, or if they do get rewarded it is severely delayed from the event. I also think that witnessing victories also doesn't proc item drops from time to time. I noticed this happening in the Dreamhack Invitational, so I assume this is not tournament specific.
                    This ain't ova.
