Invasion Leaderboard

There's a new leaderboard available today, the Invasion Leaderboard. This leaderboard shows who has invaded the most times, and what troop they prefer. There are also PlayStation 4 and Xbox One versions for those of you on those platforms.

As a reminder, to participate in any of the leaderboards, you will need to opt in via your Account page. Only one opt-in is required to participate in any of the leaderboards.

Visit your My Collection page to update your numbers when you deem it appropriate.

As always, please leave me feedback at ashenbloom@gmail.com, or via @Lyya on the official forums, if you have ideas that could improve the site.

PS4 and Xbox Account Linking

I've got some exciting news for Console players! It's finally possible to link your PlayStation 4 or Xbox One account with your Gems of War Database account, which allows for automatic updates to your account from the game, as well as resource tracking -- just like PC and Console players have had available since early this year!

To link your accounts, go to your Account page, and enter your invite code as well as other information pertaining to your account (count of two traitstone values, which can be found in your Collection tab in-game). The direct links can be found here:

Platform Page
PC/Mobile /gems/account/link
PS4 /gems/ps/account/link
XBox One /gems/xbox/account/link

A single Gems of War Database account can be linked to one each of PC/Mobile, PS4, and Xbox One game account.

To view your collection, you will need to view the platform-specific page for that collection:

Platform Page
PC/Mobile /gems/collection
PS4 /gems/ps/collection
XBox One /gems/xbox/collection

Additionally, all leaderboards will work for all platforms and are separated by platform; the Ascension leaderboard can be found at /gems/ps/extras/ascension for PS4, for example. All links are per-platform in the nav bar. As per the PC/Mobile pages, you will need to opt into statistics gathering on your Account page.

The old "console" platform pages (http://ashtender.com/gems/console/, etc.) will continue to function for the time being, but will redirect to the PS4 page. Please update your links, especially if you are playing on Xbox.

I don't have a PS4 or Xbox to test with, so if any information is incorrect, or I've broken other functionality in the process, please do not hesitate to leave me feedback at ashenbloom@gmail.com, or via @Lyya on the official forums.

Leaderboards and Menu Organization

I've made a small update to the site to reoganize the non-essential "toy" pages of the site under its own heading, "Extras." Of the currently-linked pages, this includes only the Quiz page.

I'm taking this opportunity to officially introduce the Ascension Leaderboard! This page is a way to "compete" (just for fun) with other players as to who has the most troops fully-ascended and leveled to 20. Though it's seen quite some use from players on the official forums, it will be easier to find now that it is linked in the nav bar (under the aforementioned "Extras" heading).

In addition, I've added another leaderboard, the Hero Level Leaderboard. This functions similarly to the ascension leaderboard but instead tracks the player with the top Hero level. This page, too, is linked via the "Extras" heading in the nav bar.

To participate in any of the leaderboards, you will need to opt in via your Account page. Only one opt-in is required to participate in any of the leaderboards.

As always, please leave me feedback at ashenbloom@gmail.com, or via @Lyya on the official forums, if you have ideas that could improve the site.

Technical issues with My Collection

Update: It should now be possible to link accounts again. Instead of entering Gold and Souls totals, new users will need to provide the total number of Minor Wind and Runic Fire Traitstones they have in their collection to validate their identity. Again, apologies for the incovenience. New users can link their accounts here.

Hi everyone,

Due to changes in the API I am using to retrieve user data for the My Collection page, I no longer have access to resource totals outside of Traitstones. Gold, Souls, Gems, keys, etc. are no longer available to me. That has several implications:

  • I have had to remove the totals from the display. You can still see your kingdom bonuses and your traitstone totals, but souls will always be zero in the traitstone panel and all other resources are no longer shown.
  • New users will not be able to register until I can come up with an alternative means of verification. Your patience is appreciated; I apologize for the inconvenience. (Fixed, see Update above)
