Current Progress

The development team did an awesome job in the current sprint. They implemented all planned improvements for the heroes and were even able to put some additional effort into the feature. Some screens will be more intuitive and look better. There will be more tooltips and most importantly: You can now send heroes without transport boats or land units. You just need to fulfill the minimum amount of population when sending an attack along with a hero.

Next to these improvements, there also have been bug fixes and improvements to the tutorial. The behaviour of the hint arrows was changed and the quest-window got a new look. This is just the first series of improvements to the tutorial this year.

    However, this is not the newest video there, has already seen We in past year.
    And it becomes also sometimes a time which you change the Tutorial Quest. If I only to the rewards there think one agrees. 🙁

    Will Heroes come out soon? or are you guys just teasing us even more?

    • Marcel Zons says:

      The first few markets will launch their first worlds with the heroes enabled in February. 😉
      The remaining markets will follow a few weeks later, depending on the amount of feedback. 🙂

      • Nosy87 says:

        So what you are saying is late february, early mars on all current worlds?
        Don’t like answeres like “few” weeks. 🙂

        • Marcel Zons says:

          There are no plans to enable the heroes feature on existing worlds. Due to player feedback, many players didn’t want their running worlds to become affected by the feature.
          So only new worlds will have the heroes feature enabled.

            personaly i find it strange that most players dont want it. I don’t know how you gather your data on that, but its still strange. I don’t know a single person that dont want heroes.
            So i think you chould give out a pool that all active players chould answere in-game. Not some few people that have strong opinions on the forums.

            My advice tho. 🙂

            Sure, we can at least think about in-game surveys for each single world. But right now, I cannot make any promises. Let’s just wait and see what happens as soon as we start the first test markets. 🙂

            From our point of view, the whole topic wasn’t (isn’t) easy to handle. It seems that there are people who would actually quit the game if they had to use heroes. Then there are those who are eagerly waiting for it. Now try to make both groups happy! ;-p
            But we will do our best.
