Community Update: Week 16

Since the last community update, version 2.38 has been announced and the change log has been published.

Rebalancing

The feedback from all communities have been collected over the course of the week. On behalf of the team we would like to thank you all for your investment and all your comments on that topic! Our game designers will now analyze your feedback and we will get back to you on this DevBlog with the new draft of the rebalancing changes. Stay tuned for more information within the next few weeks!

New videocasts

Did you like our first videocast? We have some good news for you! We already started to prepare the next videocast. We came up with a list of ideas and topics we would like to discuss in the next videos and we will pick one of them for the second one.

Current Progress

The development of version 2.39 is still ongoing and we can say that it is looking great so far. The team achieved a lot already and we are confident that we are on the right way to reach our sprint goals, which are the Island Quests, the first part of implementing the Heroes feature, and the first-7-days login reward.

    the islands quests and the 7 days login rewards sound great.

    when will the rebalancing update be?? somewhere in week 18 or so?

    • Jordan Coutout says:

      I’m afraid the rebalancing will take some more time. After analyzing your feedback, we will publish a second draft on this DevBlog. Once we agreed on final values, we will organize a public beta testing which will run for some weeks.

    The new features coming in 2.39 sound really good! Especially the island quests.

    Is there any kind of timeframe yet as to when 2.39 with be implemented here on Beta for testing?

    The heroes feature which I believe you are referring to Heroes that are going to be added. I have a few questions on this.

    How exactly is this going to work? Hire hero? Also will gold contribute to a stronger hero? Can we have multiple heroes? Gold will be used to buy slots for heroes? Hero leveling? Bonus?

    I personally believe these should be answer before releasing the hero to hear feedbacks and not release it, then hear feedbacks, because by then it would have been too late.

    • Marcel Zons says:

      We will release more information about the heroes quite soon (most certainly before actually releasing the feature).

      What I can say is this: Gold cannot be used to get stronger heroes, you cannot even make heroes stronger by using gold.
      There will be 1 or 2 Gold options regarding heroes, but they will be really soft and handled with care. 🙂

    Man had already started pumping out triremes. Really excited about their proposed changes, hope they come through soon. Don’t know if anyone noticed but we will finally have a suitable attack ship that can sail with the fast transport without slowing them down!

    Hey guys,

    just wanna say this is a great idea to let us know what you guys are planning ahead:)
    And i know you guys need a big revenue to keep the game running,But can you guys atleast try and release a world only every month or so?.

    Just a thought
    Again great job you guys:)

    Right now it sounds like WordPress is the top blogging
    platform out there right now. (from what I’ve read) Is that what you’re using on your blog?
