Welcome to the community update. Here is a quick summary of what happened in calendar weeks 11 and 12 and a small outlook for future development.
Researching changes in early game phase & new forum layout proposals
In an effort to enable new players to become Grepolis masters, we plan to implement some changes that we hope will make understanding the game and surviving the first weeks a little easier.
Nils has already presented our ideas for a small change in the order of researches. Yet there is more to come, so keep your eyes peeled!
Those of you who follow our updates regularly have already spotted that we are working on improving the layout of our forums. For those who missed it, here is a little discourse on what we have planned. We’re looking forward to reading your feedback!
Please note that these mockups are in no way final and may be altered before this graphical update is released later this year.
v2.134 was released this week. This version contains changes and preparations in regards to the activation of Artemis for all game worlds in v2.135.
As soon as all 6 gods are available for all players, we will be able to offer awards and rewards related to their respective units. Unfortunately this was not possible previously as the different activation states would have caused errors in game worlds where Artemis was not available.
Next version preview
The sprint for version 2.135 will end this week. Apart from taking preparations for upcoming events we have adjusted the handling of current events in the Greposcore overview. This change will allow us to handle recurring events better and ensure that the right graphics and categories are displayed.
As mentioned earlier, the goddess Artemis will be activated on all game worlds. While her powers and units will be enabled immediately after the activation, awards and other related features will follow with later implementations.
Last but not least we have worked on improving the notifications about the start of the era of world wonders. Previously each player was informed only upon starting a new session after the era has started. Now we will make sure that everyone is aware of the endgame race shortly after it started.
The current update schedule for v2.135 is as follows:
Tuesday, April 4th: NL, SE and SK market
Wednesday, April 5th: international roll-out
