We hope you enjoyed a few days of easter peace time if that was the case in your community. Now let’s get back to the game with the community update for calendar weeks 15 and 16!
Easter event and more forum layout
Last week our easter event “Trial of the Slingers” started. Teach your young students and become the master of the slingers. How many eggs and shards have you gathered so far?
We also worked on two new designs for the forum layout after we received your feedback in the first devblog article. You can check them out here. What do you think about them? Give us your thoughts in the comments!
The updated to v2.136 took place this week. With this update, we implemented a community request: markers for incoming attack and support movements in the city drop-down list. This feature was already on mobile if you had an active administrator. It was about time we also implemented it in the browser version as well. But we decided to enable it for all players to have a more convenient game experience.
Furthermore, we took your feedback for island quest rewards into account and used this as an opportunity to work on the combination of some effects. Certain bonuses will not be stackable anymore which means they cannot be active at the same time. This applies especially to rare and epic effects as well as to Heightened and Divine Senses.
We also plan to integrate island quests into the normal quest log for a better overview. Therefore, the quest texts of island quests had to be shortened to fit into the smaller quest log layout. But we still keep their overall tonality and content.
Next version preview
We are concluding the work on sprint v2.137 this week.
Currently, the team is working on a community request to improve the way farming villages are generated on an island. Right now farming villages are randomly generated and islands could end up with 6 identical villages, which slows the player’s progression and looks like a bug to them. To change that, we want to avoid too many villages with identical trade options on one island. So we will limit the number of identical farming villages per island to 2.This will ensure that no more than 2 farming villages on an island can trade the same resources.
We will also continue with the island quest changes. As mentioned before we plan to integrate the island quests into the normal quest log to give the players a better overview. This is another feature that has been on mobile already and many players liked it. You will no longer have to switch to the map to accept an island quest. Instead, it will be possible to accept and finish the island quests directly in the city.
The current update schedule for v2.137 is as follows:
Tuesday, May 2nd: NL, SE and SK market
Wednesday, May 3rd: international roll-out
You can already test some of the aforementioned changes on our beta worlds. We are looking forward to hearing your feedback!
