Community update: week 15 & 16

Dear community,

Welcome to our bi-weekly community update.

This time we will bring you a summary on the last two weeks and a short preview on the upcoming changes.

Player Council – candidates

The time to submit candidacies for the second term of the Grepolis Player Council has come to an end. We are now preparing for the elections on the language versions which had valid candidates. The in-game voting is currently scheduled to take place starting April 27, 2018.

v2.161

Browser version 2.161 was released on Tuesday, April 17 and Wednesday, April 18. The mobile version is still pending approval and will be released once both Android and iOS versions can be published in the respective stores, probably later this week.

In this version we added the possibility to deactivate tutorial arrows directly from the main user interface, for the more experienced players. Furthermore, we added highlight animations for the spells casted in the game and changed the order of the list items showing candidates for the upcoming player council elections. The update introduced also a few small bugfixes.

Next version preview – v2.162

This time the update focused on some community suggested features: display of the exact time when services of Advisors will end, a confirmation window informing about the loss of mythical units while changing gods and sorting functionality in the council of heroes. Part of the update includes a lot of technical changes connected to the upcoming event as well as a new hero – Ajax.

The update will take place on Wednesday, May 2.

      Hi Buffysara!
      Yes, I am the new LCM – you are very observant. 🙂 My name is Anna, I come from Poland and I have been working for InnoGames for almost 5 years. In the future you will see more posts written by me on this DevBlog so see you soon!

        Well, we all liked Steffi very much and would rather keep her. But sometimes that is not possible and unfortunately you have to say goodbye!

        So: Good bye Steffi!

        Anna: See you soon in German Forum. We are wanted to wait for your Grepolis Team Potrait there.

        • Steffi Steffi says:

          I’m not entirely gone yet, I’ll say my farewells when the day comes. 😉

          Until then: Anna is unfortunately not fluid in German, so she likely won’t be roaming around the German forums often, but that is up to her to decide. We still have Faey to cover all the rest and they sit next to each other. :p

    I know it’s a longtime the wiki’s been updated but I just wonder the new skin isn’t still mobile responsive even though there are developed free responsive skins. I’ve tried Tweeki and it’s fantastic. It allows to create 3 (dropdown!!!) menu which is really missing on the wiki. (you know that really loooooooooooooooooooong scrolling down) It’s also customizable via own style extension, so… why not?

    • Steffi Steffi says:

      Thanks for putting that suggestion forward. Third party websites and skins always need to be checked for compatibility, especially in regards to our high security standards, but I’ll put that skin suggestion forward as it seems to look very mobile friendly. 😉
