Dear Grepolis Players, welcome to another community update. This time, we will mention some cool new features already available on our testing servers.
Attack screen changes
With version 2.185, we will add to the game a new, reworked attack window. It will make it possible to send attacks with different settings.
Types of attack
Types of attack are important for the worlds with Revolt command setting. On those worlds you can choose if you want to just send a regular attack, or one that will attempt to stir a revolt in the city.
The strategies are modifiers to how the battle is fought. They will only show up in the attack screen, if you completed corresponding researches. When sending an attack you can choose to use:
- Breakthrough – enables your ships to enter a formation that allows transport ships to reach the shores safer, but at the same time your combat ships will be 50% less effective in fighting enemy army.
- Stone Hail – allows your catapults to damage a random building in addition to the city wall (except for special buildings).
Spells available to use when sending an attack will depend on the gods you worship in your cities. If you do not have enough favor of one of the gods, the spell will not be possible to selects. Otherwise, you can choose one spell that will be cast immediately when sending the attack:
- Heroic power (Athena).
- Return from the underworld (Hades)
- Helmet of invisibility (Hades)
- Favorable winds (Zeus)
- Aim of the Huntress (Artemis).
The biggest feature we worked on for the last few months is Gold Exchange – a centralized system where players will be able to buy and sell resources in exchange for Gold, which will replace current Gold Trading system. Thanks to Gold Exchange, players no longer will be reliant on others when it comes to buying resources. Additionally, we hope that this feature, will provide our non-paying users with more chances to get earn some free Gold.
If our new Gold Exchange seems somehow familiar to you, you probably have seen it before in a different game. We inspired our Gold Exchange feature on a system already available in another game developed by InnoGames, our ‘older brother’ – Tribal Wars. Tribal Wars’ Premium Exchange system is very popular among players and we hope Grepolis players will also learn to appreciate it.
More details on Gold Exchange system you will find on our wiki page. As it is already available on our beta servers, do not forge to to check it out. We are very excited to know how you feel about this new feature!
What is coming next?
As the spring is finally approaching our office in Hamburg, we are working on some small fixes to our upcoming event – Mythical Hen. Stay tuned for the next updates!
