New community suggestions to come!

Avatar

Some weeks ago we got a bunch of community requests from all over the world. Thanks for all these interesting suggestions. We want to implement as many as we can, so we estimated the effort for the most easiest ones in terms of concept and implementation effort. I will give you a short update about the suggestions we already implemented and you will see in the next updates.

New item slots for the inventory

Multiple markets requested additional item slots for the inventory. We decided to add 10 more slots, five for free and five for premium. The additional five premium slots will cost 100 Gold each, instead of 50 Gold for the first five slots.
As the old design would not support 10 more slots, we had to come up with a new layout.

If you have items in the extended inventory (e.g. through buying item bundles in the shop or through Artemisia’s rewards), the window will increase itself and will display the extended inventory below the normal 2 rows. It will no longer be scrollable horizontally but now vertically.

Farm village travel time display

With the new update you will see the travel time and arrival time in the attack window for farm villages. Just add the units you want to attack with and you will see the arrival time and travel time next to the attack button as we have it also in our normal attack windows.

Battle points in the player profile

Currently we only display the player rank and the corresponding points in the profile. As with the next update we also display the battle points and the corresponding rank.

Award for players that played until the end of a world

We will introduce a new award “Last man standing” to the game. You will get this award when a world gets closed (that will happen automatically as soon as the world is assessed for inactivity). You need to have at least one town on the world to be able to get this award.

That’s it for now. Currently we are working on an extended notepad, that will allow you to create up to 5 different notes per world.
We are always open for feedback in any kind, so feel free to comment!

    Appreciate the extra inventory slots. I have 10 now and even those seem to fill up way too fast.

    Thanks for the hard work. Good to see that the requests from the Grep Gaming Community are being implemented

    When Trading Gold will be launched on a live world. You have tested it on beta for four months…

    • Avatar Tobias Winter says:

      We are currently testing “Gold trading” on different live markets. This feature will probably have a high impact on the game balance and therefore we need more time for testing and adjustments. At the moment I cannot say when or if it’s going to be released worldwide.

    Where are you testing (more exactly, please)?

    How will you transfer the old premium slots to the new bigger inventory. For example, someone has two premium slots for 100 Gold buying some times ago.
    Would he had after the conversion 10 normal and 2 premium slots per 50 Gold?

    • Avatar Tobias Winter says:

      Yes, it will behave exactly how you described it. You will keep all premium slots you have already unlocked before. In your example, the player would have 10 normal + 2 premium slots.

      • Avatar Emilio says:

        Seeing the picture above it seems that the fist 5 premium slots cost 50, and the additional 5 cost 100. but now yo say a different thing, that all will cost 100, so our five spots will be reduced to 2, but are you going to give the additional 50 coins back? Or is as the picture says.

        • Avatar Tobias Winter says:

          No, I did not say that all slots will cost 100. The first 5 premium slots still cost 50 Gold each and the second 5 premium slots will cost 100 Gold each.

    When will the changes to the inventory slots be implemented on US servers? It’s a little disheartening to see it first here on your list while being the only one left out of the most recent update.

    • Avatar Tobias Winter says:

      Hi William,
      We are not excluding the US market from any updates. The inventory slot extention is not live on any market yet. We have to wait until the new app version, with the new inventory, got approved. We currently expect to release this version in the second week of January 2015.
