Much Faster Search
It is well known that once a deity returns from a long absence, they’re welcomed with a search screen while the game searches for the hero. Apparently, this screen could have been up a minute or more, which is clearly not what was anticipated. After a couple weeks of optimizations this process has been greatly sped up, so now it finds the hero within few seconds. It’s been like for the past few weeks and we hope you like it as much as we do.
It’s time to stir up stalling sea waters with a small storm. From now on, there will be much more variety in sails: the aspiring captains will get a quick update on the current sailing conditions at beginning of the voyage. Some of them could be favorable (like doubled treasure or more lighthouses) and some could be less so (e.g. a requirement to exit through port). There about a dozen of these new conditions, which btw can also be combined within one sail, making it all even more exciting.
It’s known that sometimes our wayward heroes try to change guilds on their own, especially if the guild is crowded. From now on, the champions will also pay attention to the guild’s alignment and stay longer if it matches with theirs.
Quick reminder: heroes stop trying to leave the guild upon reaching the Cardinal guild rank (though a hero will still be expelled from the guild if their god leaves them unattended for a month or more).
Godville iOS app has recently been nicely updated with 3D Touch, Quick Action and iOS 10 support. Since 3D Touch could be not obvious to discover, we thought it will be useful to let you know how handy it is to quickly peek into dungeon
afk ally stats or seeing the full sail log while on the map (it works in few other places too).
Finally, hundreds of new content items have been added into the game, thanks to the community contributions and great work in ER.
