Hello, fellow gods! Lots of exciting news today. Let’s start off with guilds.
After long begging Godville Times editors gave up and agreed to add a whole new section dedicated to guilds. Every day it will feature two guilds, randomly selected from Top-100 of all guild pantheons. Obviously, having a guild included in more than one pantheon increases its chances to appear. By the way, Famous Heroes newspaper section works in a similar way, only requiring heroes to be in Top-200.
On Guild Leaving
It is known that heroes tend to leave a guild during first few months of membership. However, years of continuous training are finally bearing a fruit – the heroes will stop fleeing from guild 1.5 months earlier, once they achieve Grandmaster guild rank. Btw, did you know that if a hero’s alignment is similar to the guild’s alignment he is less likely to leave the guild?
Keep in mind though that godless heroes will still be expelled from guilds after 30 days of inactivity, regardless of their guild rank. The nice change here is that from now on Godville’s postal service will send one-time warning email few days before expelling. Only if you have a recovery email for your account, of course (can be set on Settings screen within the app).
It was suddenly noticed that Godville heroes are not some perishable item. Their shelf-life is measured in years and it’s worth to keep track of heroes’ birthdays. Now guildmates can see in the Guild Bulletin who were born today (if any), so they can congratulate them. By the way, the heroes will get a present too – on their birthday all drinks and partying are free!
One needs to get dozens of Spars with friends to get the Coach achievement and the further you go the harder it gets to keep these records in mind. From now on, the Sparring partner selection list will mark those friends that you already trained with (please install today’s app update if playing on Android). Hooray.
Last but not least, let’s talk about our lovely pets. It turned out that some monster species are quite amphibious and can lend heroes their paw, fin or limb in sails. Landsharks will accompany heroes starting from level 80. Higher level heroes will be able to tame a Ticking Crocodile, OctoBear, Battle Toad, Presidential Seal and even a Fail Whale. Sea pets will help in sails by peeking into distance and helping to explore islands.
