Pantheons: Unlimited Edition

RSS
Godville, May 27 2012

Pantheons have been in the game since the early days and haven’t really changed a lot, so it’s time to shake them up! The pantheons have been reorganized into 3 big groups. “Short-term” pantheons only include players that have been active during the last five days, and have no hard limits. This should be especially interesting for the newcomers, as they will finally see some pantheon positions right away, instead of those depressing dashes. “Long-term” pantheons list all players and, due to the size limits, are much harder to get in, but once you do it should be more pleasing.

The third group is for guilds. Aside from the old Unity pantheon with its tricky ratings, this group now features two new pantheons: the pantheon of Popularity, which shows how famous the guilds are in the Godville towns, and the pantheon of Aggressiveness, which ranks guilds based on their duel accomplishments.

The new pantheon of Mastery shows how good your hero’s skills and equipment are compared to those of others. The Construction pantheon underwent some renovation as well. The gods with completed temples have been respectfully moved to their very own, newly created long-term pantheon of Templehood, boosting up the ratings for soon-to-be temple owners.

As the total number of pantheons has increased, so did the clutter in the pantheon snippet. To address this issue, the pantheons in which the hero has no active places are no longer shown on the hero and personal pages.

In PvP-related news, arena fights are now guaranteed to postpone skirmishes for at least 3 days. All duel fights now have a special link, which can be used to the share the duel chronicle with other gods. We’ve come up with at least 4 ways of using it and wonder how many uses you will find for it!

As you might have noticed, heroes have started to hear more interesting god voices in the last few weeks. Here is the next change in this area: highly-rated god voices will spread wider and may even bring some reward to their authors. So write thoughtfully, vote wisely and everyone will be happy!

Besides these new measures, there are a few more nice little features in this update, but we’ll leave it to you to discover and share them with others in the comments below.

I dont like the construction pantheon change. When I finally worked my way onto the list I had about 200 bricks…. Now the newcomers get 1 brick and suddenly they get a place? Way to take the hard work out of an achievement!

Nice update devs though I personally prefer to see all pantheons all the time. Maybe make it an option for how you view them? Especially for the ios app because the open all pantheons page shows up really small and hard to see on a small screen. On a more upbeat note I like how you now see how many days remaining till your next guild rank up when you check your hero page (at least on ios app can’t say for anything else). It is cool to know excactly where you are at with those and not have it a surprise when you rank up.

Most of the updates I like very much, like the new pantheons (gives you something more to aim for), and the mini-quests. But: the boss monsters at the end of the mini-quests are way overpowered and it’s really annoying that I cannot see all the pantheons anymore. Seeing a – being replaced with a number is much more satisfying then a new pantheon popping up. Also, it’s easier to see which pantheons you aren’t in yet. Another think I really like, by the way, is the guild council. It maybe would be nice if we had something like that for our friend list? One question: you say the short-term pantheons are for players who’ve been active for five days. Does that mean I will be kicked out of i.e. Construction when I’m unable to check in for a week?

I also prefer to see all the pantheons, then you have an idea of other goals to strive for. And I liked having the +/- to show my movement on the list. I like the new ones that have been added, but I miss the old way of viewing it.

Does the Aggressiveness pantheon only count duel wins for each guild and not losses?

It certainly seems interesting,gods who have never been to the top 10 might actually have a chance.

There is a lot of opinions out there about the new changes, but all I want to say us a big thank you to the developers for keeping the game fresh. You guys are doing a great job!
