Guild Battlegrounds

from The Forge of Empires team on 5/19/19 at 11:59 pm

Hello Queens and Kings,

In the past few months, we have been thinking about what to do with the current browser-only feature: Guild versus Guild (GvG). Since its release, we knew GvG was a very complex feature, in technical and usability terms. We know that this, along with its many issues and lack of scalability, has rendered GvG the one feature that is used by only a very few of you out there. Less than 5% of you are playing the feature, while for Guild Expeditions it is 10 times more. These numbers clearly show we can do better - our aim is to provide you with a more approachable, understandable and technically stable gaming experience. Forge of Empires has evolved over the last few years, as has the game team, and we want every feature in our game to be appealing to, and for, as many of you as possible.

With that in mind, we raised several questions that we would like to share with you to explain our next steps on how to improve the overall Guild gameplay experience. Read this and ALL about the new Guild Battlegrounds in our Forum HERE.

Looking forward to hearing your feedback!
Your Forge of Empires Team​

Virtual Future Part II

from The Forge of Empires team on 11/12/18 at 10:18 am

A lot has happened in the VR Network. A man called "Dr. Neurodeath" was tasked by one government to program new interfaces responsible for the routing processes within the VR network. Using a switch he secretly placed in the code allowed him to temporarily take control over the whole VR network. He used this moment of absolute power to overwrite owner certificates and header files, granting him a big share of all VR domains. From this moment on, "Dr. Neurodeath" was the Number One in the VR network. Throughout all his domains, he enforced weird laws and regulations, and some markets almost collapsed under the burden of his insanity.

The second part of the Virtual Future will be available on Wednesday, the 14th of November, after the Update to Version 1.139 takes place. Be sure to read all about it on our Forum HERE.

Reconstruction Mode

from The Forge of Empires team on 8/31/18 at 9:28 pm

Dear Queens and Kings,

The City is the central part of Forge of Empires. It is the core of your efforts and a visual representation of your progress and might. Over time, many players have managed to expand their cities to large metropolises. While they are great to look at, they are not so easy to manage. The tools we had in place to move buildings around work very well for small to medium-sized cities. However, as cities grew and the current average city size is far greater than a few years ago, it's become increasingly obvious that significant changes to very large cities are somewhat cumbersome to execute.

To solve this issue, we came up with a new mode that allows you to make large-scale changes much easier :). We have been checking its performance over the last few weeks.
Now, we are happy to announce that we will be making it available to all Forge of Empires players on Tuesday, 4th of September.

For a video on how Reconstruction Mode works and more information, read the post on the Forum HERE!

Your First Great Building - A Guide Questline For New Players

from The Forge of Empires team on 10/9/17 at 12:10 am

As you know, new players constantly join the community of Forge of Empires making it larger and stronger. However, we have noticed that some parts of the game are not always clear to everybody, so we would like to improve the way we explain them :). And we would like to begin with Great Buildings.

In order for this to happen, we will introduce a short questline that will be integrated into the early phase of the game. The questline (not abortable, like the main story line) will guide new players through the process of obtaining blueprints and leveling Great Buildings up. We will also introduce a new Great Building - Oracle of Delphi - that will serve as an example.

The questline, as well as the Great Building, will be a permanent feature of the game available from October 11th on.

Please note that the questline will not be shown to players who are farther down the tech-tree than mid-Iron Age. We made sure the Oracle of Delphi Great Building will be useful to Iron Age players, but not really that interesting for advanced users. If you're past mid-Iron Age and you are interested in building it in your city, keep in mind that the only way to get blueprints is by contributing to existing Oracles.

Yours,
The Forge of Empires Team

QUEST OVERVIEW

from The Forge of Empires team on 9/6/17 at 2:39 pm

Dear Queens and Kings,

Quests are one of the central parts of Forge of Empires. They lead players through the game and often determine their progress. The current system that we were using for the past five years has been great and worked well, but it had several restrictions that were always very limiting when it comes to what we could do with quests.
We sat down and thought about possible improvements to the way we show them and present them to you.
We came up with a new Quest Overview which should be able to display all of the needed information in an efficient way and provide the possibility for future expansion.

from The Forge of Empires team on 4/27/17 at 12:12 am

Dear Queens and Kings,

Do you still remember Hilde who organized the May Day festival last year? Time sure flies and she's back! This time she took her brother Halvard with her. Halvard knows a lot about maypoles, so if you help his sister have a May Day festival as good as the ones from her youth, he will surely reward you generously :).

Over the course of two weeks, from 27th of April to May 11th, Hilde will present you with a series of quests. There are 12 quests that you can do right away. Complete them and Halvard will grant you a new Maypole Upgrade item that you can use to upgrade your Maypole to a Mighty Maypole (2x3). Not to mention other goodies, like for example Renovation Kit.
Don't worry if you don't have a Maypole yet! You will get one right after completing the very first quest :).

Guild Expedition- New Rewards

from The Forge of Empires team on 2/12/17 at 11:18 am

Guild Expeditions are by now a well-established and popular feature of Forge of Empires. We've got some changes incoming (on Tuesday) that we think are pretty exciting. Read the Forum HERE for more information!

We have implemented new rewards!
There are new buildings as well as new consumable items.
What we were aiming for here was to introduce some rewards specific to Guild Expeditions, in much the same way as you can only get certain rewards from certain in-game events. We think that this can add more variety to the game, and also allows you to show off your Guild Expedition accomplishments better.

Venice Carnival Event

from The Forge of Empires team on 2/6/17 at 8:14 pm

Dear Kings and Queens,

Carnivals are rooted in an old tradition. The Carnival in Venice started as a festival in honor of the victory of the Republic of Venice against the Patriarch of Aquileia in the year 1162. The celebration changed and evolved over the years and was even banned for nearly two centuries before reaching its contemporary style.

On February 8th you have a chance to lose yourself in the colorful maelstrom that is the carnival of Venice. You will also assist a mysterious quest giver in finding love.
You will do so by offering roses to masked attendants of a ball. They may give you hearts in return. Use them wisely and get great rewards! You can enjoy the Venice Carnival till February 28th.

Summer Event is Coming!

from The Forge of Empires team on 7/27/16 at 9:25 am

Dear Kings and Queens,

Summer is here and that means Greva's Summer Casino will soon open for business again! This year she decided to go for a Polynesian theme: sun, sand and crystal clear water.

If you didn't have a chance to participate in our previous events, now you have an opportunity to compete with your neighbors to claim some of those old event items, as well as brand new Summer items.

The event starts on Wednesday, August 3rd, so you will soon be able to jump right into it! All the fun is of course also available via the mobile app.

To spin the Wheel of Fortune in the Summer Casino you need tickets, which Greva (and occasionally other advisers) is more than happy to help you with... in exchange for completing tasks, of course.

You have plenty of time, as the event will end on August 24th, but if you're advancing very quickly through the questline there are also a few bonus quests that will activate, which are more difficult and provide a slightly bigger challenge, for a chance at an extra ticket. THE EVENT WILL END ON AUGUST 24th. (NO EXTRA TURN IN DAYS.)

For a lot more information, go to the forum by clicking HERE!

Temple of Relics

from The Forge of Empires team on 7/16/16 at 5:52 pm

We've recently noticed that you'd very much like a boost to the personal rewards that you're getting in the Expeditions. While personal rewards are not really what the Guild Expeditions are about (the primary goal is helping your guild which in the end also makes the game easier for you), we've come up with something that will let you develop yourself more directly as well!

Let us present you: the Temple of Relics!

Temple of Relics is a new Great Building, with its functionality tied to the Guild Expeditions. The blueprints will be available starting on July, 21st, mid-day. Read all about it HERE.

Negotiation Game

from The Forge of Empires team on 6/11/16 at 12:13 pm

Dear Explorers!

As you remember, when we first introduced Guild Expeditions, we promised that we will also develop a peaceful way of solving encounters in the jungle.
Until now, the 'Negotiate' option when clicking an encounter has been padlocked. With the upcoming Expedition, starting on Tuesday, instead of battling your way through the unknown territory to eradicate evil invaders, you will also be able to trade with locals using your resources.

We proudly present - the Negotiation Game!

If you succeed and complete negotiations, they will let you through and you will solve your encounter with no fight whatsoever! This will not be the simple pay&go solution that you know from the single player campaign map. Instead, we will entertain you with a negotiation game where you will need both, luck and the power of your mind!

Hero's Tale

from The Forge of Empires team on 9/9/15 at 3:42 am

Beloved Audience!


It was the best of times, it was the worst of time, it was the age of barbarism, the epoch of belief. And unto this, a child was born by the name of An-War. Neither son of a king nor a god, fate had still chosen a unique path for the child.


Let a humble chronicler tell thee of his saga....


On 10th of September, a storyteller will visit your city and offer to tell you a story of a mighty hero named An-War. If you listen to the full tale, if you manage to complete all the 10 quests of the quest line, you will receive an exclusive reward.

There will be a short period of downtime during the update, we apologize for this little inconvenience.

Improvements

We have implemented two significant changes to the Hardware Acceleration feature. They should improve the game performance noticeably. The improvement should be particularly perceptible after an hour or two of playing.
The increasing memory usage when a city was left open for some time has been fixed.
Cache handling after visiting other cities has been redone. This should reduce the memory consumption even more.

Bugfixes

UI bugfixes
Player could have negative points shown visible next on the neighborhood bar.
Fixed various issues where unit health points were not updating correctly when healing.
City hall & Market - Fixed an issue where goods names that are too long were either cut off or left their allotted space.
Some missing translations in GvG have been added.
The Forge Points timer was sometimes overlapping the building menu.
Sell/Move/Cancel options were not always shown when the building menu is open.

Other bugfixes
In rare occasions it was possible to have no neighborhood.
Moving/Selling houses was not possible in first session, right after finishing the tutorial.
The game was not loading correctly if a Flash player was set to restrict size of the available local storage.
Fixed an issue where a Flash error could occur when closing the army management window.
Fixed an issue where a player could get stuck in battle.
Quest 'Dictator's Death' did not work exactly as in the quest's description.
Quest ‘A Little Helper’ did not recognize available tinplate after setting a trade.

Halloween is here, Let's all have some fun!

Hurry to solve them, While you still have time!

There's rewards and prizes all to be won,
Quick! Come claim them, Before they're all gone!

What's that? You say. Is that a phantom?
Don't be silly, it's just Jack O'Lantern!

Dear Kings and Queens,


One more time you will have a chance to meet the infamous Jack O'Lantern, a man of scare and distaste! Your pumpkin-headed guest will come to your city on 22nd of October and will remain there till the 5th of November. Not surprisingly, the spooky quest giver will challenge you with a series of riddles for you to solve... Do not fear though! Jack O'Lantern is mysterious, yet in fact very friendly and generous creature and he will reward you in adequately unusual way if you manage to solve all the riddles on time.
And he will reveal his real identity, too!


Good luck with solving the riddles!

The first person to post the correct picture wins an iPad Air!
