Grepolis Thracian Conquest- You don’t know what that means? Check out the next spot! Hello Grepolis community! I am Marcel, a Game Designer of Grepolis. Pretty soon the time will come for a new in-game event. But it will be quite different,
as it is all about a war. Tenia, a leader of Thracian units, will offer to lead your army of mercenaries into
combat. The Thracian realm is overrun by insurgents who terrorize the people of
Thrace. It is your task to fight the rebels to unite and free the oppressed populace. Thrace will be displayed as an epic campaign map, spanning over 60 different
battlegrounds. You will fight your way from battleground to battleground by
commanding your mercenaries to attack. These mercenaries are completely new units which are unique for the event. If you choose to attack a battleground, you will see the stationed rebels, as well as
your available mercenaries. On each battleground the number of mercenaries you can
deploy is limited, so you will have to make tactical decisions about which units you
will use and how many. Each unit has its strengths and weaknesses against specific units and therefore you really have to plan your attack. Should you be victorious, you will win a unique reward tied to the specific
battleground. On top of that, you will be eligible to move on to the next battleground. The defeated battleground will be on cooldown for some time, after which you can
attack and win the reward again, although there will be more enemies than before. Another noteworthy feature is that, even if you suffer a defeat, the enemy’s losses are
permanent, which means you will eventually whittle down the opposition and secure the battleground after several attacks. Your mercenaries on the other hand won’t die, they just get wounded and have to recover. During that time, you cannot use them for another attack, but every 7 hours a healer will arrive to tend to your injured troops and make them fit for combat again. Even the mighty hero Hercules decided to travel to Thrace and help the people. In combat, you may call for his help which will boost the combat power of your units by
20%. Keep in mind though that Hercules will need to rest 12 hours after he has been involved in a battle. The campaign map is full of surprises. Sometimes, the paths may even split up and you may decide which path to take in order to proceed. You may even uncover some secrets to make your mercenaries more powerful than ever before. By the way, in case you have asked yourself how to get new mercenaries and to increase the size of your army, here is the answer: You just have to perform common activities in the game and your people might randomly encounter a group of 8 to 12 mercenaries who will then join your Thracian army. You can find up to 10 of these groups per day. The event called “The Thracian Conquest” will start at the end of July, so stay tuned for a full 4 weeks of epic battles! Good bye! Already saved a princess today? Tribal Wars rescue the royalty event is still ongoing. Check out everything you need to know! Hey guys I’m Robert the Product Manager of Tribal Wars. In our next event, members of the royal family have been kidnapped and hidden by monsters in caves all through the land. If you manage to rescue them, you will be able to reap the benefits of their gratitude. You first step is to find out more about these monsters, who were hidden in caves over the map. There are several types of monsters and each of them is weak to one specific unit. We’ve gone ahead and already scouted one of these caves. Once you know what you are up against it’s time to figure out how to defeat it. It turns out that what is guarding this one is an elephant. Select the unit from among your soldiers and send them to the battle against the kidnapper. We are going to send a swordsman. A swordsman against cavalry, what could go wrong? Unfortunately sending a swordsman against an elephant was probably not the best idea, a spearman would be more efficient in that case. We are not going to tell you the weaknesses of all the monsters, it’s part of the event for you to discover, but if you select your hero successfully, he will rescue the member of the royalty. After performing a successful rescue you can now make use of the royalties’ skills to improve your empire. Each member of the royalty has different abilities and they have various skill levels as well. Normally you would only be able to see what a particular royalty is good at after they already started providing their services. But once in a while you get a chance to identify the royalty beforehand. This lets you know what you activate in advance, which helps you plan or make sure you only activate the best of the best. You can also identify members of the royal family for premium. Once you found a member of the royal family that you are particularly happy with, you can use resources to upgrade their services and make them stick around for a while longer. The event is already active in the game so you can go and check it out. It’s going to run for four weeks and we hope you will all enjoy it. You can go and hunt some monsters and rescue the royalty. And now it’s time to find out what we did behind those gates. After 14 hours of flight from Hamburg to Los Angeles, the InnoGames crew arrived just in time at the Los Angeles convention center. Here a massive crowd of journalists, professionals and game fans already waited to see the newest gaming titles. All in all over 45,000 video game industry professionals from more than 100 countries attended the three days long Expo. Like every year, all big companies we there to present their newest games, hardware and brands. On most of the booths the visitors were also be able to actually try out the new games. No question that InnoGames also had it’s own boot with a special guest: Bruce Shelley, game design legend and responsible for titles like civilization and age of empires works as a consultant for Rising Generals, the newest InnoGames title. I guess I’m another voice in terms of game developing teams you all work together and there is not a lot of outside input so I come from a different world in a sense and I play the game as a player and I have questions and I think I understand that the guys think that helps a little bit to have a different viewpoint looking at the game. I think it comes a long long way. When I first played it there were a lot pieces that weren’t not there and I was confused and I had troubles understanding how things supposed to work and there were no story that I understood so I had a lot of confusions when I started but I think it’s all coming clear now. The latest builds that I’m playing are much more complete lots of stuff I’m reading about for a long time are now actually playable so I think the game has really good chance to be very successful. After three days of presentations we were really tired but happy to see that everyone who saw Rising Generals for the first time gave us extremely positive feedback. Of course we will attend the E3 2015 but who knows which game we will show there. That’s it from InnoGames for this month! Don’t forget to subscribe and stay tuned!

    Everybody hates you for your Tribal Wars beta invitations strategy… instead giving keys to ppl who pre-registered long ago, you give them to some random people who guess your shitty puzzles… shame

    Most people are angry because they didn't get a betakey. At the end of the day Tribalwars can give it's game keys out however they like. And this is coming from someone that pre-registered 6 months ago and still didn't get a key either.

    Hey Innogames! Thanks for delaying our FoE update for your Ipad update. People without iPads everywhere thank you.

  • Reply Rex Hayward July 3, 2014 at 2:10 am

    hahahaha gotta laugh..you want more on the beta site to give you feedback..?16k players now of FOE isnt enough..you dont listen to them and you want more to ignore..update after update you are told there are bugs in buildings or stuff you wish to implement..and not one is addressed..latest being the hall of fame debacle..then you wait till it is bought and paid for then comes the oh dear we didnt know we had better nerf it and rip off the paying customer again..yet the beta site was screaming at you telling you it was flawed..oh yes you did offer 1000 cups or 300 if gotten from chest..wow it shouldnt matter where it was bought from they still bought the diamonds to do it.
    maybe you shpould concentrate on fixing the problems before implementing new problems..and start taking notice of those that spend there time on your beta site..listen instead of looking to get more to ignore

    I never got a key and I have been playing TW1 for a long time and registered for TW2 immediately when it was possible to do so. Inno is just scamming us, they said that we would get a key and we didnt. So now we let them sell our email addresses and didnt get anything out of it.

    Hi inno
    thanks you for make FOE more and more impossible to play.
    First you never fix the memory leaks.
    Then you change the GB values and make a promise to compensate the players. Ok they loose 60% and you give them 3%. But, first they need to wait until the version of iPad be released.
    Now in beta server, you force the players to use the hardware acceleration. AND YOU KNOW THIS IS NOT WORKING.
    Thanks inno for demonstrate that you don't want us to play your game
