Hi All,

With the awesome influx of new players into illy, I've had a few suggestions come my way.  One came out of the excellent new player strategy podcast, and the other from a new player.

We've now implemented three suggestions, and they're live.

Effective, immediately:

  1. Caravans sent to a player under rainbow protection now automatically move at twice their usual speed.
  2. We've changed the storage capacity of the first three levels of the Storehouse, as follows:

Storehouse Level

Old Capacity

New Capacity

Level 1

750

1000

Level 2

975

1200

Level 3

1267

1400

Level 4

1647

Same (1647)

     3. The Merchants Guild research has been reduced from 2days to 2 hours.


Many thanks, hope this helps.

Regards,

SC

I completely agree with Rill here, this will make newb caravans a lot quicker and will help speed up our ninja caravans. However, one thing that I hope will either not be implemented or this bonus won't work with it, is if rainbows were purchasable either will real money or with prestige. Now, I'm not disagreeing with the update; I think it is an amazing idea introduced solely to help newer players. What I don't want though, is people getting quicker caravans through something only meant to help new players, not those with truckloads of money to blow on this awesome game (I would be that guy). I hope you understand my point of view, but I am LOVING the updates recently!

No, rainbows will never be purchasable.  This is designed solely to give new players to the game a greater boost in their first 7 days.

Best,

Hi all,

One other change I meant to make at the same time.

The Merchants' Guild research was previously a 2 day research for reasons lost in the mists of time.

It has now been changed to a 2 hour research, effective immediately.

Those players who were researching Merchants Guild have had their research autocompleted.

Many thanks,

SC

Merchants? Is that the same as traders? If so, mine are still taking 6-7 days to complete.

Also...When are the lakes to change so we can claim sovereignty and fish? All of mine still say that I can't claim sovereignty there.

Thanks...Smile Dragonwort


UPDATE: Sorry, reread the thread and see that you are dealing with the guild building itself and NOT the traders..Hey....a person can hope...lol..DW

I think this was needed. And, I was wondering about the old 2day research time. That's 1 day and 22 hours of research I won't get back in any of my towns...
