    Changelog 2.160


    Dear Community,

    On Wednesday April 4, 2018 Grepolis will be updated to version 2.160. As always there will be a short downtime while the update is applied.

    Summary

    • Battle point calculations were adjusted in order to reduce battle points granted for defeating units of alliance members and removing battle points for killing owned units altogether.
    • Wheel of fortune events now show the chances of winning items directly on the wheel.
    • The game options were expanded to be able to disable warnings about attacking members of your own alliance.
    • Medea and Telemachos were rebalanced slightly and now get a higher increase for their bonus effects with each level-up.
    New Features and Changes

    • Battle point calculations for both defending and attacking were adjusted to make attacks on friendly units less attractive to farm battle points.
      • Successful defeat of units in the players posession generates 0 battle points.
      • Defeated alliance or pact members' units generate 20% of the total possible battle points for all units killed. In case of this resulting in decimal numbers, battle points get rounded.
      • Battle reports will display an info icon with more information on the specifics:

    • Tired of confirming that you would like to engage in an attack on your fellow alliance members? It is now possible to disable confirmation prompts about attacking your own alliance members from the game options.

    • All events with a Wheel of Fortune now show probabilities of winning a specific reward directly in the user interface, so you can easily tell how high your chances are of getting the most valuable rewards.

    • Medea's and Telemacho's bonus effect values were adjusted. They now each increase by +1.5% per hero level gained (was: 1%).
    Bugfixes

    • Recruitment - Fixed a rare error which could get caused when instantly finishing a recruitment of colony ships, resulting in no ship to be granted.
    • Agora - Removed an extra space between the current city count, the separator and the overall possible city count in the agora.
    • Event/Sale icons - The timer was displayed with gaps and the glow around the icon was off.
    • Mythical Hen - A java script error could lead to the event window not loading.
    • Mythical Hen - A discrepancy between population values of effects in the recipe book and crafted ones has been fixed.

    We hope you enjoy the update and would love to hear any feedback you have.


    Best regards,
    Your Grepolis Team

    This is not fair imo. I attacked a ghost city and got 204 bp. instead of 1k bp. how is tht gonna be attractive taking ghost or inactive players?? before the enemy takes it??
    what are you guys thinking. if you want to stop players generate bp buy supporting a player and attacking them think of another way to do it![​IMG]

    THAT explains this. But I really don't understand. When a teammate goes inactive, we are now being punished for it?????
    This isn't right at all!

    How will I know the percent of what I killed now? You could judge that based on the bp you earned. Now you take that away too.

    If I get no BP for killing my own troops, I should not be able to kill them. We should be able to delete our units.
    Just started and quit a new world because this technique is the only way to farm BP early in game. Eventually, most cities on spawn island ghost, and only fliers can other players without a sizable navy. This decision will further kill this game, by cutting new players from a source of growth.

    This can be said about using BP for farming villages in general. It reduces team work, slows smaller players, and if you end up in a quieter area, really stunts your growth. Instead of having the BP to run victory parades to open a slot, we need to spend them on building farm villages to get the resources we need. And a group from an alliance can no longer share the pain of building the villages for everyone's benefit. And you benefited from previous players building the villages up when you took a city.

    It would be nice to have something like the old resource based building and sharing as an alternative to just the BP system.

    How does this system apply to ghost cities/inactive members?

    I can see the pain for some players on BP. Although, I am glad that it was implemented.

    Actual troops/boats that belong to the ghost I believe you get the points for, are you sure those troops did not belong to someone in your alliance instead? Because that 204 would be 20% like the change log states.

    Simple, you kick out the inactive player to get full bp points off of their troops/boats.
