    Changelog Version 8.137

    Dear community,

    it has been quite a while since we had a public changelog. But that doesn't mean that we haven't been busy working on the game! Since the beginning of the year the development team resolved 378 tasks. Upon those were 85 bugs which we fixed in the recent months. These ranged from account related issues like players being unable to verify their account, restart on a world or change their username to bigger issues like flags not being properly withdrawn from villages, commands arriving in the wrong order players not getting achievements.

    We also worked hard on improvements of our backend infrastructure. For example we implemented a new Push Notification system, to send push notifications more reliably to your mobile devices and be able to track down issues more efficiently. We of course also worked on frontend issues like missing translations or formatting/spacing issues. And last but not least implemented smaller quality of life improvements in several places. For example we made it easier for you to do certain actions, like being easily able to select all villages in the troop request screen. Or we now warn you if certain actions in the game would have automatic consequences; like your troops withdrawing from villages when you leave a tribe. We also continued to work on measures to fight cheating in the game and implemented detections for several popular scripts and bots. We also worked on improving our Android app. We fixed bugs, improved the usability, stability and implemented missing features. And while the app has already improved significantly over the last few months we kill keep working to make sure that you can play Tribal Wars on the go without any issues.

    While most of these are smaller changes that are not that obvious, your certainly have seen our bigger changes to the game. We reworked our "Beast of the Black Mountain", "Traveling Merchant" and "Spectaculum" events. We also developed a Server Merge technology to allow our players from smaller language versions to continue playing Tribal Wars on this international version in their own language. Just recently we also released a completely new endgame condition, called "The Great Siege". It is already live on beta (check it out!) and we are very much looking forward to getting it into your hands soon on world 103!

    With Tribal Wars turning 15 years this year we would like to thank you for your continued support. Without you we wouldn't have reached this amazing milestone! Your dedication is what allows us to continue working on and improving the game. We are looking forward to the years to come!

    Best regards
    The Tribal Wars Team

    It's love, not just a game!



    Changes and Improvements

    Scout Info in Simulator
    The simulator now shows an overview on which information scouts will be able to reveal.

    [​IMG]

    Dynamic Group Filters for Resources
    Dynamic groups now allow to filter for available resources by fixed amount as well as percentage.

    [​IMG]

    Top Kills Badges
    We added tracking for the top kills as a supporter. We added art for the badges for top kills as supporter, attacker and defender. The later two were already tracked for a while but lacked an icon. These badges can be gained retroactively, but only for worlds which closed after the tracking of this statistic was implemented.

    [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Incoming Attacks Player Name Filter
    Filtering for player names in the incoming attacks overview now uses an auto-completion. To filter for a player you only need to write parts of the name, the results will automatically be filtered for these.

    Auto-Completion Performance Improvements
    We also improved the performance of the player name auto-completion feature in other screens of the game. Filtering for player names should now be much faster everywhere.

    Reports Sorting in Village Info Screen
    The village info screen now sorts reports by the report creation date. Old forwarded reports will no longer show on top.

    Village Info Pop-Up improvement
    The village pop-up on the map now includes the loyality and wall level of that village.

    [​IMG]

    Push Notification for Tribe Quests
    When a tribe gets a new tribe quest, the tribe members will receive a push notification.

    Player Names in Reports
    All instances of player names in reports now link to the player profile.

    Past Contacts
    When a world is closed, tribe members will be automatically added as past contacts, making it easier to invite them to a new world.

    Scavenging Sitting Restriction
    Sitters can now be restricted from using the Scavenging feature.

    Feedback

    And that's it! These are the changes which were implemented with version 8.137.
    If you have any feedback for us, please let us know in this thread. We are looking forward to hearing from you!

    Update to version 8.140/8.141

    Dear community,

    Our new update to version 8.141 will be released on Monday the 10th of September around 14:00 CEST. This update mainly brings a few changes to the sitter restrictions and the endgame process of Casual Worlds.

    Changes and Improvements

    Sitter Access to Inventories
    Sitters can now be restricted to no longer be able to use inventory items on the sat account.

    Permanent Sitter Restrictions (included in 8.140)
    The restrictions to no longer be able to send attacks, supports or execute certain other commands on permanently sat accounts now apply to all villages, not only other player and barbarian villages.

    Furthermore, accounts that are being sat too long can now also be restricted to use the Scavenging feature. This option has been enabled automatically on all worlds, for permanently sat accounts, on which the 'attack enemy players'-option is ticked.

    Faster Casual Endgame
    The steps of opening up the attack protection of the Casual Worlds have been increased, speeding up the endgame and allowing players to attack earlier. This new system will only be active on Casual Worlds that will be launched after this update.

    Casual Endgame Screen
    Casual Worlds now have an information screen in the rankings informing about the schedule and changes of the automated casual endgame.

    Item Transfer to Casual Worlds
    The items "Flamboyant Speech" and "Prestigious Resource Package" can no longer be transferred to Casual Worlds.

    Simulator Cap
    To avoid calculating issues the simulator now has a unit cap of 999,999,999,999 which should be sufficient to simulate any possible battle.

    Feedback

    These are the changes for version 8.141!

    Please keep in mind that the servers might be unavailable during the update for a short period of time.
    In case of any delays or additional changes we will update this post accordingly.

    Casual Endgame Screen
    Casual worlds now also feature an endgame screen which lists the dates on which the attack block and/or other settings are changed.

    Update to version 8.144

    Dear Community,

    Our new update to version 8.144 will be released on monday, October 15.
    Most of the changes are improvements to our backend infrastructure but there are two small changes we would like to inform you about.

    Changes and Improvements

    Report Player Profile Images
    You can now report player profile images separately from the player profile, so even when no custom player profile is set up.

    In a day Ranking
    The In A Day rankings are now sorted by the time a player achieved the score. When several players managed to get the same score the one achieving it earlier will be placed on top.

    Update to version 8.145

    Dear Community,

    Our new update to version 8.145 will be released on Monday, October 22.
    Among other changes this version brings some improvements for the "The Great Siege" endgame.

    Changes and Improvements

    Great Siege: Adjusted return time
    Units traveling back from districts now have the same travel time as when traveling to the district.

    Great Siege: Adjusted commands time from districts
    Units attacking other villages from a district now always have the same travel time, unless the target is further away than 15 fields (3 fields for scouts). Then the actual traveling time is used.

    Bugfixes

    Great Siege: Abandoned districts
    If a district is abandoned it will no longer be renamed to "barbarian village".

    Update to version 8.150


    Dear Community,
    Our new update to version 8.150 will be released on Monday, December 3.
    Among other changes this version brings changes to our endgames, automating player rewards and achievements when a world ends.

    Changes and Improvements

    Endgame changes
    From version 8.150 onward the tribes will be locked and rankings frozen as soon as the winning condition is reached. The top players and tribe will be automatically awarded with Premium Points and the respective badges/achievements. To allow for this change to happen the endgame peace time will be removed from the Domination winning condition. Worlds which are currently in peace will be closed when the new update is applied.

    Quest Text Improvements
    We reworked several quest texts, making it clearer what the goal of the quest is and how it can be achieved.

    Loot Assistant Visibility
    As new players had problems finding the Loot Assistant made sure it is clearly indicated in the tutorial. Additionally the Loot Assistant button now has a glowing effect hovering effect as well as a tool-tip.

    Update to version 8.152

    Dear Community,

    Our new update to version 8.152 will be released on Monday, December 17.
    This version brings some minor bugfixes, a new tutorial quest and changes to the relocation item.

    Changes and Improvements

    Relocation Item
    We simplified the system by which you get the relocation item. Now all players starting on a normal world (which allows for players to choose their starting location) will receive a free relocation item which has to be used within 48 hours divided by world speed (so speed 2 means that the item has to be consumed within 24 hours).

    This also applies to invites, restarts and users who join during pre-registration.

    New Tutorial Quest
    As Tribal Wars features several possible endgame conditions we added a short tutorial quest to check out the endgame screen, to get an overview on the conditions required on the world you are playing on.

    Quest Highlights
    In the construction screen the buttons for buildings which are part of an active quest are now being highlighted

    Casual Domination
    The domination endgame triggering on casual worlds now has a 14 days holding period. (This might not apply to casual worlds which started before the update to version 8.152)

    Bugfixes


    Watchtower Icons
    (reported on Tribal Wars International)
    Renaming a command detected by the Watchtower no longer adds additional "eye" icons to it.

    Tribe Management on Mobile Browser
    We fixed an issue with the checkboxes for managing tribe member permissions on the mobile browser version not showing up.

    Update to version 8.154

    Dear Community,
    Our new update to version 8.154 will be released on Tuesday, January 22nd.
    Next to some bugfixes this version brings a change to the account sitting system, improvements to the troop templates, a new resource request option in the market and other improvements.

    Changes and Improvements

    Account Sitting
    Due to ongoing issues with the Account Sitting system we have decided to limit the amount of accounts which can be sat by a player to three. Players who are currently sitting more than three accounts will not be able to accept additional accounts, until they have the reduced the amount below the limit.

    Troop Templates
    Troop templates now allow you to send all units of specific type by selecting the "All" option. Additionally you can now send all units of a type, minus a specific amount. This amount reamining in the villages can be defined by a minus sign.
    [​IMG]

    Scavenging Unlock Times
    Unlocking the Scavenging options now shows the time remaining until when the required resources become available

    Market Requests
    The market now has a "Request" feature, which allows you to request resources from all your villages, according to configurable templates.
    [​IMG]

    Bugfixes


    Empty Messages
    It is no longer possible to send empty messages to players.

    Great Siege: Renaming Attacks
    It is now possible to properly rename attacks coming from Great Siege districts.

    Church Radius
    In some edge cases the map did not always display the correct church radius. This has been fixed.

    Rank 1 (or better)
    When talking about player rankings in events and scoreboards in general the game should no longer use the term "Rank 1 or better".

    Update to version 8.158

    Dear Community,
    Our new update to version 8.158 will be released on Monday, February 18th.
    Next to some bugfixes and backend improvements this version brings a way to mass assign flags to your villages.

    Changes and Improvements

    Mass Flag Assigning
    [​IMG]
    You can now mass assign (and unassign) flags to village groups from the research overview. Simply open the mass assign screen and select the option and type of flag and level you want to assign. Flags that currently have a cooldown period, or cannot otherwise be removed, will not be changed.

    Additionally flags will not be removed from villages that have active Flag Booster benefit.

    Bugfixes


    Rally Point Unit Types
    The Rally Point will no longer display "Infantry" for all unit types.

    Request Resources Template Issues
    We fixed an issue with the request resource templates. Now, if the total amount of resources in the template is larger than the capacity, the resources are split based on their ratio in the template.

    Maximum Market Requests
    Choosing the "Maximum" setting for market requests is now working properly on the mobile browser version and mobile apps.

    Recruiting too many units
    It should no longer be possible to begin unit recruitment when an invalid amount of units is entered.

    Defender Simulation
    For defenders the "This village" option in the simulator uses all available units again.

    Barbarian Morale
    Copying a barbarian village from a report to the simulator will now display the correct morale value (100%).
