    Changelog 2.158

    Dear Community,

    On Wednesday, March 7th, Grepolis will be updated to version 2.158. As always there will be a short downtime while the update is applied.


    • Notifications had 3 small changes done to improve the information given. There are now two more distinctive icons for attack planner and admin notifications and notifications about incoming supporting units also provide more information on their destination.
    • The in-game chat has been fully deactivated and removed from the user interface. Significant changes would have been required to restore functionality but only few players tried to access since its temporary deactivation. We decided to part ways with the outdated chat system.
    • At the same time, our developers spent some time on improving the display of live conquest reports shared by other players on the app. Please refer to upcoming mobile changelog to learn more.
    New Features and Changes

    • Notifications informing you about incoming supporting units sent to one of your cities now also contain their destination city.
    • Two notifications received new unique icons in order to avoid confusion with other notification types.
      • Attack planner notifications no longer look like support actions, but have their own style:
      • Notifications issued by game admins no longer look like in-game reports. If you see this icon, check for important news:
    • The alliance chat has been removed from the user interface
      • Due to technical difficulties with the old implementation of the alliance chat (Flash), it was previously deactivated and would have required extensive rework for it to be usable again.
      • Seen as less than 5% of our active players tried to access the chat during the temporary deactivation phase, we have decided to move on and remove the alliance chat altogether to focus the resources in other areas.
    • Event and sale icons, as well as unit tooltips now scale in accordance to screen resolution, in order to prevent inconveniences on small screens.
    • Adjusted the handling of Captchas for more convenience in case there are any service interruptions of the Captcha service.


    • Tutorial - Quest arrows can no longer overlap and block the quest log. In case of overlap, the arrow can now be clicked through.
    • Recruitment overview - Numbers shown for the current ongoing recruitments in the recruitment overview sometimes did not match actual recruitment numbers.
    • Effects - Returning units from a besieged town led to effects being put into effect during the sieged that should only be re-triggered upon fending off/cancelling the siege.
    • Effects - Fixed several issues causing event effects and other bonuses to be applied multiple times albeit being unique.
    • Inventory - The mouse cursor did not switch to indicate that items can be interacted with (used). The right cursor is now shown again.
    • Localization - Fixed overlapping text on the gold shop button in several languages.
    • Incantation Circle/In Demeter's Name - Upon closing and reopening the event window after an item has been created but not collected, the window will keep its collection background to indicate that the item needs to be used or stored.
    • Conquest - Using the BBCode to share a live conquest report on a ghost town returned the error "[Invalid BBCode]". These reports can be shared again.

    Important information
