    Changelog 2.161

    Dear Community,

    On Wednesday April 18th Grepolis will be updated to version 2.161. As always there will be a short downtime while the update is applied.


    • Animations were added for any spells cast in the game, highlighting the results of the spell especially for new players.
    • Furthermore, we changed the way candidates are shown for the upcoming player council elections, to have a randomized order of candidates in the windows to not distort the election results.
    New Features and Changes

    • Parts of the tutorial can now be skipped by more experienced players.
      • Players with a Grepolisscore >250 or who unlocked a hero on the respective world can now choose to "skip" the tutorial.
      • Skipping the tutorial will not remove the quests altogether, so that you can grab all rewards. However, all guided steps will be deactivated so that you can tackle the quests whenever you feel like it.
      • The option to skip is only available for the first 20 quests, which constitute for the most guided part of our quest lines.
    • Any spell cast by a God now comes with a highlight animation, showing the area targeted by the spell.
      • The highlight surrounds the interface portion that is affected by the spell. This is an example of the spell highlight for "Nature's Gift":
      • These animations can be turned off in the options.
    • The candidate lists within the player council election window now show the candidates in a randomized order whenever the window is (re-)loaded. This should not give any of the candidates an advantage by being most visible in the first list position(s).

    • Notifications - Admin notifications and world wonder notifications had the same icons. World wonder notifications now sport their own distinctive icon again:
    • Reports - The hint regarding new battle point calculations was not always displayed if no battle points were gained. It will now always be shown.
    • Events - With an event sale ending, the event icon could also disappear until the game was reloaded. This should no longer happen.
    • Mythical Hen - One of the daily rankings did not reset properly due to time change to CEST.
    • Login screen/Team overview - An internal error occured when loading the page. Content was not displayed.
