Vikings of Thule will be offline for a few hours early tomorrow while we are updating! As we move closer to the end of the beta era, Vikings of Thule is receiving many exciting new updates to make the playing experience a memorable one for new players and our veteran players, as well.
In this update, you can expect to see a better registration process, a brand new tutorial with gives rewards during and after completion, an improved marketplace with better sorting options, post to profile options to boast about your achievements on Facebook, many profile changes and a new game header with easier options to become a fan or leave feedback.
A major change we have made concerns an issue many players share regarding forfeiting during duels. Those who forfeit will now incur penalties and the player remaining will receive rewards for their valiance. If a player decides to forfeit a battle, a confirmation window will pop up and alert them that they will lose the cost of the battle, their runes, and 50% of the respect points they would have lost during the battle. The player remaining will be refunded their duel costs, have their used runes returned and other small rewards which may not all be in place yet. We hope this helps in keeping fair game play and adds to the enjoyment and challenge in playing.
We plan on releasing another update in the near future where we will have fixed any bugs that we may spot after this update and will include even more features, including the introduction of using your Wights during duels! We are also in the process of creating the official Gogogic forums, which will be linked from the game’s header bar. The forums will be a bit plain at first, but we can make it an exciting location to hold discussions with your help and feedback. Vikings of Thule will have its own forum, as will each of Gogogic’s other titles. In the coming months, we also plan on including messages, an in-game chat system, more assets, new battle cards, mini-games, town management options, quests, missions and the option to form alliances.
Exciting times are happening and we look forward to seeing you all in Thule!
