Improved Social Features Game Entry

Dear Kings and Queens!

Forge of Empires has developed a lot during the last couple of years and even in the last months, as we have added more and more features to the game. To not overwhelm especially new players with all these options that the game has to offer and also to give more guidance for new players, we have decided to adjust the game entry.

A lot of features have become available right after the tutorial has been completed, like the Social Bar or the Goods Market.

Therefore we have applied the following changes:
  • The Friends Tavern will no longer be unlocked with the Technology Construction, but with Brewing instead.
  • The Social Bar and Global Rankings will no longer be unlocked after the Tutorial but with the Technology Thatched Houses.
  • The Goods Market will no longer be unlocked after the Tutorial but with the first researched Goods Technology or when reaching Iron Age.
  • We have also updated the Guilds algorithm of recommended guilds, to show less 1-member guilds and more guilds with 10+ members, to ensure that new players have it easier finding an active guild.
With these changes we want to ensure that new players have an easier start with our game Forge of Empires.

These changes will be applied on Sept 15 , 2020.

As always, your feedback is very important for us, so don't forget to comment here!
