vPopulus, Start of rounds
Like we explain on our previous Blog post. We won’t repeat the mechanics changes we already said, but we’d like to reinforce the idea that the Rounds are time-limited, that everything will be reseted afterwards and that prizes will be given both to top players and players who donated to support vPopulus once the “final” (not rounds) version of the game starts.
Let's also remind everyone that the purpose of the rounds is testing everything and change features that need changing in order to get a more consistent gameplay.
First lightning round
The first round will start at midnight (GMT) on March 15th (2017). At the day-change from 14th to 15th March registration will be open and game will be started.
The very first round will take place in Scandinavia, which means only Scandinavian countries will be added for this round. The objective of the 1st round is military domination. Which means the server will end whenever there’s only 1 country left.
The countries that will participate in this rounds are: Sweden (25 regions), Norway (19 regions), Finland (19 regions), Iceland (8 regions) and Denmark (5 regions).
Despite only having 5 countries added, all community should participate because more players will make the game better and everyone will have a saying on future changes.
We keep saying that you’ll have a chance to participate and make your opinion matter, we really mean it. That’s why during the duration of the lightning server we’ll host 2 meeting between developers and community.
In those meetings will be divided into 3 parts. The 1st part we’ll discuss features ingame that might need to be changed, during the 2nd part we’ll discuss planning of future features and on the latest part we’ll have a little brainstorming to think of new features.
The 1st meeting should take place around March 25th and the 2nd meeting will take place once the server has ended.
Initial values and Elections
Once the server starts, in order to make things smooth and expedite the process of Declarations of War, there will already be job offers, market offers, etc.
