The Aelion’s Call update for Skyforge is already going to introduce a lot of new things to the game, and today the dev team profiled some of the major changes to Pantheons that will result from the update and player feedback.
First of all, did you like clans? If so, that’s too bad, because they’re gone. History. Fini. Fail. That last word isn’t my harsh take on the situation; the blog specifically says “it fails.” Instead, Skyforge will go with a simpler, more “classic” management system. Sometimes, the simple way to go is just the best way to go.
More significantly, Distortion Analyzers will also get some tweaking, since, as the blog puts it, “players moved from Pantheon to Pantheon in order to complete the whole range of distortions and get an access to the newest ones.” To prevent that, players who are new to a pantheon can’t take part in a distortion for a full seven days, and there are changes to how pantheons can scan for and save distortions.
That seven-day waiting period sounds a little harsh, but I can see how it might be necessary. And I haven’t yet joined a pantheon, so most of the changes fly over my head. What do you guys think? Oh, and, uh, got a pantheon I can join? 🙂
