Peer’s Top 10 Player Portraits

As the week enters its last half, we’ve reached the point where choosing can seem like a colossal task; especially when it’s between our favorite things. But the Forge of Empires team never quits, so we sat down with our Game Designer for another round of Peer’s Top 10.

This week we asked him two simple questions, what are your favorite player portraits and why? Here are his answers, hope you enjoy!

1)      Drowned Jack

This portrait is from the “evil” ending of last year’s Valentine’s event. That ending, where Jack and Rose did not come together in the end, with a tragic outcome for Jack… ohhh… a great portrait for all the people out there that hate Titanic.

Forge of Empires’ Top 10 Buildings According to the Game Designer

Let’s face it, Forge of Empires appeals to people for a variety of reasons. Yet one of its biggest perks is the variety of buildings players can choose as they go through the ages. Although we know that people have their individual preferences and everyone might not agree, we wanted to know the Game Designer’s opinion. So we asked Peer Kröger two simple questions: What are your top 10 favorite FOE buildings? And why?

Here are the results; enjoy:

1 .Amusement Park (Modern Era)

Forge of Empires 1.25 – More space for your city

Forge of Empires
Your city is bursting at the seams? You have no idea where to place your latest buildings? Then look forward to version 1.25! Our developers have recognized that many players need more space and expanded the city map. Where you could once only imagine a little river, you can now see beautiful banks and vivid vegetation. With the reworked city surroundings, your are now able to place more expansions and have therefore more possibilities to build your city of dreams.

City sorroundings
But a larger city involves also some technical issues: Especially modern cities with lots of fabrics and smoking buildings are pretty hardware hungry. To solve this problem we introduced a new option: The hardware acceleration feature. The Hardware acceleration feature utilizes your graphics card to display your city, instead of your processor. This should result in a performance boost on most modern machines.

New option
Anyway, i’m looking forward to the new space and I’m already thinking of how to use it properly.
