During this week's campaign we were trying out something completely new with US Battlegroups. To allow players from all over the country to enjoy the experience of playing Shadow Cities as a part of a large group and meet new mages, all US players were assigned to national 1000-player-battlegroups during the Campaign.
Next week we will be introducing yet again changes that affect Battlegroups mainly in the US but also all other countries.
New Regional US Battlegroups
With the next week's Campaign 'Shadow Feast' we will be introducing new regionally assigned US Battlegroups which allow you to play and connect with all the mages around your region. Starting from monday November 28th there will be 5 regional US Battlegroups.
The new US Battlegroups are: 1. Northeast, 2. South Atlantic, 3. South Central, 4. Midwest and Mountain and 5. Pacific. More detailed information of these new battlegroups can be viewed here.
Player limit removed from Battlegroups
Related to this change, we will be also removing the 1000 player limit from battlegroups, so that you will be playing with all the mages in your region or country regardless of when you login to a new Campaign round. Note that addition to the United States, this change applies also to all other countries.
As always we are very interested to hear your experiences of these changes, so do share your feedback of the new Battlegroups on Shadow Cities Forums during the 'Shadow Feast' Campaign!
