In the reboot, when you register or sign in for the first time, you get a Safe Home Valley to start in. This is the same as the old universe. The Safe Home Valley is a private realm that nobody else can get into, you are safe there! :)
You get a Small Iron Mine, some trees and a few signs to help you get started.
The Whirlpool is a one way Whirlpool. It takes you to a random place in a random realm. Every 24 hours the destination of the Whirlpool changes, so if you don’t like where it goes, wait a day and it’ll go somewhere new. This means your enemies can’t camp the Whirlpool destination and trap you in your home realm.
If you reset your account, your home valley gets deleted, a new home valley is created, and you are placed in that new home valley. This is great for new users who make a mess of their home valley and want to clear it and start again.
Deleting a realm is a new feature, and I wasn’t able to do that in the old universes. When a realm is deleted, all gates going to it are deleted, all units removed, all bookmarks to that realm are removed, etc. If a user is in a realm when its deleted, they get sent to their Safe Home Valley.
Another new feature… in the settings there is a new hexagon grid size. One smaller than the smallest size. The screenshot above is 100% at that new grid size. :)
6 days to reboot!
