Have you ever heard of Einherjar - The Viking's Blood? It is a F2P web game from Japan that was released quite 1 year ago. Till now the game still running and has been implemented many changes to keep their players satisfied since then. And they just announced their milestones on their official site to recap what the game has been through. Below are some notable points we taken from their notice article.
Updated chat box
At the beginning, Einherjar players only communicate via guild chat section, that limiting the smooth communication to the whole community. That has been changed since the release of new chat box that is helpful for live sharing and discussion. That should be prepared before the game's official release. But in fact the Japanese version even doesn't have that feature so the English staff might need time to implement it.
More friends, more Power
Power is an important factor which gives players many in-game benefits, like boosting activity time or summoning heroes. And the game has a referral policy that if you invite your friends to play with you, you will enjoy some benefits like in-game items and Power.
Rewards for top 10 on ranking table
Being in the top players of Einherjar does not only give players fame but also rewards weekly. Top 10 players of the weekly battle ranking are now rewarded 10000 gold and 1 random gift (weapon, armor, accessory, material, item). And the reward list has been adjusted LATELY to give more valuable items to long time players.
Variety of units and skills updated
There are many unit classes in Einherjar that are ranked from Job 1 (lowest) to 3 (highest). At the beginning, choices given to players were quite limited, but now more and more unique units have been added to help diversify their Viking army, such as Paladin, Succubus, Baphomet, etc. New units and heroes also come with brand new and unique skills (Magic Break, Valkyrie Protection, Lightning Speed, etc.) helping create more tactics suitable to each player.
Higher level cap for units and buildings
Now players can raise their warriors? max level up to 50 (lv.45 still allows soul sacrifice as before) to seize the 2 updated colonial forts (St. Oduran fort & Denovu evil fort) only suitable for units at lv50. Moreover, all stats of units have been increased respectively to give stronger Viking fighters.
More items, more maps, more quests!
Einherjar is unique for its destiny quest system. Players can choose a path to go on their destiny and there is no way to turn back. Now the number of paths is up to 7 and will be extended more later.
Along with it, maps and items are inseparable to give fresh and interesting experience of utilizing different sets of equipment on players' adventure in a variety of maps filled with different strong enemies for them to conquer. New elite sets of weapons and armor (Adaman, Wolfram, etc.) are regularly updated to be useful for mightiest heroes.
And for those who rarely go on expeditionary battles, now they can earn RARE materials (Asgard Crystal, God Blood, Hel Stone, etc.) through training in home territory. Though the collecting rate is low but it is worth time and they can make good use of weak units who cannot fight often.
Monster Square released
Recently a brand new update called MONSTER SQUARE has been released to help players summon Monster units to diversity their force and make the game playing more interesting. Cause it is fun that if we have defeated those monsters and now they return to serve us. Quite amazing right? Some of them own unique useful skills that can help players a lot on the battlefield.
Einherjar looks promising but it has lost too much time to develop, especially in the fast moving internet time like now. It should implemented those changes far sooner above to keep players stay longer. The fact that its community is quite small really discourages new players join the game. Loyal players may still save the game and help spread the game a little further, but it does need more marketing right now. If you are interested in turn-base tactic game of Japan, like in Final Fantasy Tactics, you should try Einherjar - The Viking's Blood cause now there are few games of that genre.
