Release Notes: April 1, 2022

Published Mar 30, 2022

Hi everyone, after much work we're excited to announce the release of the site updates for EOD. There's a lot that has been changed over the past several weeks both in terms of functionality and builds. We'll continue to work on additional items and improvements, however, here and now, we're happy with the state the site's in to draw a line under the current progress and share it with you all.

Builds

We've released an updated set of builds for EOD specialisations and balance. Check them out on the Builds Listing today.

Groups

Our brand new Groups feature allows Guild Wars 2 players to create and discover groups for encounters, guilds, and communities. Whether you're looking for new players or a group to join, make use of our dynamic features to:

  • View publicly listed groups on the Groups listing.
  • Create new groups to advertise groups of any type (i.e. guilds, statics, training communities, selling groups, competitive).
  • Enable membership features for a group so that you can invite and receive applications from website users.
  • Apply to join new groups as a player.

It's important to note a couple of limits we've applied to the feature:

  • Listings expire three days after they're posted unless your group has been verified as a community.
  • Group member limits are currently 7 or 12. We will consider adjustments to this based on feedback.

We're planning further improvements to this feature already, so as always please provide any feedback via the Airtable so we can consider it as part of the process.

News

Stay up-to-date and in-the-know with our new News feature. We'll be posting a quarterly wrap up of release notes and changes moving forwards here, in addition to general announcements and posts throughout the year. We'll post on our Twitter to announce new posts.
