Starting with Season 8, the time limit for games involving Pro players has been reduced to 2 minutes. Any team consisting of Pros that loses in 2 minutes or more will lose points accordingly. We also have good news for Preacher ranks - you’re now pros!
20 years ago, Bullfrog created Populous: The Beginning. We will celebrate this with a special event taking place in the months November and December, so everyone spread the word and get as many people to play during these 2 months because we have something of biblical proportions planned, its gonna rain bullfrogs!!
We are also expecting some very special guests, we cant spoil too much yet, but keep an eye on our forums because in a few weeks they will make a topic with an important announcement for all populous players.
At least try to make sure you are online in our matchmaker on November 29th and 30th for some real Populous Magic!
Congratulations to the winners of Season 5: Nici_OP with 510 points, followed by Meph at 451 and Spinnifix with 440. Despite losing 61,633 followers, Nici still managed to pull ahead again, so try a bit harder next season!
Starting in Season 6 there is a new XP system implemented. Players will gain XP for playing games winning, and completing achievements. All values from people testing this system have been reset. Weve added a bunch of new achievements relating to spells cast either in a single game or over many games, plus well be introducing limited time challenges to be completed for even more XP!
Gain enough XP and youll level up and get a nice little bonus of some wood.
Bonus of wood? That doesnt sound too exciting! But you can use your new collection of wood to place bets on games.
All bets must be placed before the game starts or within the first 2 minutes to count. You pick the teams and the map, and your wager, well give you the odds and payout if you win.
