Website Upcoming Update 11/27/2014 | 1004 comments

Dear Councillors,

As many of you would have predicted, with the start of the reveal of Academy units, a new update of the Shadow Council website is coming.

This update is particularly important for us and we hope you will enjoy the content: we worked really hard on it!

First of all, we will update the Academy faction page with new content as we did previously for Haven. Teasing is now over and the next step is the final reveal of all official concept arts and 3D renders!

We will also provide you with Lore information about all creatures but also more information about their skills. Stay tuned!

Furthermore, we are delighted to bring to you the new layer of the gamification feature with this update! This feature was first introduced with the implementation of avatar selection in your account last month and we are now taking a step further. As stated when we launched this platform, your investment will be rewarded and of course, this will be retroactive (meaning that all your actions since day one will be taken into account).

Let’s dive into the details of this new Shadow Council experience!


Firstly, you will be able to earn experience while being part of the Shadow Council. You might have already seen in your profile page that an XP progress bar is already present. This one will become live with next update and will show your XP gains. Maximum level is set at 30.

Here is the current listing of how you can earn experience:
  1. Take part in votes
  2. Post comments (gain of XP is limited to prevent spam)
  3. Receive upvotes on your comments.
  4. Share a fan-art, fan-fic or any UGC (we manually add experience for this case at the moment so there might be delay)
  5. Unlock achievements.
There are currently 42 achievements in the website and you will be able to discover all of them with the new feature implementation. To name but a few:
  • Civic Duty (participate to your first vote)
  • Taciturn (post your first comment)
  • Welcomed (receive your first like)
  • And a lot more!


However, we decided not to only offer you experience but also the ability to unlock customization elements for your profile. Indeed, as you may have identified with the avatar update, you now have a frame around your avatar and this one is not set in stone. You will be able to select between a selection of frames to stand out in the Council and also unlock new ones thanks to your progress.
Have a look at level 1 frames and be prepared to discover exciting new ones soon!


In addition to your brand new level and frame, you will also be able to unlock titles on the Shadow Council to go even further in your experience as Councillor. Starting from level 1, you will able to select between 8 titles and will unlock new ones every 5 levels (1-5-10-15-20-25-30)!

Level 1 titles:
  • The Treasure Hunter
  • The Chivalrous
  • The Faithful
  • The Furious
  • The Guardian
  • The Magical
  • The Mighty
  • The Mysterious

We will also be able to handpick some members and offer them unique titles to reward them for their investment and passion! Passion and respect will be highly valuated :)

How to change my frame & title?

You will be able to change frame & title directly on your profile page by clicking on your avatar!

We hope you will enjoy those upcoming features; our objective is to enhance your Shadow Council experience and reward your great support and investment!

In the meantime, we are still working on highly awaited features such as media & community pages and will keep you updated on those topics as soon as possible.

Whenever the update will be deployed there might be some downtimes or errors on the first hours so we apologize in advance for any possible inconvenience :)

Stay tuned fellow Councillors to discover the Shadow Council experience upgrade!

The M&M Team.
