Here is what was changed in the update:
- Redesigned Home Page:
- Content such as news is now dynamically generated, meaning there is less need for human maintenance, and the site will auto update news and other relevant game content as it becomes available.
- New sections: Things To Do, Happening Now, Featured Build and Featured Guild.
- API Integration:
- Live event tracking can be found on the home page.
- New group finder tool.
- A backed up copy of the old forums (during Guild Wars 1 days) is now available for viewing publicly here. We did this as a thanks to our devotes GW1 community, who we know a lot of the members wouldn't mind revisiting the old forums. Registration on the old forums is disabled. Please do not force us to turn off posting.
Certain things are being tweaked for speed optimization. (Most notably the event tracking home page at the time of this writing).
- The "Other Records" forum will be back at a later date.
- There will be full support for jumping puzzle records.
The events status page will be completed. The records page/table will be rewritten.
- The forums will be rewritten.
The backend is currently in the process of being rewritten and will be completed soon. This will enable updates to be pushed much more rapidly than has been standard around here.
