Changes :

- Campaigns now have their turns Automatically update at 12am, (8am & 4pm for 8hr games), (12pm for 12hr games).

- Campaign armies have their own timers now. So you can move/attack with any troop (when ready), and it will not be ready again until X hours later. (where X = 75% of turn speed or beginning of next turn if that is greater). Can still only move/attack with each army once per turn period.

- Added 2 decimal places to troop production page.

- Added a few more duel & campaign maps (images still to come)

- Fixed Campaigns so non-members can only be active in 3 games. If in a queue while active in 3 camps, they will not be included.


- Fog Of War is now OPTIONAL for Battles & Duels. Default is for FoW to be off, which means both players can see everything (much like a boardgame).

- Added Map Stats to each Map & gameType. Reload the website and you will see a Maps link under each gameType.

after bieng around for the umpteenth upgrade this 1 brings about another change of tactics.while older players view this as a new challange are you making it to hard for the new kids ? a backview of my games see''s a rough 50% inactive rate.is it getting to hard for them to get the rules,tactics and strategys?

Possibly Bloodaxe.
But it does say one the front page that this game is in beta mode.
I think the changes will be fine for the long run.

bloodaxe, i''m looking forward to the queue changes (where are they in the list of updates?) making my next camp much more challenging :-)

and if i''m not mistaken, this seems to have fixed the bug/feature where if you assign a new unit type to your barracks when your turn is still active, you wouldn''t actually not produce any new units. how many negatives was that?? used to get free troop assigns, not anymore. it''s a good thing, even though i''ll admit to taking advantage of the way it was.

what happens if you always play half your troops at one time then the other half half a turn later... it would always stay ready?

maybe the whole ready thing should go, and it just show how long till the next turn update (for resources/production), as the troop times are so flexible now.

agreed Req, the Ready Now feature is useless now I think and I would rather know when the next resource/production time is.

Better idea, Req just show us how long until the next resource production. Like the new system so far!

Yeah show time until the next resource/troop production tick.
and show how many ticks your behind on the "My Games" page too.

So it might look like:
Campaign_x y/101 zT/day 0 - 999 a b c d 12:01 +1


Where the time on the end when the next tick happens and the number is how many you have missed thus far.

its no problem to go into your camp''s to see if your ready, but as the above homies have staed, a timer for "next cycle" would save alot of clicks...as it is i just go down my list but it''s hard to keep track of cuz i go to certain ones from my messages and it messes up my system...this is a great game

Yeah your not actually behind.
But it would be nice to track how many you have missed since you lasted opened the game window.

Thanks for keeping it as part of an option and the option is to not have this change. Obviously anyone paying for Awareness or Eagle Eye as a tech and liking it would not want this option!
