    Attention, Generals!

    Today’s update brings quite some bug fixes to Call of War. Gone are the days that some unit specific stats did not update. We also resolved the issue of the undefeatable Swiss convoy on the All Countries: All In event map and the 1939 Historic World War map. Those are just two examples of what we fixed today. Here is an overview of all bug fixes and the upcoming scenario rotation:

    Bug fixes:
    • Resolved an issue that caused unit specific stats to not update correctly.
    • Resolved an issue that caused a mixed stack of airplanes with different patrol radius not dealing or taking damage when sent on patrol. Now the smallest patrol radius is valid for the entire stack and damage is dealt and taken by planes accordingly.
    • Resolved an issue that caused swiss planes to appear as indestructible convoys on the “All Countries: All In” event map and the “1939 Historic World War” map.
    • Resolved an issue that made AI enemy troops skip movement time to counter a ranged attack on their province by a player.
    • Resolved an issue that kept transport ships from leveling up combat and speed values after research was completed.
    • Fixed the last online timer of alliance members in the alliances ranking not working.
    • Resolved an issue where units could not be selected in a certain area in the Pacific Ocean on the “World at War” and “1939 Historic World War” maps.
    • Resolved an issue where starting units were not deployed correctly on the “1939 Blitzkrieg” map.


    Note: Although unit specific stats are working again, but are yet not counted towards rewards. We are working on the issue.

    Mobile:
    • Resolved an issue that caused a long delay and lack of loading screen when creating a new account on iOS when clicking the Play button.
    Scenario rotation:
    • 2019-08-20 - 2019-08-27: America Homefront
    • 2019-08-27 - 2019-09-03: 1939 Blitzkrieg
    We hope you like today’s update! We still have a lot in the pipeline for Call of War that is about to be released. Be prepared for the next Update and the content it will bring!

  • Attention, Generals!

    Today we are introducing the new scenario rotation to Call of War! Starting today you will be able to join games from a list of 4 permanently available scenarios and 1 additional one from a pool of 5 scenarios. This extra scenario will change on a weekly basis.

    To celebrate the introduction all active players receive 14 days High Command for free!

    Why are we doing this? Our goal was to improve the player experience by increasing the activity across all running scenarios and increasing server performance. We analyzed which scenarios you like and play the most and which scenario are less popular. According to these findings we chose which scenarios will be available all the time, and which scenarios will make regular but temporary occurrences.

    We expect the new scenario rotation feature to significantly increase activity on all maps as it distributes all players over a smaller amount of different maps. The improved activity is less demanding on our servers and improves server performance as less maps need to be provided and less AIs need to be processed.

    Some of you might have noticed that Call of War has more than the 9 maps mentioned earlier. Based on our analysis we made the decision to retire those maps that are played less often in order to increase activity and performance and improve player experience. We know that some of you like these maps and we didn’t make this decision lightly, but in the end we came to the conclusion that the needs of the many outweigh the needs of the few. We are confident that the new scenario rotation will introduce players to new maps they haven’t played before and bring more variation in the players scenario mix. Retired scenarios might come back as events in the future though.

    The following scenarios will be available permanently:
    • Tutorial Mode - Clash of Nations
    • Europe - Clash of Nations
    • World at War
    • 1939 - Historical World War


    The following scenarios will rotate on a weekly basis:
    • America - Homefront
    • Pacific Conquest
    • Dominion Antarctica
    • Europa - Road to War
    • 1939 -Blitzkrieg


    The following scenarios will be retired:
    Tournament Island
    1941 - Mediterranean Theater
    The English Channel

    This week "America - Homefront" will be available in the scenario rotation, followed by "Dominion Antarctica" next week.

    Another change that will help to increase activity across all running scenarios is the limitation of game creation. With this change game creation will be limited to members of High Command. Members will be able to create 1 game every month. Game creation is not limited to scenarios that are currently in the rotation. This change will include internal alliance games. Alliance challenges are excluded from thesechanges.

    Fire Control Review

    two weeks ago we adjusted the fire control settings of units. As part ofthis adjustment we tweaked the Fire at Will mode in the way that units now block units of neutral nations or even open fire when in close range.

    We received a lot of feedback and concerns regarding the changes from you and we listened carefully. Due to your feedback we reviewed the adjustment and its behaviour in live game rounds within the team once more and concluded that we want to fix and improve these settings to be more in line with player expectations. We would like to thank each and everyone of you for sharing your constructive feedback from first hand experiences, as it helps us to continuously improve Call of War.

    Although we are dedicated to re-work the fire control settings as soon as possible, we would like to point out that it will take some time for the change to be developed and tested. We will release the changes in one of the upcoming releases. This means that it won't be an immediate fix and will take some weeks to be available in live games.

  • Attention Generals!

    With today’s release we introduce an adjustment to the aggressive fire mode of units. When switching to the aggressive fire mode units will open fire on any unit in range. This includes units of neutral countries and is not limited to units from countries you are currently at war with. Obviously your own units and those of your allies will be spared. There are several strategic benefits to this change. You can now setup naval blockades or prepare for intruders preemptively for example. But be careful, once you open fire on a unit of a neutral country, it will
    trigger war with this nation.

    As part of the adjustment we limited the aggressive fire mode to range units only. To counter this limitation all units will now block other units automatically when positioned somewhere.
    • Aggressive fire mode: Limited to range units. Units will bombard enemy and neutral units.
    • Fire at will (standard): Blocks and attacks close by neutral or enemy units, unless they have right of way.
    • Return fire /hold fire: Units pass each other without combat.
    The aggressive fire mode can be activated in the fire control, which is available to members of the high command. Membership to the high command can be purchased in the shop.

    Additionally to the aggressive fire mode update we also fixed some bugs. For details see the complete list of changes below:

    General:
    • The aggressive fire mode of units will now include opening fire on units from neutral countries.
    • We fixed an issue that caused submarines staying invisible during an attack when crossed by an enemy naval unit.
    • We fixed an issue for iOS and Android that caused an error message to appear on the screen when adding to a full building queue.
    • We fixed an issue that prevented payments via sms for some countries.
    We hope you can make good use of the aggressive fire mode and wish you best of luck on the battlefield!
