  • Release Notes - 2021-04-27

    Attention, generals!

    Today’s update implements a supply drop timer icon and info popups for generals that play on the mobile app in the game. The timer will appear as soon as a supply drop is available to you on the map, while an info popup will provide information on its exact location. Should you conquer it, another info popup will reveal the contents of the supply drop to you.

    We also fixed various bugs this week. One of which happens to be the handy lasso tool, that allows you to easily select multiple units on a map. On some maps the lasso was, although functioning, not visible to players. Luckily this is a thing of the past now, and the tool is displayed correctly on all maps again.

    To learn what else was updated and fixed today, please check the list below for a complete overview on all changes:

    General:
    • When hitting the back button on your mobile device while inside a game round or on the overview screen a popup will open that lets you exit the app.
    • All Call of War Classic game rounds that were still running have been ended and Classic games have been removed as an option when creating a game round.
    • A supply drop timer icon is displayed in the upper left corner of the screen on mobile devices now, should a supply drop be available on the map.
    • An info popup now informs you on mobile devices, when a supply drop is available in a province.
    • Another info popup was added in the app, that informs you about the contents of a supply drop once you secured it.
    • Players on desktop can now test an early development version of the new beta client.
      • The beta client allows for faster and easier implementation of improvements, functions and display options that are not feasible with the current client once fully fleshed out.
      • Please note that this is an early beta stage of the client and that aspects, features, functionalities, and appearance might change with future updates.
      • You find a button to switch to the new beta client in the account settings. Once switched, closing the tab and reopening it will open the last chosen setting. To switch back to the old client, re-visit the account settings in the new beta client.
    Bug fixes:
    • An issue was resolved that prevented the lasso tool, which allows for the selection of multiple units at once, to be displayed on certain maps.
    • A bug was resolved that caused the user interface to become unresponsive, when the forgotten password popup was closed on desktop.
    • The autocompletion of usernames in the name dropdown menu when writing a message is working correctly again.
    • An issue in the mobile app was resolved that caused the link to the Call of War Wiki on the Country Chooser in some game rounds to open a blank page. When clicking the link, the Wiki is opened correctly now.
    • A bug on desktop was fixed, that caused airplanes in convoy mode to display the speed value of the airplane mode in the army bar. Airplanes in convoy mode now display the speed value of the convoy in the army bar.
    • An issue on mobile was resolved that caused submarines to be displayed on top of certain units.
    • A bug was fixed that prevented the input in the password field to be hidden by **** when trying to change the password in the account settings.
    We hope you like the new supply drop time on mobile, and that the bug fixes help you to be victorious in all the battles to come.

  • General:
    • When a player loses all provinces, the player is now marked as defeated even when still being active, and loses any possibility to make a comeback in the game round.
      • This change streamlines our victory and loss conditions and removes frustrating moments like dealing with leftover armies.
    • The access detection for Android devices was improved. This prevents the app to inform you about a connection loss, although your device is connected to the internet.
    • Several info texts were added on mobile to inform you that no messages are in your in- or outbox and in case no conversations are available in messages or trades.
    • When tapping the back button on mobile devices a popup appears that asks you whether you would like to close the app.
    • Country names on the map now allow for more characters in the same line of a country’s name. This change prevents unwanted line breaks in a country's name.
    • Country names on the map allow for an even bigger font size now, allowing the country name to be displayed even larger on the map, if the occupied area supports it.
    • Country names and flags are now displayed in diplomatic messages on mobile devices instead of the leader's name. This makes it easier to identify which country you are currently communicating with.
      • With this change we also reworked the country flags and names displayed in several communication areas on desktop.
    • The minimum requirements for Android devices were slightly increased to avoid negative user experiences on older devices.
    • Please note, that all still-running Call of War Classic game rounds will be ended on April 27th 2021. Should you be currently playing a Call of War Classic game round, please keep this date in mind, to avoid any inconvenience.


    Bug Fixes:

    • A bug was fixed that allowed planes without scouting abilities to reveal stealth units when they were part of a stack of mixed units.
    • A bug on mobile devices was fixed that prevented connection points at sea to be displayed on the map.
    • An issue on desktop was resolved that caused you to see the stats and values of your own transport ship's doctrine and research level when selecting the transport ship of another player. Now the correct unit stats of that player's unit, including doctrine and research level, are displayed.
    • A bug on mobile devices was fixed that prioritized the "bombarded by" status over the Travel location & Travel time in the army bar. This could have caused theTravel time & Travel location to not be visible.

    • An issue was resolved that prevented the logout button on desktop to work if you used Firefox or Safari browsers to play the game.
    • A bug was fixed that could cause the number of units of an army being displayed below the army image, if the image extended a certain size.
    • An issue was resolved that prevented the refueling time that was displayed in tooltips in speed rounds to be adjusted with the speed factor of the game round. The timers in the tooltip when hovering over an army are adjusted with the speed factor of the game round now.
    • A desktop bug was fixed that prevented the right number of current blueprints to be displayed in the popup that was shown when a new blueprint was acquired by capturing a supply drop.
    • An issue on mobile devices was resolved that could cause selected enemy, neutral or allied units to disappear when scrolling or zooming the map.
  • General:

    • When you join an event in Call of War you do not have to wait until all available player slots are filled. Event maps now start immediately when they are created by the system.
    • Rockets, Flying Bombs, Battleships and Strategic Bombers now deal an increased amount of morale damage.
    • The Green Devil achievement description for Paratroopers was adjusted to hint that only Paratroopers produced in airplane mode count towards this achievement.
    • When zooming out on the map, the army labels no longer disappear anymore, but change their appearance to smaller versions of the labels again
      • The smaller version does not show icon nor numbers, but retains their colors to give you the ability to identify where your own, allied or enemy units are stationed when zoomed out far.
    • A gold confirmation popup is now available on desktop, to avoid spending it by mistake.
      • The confirmation popup can be activated in the game settings.
    • The old “Canvas” graphic mode was disabled.
      • Players who still used the old “Canvas” graphic mode can switch to the available “Low Graphics Mode” as an alternative in the account settings on desktop and mobile devices.


    Bug Fixes:
    • A bug was fixed that caused the army label of a defending army to display the status “Bombarded by”, although the army was in close combat.
    • An issue was resolved that caused the gold icon of the gold production/construction speedup to be positioned incorrectly on the screen.
    • A bug was fixed that could trigger an error message, when the research of the Atomic Bomb was skipped.
    • An issue was resolved that could turn planes on carriers at sea into convoy trucks when sending on patrol. In some cases the planes did not fly directly to their patrol area, but took a detour to an airfield to refuel.
    • A bug on mobile devices was fixed, that prevented the confirmation screen from being displayed when purchasing a blueprint for any elite unit with gold.
    • An issue on mobile devices was resolved, that prevented the title for scenarios from being centered when the title was too long to be displayed in just one line.
    • A bug was fixed that prevented the standard moving animations from being displayed when moving units

  • Attention, Generals!

    Today’s update brings some quality of life improvements and bug fixes. The building details of provinces now inform you about the hitpoints of the selected building on mobile devices. Country names are displayed more centralized, making them true eye candy. Last but not least, game rounds now have their own chats, allowing communication with players within your game round without having to rely on global chat.

    For a complete overview of all changes, please check the list below:

    General:
    • Building hitpoints are now displayed in the building details of selected provinces on mobile devices.
    • Country names are now displayed near the center of a country, instead of close to the capitol. This change avoids issues with skewed country names on certain maps.
    • Country names are now only displayed in the 3 biggest areas of a country, if a country happens to have several separated areas on the map.
    • The “ingame” chat channel was re-introduced to the game. Only players of the game round you are currently playing have access to this chat.
    • The 1-3 dots indicating the army size were removed from the army bar. The 1-3 dot indicator in the army labels was replaced with actual numbers in a previous update, making the corresponding dots in the army bar obsolete.
    • On desktop, when hovering over a unit’s image in the split army dialog the unit’s name is displayed in a tooltip, making it easier to differentiate the units.
    • Information about morale penalties for being at war were removed from the tooltip of the war icon in the diplomacy menu, as the morale penalty for being at war was removed with a previous update.
    • A Huawei AppGallery button was added to the Call of War website.
    • Mobile users do not get a floating tooltip anymore stating “Not yet accepted” for games they cannot join due to a minimum rank requirement. Instead, players are now informed about the rank requirement when tapping on the greyed out “Join” button.
    • Information of day and month were added to the newspaper. Additionally to the ingame day of the game round, the newspaper now also informs you about the real life date, making it easier for you to find certain information if needed.
      • On maps with a higher speed factor the real life date does not change for several in game days.
    Bug Fixes:
    • A bug was fixed that caused rewarded units and additional tutorial units not being adjusted to the doctrine of a player.
    • The floating tooltip of an army now shows the correct travel time when moving it between own and enemy territory. Travel times displayed in the army bar and in the floating tooltip are now identical.
    • Missing damage icons were added in the unit details in the production menu.
    • An issue was resolved that prevented the confirmation screen from being displayed on mobile devices, when Blueprints were purchased.
    • A bug was fixed that caused the health bar of buildings in espionage reports on mobile devices to be displayed too dark.
    • An issue was resolved that caused a line break in the names of some rural provinces that had names longer than 10 characters.
    • A bug was fixed that could cause an error message with some players when those players tried to collect an achievement.
    • A bug was fixed that prevented the army health from being reflected in the damage efficiency and damage potential displayed in the army bar and army info popup.
    We hope all these changes and bug fixes improve your game experience even more!

  • Attention, Generals!

    With today’s release names of rural provinces will fade out when you zoom in on the map. This change gives you a better overview when you micromanage your units on the battlefield which is crucial to be victorious over the enemy.

    We are also happy to announce that a considerable number of bugs are a thing from the past now, as the team managed to resolve quite a few of them. Please read the following list for a complete overview of all changes that are introduced to the game with today’s release.

    General:
    • The Operation Supremacy Event map was reworked and returned in the event cycle of Call of War again. Prepare yourself to fight extremist movements around the globe very soon!
    • Rural province names fade out now when “show province names” is activated in the settings and you zoom in on the map. Rural province names behave like urban province names which allows for a better overview when zoomed in closer on a battlefield.
    • Players who are currently participating in the Gold Rewarded Ads test on mobile devices, please note that we are currently analyzing the paid out gold rewards. Depending on our findings, reward payouts might change in the future.
    Bug Fixes:
    • A bug on mobile was fixed that caused the army bar information of enemy long-range units being inaccurate when attacking your units while being unknown to you because of it being outside of your unit’s visibility. The army bar will now show that an unknown enemy long-range unit is currently bombarding a unit.
    • The inbox page no longer has a broken layout when the subject line of a message is rather long. To improve the readability of your inbox, subject lines of message now have character requirements of minimum 5 and maximum 50 characters. Replying several times to a message does not add more than one “re” in the subject line anymore either.
    • The prices that are displayed in the tooltip section of the Gold button after purchasing blueprints for elite units now show the correct gold amount.
    • The issue that prevented Control Point graphics from being displayed on Dominion maps when zooming out has been resolved.
    • The bug that caused the chat to jump to the top of all messages when selecting a unit on the map on desktop was fixed. You can communicate in the chat again without scrolling all the time while playing your game round.
    • A bug that sometimes gave planes the ability of teleportation when attacking a close enemy unit was fixed. Planes now fly back to their base after an attack and do not teleport anymore.
    • An issue was resolved that caused graphics to be missing in the info popup that appears when you collect a blueprint from a Supply Drop. While at it, we also fixed the elite icon on that popup which was overlapping with other information displayed on the popup.
    • A bug with the countdown of the rewarded video ads on mobile was fixed that could prevent rewards being paid out at certain times of the day.
    • An issue with the rewarded video ads on mobile was resolved that could prevent the interface from updating due to a connectivity error. You can follow the 5 steps when watching the new rewarded video ads now without any interface issues.
    • While some planes teleported back to their base, some pilots decided to stay above their destroyed target until new orders were given. This bug was fixed as well. All pilots received orders to return to their base once the attack on their target was completed before executing new orders.
    • An issue was fixed that caused the number of displayed projectiles of long-range units to increase when more non-long-range units were grouped in a stack. The number of displayed projectiles now only increases if the number of long-range units in a stack is increased.
    • A bug on mobile was fixed that caused the coalition tab to be displayed in game rounds that had coalitions deactivated.
    • An issue was resolved that triggered an error message for some players when they gave Forced March orders to an army.
    • Several province and country names that were not localized for some languages have there translated names in those languages now.
    We hope that the new fading out names of rural provinces and all those fixed bugs will help your efforts on the battlefield. We wish you and your troops best of luck!
