    It has already been a few weeks since WebGL is available on beta for our frontline pioneers and with today’s release everyone on desktop and Android devices will get to enjoy the new graphics renderer for Call of War. We made a lot of improvements and adjustments and were able to fix a lot of bugs also thanks to the feedback from the community. But we won’t stop at this point. We will keep monitoring the performance and make further fixes and improvements if needed to provide the best game experience.

    How can I use the new renderer WebGL?

    If you want to turn on WebGL simply access your in-game settings in the bottom right. You can also switch back to the old renderer later on if you wish.

    With WebGL you will get to enjoy the following features:

    - Stepless zooming and smooth scrolling.
    - A more accurate vision range around your province.
    - Army paths are displayed in the country color.
    - Pathing lines also move towards their target destination even when not selected allowing players to always - have an overview where their armies are headed.
    - Zooming out to see all countries is possible even on bigger maps.
    - Closer zoom for accurate micromanagement.
    - Airplanes now show vision ranges while in flight.

    Additionally you will find a list with all fixes and improvements for Call of War mobile below.

    - We did a lot of improvements regarding app crashes and already saw very positive results. If you had problems in the past, please try again and give us feedback in case you are still encountering problems related to game crashes.
    - When creating an account for Call of War each user now receives a unique, random name automatically. We plan on implementing the option to make name changing possible. For now please open a ticket to change your name.
    - When opening the app your last played map will instantly load instead of the main menu to be able to take action even faster.
    - Furthermore you are now able to use the Android back button on your phone to access the last visited screen.
    - The ‘Suggested Games’ pop-up only shows games that users are able to join and not games that are above their current rank.
    - Buildings now show the right construction costs also when another building is in queue.
    - When you do not have any new messages you won’t see any red number anymore. Before it displayed a ‘0’.


    Your Call of War team


  • Dear generals,


    For some time already Call of War is available cross-platform and connects players not only from all over the world, but also from all kinds of different devices. To support our cross device presence even further we have been working on some improvements for the community, which we want to present to you today.


    • We added two new achievements. Play on mobile and PC (on 3/20/90 days) in order to retrieve our latest addition to the achievements.
    • The statistics page now shows a mobile vs. PC ratio of each player’s playtime on the different devices.
    • We reworked the icons for active and inactive players in the diplomacy list and on the map. Also the diplomacy list shows on which device the user was active within the game.


    Additionally the balancing changes announced on August 14 will go live today. Running games will be affected by these changes. We also reorganized and renamed the unit type names in the unit details panel for all factions, including elite units, for more historical accuracy and exchanged the unit portrait pictures in the same panel to match their new type names.


    Furthermore frontline pioneers will be able to test our new map rendering technology WebGL on beta starting today. If you experience any problems, please let us know in the forum or open a bug report ticket and add ‘WebGL’ in your subject title.


    All other bug fixes and improvements can be found below:


    • We fixed some issues with the alliance leader promotion not working properly on mobile.
    • Sometimes players were not able to join suggested games, we fixed that.
    • Some events resulted into multiple push notification appearing on mobile. This should not happen anymore.
    • We fixed another bug regarding map victory achievements.

    A position on the support team requires you to be professional in all decisions you make, and for you to be dedicated on making this game a better place for every player.

  • Dear generals,

    a new technology, which will revolutionize how you fight your battles in Call of War, is approaching. What is this modern technology you may ask. We are talking about WebGL. A state-of-the-art rendering technology which allows us to work with very fine graphical details on the map as well as provide a better performance. In the following gif you will get a first impression of what WebGL can do, but keep in mind this is not the final version, which means evenl more improvements are to come.

    As you can see scrolling the map becomes more smooth and easy. We are also able to give the map and therefore the whole game a more realistic appearance by adding movement to the water, for example.

    While you eagerly wait for the release, feel free to check out the following website in order to guarantee that your device is WebGL ready:
    get.webgl.org/

    WebGL will be testable on beta games before we have our official release to make sure that everything works smoothly.
    If you have any questions, do not hesitate and ask in our forum.

    Your Call of War team
  • Dear generals,

    today we are happy to present to you the upcoming balancing changes, which will be on beta upcoming Wednesday, August 15. After a two week test phase the changes will go live on August 28. We collected a lot of feedback including what we read in the forums and on other platforms and we felt the need to make some change to provide a balanced and interesting game experience. Please keep in mind that these changes will then also affect running games. If you have beta status you will be able to test the changes in frontline pioneer games after the beta release. Feel free to give us feedback in the forums, adjustments can still be made if necessary.
