  • Dear generals,

    with today’s update we introduce an important change to the way the peace period works. In the past, the peace period always ended at day change - no matter when the map was started. Thus, a 2 days peace period could last for either exactly 48 hours or anything down to 24h 1 min (if the map was started 1 min before day change). That’s why we decided to change that behavior to something more consistent: A 2 days peace period will now last exactly 48 hours, no matter when the map started. (This behavior has actually been around for some time.) In addition, we will now also display the remaining time prominently in the main view of a game round.

    Here's the complete list of today's changes:
    • Peace period now lasts exactly X days (and thus does not necessarily end at day change). An active peace period is indicated by a timer icon.
    • In our speed round event maps the build queue timers were not adjusted to the accelerated game speed. This has been fixed.
    • Some achievements were shown as completed, but didn’t offer to collect the reward. This has been fixed.
    • You will now see a small notification next to the achievement icon whenever a reward is waiting to be collected.
    • Games that are restricted by a minimum rank display the level that is needed to join if not reached yet.
    • The newspaper will display ‘control X points for victory’ depending on which ranking the player is looking at (index of nations vs. index of coalitions).
    • When clicking on the alliance of a player in their statistics within a game you will be redirected to the alliance page in a new tab.

  • The achievement reward system is finally live! Check out your profile, collect your rewards and enjoy the profile rework improvements that came alongside other changes and fixes. More details about the achievement reward system can be found in the news post from last week. Please keep in mind that it may take a few minutes until an achievement will be marked as completed.

    Update News:

    Profile rework improvements:
    • We implemented a button in the top middle of your profile which allows you to switch between human and AI for your killed and lost unit statistics.
    • Clicking near the the score and ranking in the profile will open the ranking of that player, this can also be used in your own profile.
    • The arrow to show individual unit statistics will now open the information for all units at the same time, which allows you to get a better overview and compare their statics more easily.
    • Global popularity is now again shown in the ingame profile for Elite-AI rounds.
    Additional changes and improvements:
    • You are now able to find the map-specific winning reward for your game round in the newspaper.
    • The ‘report player’ button is also available for anonymous rounds.
    • In the research menu as well as the production menu you will now find Anti Air, Artillery and Anti Tank units in the Infantry tab. Mechanized Infantry can be found in the Armor tab. These units now count towards their new category for certain achievements.
    • The small icon next to each unit on the map will always display their current armor class. This was not always the case. Previously it was showing the easiest target class for some units.
    • ‘Earn Premium Currency’ options (also called ‘Offer Wall’) have been deactivated.
    • The newspaper filter for politics and economics works properly again.
    • Level 2+ damaged buildings with upkeep could not be disabled in the building description. This has been fixed.
    • Users that are invited to an alliance should now be able to see a message instead of the default alliance text.
    Mobile:
    • Anonymous rounds do not show player details anymore.
    • The report form has been fixed.
    • You can now also compare your profile with other players.
    • Users were not able to trade less than 5,000 resources, we fixed this problem.
    • Gold rounds falsely showed 0 Gold entry fee, this has been fixed.
    We hope you enjoy the update,
    your Call of War team


  • Dear generals,

    with next week’s update we are happy to announce a new feature which will change the way you engage with Call of War: achievement rewards! As soon as the update is live you will be able to collect Gold rewards for completing any of the over 40 achievements you did not complete so far. We also rebalanced the existing achievements and lowered the requirements for certain levels (some of them have never been unlocked by any player). This also means that some players will automatically gain certain achievement levels with the update which they didn’t reach before. Rewards can not only be collected for achievement levels gained after the update, but also for any that have been completed since April 1.Additionally we added 2 new achievements. The Fly Swatter (kill 25/150/1000 units with anti-air) and Artillery Aficionado (kill 100/500/2500 units with artillery).

    The full details on which achievements have been changed and how much gold you will be able to collect can be found in this Google Sheet

    In addition, next week’s update will bring another change: Some of you may be familiar with the 'Earn Premium Currency’' tab in our shop and maybe have also used it. However, we often received complaints that those offers didn’t work as intended. Sadly, we also didn’t have control over the kind of offers that were displayed and were therefore limited in resolving offer-related problems. We discussed the option to remove the offers many times, but our investigation showed that there were still quite many successfully completed offers and gave several people the opportunity to receive some gold. Now the day has finally arrived to say goodbye to those gold offers. We are currently exploring better ways to allow players to earn free Gold in the future.

    We hope you are as excited about the achievement feature as we are and won’t miss the Earn Gold offers too much while reaping those rewards.
