      Dear Generals,

      every map and every player requires a different strategy. But how are you supposed to know which approach to take? For this reason we will give every country that can be picked by a player an additional airport and an Interceptor as a starting unit, which are placed in an urban province in the middle of the respective country. This change will only affect newly created games and only non-historical maps. Reason for this change is the limited amount of action players can do in the first 24 hours of a game round. You will now have more possibilities to interact with the game and gather information. Planning and strategizing becomes more easy and interesting.

      Additionally, we fixed the patrolling behavior of airplanes. As stated in our last update, planes will not declare war to the other country if you redirect the plane within their first 15 minutes of patrolling and before the plane does damage. This allows you to still scout with your airplanes and redirect them to safety.

      Here is the full list of changes:
      • Every country that can be selected by a player will now have an airport and Interceptor available. This will only affect newly created, non-historical maps .
      • Planes will no longer trigger war at the beginning of their patrolling timer. Damage will be applied after 15 minutes of patrolling, which will then trigger war with the other country.
      • Translations in the statistics tab were not correct. This has been fixed.
      • In some cases provinces disappeared from the province list when the player had too many provinces and opened the construction/production panel.
      • Players that get banned for 24h in the chat will have all their prior messages removed.

      For mobile:
      • We introduced a confirmation button for some Gold actions.
      • The game list can now load more games by scrolling down and you will be able to search for games.
      • The research now shows the current day and lists the day requirements.
      • The button to switch between games and home screen is now visible at all times.
      • The behavior of the country chooser has been improved.
      • It is easier now to click through the different resources in the storage overview.
      • Additionally the resource bar shows negative production in a different color.
      • Also we are currently working on the first refinement of giving army commands, so stay tuned.

      We hope you like those changes, please give us feedback in the forum.

      Probably the most important six words ever written in the Call of War Forum.

      Thank you for fixing this.

      The ability to conduct effective aerial reconnaissance is one of the keys to winning any COW game. The importance of obtaining real-time intelligence cannot be over-stated.
