      Attention, generals!

      The first release of 2020 brings the next batch of graphical updates for units and fixes a large amount of bugs, including some quite infamous ones!

      We began the appearance revamp of units end of last year. Today we take the next step with this endeavour and update the visuals of some of the most prominent units on the map - Infantry, Mechanized Infantry, Motorized Infantry and Militia. This week's graphical update brings the new look and feel in Call of War to the next level!

      Despite working on the optics of the game, we also spent the holidays tackling a large amount of bugs that were on our and the community’s list. Gone are the days when you lost a province to an enemy although an ally had stationed troops there to protect it. We also fixed the bug that could make supply drops appear in allied territories.

      Please find a full list of all changes below:

      • We improved the visuals of Infantry units.

      General:
      • We increased the zoom level when using advanced graphic settings.
        • You can now zoom in closer for a better overview and more details on the map.
      • We decreased the snapping range when using advanced graphic settings to allow you to give more precise orders for your units.
        • This allows you for example to send troops close to a province center, without attacking it.
      • We added an icon in the production menu that indicates the armor class of units.
      • We added icons to production and research tabs on desktop.
      • Wind sounds are now only audible when zooming out.

      I am a member of a coalition, not the leader, and yet I still got a notification that someone joined and it doesn't go away even when I check it.coalition.PNGmamber.PNG

      Allied forces stationed in a province now prevent an enemy taking over the province.

      There will be no battle between allied and enemy troops unless war was declared between the two.
      I'm sure glad to see this one! Normally, when in a coalition with others, I'll have a large army and will protect an ally's province from an enemy of his that I'm not in war with. So, to protect that province, I had to declare war on the attacking enemy- and get myself embargoed and/or attacked by other AI managed countries ... 8)
    • I wish that they would reduce the allocation of code design time from graphics to more fundamental issues such as:
      1. creating a Gold restriction method
      2. improving game creation options by adding in options to have speed 2x or 3 x etc
      3.dealing with inactive players in the early stages such as anyone who does not move in 24 hours of game start is REPLACED by a new player with maybe and extra 10% resources
      4. better information on player profiles showing ALL game maps played and results by game map. It is one thing to know that they had 19 solo victories, but it is another to know that there were 15 on a 10 player map and 4 on a 22 player map as opposed to the player who has 10 solo victories on a 100 player map.
      5. If you want to play with graphics, put in a bigger and a lot more different set of photos for the newspaper, as well as improve the writing.
      6. how about a Rule Set that actually explains things like how exactly popularity works, how the combat system deals with different classes of troops on each side,

      We will know that after update released.
      I am hoping they give us test events before they release it. Which is what they are doing

      creating a Gold restriction method
      The developers have to make money ... So I believe that best gold is to have a one time entry fee to the game (e.g. 30,000 gold for $9.99?) ... That would also keep trolls out and reduce the early game dropouts ... 8)
      Yes, no-one works for nothing. I do not get why players want to do that. they can pay money for no gold games. ;)

    • That is not possible. Just a thought for people who wants NO GOLD GAME. It will only be fair for the developers to get paid if people want no gold game. PS It is a suggestion, not implemented.
