    • Release Notes - 2021-04-13

      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.

      ohhhh I loved the log out button not for sec accounts but just to test things.
      when being betrayed betray
    • I dislike this. I don't feel that taking away someone's opportunity to scrape gold from a round is a good thing. The snowballing #1 player is mildly annoyed?

      Boo. Hoo. Send a cleanup crew, or don't bother stamping someone out who just wants to survive.
    • Meanwhile I have been on matches where there are some countries whose provinces are all gone but have a good number of troops. They were persistent in keeping their units not being found by others but they did not make an effort to take a fkin single city by the end of the game.

      It really just depends on the circumstances of the game whether to determine if a player deserves gold. At least this update can really force people to rethink their strategies if they see that the situation is not on their favor.
    • yea i agree with flag , flag can stay its good but the name is very terible , when i play as germany i cant see germany in ww2 but i see german empire in ww1 , i think that German Reich is very good name and its not offensive. We live in the present ,with name german empire they insult all the players ,who are interested in ww2 , i think that is nothing worng if they change name because since the German Reich existed in history, everyone would also get the desire to defeat the German Reich
