Hey, looks really nice. I'll be sure to check out the patch tomarrow to finally have some fun doing those attacking random towns quests! :D

But: what do you mean, game credits on the main menu? (what are game credits?)
What did the change with dragons end up being?
And what kind of test levels are being added?

@Dreamwalker

Game Credits are listings of Responsible People and Companys


In most cases its a wall of Text which will State the Companys name and then a List of Staff

Saying


This Game was made by Company X

The CEO is Mr X

Graphics by Mr Y
Story by Mr Z

and so on


the actual form and display depends on the Company
especially since nowdays many Companys have pretty different Positions in their Staff



This might be Interesting tough.
We see Joseph and Kon alot here in the Forum and at least in the Announcements we pretty often See Alex writing something

But I am pretty sure theres quite a few more People behind the Scenes
which you rarely see out in the Forum :P
Tough I would always encourage any Company Member to show its Face on the Game and the Forum
its a good way of Advertising if people of the Company are seen inside the Game
it gives a feeling that people are actually interested in what they do :P

Tough I also understand that in many cases the Staff plays by Names unrelated to prevent people from annoying them *gg*

Oh. Those game credits. :o

Yeah, it might be nice to look at them, especcially if they come with catchy music. I remember in Medieval Total War 2, I used to just stay on the credits so I could listen to the awesome soundtracks.

well defending is not a problem actually
only attacking seems to be bugged

but in the first place there doesnt seem to be any pvp protection at all

I got attacked in my new small city which had not even the First Wall build
and I am on the Noble Quest so I am not even beyond the tutorial and much less in reach of the Defend thy home quest

We`ll see if we can include this in the next patch.

Last night`s patch did fix this - several issues with that including loosing influence.

Yeah we temporarily disabled that. We`ll re-enable in the next patch.

When will there be some performance updates? For example when selecting much troops, the game still has huge visual lag, or fighting random fights etc.

Performance updates are starting to come in the next patch - visual performance. For this pathfinding lag - this is the next big project we are working on. Expect it in time for Christmas.
