<img style="padding-right:3px;" align="left"src="http://www.dawnoffantasy.com/icons/photoicon.png" />We're happy to announce the release of the second part of our Siegeworks expansion. The patch is live now, however…. Unfortunately, we found a few last minute bugs which have delayed pathfinding and a couple of the new units, but rather than delaying everything until they are ready, we thought we would patch in those things that are ready. So, what do you get in this patch? This patch expands on the Alliance features, allowing Alliance Leaders to assign roles and make some minor changes, as well as introducing the Alliance Bank - a repository for Crowns that members can add to and that Alliance Leaders and Treasurers can use to send Crowns to members. Some balance changes are included in the patch, addressing some imbalances that players have raised. Most importantly, this patch adds in four great new units - the Ruin Vine summoned by Enchanters to bring down walls, the Mantlet that shields your troops from incoming arrows, the Tosser that launches an array of deadly ammunition and the Grinder which slices into enemy units, grinding them into a bloody mess. We are sure you will have fun with these new features and units while we continue to work on pathfinding and the remaining units. Stay tune for updates next week

We feel terrible about having to delay pathfinding - but at the same right it just doesn`t feel right releasing a feature that we`ve been waiting for so long, without fixing a few known bugs first. Also two best units - Dragon`s Breath (human flamethrower on a horsecart), and Rootant (underground moving elven siege unit) - will be released together with pathfinding as well. I`m really hoping to have this ready sometime next week.

Noo worries! =) When waiting for something good you will always have to wait a bit longer and fixing those bugs and making the Pathfinding patch as good as you can make it will be more than enough to keep me satisfied!

Woot finally the patch is out... Is what I thought, I don't want to sound rude and I know I'm not the only one waiting for the Path-finding patch but this is a joke -_-.

Been waiting for ages since you mentioned it will be out in next patch, then it gets delayed and you mention you plan to release it on Monday but no later then Thursday (In other words it's coming out Thursday).
But then something goes on and it's another delay and will be out in 24 hours, so I'm thinking (okay fair enough least it could be my birthday prezzie for 5th July)...
Bam a balance patch with units I couldn't care less about as I'm planning to remake my city just for this Path-finding patch to find out it's taken you over a week to work out there's a bug.

This has got to be a joke -_-, sorry again for any rudeness but it's just really annoyed me, but oh well I'll wait till you fixed it, I'm sure and hope it will be worth the extra wait.

I'd rather have it with the bugs.

Also can you maybe edit those patch notes to be a bit more clear? Did cavaliers really just get +10 health points? What is the -5 on royal dragons? Etc. The person who wrote the patch notes apparently can't spell strength either haha. At least have someone who speaks fluent English do a quick 5 minute proofread, no?

We're no happier about the delay of pathing then any of you, unfortunately we don't wish to introduce game crashing bugs for everyone :(

Many new great!

But it would be better to fix bugs before releasing more units out. Some errors come to be ridiculous! I do not know yet if it is the unwillingness of the team or game marketing company to sell more ...

If it is to sell more, then it is to sell more junk, cause errors in the unit that sends u get STOPS and walk out of units that sends u get the wall down and suddenly it is pathetic ...

I will spread the good news in the face for all friends to see that again, this game is not worth to be bought! Pay to have errors, is no excuse, and say that the company is not too small! Rather than spend any time adding new features, fix bugs first, then put news.
Time to add units do you have? And I do not have time to correct mistakes of the units are there? Nice work pathetic! Slow, slow, late and pathetic!

Darwain

Bugs happen, it isn't easy to find them and to correct them. They thought it a better idéa to release what works and then add in the things that doesn't work atm. What is so wrong with that? You get stuff instead of nothing and you know they will come with the pathfinding patch!

+I'm having a good time with DoF now and so seems many others to have. So why complain eyy? Be patient let them get it working!

The problem is that they know where the errors are, already has a long list, but will not fix it sell more, then push new things for us, and leave us with the same problems ...

We are made of idiots, and apparently some like to be treated like that!

I would not think that would be the case at all. Tell me how does this free patch, give them more sales eyy? New units yeah, but crowns can be earned through playing.

And a question, do you know how to code? Programming mate? Because I have done some of that stuff and I tell you it's not easy!

More game items = new game sales
Correct old mistakes = not increase sales, just makes those already bought happier!

Nobody here spoke of crowns, I'm talking about new game sales ... For someone who already has scheduled games, or you did not understand the meaning of the claim. So you should be happy.

They are located in the market at this time.

In the Market, WTF. Why in gods name would you do that. The Mantlet is the first piece of siege equipment a human commander should be able to build. I can build siege towers and trebuchets, but not a Mantlet. So early game, I can upgrade 2 buildings or I can build a Mantlet. What a joke. I get Dragons for Crowns, I get Dwarves for Crowns, but a Mantlet. Give me a break. What's next, do I need to spend crowns to cast a heal spell? Is that the way things are going?

.................
some comments im readng here!
some people here never had experince with Indie games, and are properly used to carebear WoW crap.

you guys need to calm down, iv played and am playing currently an MMORPG by an Indi company. compared to this game, this is a dream!!!!

There doing an good job in regulary updating with patches and fixes and the patches are stable!

EVERY GAME that doesnt have a super large company behind them like Blizzard for WoW will have these issues that stuff gets delayed abit or things that was said will be in the patch wont make it. AND ALOT OF GAMES are doing MUCH MUCH MUCH WORSE!!!!!!

so seriously.......!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Unbelievable simply unbelievable. Folks SO upset because the dev's made the call to hold off on pathing fix, which, I might add (from the sounds of it) caused CTD. (really you want them to release the patch as is so we have to deal with the pathing that is still not fixed AND CTD's... not a good call imho)

How quickly people forget.... there are what? 5 developers working hard on this game? One of which is a graphics guru and has almost nothing to do with the code per say (no offense Mark).

It's my hope, that the dev's realize that quite a few of us thank you for the update, holding off until the main part of the patch is READY to go live, and most importantly thanks for all the hard work you guys are doing. (Yes Zone, you are to continue working from 5 am - 9 pm, 7 days a week without rest or a life outside the game, your already doing that now, so why stop)

Anyways, Thanks again for the update and fixing some of the other bugs that weren't mentioned on the list but fixed anyways.

Look forward to what's ahead!!

Part of the enjoyment is watching a new underdog gaming company grow with their products. Hopefully this title won't take too long to grow though ;)

Loving this patch :) Glad you guys are holding off on somethings and teasing up with the stuff that works. Im sick of playing games that release patches that lead you to crashing and other stupid bugs :P
Testing is a key part to the development process of any piece of software including games so all the haters need to be patient and remember how small the dev team is.
Really nice patch and Im excited for the pathfinding :)

I do hope that they allow you to build the new units without crowns though, hopefuly that is just a temporary addition.
Great job guys!
