Patch # 19 - August Patch
As summer is drawing to an end our team is hard at work on a soon to be announced second expansion pack, meanwhile - we thought it`s time to release another patch addressing most of the common issues reported by our players. Today`s patch fixes majority of known exploits and core gameplay issues, as well as introduces another new awesome unit - Dragon`s Breath. We also rebalanced all buildings costs and some other unit stats. Our next patch scheduled for the end of August will finally include the long-awaited Pathfinding - once again we would like to apologize for the delay - but we want to do it right. And be sure to check back next week for a full announcement on our second free expansion pack - to be released early this Fall.

Thanks for the continued support guys. Can't wait for the new pathfinding patch.
Entire Game Changed
By not allowing the skills to be changed in battle you totally remove a unique micromanagement to your game that I thought you intentionally added.
Then I see that you listed this change under "Minor Fixes and Additions" you have totally Ruined your game play and with the large amount of bugs and glitches it was the only thing making this game tolerable.
So, the elite units that already took up a questionable amount of army cap in regards to their usefullness now take even more. I'm guessing this is a hint to not use any elite units?
I swore off of this game until things were changed and the game was better. I must have been doing something wrong because everyone else is able to get much further and stronger faster than I ever could. I was not able to accomplish things at even half the rate that other people do. Now I come on here and check to see if any updates were made, and the only updates made will make the game harder, and slower, and less fun as well as putting in unneccesary extra units. There's going to be an expansion? This game plays like it isn't even out of beta, and you're already doing expansions? What?
Swordsman role is tank expecial ranged, so their pierce dmg is one of the highest in game, of course wearing armor means they are slow, and vulnerable to crush weapons(this is why crush res got lowered, and tbh still quite high anyway), nothing changed on their main role, tank slash dmg and ranged dmg. they even got slightly more dmg and hp.
Long story short their main role capability is improved.
Regards dragons and heroes, since units on next patches will get a general resistance nerf (all 3) of about1 0% , and dragons got recently augmented by alot their hp/dmg , the pop cost got augmented, consider also dragons now are not bugged anymore vs mounted units.
Another big issue was ppl running with dragon only army, in the future we wanna limit the number of special units you can have for army to something: like max 4heroes and max 2 dragons, but now for limit them we need to use the population cost.
We wanna also limit the number of normal troops for army to max 14 of same kind, this for avoid mono units army, or mono heroes or mono dragons, but this kind of script will require a lot of time, since we will need to re-write the entire army system ,so for now we work with the basic values.
If need dragons/heroes will get again a boost in hp/dmg maybe res(for dragons) for match their augmented pop cost. this untill we work on the new system, then we will lower again pop cost.(since the dmg seams fine probably res/hp for dragons will be best choice, while heroes will get more hp, also both will get more strenght values since now a royal dragon need to have strenght values similar to 15 normal troops)
Regards skill reset, it was never ment to be available during fight, enabling ppl to freely change skill on their entire army based on the opponent is a cheap shot, it will also have a crowns cost on next patch.
Ppl should think wisely how to skill their units, not have a magic button at no cost,that allow them to unskill-reskill all stats based on who they are facing.
So, basically what you are saying is that currently dragons are broken on purpose. A royal dragon does not match up against 15 normal units. But since some people run with dragon only armies you found that the best way to fix this is to make them not viable for anyone?
Regarding skill resets costing crowns, that's just silly.
Skill points can easily be spent wrong if you have a squad selected and two units lvl up at the same time. A more logical way would be that you can only respecc your units in your hometown.
Thank you for all the great work implemented in the ongoing patches! the only thing i am currently frustrated about is the siege damage of my green dragon.
I find it hard to believe that it does 25 damage against gates for the cost of 8 battalion cap, making it as strong as a regular siege ram seems more realistic and actually gives the dragons a good improvement that i think it needs and is not overpowered.
always fixing stuff that not broke how about new high end content and something to keep us coming back nerfing and lower cost of building is not what we need. Building cost is not a problem with in 2 days you can have your city maxed out. if you want to sell more crowns which by lowering the amount you can exchange means your trying to do add stuff to the store! there is no reason for us high lvls to come back to the game when nothing new beside nerfs are thrown in. just my opion from one of you long time players.
