Patch # 24 B - Road to Empire
Today`s Patch 24 B marks an important milestone - after months of non-stop work - we can finally say we have eradicated 95% of game stopping bugs.
With release of today`s patch our goal of making Kingdom Wars bug free is nearly achieved, with just a few more fixes left - that will be included in the upcoming Empire Expansion pack.
And talking about Empire expansion - we are planning the release towards second half of April, as the team works around the clock to add more and more awesome features. To make this expansion truly game changing, we are adding things like brand new user interface or new awesome alliances features - like sending reinforcements during battles.
Please keep in mind that today`s huge patch might create some minor new bugs - and if you happen to see something odd please let us know on the forums, and we`ll be sure to fix these new issues as soon as possible.

Can someone please try to Hotfix 4 'bugged' Large Towers in my Elven City Gondolin.
2 Locations are Large Towers build onto a Default Plot;
2 Locations are Large Towers build into another Large Tower.
I have attached a screenshot with the location of 3 out 4 Large Towers. The 4th Tower is at the dead end. The large arrow is pointing in that direction.
Thanks for fixing many of the bugs. :)
