Patch # 32 - Almost There
In just a few days we will be releasing Kingdom Wars to the public as free to play on Steam. Meanwhile we have two awesome patches ahead of us before we hit our F2P content milestone. Introducing today`s patch 33 - all about making the game feel and play better.
As a main feature we have greatly improved our unit AI, as well as worked on tasking large formations, and improving pathfinding for newly created units. Alliances are finally back - with current players getting their alliances back. Although please keep in mind - we could only bring back these alliance members who have already installed the game on Steam. And you should also notice more updates to the main menu, as well as preview option for customizing your heroes and flags.
We also worked on improving the flow of the game - building prices and construction time. New players will now enjoy quick construction time - that takes seconds and minutes instead of hours. Meanwhile late game players might 'enjoy' paying much more and waiting longer for their buildings.
And to end on a happy note - we are expecting more of our veteran players to join us this weekend, as everyone prepares to face the horde of new would be Emperors. And please don`t forget - next week we`ll be introducing a limit on how many crowns players can store in the account (999) and in their alliances (9999) as part of our effort to address Crown loss issues. So spend `em if you got `em.
