Holidays Patch Notes 2015

Postby cc_Tadaaah » Thu Dec 03, 2015 1:53 pm

ATTENTION KEEPERS! Be sure to read these notes carefully as there is a lot of information going into this patch.

I'm not dressing up the patch notes because I don't want you to miss anything.

3 changes you may miss that I think you'll want to be sure to see:
  • Change Revenue Ranking: This is now Net Worth and not how much you earn in gold. So you'll need to invest the gold made prior to it counting towards your ranking. AKA Workers, Heroes, Hero Equipment, Workstations, etc.
  • By default, your dungeon will auto-select a group for the dungeon. This is to make it easier on new players; you can turn this function off in the settings menu.
  • Heroes will now require gold to recruit (like workers). Already unlocked Heroes will not be locked.

New Feature: City Raids Here: viewtopic.php?f=10&t=3879

  • Added support for more characters when typing in your name or a city name
