April Work in Progress


With the war ignited, the Forsaken continue their campaign to weaken the Draconian Military. The Forsaken Council have made concessions for war-time and are authorizing the distribution of advanced hull blueprints for Forsaken Missions. Additionally, new Forsaken technology is being developed to better defend bases at long range.


Primary Features:


  • Base Defense Additions

    • We will be implementing a few new Base Defense options in April. Players will have the chance to diversify their Defense Platforms with these new additions.

  • Forsaken Missions Hull Blueprints

    • An additional Hull Blueprint will be added to each Tier of Forsaken Missions. There will now be two Hulls available in each Tier for players to earn.

  • April Event

    • The April event will be the next iteration of Drac Hunt where players will continue to hunt down Draconian Military Fleets. There will be a new mechanic that will allow players to earn an ‘event-mastery’ prize by destroying fleets a second time.

  • War Report

    • The War Report will refactor the Leaderboards and will include game stats previously not shown to the player in later revisions.


Game Improvements:


  • Research in progress will not pause for longer than the building repair time after the research building is hit.

  • Resolved an issue where Anti-Mortars effectiveness was reduced.

  • Battle Playbacks are now more consistent and should depict previous attacks more accurately.

  • Resolved an issue where ships were able to move out of bounds in Fleet vs Fleet combat.

  • Resolved an issue that allowed players to assign two Officers to the same task.

  • “Null” messages should no longer appear in the Great Hall.

  • Phalanx Anti-Missiles now function correctly against Draconian Outposts.

  • Forsaken Missions Prize Awarded screen now appear correctly and states the correct prize.

    the new hulls in the missions will be nice. only thing i can say is they need to be in longer. i started at the beginning of the missions and by the time i could do tier3, the FFA was cycled out, and now i can do tier3 and the bc-X is out this week. the missions have been very beneficial to me and i have gotten some nice things.

    two hulls each week on foresaken missions? what about this week?

    don't care for anything else listed, I had hoped to see diagonal land tile placement but well see my comment on that thread.

    Thanks

    Two comments:
    1. I still have "Null" in my Great Hall.  I refreshed.  Still there.  Then closed browser, relaunched the game, and it is still there.  Not that I care, just saying this is not accurate.  

    2. Is there any update on that nasty bug that causes your shipyard, docks, upgrades, researches, etc. to lose time randomly?   I.e. the game runs while you are at work.  12 hours later your researches, builds, etc. only have advanced 5 hours or so and you were never hit?
    If anyone else is still seeing the "Null" issue, please let me know. I'll see what I can find out about number 2; I presume this is different from times when you are attacked.

    Two sets of hulls available on rotation, I don't think there will be two hull in each prize tier each week.

    Core issue is still being looked into as we haven't found solid reproduction steps in-house as far as I'm aware. I'll follow up though.

    I'm wondering what kind of prize you are going to offer to encourage people to run through a raid TWICE.  it's either going to be horribly underwhelming or terribly overpowered.

    While we're discussing it, can you replace the typhoons in the military fleets with nemesis ships?  They are more fun to fight.

    you stole my idea for the new sub

    Jack Frost
    how about in the raid we get a new base weapon something that kills missiles or a new sub with 10 weapons slots 3 specials and 2 armor slots?

    If the master was a per tier thing I could get it for tiers one and two, Hell I'd do it just to be able to stay in the raid more than 1.5 days.

    I love the ideas!  I hope the turret improvements are 2 special slots - 1 shield/armour and the other for specials that improve range/damage done from the actual turret fire.  This would be really good!  I have been asking for improvements to base in the way of this and the land available for quite some time - requesting 2 extra as that is all you need for a decent base design that is more secure.  As for the hulls I have also asked for more to be offered so that's all good as well.  However I think a "Christmas in July" hull raid idea (like the Christmas one you had previous) would be a great idea for any newer people to the game to catch up and win some of the hulls they see the big people have.  I have put all these feedback ideas in to you, some you have or will use to some extent which is great :) Some already have their Shipyard II and Dock 10 and if you're lucky enough to have that to build and use them at a lower level...why not?  It'll allow the smaller levels to fight back with some kind of firepower that has a chance.  Thank you Kixeye, I now have faith that you HAVE been listening all along.  Still holding the candle of hope for a refit station in the shipyard, but I guess that ship has sailed and sunk? :(  I'm not sure how everyone will build these wonderful hulls without it....oh well.

    i like the sound of the event mastery thing cos one of my friends on here is lvl 38 and needs a lot of help to get tier 4 so more people might be willing to help out if they got another prize for it (hitting them gets them a prie and also helps the other person get to tier 4 1st time)
