Round 11 Changes

Gameplay

  • Various UI changes. Military and Improvement page overhauled to save space. Some other smaller stuff. Some screenshots below.
  • No land generation for subsequent hits on the same target within 3 hours.
  • Land DP raised from 1.5x to 10x. This will prevent massive OOP farming when someone forgets to train, which can significantly impact a round (like in Round 10).
  • In-realm invasions and theft removed. The Empress has a tighter grip on the Empire now.
  • Late-joiner bonus increased to 0.50% per hour late up to max +100%, from 0.35% per hour max +50%.
  • Research Points (RP) replaced by Experience Points (XP).
  • XP is earned through invading (20 XP per acre), exploring (10 XP per acre), and from prestige (every 1 prestige = 1 XP/tick).
  • Minimum tech cost raised to 10,000 XP.
  • Tech costs go up 10% for every level. The minimum cost is as follows: Level 1: 10,000 XP, Level 2: 11,000 XP, Level 3: 12,000 XP
  • Schools removed. Bye, bye.
  • Diamond Mines moved to mountains.
  • Caverns removed. Factions with cavern as home land type have been moved to other land types.
  • Many new techs. See https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1…2126809132 (Sheet called “Round 11”)
  • Changed definition of successful attack (“victory”) to only count hits over 75%. In-realm invasions do not count.
  • Victories displayed on Status page and in Clear Sights.
  • Defender prestige losses on attacks reduced by 50% (to 2.125% from 4.25%).
  • Draft rate can now be set to 100%. Was fixed in backend a while back but a frontend bug was making it difficult/hard to set.
  • Construction cost reduced by 25%. (Raw cost is multiplied by 0.75)
  • Construction cost on discounted acres reduced to 25% from 50%.
  • Starting platinum and lumber reduced by 25%.
