Listen, all y’all, it’s a Sabotage!
Like Theft and Sorcery had a baby: what was left of the old spy ops have been turned into a hybrid system borrowing from Theft and Sorcery.
Go to the Sabotage page, select target, pick your operation, and select how many spy units you wish to send.
Damage is based on a Base Damage, which can be be increased and decreased through perks.
Damage is calculated in the following manner:
Ratio Multiplier: 1 + (([Saboteur SPA] - [Target SPA]) / [Saboteur SPA]), min 0, max 1.
Target Multiplier: the sum of the target’s sabotage damage suffered perks (for example spells or buildings which lower sabotage damage).
Saboteur Multiplier: the sum of the saboteur’s sabotage damage dealt perks (for example spells and improvements which increase sabotage damage).
If base damage is 2, Ratio Multiplier is 1, Target Multiplier is 0.25, Saboteur Multiplier is 1, and you send 5,000 units, damage dealt is: 2 * 1 * 0.25 * 1 * 5,000 = 2,500.

Op Center and Intelligence replaced by Insight: Only available once the round starts. Real-time view of all advisors of all dominions which are not protection and whose rounds have…
Gameplay getRecentlyInvadedCount() changed from default of 6 hours to of 24 ticks. getRecentlyInvadedCountByAttacker() changed from default of 2 hours to 8 ticks.
