Round 78 Changes


  • Expedition land gains now reduced by deity multiplier even during submission period (the 48 ticks before devotion kicks in).
  • For anyone following along in GitHub, the name of round branches have changed from ODA-r# to just r# (ODA-r77 to r78).

    • The higher the level, the higher the base perk value (shown below here) becomes.
      • Levels up to and including 6: [Base Perk] * [Level
      • Levels 7 through 10: [Base Perk] * ( ( ( 6 - [Level] ) / 2 ) + 6 )
