2. “Ark of Osiris” Optimizations

In order to ensure Governors can have the battles of their dreams, to make room for more tactics and skill expression, and to bring the fun of Ark of Osiris to even more Governors, we will be making the following adjustments:

1) In order to allow more alliances to participate without making significant changes to the current rules, alliances that are not in the top 20 of their kingdom will now be able to take part in Ark of Osiris, grouped separately with other alliances of similar power levels. For exact details, please see the event page after the update.

2) Increased the number of teleports earned after the first occupation of an Obelisk from 5 to 8. Teleports can now be used even if troops are not in a building.

3) Removed the “Divine Aid” skill and adjusted the effects of other skills. Adjusted skill effects will be viewable from the Ark of Osiris page after the update.

4) Adjusted the rules for occupying buildings. First occupations will now take 3 minutes, and further occupations will take 2 minutes.

5) Adjusted the rules for gaining Energy Points. Energy Points are now gained faster. Alliances will no longer get a boost to their Energy Points after suffering heavy troop losses, but alliances on the side currently losing will get a boost.

6) Optimized the Ark of Osiris map display.

7) Significantly increased the rate at which severely wounded units are healed.

8) Reduced alliance score earned from caravan visits, but individual score will not be affected.

3. “Lost Kingdom” Optimizations

All Seasons:

1) During the “Eve of the Crusade” event, the gathering speed bonus awarded to the 4th place kingdom has been increased from +5% to +15%.

2) When a kingdom enters “Eve of the Crusade” for Season 1, the “Resource Reserves” bundle will be replaced with the “Bumper Harvest” bundle.

3) During Stage 1 of the “Past Glory” event, there will be a cooldown for donating gems.

Season 2 only:

1) The Lost Kingdom preparation event will be split into a Preparation stage and a Matchmaking stage. Governors will be unable to immigrate to kingdoms in the Matchmaking stage.

Season of Conquest only:

1) Optimized the logic for refreshing Bastion quests to ensure that refreshing will not give the same quest.

2) Optimized the Bastion window display to include the Bastion’s level.

3) Lowered the power of Kahar the Hidden.

4) Reduced the upgrade time required for certain levels of the Crystal Mine and Crystal Research Center, as well as for some Crystal Research Center technologies.

5) When an alliance joins or leaves a coalition, any ongoing rallies launched by alliance members will now be automatically cancelled.

4. Other Optimizations

1) Added a Commander Choice function to the Daily Special Offer page. Governors can now choose the commander for the sculptures included in each Daily Special Offer. Commander options will expand as a kingdom grows older.

2) Adjusted the time at which certain commanders become usable. Commanders that could previously only be used after a kingdom’s history passed 310 days can now be used after the kingdom has passed 300 days.

3) Optimized the Battle Log display to be more aesthetically pleasing and make information easier to read.

4) Fixed an issue where Passport Pages could still be used to immigrate to a Nascent kingdom, which should have been impossible.

5) Optimized the alliance building construction window display to more clearly show Individual Credits earned.

6) Optimized the disband alliance function. Now, when an alliance has only its leader left, the leader can apply to disband, and after a set time, the alliance will disband.

7) In the “Ceroli Crisis” event, general Keira will be replaced for a time by a new general, Wafura. Governors can challenge Wafura during the next Ceroli Crisis event. Afterwards, Ceroli Crisis will include both Keira and Wafura.

8) Added a secondary password function to settings. On the Settings page, you can now set a secondary password required for performing certain operations in order to better ensure account security.

9) Optimized troop march operations. You can now control troop movement and give marching orders from any level of view.

10) On the Supply Wagon page, 7-Day Limited Wood/Stone/Food/Gold Supplies will be available long-term, and normal 7-Day Wood/Stone/Food/Gold Supplies will no longer be available. Any 7-Day Supplies already purchased will no longer available for purchase once claimed.

11) Optimized the operation experience of decorative buildings. “Demolish” has been changed to “Recycle”. Recycled buildings will be saved in the City Editor. Rebuilding them will no longer require spending any resources.

12) Adjusted the immigration function. Kingdoms can now only accept one immigrant per minute.

13) Added a private chat notification function. When turned on, you will be sent a push notification when you receive a private message.

14) Fixed some power display errors affecting certain commander skills. Actual skill effects have not been affected.

15) Optimized the target selection rules for Cyrus the Great’s “The Cyrus Cylinder” skill. This skill will now choose targets the same way as all other area of effect skills. Skill damage has not been changed.

16) Added Polish localization.
