Week 2nd March to 8th March 2016
Forgot to add these into last week’s update –
It is now possible to buy an item for the large amount of chests now offered in packs but for those without an “Open All Chests” VIP level. You are now able to purchase “Open 100, 200, 300, 400 & 500 Chests” vouchers from the store . Unfortunately, there is no option to select which one you are using. If you purchase one of each and then select the chests you want to open, it only gives you one selection to open all – at no point do you get to choose which open all voucher you want to use. So you could use an “Open 500 Chests” voucher on 100 chests and waste some of its capability.
Another small feature that was added was the ability to buy and add VIP Points in a 50k denomination.
The highest available before this was 5,000 from the store (any higher levels than this were purchased as part of gold packs or won in events).
The release of VIP 18 made it more sensible (even more so than before, and it made sense long ago) to add a higher denomination for purchase to the store.
But why stop there, why not 75k, 100k or a slider that allows you to add as much as you want? As long as there is a confirmation click, or multiple confirmation clicks for very large denominations, this would be a useful feature.
2nd Mar 2016 – New Kingdom #831
GOW is still expanding. Kingdom #831 Bessera has now been added to the kingdom map as a protected kingdom.
2nd Mar 2016 – Hero Tree Level 10s Unlocked.
Level 10 research from the new hero tree research is now unlocked and able to be completed.
5th Mar 2016 – Crystal Dragon
A new monster has been released into our kingdoms. The Crystal Dragon brings along new standard gear, cores, pieces, and maps that can be obtained through hitting / killing the Crystal Dragon, farming the Crystal nest that it leaves behind once killed, or in certain gold packs.
6th Mar 2016 – New Kingdom #835
Kingdom #835 Jura has now been added to the kingdom map as a protected kingdom.
7th Mar 2016 – Kill Coliseum
The next kill coliseum was announced for this coming Saturday.
The kingdom who holds the coliseum the longest will get an additional 2 floors in the rewards wonder dungeon. This seems rather difficult to be excited about as most kingdoms have not experienced the rewards dungeon.
7th Mar 2016 – Wild Troop Wonder Combat is almost here.
Although Wild troops have been out for a considerable amount of time, they have been not been able to be used at any of the wonders as of yet. Once the ability to use Wild Troops at the wonder is available, we will start to see a shift in how players strategically use their troops and in what proportion, as it will no longer strictly be about who has the best cores and can replace reinforcements properly in the wonders the fastest. A part of winning will now be troop selection, and this will be a major tactical nuance given Wild troops’ combat characteristics.
If you have something noteworthy that happened in your kingdom this week please document it / screenshot it and send it through to firstname.lastname@example.org and I’ll try to get it added into next week’s update.
