Epic equipment/battles and Android update released!

Postby kaw_admin on Wed Jan 25, 2012 11:51 pm

We are releasing our first ever equipment system in Kingdoms at War! To prepare for the update we are making the following changes below to existing items:

    -Permanent items from epic battles and map complete reset bonus items will be converted to slottable (equippable) items
    -Pro pack items will remain as is and still apply in your stat profile section for percentage bonus in attack/defense and spy attack/defense
    -New epic battle will be released soon shortly after the update
    -3 new slottable (equippable) permanent items will be released and obtainable from the new and existing epic battles.
The first 4 map complete reset bonuses will provide the permanent items and the additional ally slots. All future map complete resets game completes will still remain as is with 50 ally slots per reset. There is currently no cap on how many times you can reset to recieve these bonus ally slots. The completion reset items will be slotted/(Equippable.) The bonus ally slots are linked to the resets not to the items so you do not need to equip the item to gain the extra ally slots.

This update will pave the way for continual content releases and in the future it may be possible to obtain permanent items not just through epic battles.

We are still completing the features for Android to match our existing iOS and web users and release 1.5 also now available:

    -Friending/following feature is now available
    -Push notifications have been added
    -In-app purchasing from the oracle has now been enabled. (pro packs
    are currently not available for android)
    -Clan event listings, view ongoing wars and epic battles
    -Various bug fixes for older and more generic Android clients are now supported

P.S. Thanks to Wulf/Belle and the rest of the moderator team for their contributions.

*UPDATE

You must install the latest version of Kingdoms at War for iOS in order to see the new equipment section and your existing items. There is a delay in releasing the new features for mochi and facebook. Android will be updated soon with the new features also.


*UPDATE 2

We've received a fair amount of feedback from the community about the recent changes to the reset bonus items.

Just so everybody understands our original reasoning for this change, we'll do our best to explain. In the past, land complete resets were a big accomplishment and deserved to be well rewarded. With the introduction of T4 buildings and the Highlands though, the significance of these accomplishments have diminished. It's many times harder nowadays to complete the Highlands and reach build completion, and yet the original land complete resets are still being rewarded as if they were as difficult to achieve as they once were.

Moreover, players who progress into their T4 upgrades or the Highlands without completing their resets have too much to lose to go back and reset, so it's no longer a viable option for them. We felt that continuing to significantly reward resets wasn't the best thing to do, as we would rather have players have fun and build up their kingdoms without having to stop arbitrarily at their 25th land just for these bonuses. Well-connected players nowadays can also achieve these resets without a great deal of effort, so it felt like we were over-rewarding something that was neither natural nor all too fun. Making these reset bonus items into equipment items was seen as a way to help balance things out, while not removing their benefits altogether.

That being said, we've heard your feedback, and we agree that the many players who put the hard work in long ago to earn these bonuses deserve to keep their promised benefits. As a result, we've decided to undo the changes to the reset bonus items.

Reset bonus items will no longer be considered equipment, and will return to the way they were prior to this update. Their bonuses will always apply, and you won't need to equip them to benefit from their bonuses.

This is currently being worked on right now as this is being posted and it shouldn't take too much longer for the change to be reversed.

Looks like it'll be pretty neat. Not sure why the items should be equipped instead though.

NO.

Propack items are not equippable. They will continue to work the same as they always have.
