Hey everyone, I've tried to migrate our changes to be a bit more transparent, so you have seen a large chunk of this already.

Sanzo January 2017

I have no idea what to think about this

Doc January 2017

forgive the stupid question but does No Decay mean that if your Alliance gets the full 50%
in one branch of science when they are at 15,000 acres, they will still have 50% when
they are at 30,000 acres without further investment of research points?

or, would they be down to 25%?

Sanzo January 2017

No decay means you don't lose research if you don't grow. So in your case, growing by 2 would effectively cut your research in half.

Now I have a question:
Does the MP/TP War sci bonus effect regeneration too?


Also how about we take out stupid High Elves and leave Raven in?

Doc January 2017

nazgul attack no show in which alliance news? attacker? or defender? or both?

Both, no alliance news will be created at all.

That is how I interpreted it.

Smikis January 2017

what would be land gain for nazgul 500 vs 500 land raid?

About 49-50 acres, assuming target has no barren.

Scarlet January 2017

@ Sanzo

Raven is an outlier in play, either failing miserably or being unstoppable. Not sure if that's good or bad, but they will get rotated back in.

Sanzo January 2017

Lol raven is neither terrible nor unstoppable. Don't blame the player
And without raven to slow people down, we will just have everybody exploring out of control

HE are a shit race.

Gus Fring January 2017

Raven would be overpowered with current raid and pillage upgrades. You know that as well, dont try to fool the system:)

max January 2017

The changes has been uploaded.

Happy bug hunting [:D]

“Laboratories

25 Research Points (RP) per tick”

“Mines
Produce money for your tribe
Holds Produces
10 Citizens
300 crowns per tick
Exceptions
Dwarf mines produce 120% of normal”

“Hit 'n' Run
An attack that can be used to wear down a larger tribe.
Attacker Losses Defender Losses
3%
3%”

-From in-game guide

Are these changes from recent Ages that are not on the wiki page?

Gus Fring January 2017

So 1RPA invested in 1 branch would give 3.33%%? (assuming it's Linear as Scarlet said).

Sanzo January 2017

Doc I dunno what you are talking about. Those are alternative facts [8)]

Gus Fring:
1 - Raven would not be overpowered lol
2 - It's 15 RPA to max a single branch. 30 RPA to max out sci. (50% per branch, 100% allocated at once). 1 RPA = 6.66% science

Scarlet January 2017

The in game guide is up to date. Notice how hnr says it kills more in the text, which brings it to 6%

Dwarf mines is a racial attribute. The guide shows those on the race, but I added it to buildings. Attacks will show facials soon also. Ops/spells are next to get facelift.

Labs might be wrong. I was pretty sure they produced 25 though... I'll double check.

All buildings have always held 10 citizens by default, it was often overlooked.

Gus Fring January 2017

Sanzo,

I am really bad at maths. Could you further explain how'd you get to 1 RPA=6,66%?

if 15 RPA maxes out 1 branch to 50% that would be 50/15=3,33% per RPA no?
same as 30 RPA would max out 100%(2 branches of 50%) 100/30=3,33% per RPA

Kappa January 2017

Welcome to the age of Nazguls grabbing Nazguls

Smikis January 2017

HnR just have 3% for attacker, there is no extra 3 in any text in in game guide, so its 3% 3% for attacker,defender, which makes it look useless

Sanzo January 2017

Gus Fring:
Sorry., I got mixed up. You're right. 1RPA = 3.33%

Smikis: I see 3% for attacker and 6% for defender in game guide

Uhh... Do you mean YARDS??

Doc January 2017

Hi Guys! I hope you are all having a wonderful weekend!

@Gus: yeah, my maths is bad, too, but i'm getting the same number as you. i have little confidence in
my maths, though.

@ Smikis: thanks for reading the in-game guide before responding. in this day and age, knee-jerk reactions
to what someone says without consideration is all too common.

@Sanzo : that is correct, you do not know what i 'm talking about. i may go to suggestion thread from here
to see if we can get an emoji that looks super confused for your future posts. [evilgrin]

@Scarlet: since you are the one who posted the Age changes including the in-game guide and a response to
my question saying the in-game guide is up to date, it is most important that you understand my question
so that the players can all be on the same page as to how buildings and attacks work.

i think the best way to understand it is to open up 2 tabs. the first should be the wiki page and
the second should be the in-game guide. compare the text for mines between the 2 pages and the amount
of crowns received for each mine built per tick. next, compare the text for research points received per
laboratory per tick. lastly, compare the text on percentages of defender losses on hit n run attacks.

so, if the in-game guide is up-to-date, then my question was asking if the wiki is old and outdated
or if these are new changes and just were not included in the above changes to this upcoming age.

Fergx January 2017

Laboratories

Produce research points for your alliance to invest in Science
Holds Produces

10 Citizens



25 Research Points (RP) per tick

Smikis January 2017

Hit 'n' Run

An attack that can be used to wear down a larger tribe.
Attacker Losses Defender Losses

3% 3%

Can only be used against larger tribes
Requires 50% offense to break the defender
Generals take 2 months to recover after the attack

Still just 3% loss for defender in ingame guide, I know wiki says 6%

Scarlet January 2017

Ah, HnR is currently missing something (the kills section said kills double) Must have been removed after I edited it. Ill fix it and ask max to update it

I will edit labs, as they produce 1rp per tick. That was missed whenI looking for errors.


Thanks for noticing.
