    Age 58 final changes

    Here are the final changes for Age 58. As mentioned in the proposed changes thread we are focusing on usability features such as intel storage and target finding as well as preparing infrastructure for future features. As well as some race/personality changes we will be revising further the exploring structure of the game and reworking the war win chart calculation. Thank you to everyone who provided feedback, you can provide more comments here.

    Mechanic Changes

    Pool growth will be changed from 100 a tick to 50. Decay will be reduced to .25% per tick. In addition to the pool not decaying in war it will not decay if it is less than 10,000 acres.

    The explore formula curve will be modified so as to push out the curve. We will continue to utilise relative size to modify costs.

    The War Win chart formula will be updated to utilise your opponents war wins, as well as relative networth. <-- due to an issue this change has been rolled back and delayed until a future date (i.e next age).

    Usability features

    Intel Store
    We will add a Intel repository for players to store basic information on a province, such as defense and active ops on them with duration remaining. Intel will disappear after 24 hours unless its updated. You can see this information in a tab on the kingdom page of your enemy.

    Province target finder
    We will incorporate a province filter. Players can select all or particular races to view and the game will automatically display the 10 closest provinces both larger and smaller than your province. The data is collected from the games charts, which will now update every 2 hours. You can see this information in a tab on your war room.

    The target finder will not be online until all islands are visible.

    Due to an issue we have had to revert to the original nw*ww formula for the war win chart. We will look to change this at a future date, most likely not until next age.
