    Age 72 Final Changes

    Mechanics
    NW Changes - Peasants will now be 0.25 NW, and soldiers will be 0.5 NW and 1/1.
    SOT change - Will display information related to any active Kingdom Ritual
    Scientists - generated on a flat ratio similar to wizards instead of via RNG.
    Explore pool - remove kingdomwide explorepool and replace it with province level exploration pools.
    Paradise - will still consume explore pool, will be available only to Mystic or Rogue personality (Not Faery)
    Gains - Replace Networth Based Gains (NWBG) with a hybrid Land Based Gains (LBG) system that incorporates NW.
    Networth Protection - Significantly reduced for spells and sabotage operations.
    Op success rate - Success rates made significantly easier to achieve
    OOW honor gains - Significantly reduced.
    WW Chart Chains - In order to incentivize conflict between top WW kingdoms, we have altered the formula to provide additional WW points (scaling from the current if the kingdom you war is outside of the top 50 for land, honor, NW, and warwins) to double the current points.
    WW Bonus - Additionally, we are adding a new set of WW bonuses. Kingdoms will receive recognition on their kingdompage based on the number of WW points they achieve. Each additional 'tier' that they obtain will also increase their WW bonus -- land, honor, credits, etc -- by 10%. This is capped at a WW bonus that is 50% larger than the baseline bonus.
    Finally the WW bonus will scale with kingdom size under 20 provinces to reduce the potential for abuse with kingdoms that remain intentionally small in the number of provinces.
    The War Win bonus will also include a provision of additional land to every province's individual explore pool in both kingdoms, this is mainly aimed at helping provinces that are destroyed in war to have a chance to grow back to a functional size.
    WAR - Exploration during eowcf will have reduced cost penalties (from 500% to 250% of normal cost).
    Explore Penalty - Kingdoms smaller than 10 provinces will see an increased explore penalty.
    Propose War - Kingdoms will have the diplomatic option to Propose War to enemies in range and start war instantly instead of via attacks
    Several New Spells dedicated to the Paladin Personality Only


    Kingdom Rituals
    Kingdom Rituals (KR) are a new mechanic that serves as a kingdom-wide bonus.
    - The Monarch or Steward will select one of 3 rituals the kingdom will begin (similar to the starting of a dragon)
    - To complete the ritual the Kingdom must cast a new 'ritual spell' 100 times within 48 hours of the ritual being started
    - The ritual spell will have a very expensive rune casting cost; and have a difficulty similar to the most difficult self spell
    - A successful KR will last for 120 hours
    - Only one KR can be active, another KR can be started before the active KR ends, very similar to Dragons. Once the KR is completed, the previous KR will be replaced
    - All users will have a KR page; only on this page you will have the KR spell available to help initiate the KR
    - The KR page will also display various information such as: current KR status (type and strength), whether a new ritual is being cast, how many more successful casts are necessary
    - For enemies: an active KR will be displayed via Spy on Throne, where you will see which KR is active and current strength
    There are three kinds of KRs:
    1) Barrier - Increases defensive TPA and WPA by 25%; reduces gains via attacks against the kingdom by 10% (similar to Guard Stations); +10% DME
    2) Affluent (WAR ONLY, not EOWCF) - Increases income by 25%, Birth Rate by 20%, and draft speed by 25%
    3) Onslaught - Increases OME by 10% and enemy casualties on your offensive attacks by 15%

    Note: The Affluent KR can be initiated and completed at any time regardless of your stance (relations) however, if it is active and you are NOT in war you will receive no effects from it.

    Hi Everyone!

    I'd like to mention another feature we have implemented for this age, some of you may have noticed it in the short time it has already been live.

    We have made entering war a bit easier for Kingdoms that have arranged wars by adding a diplomatic feature called "Propose War". This will work like any other diplomatic feature in the game in that one side will Propose War and the other side accepts. Upon acceptance both kingdoms will enter war immediately.


    EDIT:

    There are several restrictions which I will try to describe here:
    - You must be within NW range of your enemy to accept a war proposal
    - Going live with our next code deploy; you can not propose war to a Kingdom that is not within NW declare range
    - At the start of the age you must be able to see the island your target is on
    - You can not Propose War during the first 24 hours of the age
    - The proposal will expire at the first tick after it is proposed, essentially providing only a maximum of 59 minutes for the proposal to be accepted
    - You can not propose war while you are in End of War Cease-Fire
    - All proposals are cancelled when you enter war
    - You can not propose war with a Kingdom that is currently in war

    Greetings Utopians!

    Another update we want to provide everyone:

    We have tweaked the gains formula. As mentioned in the Final Changes we altered the previous networth based only gains formula to a hybrid formula that takes into account both land and networth. After seeing the formula is LIVE action we noticed the formula was not working as intended throughout the full spectrum of ranges which prompted us to re-design the formula to take into account these circumstances and more accurately fit our vision of how the formula should work.

    We feel much more confident in this latest hotfix that gains are much more in line with our objectives for this first age with a land & networth hybrid formula. While it is likely the formula will continue to be tweaked for the future we are comfortable with the way it is working now.


    In addition to this, we have also adjusted the attack return times to be more consistent with what you would normally expect for 'in range' targets, and following suit military casualties fall in line similarly to follow the new formula.
