    Age 98 Proposed Changes

    Welcome to the Proposed Changes for Age 98!

    Tentative Timeline:
    29 Aug - Proposed Changes
    31 Aug - Revised Changes
    2 Sep - Final Changes

    Schedule:
    WoL Age 97 End: Saturday, 3 Sep at 00:00 GMT+00:00



    General Mechanics
    • Desertions scaling and cap increased by ~20%.
    • Force Ceasefire will be more limited (once per Utopian Year) and have a higher cost to use (some Honor points will be transferred on Defensive FCF).
    • The losing Kingdom of a War will now have 10% of total Honor transferred to the winning Kingdom.
      The transfer will be proportional (higher Honor provs will lose more Honor) but the reward will be distributed evenly across the winning Kingdom. Winning a War therefore, will not award additional Honor.
      Bonus Honor will still be awarded to War winners according to their earned Tier.
    • War Networth auto-win requirements changed to opponent Networth dropping to 66% and a minimum of 72 ticks passed.
    • Protection Mode is now immediately removed upon End of War Ceasefire start.
    • Province Surrender – Individual Provinces will now have the option of entering Protection Mode during War if their Acres fall below 400 and have not made any offensive actions for 12 ticks. Protection Mode will be removed once End of War Ceasefire starts. Protection Mode will disable Aiding, Ritual, Dragon funding or slaying and any other offensive actions. Exploration will be limited up to 400 acres. Additionally, if more than half the Kingdom enters Protection Mode, the Kingdom immediately loses the War if Minimum Time has been reached.



    Buildings
    • Watchtowers Sabotage Damage protection effect reduced to 2.5% base (62.5% max).


    Science
    • Science NW per Book reduced by ~15%.
    • Several Personalities had their Science bonuses altered.



    Military, Attacking and Defending
    • Base Offensive Military Casualties lowered from 7% to 5%.
    • Bounces will generate Meter directly proportional to Offense / Defense ratio of a Traditional March. The floor has been removed.
    • MAP generated by Learn Attack increased.



    Relations
    • Spells and Operations will now be limited by Relative Province NW at Normal Relations only.
    • Unfriendly and Hostile will now be similar to War for the purposes of calculating Sabotage and Spell Success and Damage. Unfriendly will still cost 3 per Operation and Spell while Hostile/War keeps 2 cost.
