Call of War news and events July 2020
Bytro Labs publisher of Call of War here you have the news/updates and events for this month.
News and update:
A lot has happened since the last update and the next phase of Call of War 1.5 has started. We already told you about Doctrines, Attack Bombers and Rocket Artilleries, but there is so much more!
Let’s start with how long we plan on keeping this test phase running for. Your players might have noticed that we did not call it an ‘event’, as we did with previous iterations of Call of War 1.5. That is because we are confident enough to have Call of War 1.5 run longer than ever before. This test phase has an open end.
So far all our Call of War 1.5 tests took place on the 22 players “Clash of Nations” map. This time we want to scale things up a bit. We took the time to make the beloved 100 players “World at War” map Call of War 1.5 ready! During the Call of War 1.5 test phase, there will be a CoW 1.5 version and a CoW 1.0 versions of both maps available to players. The 100 player map also features all four of the new Doctrines on one map! We are already working on other maps to get them ready for Call of War 1.5, so more maps are coming soon!
With Call of War 1.5 paratroopers get a feature the community has been asking for, a ‘convert feature’. This new feature allows generals to have their paratroopers board a plane again after they got deployed. The ‘convert feature’ converts the paratrooper from an infantry back to a plane. This makes paratroopers much more flexible and a force to be reckoned with on the battlefield!
- Research does not cost manpower anymore. We replaced previous manpower costs by normal resource costs, specific to each unit.
- We rebalanced resources in general to alleviate resource constraints players experienced especially in the early stages of our last test event.
- The limit of more units adding more damage to an army is lowered from 15 to 10 units.
- Upgrading costs were reduced from 100% to 50% of the target level price.
- We added a new “Local Port” building, that allows units to embark or disembark faster in rural provinces.
Apart from these big changes, we did a lot of fine-grained balancing changes to individual units related to the community feedback, the new Doctrines and the new units in the game.
