Hello Commanders,

We are ready to deploy the first set of changes of the next patch 20.3 for testing on the Public Test Environment. Patch will commence around 08:00 – 09:00 UTC. Expected downtime is around 1 hour, unless unforeseen complications arise.
Please make sure to test these changes thoroughly and report any bugs and errors you may find here in the forum.

Changes:
  • The attack range of bases is now being visualized by a red border when selecting a given base.
  • The description of the relocation page has been updated to be clearer about the tiers of relocation cooldown.
  • When founding a new base, invalid fields will now be grayed out to make it easier to find valid places.
  • The Supply window has been reworked and allows you to redeem multiple crates at once now. Fields have been added to open or purchase multiple crates, displaying the needed Funds/Supply Points etc.
  • Improved the blocklist for handling ingame mails

Bugfixes:
  • Bug fixed that displayed the wrong button description with Spanish language (thx to nefrontheone)
  • Fixed a display bug in the detail window for the Construction Yard to show the wrong values for the next level increase in storage
  • Issuing multiple substitutions per day should not compromise the substitution counter anymore
  • Canceling a substitution on the same day it was given should not count as 1 substituted day anymore
  • Improved some localization errors in the Russian language (thx to KAT_Editor)
  • Upgraded Forgotten Units appearing at level 50+ now award loot as intended
  • Fixed a bug that caused the internal world forum not to display any threads
  • Player status in lists ingame should be properly update now if a player loses their connection

We are also working on the possibility to retroactively increase the max levels of already existing worlds after they were launched. More on that will follow later with 20.3 when we are ready to test this on the PTE.

Have fun testing these changes and tell us what you think.

See you on the battlefield Commanders!

  • Yes, we noticed an issue with the deployment of the patch. We had to rollback for now but will do another attempt later today.

    "visit base" and "view base", do not work now. The environment is listed as 20.3.

    A new feature is now when you sim a base or outpost the yellow text tells you who else is looking at the same target. Maybe worth adding this to the patchnotes, as this is a useful feature, I think.

    If multiple people are watching then it does not list, just says "by many players" - not very useful :)

    Something that is not present on PTE is a second field for purchasing multiple items with funds. I don't think we can cram everything into the limited UI space with 2 rows but we'll see.

  • I used more heigh for each item to take two columns. :-?

    Thank you, this is ugly, at least.

  • Is PTE down for maintenance?
  • fingers crossed for some more cap increases :D:D:D
  • in relation to the Design for Supply Window it's nice improvement overall.

    One minor tweak, can the "you own" text and quantity be increased in fonts size?

    Just a heads up, we are about to increase the overall max levels of the PTE to 80 and test the change of existing worlds adjusting the levels of everything accordingly.

    Later we will have another test where we will manipulate the POI rewards values.

  • First test raised some issue with the world so no changes where made, we will keep trying again once we fixed this.

    There will be no reset, the idea behind this test is to adjust levels on a world as it is, without resetting progress.

  • This test something went totally wrong...
    we have malus on level 40 bases, and here is a mix of 38 and 51...
    0d5a9b06d4e21c89fb526158d154d964.jpg

  • Seeing the same, mixture of old base levels and new bases 10-12 levels higher. A nice resource boost if you can get them, but 90% malus is technically a war crime :cold_sweat:
  • also "plan move base" does not work, and killing the upgraded units does not give any resources
  • plan move was not working properly prior to base level increase
