This week brought to us Castle Wars spree continuations, RoA improvements & bugfixes! Enjoy the summary!
 

Castle Wars Update!

Formations

  • All "formation differences" were removed from the game completely.
  • Line formation was removed. 
  • Now even if you reselect your units, they won't change their positions in the formation.

  • Horses now have more space in-between each other in a Square formation.

 

Quality of Life Changes
