Update 1.2 - "First Step" is Live!



Hey Guys and Girls,

It`s such an amazing feeling to continue work on Kingdom Wars 1. The team and I are looking forward to fulfilling all the promises we made with regards to Kingdom Wars future, and albeit delayed by a few months, we hope that today`s update will be a great first step in that direction.

Today we take another swing at releasing update 1.2. Following the problems with the original patch we broke it down into two parts, and done a lot of of additional debugging and polishing.
We have taken all the precautions to make sure nothing gets broken, and if it does, nobody will loose any progress (at most 60 minutes of progress will be lost if worst comes to worst)

This Part 1 will include 90% of changes from our original update 1.2, however we will not be forcing players to update (can keep on playing on older patch), and it will now include few core fixes, like: better performance, no multiplayer lag, steam overlay and store working for everyone, stability and crash fixes.

Updated on the new update 1.3 could be found here: http://steamcommunity.com/app/227180/discussions/0/358415206080453946/

After we have finally updated to 1.3 we`ll easily be able to patch the game in the future, and our priorities will continue to be getting Kingdom Wars stable but free by early-mid summer, followed by release the Lords and Vassals expansion. From that point on we`ll be working on copying various cool features to KW1 - from pathfinding and turn times to Russian localization, and smooth & stable multiplayer games.

And so presenting 1.2 "First Step"

-Fixed crash in the Orc regions view
-The Bank is now global shared between player towns
-Fixed but with Bank losing player units on game reload
-Fixed vast majority of out of sync bugs
-Fixed World Map bug with armies stuck in the mountains
-Fixed several visual glitches on the world map
-List of player online updates much better now
-New items in the Store: Small Treasure, and Epic Treasure
-Fixed various bug with workers not dropping off resources
-Player referral window is back
-Quest, Siege, and PvP rewards reduced by 30%
-Crown exchange price changed to 2500
-All the crown costs of buildings, either eliminated, or made much lower.
-Updated social options in the main menu
-Limit of 32 horse carts per army
-Fixed workers that wouldn't gather or quit gathering.
-Fixed sale pricing resulting in very low or negative prices



And here`s a small preview of what will be included in Part 2, in May.

-Eliminated almost all multiplayer lag
-Fixed Steam Overlay not working on Windows 10 and 8.1
-Fixed launch crash for some players after Windows 10 upgrade
-Fixed Market transactions not working for some players
-Fixed majority of bugs with losing units or armies due to connection issues
-New way to treat players losing connecting to server

Resuming work - Update 1.2 next week



Dear Players,

After vacation week for our core team, we are back to work on Update 1.2, and after resolving a few issues - we are now working on good way to release 1.2 next week. You know... without any of these tiny... town erasing bugs.

The plan right now is to update in several patches. We`ll release a small start-up patch 1.2A on Tuesday, and then follow up by releasing several mini updates B, and C later in the week.

The big part of the update 1.2 C will come on Thursday/Friday as a Beta update, that players will be able to opt-in to try over the weekend. If everything goes well there we`ll complete the patching progress by the following Monday.

Once we finally complete upgrading the game to 1.2 things will go much better down the road, as updating Kingdom Wars will be a breeze compared to hell we are going through with 1.2

Let us know if you have any questions or concerns about the patch. I do have to mention that this time around e`ll be taking all the precautions, to make sure nobody will loose any progress due to patching.

About This Game

Kingdom Wars is a free to play 3D MMORTS with real-time siege combat, without the pay to win element so common in the genre. Having evolved from Dawn of Fantasy: Kingdom Wars this strategy game offers lively online world, where players gather resources, construct majestic towns, and impregnable strongholds, direct citizens, complete quests in the service of mighty nobles and fiendish rogues, and eventually manage a global empire. All within an online realm that grows, works, lives, and breathes even when you log off. All this in glorious 3d world with stunning level of detail and epic scale - with vibrant towns and thousand strong armies. And of-course let’s not forget the glorious siege battles all in real-time! Developed by Reverie World Studios, Kingdom Wars is the result of several years of hard work by a new Toronto based studio, with members all over the world.

Features

Innovative MMORTS Approach
  • Wage war with neighboring regions or complete countless hours of quests as you unveil the dark secrets of Terria while managing a persistent kingdom and economy with thousands of other players. Socialize, trade, forge alliances and - best of all - battle against other players across the world, defeat their armies, and burn their towns!
Not Pay to Win
  • With Kingdom Wars free to play release our goal was to create a game of skill, not bigger wallets. We have followed player suggestions and tried to avoid the common pay2win traps. In Kingdom Wars majority of micro-transaction only effect cosmetic changes or unlock bonus content, that does not effect game progress and player interaction. All the other options are limited to one time use, to prevent anyone gaining unfair advantage.
Multiple Games Modes
  • Two additional singleplayer modes - including open-ended Campaign mode, and content-packed single-player Skirmish mode with both Lay Siege and Castle Defense maps - guaranteed to satisfy players of various tastes and gameplay styles.
Stunning Siege Combat
  • User-friendly Siege-oriented gameplay adds a whole new dimension to the battlefield as you ram the enemy gate, scale the walls, and place automated defensive systems, such as: stone tippers, boiling oil, and wall-mounted catapults.
Three Distinct Races & Styles of Gameplay
  • Kingdom Wars features three distinct civilizations: Elves, Orcs and Men, presenting a unique approach to these iconic races with three distinct styles of gameplay. Each race is complete with its own lore, language, world region and terrain, dozens of distinct units and buildings, hundreds of unique technologies, and each even has a different approach to economy and building style.
Fully 3D Dynamic World Map
  • Travel the MMORTS world using a beautifully-designed 3D World Map featuring scale replicas of all the NPC strongholds, quest areas, and the player's homeland.
Original Base Building Approach
  • Each player’s Stronghold features hundreds of buildings that look and behave like a City-Simulation game, but without any micro-management, giving the player more time to spend on the battlefield. In addition each race offers a different approach to building strongholds.
Complex Economic Model with Corpse Looting
  • Combines the complexity of nearly a dozen gathering possibilities, different for each race, with automated simplicity, allowing players the options to micromanage their economy, or leave it to run itself in times of war.
Realistic Weather and Season Change
  • The gaming world comes alive as you build and battle during winter or summer months, as you push your armies through heavy rain or snow storms. Your economy significantly changes from summer to winter, when different strategic options are available during different times of day and severe weather makes certain units useless.

I really really love this game the only thing I would suggest would be to add a couple more races to increase the diversity f people and enemies you fight. But overall, best RTS game I've played.

Great game, considering its free to play, that's worth a try. There are some bugs and it does seem like it would be much better suited to an up front fee as the game feels a bit constricting even if you spend a fair bit on it, but as you can tell by my play time it was worth the download and i have tried both orcs and humans and seen elf gameplay and they are all very unique in style.
A quick run down of what the races are like as the game doesn't give the best description of them:

Orcs give a lot of freedom in building and rely on mostly melee troops and have poor defensive capabilties.

Humans are very linear in building but have a good mix of all troop types and have good defensive capabilities.

Elves (from what i have seen) are a good mid ground but are really to unique from the other two especially in economy as their buildings produce resources instead of gathering with workers like the others. They rely heavily on magic and ranged in combat.

Hey addicting game, especially if you are looking for a medival/fantasy twist on the classic strategy / RTS type game play. I love this game because it combined the resource gathering and dependent villagers/peasant workers from Age of Empires with a beautifully done epic medival warfare gameplay that is reminscent of those epic scenes from Lord of the Rings.

Despite being a smaller title this game has a lot of potential in being a great play for anyone wanting to play a Co-op / Single player game laying siege and marching troops across the map.

Yeah, sure, it looks a bit derpy. Sure, the graphics aren't optimal. But this game has lots of things going for it. For one, it has excellent customer service, and it's not pay to win. The game overall is fun to play, if you like real-time tactics, albiet without unit collision it looks a bit like a derpy moshpit. The animation isn't optimal, but it's enough to enjoy the gameplay. The only real downside is that the game has such a dwindling community.

Its free, And for being free it has a alot of army style options, fairly interkit, similar to age of mythology or empires, its new, needs patches . but its really promising and again the army tactics and possibilities are amazing with Fun co op, really hoping this game keeps working for more co op abilities,

As well as the pay to play element isn't really there, you can “buy crowns” or do a never ending quest loop to get crowns , and that isn't very hard to do. And isn't too grindy as you can try new things every attack and the quests rotates missions.

If you going into this game accept their will be bugs but its fairly forgiving game but still really fun, with a feeling of long term progress. as well as this game i belive has a chance to be big on steam.

Great game beautiful graphics its just perfect but it has a little lagg in the battles. I played it 191 hours and i ejoyed every second. The achivements are really ez to get. You can build a city rise and army or more armies and take over other cities or fight other players. So if you like kingdom games and wars then you should try it out.
