Gems of War now in Russian!

Greetings Matchers,

We are pleased to announce that Gems of War now supports the Russian language!

To celebrate, we've introduced a new kingdom, Urskaya. Located in the Northern reaches of Krystara, it is the home of the Urska, and their King, Mikhail.

Visit Baba Yaga to learn about the strange dreams that have been plaguing your sleep, punch lots of bears, take their stuff, and collect 7 new troops including: the Leshy, the Urskatyr, the Domovoi, the Vodyanoi, and Yaga's Hut, along with Baba Yaga and King Mikhail themselves! (Notice a theme? Coincidence? We think not!)

Happy matching, and удачи!
