Paratroopers darken the skies

Dear Generals,
we know that many of you have been waiting for this moment for a long time and finally it has come! The Bytro team is very proud to introduce the new Paratrooper unit to live servers!

Paratroopers are deployed as airplanes which can take off from any airport controlled by a player. After attacking a land target, the airplane converts to a Paratrooper Infantry on the ground. Once converted into a Paratrooper Infantry the unit cannot be converted back into an airplane.

This unique unit will allow you to use a new set of strategies! Surprise your opponents and sneak up on them. Drop Paratroopers in lightly guarded or unguarded strategically valuable provinces to conquer them and their resources as fast as possible. You can also drop them behind enemy lines to open a second front and allow your forces to re-group and fight back even harder!

With the release of the new Paratroopers we implement some additional changes to Call of War:

Another major change is a reduction of victory points needed to win the game. In order to make end game battles even more fierce and meaningful we adjusted the victory conditions for single and team/coalition victories. To reach a solo victory you now only need 51% instead of the previous 60% victory points. Victory points needed for teams/coalitions have been reduced from 80% to 70% as well. We also lowered the victory requirement for 2-team maps and 1on1 maps from 90% to 80%.

Last but not least… rewards for all!

With the release of the new Paratroopers we are introducing additional victory rewards for all participants of a game round. Not only did we increase existing victory reward payouts, but added a fixed gold bonus for all participants of games who survived until the end and stayed active. So even if it seems that you are not able to win the game anymore, there is still some reward waiting for you at the end! The new gold rewards can be seen in the Newspaper tab "Rewards".

Further Balancing Changes:
  • manpower costs for Militia and Infantry units are reduced to 1300 instead of 1500 previously
All these changes will affect new games only.

We hope you like the changes and that the new Paratroopers allow you to become even more successful on the battlefield!

Paratroopers are coming!

Dear Generals,

We are excited to make a special announcement today: Paratroopers are finally coming to Call of War! Many of you asked for it for a long time, and we were listening.

Paratroopers could change the way Call of War is played in a major way, so they have to be implemented with care. We value the opinions and concerns of our players and don’t want to rush this. That’s why Paratroopers will be tested by our Frontline Pioneers in Beta games for several weeks. This gives us the opportunity to collect feedback and make necessary balancing adjustments, to make sure that they are neither too powerful nor too useless.

If you are one of the randomly selected Frontline Pioneers you can test Paratroopers in all Beta games right now! We will create additional Beta rounds, including speed rounds, for faster testing. You can send us your feedback in the Frontline Pioneer forum section or via submitting a support ticket from your Beta game. We will also create a feedback form that we will share in the Beta game notifications.

Final balancing values will be shared with the next release news, as they are subject to change during the Beta test. But we still want to give you a glimpse of how Paratroopers will work in the game, as the functionality is set:
  • Can only be built in the Capital.
  • Has high cost and high build requirements.
  • Is initially an airplane that can start from any airport.
  • Paratrooper airplane has low hitpoints and comparatively small range.
  • Can attack land targets: Airplane is replaced with a Paratrooper Infantry on the target location.
  • Paratrooper Infantry has a long cooldown period before it can start moving.
  • Paratrooper Infantry has slightly better stats than Infantry but moves slower.
  • Paratrooper Infantry can not be converted to an airplane again.

With this design we hope to enable new strategies, like invading islands off the coast or special operations behind enemy lines, while still making it a risky and costly choice with enough possibilities for the defender to protect themselves.

When Paratroopers are released in the near future, we will make them available only in new game rounds that are created after the release. This is to make sure that we don’t interfere with your ongoing war efforts and strategies.

We hope that you are as excited as we are about the future addition of this unit and look forward to its release in the upcoming weeks!
