Just wanted to give you folks a heads up on a change that will coming out in a few days time.
In an effort to make the game a little more “fun” and a little less intense, demanding, or perhaps dry, we wanted to add some more little rewards.
After the change, every time you claim a settlement, the people will reward you with some small gift. Sometimes it will be Gold, Mana, or Valour, and about 20% of the time it will be a Volunteer. A randomly drawn card of the settlements race.
The old Volunteer systems has been removed to make way for this new one. In this new system, you can control and play with the volunteer as if you had played it yourself, and anytime before it dies, you can pay 1 Hero Coin to add the card to your collection.
This will undoubtedly make the game a little easier for a while, and we’ll need to do some rebalancing, but I hope in the end the game has a more mainstream appeal and more fun.
