    Why you don’t give us detalis about Thursday, 9th of May 2013.

    I would love to have the ability to move troops and ships around from city to city outside of the support function. This would greatly improve the playability of the game and make conquesting much more simplified as you can maximize the ability of each city to support other cities in expansion attempts.

    I feel this change would make the game more realistic and empower players to manage their cities more effectively by enabling them to change the amount of troops and ships in each city.

    The ”Eventkalender” (who is from Germany) is avaiable in other countries?

  4. M. Schabel says:

    When will further information on the heroes be released? I’m very curious how they will work and what they feature.

    • Jordan Coutout says:

      We will be able to tell you more about the Heroes in one or two weeks. Stay tuned!

    The new Update makes big Problems.
    If you make one Aktion you can`t make another one.
    so you must lock out and for the next Aktion you must lock in again.
    Building ships isn`t possible
