Thanks to everyone who waited patiently over the last couple days. Our servers were taken down for a some time while we made some big changes and added a lot of new features. The reason we reset save files is to put everyone at a level playing field again. Many of our first alpha testers started off playing a completely different game… we made that many updates! This reset is an opportunity for everyone to experience the beginning content again and measure pacing with the new features. The game is still in beta and constantly being worked on – but our focus is now directed towards polish and smoothness. Find the patch notes below~
PATCH NOTES: 8/25
(NEW) SCOUTING SYSTEM:
This is a new feature that allows you to actively fetch resources in the world of Factoria. It unlocks after defeating the first city, Bengali. The icon will appear in the bottom right, with a temporary icon. You can send out some spare tanks to find various resources, emblems, and maybe even Cores if you are lucky! There are 5 total slots to unlock. Light, Medium, Heavy, Artillery, and Tank Destroyer will all have different drop rates for resources, which you may discover over time. Hint: Light gives Oil!
Because of the influx of new resources, generators now produce less (300 per 8 hrs), but you can actively gain more by scouting. If player progression is impacted negatively, we can go back and continue balancing. Each character will keep a journal too, generating a random event every minute. You can read along to see how their mission is unfolding.
(NEW) SETTINGS MENU:
One of the most crucial features that we finally got around to making is the settings menu, found in the top left of your game screen. It will let you change graphics quality, audio settings, push notifications, and even Log Out! That means if you have multiple Google Play accounts, you can more easily swap between different save files. And if you’ve been crashing often, you can downscale the settings to accommodate your device.
(NEW) STORE PAGE:
The cash shop that we’ve kept closed thus far is now open (because data won’t be wiped anymore!). You can support the dev team by purchasing in-game Cores. It’s definitely not a requirement, so do it if you want to keep us afloat as we keep developing. And of course the option to watch ads will still reduce your construction timers.
If you follow closely on our social media, you’ll probably notice that there were lots of old characters being redrawn. We’re in the process of bringing up the bottom line for character quality, so the amazing Tenmuki has been hard at work redrawing. Redraws put in this patch include the:
– Cruiser Mk II
– Mark V
NEW TANKS IN DROP TABLE:
– Tier 3 | Semovente Da 75/18
– Tier 4 | Centurion Mk1
– Tier 4 | Tog II
– Tier 4 | Tiger P
– Tier 4 | Elefant
– Tier 5 | Tiger II
– Tier 5 | Jagdtiger
– Tier 5 | T34-100
– Tier 5 | T30
– Medium Tanks are globally tankier now with a 20% HP buff across the board. This is in response to their weakly defined role in most armies.
– The Sherman Easy 8 ability is changed to a self buff: 50% damage and 20% attack speed
– The T34/85 ability is changed to a self buff: 60% armor and 30% evasion
– The Light tanks Chaffee and AMX13 have the “Inspire” offensive buff.
– Tier 4 and Tier 5 Light tanks have buffed HP.
– Crusader III HP is buffed with an extra 20% evasion while the ability is active.
– T-50 Rush ability also has an additional 20% evasion added.
– Hetzer now has a single target 7 second stun ability. Hetzers gonna hetz ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
PORTAL OF CHAOS is temporarily closed until a handful of players have caught up again. It will probably open in a week or two!
