Feb 18, 2019 | Crates and Pirates!
This is a reminder for those who may be new to the game or those not yet accustomed to all the "stumbling on crates" action going on...

Remember, once the game clock resets each day, you have four opportunities to stumble on a crate full of beautiful, shiny gold. This means that until you have acquired all four of the daily crates, it is recommended that you immediately check your gold (at the top of the page) after EACH attack, sab, recon, or recruiter action! Many players are not realizing they have stumbled upon a big fat crate of gold and the treasure-hunting pirates who are watching the battlefield are able to steal the crate gold. Even if you do notice your extra gold, you must spend it quickly or there is a danger that it will be stolen.

So, keep the pirates away from your gold by keeping a very close eye on those crazy crates.
Feb 11, 2019 | Pesky non-working cards
Fixed a problem preventing a Sabber's Delight card from being used.

Note: You can't tell yet how many cards of each you have (other than the protect cards). This will be addressed shortly.
Jan 10, 2019 | Armory fix
Fixed the bug in the armory preventing you from spending in one transaction when you had damaged weapons and an available Unbreak card. Sorry about that! (Who'd have thunk HTML doesn't like you having a form within a form?)
Jan 2, 2019 | Working cards, extendable recruiter buffs, fixes
Most if not all of the cards that come out of the crates should be working now. Find them in your base or armory and check the appropriate boxes to play them. Time starts after you click "Use selected cards".

In case you missed it: (subject to change)
Epic

  • Respec card: For 30 minutes, change your race while keeping your upgrades, train your soldiers and spies for free (spes and sentries can be reassigned to untrained!), and sell weapons for free (same price you bought em)

Rare

  • Attack card: For 30 minutes when you play the card, get an attack buff (similar to the Charge! event, but just for you)
  • Sab card: For 30 minutes, get a Sabber's Delight buff
  • Protect card: Protects you from attack or sabotage for days (like vacation mode, but you still earn and can spend gold--you just can't attack)
  • Size Doesn't Matter card: Like the event, but (are you seeing a pattern?) just for you
  • More special events possible soon...
  • Some single use cards, as well, like:
  • Unbreak card: Returns all your current weapons to pristine condition--even the sabbed ones, if they haven't already been broken!

Common

  • Gold: Instantly receive gold (amount varies with rank and will scale as the battlefield grows)
  • Turns: Get another couple of attacks in
  • Soldiers: Instant soldiers, just add water (1-3 hours worth, based on your current maximum rate)
  • Gems: A few gems to help you grab some more free game goodies


Couple notes to clarify:

  • Bought crates at this time do not have a chance to contain gems. It would be weird to spend gems on a crate that contains gems!
  • Common crates (whether bought or stumbled upon) open instantly. This means gold, soldiers, turns or gems are immediately added to your account without further action. Watch out for those big windfalls of gold after recruiting or spying! Check your base to see which crates you are still eligible to open.
  • The chances for attacking, spying, and sabbing only apply to the first of such actions on any unique target per day. In other words, if you don't find the crate on your first recon on that person, move onto the next.


Misc

  • New filtering in logs - use your ctrl/cmd key to select multiple items to filter by. Crates and daily login bonus, for example, fall under the "Bonus" category
  • The buffs that have been expired have been removed from the list on the premium page.
  • You can now extend the recruiter buffs with the same number of gems as it takes to buy a new one. This will allow you to have a buff that lasts 2 or more weeks without having to remember to go back to click the button each week..


If you notice any problems with them, let us know

Crates!

  • A variety of game actions now come with a chance to stumble upon a crate full of goodies! Push all the buttons each day to see what falls out.
  • Most will contain extra soldiers, gold, attack turns, or other chaotic surprises
  • A few rare crates will contain playing cards good for one-time use whenever you need them (possibilities include attack boosts or special events)
  • Elusive epic crates will contain powerful playing cards that can make or break your game
  • If you can't get enough of them, you can buy more crates with gems

Plan to have your game plan upended by this chaotic last minute change! Further details will be revealed when limbo ends.

Possible crates (subject to change)

Epic

  • Respec card: For a short time, change your race while keeping your upgrades, retrain your soldiers and spies for free, and sell weapons for free (same price you bought em)

Rare

  • Attack card: For a short time when you play the card, get an attack buff (similar to the Charge! event, but just for you)
  • Sab card: For a short time, get a Sabber's Delight buff
  • Protect card: Protects you from attack or sabotage for days (like vacation mode, but you still earn and can spend gold--you just can't attack)
  • Size Doesn't Matter card: Like the event, but (are you seeing a pattern?) just for you
  • More special events possible soon...
  • Some single use cards, as well, like:
  • Unbreak card: Returns all your current weapons to pristine condition--even the sabbed ones, if they haven't already been broken!

Common

  • Gold: Instantly receive gold (amount varies with rank and will scale as the battlefield grows)
  • Turns: Get another couple of attacks in
  • Soldiers: Instant soldiers, just add water (1-3 hours worth, based on your current maximum rate)
  • Gems: A few gems to help you grab some more free game goodies


Notes

  • You can earn one crate per day with each unique game action (currently: attack, recon, sab, click--so 4 crates per day just from playing)
  • You can buy up to 5 crates per day on the premium page (lower left, below username change)
  • These numbers are subject to change
  • There currently isn't a button to actually use epic or rare cards yet (I'm working on it!) but if you happen upon a crate that contains one, it will get stored for use when I do get that written
Jun 17, 2018 | Age X - Cleared for takeoff
Looks like things are looking pretty good now, after a very rocky limbo period.

Age X Changes

  • The CPM formula has been overhauled. Again. A side effect is that we've reduced the max CPM by half to try to get unit counts back under control.
  • Banking credits is no longer an automatic 100% effect. You must upgrade your ability to store credits, with 40% being the base rate, and upgrades available to bring you back to 100%.
  • End of Age process overhauled. Again.
