      Still no War Replays. Developers that can code replays, but not war replays. Makes sense.

              Thanks nb4 for posting the notes early.

              New content is nice, and I'm happy there are some bug fixes in it.

              But to be honest (and I'm sure annoying because i talk about it so much), I'd trade every bit of this update in a heartbeat for a fix to sandbagging/stacking and stalemates. New content just doesn't do anything for me anymore when these two issues exist.

                  I swear a few months ago I made I DomiNations suggestion that involved the sniper tower as part as an event that as I stated one shots infantry and has high range

                  I'd guess a few folks tossed around the sniper idea. I thought it would have been cool to have an offensive sniper that stays along the tree line. At least with this we can hope to pick off a few British range units before they close in... (No offense Brits!)

                This is great! But I don't think tis was released in Canada yet...

                  I love the idea of going overseas to bring back resources!
                  Its nice to expand the game beyond a single parcel of land.

                  This looks like a great update! I am excited!

                      Hope the 3 additional citizens won't cost a bomb. We really need more citizens

                        Nb4powerup Exciting Features. Can't wait...

                          Thanks for keeping us informed, Nb4powerup! Appreciate it!

                          Looking forward to the upgrades to aircraft, and the new library technologies.
                          Hopefully, the High Explosives chapters bring back the balance to the Demolition tactic.
                          Quite excited to see Expeditions in action soon. Looking forward to it!
                          Not so looking forward to the sniper tower - hopefully, they don't one shot, one kill the howitzers and supply trucks.

                          On a lighter note, finally, there's going to be some good use for the generals, other than having them attack farms during battles.

                          Looking forward to "The Road to Better World War Matchmaking" soon! Appreciate keeping us updated about it yesterday! Hopefully, the wait along that road isn't too long
                          Cheers! Keep the updates coming!

                          P.S. You can probably make this thread 'sticky'

                          If you are looking for an alliance, join one of the alliances in the Dominion family: Dominion Elite, Dominion Legion, Dominion Titans, Dominion Jedis, or Dominion Empire. All of these alliances are connected via the LINE chat app.
                          Add ID "_flash_" (Flash) on the LINE app and join the alliance family.

                            Cmon guys why complain. This is one of the best updates so far. The dock is becoming useful. The commando is becoming useful . New library researched should be cool.

                            As for sandbagging, its not as much of a NEXON issue as it is human behaviour. We as human always exploit a loophole if possible, isn't it the human tendency. At our alliance we do not sandbag, but i still don't see how NEXON is to be blamed. WIn some, lose some. Take it or leave it.

                            For war replays, once again a big no. People spend hours deciding a strategy to decimate a tough base. And as a victim you want all that to be revealed at the push of a button. No way.

                              Yes, the addition of war replays is critical to the games long term success.
