Things have been quite busy over the last few months! We’ve been hard at work implementing the next steps for introducing Drone Command, the titular building for Drone Age! In August, we gave you a sneak peek at the latest building to be implemented into DomiNations. Today we’ll be taking a closer look at what that brings to your arsenal with the addition of Directives, Offensive Drones, Defensive Drones, and War Defensive Drones. Directives are the core of the Drone Command experience, and they’re going to be taking center stage here today.
As we shared in our August update, the Drone Command building will start with One Offensive Drone and One Defensive Drone, then a separate War Defensive Drone that will be active on Defense to give you additional strategic flexibility when joining in World Wars. Each will have a core set of Directives that you can freely swap in and out before battle. When...
For the future of DomiNations, we wanted to be able to share the content you, as Leaders, can look forward to, all in one easy place. Our goal with Sitrep is to bring you up to speed on the state of DomiNations, including new features, updates, and opportunities for the community to get involved.
The team has been hard at work on upcoming features for Drone Age. We just released a teaser of things you can begin to think about regarding the Drone Command building. However, that doesn’t mean we have been leaving other aspects of DomiNations behind. We’re taking a look across the board at the economy of resources within the game and listening to player feedback that you’ve been sharing on the forum and social. We’re also looking at Troops across the ages, your experiences with features, and how players approach combat. Thanks to your generous feedback and passion, I’m happy to share that we have a few updates in the works!
We hope you’ve been enjoying the new upgrades that came along with Drone Age earlier this Summer! We’ve been hard at work implementing the next step for the latest Age to DomiNations and thought we might be able to give you an update on what’s to come.
We’ve been keeping an eye on the feedback in regards to the Council Chambers and how we can make this a much more rewarding experience. In this hotfix, we’re adjusting councilor stats so that they are a bit more impactful with your civilizations! All Councilors’ stats for 1-4 stars have received stat increases for both Peace and War, Legendary Councilors received no updates. As an example, we wanted to highlight a few councilors to give you an idea of what to expect.
We hope you’re all enjoying the latest additions to DomiNations with Drone Age. We still have plenty more on the way this summer, and in preparation for an ideal experience in the future we’re covering some of the issues that came about at the launch of the newest Age.
Patch 11.0.1 features the following fixes:
Fixed an issue where Estates and Houses would revert back to their Dawn Age art after upgrading to Drone Age.
Corrected the Range on Redoubts, they should now be able to strike incoming aerial units as they originally used to pre-patch 11.0
AFV Trap was found to be spawning Level 3 AFV Defenders with incorrect stats, this is now corrected.
Drone Age players attempting to use Norden Bombsight would receive a crash. This issue has been resolved and Drone Age players can now utilize Norden Bombsight without issue.
Fixed an issue with “Free” Council Recruitments that would cost food, these should now be corrected as Free Recruitments...
We are celebrating DomiNations 7th year, and we’re very excited to say the time has finally arrived to introduce our 16th Age, The Drone Age. You’ve waged battle alongside us for seven years through the ages, and for players who have progressed through the Information Age, a new set of upgrades await! The Drone Age will make its way to your devices in our next DomiNations 11.0 Release. This update includes new art upgrades to the units, buildings, and mercenaries, but that’s not all that is coming your way for Drone Age. We also have a new building, The Drone Factory, which will be released later this summer!
We’ll start by covering the upgrades available on day one. Once you reach XP level 333 you can upgrade your Town Center to Drone Age, unlocking all of the upgrades listed below. We know many of you are excited to start your planning phase, so here's the upgrade breakdown:
Are you ready to enter the Drone Age? The newest Age is coming to DomiNations in update v11.0! Check out the trailer above and keep an eye out as we will have more info on what you can expect to see in Drone Age very soon.
We’re here with a quick update to let you know that the release of Drone Age is almost here! The release date for Drone Age is something we see asked a lot, and we’re excited to announce that it is on the way and expected to arrive in DomiNations early this Summer. While we do not have a hard release date just yet, we can confirm that we are working towards release in Late June/July. Keep in mind that we’re still in development, and there is always the chance that the dates may shift, but we will keep you updated if anything changes.
In addition to that, we can also confirm that the required level to advance into the Drone Age will be Level 333. We’ll have more information to share soon about what you can expect to see in the Drone Age as we get closer to release!
Get ready for battle this update; we have a significant balance pass coming to all of our Barracks Troops and updates to our World War Matchmaking. We have a lot to go over, so let's get straight to it.
All Barracks Troops are receiving changes to increase their effectiveness and help bring them on par with Factory Troops.
Upon reaching Industrial Age, the following changes happen
Attack Radius: Increased slightly
Favorite Target: changed from “Any” -> “Buildings.”
Hitpoints: Increased moderately
Movement Speed: Increased slightly
Fire Rate: Increased slightly
The old version of this unit dealt less damage to Infantry. We are removing this negative modifier (allowing the soldier to do full damage to Infantry) and giving this unit double damage against Walls and Buildings.
