Greetings Leaders,

We have some updates regarding issues around some of the Committee Bonuses.

Explosive Sniper AoE

First, Churchill’s Explosive Sniper Tower, we confirmed that this bonus is indeed working as far as implementing AoE damage in all encounters. We have discovered that there is a visual bug that can lead to a situation where the explosion animation doesn’t appear.

For awareness, the AoE has a very tight radius, units will have to be in very close proximity to one another to receive the AoE damage. Additionally, the explosion animation can be missed in the chaos of combat.

With the actual explosion effect, however, it doesn’t 100% appear every time that the AoE damage is applied, this aspect alone is not working as intended, and we’re investigating a fix. Unfortunately, watching via replays and friendly challenges, you can’t confirm that it works, but we did notice that the enemy units impacted by this AoE will die faster, which is to be expected, and sometimes show a lower health bar when standing next to a unit hit by the sniper tower. The visual can appear when you are attacking, but as mentioned it isn’t as consistent as we intended.

Musashi Signal Flare

We have also confirmed that the Musashi Committee Bonus (Signal Flare) is working as intended but, unfortunately, doesn’t appear in Replays. We’re also looking into updating this to make sure it reflects correctly when viewing these replays. If there are situations where the additional wave of troops or signal flare doesn’t work correctly outside of the known issue here please let us know so we can investigate further.

What’s Next

We are still investigating the rest of the Committee Bonuses to ensure our hypothesis is correct, but we believe that all of these bonuses just don’t appear when viewing a replay or within a friendly challenge. In our repeated tests, we can confirm that these do activate appropriately, but in the case of the aforementioned Bonuses, there are visual aspects that are missing. While we continue to research that this is the case, if you come across any other specific instances where something doesn’t appear quite as it seems, or if you have any further questions, feel free to reach out to our CS team or in our Report a Bug forum topic here.

Our team has concluded that the video doesn't show every possible factor that would get the result you've come to. But in our tests both bare minimum (single wonder) and with the parameters you have visible (Acropolis, Alliance, Guan yi and Red Cloud) the faster spawn rate from Boudica is working as intended.

Yes, still the same thing that I mentioned for the 11.5 release, Acropolis 22% and Committee Bonus 20% do stack. But you cannot stack multiple committee bonuses of this type (two wonder areas do not give a 40% boost, only 20%). Also, the radius is the same as the Acropolis wonder, this has not changed either.

you will not get any other response Lust. After the glory decay and what they did to Greeks reborn, Harlem has stopped answering my questions. Such childish behavior.... Being the one that suffered injustice on the one hand and stopped having some form of communication on the other. Doesnt make sense... You will be, soon, on the same boat !!

This is injury added to insult
I disagree, I think Harlems is reasonable when approached respectfully.

Unfortunately in your scenario he may be directed to not share any more information on the matter.

You have to keep in mind that this is his job and there are most likely some things he can and can’t say that comes from whomever he reports to.

I understand your frustration with the outcome but I’m really trying to just get down to the root of the discrepancy with this Committee Bonus because it is the bonus that has the most significant impact on the game in my opinion.
I asked a simple question about council, so like Oddin I feel ignored and I think the question about whether council can be spied is in the future is quite relevant. So @Harlems369th did I not approach you respectfully?

I believe i show GREAT patience and respect despite the gravity and injustice of what they did.

Yes I also want a final answer and proof that it works. I am a defender after all

At this point, I’d just appreciate acknowledgement that it is a problem and not working after I posted the math that goes with the video.

This response is completely invalid and should not be left as the last statement on the subject when it has been proven to not be accurate.

“Our team has concluded that the video doesn't show every possible factor that would get the result you've come to. But in our tests both bare minimum (single wonder) and with the parameters you have visible (Acropolis, Alliance, Guan yi and Red Cloud) the faster spawn rate from Boudica is working as intended.”

Is it possible that Harlems only works one day a week? I personally have suspicions that Big Huge games overall staff has dwindled down to just a few. Even customer service is now taking much longer to respond. I may be wrong, but I don’t think BHG is working on any other games and Dominations seems to be on auto pilot. Harlems, if I’m wrong about all of this please correct me. Also, please tell us how often you monitor these forums. Thank you

Had a question about Boudica’s Uprising Committee bonus +20% Spawn Speed Near Wonders. Is the radius near wonders the same as the acropolis bonus for spawn time reduction? Also, does this bonus stack with the existing spawn reduction of the acropolis?

Does this reduce the time further than the max allowed ie: 2secs? A lot of other posts suggest the max spawn speed is capped.
