Hope it has a good launch. Will it be next week?

I see world war replay fixes in the notes, does that mean WW replays are coming back in this update?

Good stuff. Just a couple of comments.

The 50% HP buff on bombers is not enough. They needed at least a 100% increase. SAMs will no longer be able to 1-shot them, but pretty close to it. They need to be able to withstand 2 SAMs to be useful.

Level 7 coalitions: if the NTG cost goes up (which I assume it does), it becomes ridiculous to gather enough NTGs to war with them. Something needs to be done to address this. If anything, it become MORE difficult to obtain NTGs as you progress in the game, not easier.

I hope the new UNI leader will do something to decrease workers for the dock and maybe decrease ntgs. It doesn't look like new UNI leader is in the update though

That leader is just a generic pic. I wouldn't expect a new one any time soon. When a new one is imminent, they change the picture to that leader like they did for the last 3 new ones. The current graphic was there a year ago.

As ever, sounds interesting. A couple of observations:

These patch notes feel heavily weighted to Atomic players - some more info for other ages would be nice.
More storehouse capacity for NTGs feels pretty essential for L7 coalitions.

TinSoldier All very good changes but the one that sticks out as honorable mention is
  • American flag is now hung properly from the Embassy in accordance with Public Law 94-344
properly displaying a nations flag is the right thing to do even though it did not affect gameplay. Kudos

Rubies is great addition from first assumptions. It finally means people can stock up on troop cards from Marco Polo without being pay gated through crowns, and you're given an incentive to war by earning rubies.
  • American flag is now hung properly from the Embassy in accordance with Public Law 94-344
Seems like that law only came into effect around 1976. Should it not take affect only when you enter atomic age or cold war age? lol. Though it does make me curious to if there was a difference before then. Probably not, huh.

What do you mean by:

Planes enter battles facing the correct direction?

Bomber buff! Nice.
Rubies.... At least it's meritocratic, but I swear to god don't turn this game into Samurai Siege.

When will this drop? If anyone can read the Korean forum, there might be some information there.

Sometimes when you deploy planes they appear on the map facing towards the forest, but then reverse quickly towards the town. Just a visual appearance, was not high on the list of priorities, I hope, but a nice visual enhancement nonetheless.
