DomiNations v9.1 Update - The Art of War

Greeting Leaders!
Our next update, 9.1, is almost here, and it introduces Sun Tzu to DomiNations along with a new Recruit A Friend feature, changes to Bastions and the GCI Radar, and more!


Sun Tzu
Sun Tzu is the newest Leader to arrive in DomiNations. We’re excited for the arrival of Sun Tzu because not only is he our latest University Leader, but he can also be deployed in battle as a General as soon as you unlock Fort (level 10). Master the Art of War by adding him to your ranks today. Let’s dive into what makes Sun Tzu so unique.

University Leader - Sun Tzu
Our first look begins at the University, where you can research bonuses to increase troop capacity, upgrade your MRL damage, and much more.
  • Sun Tzu is available to research at university level 7.
  • Research skill points to unlock Sun Tzu’s General Ability - The Art of War. This ability can be used in battle to provide Sun Tzu powerful bonuses, including an attack speed buff to him and his allies around him, as well as the ability to summon Tank reinforcements.
  • Capstone: The Army on the March. Unlock this capstone to further increase the attack speed bonus and the amount of tanks that can be spawned by Sun Tzu’s The Art of War ability . Another significant benefit of this capstone is that it allows for The Art of War ability to be activated more than once per battle.

General Sun Tzu
Players can unlock Sun Tzu as a playable General once the Fort reaches level 10. Once placed in battle, he rides around the battlefield in a Heavy Tank, dealing splash damage to enemy troops with his attacks.
  • Sun Tzu has high health and damage stats but a slower base attack speed than other Generals.
  • Sun Tzu receives a special General Ability, The Art of War, that can be activated in battle after unlocking the ability through the Sun Tzu University Leader tech tree. This ability has several unique properties:
  • Increases the attack speed of Sun Tzu and all allied troops around him for a short time.
  • Sun Tzu will spawn Type 99 Tanks to aid him in battle.
  • The Art of War ability can only be activated once per battle unless the player has unlocked the capstone from the Sun Tzu University leader tech tree.
New Law Branch: Military Infrastructure
Military Infrastructure is a new branch in the Alliance Laws feature that introduces new Laws focusing on upgrading troops.
  • Military Funding: Barracks - Reduced Barrack troop upgrade costs
  • Military Funding: Tactics - Reduced War Tactic upgrade costs
  • Military Funding: Generals - Reduced General upgrade costs
  • Military Funding: Coalitions - Reduced Coalition upgrade costs
  • Military Funding: Airstrip - Reduced Airstrip troop upgrade costs
  • Military Funding: Factory - Reduced factory troop Upgrade costs
  • Parliamentary Guards - Turns Parliament into a Troop Spawning building on defense.

Laws Leaderboard
A new button has been added to the Branch and Law windows inside of Parliament, allowing you to view the previous day’s daily leaderboard.


Recruit a Friend
Invite friends to play DomiNations and earn rewards as they progress through the Ages!


Auto Promote Alliance Leader
Also coming in 9.1 is our Auto-Promote system for Alliances who have found themselves with an inactive leader. This system will demote leaders that have been inactive for longer than 31 days and promote a Co-Leader, or the most active member (if no Co-Leader is present) to Alliance Leader.


Bastion changes
We’ve reduced the Bastion Rubble slow effect by 5% at level 4, 12% at level 5, and 19% at level 6.


GCI Radar
  • The fighter aircraft spawned by the GCI Radar no longer scales with external Defender buffs.
  • Damage reduced by 45%
  • Splash attack radius reduced from 5 to 3.

Bug Fixes
  • Fixed Burj Al Arab upgrade time reduction effect not taking effect on traps and certain houses.
  • Fixed a bug that was preventing some players from sorting by Individual Laws in the Alliance Laws Search Tab.
  • Fixed an issue that was preventing the Information Age Emissary to be unclaimable at times.
  • Fixed an issue with Space Needle’s shadow overlapping other buildings.
  • Additional minor bug fixes, text updates, and UI fixes.

Does this leaderboard include all players who donated or just the top 10 like before? TheWise

For alliance leaders it's way more important to see the list of all donators not just the top 10.

-

Also is the disappearing donations bug fixed? This one is very very frustrating for alliances...

-

I especially like the "Auto Promote Alliance Leader" feature. Wanted that years ago.. Better late.

Looks like this update is generally a good buff for offense, hopefully this helps balance Info Age defense.

Sun Tzu sounds fun. Maybe now we can get a 3rd armory slot (for crowns) for the many generals :)

So you don't want defence bases to ever stand up in war is that right BHG_Muet take the bastions to the same slow down as barb wire then add a gen that shoots over walls , spawns HT and has a feature like the gladiator then boost recons and ht more .....so you like the game unbalanced I guess to offence though defenders are your biggest spenders but now we can count on average attackers taking out mega bases in the 2 min 30 second range again ....19 percnrt was wayyyy too much off level 6 5 percnrt maybe terrible update coming for all defenders

I am happy with new update, Bastions and GCI were way too strong.

And to those who say offence is to strong now, don't forget about latest def buffs from info library, and that Sun Tzu works not only in offense.
I think the off buffs were long needed and help to balance the game once again.

This update sounds good.

GCI are too OP - needed some rebalance👍

Bastions are a menace - Troops are practically standing still when going over the rubble 👍

Finally some common sence.

But did you have to make Parliament spawn troops? If fully upgrades it has a cannon that shoots at enemy and now it works like a Garrison also. 👎👎

Sun Tzu sounds promising 👍

Auto Promotion is one of the most useful things you ever did. Well done. 👍👍👍


P.S.
Now if you could fix Alliance Perk 3 that would be swell. We've been waiting for almost 2 years now or so.

This game is called Dominations - what's wrong with the occasional offensive buff?
They're constantly buffing defenses - offense could use a boost once in a while.

Hi everyone,
Quick update, the team is currently looking into the bug reports we are getting, which include the retraining issues. I don't have an update now, but I will provide one as soon as we have new information.

I agree that offense deserved some help but BHG has gone overboard. The game is now not balanced. 5 star attacks on big bases are fairly easy now. The biggest problem is the 4-5 Eisenhowers per attack. The range of 6 needs to be nerfed.

if BHG was to take the Eisenhowers out of the equation the balance would be much better. But of course, they will never remove them or stop selling them because so many use and buy them. Revenues wins over balance.

Just had a war my base that has not taken 5 stars in information age has now given 5 stars in 2 mins 30 seconds to free cards attack , BHG_Muet this is not ok there is no balance at all now it's 100 percent an offence game.defence is worthless , the new gen is worthless he is less than the original 3 gens , don't know what you were thinking with this update but you made 5 stars the norm not the exception time to undo it before you make us suffer it for months

In each update, you have new surprises for us, which increases the fun of the game. I sincerely thank you on behalf of the players of the alliance. Of course, there may be small problems, which I am sure will be resolved very soon. But we are always look at the full half of glass. All these interesting ideas are commendable. The other point is that some things may not be balanced at first, like the power of the new general, but as always you will get better over time. Many expect the game to go only in the direction they like. And to go in a way that even they themselves are unaware of the destructive consequences of their ideas. Some of these people are the ones who have the level 15 alliance. But in criticizing the game, they always refer to the problem of perk 3, which is very ridiculous. It is as if they pass through this perk, 4 times a day. Anyway, you are unique. I look at this game positive from last year that you remove big bugs in game. Good luck.

I used this nickname when the game was full of bug.
so,each time i write a thanks for developer team,some players said;oh,are you geeting paid from BHG?!!
NO.As we have been criticized for game weaknesses and bugs in past and in any time, we should be thankful for BHG good efforts and good deeds. This is called fair criticism.

For the last few year people were complaining the "rebalance" shifted the focus too much onto defence (I was one of them) and now you're complaining that it's too easy to attack - in a game called Dominations? I don't think it's too easy but this is a game all about attacking other bases - it should be a fun attacking game! Nexon have finally eased the handbrake on this game and it's about time.
Granted 5 Eisenhowers with range 6 is ridiculous but be patient - like anything good for attacking he'll be nerfed at some point.
