    Bombers Update Notes

    Update Notes New Bombers! Bristol Beaufort, Avro Lancaster, Stuka Junkers Ju 87, Mitsubishi Ki-67 and Douglas SBD Dauntless New feature: Command queue! Queue up orders for your troops Lowered the factory level for these units: Tiger Tank, Tank Destroyer, Commandos Shields remain active when attacking a surrendered player’s buildings Troops won’t consume food when they are inside bases Fixed a bug that caused HP problems when changing officers Fixed the bug that caused Troops to disappear when zooming in and out Additional Details: The Gold tech for both the B-25 and B-29 Strategic Bombers will be reset and the gold refunded back to your account. You will be free to reinvest the gold as you see fit. Command Queue details: You will now be able to queue up different commands for your troops. You can queue up any orders you can normally give your unit and your unit will execute them in the order you designated. Infantry improvement: You may order an Infantry unit to capture a building that hasn't been destroyed. The Infantry Unit will attack the building until it is destroyed and will then proceed to capture it. Troops will not consume food when inside buildings (they'll eat in the mess hall instead of eating their rations) This update is now live. We hope you enjoy it and we'll see you on the Battlefield!

    I quit because of lag

    To reiterate, we absolutely are doing all we can to find the bugs that are causing server lag and instability. We are a small team and we pride ourselves in building a game that is fun and satisfying; bugs, glitches and lag can ruin that fun and we sincerely apologize for that. I understand that it is tempting to think that because these issues have persisted, we don't care or we are too "greedy" or <insert bad faith reason here>. A truth that I believe everyone can agree on is that these issues hurt the game, which logically leads to lower revenue. It is in our absolute, 100% benefit as a company to fix these issues; both because we take pride in having a fun game and because it makes practical, fiscal sense. There is no world in which we would ever say "let's not fix these bugs, lets do something else instead". And while adding new content is not 100% risk free, the new content we are adding is not the main culprit but rather other, more complex interactions between the different components in our software. As to the idea that we purposely rig the game for certain leagues, going so far as to weaponize lag(?)... I work out of our Office in San Francisco with a small team here, and collaborate with the developers out of Beijing. I am in several practical ways the "boss" (Product lead, Project Manager, etc. call it what you will). The idea that I or anyone on our team would collude with players to betray the spirit of a competitive game is simply disgusting. I can't speak to other developers' experience, but in the 10 years I've been in the games industry I have never seen anything of this sort where I've worked, and I would not tolerate it. As gamers and consumers ourselves, we take our responsibility for ethical behavior very seriously. I know the support agent in that screenshot, and nothing that is said there screams "we will collaborate with you to cheat". This sounds more like someone wanting to face off fairly against Godz in a tournament? and support saying "you can figure it out". Saying we will provide technical support is not a smoking gun, its more like trying to be polite if anything. I get that for some, we are "the man" and everything we say or do is suspect. Authority figures and all that, I get it. But I hope most players who play and enjoy the game can see the reason in my explanations above and reach a less suspicious, less worst-case scenario point of view. To KingCB: we hate to see you go, we hope you'll check back as we work on and (hopefully soon) fix the ongoing issues. Thank you for reading.

    New Bombers Coming in next update!

    Added one more! We understand the frustration with the issues as we feel the same way. We are dedicating all resources we have to fixing these problems, creating new Bomber units does not come at the expense of that. These new units don't contribute more risk to the server issues, no more than having any units in the game does. If the issue were simply units, our engineers would have fixed the lag by now; unfortunately, it is more complicated than that and they are still writing code to find and fix the bugs. Our continued apologies to all players for any bad experiences.

    I can confirm that none of the new bombers have any Anti-Air capabilities.

    Maintenance & Update on December 21st

    We are doing a hotfix and changing the calculation back to 60 seconds until we can revisit this issue and make sure it works as intended.
  9. Please Note: Technology for the B-25 and B-29 Bombers were reset and any Gold invested was added back to your account. 'Tech Points' are now irrelevant, you can upgrade Technology as many times as you wish now. This was done by accident in advance of next month's update; you are free to upgrade your bombers again in the interim, we plan to reset these two bombers again once the update is released. Apologies for the confusion. Commanders! Central command has approved production on several new lines of bombers. Each Bomber will have its own specialty: 2 Bombers specialized vs Naval Units (regular and League City) 2 Bombers specialized vs Units (regular and League City) 1 Bomber Specialized vs Buildings (regular) The B-29 Strat Bomber will be further specialized vs Buildings, the B-25 will not have any specialty and be somewhere in the middle. We will reveal each bomber in the days to come! For a sneak peek, can you guess which bomber this is and what its specialty will be? Update 1/04: Check out our latest video: Update 1/08: Check out our latest videos! Update 1/10: 1/12 Update, the Dauntless has arrived:

    New Update: Commandos

    Please make sure you have the latest, updated version of the game. An update went out recently to address login issues. If that does not solve your problem, please write us a ticket to Support. You can use the web version here: https://joycrafter.helpshift.com/a/world-warfare/

    Cannoneer Superior Tactician

    You are correct, it should read "Airman or Tanker Classes". The skill works correctly, it is merely a typo (which we plan to fix).

    New Update: Commandos

    quick update: our engineers have identified the source of the bug that prevented some players from login in using Google Play. Please update your Android device again by downloading the latest update. Thank you for your patience.

    Unable to download latest app version

    Regarding support for older Apple (iOS) devices, as the game has grown we have had to abandon support for devices that only support a 32bit Operating system, and that don't support the newer 64bit systems. Here is a breakdown of devices that do support 64bit: https://www.macrumors.com/2017/06/06/ios-11-compatible-iphone-ipad-ipod-models/ (While you don't have to run on iOS 11 to play the game your device does need to support it) We are deeply sorry that we did not warm our community about this change in advance. We had discussions internally that this change was coming but we had a breakdown in communication and did not catch that it was this update that would mark this change. While this change was inevitable we apologize that it rolled out the way it did, we were planning on notifying you ahead of time and we failed to do so. Android devices work on a very different system and don't have the same kind of requirements that Apple devices do and so are not affected in the same way.

Our apologies for the inconvenience, this issue is our #1 priority right now.
