Our Scouts have gotten their hands on a messenger delivering documents from Xerxes to his armies! The information we have received will be used to give you an advantage in your battles against Persian Positions!
1. New measures have been implemented in order to reduce Unit loss. From this point on, a percentage of all Units sent out to battle at Persian Positions will return unharmed in the event of lost battles.
The combat will be monitored, and if the Oracle foretells that the Persians will come out on top, new orders will be delivered to your warriors and 30% of them sent safely back to your City. You can then start regrouping and amassing a mightier force for your next attempt.
Be advised: This only applies if the fight is close. If you send an army that is too weak to a Position, your warriors won’t be saved before the Persians get to them!
2. The Position payout algorithm has also been altered. The gods reward those brave Archons who consistently show up for battle! From now on, you can expect a guaranteed reward every time you clear a Persian Position, rather than the hit-or-miss system previously in place! While this means fewer giant rewards, it assures you'll never walk away from a Persian Position victorious but empty-handed.
Get out there and fight courageously, Archons, for victory is close at hand!
