    Link to announcement: Changelog 1.126
    • When returning to your city from a different part of the game, the zoom level is now set to the medium distance to keep the city in the focus of the game.
    Why can't it just stay to where I set it? I like to keep it zoomed out, so I guess it's back to browser zoom.
    • The victory expansion of the upcoming age is now available in the game!
    Guessing that will cost around 600,000 medals for that Expansion but oh yeah, new age is a comin'...


    660,000 actually

    • In our effort to improve the performance of the HTML5 version of the game...
    Still wreaking havoc on my system just playing regular without GvG, 10 minutes and I'm over 2Gb of memory and it crashes.
    • Hovering over enemy units on the field or in the action bar didn't always display their attack range. This has now been fixed.
    Nice, ty.

    >>> Please don't change the zoom setting the user has selected. This is the worst change I've seen in a while.

    I agree... I rarely had to use the zoom button, now I'm having to click it every few minutes. Please ditch this change.

    In case we're keeping track, count me as one who would like the zoom level to stay put. Having to change it every few minutes is pretty annoying.

    I'm struggling to understand the reasoning here. We were given the option to zoom out further recently and now on the heels of that it's defaulted to the way it was before, this makes no sense. Why have a zoom out function if everytime I do something in game it just goes right back? Very aggravating.

    Here's what it looks like as a default on my city at 100% Browser Zoom on full window, it just goes to the corner like it wants to focus on my TH except I've moved my TH so it seems the focus is AM. I guess maybe because probably most players keep their TH there? I usually do but I just can't grasp why if we are playing and we zoom out why it can't at least stay that way for the session. I can deal with having to zoom out when I open the game but not after every action in the game.

    RETURN MY ZOOM LEVEL TO THE LEVEL I SET IT TO!!!!!! I do not need you telling me what the "best" zoom level is for me. This is a terrible "fix". Please correct this NOW!!!

    Sometimes I wonder if the developers actually ever play the game.

    Thanks for finally getting enemy attack ranges to display correctly once again! Manual battling was hellish the entire time that they were broken.

    This is an exceedingly annoying switch, and I do not understand why the devs would think this was a good idea

    I agree with the above comments - resetting the zoom to medium every time I return to my city is really annoying. The extra outer zoom was a great addition, now it's become pretty much obsolete unless you're prepared to click it back in every time you return to your city. Please get rid of this feature in the next update.

    This zoom level change is a HORRIBLE idea. I don't know who tricked you into this, but it's safe to say they are not your friends. If it's not broken, you don't fix it. Why mess with my settings? Who are you to tell me what's best for me? It is A PERSONAL PREFERENCE. You don't have a say in this. You give me options, I make my decision. You don't get to adjust my zoom level. Take this back asap please.

    It was a "fix" that didn't need to be made and now makes it an extra "useless" mouse wheel scroll. It's just stupid. I use the furthest zoom to see the entire extent of my town. When I keep coming back from other screens, it's very abrupt to be shown a zoomed in town. Is it the end of the world? No. But it was wholly unnecessary to force a zoom level on the player. You may not find it a nuisance, but those of us who did/do complained and it didn't fall to blind eyes this time as a fix to the "fix" is on the way. There's no reason to get upset and comment about a complaint that doesn't bother you unless you feel like it hurts the game. How does having the zoom setting we choose stay the way we choose hurt the game?

    And did Inno not ask for feedback? Well, they got exactly what they asked for, right?

    Glad to have the attack ranges back on units - i was really getting sick of the process of 'hover over enemy unit to find its range, count out manually its attack range from the edge of its movement range'

    I really wish they would return the zoom feature to the old way, where we could set it at the size we want to play at and it would stay at that size. Having to change it back constantly is a real pain!!!
