Changelog 1.211


FOE Team
Co-Community Manager
Hello Queens and Kings,

The update to 1.211 will take place on Wednesday, August 18th. There will be a short period of downtime during the update, we apologize for any inconvenience caused during this time.

For the detailed description of the changes, please see the list below:


  • We have added Rupees as extra rewards for some of the Mughal Empire quests.
  • We have added a custom input field for spending Forge Points in the Tech Tree, similar to the existing one when donating to Great Buildings.
  • The icons for attacking and defending armies have been updated to be more consistent and intuitive now:
    • def_boost_attacker.png
      Defending bonus for attacking armies
    • att_boost_attacker.png
      Attacking bonus for attacking armies
    • def_boost_defender.png
      Defending bonus for defending armies
    • att_boost_defender.png
      Attacking bonus for defending armies
    • att_def_boost_attacker.png
      Attacking bonus (all)
    • att_def_boost_defender.png
      Defending bonus (all)
    • att_def_boost_attacker_defender.png
      Attacking and defending bonus (all)
  • The auto-scrolling has been removed from Message Center threads. With this change, the thread it will no longer auto-scroll to the bottom in case a new message arrives while you're reading an older message.
  • The Emissary Portraits from the Cultural Settlements are now usable player avatars.
  • We have introduced an "activity" indicator for your friends' list. This functionality was already available for Guilds, but now it's also displayed at the bottom in the friend list tab of your social bar.

  • We fixed an issue where donating medals to the Guild Treasury would sometimes result in error and reload the game immediately.
  • The right bar would sometimes display an icon showing that not all buildings are properly connected to streets. This would usually happen when placing a building that requires a 2x2 street, despite the building being properly attached to the street. This issue has been fixed now.
  • We fixed an issue where opening the ranking window would sometimes change your Social Bar ranking points, thus showing a negative number. This issue would only happen under specific conditions (for example, having a lot of ranking points).

Mobile Only Changes

This is the mobile section of the changelog. These are things that you won't see on the desktop version of the game and only concern the mobile interface or functionality. Keep in mind that the time the mobile update becomes available depends on the stores and can be some days after the release of the browser version. So don't be surprised if you don't see the update on your devices just yet.
  • A 'great building' filter has been added to the search query of the Great Building tab in the Global Ranking window.
  • It's now possible to search for specific player offers in the market window. This improvement has been implemented on browser recently, but now it's on mobile as well!
    • With this change, you no longer need to browse tons of messages to find a specific trade offer that has been shared in one of your chats. If you know the player name who shared the offer, you can simply type his nickname in market window, and all of their offers will be displayed at a glance.
  • To make plundering more intuitive and easier to distinguish which buildings are plunderable, we changed the plundering indicators (icons):
  • The 'Touch Feedback' has been improved in multiple parts of the game. With this change, all buttons that allow you to perform an action will be highlighted upon starting an interaction. The "X" mark button in the quest log is one example, but we're also improving the touch feedback on construction menu tabs, message center arrow buttons, chat buttons, and many more!
  • One of the residential buildings from the Mughal Empire (newest cultural settlement) was displaying the incorrect collection icon. It's now showing the rupees' icon instead of goods.
