Changelog 1.286


FOE Team
Co-Community Manager

Hello Queens and Kings,

We will release version 1.286 on 3rd July 2024/B]. There will be a short downtime during the update. We apologize for any inconvenience caused during this time.

In this update, we are implementing technical improvements, bug fixes, and adding content for future events. You can find highlights of these changes below. Please note that FOE-XXXX indicator before the bug description is the number we use for tracking internally.

Community Suggestions

In this update we include some of the ideas you recently voted for. Please keep in mind that some of the ideas are still in discussion and refinement, so they might get changed, postponed, or shelved depending on the information found during development.

  • FOE-81861: Searching for items in the Inventory will now also search the content of Selection Kits. They are now displayed as search results too, when the searched item is part of the given kit. (Browser and Mobile)
  • FOE-81873: Incidents are now easier to find. We improved the glow, similar to how it is on the app. (Brower)
  • FOE-81893: In the Reconstruction Mode, the type of buildings, as well as the road requirement is now displayed for every building! (currently Browser only)
  • FOE-82791: It is now possible to use multiple Selection Kits in a row to upgrade buildings! (Browser)
Other Improvements

  • FOE-82809: Roads in your Quantum Settlement no longer require Quantum Supplies! This change has been implemented for the season starting on the 27th of June already.

  • Ranking
    • FOE-81982: The Ranking button in Guild profile still showed the placement on the legacy ranking. It will now display your rank in the Guild Battleground Championship!
  • Buildings
    • FOE-82617: The Bullion Garrison provided too few Gemstones and Trade Coins when exchanging it. It now provides more than its previous levels.
    • FOE-82824: It was possible to store the Ascended Golden Dragon Gong and Ascended Zheng’s Golden Bell, resetting its timer. This is no longer possible.
  • Start Page
    • FOE-82754: Images in news posts could become unavailable for a short amount of time. They are now always there.
  • Events
    • FOE-82769: Some players did not have access to events, even when unlocked. They are now able to play them.
  • Login issues
    • FOE-82735: Having unconnected limited buildings decaying could prevent you from logging in. They will now correctly decay.
    • FOE-82793: It was possible to have a running battle from Exploration Sites while advancing to a new age. This could prevent you from entering the game. We fixed this.
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!
  • FOE-82537: In rare cases the game would still ask you to watch Video Ads, even when you bought the No Ads subscription. This is now fixed.
  • FOE-82889: The image for rewards from fragments was missing. It is now added back. (fixed with an 1.285 update)
That's all for this update folks!

In case you are interested, we still have some things to share! Firstly, we continue working on Community Suggestions. Not only that, but we're also preparing changes to the Care for Tomorrow Event based on player feedback, especially in regards to the World Challenge!

You can test some of those additions and follow the development if you join our Beta Server!
