Default Bombs Away!

Sorry for the radio silence for the last few days. We've been focused on running through tests for the new Barrage feature.

Anyway we are happy to announce that the final engine patch actually went live on Saturday and we've been closely monitoring it for the last few days. I'll have a change log available in the next few days, but two of the major changes are now live. The first of which several of you have probably noticed already. Hold and Entrench will now display your newly built field fortifications (as long as your men were not interrupted in their work). These are displayed as darker versions of the marker you see when you give the order to your troops. These will remain in the hex for the entirety of the game and any unit within the hex that is faced in the direction of the fortification will receive the +20% defensive bonus.

Barrage is now available to Artillery only and as many of you know it is a stationary order (meaning units can not move and Barrage). So its intended use is to march your Artillery into position then aim the guns and fire on the next turn. It is now highly recommended to use Barrage for Artillery attack and defense as Attack/Defend orders for artillery now mean you are telling your Artillery men to get out their pistols and join a charge. Barrage works across all hex side elements except for impassible. Barrage will not initiate a combat, meaning that you need to have a unit in a surrounding hex that will function as a "spotter" to engage enemy units and trigger a combat. Counter Barrage is automated and means that your supporting Artillery engage in combat if units within its surrounding Zone of Barrage (we sometimes refer to this as ZoB) are drawn into a combat initiated by a different unit. Im sure you guys will have questions so feel free to let me know.
