Wargroove – Ver. ???

  • Release date: ???
  • Patch notes:

No patch notes available yet.

  • List of changes:
  • Fix bug that caused online multiplayer maps against AI to sometimes go into a broken state.
  • Fix bug that caused spectating online on Fog of War maps to not work correctly.
  • Fix bug that caused issues around resigning on matches.
  • Fix the display of some Japanese and Chinese characters.
  • Checkpoint system
    While playing in campaign mode you’ll be able to set a checkpoint in a mission, and then if you’re defeated you can retry from this checkpoint. You can set a checkpoint whenever you want, but you can only have one active at a time (previous gets overwritten)

  • Difficulty system overhaul
    Following player feedback we’re now adding 5x difficulty presets – Story, Easy, Medium, Hard (Default) & Custom.
    Hard is the standard rules of the game and the only mode where you can obtain S-ranks.
    Medium is a bit easier and allows up to 3 stars, Easy limits you to 2 stars & Story to 1 star (and is very easy indeed!)

  • Multiplayer
    You can now add CPU players to online games. There’s now also a message clarifying that you must join a match if you don’t have any in progress.
    A number of fixes have been made to Quick Play timers, and you can now no longer suspend Quick Play matches and play other games in the meanwhile, since they’re supposed to be real-time.
    Seven maps designed specifically for co-op will also be added.

  • General Quality of Life
    The effectiveness chart on unit info and recruit screens has been reworked to be far more readable and informative!
    Skipping battles, captures and cutscenes is now much faster, and S Rank requirements will now be displayed on the overview screen for a mission.
    “Exit” has been renamed to “Suspend” to avoid confusion and you can now see teams on the Overview screen.
    Fix has been made to international text input on Switch, and the Korean font has also been added.
    Display the Controller Select Applet on Switch less often (so only shows up when using local multiplayer).

  • New options:
    We’re adding a “Movement Speed” option that allows you to set all units to move faster, as well as a “Confirm End Turn” option to avoid accidental end of turns.
    A “Damage Range” option is also being added to display minimum and maximum damage on previews, instead of average damage.

  • Fog of War:
    Allies now share vision, and eliminated players can still see their team vision – thus becoming spectators.
    Now spectators can only view the current team’s vision, rather than the whole whole map.
    Enemy income and funds will now be hidden! Spawn effects and building colours will also not be shown inside fog of war. Likewise, battle and capture animations won’t be shown unless at least one of the units is visible to the current player.
    Fix made to “sonar” bug that allowed you to obtain extra information within fog of war.

  • Plus further fixes and tweaks
