To provide you with new challenging maps and to keep things interesting for map makers, we'll be making single enhancements to the map XML format on a regular basis.

To begin with, we've expanded the objective to include continents. This will lead to maps with more flexible winning objectives like "hold 60% of the world". For more information about map development, please visit the Map Foundry.


While we could certainly do with some more xml features for new and interesting gameplay, many players would probably appreciate some fixes to previous upgrades:

Frestyle Fix Fix
Ok, so Herpes is no longer King etc. However, players can use the missed-turn-double-turn feature now - if you are going second (in ! v 1 for example), you can miss your turn, end up going first, take your turn and deploy deferred armies !! Whilst very fast and cunning players can no longer take advantage, the door has been opened for blatant cheats.

New Medals, Old Medals Hidden in Some Old Drawer, Gathering Dust
Please can we have a bigger jacket so we can actually wear our medals, If not, how about choosing which medals we wear (i.e. order of preference)? We currently have 12 shown including some of the more frivolous medals, with some of the more meaningful medals hidden (e.g. tournament medals).

:D

Nice update Lack, thank you.

Great suggestions DJ, the medal one is brilliant. The ratings medal blows chunks :cry:

FYI - the proxy blocking has caused login problems for some people who do not use proxies. It has been disabled until we can fix it...

Scoreboard Improvements

The new scoreboard has these features:

Ties are now given the same position #. In other words, if you and someone else are tied for 5th place, you both get a 5 and the next player gets a 7. Tied players are listed alphabetically.

To add these features without impacting server performance, the scoreboard will no longer be "live" and will be updated every hour like the Conqueror position.

Hopefully these changes will help you better understand how you place against the competition. It may even help you find fellow countrymen to play with!


Proxy Blocking

After studying web proxy use for several months we've discovered that much less than 1% of our membership visits Conquer Club through web proxies and a large portion of this proxy use is by members with multiple accounts. We decided to block access to Conquer Club through web proxies to help our multi hunters enforce the rules and keep out the bad guys.

Unfortunately some members who use proxies legitimately to get past firewalls at school or work will be affected. We regret this side effect and hope those affected end up with better grades and promotions to make up for this ;)

To begin with, we've expanded the objective to include continents. This will lead to maps with more flexible winning objectives like "hold 60% of the world". For more information about map development, please visit the Map Foundry.

this is by far the best update since the new medals were established last year.

excellent update Lack, now two things: can you make a post in the unofficial hall of fame user group forum so CC can perhaps finally add this later this year, and two, could you possibly consider adding the amount of times a player has won tournaments to the scoreboard as well? Thx for you time.

Good idea, Blitz!

We should definitely ensure that only official tournaments are recognised of course...and these tournaments should include those that have more than 4 rounds and do not contain one team ranked thousands of points more than everybody else especially if one of that team is vetting the participants!

A very good update lack. (Especially as, at the moment, I am the top ranked UK player ;) )

A special update in regards to tournaments is currently in the works---and progressing quite well and speedily! I think more about this will come out soon.

I understand it will help to stop multis but the only reason I use a proxy sometimes is that

I live in Thailand 8-) [-o<

The internet is so slow here sometimes I time out on every click, but when I go through the proxy boom no problem, so if I can't use the proxy there will be whole days I can't play, leading to missed turns, frustration and I suppose resignation.

I mean I love CC but
I won't move BRRRRR! back to Minnesota

Just to keep playing.
