Right now it can be viewed from the game’s Steam store page and, for your convenience, in Steam guides as well (please upvote for visibility). So if you see fellow Caribbean players in need for some answers, we’d appreciate if you could refer them to this guide. Thanks!

Hi everyone,

Not many changes this time around, so once more we’d like to ask you to post the most annoying problems you experience in the game right now.

You can do it in the comments below, on our forum or using our tech support e-mail (more preferable option, and you can send us your savegame) — support@snowbirdgames.com. We look through every message, but unfortunately we can’t always reproduce some of the issues you report. At the very least, we’ll do our best to investigate what could’ve gone wrong.

Eador — 2 years

April 17, 2015  |  Eador, Snowbird, Эадор  |  21 Comments

Hi everyone,

On April 19th Eador. Masters of the Broken World will be having its two-year anniversary.

2years

This time around we’ll be celebrating the birthday in a more modest manner, so first of all we’d really like to take this opportunity to give thanks from our team to all the fans one more time.

Huge thanks to everyone who stayed and put up with us during these two years, kept following the game and still looks forward to something more and new. Eador is the first big and thus very complicated project for us. That’s why it was so vital to have the luxury of your feedback, suggestions and, last but not least, your support for such an important first step. For all of this we’re very grateful.

We hope that we’ll be able to fuel your enthusiasm with some announcements in the near future. For now though, we can at least promise a new update for the game coming next week (UPDATE: it’s taking a bit longer, but it’s still coming soon!).

By the way, on this occasion Eador. MotBW, Eador. Genesis and Allied Forces DLC will be available with a nice 85% discount on Steam till Sunday. We think it’s a great opportunity to try a pretty good strategy game for those who’ve yet to come around to it.

Caribbean! — Update notes (April 3)

Hi everyone,

There will actually be only one ‘note’ in today’s update. However, it’s a pretty important one.

This week we’ve decided to improve the tactical map for land battles. Judging by your feedback, controlling armies in a separate screen was a bit confusing, often disorientating and, as a result, it didn’t always fulfill its mission successfully, which was to provide more interesting tactical options in battles. We couldn’t really disagree with that, so that’s why the new version of battle planning interface looks like this:

newmap

As you can see, abstract minimalism of battles between green and red dots is a thing of the past. Now when you press ‘Backspace’, you will not only see the current locations of both your and enemy troops on the map, but also get an eye bird’s view of the whole land battle location, all in one place.

You won’t have to take a guess of your troops’ approximate position changes anymore. For example, if you want to move your range troop to a higher position, just place the icon on the hill you want — the controls stayed the same as they were.

We hope you’ll like the new tactical map. And as always, any comments suggesting any improvements in this regard are welcome, so please feel free to speak your mind.

Hi everyone,

Some small fixes this week, as we’re focusing most of our time on creating a content update. At the moment it seems this task may take a while to finish, so please bear with us for now (and don’t panic!).

We’ll try our best to pay attention to smaller problems like these in the meanwhile.

1045

Update notes:

– Cannons and gunners can now be bought separately from each other on the hire screen.

– Fixed a bug that caused relationship improvement when trying to help other party in battle and then leaving without partaking in it.

– Fixed a bug with accessibility to cargo hold in some cases.

– Fixed inability to do military quests from other factions with player created faction.

– Fixed a bug when players could ask tavern keepers about companions that were not yet in the game.

– Fixed a bug with accessibility to the abandoned mine on the strategic map.
