Ballistic Armor, AP Ammunition, and Laser Sights are now available for the Elite Rifleman. Check Event Prizes → Unit Equipment for details.
Technical updates taking effect this week:
When relocating your base within the same map, you are now guaranteed to move at least 3 hexes away from your current location. Previously, there was a chance you could get unlucky and be “moved” only a single hex.
The 30-minute temporary Rifleman Damage, Range, and Speed boost items now affect Elite Riflemen as well.
Note: permanent AP Ammunition, Laser Sights, and Ballistic Armor items are different for regular Riflemen and Elite Rifleman. This follows the same pattern as other Elite unit equipment.
A code problem that sometimes caused players to see a “white screen” error on login has been fixed.
A technical problem that sometimes caused Internet Explorer users to disconnect after the end of a battle has been fixed.
In an update rolled out this week, we fixed bugs and added features to reduce the chance that players get disconnected from our servers during gameplay. This means you are now much less likely to get the dreaded “boot” from the game.
While we can’t guarantee 100% reliability under all conditions, data since the update shows the chance of disconnection is now about one-third of what it used to be.
Help us improve by reporting network problems
If you are still getting “booted” from the game often, please let us know so that we can investigate the problem.
To make the most helpful report, please use the Contact Support link in-game and include the following details:
The “Code:” number shown in the disconnection message
What you were doing in the game when you got booted (in battle? looking at the regional map? just sitting at home base?)
Your network connection type: Wi-fi, 3G/4G, or Wired
Upgrade your army with a new, versatile foot soldier. The Elite version features increased weapon range and strength against armor and infantry, while keeping the anti-air ability of the classic Rifleman. Elite Riflemen carry more than double the hitpoints and dish out 20x more damage than their original Rifleman brothers (see below for full stats).
