Voor De Kroon January 30 Update: Siege Battles and Unit Level System

Voor De Kroon 30 January Update
Voor De Kroon 30 January Update Steam

Voor De Kroon received an update that brought several new changes to siege battles and the unit level system, on top of the usual bug fixes and optimizations.

Siege Battles

The latest update features new changes regarding siege battles. Now, players can create siege engines and give them formations to attack enemy castles. A siege can only be won by annihilating the enemy formations, but it is possible to give defenders a morale penalty by damaging the castle.

Unit Level System

In this update, units earn experience for fighting battles and getting kills. When new units are recruited, their formation will be sloppy but at level five, they will become better at fighting and holding their formation. Also, players can now access unit details to check their progress level, and can even transfer units from the unit detail screen if they want.
