Hey Everyone,

We are happy to present a major update that greately improves KWP experienced on the world map. We have seen a lot of comments on how slow the gameplay can be at times, and about various performance and unit control issues on the world map. With today`s update we set out to fix all these issues once and for all.

To start things of we changed the flow of time on the world map - months go by a lot faster now, armies move faster, and overall there`s a lot more urgency, and occasional need to slow the game speed down.

We also worked on the technical aspects of world map time change. The world map speed can be greatly increased or slowed down now, as before values mostly effected performance, but not actual gameplay. Now on 2x or 0.25x the game will play and feel very differently. We also looked into fixing majority of performance issues when increasing the gameplay speed. In addition we also fixed all the UI slowdowns when decreasing the game speed.

We also reworked the flow of the plague events - with the whole story arc, events, spread and receding of the plague taking longer and not overwhelming players as much.

Well continue with another update in early April. Thanks for continuous support - and we cant wait, to get the last of the gameplay issues and polish out of the way so that we can focus on the Tutorial campaign and undead.
