Hey all, there seems to be some questions around Design Intent - so we added this bit to the announcement post, but I’ll also post it here for ease:
We wanted to give players a way to build cool new towers without having to justify removing an existing tower to make room for it.
The new Archmage Towers allow players to get an awesome new upgrade to the most commonly used defense towers in the game. The Archmage towers are sturdier versions of the Red and Blue mage towers, with a more threatening supershot ability.
Archmage supershots have added damage in addition to all of the effects of the Red and Blue mage supershots, this should turn some slim losses to wins when defending your base against enemy Dragon Lords.
In order to make the transition over to the newer towers more convenient, for the first time ever existing research applies to these electrum towers. All upgrades to buildings or Red and Blue mage towers will be applied to their respective Archmage counterparts.
In the future, we plan to release runes to power up the Archmages even further and make the experience of flying against these towers even more unique.
