  • Fixed an issue where players were not prompted with a “Don’t Forget to Destroy the Castle” reminder when attacking Khan
  • [Atlas] Added a team chat message and system mail when someone disables a Shield.
  • [Atlas] Fixed an issue where a team could not conquer a castle in spite of the Shield having dissipated.

  • [Atlas] Fixed an issue where Alliance chat would sometimes become unavailable after switching teams
  • [Atlas] Fixed an issue where a player’s standing in the Troop leaderboard would sometimes be shown incorrectly.


The rider skill system faces players with important choices to make regarding how to best make their rider work for them. While we believe that the element of choice is important, we feel that the current system is too punishing for players. Players will now be able to reset their rider’s skills in exchange for a set amount of Rubies/Diamonds.


  • Main game riders will cost 10,000 Rubies to reset
  • Atlas riders will cost 10,000 Diamonds to reset
  • Cost does not increase with each reset
  • There is no limit to the number of times a rider can be reset
  • Resetting a rider’s skills does not reset the rider’s level, and players will receive the skill points back.
