With today’s release we introduce an adjustment to the aggressive fire mode of units. When switching to the aggressive fire mode units will open fire on any unit in range. This includes units of neutral countries and is not limited to units from countries you are currently at war with. Obviously your own units and those of your allies will be spared. There are several strategic benefits to this change. You can now setup naval blockades or prepare for intruders preemptively for example. But be careful, once you open fire on a unit of a neutral country, it will trigger war with this nation.
As part of the adjustment we limited the aggressive fire mode to range units only. To counter this limitation all units will now block other units automatically when positioned somewhere.
- Aggressive fire mode: Limited to range units. Units will bombard enemy and neutral units.
- Fire at will (standard): Blocks and attacks close by neutral or enemy units, unless they have right of way.
- Return fire /hold fire: Units pass each other without combat.
The aggressive fire mode can be activated in the fire control, which is available to members of the high command. Membership to the high command can be purchased in the shop.
We hope you can make good use of the aggressive fire mode and wish you best of luck on the battlefield!
