    The wait is over! Zeppelins are NOW LIVE in Supremacy 1914! Starting from 9 am UTC today, take command of these mighty airships and revolutionize your strategic approach on the battlefield.


    Remember, Zeppelins target province centers, dealing significant morale damage and wreaking havoc on buildings. With their high range and robust HP pool, they bring an element of surprise to your offensive strategies.


    Participate in the ongoing Zeppelin Operations from now until May 20, 2024, to acquire these formidable units.

    Featuring in various Operations over the coming weeks, progress can be made on all maps, including special Operations on event maps. Unlock each Zeppelin with a healthy mix of sharp skills and strategic play.


    Fear not, you can keep these aerial leviathans at bay with cost-effective balloons and infantry units. Ready your troops for a skyward onslaught, as Zeppelins deploy on day 10, offering a dynamic twist to your gameplay.


    Join the battlefield, seize control of Zeppelins, and assert dominance across the skies. Let the era of Zeppelins mark your journey to triumph in Supremacy 1914!

    Today's update institutes a market fee, applied to all transactions occurring on the stock market. This fee will constitute 10% of the transaction value, payable in ingame Money regardless of the resource being bought or sold.


    We also revisited the method through which AI market prices are established. To impact the current average price point, a significantly larger quantity of resources will now need to be traded on the market. Optimizing this aspect will effectively reduce the severe price fluctuations formerly experienced in the market and further establish a more steady and reliable trading environment.

    By making these alterations, we aim to discourage market price manipulation that could result in unfair advantages or disrupt the balance of the map. This has been a long-standing request from our veteran community and we believe this solution will enhance the overall game economy and fairness.

    In addition, we have decreased the relative prices of personal market offers, based on the current average price point on the stock market.

    This adjustment will mirror the slowed pace of the market price changes. It also means that the personal offers will adjust slower in price, as they are dependent on each other. To alleviate concern that the market becomes too expensive, we are lowering the relative prices of these personal offers slightly.

    Please note that the above-mentioned changes to the stock market only affect games created after today's update. Games that were created before the update are not affected by the changes.

    Last but not least, we've focused on enhancing gameplay by squashing several significant bugs. We rectified an inconvenience regarding the Delaying March mechanism which was previously operating on in-game time rather than real-time hours, specifically for maps with a speed factor higher than 1.

    Additionally, we've ensured that rewards will be properly displayed in the Advisor Reward pop-up, allowing players to see and claim their rewards successfully.

    For a closer look at the changes please check out the detailed list of updates and share your feedback with us here on the forums and our Discord server.


    Best of luck General,

    We are thrilled to unveil a new addition to Supremacy 1914 - Zeppelins! These mighty airships will bring a new dimension to your wartime strategies starting from April 12, 2024, at 9 am UTC.


    Zeppelins are not your typical bombers; they are designed to target province centers, inflicting significant morale damage and wreaking havoc on buildings. While they may not be effective against units or air units, their high range and robust HP pool make them a force to be reckoned with.


    1712229475_news_images_30248.jpg


    To acquire Zeppelins, participate in the upcoming Zeppelin Operations and complete tasks between April 12 to May 20, 2024. These tasks are accessible to all players and provide a chance to earn these formidable airships.


    You will be able to earn the Zeppelin in various Operations over the next few weeks. There will be general Operations for which progress can be made on all maps, as well as special Operations that are only available on certain maps or in event maps. Whether you like to play multiple matches at once, fast events, or normal maps, all players will be able to obtain the Zeppelin.

    To unlock each individual Zeppelin, which will be available for the duration of the Zeppelin event, you'll have to put in a bit of effort and prove your skills on various event maps. Additionally, Zeppelins will be available in the shop for those eager to bolster their arsenal.


    We have carefully crafted Zeppelins to offer a fresh strategic option without disrupting the early game balance. To counter these aerial behemoths, utilize cost-effective balloons that deal air damage, coupled with infantry units for a coordinated takedown.


    Prepare yourselves for the skyward onslaught as Zeppelins deploy on day 10, alongside factory units, injecting a new level of dynamism into your gameplay. Stay vigilant and adapt your tactics to leverage the strengths of these aerial giants.


    Join the upcoming Operations, engage in battles, and seize the opportunity to command Zeppelins in your quest for domination on the battlefield. Brace for the skies to be filled with the thunderous presence of Zeppelins, marking a new era in your strategic endeavors!


    Command wisely, for victory awaits those who compete vigorously to dominate the skies with Zeppelins. Onward to triumph!

    Attention Generals!


    Today we just had a small update including a fix for the annoying bug when ranged units caused greater damage when combined with stormtroopers. From now on, the ranged units will deal normal damage as with all units.



    Your Bytro team

    1706623015_news_images_29812.jpg

    Exciting news from the front lines! We've completed the migration to a new system for handling player stats in real-time. This means more reliability and up-to-date info for your strategic moves, updates to your profiles, rewards and new future opportunities for tasks in the Operations system!

    As our statistics system was taken offline for a short duration during the upgrade, some statistics may not have been recorded. This means that, although we worked hard to keep this period brief, some minor deviations may be noticed.

    We apologize for any inconvenience this might have caused.

    Get ready for a sharper, more responsive battlefield!

    As the seasons change and the year reaches its end, we want to take a moment to wish you all Happy Holidays!


    Wrapping up our achievements of this year, we are happy that 2023 has brought us lots of interesting updates. We introduced many game-changing and balancing features to Supremacy 1914, ran the first-ever super speed round with content creators, added some cool designs to our merch store, and celebrated the game’s 14th anniversary. This was a year of great challenges and new additions to the game that we all love and embrace.


    We would like to thank you for your passion, dedication, and spirited competition that have helped make this year one full of fun and camaraderie. Whether it be your strategic genius in mapping out battle plans, your excellent diplomacy in forming alliances, or your resilience in the face of defeat, you truly continue to make this game an epic battlefield. It's you, the players, who make Supremacy 1914 the engaging and exciting realm it is.


    As a present, we will reward you with your favorite speed map (4x) that you can play during the holiday period. Make sure to keep an eye out for new operations. Santa might have a special gift for you this year!


    Regardless of where in the world you are, or how you choose to celebrate this season, we hope the upcoming days are filled with joy, peace, and lots of victorious battles! Thanks for being a part of Supremacy 1914, and here's to another year of thrilling gameplay and great fights.


    Stay safe, have fun, and keep playing Supremacy 1914!


    Happy Holidays!

    I assume this acquisition will consist of money changing hands with a good helping of gambling mechanics involved?


    Also, this is a little petty I know, but I don't see how this is a "new feature", when it's the basic neccessity that's required to use these cards, which are, in fact, apparently the only actual new feature aside from a new unit that nobody asked for?

    I am not sure what gives the idea that is a possibility, but there won't be gambling involved.

    I understand that an inventory system might not look like a big thing, but it is a crucial feature for the new Operations and rewards in general. It opens a lot of opportunities for the future as well.


    The inventory system is needed for the Operations to work. Rewards you get from the Operations which you unlock by playing the game are stored there.

    Regarding the paused section in the video. The video was taken with a dev account. These accounts are used to QA the game and take screenshots or videos like this, and always have gold and resources for these purposes.

    I understand the concerns you raise, and you bring up valid points. I can tell you that the team spent a lot of time on these features, and keeping the game balanced was and always is a high priority. We are keeping a close eye on game data in the weeks after the release tomorrow, and we are keeping an eye on everyones feedback on their experience, suggestions, and concerns.

    I, therefore, encourage you to share your experience with the feature with us, once it is live, as it would help us a lot.

    1702645401_news_images_29448.jpg

    The last part of our announcement is dedicated to one more interesting feature - the Inventory System.


    Introduction video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G94Pp8RfM_g


    The inventory system gives you the opportunity to pull booster and unit cards, keeping them stored in your inventory until you see fit for use. A tap on the icon situated on the top bar will grant you access to all your cards, ready for deployment at your convenience. Rather than being tied to a specific map, your inventory is linked to your account, meaning it's available across all maps.


    Any rewards procured from operations, as well as newly acquired unit cards, will find their place in your inventory. This will boost your game opportunities and introduce new dynamics into your strategy.


    The update of the year is approaching and we can’t wait to see you enjoying all our new features.

    Get ready for a new unit in Supremacy 1914 - The Stormtroopers

    Introduction video on YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HLw4WJkFWQ4

    We are introducing a new unit that will be available with the upcoming Operations. Stormtroopers are insanely fast offensive units and are quite the force! Give them a target and watch it crumble. When teamed up with Infantry for cover, they can clear out enemy fortifications.


    1702040089_news_images_29292.png


    The Stormtroopers will come with a new deployment mechanic. They can not be produced like a traditional unit, but instead will be deployed via new unit cards. Unit cards will be available as a reward for advancing through Operations. Besides the new unit, participating in Operations will also reward you with other units already existing in Supremacy 1914 and various kinds of reward cards. Those are Booster Cards which will shorten the time of production and construction, and Resource Cards which will grant you additional resources. These cards will all be stored in your inventory and we will talk about them later.


    1702041893_news_images_29306.png


    Watch out for our next update on December 19th and make sure you start completing Operations for getting Stormtroopers and other rewards.

    This is a rather delicate topic, as you can imagine. Stats are important. We don't want to risk losing anything and do this properly. This means this will not only be a general bug fix, but a change in how the stats are handled compared to the past to make the stats update more reliable. This is why it takes so long.

    We thought we were almost done, only to find some issues during the last test before the release, which put the topic back into development. This is a high-priority issue on our end, and the team is working for quite some time on this.

    Attention Generals!

    In this update, we implemented several balancing changes that are based on your discord feedback. This time we concentrated on hit chances. The one for Fortresses was increased and the ones for Workshops and Recruiting offices were reduced. At the same time, we reverted the scouting feature of balloons from the last update and lowered the concealing threshold for Fortresses.

    In addition to that, we made several adjustments to alliances and maps. The Middle East map is now available to players with a minimum rank of 3 instead of 10, so it is now more players can join. We also fixed a bug with alliance ranking that confused you about which alliance has a growing or a shrinking trend.

    Finally, we added more sorting options for the provinces on mobile devices to make it easier for you to do province management and fixed search bugs that occurred with some languages.

    For a complete overview of all changes, please check our detailed list of updates and share your feedback with us here on forum and our Discord server.

    Attention, General!


    Today's update removes the obsolete "Extra units" filter from the game filters, adds a recruitment timer to the Province Info panel, and implements reworked versions of the units, buildings, armies, and province details.


    Several bugs have been fixed with this release as well. Naval units no longer use different icons and display one hit point as health when split off from a stack. Inactive coalition members no longer lower their relations with their coalition members.


    These are just the highlights of today's release. For a complete overview of all changes, please check our detailed list of updates and share your feedback with us here on the forums and on our Discord server.


    Best of luck General,

    Can't get into legacy mode now.

    It seems to work on our accounts. Can you check your account settings? At the bottom right you should see a button to allow joining in legacy. You might need to click that again. If that doesn't work. Please reach out to our support team from within the game, so we can check what is going on.

    Attention, General!

    Today’s update brings new improvements to the Home Screen interface. We decided to make it more user-friendly and provided you with the most valuable information and options right on the first screen.

    A new feature was added to the maps: scorch marks are now displayed on the locations where ranged attacks occured. This will mark waged battles and display the damages to the territory

    Last but not least we optimized game performance and addressed FPS drops when hovering over elements on the map.

    Attention, General!

    Supremacy 1914 is available in Japanese now!

    Supremacy 1914 is now completely translated into Japanese. To change the language, click on the cogwheel in the top right on desktop, or check the Account setting in the "More" menu in the bottom right on the mobile app. Also, in light of the continuous influx of large amounts of new users and recent server problems, we've decided to reduce the amount of creatable maps per user per month. This should have a significant impact on server load and contribute to overall stability.

    Those of you who don’t want to join alliances can now close the recurring pop-up and it will not show up again. Just click the newly added ‘don’t show again’ button.

    And finally, apart from several bug fixes, we also decided to mute ambient sounds and background music in the main menu when playing on desktop

    Attention, General!

    Today’s update brings Army and Province Detail screens to Supremacy 1914 on desktop, deals with the usability and the time troops are moving on the map. This time we implemented additional information about your provinces and army with dedicated Details screens that can be opened by clicking on the name of an army or province in the Army or Province Bar at the bottom or your screen.

    We also adjusted the Embarking time calculation after the province capture. From now on embarkings reflect the ownership status of a province right away and you will spend less time on them.

    You will also not see the error message when adding an additional location to the moving path of a unit anymore.

    Last but not least you will now be able to see the ‘Sort by Building’ button, so that you can easily add the filter to the buildings in your province.

    For a complete overview of this update, please check our detailed Release Notes and share your feedback with us here on the forums and our Discord server.

    From now on Supremacy 1914 is available in Czech.


    Supremacy 1914 is now completely translated into Czech. To change the language to this new option or any other of the available languages, click on the cogwheel in the top right on desktop, or check the Account setting in the "More" menu in the bottom right on the mobile app.


    We also changed the default sorting order of pinned provinces, to make it more user friendly. By clicking the "pin" icon on the left of a province in the province overview, you can pin provinces that are of high interest to you.


    As you are most likely interested in finding these provinces right away, these provinces are now listed on top of the overview by default, instead of at the bottom. Should you wish to have the pinned provinces listed at the bottom though, you can still do that, by clicking on the column header to change the order.


    Among the bugs that were fixed today are the missing "Add Target" button in the army bar of several units, a rounding error when displaying certain numbers in several languages, and several issues where too many icons were displayed, or icons were missing.

    1647953061_news_images_23572.jpg


    Attention, Generals!


    Today's update brings a big change to planes in Supremacy 1914. We released a new airplane mechanic that changes many aspects of air combat. Damage during attacks and patrols is now dealt both ways, and targets can be adjusted within certain limitations without the need of flying back to an airbase. All patrols now attack air and ground units that are within their patrol circle. This happens every 15 minutes now, instead of 60 minutes prior to this change. These attacks deal 25% of the unit's damage both ways. The new mechanic makes planes in Supremacy much more flexible and a much bigger threat on the battlefield.


    To counterbalance the enemy in the sky, the statistics of other units have been adjusted, shaping some of them into a dedicated anti-air role. Please check our detailed Release Notes for a complete overview of all the changes with the new airplane mechanic, additional updates and bug fixes that were implemented with today's release.

    Please share your feedback here on the forums or on our Discord.

    Attention, General!


    Today's update brings some quality-of-life improvements for mobile Generals.

    As the Daily European provides valuable information for you, we improved the visibility of the newspaper in the Supremacy 1914 app and merged it with the Front Reports. This makes it easier for players using the app to quickly access it and gather the information it provides.


    Additionally, we added some tooltips in the app to provide more helpful information about certain aspects of the "About Player" overview.


    We also fixed some bugs across all platforms. Should you have noticed that some of your planes while in convoy on the road or at sea received a suspiciously high amount of damage from enemy planes patrolling the area, be assured that is a thing of the past now!


    Notably we also fixed a bug that caused planes controlled by AI to teleport to their target almost instantly without any notable travel time when moving towards their target.


    For a complete overview please check our detailed Release Notes and share your feedback with us on the forums and on Discord.


    We wish you best of luck on the battlefield!
