Client version 1.0.53 (both Android & iOS)
(Be sure to get the new client when it becomes available in your platform's store!)

Features

    • The build cursor now stays active when placing new traps in places where there is no adjacent building space.
    • Messages about the amount of resources collected when tapping on a resource Room will now display longer to give players more time to note the amount gained.

    • Players will now receive a prompt indicating that they have no room for resources if a current training/upgrade/summoning is canceled while at max capacity of either gold or stone.
    • The Guard Post now costs 750,000 Stone to build.
    • Aside from your imps who are carrying out the task, other Minions are now consistently pushed out of the way when Fill Dirt is used.
    • Improved the information contained in various information windows (Rooms, Minions, Traps, Spells, etc.).
    • Unclaimed Gold Mines and Stone Quarries can now be cut off via Fill Dirt. Once claimed, however, they will need to have a valid dug-out pathway at all times.
    • The upgrade prompt over buildings will now only be displayed if an upgrade is available (based on upgrade requirements) and if you have enough of the required resource.
    • We’ve adjusted the build timers, upgrade timers, and costs for the following buildings: Torture Chamber, Graveyard, and the Unholy Temple.

    • We’ve added a pending Officer approval label for Guild invitations.
    • Added error messaging for attempts at selecting inappropriate or in-use guild names, as well as for inviting someone who hasn't yet built a Guild Lair.
    • In an effort to mitigate confusion, when viewing Guild Leaderboards, the “Your Score” overlay at the bottom of the screen now properly reflects your guild’s cumulative trophy counts, rather than combat score.
    • Successful Guild invites will now generate a dialogue box to indicate the success.
    • We’ve adjusted the gold Donation amount required for most Guild Perks. For Guilds with pre-existing perks, we’ve ensured that those obtained previously remain unlocked after the change.

    • Players may now activate an available replacement Immortal (that has already been Recruited to their cause), when others in their arsenal have been Knocked Out or Captured.

    • Withdrawn Guild Minions will now display the defender (shield) icon while meandering around the Guild Lair in build mode.
    Miscellaneous
    • Added more descriptive error messaging for purchases, where appropriate.
    PvE Campaign

    Rooms
    • Added Research Cancel button to the Dark Library (via spell book)
    User Interface
    • We’ve removed auto-rush functionality: Tapping anywhere on your screen while a Rush countdown timer is currently active will now cancel the countdown/Rush, instead of completing it. In essence, this means that your entire screen becomes one big Cancel button.
    • Enabled non-ascii capable keyboards
    • Cleaned up and improved touch controls.
    • Eliminated center screen message for Achievements.
    • Launching the application while in airplane mode on iOS will prompt the user to disable Airplane mode as an internet connection is required to play.

    • We’ve made an effort to ensure that information regarding attack speed is present for all Rooms/Minions where appropriate
    • (Android-specific) The application will give a better description when a user is already logged in on another Android device with the same Google+ ID.
    Bug Fixes
    Achievements
    • The “Veterans of the Long War” achievement progress bar will now display properly.
    • Fixed Achievement progress to ensure that all progress meters (Complete, In Progress, etc.) are updated properly when an Achievement is completed.
    • Fixed an issue where certain Guild Achievements were not updated properly, if the requirements were no longer met.
    Audio & Art
    • Ambient effects will no longer play on creatures when they're hidden, because… well, you know… they’re hidden.
    • Fixed an animation glitch on Victory/Defeat screen.
    • Tweaked animation on the Spring Trap to ensure that it plays properly with the associated action.
    • Fixed an issue with the audio system that could mute a player’s music when launching the application.
    • Fixed an instance where audio could be stuck in a muted state after a reconnect.
    Dungeon Design & Management
    • Fixed an issue where the resource gathering effect would trigger erroneously when upgrading the Gold Mines, Stone Quarries and Dark Library while full on resources.
    • Updated messaging for Traps and Doors to ensure that they reflect requirements properly. This fixes an issue where the information could be misleading if the user already claimed all available mines and quarries.
    • We’ve fixed an issue where if all imps are busy and a building upgrade requires additional resources, the windows for purchasing the additional resources and then imps could repeat.
    • Imp tasks will no longer transfer to the first available Imp when restarting the application. This is a visual indication/change only; typically only applicable if/when a task is assigned to an Imp that is further to the right of the screen when viewing available Imps, and the Imp(s) on the left currently have no assigned task. Now, tasks will stay assigned to the imp to which you originally assigned it.
    • Fixed an inconsistency in how the capacity increase information that is required for Treasury and Warehouse displays Dungeon Heart level for early levels.
    • The Guard Post’s information screen has been updated to reflect that it only has health and no damage.
    • Fixed how upgrade time is calculated on the game client to ensure that it’s more in sync with the time that will be taken. This fixes an issue where the time displayed in the upgrade window was more than what was displayed in game.

    Game Performance

    • Fixed how the game responds to hidden Traps being revealed, to reduce the effect on frame rate and to prevent stutter.
    • Players can no longer interact with their dungeon after hitting the “Okay” button on the “Ready to Go?” screen for a defensive raid, fixing an issue where this could cause instability.
    • The game will no longer recognize multiple presses on certain buttons that could result in the application freezing when this occurred.
    • Fixed a rare crash that could occur during specific Replays if certain requirements were met.
    • Fixed a crash that could occur if idling out while visiting another player’s Dungeon.
    • Fixed a crash that could occur on connection failure.
    • The application will no longer become stuck if a player idles out of the game while in the Guild donate window.
    • Fix for a crash that could occur if attempting to cancel an upgrade while full of resources and the upgrade completes.
    • Fix for a crash that could occur in a very specific order of operations while starting a raid and hitting the “Start” button repeatedly.
    • Fixed an issue where having the Guild Perk “Leg Day” active and summoning (in specific situations) could cause a crash.
    • In an effort to improve visual optimization, the exterior walls on Reinforced Walls will no longer render as they're being moved.

    • (iOS-specific) We’ve adjusted how the client handles multi-touch, to solve for two rare crash instances.
    Gameplay
    • Fixed more instances where Replays could be inaccurate
    • Exclusive raids will no longer erroneously indicate that a player’s Cave-In will be disabled, as exclusive raids do not cancel Cave-In.

    • Modified projectile algorithms to ensure that they will hit enemies properly, fixing a few cases where a projectile could pass through a creature.

    • The “DK Premium” pop-up will no longer appear after a successful raid if that particular boost is already active.
    • When a player chooses Revenge from a Defense Replay, the “Got it” option is now accessible sooner. (Previously, a few seconds would elapse.)
    • While using Visit mode, we’ve adjusted how dungeons being visited display information to the visitor, to respect hidden Traps.
    • We’ve fixed the calculation formula (and rounding) for incorrect victory star count at 50% damage. In other words, this fixes an inconsistency in how the destruction percentage is displayed in the raid screen and the victory/defeat screen.
    • Fixed an inconsistency in how the ‘Capacity increased’ screen would trigger, so that it accurately reflects the increase at the proper time.
    • Disabling Rush timers before they finish will now work more consistently, regardless of the type of Rush.

    • The scheduled raid button will now be disabled once it has been completed.
    • Fixed an issue where Minions could pass through hidden Traps, revealing their location by nature of their pathing.
    • The “Attack” and “Defend” buttons will no longer function if under the “deeper dungeons” banner at the top of the screen, to prevent the erroneous initiation of campaign dungeons.
    • The game will now hide Rush options in dig info for tiles whose total dig times are less than or equal to Rush confirm countdown duration
    • If/When the server is at capacity, we’ve made associated messaging about this more informative.

    Guilds
    • Fixed an issue where the application could freeze when donating gold to a guild for the first time.

    • Fixed an issue with the “Tap for Mana” guild perk that could cause the mana collected to exceed maximum.
    • Made changes to the Guild Chat input to account for inconsistencies in amount of characters allowed by individual devices.
    • Chat messages over 140 characters will no longer display incorrectly in chat.
    • Fixed how Guilds handle being full. This fixes an issue where the member list could be incorrect and cause a failure to kick out members or failure to add a final member.

    • Fixed an issue where summoning an Immortal while another Immortal is dazed would cause the inactive one to not be shown properly.
    • If a ground-based Immortal is knocked out, players can now deploy a Minion on the tile the Immortal is on, fixing an issue where the Immortal would block placement previously.
    • Fixed an issue where Immortal icons could be caused to overlap if a player cancelled out of the menu immediately after summoning an Immortal.
    • Added Level 5 training time requirements to Tiny, as it was missing from the information panel.
