Hello Dawners

We updated BattleDawn with the following features:

1. you can't add a space before or after your name in the name changing boost. example: " hero " instead of "hero"
2. Whenever a new world start, there will be in the top left corner a countdown counting from 24:00 to 0:00 and the world will start automatically when it reaches 0:00
3. Leaders find in the 'my alliance' tab an option to close or open the alliance for new recruits. The default setting is 'open' and new members can join every alliance without an invitation (by clicking on the leaders colony -> join alliance)
4. Agent actions cost energy no matter if they fail or succeed
5. events of jamming doesn't auto pop-up anymore
6. Medals are now displayed like: 'medal' x 3 instead of 'medal medal medal'

Wouldn't it make more sense to have it's default as closed? People who miss the updates are going to wonder why they're getting random people joining their alliance and if you forget starting an era off or some player gets lucky clicking your colony you're going to have to kick them and reset their control ticks? :roll:

Ilona this will throww sooooo many people off(The open recruit part)because controll ticks manage this game and if you play with friends or set team it will be a hassle, dont you think?....but nice touch on the medals i saw tht on rc it looks nice

we want to help newbies to find members for their alliance or to join an alliance.
It is more easy to disable the function as player who has already knowledge about the game, than activating it as new player.
Also, when you create an alliance, it takes just a second to change it to 'close'.

The reason for it being open is quite simple, it is to make it as simple as possible for new players to find an allanace. As I think many of you would agree with, the social aspect of battledawn is a huge part of the game, that's why they need a simple way to get into an alliance with others who might help them, as soon as possible so they don't feel alone.

This is also crutial for the newbs who make their own alliances. The chances of them understanding how to make it open is far smaller than the chances of us experienced players understanding that if we don't want randoms in our alliance, we close it.

The medal system seems to be better. Some players had too many and made the game look less professional by having them off the mark.

Over all I think this is a good update :)
