Here's a brief overview of all the features and improvements that have been created and implemented since its very first steps over 2 years ago:

  1. Unit promotions (all castle units, except for the T4 units have a chance to be upgraded to stronger and better ones, all the promotions are within one tier only)
  2. Tactical improvements, since there are a lot of new abilities, spells and units the AI will surprise you with new combinations of challenging enemies.
