Dominations - Progression and Resource Update

ProgAccUpdatesBanner2.png


As DomiNations has continued to grow over the years, so has the amount of time and dedication it takes to progress to the heart of the game. With this in mind, we are continuously looking for ways to improve the experience for both new and longstanding players alike.
With DomiNations Update 12.1, we're implementing a series of changes aimed at helping players progress faster and more efficiently, at all stages of the game.

As a new player, it doesn't take very long to start running into timers that halt progression. We'd like to make it easier for new players to get even further into the game before experiencing the weight of longer build times. A lot of fun content unlocks early on, and this should allow new players to sink their teeth into more as they are just starting out.

For established, experienced players, it becomes quite easy to run out of ways to interact with your base as Citizens can sometimes be tied up on upgrades for weeks at a time. In addition to timer reductions, we’ve also reduced the Citizen requirements across some of your daily interactions. With those aspects combined, we aim to ensure players can have more frequent opportunities to manage and advance their town.





Time Reductions:
  • Build Time Reduction- (includes ALL Buildings except Wonders)
    • Dawn Age to Gunpowder Age 95% Reduction
    • Enlightenment Age 90% Reduction
    • Industrial Age 80% Reduction
    • Global Age 35% Reduction
    • Atomic Age to Digital Age 20% Reduction
    • Information Age to Drone Age 10% Reduction
  • Research Time Reduction- (includes ONLY Troops, Tactics, Aircraft, and Factory. Generals and Coalitions will remain the same.)
    • Dawn Age to Iron Age 75% Reduction
    • Classical Age and Medieval Age 60% Reduction
    • Gunpowder Age and Enlightenment 50% Reduction
    • Industrial Age 35% Reduction
    • Global Age 25% Reduction
    • Atomic Age 10% Reduction

Citizen Requirement Reductions:
  • Forest Clearing - 2 Citizens
  • Hunt ANY Animal - 1 Citizen
  • Fruit Trees and Gold Mines - 1 Citizen
  • ALL Expeditions - 1 Citizen
    • Stacks with Library Research will reduce Citizen requirement to 0 if ‘Shipping’ Level 5 is researched
  • Wonder Construction - 4 Citizens
  • Castle Upgrades - 4 Citizens
  • Town Hall Upgrades - 4 Citizens


Increased Resource Shipments
A series of new Resource Shipment chest will become available. You’ll find these chests as apart of Quest Event rewards, Marco Polo exchanges, and more. These Resource Shipment chests will offer a guaranteed total between their small, medium, and large versions that you can grab to fill resources at a cheaper rate!



These changes will take place as soon as we release the 12.1 Update shortly! With these changes, we hope to see many DomiNations players reaching their goals faster, and encouraging more advanced players to be able to find their place competitively in World Wars. We'd love to hear your thoughts on these changes, do you see these changes benefiting you?

EDIT:
As of 12/4/23 3:46 PM EST a fix went out to cover the following:

  • Fixed the issue where one Gold Mine still required 2 Villagers
  • Swapping a Wonder requires only 4 Villagers

Well hate to be one to point fact old players are having money speeds up and time we spent devalued and you handing new players stuff we paid full price for half off or more. This not cool and players the spent should be compensated in some way. You can paint the rose picture of big player bases etc but it don’t cover up fact you charging new player half as much as us. Sorry but I feel ripped off
I know BHG won’t compensate the old timers who supported them from beginning we mean nothing apparently.
Well as I said nothing for older account holders not even kiss before cutting your accounts value by atleast half. With just promise expanded player base of basically multi accounts. So old Seek spent 8 years and lots of cash just for new to make same level in 2-4 years and spend less then half of what old seek had to pay. Come on BHG be better then this.
 
I cannot believe what I 'm reading! I never thought I would live to see the day BHG reduces the upgrade time. NEVER!
And yet they did it and I am very happy for it. I was expecting to come over here and see people hugging, kissing, endless beer contests and fireworks !!


And all I see is complaints? what???

I paid real money for my high level accounts to buy speedups and crowns. Did I get what I wanted? YES!
Did I use those bought resources to speed up my base/unit upgrades? YES!
Is the exchange fair? YES!
Then what right do we have to request anything ?

What is the age that most people stop playing? Industria/globall! When the upgrade times skyrocket.
Is the game experiencing a reduced number of players after global age? YES!
How many reach info age and beyond? Less than 10% maybe?

So you guys see that the game needs this change ASAP! If we had it earlier then maybe we would have more players.
The mentality that just because we suffered for 15-20 days upgrading, everyone else must experience forever the same suffering is completely nuts!
I for once, I am super happy and optimistic for this and do not care that I won't enjoy any of this benefit as both accounts are 400+. It will help the game progress for everyone else and that is good as we need more players to the top.
We are looking at the tree and miss the forest behind...

I don't understand it either, I think this change is VERY VERY good.

I'm VIP 13 soon to be 14 and I don't complain about what happened 4-5 years ago? and how much did I spend back then.

If I bought a TV 5 years ago, I won't be able to sell it today for the same price, it will most likely be free…

That was an important and right step from Domi !!!!

Someone will somehow always find something to cry about

Well say I am crying or whatever I don’treally care. They basically devalued accounts so they can get more multi accounts and few new players.

I am not alone feeling ripped off for money and time. This was a big clue that older accounts are no longer important.

„Money and Time“ this is funny

Nobody forced you to buy something 3-4 years ago.
Time ? It's a game... it's a waste of time anyway then don't play it, it seems like you're not interested in having fun. it's a hobby and nothing more

If you can get angry about someone like that then I'm sorry for you
 
Bottom line, this was a good move by BHG. Yes, I spent money over the years on speed ups and crowns, but this is now. I also feel this move was needed to grow the game base of players which helps everyone.
Older players, ask yourselves. Do you want this game to survive many more years? Well, this move will contribute to that.
 
Excellent news. We appreciate your listening to our needs and proposals. Getting new players in the game is very important for the long life of the game itself. Even being drone and playing for 5 years to get where I am, I can totally understand that newer players will be able to reach Drone in less time
 
Is this 1 April joke? Reducing the building times? Waaaaaaaaahhh..this one I never saw it coming.jesus..this is great news for the lower level players..excellent news. My sincere thanks for this update.

I want game to survive as for not caring I am level 424 and been here since start. Yea it may seem cool to stick up for game maker. Fact remains I spent money and time. There should be no devaluation of my account without some short of compensation.
So now player that starts or older player with multiple accounts gets to accomplish what we for less than half time and money. Now how is this fair to old accounts for them to fight a slightly increased player base and nothing else.
They should at make some sort of make up for the older account holders. Right is right and wrong is wrong yea right to make improvements for new players Wrong for ignoring and insulting older account holders for devaluing their accounts. But please continue with your just being a cry baby etc it still don’t make what they did right. I have right to feel way I do you may feel differently. I agree to disagree but I will never agree with what BHG has done. Feel ripped off
 
Nice overall update. I think I might consider an alt (no way!). Drone+ age players who upgraded their docks will be very unhappy. With free dock prizes, there will be no need for supplies and other museum stuff considering you can have expeditions 24/7 with no restrictions. Also, it's not that bad to upgrade more Generals for extra things. Lots of free TTs will be excellent and we can have many many wall breaker and air strike TTs. The castle will change from 7-citizen defense upgrade to 3-citizen upgrade (most to least number of citizens ;) ).
the wonders and the town centres cost the most citizens actually...
 
Great changes, but is there any clarification on whether the research upgrades times also apply to university?

The reductions do not apply to University research. They only apply to Troops, Tactics, Aircraft, and Factory unit upgrades.
 
I would like to know the reduced upgrade time for all buildings and troops. Still, I appreciate it because new buildings that will be added at some point will have reduced upgrade times. Thank you.
