FAQ: Fog of War

Postby e_i_pi » Fri May 30, 2014 6:29 pm

Fog of War has been released!

The long awaited Fog of War option has been released on Art of War! For those unfamiliar with the concept of Fog of War, it is a game option that can be selected when you create a new game. When Fog of War is in effect, you can only see the territories that your faction owns, as well as any territories that directly border your faction. This leads to much more tactical gameplay, as enemies can't see you deploy and move troops behind your own lines, nor can they see battles that occur outside their visible range. Be wary though, the sword cuts both ways!

Additional to the game map being covered by Fog of War, the log entries are affected as well! If you own South America and nowhere else, you won't see outcomes of battles that occur in Asia or Europe. The full list of log entries is given below, who gets to see the entries:

So jump in and play some games with the new Fog of War option!
