    Dragon legion is a neutral legion, you can't choose it. In advance setting page, turn on the dragon. Then you can find a dragon nest in map, capture it will allow you recruit dragon units.

    I was happy to read what SoA said but I’m not liking the sound of what LordGek is saying.

    What are the “events”? If you can win said event by watching an ad, even if you’ve gone for the unlock then I’m not sure I’m keen.

    100% agree with this.
    I almost wet my pants when I saw this game and was heading off to buy it but what LordGek has posted has stopped me in my tracks.
    I am not about to spend $10 AUD on a “premium” game that has ads you need to watch to get the best result.
    No, nope, no way.
    Naughty, naughty, developer. :(
    This is really stinky as the Steam version has no such shenanigans.
    Charge the same as the Steam version if you must to get rid of the ads please.

    EDIT;
    After visiting the Steam forum for the game I just wanted to clarify something.
    The ads will give you extra rewards and are not there to make the game give you the same reward as the “no ads” Steam version, which was what I incorrectly thought was happening.
    So in effect you watch an ad to get a cheat.

    I still don’t like it but at least the dev hasn’t crippled the mobile version like some devs do.

    An option before you start a game that lets you select if you want the ad supported advantage would be most welcome I think.
    As it stands now you are much too tempted to hit the ad to get the best outcome. For a premium game that is a pretty cheesy thing to have imho.
    Apart from that, the game is a very nice tactical rpg.

    Yes you get it. The Ads option works like additional cheating options for mobile. You can ignore them if you don't like it. The IOS version without AD options is same as the steam version. I will add a button to let people turn off it in setting page.

    Thank you totally for adding that option!
    Much appreciated. :)
    Glad that the ad situation is now resolved, as far as I am concerned anyways.
    I just went and bought the whole package after reading your reply.

    Another question;
    I notice that the Achievements tab on the main menu is greyed out, no doubt due to them being Steam achievements.
    Do you plan to add maybe Game Centre achievements or something?
    If not perhaps consider removing that tab for the mobile version?

    I don't think so. Just individual random map skirmishes and a map editor.

    Correct.
    Campaign is yet to be done.
    According to Steam posts on 18th April this year...... after the map editor was added the campaign was next to do.
    The map editor has since been added so.......

    Why the 1 gb install? Is it music or something?

    Most of them are images and animations. We have 70+ units and heroes.

    Update is out.
    The option is now there to disable the ad supported advantage, though you can disable/enable it at any time. I feel it would have been better to only have it available in the map setup so as not to temp you enable it if things are getting a bit tough.
    Oh well, at least the option is now available and if you are strong willed enough you wont see those best option ads anymore.

    And an in game equipment store has been added.

    There is a couple of new iaps now as well:

    Game Pass;
    This iap will allow you to purchase items from the equipment store for their sale value (which means the cost will be lower) and refreshing the hero talent screen no longer requires watching an ad.
    I don’t quite understand what the third part of this iap means. “In game event advertising options do not need to watch ads”.
    I thought that was removed with purchasing the premium version? Perhaps this is for people who only want to play with the $1 game?

    Additional Hero;
    And there are two new characters you can buy. Male/female pirates.
    Unfortunately you don’t have any stats you can see on them before deciding if they are worth getting. A real shame.

    I think it's pretty clear, it simply means if you buy the Game Pass you can still have the broken ad sponsored options but without even having to watch an ad. Remember, when the player watches an ad by choice for a cheat it isn't the same as a normal FORCED ad in the non-premium version.

    So if trying to play honestly and equal to the way it is on Steam, you'd disable the ad sponsored options and skip on the Game Pass.

    Although, if reasonably priced, I'll probably snag the pirates IAP.

    Actually you can see the 2 new neutrals' details in the game's encyclopedia under Heroes - Mercenary.

    Thanks for the reference to the encyclopaedia.

    So it would appear that the Game Pass is just a mobile addon?
    In fact I couldn’t even find a reference to the in game equipment store over on Steam for that version of the game.
    From what I understand the game was released on Steam as an Early Access game at the start of this year and the mobile version has just recently been released.
    And now it is the mobile version that is trying out all these various monetary things to see how they fly.

    Oh and btw, the two characters will cost $6 AUD. A bit on the high side when compared to $11 AUD to get the full game.
    But I will probably get them if the game continues to suck me in, as it has so far.

    Bought this and IAP on principle alone. So nice to see Steam games make their way here.
