My Early Thoughts...

  • Updated Supply Crates - Get better rewards, more frequently.
  • Free Daily Crate - Log in every day to earn a free Supply Crate!

    The above two will be great for those with a Level 6+ HQ as this will mean getting more Data Fragments! :)

  • Improved Conflict Prizes - Earn unique Supply Crates and unlock Elite units.

    This most likely refers to the Elite Data Fragments spoken of by RebelYell in his post found... here.

  • Crate Inventory - Daily, Conflict, and Night Raid crates are opened in the HQ Inventory.

    Hmmm... Interesting... Crates opened in HQ Inventory.

  • Rewards Surfacing - World and unit info now shows how to earn the best loot!

    I will sure look at this to see how it works and if it is useful.

This basically acts like a proper vault, right? Unobtainable resources, direct resource injections to continue building. Very interesting.

REMINDER - To Everyone...

Once you can download new SWC Client Release you will need to wait for the Servers to be "populated". Until they are, you will see an alert advising you of "Server Maintenance".

This is welcomed! If I read this right, no more dumping resources and you bank your rewards until you need them. OTOH, it does reduce attack loot because it's protected.

While it would certainly be welcome, I wouldn't count on the crate rewards going to HQ. To me it just sounds like crates you earn go to the HQ and you go there to open them when you want. The way they worded it is muddy as hell though, it could easily be either. I'm just too jaded to dare to hope they finally did something we've been asking for, for a long time.

Maybe they should hire somebody with a communications degree to write their patch notes. That way we actually know what they mean; and some San Franciscan hipster can put that worthless communications degree to better use than writing clickbait for some online rag. Win-win! :P
