Having trouble with teatflight this new one doesn't recognise that I have it installed so when I click the link it just takes me to the store to tell me to download testflight. Tried reinstalling but still no luck, loads up a blank testflight with the appstore over it.

I could always swap to my canadian account but I don't like to use that incase I can't keep saves or they have something I may want to purchase at some point.

Our account system is agnostic about where the app has come from, and all your purchases will be tied to the account you use to register in game. So no worries about losing anything no matter what Apple account or even device you buy on.

It's weird that test flight is not working though. I'd recommend contacting them to see what's going on (there's been a few issues, since Apple recently closed down the normal TestFlight website and do everything through their own website now).

Hi Ste86UK.

I know where that comes from :-)
When you click the Testflight link in your email client, it opens it in chrome, right?

Copy the URL in Safari and it'll work like a charm.

Let me know how you like the experience!

Very fun game I must say, download it and have been playing for over 2 hours. I am not sure about the balance though, so far I haven't lost a single game by using the one archer with increase damage item + two shield guard with increase speed item formation. The shield guards are quite tanky and can act as bait to lure enemies into archer range, then when their health are low, they can be used to kite the enemies as well. Haven't try any other unit yet but the formation I just mentioned is pretty sick.

I have some question about unit ability as well, what exactly does the Calvary Charge do ? It said +damage and speed to targeted unit. Does that mean the calvary get increase damage and speed against any units you target ? Also I notice that the calvary don't auto attack. Do I have to specifically target an enemy unit for them to attack ?

Also how do you increase your rank ? I win a lot of game but I keep stuck at Bronze III ?

General Chaos was freaky awesome! One of the best Sega games ever. If this one is more or less the same, it should be a napalm bomb! Is there any game play video on the net?

Upd: found on the second page here

Hey Orpheus,

The charge ability triggers if you draw a line directly onto an enemy unit (line turns red and you get the animated orange crosshair). The line has to be long enough and can't be interfered with for the charge to kick in (there is a VFX and the damage bonus is very noticeable!)

Re: auto-attacking, they do! Let us know if you're having problems with it, we're still polishing things up including the combat logic.

Cheers,
Pin

@PinW

Hey thank you for your fast reply

May I ask how do you raise your rank ? I win a lot of battle but still stuck at Bronze III, point 995. Also is it normal that all of my opponents are [officer <insert name here> ] ? I am quite sure that I choose 1v1 ladder as my game mode. Thanks.

Yes, we've turned bots on in the ladder for now until we get some more users into the game!

Game Impressions

This game is fantastic, and only getting better and better. Anybody who enjoys strategy or tactics games will love it. I've sunk a ton of hours into Ember Conflict already... The gameplay is fast and furious, it's more eSport than anything else pitting you against other humans in live tournaments that last 1-2 minutes. It's got a serious "just one more game" feel to it...

The level of customization and variety allows you to develop your own distinct play style and wreak some serious havoc.

Also now they have an Everyplay community with tons of video replays to brush up on tactics and strategies: https://everyplay.com/the-ember-conflict/home

Plus, it has Pugs, Battle Tigers, Dinosaurs, and more! SOLD!
