Season XXXI is coming!
This season will be played using the new Commerce Game setting! In commerce games, you don't get armies directly. Instead, you get gold, and use that gold to buy armies.
This has a few implications: One, you don't need to fully deploy each turn. You can save some gold for the next turn and surprise your opponent by deploying more, or use it as a strategy to confuse your opponent about your income.
Two, you can spend 4 gold to build a city. Cities act like a one-territory bonus of 1, so they will pay for themselves in four turns then start making money for you. To build a city, tap the gold button in the top left corner.
Three, army costs go up as you purchase more armies. The first 10 armies cost 1 gold each, the next 10 cost 2, the next 10 cost 3, etc.
How will these changes impact the strategic 1v1 play? Let's find out! The season begins on Saturday at midnight GMT (Friday evening in the Americas)

This season is also the first to use the new proposed seasonal ladder rules, which means the season will last for 75 days instead of 60.
Note that since this season uses commerce games, it can only be played in the new Unity client. If you want to participate in the season, but are having technical problems preventing you from being able to use the Unity client, please contact me.
