Latest Patch notes (9/24/2019) – The Great Recycling

We here at Boomzap like to think of ourselves as eco-friendly people. That means apart from the two new missions, two new maps, three new units, various campaign fixes, and more, we’ve also now added the ability to recycle your units. After all, we have all got to do our part for the environment.

But for real, we aim to use this new recycling mechanic to alleviate mobility issues in the game, allowing you to essentially teleport units by sending them back to your hand and resummoning them next to your hero the next turn. We’ve also changed a few of the game rules to hopefully allow more wiggle room for different strategies. All of that good stuff and more, all waiting for you in this week’s patch notes for Last Regiment.
