    I think you've made a very good observation here. There does tend to be a tendancy to replace the old with the new rather than complimenting the existing with new stuff. Certainly with Generals, apart from the Champions of Anteria and Boris, MMa's and MG's, the rest are repeats or obsolete.

    Not for the last 3 years at least.... When I joined there were 3 new Champs, then Mary, Medic, Scientist, Boris, now Gemini. The only new adventures in that time are the MCC ventures, which are clever and fun and challenging but kind of old news now. Unless you also count that Songs and Curses venture (meh). So I can't see any connection between new generals and new adventures being released these days, although I certainly wish it were the case.

    There is no point, its just normal release process for BB. Balancing stuff across the entire domain would take time and effort, so they simply skip both the 'time' and 'effort' part and with the limited resources they have they instead introduce the next combination of in-game attributes they can put together (that wasnt utilized before) as a new specialist. Or a building.

    Hence you got the improved improved watermill, a Mad scientist, recently Boris whos an equvalent of Mad scientist for different type of units (which by the way was pretty much an equivalent of Nusala), a geologist for every possible resource even though at this point in time they're essentially obsolete, down the line you can probably expect improved improved fisherman and improved stonemason etc.

    Remember, it doesnt have to make sense, it just has to be new.

    For testing purposes you can buy it from merchant test section which also has level up tokens.

    Question Nice new Contaent, so will they work on HTML 5.0 support?

    I like the still developping stuff so it gues would make it least 2 more years gameplay? If i see before they did take down the Anno online server.

    What i remember Flash wil be down soon. Even the testserver did not migrate to HTML 5.0 for gaming, It must be possible the online game Forge of Empires did migrate already 1 year for the most part to 5.0 if you browser would support it and stopt with flash.

    Still no news on an Improved Mayor's House?
    We love our new CM.

    Newfoundland: 20th November 2011 to 25th November 2014. RIP
    It was good while it lasted.

    So there is 1 instance where a new general was released with a new adventure, and 5 instances where it was not the case. Based on the events of the last 3 years there is no correlation between new generals and new adventures. "nuff said."

    Besides that point, who really wanted another level 36 adventure anyway? Unless you are around level 40-ish, and it provides some compelling reason to run it instead of SA/Outlaws, it will probably just sit in the junk drawer along with GP, SotV, WM, etc.
