One of the coolest new things in version 1.5 is the extra tool-tip data, which gives a danger level for all front-line territories. It basically tells you the probable result of an all-in battle there.

It ranges from 'Extreme Danger' to 'Extremely Defendable'. Anything in Danger level or above would lose an all-in battle from both sides.

I like the danger level tooltip - seems a little unpolished, like it doesn't always give the data for every frontline territory, but I'm sure it'll become increasingly useful with time.

My biggest gripe so far is that the arrows for units currently ordered to move are sometimes a little 'off' - not sure why. Anyone else noticing that?

If you can grab a screenshot of anytime the tooltip data seems 'off' that would be helpful. I thought I got it working correctly.

yea, the arrows could use some more love...

all feedback welcome, we are continuing to update Lux Alliance actively, so now's the time to request things!

I'm still trying to figure out the outcomes on Capture the flag modes. So if both enemies captures their enemies flags the game still commences correct? Until all flags are owned by 1 alliance. Am I understanding this correctly?
