Update 25 Release Notes

Updated: May 7, 2019

Important Notices For Update 25

1) The next war is starting at 11AM EDT on Thursday, April 25th

2) The requirements for winning the war have been significantly reduced (< 5% the number of upgrade parts that were previously required) so be prepared for a possible change in early game strategy. See release notes below for details.

3) Tempest Island might be unavailable in the next war so any Supply Caches built there might not be available. We hope to address this scenario in future updates.
