The release brings a new feature to make the game even more attractive for everyone: an option to auto-finish the battle by instantly bringing results of it from where the player left. This is very useful for battles when the outcome is obvious and you just want to skip a boring part of it. Default hotkey for this is Q.

Tap Q to instantly finish the battle.

Army exchange was improved to make the experience more pleasant. You can use arrows in hero meeting dialog to move whole army with a selected stack.

The team added difficulty level for campaigns. You can select between Easy, Normal or Hard. The difference between these modes is in AI behavior. If you feel that a campaign is too hard to complete, you can lower the difficulty and try again.
