GU11 Patch Notes
General Game Updates
Continental Domination Thresholds
Domination requirement for securing continent benefits has been lowered from 100% to 75% of the territory on the continent.
The point where a domination benefit will be lost increased from 0% to 15% of owned territory.
The Map Statistic for Territory Control now has a visual representation of the thresholds where benefits will be gained and lost.
Our goal is to make continent domination and denial during prime time a tough but reasonably achievable goal and to reduce the situations where entire empires would hold out in a single facility.

The below are the new resource costs for each vehicle type and the MAX unit.
Flash: 100
Sunderer: 400
Lightning: 300
Magrider: 450
Vanguard: 450
Prowler: 450
Scythe: 250
Reaver: 250
Mosquito: 250
Liberator: 350
