The app store leaked it. It's in the news section now.

Wonderful news If the new levels get their own designs, that would be a truly great weekend how is that going to work?

I don't know if the design will change.
Upgrading both buildings requires a fully upgraded Fortress or Underworld. If one of the buildings (e.g. Mages' Tower) hasn't been maxed out yet, you cannot upgrade the Gem Mine to levels 21-25.

Hi Leander,

Does the Forest Rarity run Friday through Monday as well? or just Saturday/Sunday as usual?

It's good to see the fortress receiving some updates, but I'm disappointed about the way it is going to be done in this update. First, it breaks the main rule of the fortress/underworld: the main building determines the maximum level of other buildings. And second, the maxed out fortress requirement is really bad. With level 20 wall doing regular counter attacks is impossible, and after all active players would get maximized defenses, doing even normal attacks would be very hard. Then where are the players going to get the resources for level 25 gem mine gems from? I assume the gems from level 21-25 mines will be significantly more expensive than from level 20. This problem already exists for players with level 19-20 gem mines and low fortress ratings, since level 20 woodcutter hut and quarry alone can't pay off for constant gem production from higher than level 18 gem mine.

It would have been much better if the fortress and underworld extensions were done in the line with the current fortress system: extend the maximum level for the main building by +5 too, as well as for woodcutter hut and quarry, since they are needed to support the gem production. And don't add any requirements for level 21+ buildings other than the level of the main building.

Well.. swapping between upgrades and making decisions what to upgrade next was fun.

This not so much. But it certainly is Something.

Seems I won't be getting gems for the next 3 months (rough estimate).

I am concerned about mining prices too, but this is not right. My fortress is maxed out almost a year, I do not attack, spin wheel only 1x a day, mine constantly (3-4 gems a day) and before forest event I dont get under maybe 250M wood and 80M stone. During event I refill my storage to max and happily continue. Truth is, noone is attacking me either, my server is not too active and most active players have their fortresses finished too.

For me, this is quite sweet spot and Im ok with its state. If the price will rise significantly with additional upgrade, I will consider not to upgrade. Imho few hundred more stats would be nice, but probably not worth breaking the system and need to save resources for every single new gem...

Thanks!

New Servers that have the Gem Mine but do not qualify for Black Gems (Fortress Level 15) ... will they be receiving Black Gems as well?
