Final changes for Age 44, The age of Emergence. Thank you everyone for your input on these changes, it has taken far too long to balance these, and needless to say I have changed my mind far too many times. But I appreciate all the input so many of you have given. Late Changes are listed in Orange, Game Dynamics Changes in Yellow. I wish you all the best of luck for the age.
Charts have been updated, but I had some issues removing the Test Age, this is listed as the age of Null and we will remove this when we get time
Game Mechanic Updates
I am parking the idea of changing this for now, I am looking for a simple and understandable way of giving credit for harder wars, wars of larger kingdoms and potentially late game wars too. Any sensible suggestions to (1:1) thank you.

Winning KD: receive 1 war win, 1 War Point and 10% of the losing KD`s honor.

If the total provinces across both KD`s > 10
