As I was saying in my previous article about the troop retrain feature, a brand new nation has made its way to DomiNations, increasing the number of available nations in the game to eight. Korea is the new nation and it was launched as a celebration for the game’s launch on the Asian markets and localization with new languages. It also proves that most of the players in the game are from Asia, as there are three Asian nations in the game right now, while major ones (like Russians, Indians or even Americans) are completely missing. Fortunately, the game’s developers have promised that this is just one of more upcoming new nations, so there will be a lot of diversity soon in the game.
Back to the newly launched nation – Korea – let’s find out all the nice details about it!
Ingenuity – this allows you to go with an extra War Tactic into battle. They are expensive and take a long time to train, but one extra tactic can be extremely useful in a difficult battle.
Resilience – this returns 10% of the loot stolen when you’re defending your base, so it adds to the feeling that this is indeed a nation that’s a bit more useful in the later stages of the game.
Hwarang (upgrades to Singijeon and Righteous Rifleman): these are special archer units who deal 40% more damage than regular archers. Here is how the Royal Hwarang (medieval age) looks like:
All in all, Korea is a good nation and an interesting one overall. I am not really the biggest fan of the Nation’s powers, but I can see that they can be really useful in the later stages of the game – Enlightenment and above when you will usually have a lot more resources stocked up and an extra tactic when finding an opponent with a ton of resources would become extremely useful. Plus, the archer that does 40% more damage is really good…
What do you think about Korea in DomiNations? Would you make the switch or did you do it already? Or you prefer one of the starter nations?
