All resources are drawn from the squads assigned accesspoint
At mission start only one of each type of squad per accesspoint will be sent to the action game, new ones will be requested as they fill up
The action server requests a new squad of the same type from the war server every time there are no more free slots. This is done per accesspoint

Selection must be done within first 10 seconds of vehicle life

Strategy & Soldier Selection

    • Bombs away badge is now a multiplier on resupply time for fighterplanes instead of extra bombs
    • Battle System Changes
Skirmish missions do not take place on accesspoints anymore.
Friendly ATs are placed on the center of the battlefield.
Friendly ATs reaching a location with an assault battle can pass through and join the defenders at battlefield center.
Losing faction of an assault battle has to retreat, and no subsequent battle is triggered on the battlefield.
ATs placed on the center of town treat any friendly accesspoint on that battlefield as their retreat starting point.
If an attacker accesspoint is captured by defenders, all ATs are retreated from that accesspoint.
Newly deployed ATs are deployed on the battlefield center of friendly towns, not on accesspoints.
While a war mission has not been "activated", the third faction can join the mission. After activation, the mission gets locked with the original 2 factions and the third faction will have to wait till the current battle ends.
    • Campaign Victory Condition Changes
First faction with 12 major cities wins the war.
If one of the factions loses all its major cities, but none of its enemies have 12 major cities. Then the faction with the highest number of major cities wins the war.
    • AT Retreat Behaviour
Each AT has the ability to retreat from a mission.
Each retreat will reduce the resources on that AT by 25% of its max strength, or all resources, whichever is higher.
Any resources left from a retreat cannot be retrieved by the AT post battle, nor can the AT earn warfunds from their actions in the action game.
    • Mission Setup Changes
Each war mission will not be "activated" for 10 minutes after battle creation.
The AT prioritized selection system has been removed.
All ATs reaching a mission, are commited to the action game.
Individual ATs do not show up in the action game.
Each AT "type" per accesspoint is represented as a grouped "pool", containing resources from all ATs of that type on the accesspoint.
When action players spawn from these "pools", warserver randomly deducts spawns from one of the AT belonging to the pool.
When a spawn from a "pool" kills another resource, warserver randomly assigns that kill to one of the AT belonging to the pool.
    • Optimization - the war server supply queue process has been optimized.
    • Added 3 faction support for War is over screen
    • Updated Battle report to support 3 factions in leaderboards

    • Added option to auto repair vehicle ammo when repairing all ammo
    • Assault teams moving into a battle where they are not welcome (third faction) automatically moves back
    • The warmap has been changed a lot, almost to black and white, in order to bring out elements better.
    • Added outline to supplylines.
    • Added a 'Strategic color scheme' to supplement the 'Friend or Foe color scheme'.
The toggle button is visible next to the Major City overview on the campaign map, and on every action game map in the flash client. The toggle changes the setting globally, and the settings are saved across sessions.
    • Generals may now retreat assault teams from battle, using the retreat button in assault team control in the right side of the campaign map.
    • Fixed the chat and notification tray buttons so they match the others in size and sharpness.
    • Added a notification for when users receive refunds.
    • The old mission/battlefield action map view has been ditched, and the one from the battlereport with capture points and attack lines is used instead. Currently, only the access points have their status set, and the rest of the points show up as neutral.
    • Fog of war visibility now shows for Assault Teams stationary on supplylines (mostly when they're in a skirmish)
    • Generally fixed up UI to accommodate three factions.
    • Multimarkers now have a small indicator for the amount of troops present. It uses the symbols from https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/NATO_Mili ... Unit_sizes and is only based on the number of soldiers present multiplied by 10 - vehicles are not taken into account.
    • Assault teams of different factions moving onto the same supply line now creates a skirmish on the supply line. They are placed into different stacks on their opposite sides of the skirmish.
Assault teams from the third faction cannot move onto the supply line while the skimish is going on
    • Multimarkers should only ever contain assault teams of a single faction.
    • The resources of assault teams are now pooled together in an overview shown when a multimarker is clicked.

In a 3 faction match the defender gets a spawn delay boost while they control all the objectives
The defender can be depleted, kicked out, while the two attackers are still battling for objectives
Minimum state to start battle => (6 vs 6 vs 6) or (9 vs 9)
Max difference in players=> 2 between defender to largest attacker
    • Reinforcements now spawn from the closest Major City (unless it's blocked)
