AoT has just been updated to v1.0.6.
The only change is that the XML setting "Abandoned Territories May Be Taken Over Immediately" is now set to true. This should allow attackers that attack a territory but fails to win within the limited 5 battle rounds, to get the territory instantly if they continue fighting and win in another players turn in that same round. So no more waiting for the next round and no need to walk in to the already won territory to capture it.
This setting was set to false before, as I experienced a lot for java errors with the setting at true. But right now I can’t seem to reproduce the errors (using TripleA 126.96.36.199.3627), so I feel it is safe to revert to the old instant capture style.
I hope that players will post here if they experience any game breakdown java errors.
