As requested from the community, we changed alliance settings so that Emperors and Lords can delete Wonder announcements. Emperors will now also be able to remove the “alliance settings changed” messaging.
Age of Empires: Castle Seige is a rather exceptional game as it connects to the Xbox Live network on all of its versions including iOS. This connectivity allows for cloud saves, crossplay, and the unlocking of Xbox Achievements regardless of which device the user is playing it on.
