I think that there are many cities that have need of a siege engine and opening those that are surrounded by water will help the overall population tremendously.

Update: GM Luna said in global chat that being able to siege and blockade from water squares IS an intended effect of this release.  She does not know what the combat characteristics of water squares are.

Claiming sov on water is a nice tweak.

But being able to siege and blockade from the water has a massive impact on city placement, and on the viability of island cities.

Thanks guys, awesome stuff!

Yeah, shame that with lochs. Any chance of seeding small (one square) lakes (lakelets?) with food SOV? Would be cool to have the couple lakes near me a bit more useful than just looking pretty.

It is, after all, a lake, water, and well, currently they are unable to be SOV'd. Just would be nice to allow the whole world provide something useful. Of course, I don't know what you'd do with a volcano, or geyser though, unless somehow we gain some sort of geothermal tech in the future. Would be an interesting twist, no?

But really... All bodies of water should be 'fishable' for food. Just my vote. Well done on the rest of it though! Can't wait to get that research done and start claiming "my river". Good work guys.

There is a work around:

Just change the URL manually:

use this to send the army:  http://elgea.illyriad.co.uk/#/Military/Orders/0/0

and this to claim the sov:  http://elgea.illyriad.co.uk/#/Town/ClaimSovereignty/0/0

Change the 0's at the end to reflect the square your're wanting to claim sov on.
