COMBAT WEATHER TYPES (25 features)

The combat update includes a new weather system which gives each battle one of many possible weathers. These weathers do a number of things, they can allow for certain weather events to take place that can help or hinder the fighters. They can also allow for bonuses or penalties to be applied to certain independent races, for example Lightning Trolls would be much stronger during a storm, but Day Elves would be weaker fighting under a crescent moon. These weather buffs also affect your own troops if they belong to any of those races.
