Interestingly enough, the Evony forum has opened two beta language threads for players who do not speak the primary language (English). This means that there will now be more aid for those who speak French and Spanish (I’m sure more will be added as time continues).
Evony is now more intent on the Scout Changes, and look to implement it a little later on:
“To help balance the upcoming change that will make it more difficult for players to gain information on other player’s cities, we are planning to make a change to scouting that will reduce one of the random elements that can hurt scout chances.
Currently, there is a small chance that scouts will fight all of the cities defenders on scouting missions, instead of just their scouts. We plan to change this, so that scouts will only fight other scouts on these missions. This will make scouting missions more likely to succeed and reduce what has been a source of frustration for some players.
We want scouts to be useful tools for gathering information and preventing other players from gathering information. We think this change is right in line with this philosophy.”
