The What: We will be adding new hired squad only slots that will be visible and accessible from "Squad => Hired Squad Members". We plan to add 20 slots spread out over 150 levels. We currently have 2 hired squad types, Striker and Defender. We plan on adding +3 more types in the short term with different abilities and/or upgrades. 1 @ level 150 2 @ level 300 3 @ level 450 4 @ level 600 5 @ level 750 6 @ level 900 7 @ level 1050 8 @ level 1200 9 @ level 1350 10 @ level 1500 11 @ level 1650 12 @ level 1800 13 @ level 1950 14 @ level 2100 15 @ level 2250 16 @ level 2400 17 @ level 2550 18 @ level 2700 19 @ level 2850 20 @ level 3000 The Why: We have a lot of items that can be collected in ZS but with a top squad capped at 20, a player only needs a total of 60 items. Adding another 20 hired squad slots will 2x the number of items that can be brought into battle. Adding to hired squad instead of top squad was desired as to not increase the number of friends required to play which is a big differentiation for ZS versus our other games. Since initial release, we had always planned on offering different hired squad types, opening up hired squad only slots now gives us the ability to add some new types with new powers Ability to continue to grow in strength beyond the 20 squad members as players level The When: We plan on introducing this feature later this month (February).
