    The longterm point event in September will run from the 10th of September - 5th of October. 
    There will be the comeback of an old set, which got slightly reworked. This set will be the "Fortunes of the desert sand" and it will be available in the reward steps of this coming longterm point event. 
    I made this question some days ago in the august 1 thread, no reply, so I copy here:

    I wanted to ask since the set was slightly modified will change what we already have or will remain different the 2 sets?
    the only interesting thing about the new values is this: -30% cooldown time against PNG targets
    this feature is only for robber baron or even for nomads/samurai?

    If the old set remains as it is and keeps the same name as it costed to GGS change at least the name or put different colors to the set as done on other sets? Also because the graphics "waste time" to make the graphics of the offers with cakes or whatever else or the useless look at the level of bonuses but can be purchased at ruby then at least a minimum of commitment to differentiate the sets we have to avoid confusion.

    ~~ We're particularly interested in your reactions and feelings towards the "new" Fortunes of the Desert Sands set and how it plays alongside existing ones of the old set. ~~

    Stats are terrible in comparison to the original one. could you guys have at least renamed it or put a - II - after. quite lazy imo. Rest of the update is meh for me, its a small update, not sure why all 3 were not bundled together and released but either way works i guess.

    Also the announcement thread to discussion embed link takes you to the top of the update rather than here.

    Not sure its a good idea to have this new set with the exact same name as the old set, as the bonuses are different....  may lead to a lot of confusion...

    noticed this new set has only 35CY - not a lot, is it?

    also noticed it has -30% cooldown for NPCs..  not sure if this applies to Nomad and Sams huts.. If it does, those huts have 90 minutes cooldown but if hit with this comm, they'll have 90 x 0.70 = 63 minutes cooldown..

    63 minutes....   nice number..... this way i can click the 1 hour skip one time and the 1 minute skip 3 times...   :(

    could make it 35% cooldown reduction - why not ask the developers to consider this?

    I hope its not for towers only - that would be a very bad scenario.

    that was the case of the Nutcracker comm, and in that case the text mentions "kingdom NPC targets"

    But you may be right and in that case the comm is even more useless (to me) - hope its of any use to other players...

    Apocaliptic scenario would be the old fortunes of the desert sands comms assume the specs of this new one.

    The old set would stay untouched i guess.. We would be very stupid to change that set now.. after a year.

    And the -30% cooldown is not for nomads and sam.. 
    "7 items: -30% attack cooldown against NPC targets (excluding samurai and nomad/Khan camps)"

    Yes, the old set is not being changed
    But WHY it holds the old name and the old graphics???
    what did it cost to change a name and graphics (or only colors)?

    so they already made this same mistake,with another comm, and got a lot of negative feedback about it and now months later, same mistake.
    this is unbelievable!!

    I just found gif about ggs making their decisions with empire

    This seems to be the values of the new Desert Sourceress Com from August 3 Update:

    http://prntscr.com/kluov2

    (it has the equipment pieces at different tech steps, added to that the gems, boni for all 9 pieces, and additionally the hero. Since ranged and melee have a cap of 90 for equipment + gems + boni I have applied that.)

    This is completely different from the original com (teched to just 12):

    http://prntscr.com/klup9w

    Please give the com a different name. Right now all equippment pieces and gems and the hero have both the same picture as well as the exact same name.

    Once we accumulate the pieces for the new commander we will have a very difficult time differentiating it from the old com. And since the new com pieces are junk it's extremely important to be able to tell them apart from the original com. Or there will be the danger of accidentally selling the old com pieces rather than the new junk com pieces.
