Core cities

Cores are the native cities of a country.
Core cities can be lost in battles, when the war is over:

  • Lost core cities lose “Core” status if not taken back in 4 months time. When lost, the city gets Flagged by the loosing country. If city is re-occupied in these 4 months by a country having Core on it, the timer resets.
  • If a city without “Core” status is conquered it takes 3 continuous months to become a “Core” City.

Core of original country in Capital is never lost.


Flagged cities

Flagged are those cities that had been once a core but have been lost by signing a “Give up core” PT or if not taken back for 4 months time.
War Justification (WJ) Points of one country against another
Amount of Decrease and Increase is calculated every day, at midnight.


Decrease:

  • WJ on a country decreases with 3 points every day by default
  • Having a NAP means 5 points decrease every day
  • Having an Alliance means 10 points decrease every day
  • Starting or joining a war costs WJ points


Increase:

  • Depending on DEFCON level, 0-7 points daily increase
  • Depending on War propaganda level, 0-3 points daily increase
  • Owning cores of foreign country gives +1 WJ/day/core to the foreign country
  • Being at war gives daily +1 WJ to all neighbouring countries
  • Caught/false flag spy/terrorist activities raise WJ based on their success


DEFCON

DEFCON determines how hard soldiers can fight but also increases threat to other countries.
Can be set by the President.


Setting DEFCON levels takes time:
(original DEFCON lvl - new DEFCON lvl)*6 hours when decreasing
(new DEFCON lvl - original DEFCON lvl)*4 for increasing


DEFCON level bonuses:

  • Level 1: 125% attack power for soldiers, 7 WJ per day to neighbouring countries, 4 WJ per day to other countries
  • Level 2: 100% attack power for soldiers, 5 WJ per day to neighbouring countries, 3 WJ per day to other countries
  • Level 3: 80% attack power for soldiers, 3 WJ per day to neighbouring countries, 2 WJ per day to other countries
  • Level 4: 60% attack power for soldiers, 1 WJ per day to neighbouring countries, 1 WJ per day to other countries
  • Level 5: 50% attack power for soldiers, 0 WJ per day to neighbouring countries, 0 WJ per day to other countries


War propaganda

Has 4 levels that can be set by President.

  • Level 0: no propaganda
  • Level 1: Cost (Total population/1000) gold/day effect + 1 WJ on target country/day
  • Level 2: Cost (Total population/500) gold/day effect + 3 WJ on target country/day
  • Level 3: Cost (Total population/200) gold/day effect + 5 WJ on target country/day

Peace Treaty (PT)

PT can be offered by any of the two War Leader Presidents at any time in the war
PT needs to be accepted by both presidents to take effect (only exception is when all Cities of a country are occupied: in this case an offer of the President of the victorious side is accepted automatically (Dictate))
In Dictate only one kind of demand can be made
Once a country signed a PT, it cannot re-enter the same war


Options available for a PT:

  • Status quo ante basis: everything remains unchanged just like it was before starting the war
  • Full Annexation: only available if all cities of target country are under occupation
  • Demand tribute: one time money amount paid (max. is equal to owned amount by enemy country treasury(/10 for gold))
  • Demand daily tribute: daily GOLD amount paid (not available in Dictate)
  • Give up Cores: giving up "Core" status on foreign owned Cities

Note: They become "Flagged" status.

  • Hand over Cities (can be only offered on cities that are currently occupied by PT initiator country)

(Note that conquering cities this way will result in other countries getting the according WJ)

  • Give up Alliance/NAP/MMPP: on acceptance alliance/NAP/MPP will be dissolved
  • Sign NAP: NAP between the two countries
  • Retake Cores: Special option available only with "Reconquest" CB and only if one or more Core cities owned by the foreign country are conquered
  • Release country: Special option available only with "Liberation" CB. Country is released as sovereign state, victorious side chooses the cities to be released (must be cores of that country)

(Note: Winner country gets an Alliance with released Country for free)


Rewards for conquest

Independent of chosen Peace Treaties, the following reward is received for every conquered City:

  • 10% of enemy country treasury (all currencies, Gold, Euro) divided by number of enemy country Regions at the beginning of the war (this means that with Full Annexation it will be exactly 10%)
  • A country can lose maximum 10% of it’s treasury (of a currency) in a war:
    50% of conquest reward money goes to winner countries treasury 
    50% of conquest reward money goes to War Fund and will be distributed accordingly 
    

Revolt Risk (aRW)

Owned and occupied cities have a specific revolt risk that determines auto-Resistance Wars (aRW) starting.
Revolt risk is newly calculated every day for each city.
Resistance wars are started randomly between 10:00 - 20:00.
Attack power for (auto-)resistance soldiers is always 100%.


Minimum revolt risk is 1%, maximum is 100% (except for Core).
Base revolt risk on all cities is 1%.
Core city maximum revolt risk is 5%.


Modifiers:

  • none-core: +5%
  • newly occupied (within 1 month): +10%
  • newly occupied (between 1-2 month): +5%
  • newly occupied (between 2-3 month): +2%
  • foreign core in city: +2%/core
  • foreign flag in city: +1%/flag
  • at war: +5%
  • own regions currently occupied by enemy: +1%/region for all regions
  • native citizens (active, logged in in last 24 hours) in City: -1%/each hundred citizen
  • foreign (registration country) citizens with core on City (active, logged in in last 24 hours) in City: +0,25%/each hundred citizen

To start it player must be in the City.
The City needs to have a foreign core to be able to start a resistance war.
RW is started by paying the requested amount.
In case more foreign cores are in the same City, starting player has to chose for which Country the RW should start.

Type of RW:

  1. if foreign core country exists: Patriots
  2. if non-existent: Nationalists


Effects if successful:

  • Patriots: Defection of City to foreign Country,
  • Nationalists:

  • Original Capital City: Country will be released with Capital and all non-capital cities currently occupied by country (opening auto-war on new country with Freedom Fight CB)


War Mechanics

Two countries can fight against each other only in one war
Taxes are paid to occupier countries, but with original country tax rates. Occupied status means citizens living in that city are paying taxes to the occupier country, based on the laws of the occupied country as follows:
To close a War a Peace Treaty (PT) is needed
Initiator countries will be the War Leaders (WL) in the current war
When a new country joins a war on any side, War Leadership will be recalculated, country with the most Cities becomes War Leader
Upon closing war, the joined countries CB can be ‘used’ for the WL closing PT
Any participant country can propose a PT with the enemy War Leader at any time in the War
Countries that are not War Leaders can only negotiate a PT with enemy WL, PT between two non-War Leader countries is not possible
In an individual PT between a WL country, and a non-WL country the CBs of the two involved countries are taken into consideration
The War is closed when the two WL countries sign a peace treaty
Annexation can only be demanded by a WL in a PT
Capital City can only be conquered with Annexation
In case all cities of a country become occupied, country has to accept a PT automatically offered by the enemy President no matter of it's content (Dictate)
Once a Country is Annexed the former Capital raw material resources will switch to a random resource
Once the Capital is freed it will switch back to Capital Resources
Once a Country is Annexed citizens will keep their registration citizenship but will become the conqueror nations citizens
Citizenship can only be revoked (=player can be deported) when registration Country is existent or Annexation happened at least 30 days ago
Once a Country is freed the players may get their initial citizenship back
Once a Country is Annexed all company owner of the former country will be offered to migrate their companies to the new country for a cost of company value/10 (paid to winner country's treasury)


Military ranks:

Military ranks are obtained by fighting in battles and add to your damage but only in wars, arena or alien fighting damage is not influenced
Each rank will raise damage output
Changing citizenship will result of starting a new ranking count for the new country
When changing citizenship old ranks will remain but inactive, if citizen returns to country citizenship where he obtained the ranks they will become active again

Battle Mechanics

To attack a City a war must be started first, with a CB explained above
Only those Cities can be attacked which are bordering owned or "occupied" Cities
When in a War, Cities "occupied" by the enemy and belonging to a third country can be attacked too
Every allied country fighting on the same side in the same war can attack an enemy City that they are bordering
An enemy City can only be attacked by one country, cannot be attacked by more countries simultaneously


Costs of attacking a city is 20 gold+total population in City*0,05 gold
Attacking own Core cities is free
Attacking own flagged cities is half as normal


When a WAR is started, in the first 24 hours only the country who started it can initiate an attack on a City
After one side is victorious in a battle it takes the initiative and can start an attack in the current war while the defeated country can't
24 hours after war opening, the attacked country can initiate an attack too in case it has initiative
There are 3 types of outcome in a battle for a City: victory/defeat, heavy victory/defeat, devastating victory/defeat
The time duration of the initiative is based on the victory/defeat type: normal is 1 day, heavy 3 days, devastating 5 days
Initiative is calculated newly after each battle finished
When a country is attacked at the same time by 3 or more countries on it's cities it cannot start an attack
When a City is attacked where a resistance war is already ongoing, attacker country joins the forces of the resistance and does not count into the war as a separate battle
When a Resistance War is started in a city that is already under attack, resistant war fighters join the troops of the attacker country in their battle, no separate resistance war is started
When winning a battle for a foreign City, it becomes "occupied" status


Battles are fought on the actual map of the attacked city
Battles are fought on a grid consisting of hundred squares aligned 10*10
Every square has wall with a minimum "health" of 10000 and maximum of City citizens number multiplied by 1000
Square health can only be attacked when there is no enemy soldier in the actual square. In case there are enemy soldiers they have to be defeated first to be able to attack the wall
Fights against other players do cost only 1 stamina regardless how many stamina is consumed in the actual fight
Fights against the “Wall” do cost normal stamina, one for every hit
Attackers start on the right side of the map, defenders on the left side
Travelling between squares takes 1 minute/square and only owned squares or squares neighboured by owned squares are accessible
After a square is conquered it regains its full "health"
When a soldier is defeated he will be offered the option to rejoin the battle or to leave it
When rejoining the battle soldier start on the starting squares (right for attacker, left for defender)


Battle duration is at least 24 hours (except when it is retreated)
Battles can be retreated in the first 12 hours of the battle and count as normal defeat
After 12 hours ongoing battles cannot be retreated
When the conquered squares owned by attackers are less than 40% of the total squares after the 24 hours end it will be considered a victory for the defending side
When the conquered squares owned by attackers are between 40% and 60% of the total squares after the 24 hours end the battle will continue until it goes either over 60% or under 40%
When the conquered squares owned by attackers are over 60% of the total squares after the 24 hours end (or in extra time) it will be considered a victory for the attacker side and City will become occupied
Victory has three different scales: over 60%: victory; over 75%: heavy victory; over 90%: devastating victory


In case of victory in "occupied" cities by the enemy and belonging to a third country it loses the "occupied" tag (or become occupied by winner if at war with third country too)
Fighting a battle on a third countries occupied city does count as a normal battle in the War
Occupied cities can only be attacked if being at War with occupier


Travelling to battles:


To fight in a battle players have to be in the City where the battle is fought
Battles are accessible by either travelling there or using Teleport Gates
Allied teleport gates are usable in case a country agreement is active
Teleport gates can be obtained from the game through president initiative (but government decision) and are paid by the country: price - 100 gold
Placing cost for a Teleport Gate in the Capital is 60 gold
When a city is conquered, Teleport Gate is demolished
In cities with demolished teleport gates it costs only 25% of the original costs to repair the teleport gate
Players who use Teleport Gates can only travel back with teleport to the original City, from where he left


Gold Rewards for fighting

50 % of the costs of opening a War/Battle go to Game Fund
50 % of the costs of opening a War/Battle go to War/Battle Fund


After the War/Battle is finished the War/Battle Fund is distributed between the TOP 10 Fighters of the winning side as follows (losers get nothing):

  • Place 1: 28%
  • Place 2: 18%
  • Place 3: 12%
  • Place 4: 9%
  • Place 5: 8%
  • Place 6: 7%
  • Place 7: 6%
  • Place 8: 5%
  • Place 9: 4%
  • Place 10: 3%


Each side of the War/Battle can be motivated. This is done by donating gold to a separate War/Battle Fund.
Donation can be done by countries or individuals.


Separate Fund distribution is as follows:

  • Winning side separate Fund is added fully to War/Battle Fund and distributed according to the rules
  • Losing side separate Fund is distributed as follows:
    10% is added to War/Battle Fund
    10% is added to Game Fund
    80% is sent back to the country which received the donation
