Raids!

Today we have fully launched the Raids System. Let us explain how it all works!

Solo Raids

Solo raids, are daily events where you can defeat the monster on your own. You do not lose any troops attacking these beast and the reward is fixed to what is presented on the screen. 

The strength of the monster increased with age of the realm and your size on the realm. More rare raids are also a bit more difficult to complete

Clan Raids

Clan raids are weekly clan events. They are designed for the entire clan to participate in. Unlike solo raids, attacking these monsters costs you troops.

Your reward depends on how much damage you do to the monster. The slider, allows you to explore the rewards per damage done.

Every member of a clan raid has their own set damage contribution. This depends on their size, and the size of the clan. Doing more damage than you're supposed to yields less and less rewards, and thus becomes more costly, so beware. The slider defaults to the ideal percent, and your reward "sweet spot"

We determine "the sweet spot" based on your size, compared to clan size. The larger you are in the clan, the more HP damage you are required to make in order to achieve your reward sweet spot. 

Note that if you do significantly more HP damage than what you "should", you will be losing more troops than you will get in the reward. 

As a clan, you will get the maximum reward, if everyone participates up to "their sweet spot" 

Strength of the monster depends on the number of players in the clan. Reward also depends on the number of players in the clan. Such that, no mater the size of the clan, every clan member, in every clan, is capable to receive the same reward if they participate properly (ie, up to their sweet spot)

Only clans with at least 4 members will get clan raids. 

FAQ

Q: What happens when a raid expires?

Any raid that expires but is not beaten, is practically over - you cannot send more troops at it, and you cannot collect rewards. However, any outgoing troops will still land and do damage, and if beaten, reward can be collected 

Clan Raids and new realms

Hello Realm of Empires players!


Raids

We are pleased to announce a brand new feature - Clan and Solo Raids.

Raids are basically a PvE system where you can commit your troops to fight a monster of some kind.

In case of clan raids, all clan members are encouraged to participate, resulting in rich loot for everyone

This allows clan members hesitant to engage in PvP play, to still participate and benefit the clan.

The more active the clan members are, the more the entire clan will benefit

2 New Veteran Realms

Raids will debut on two new veteran realms.

Based on your feedback and our research of the summer realms, we are pleased to announce two new realms for September:

FOR PLAYERS WITH MORE TIME: 
Sep 14 - No morale, large realm.

FOR PLAYERS WITH LESS TIME:
Sep 29 - New morale design, large realm

Based on your feedback, you either like morale or do not like it. Hence two parallel realms, different mostly on morale.

Also, based on your feedback, we are adjusting the morale to be more friendly to players with less time. Details to come but we are adjusting parameters such as how it effects farming, vs real battles, bonuses and penalties.

We hope you will enjoy the new feature and realms!


Raids! Sneak Peek ...

Hail Lords and Ladies!


Raids are small missions you can undertake (like raiding a cave infested by bandits), and get rewards that will help you expand your empire.

You will be able to do private / solo missions, just for you, clan missions ( those kick in day 7 of the realm) where everyone can participate and get a portion of the loot depending on their participation, as well as realm wide missions where clans and individuals can compete.

First few hours since your registration on a realm, will give you easy to beat, very frequent raids, but with that, comes smaller reward per raid. After that, you will get daily raids that are giving better rewards.

Day 7 of the realm, you will start to get clan raids. In clan raids, the more people that participate, the better very all reward for the clan. 

This functionality is still in its Beta release, and parameters like raid frequency, monster HP, rewards etc might change without notice.

What had changed? A guide for veterans - Clan Claim System

Realm of Empires started in 2008. We regularly have veterans coming back after years of absence. Sometimes they have a hard time navigating through all the changes that were made over the years. We've compiled a guide designed to help veterans get up to speed on all the change.
In this post: Clan Claim SystemSee here for full summary of change.


Clan Claim System

Claiming of villages was typically done via forums or on chat. A new system allows you to simply claim villages right from the map


You can then see your claim, and other's claims right on the map

Lots of configuration options are available to clan leaders

Target System - easy calling for support or attack assignment 

We wanted to simply how you ask for support from your clan mates and allies. Until recently, you had to manually message players asking for help. 

Now, you can simply create "Calls for support" and your clanmates and allies will be able to see where they need to send support, and by when. 


Likewise with organizing offensive operations. Assigning targets was tedious manual work via mail or chat. Now you can setup a "Call for attack" on a village and either allow clanmates to claim them or even assign targets to specific people 


This system went through a number of changes since it was released in its Alpha version to Beta version. Click those links for details and a how-to
