Continent Domination has arrived, adding a new twist to the current gameplay and requiring strategic plotting and planning to overcome all the obstacles in your path.
The goal of Continent Domination is to control all 48 Territories on the map. Each of the top 24 Alliances in the Kingdom start with one territory. The battle rages over 3 rounds, with each round lasting 1.5 hours. If all Territories are claimed by one Alliance prior to the end of Round 3, the battle is over.
Prior to the beginning of the Domination rounds, players must enlist their troops for battle. You will automatically be enlisted in your current Alliance, unless you are not part of the top 24 in the Kingdom. Enlistment must be complete before the end of Round 1, or you will be forced to sit on the sidelines and spectate!
Upon entering the Continent Domination area, you will be prompted immediately to set troops for battle. Troop amounts ranging from 200k -50,000,000 may be enlisted. Be aware that these troops are not available for battle on the main map until the end of each round of the Continent Domination period. You must reset troops prior to each round. Use higher-tier troops for maximum efficiency in battle.
Tip: If you enter the Domination screen and cancel [X] out of the “Set Troops” menu before setting your troops, you will see this screen.
Do not panic! Simply force-close the app and restart. You have to set the troops at the loading screen to enter with your Alliance.
Once the timer begins, R4/R5 must declare war on an adjacent Territory. Three War Declarations are given to each Empire. They recharge every 15 minutes, so choose your timing carefully. Additional Declarations can be purchased with gold. Subordinated R5s have 1 Declaration, which can only be used by the R5.
The choice of a Territory to declare war upon is the most strategic part of this event. Players can see all of the Territories on the map, as well as who controls what.
Empires must be prepared to attack and defend, as multiple battles can be waged at once. Be smart about this! Each player is given 10 War Participations a day, with an additional 10 available to be purchased with Gold. However, the price increases each time you purchase one, starting at 10k Gold and escalating with each concurrent purchase.
On the lower right corner of the screen, you will see the War Status icon. This lists all current Attack and Defend battles happening at a given moment. If there are multiple battles, work with your Alliance to strategically assign players to each battle.
Empire Buffs are granted to R4 members or above (three times a day, for free). These Buffs increase Attack, Defense and HP. These roll randomly, much like Town Mode Buffs. Purchase additional Buff rolls with gold.
Clicking on the desired battle will take you to the troop set-up screen, where you will choose the troops to participate. There is a 5-minute window to join each battle, and battles last up to 20 minutes.
Once the battle begins, it is critical to obtain control of the Sanctuary, as it gives a significant attack buff. The Sanctuary is located in the center of the map, in a similar location to where the Capital is in the main game. Many maps have multiple Sanctuaries which can stack.
There are two different ways to conquer a Territory. Firstly, knock all of your opponents out of the game. Alternatively, completely destroy the opposing team’s Alliance City (attacking the city is available 2 minutes after the match starts). Note that Advanced Ports and Speed-Ups are NOT provided for Continent Domination battles, unlike in Battle Royale and Team Deathmatch.
Troops that die in Continent Domination are automatically revived and returned to your city at the end of the event period. However, revival during the event is also possible at a much lower rate than a normal revive.
If an Alliance loses their last remaining Territory, they will be merged into the winner’s Empire. All players then fight side by side as the battles continue. This offers an opportunity for strategy as well. Do you have sub-alliances or allies? Wrapping into one larger Empire early on (or later in the event) is an opportunity to gather additional players, as well as additional War Declarations.
