New Global Map, New Alliances!
The latest season of the Global Map is quickly approaching, and we're making some cool new additions to our Alliance system from Season 10! Here are a few tidbits to get you up to speed.
Season 11 of the Global Map will run Apr. 3-May 20, 16:00–20:00 PT | 18:00–22:00 CT | 19:00–23:00 ET.
The Alliance system did well in Season 10, and we continue to further polish it.
Season 10 proved the Alliance mechanics are entertaining. Thanks to Alliances, the strongest clans were able to hold dozens of provinces and substitute for their allies by having their battles transferred to them, popping up in the right place at the right time. It became apparent that the system should be somehow limited but at the same time given more strategic depth and flexibility. Besides that, Influence as a Global Map currency should be supplemented with new possibilities to expand on the strategic component of the game.
For this, Alliances have been revised in Season 11: the maximum number of Minor Powers has been increased to 5, and a clan's strategic actions have been limited with the help of a new feature — Administration Points.
Administration Points (AP) are a new resource that clans purchase using Influence and invest in strategic capabilities: controlling provinces, allying with Minor Powers, and transferring battles.
In view of the major changes in season regulations, all Alliances created in Season 10 will be disbanded, and all clans will receive 1,500 Influence and 6 Administration Points. Be careful when spending them since your income may diminish due to oversights in action planning.
Main Features of Season 11
The Global Map will expand and contain areas without income, allowing weaker Clans to acquaint themselves with the Global Map gameplay.
The cost of Divisions will increase dynamically, with each subsequent Division requiring more Influence.
The Alliance mechanics introduced in the Anniversary Season will be supplemented with new features that affect the Clan's strategic capabilities, including the ability to transfer battles.
Convoys will operate differently at the start of the season. Gold received by Convoy recipients or ransackers will affect Victory Points in the seasonal rating.
1. Administration Points
A new Clan resource emerges in Season 11 that can be purchased using Influence and invested in the strategic capabilities of Clans and Alliances.
Administration Points can be used for controlling provinces, allying with Minor Powers, and transferring battles.
Each Clan is provided with 6 Administration Points at the start of the season with additional Administration Points purchasable using Influence.
Clans will get a history of Alliances that they were a part of.
Receiving income from a large number of provinces will also change—now, if a clan owns more than 10 provinces, gold will be added to its Treasury from the 10 provinces providing the smallest income.
The special Treasury where taxes are accumulated to be dispatched with convoys is limited to 20,000 gold and 20,000 Influence.
The maximum number of clan Administration Points is 16.
Receiving and Investing Administration Points
|Deducts AP:||Adds AP:|
|Minor Powers||When gaining a new Minor Power, Major Powers lose Administration Points.||When losing a Minor Power, Major Powers receive Administration Points.|
|Transferring battles||When transferring battles to an ally, clans have to invest Administration Points.||Administration Points are reimbursed to clans if an ally declines to substitute for them in battles.
Administration Points are reimbursed to clans after 24 turns have passed since they transferred their battles.
|Provinces||When clans receive a province, Administration Points are deducted.||When Clans lose a province, Administration Points are reimbursed.|
|Minor Power pact||2|

2. Changes in Taxation
Like Season 10, a certain percentage of all Clan income from the Global Map (Gold and Influence) is accumulated by Minor Powers as taxes. Upon reaching a certain amount of currency, it's possible to dispatch a convoy to the Major Power.
In Season 11, the special Treasury where taxes are accumulated is limited by 20,000 units for both Gold and Influence. If convoys aren't dispatched, all resources deposited into an already full Treasury will be lost.
3. Dynamic Increase of Division Cost
To make the element of strategy more pronounced, each new Division will require more Influence. At the same time, the system does not consider whether the existing Divisions were purchased using Influence or received for free.
For example: say a Clan has won four Divisions in landing tournaments and two Divisions they organized - a total of six Divisions. When purchasing the seventh Divisions, the Clan needs to spend 2,000 Influence.
|Division (by count):||Influence Cost:|
