Evony Language Thread & Scout Changes

Sunday, August 16th, 2009

Interestingly enough, the Evony forum has opened two beta language threads for players who do not speak the primary language (English). This means that there will now be more aid for those who speak French and Spanish (I’m sure more will be added as time continues).

Spanish Thread
French Thread

Evony is now more intent on the Scout Changes, and look to implement it a little later on:

“To help balance the upcoming change that will make it more difficult for players to gain information on other player’s cities, we are planning to make a change to scouting that will reduce one of the random elements that can hurt scout chances.

Currently, there is a small chance that scouts will fight all of the cities defenders on scouting missions, instead of just their scouts. We plan to change this, so that scouts will only fight other scouts on these missions. This will make scouting missions more likely to succeed and reduce what has been a source of frustration for some players.

We want scouts to be useful tools for gathering information and preventing other players from gathering information. We think this change is right in line with this philosophy.”

Evony Beacon Tower

Friday, July 31st, 2009

The beacon tower is vital building to any player who wants to fight battles. The higher level your beacon tower is, the better chance you have of knowing exactly who is attacking you with what military force, and what your targets’ defenses are. This is a warning building to give you time to prepare for your fight and it contributes to information on your opponents’ cities.

Evony Valleys

Friday, May 29th, 2009

This is a very basic article with information about Evony “valleys”.

A valley is the generic term that consists of Flats, Forests, Lakes, Swamps, Hills, Deserts, and Grasslands. So yes, a flat is a valley.

A flat is an area of land that you may attack and if successful, take for your own. The purpose of a flat is to build more cities. When somebody constructs a city, and abandons it, the barbarian city level is that of the flat when he/she conquered it.

A forest is an area of land which has many trees and shrubbery. You may attack and if successful, takes for your own. Forests are extremely useful, because they increase lumber production. The higher level the forest is, the higher percent increase you will receive upon conquering.

A lake is an area of land that you may attack and if successful, take for your own. Lakes are used to increase food production, and are a higher percent increase than grasslands. A higher level of the lake means a higher increase in food production.

A swamp is an area of land that you may attack and if successful, take for your own. Swamps are also used to increase food production. A higher level swamp results in a higher increase in food production.

A hill is an area of land that you may attack and if successful, take for your own. Hills are the only valley that is used to increase iron production. A higher level hill means a higher increase in iron production.

A desert is an area of land that you may attack and if successful, take for your own. Deserts are also the only valley used to increase stone production. A higher level desert means a higher increase in stone production.

A grassland is an area of land that you may attack and if successful, take for your own. Grasslands are used to increase food production. A higher level grassland results in a higher increase in food production.

Remember, your valleys can be re-conquered by other players, so be sure to defend them well.
