Evony Super Moderators

Saturday, September 5th, 2009

On Septemer 3rd, 2009, Evony opened a new forum rank: Super Moderators

Super Moderators are not of a “higher status” than Moderators, but rather only have a few more permissions. Super Moderators have the power to moderate every single forum board as opposed to just a few selective sections.

If you are in doubt, just PM a Super Mod (Purple Name) and they’ll deal with it for you.

Again, Super Mods are not of a higher status than any other Moderator – they just have a little bit more permissions.

The first two Super Moderators for Evony are: Hods and FoxyBunny.

Evony Prestige & Battle Changes

Thursday, August 13th, 2009
Originally stated by Dawnseeker, an Evony liason representative:
“In our efforts to make Evony more balanced, we are considering implementing a change to Prestige to prevent players from gaining Prestige at high rates by bypassing normal progression.

What we will do is cap Prestige at a fixed amount, based on the player’s title:

Civilian…… 100k
Knight……. 200k
Baronet….. 300k
Baron…….. 400k
Viscount…. 500k
Earl………. 700k
Duke……… 800k
Marquis….. 900k
Furstin…… 1,000k
Prinzessin… No Cap

So a civilian won’t be able to go above 100,000 Prestige, a Knight 200k, etc. What do you guys think of this? Do you think its fair? Any better suggestions? We’re listening!

We also intend to make a small change in battle reports. Right now it is easy for players to gain information about cities without scouting, by simply launching an attack. We would like to change this so that if an attacker is defeated in a battle and the defender does not take 10% casualties, the attacker will not receive information on the city, such as the number of troops and towers.

We want to do this so that scouts are valuable and we dont see “warrior scouting.”

Let us know what you think of these ideas! Thanks!”

These are possible changes that will come into play at Evony. If you agree or disagree – there’s still time! Please put your reply in this thread.

RTTH – Prestige Analysis

Monday, June 15th, 2009

After publicly releasing RTTH, we got many requests for more information. I’m going to extend a bit about RTTH and the implications about it.

In the first article, we learned that the Rank, Title, and Town Hall level affects how much prestige you get per completion. Now many people went on to panic, completely regretting promoting themselves. Let’s look at this logically:

Scenario 1:

I have 1 city and I am a Civilian Rank and Civilian Title. I receive 18 prestige for each time I upgrade a cottage to level 5.

Scenario 2:

I have 1 city and I am a Lieutenant Rank and Knight Title. I receive 9 prestige for each time I upgrade a cottage to level 5.

Scenario 3:

I have 2 cities and I am a Lieutenant Rank and Knight Title. I receive about 9 prestige for upgrading a cottage to level 5 in my first town, and I receive about 9 prestige for upgrading a cottage to level 5 in my second town.

Of course, the prestige you get depends on the Town Hall level as well. This is purely an example.

As you can see, Scenario 1 and 3 are more desirable than Scenario 2. This means that it is not bad to promote yourself. It is simply bad to promote yourself at the wrong time. The only reason you should promote yourself, is if you know you have enough support from your other city(cities) to start the next one. Let’s take a look:

Scenario 1:

I have 1 city and I am a Civilian/Civilian. I can construct 1 building at time and research 1 technology at a time. I get roughly double the prestige per completion to that of a Lieutenant/Knight.

Scenario 2:

I have 1 city and I am a Lieutenant/Knight. I can construct 1 building at time and research 1 technology at a time. I get roughly half the prestige per completion to that of a Civilian/Civilian and a Lieutenant/Knight who has 2 cities.

Scenario 3:

I have 2 cities and I am a Lieutenant/Knight. I can construct 2 buildings at a time and research 2 technologies at a time. I get roughly the same prestige total as that of a Civilian/Civilian and double that of a Lieutenant/Knight.

Now, let’s dissect what the above examples:

A person who is a Civilian/Civilian begins to advance in prestige more quickly than that of someone who is a Lieutenant/Knight and has only one city. This is because they both can complete things at about the same time, while the person with the lower Rank and Title gets twice as much prestige. +1 for Civilian/Civilian

A person who is a Lieutenant/Knight and has 1 city begins to fall behind a person who is a Lieutenant/Knight and has 2 cities. This is because they both get the about the same prestige per completion, but the Lieutenant/Knight with 2 cities can complete things twice as fast due to the 2 cities. +1 for Lieutenant/Knight with 2 cities

So what happens when a person who is Civilian/Civilian pits him/herself against a Lieutenant/Knight with 2 cities?

There are two possible outcomes:

The Lieutenant/Knight has a very established 1st city and can fully support both itself and the second city without a problem. The Civilian/Civilian and Lieutenant/Knight will be fairly even, and then the Lieutenant/Knight will begin to pull ahead. This is because although they both are getting roughly the same amount of prestige, the Lieutenant/Knight with 2 cities can start building and researching more things, more quickly. Why? Well, for example, someone who has two academies can research twice as many things. Someone who has two cities could have level 5 construction while the Civilian only has level 3 construction because he/she only has one academy. The person with Lieutenant/Knight begins to pull ahead because all of their constructions are going faster. Due to having two cities, it cancels out the prestige per completion loss. Therefore, the Lieutenant/Knight starts pulling ahead. +1 for Lieutenant/Knight with 2 cities

The Lieutenant/Knight has a poorly established 1st city and can barely support itself, let alone support the second city. The Civilian/Civilian and Lieutenant/Knight will be fairly even, and then the Civilian/Civilian will begin to pull ahead. In theory, the Lieutenant/Knight should be able to stay even with the Civilian/Civilian, except that he/she cannot support the second city. In order to stay with the game, a player has to completely be ready to help his or her next city or both cities will begin to slow down, and thus, slower prestige. +1 for Civilian/Civilian

Wow, what a load to take in. Here’s the breakdown and summary:

– Do not promote yourself, unless you plan on making another city. If you care about prestige, then don’t fool yourself by thinking “I look better if I’m a Baronett”. If you aren’t considering another city, then you’re just hurting yourself.

– If a person wants to make another city while not falling behind in the prestige race, then he/she should be sure he/she is ready to fully support that next city. If he/she is not ready both economically and militarily, he/she will begin to decline in the top players. If in doubt, don’t promote.

– This all comes down to timing/speed and knowing your own strength. If you make the mistake of promoting yourself the moment that you are able to, you are going to regret it. Don’t promote your Rank unless you have enough medals to promote your Title as well and make that next city. A Lieutenant/Knight will have an advantage over a Captain/Knight.

So think about it. Keep your eyes open for another analysis of RTTH. There’s much more to it, and a lot more strategy than you may think!

RTTH – Prestige Building Secret

Saturday, June 13th, 2009

Why am I not getting as much prestige now? Why is my prestige rising slower than it did when I first started?

Many players often wonder what they did wrong. “When I first started, I got 11 prestige just for upgrading a farm to level 4! Now I get 3!”

So what is the secret? What’s the trick? Is Evony scamming us?

The answer to these prestige building questions have not been answered anywhere yet. Are you ready? Read on.

The prestige you gain from constructing buildings, researching technology, and training troops comes from three things. Your Rank, Title, and Town Hall level affects how much prestige you get upon completing a building, research, or troop.

The lower you Rank is, the more prestige you will gain for each completion.

The lower your Title is, the more prestige you will gain for each completion.

The lower your Town Hall level is, the more prestige you will gain for each completion.

Why is this so? Where is your proof?

This is an example of logic and history. In the dark ages and olden times, if a King were to build a few factories, nobody would think he was a “better” (more prestigious) lord. Kings would only become famous if they built a huge castle or defeated a powerful nation in war.

This directly relates to the Rank, Title, and Town Hall level in Evony. To relate Evony to the example above, a King would be a Duke or Prinzessin. People who are have the rank of Prinzessin or Duke should not get prestige for upgrading a barracks to level 5 because they have already established themselves as a powerful person. They should only get prestige for winning a war, or finishing their research of Compass level 10. Now, a player with a rank of Knight will get an unearthly amount of prestige for researching Compass level 10, because that would be an amazing feat for somebody who has established themselves as a “less powerful person”.

How exactly does the Town Hall have anything to do with it?

The Town Hall is a representation of wealth, prosperity, and power. The higher a person’s Town Hall is, the larger his/her castle looks on the Map, and the more economic opportunities arise (resource fields). Don’t forget, you need a certain Town Hall level before you can advance in your Rank and Title. For anyone who had doubts that Town Hall is related to the Title and Rank, your doubts are now put aside.

Here’s a short summary and breakdown of what I have just said.

– The lower your Rank, Title, and Town Hall level is, the more prestige you will gain from completing a building, research, or troop.

– The explanation for this is that people who have higher Ranks, Titles, and Town Halls have given a message to the world that they are already a powerful person. They do not deserve to get as much prestige for the little things they do.

I’m sure many of you have realized the importance of this:

With this information, there is a way to get prestige so efficiently that you outstrip all the other Evony players.

I hereby dub these three factors that determine prestige building as: RTTH

So when your friends or fellow alliance members ask, refer them to this page and simply tell them “RTTH”.

Does this mean I should stay a Civilian my whole life? No it does not.

Does this mean I should never make a second or third city? No it does not.

Does this mean I should never upgrade my Town Hall to higher levels? No it does not.

Why?

Do you want Hods to release a guide on the exact process of gaining efficient prestige on Evony? Do you want to know when you should promote yourself, make another city, and upgrade your Town Hall?

Building a City

Wednesday, May 27th, 2009

This is a short but sweet article about how to make a second city, third city, fourth city, and so forth.

Firstly:

You need 10,000 food, 10,000 lumber, 10,000 stone, 10,000 iron, and 10,000 gold. In addition, you need to own at least one flat and have 250 workers available.

In order to build the X amount of cities, these are the Titles you need:

1st City – Civilian
2nd City – Knight
3rd City – Baronett
4th City – Baron
5th City – Viscount
6th City – Earl
7th City – Marquis
8th City – Duke
9th City – Furstin
10th City – Prinzessin

Please keep in mind that you will need the required Rank, medals, and gold to advance through the Titles.

Secondly:

To actually build your city, you need to click on the flat that you want to build your city at, and click “Build City”. You want the allotted time, and ta-dah! You have your next city!
