We have begun migration of most wikis to our new host, Amazon Web Services. All but the top 100 wikis are in read-only mode until the migration is complete. Estimated completion: TBD -- Update: Fri 10/20 11pm UTC - We have encountered some unexpected issues. Our staff is working around the clock to complete this process as quickly as possible. Thank you for your patience.

Eras

Starting with Europe 4, new worlds will not have the Age system of existing worlds. Instead, the Ages will be replaced by Eras. At their core, they function in much the same way, but their characteristics have been improved based on your feedback. While we have kept some of the gameplay-related changes such as faster units, faster Glory rounds, more honour, etc, the less popular Age-change characteristics have been removed from Eras. For example, Houses and factions are no longer reset when a world transitions between Eras and a capital will keep the bonuses of the buildings even if they are deleted.


'Religion' –Offensive Monk abilities will begin unlocking at Rank 10 with Interdiction and end with Excommunication at Rank 20. Interdiction upgrades will also only unlock with each new rank and match your current rank. For example, in order to interdict a Marquis you yourself will need to be at the same rank. Faith Point Cap – Additionally, a rank-based limit on the maximum number of Faith Points a player can accumulate will be implemented. Players’ Faith Point caps will initially be set at 750 and increase at each full rank-up after Rank 8, reaching a maximum of 200,000 points for players ranked Prince and above.

'Voting' – In Eras, any player Rank 4 or above is able to vote and run in parish elections. This has made it easier for dummy accounts to take over entire parishes and even delete parish castles. In any new game world players will need to be at least Rank 8 to participate in elections.

'Combat' –Some changes have been made to PvP mechanics on Era worlds, giving new players increased protection from the more destructive aspects of gameplay. That said these will still be a factor for higher ranked players and relevant for newbies once they rank up.

Game Mechanics New worlds will operate with the following combat mechanics:

  • Players at Rank 8 and below can only be captured and not razed.
  • Increased costs for razing lower-ranked players.
  • Raze is only available to players ranked Prince or above.

'Glory Race' – Based on player feedback on Ages we have created the aforementioned Era system, which will exist in place of Ages on all new worlds and automate transition between Glory Races. While Eras will work similarly to Ages and still feature Glory Races, changes between [Races] will be cleaner thanks to the new automated system. All changes announced in this post will only affect game worlds launched after this point and will not affect existing worlds.
