Post subject:  Resources & protection from city attacks

Hello Emporeans!

Many of you asked how the city protection worked and what decides how much resources do you get from the attacked city of another player. So, here is the article to sum it all:



If you manage to win, you always get:

20% of each resource type from the storage
40% of resources from each mine

So, the amount depends on how much resources there really are in the city.

Your city has been attacked. Now the question is - will you get protected to recover?

Whether your city gets protection and for how long it depends on your overall losses.

You are entitled to
  • 1 hour of protection for each lost upkeep worth of 1 % of your maximal upkeep
  • plus, to x hours of protection; x = stolen resouces/ maximal upkeep x 50

...BUT the minimum summary from both sources is two hours to get any protection at all.

E.g., if you lose 3 % of your maximum upkeep 10000 and the attacker steals you 2000 resources , you are entitled to 3 + ((2000/10000) x50) = 3 + 10 = 13 hours of protection.

BUT, there is a limit - a maximum protection time, depending on your hero's strength (player score).

If your player score is...
...less or equal to 20 000, your maximum protection can be up to 3 days long
...between 20 000 and 40 000, your maximum protection length can be up to 2,5 days
...between 40 000 and 80 000, your maximum protection length can be up to 2 days
...over 80 000: maximum protection length can be 1,5 day only.


If you have any more question, just ask us, please! ;)

OK, is the res lost determined as 20% of your max capacity? or 20% of what you have? because, if it is 20% of what you have, this would mean (as an attacker gets20% of res on hand and 40% of res yet to be collected) that you'd always get some protection if the attacker wins. And this is not the case... Why?

Scott, thanks for asking, because of you I had a perfect opportunity to review and update this article. (This mechanics was also changed a little very recently) ;)
So I hope you will forgive me for not answering. ;)
