Effective May 1, 2021, all armies involved in Faction Play combat are limited to 5K XP and one commander. This includes Faction armies as well as the armies sent from opted-in Alliance players. The full rules are as follows:


  • No single army attacking or defending an encampment, blockade, or siege may include more than 5K XP's worth of troops.

  • Players may use an unlimited number of troops to directly attack or raid cities.

  • Players may defend their city from direct attacks using an unlimited amount of troops from that city only.

  • No army that travels to defend an allied city may include more than 5K XP's worth of troops.

  • Cities may send up to 5 separate armies with 5K XP's worth of troops, but cannot combine all 25K XP into one army.

  • Elite divisions and the use of crafted gear is allowed in all combat settings.



This chart shows the XP value for all troop types:



This table illustrates the maximum size per army of troop types:


Troop Type

# of T1

# of T2

Spear

5,000

2,500

Bow

2,500

1,667

Infantry

2,500

1,667

Cavalry

1,667

1,250


Faction Play leaders have deliberated on these new rules based on the following:
  • We want Faction Play combat to be competitive and even, so that sheer army size alone determines outcomes.
  • We want to limit destruction in FvA and FvF combat.
  • We want new players as well as veteran players who don't want to spend a lot of troops the ability to use smaller armies that will still be competitive.
You can read the full rules of engagement in Faction Play here.

We hope these rules will further enhance the Faction Play experience. Thank you!
