List Of All Awards
The following is a list of all of the Awards available in Grepolis. As you can see, there are a few requirements which are still unknown, so if you figure them out please post details in the forum.
The following medals are awarded when you achieve specific requirements. Unlike daily awards, you'll still receive the medal even if other players have achieved more than you. As your level of achievement for a particular requirement increases over time, you'll get higher "grades" of the award. These awards encourage you to learn about major game features and then to keep using those features in your gameplay.
Even if you are a lousy Grepolis player and fail spectacularly, you'll still be awarded and graded for your EPIC FAIL achievements. Now you can boast about your failures!
The appearance of the award changes based on it's grade:
Usually only the highest grade you've reached will be displayed, although if you reset your account, you get to keep the awards gained prior to the reset, but they are reduced to the lowest grade.
The one exception is the Victim award (which is the highest level of failure possible in Grepolis) as it has only one grade due to its somewhat amusing requirements.
Each of the following awards are handed out once a day to the player who best achieves the awards' requirements. For example, the person who loots the most cities in a day, more than anyone else in the world (server), will get the "Looter of the day" award. However, they only appear once 30 days have passed on a world (non-dependent on speed).
Daily awards look like a tombstone and have the date engraved on them, along with a picture representing the achievement:
You can collect large numbers of these daily awards - each time you're the best on the server for one of the requirements above you'll be awarded with a new tombstone! Note that these only appear 30 days after the World opens (non-dependent on speed).

To recognize the achievements of players in the 1st Annual Grepolympic Games, various awards are available to be won by those lucky enough to place well in the games. The first type of award is based on ranking in the events.
The second type of award is for training your athletes to the best possible condition in order to compete at top form in the events.

Age of Wonders Awards
You can view a Hall of Fame of those alliances which have been awarded the Master of X award in the Hall of Fame
These awards encourage you to gather as many resources as possible, which in turn will allow you to increase the size of your civilisation and army.
These awards encourage you to increase the size of your civilization by:
In order to get more cities, you'll need more Culture.
The purpose of increasing your civilization is to enable you to support a bigger army. If you're doing it just for the points (known as being a "Points whore" or "Sim city player") then enemies will just wipe you off the map as your cities will be easy targets for them to capture!
These awards encourage you to recruit more troops - a bigger army enables you to:
- Defend better against enemy attacks
- Attack and/or capture enemy cities
- Loot more resources from farms and enemies
- Gain more battle points during wars
These awards encourage you to spy on other players. Your espionage activities reveal detailed information about your enemies, including:
- The number and type of troops stationed in their city
- The amount of resources they have in their warehouse
- The levels of all their buildings
Armed with this information, you can better plan your attacks and have a better idea of what to expect should the enemy attack you first.
|Medal||Title||Description||Level I||Level II||Level III||Level IV|
|Spy||Complete spy missions||5 Missions||50 Missions||500 Missions||5000 Missions|
|Double Agent||Fail spy missions||5 Missions||50 Missions||500 Missions||5000 Missions|
These awards encourage you to wage war - both defending your own villages and alliance villages, and to attack enemy villages.
These awards are only available on "speed worlds" (worlds where everything happens at an accelerated rate)...
Note: Normal worlds also have a "Ruler of the World" award, for more information see Civilization Size.
Choosing which awards to display
By default, when you receive an award only you will see it. If you want other players to see your awards, you need to edit your award settings.
To do this, go in to your Profile and choose the Awards section as shown below:
You can change the default setting for each server that you have an account shown on - select the server from the first drop down, then select what should happen when you receive new awards on that server:
- Only visible to you -- New awards are only shown to you, nobody else can see them
- Visible to the alliance -- New awards are made visible to members of your alliance
- Note: It's not clear how "visible to alliance" works - for example, is it just the alliance you're in or does it also include pact alliances (allies and NAPs)? It's also unclear as to whether your alliance on other servers can see awards that aren't from that server.
- Visible to everyone -- New awards are made visible to all Grepolis players (on all servers)
For example, if you select the "Visible to everyone" setting, then new awards will automatically be added to the "Visible to everyone" column. You're existing awards will not be updated, you'll have to move them manually if you want to change who can see them.
Regardless of the default settings, you can still manually rearrange your awards between the three columns by dragging them to a different column.
Depending on which column the award is in, other players will be able to see it in a bar at the bottom of your user profile...
Award Bar (viewing other player's awards)
To see the rewards received by a player, look on their user profile page and you'll see the award bar at the bottom:
As shown above, blue banners indicate which World (server) the players were awarded on. Players can have accounts on multiple servers so it's not uncommon to see several worlds (and their associated awards) listed.
Prolific players will have a big list of awards that scroll off the edge of the screen - you can drag the award bar with the mouse to scroll it and see more awards.
Hovering over an award will display more information about the award such as it's title and what was required to achieve it.
If no awards are shown then it's likely that the player has chosen not to make their awards publicly visible.
Why would I choose not to show my awards to everyone?
Awards can possibly give away sensitive information about your account on a server - for example, do you want opponents to know that you regularly fail espionage (spying) missions or that you've recruited lots of mythical units?
Remember that you'll always get a notice when you receive a new reward so you can manually override the display of that award fairly soon after you get it. You might still choose to add all awards to the "Visible to everyone" or "Visible to the alliance" columns, and then remove any sensitive awards after you get the notice about receiving them.
How do I show my awards in forum topics and other places?
You can insert your awards in a forum topic, your profile text, in-game messages and various other places using the "Award" button as shown below:
You can choose to display all your awards, or just awards from a specific server, or even a specific award. Quite why you'd want to do this I have no idea, but hey, its still pretty cool!
The BB Codes (formatting markup used in the in-game forums) can be pasted in to your profile, notepad and anywhere else that accepts BBCode within the game.
