Battle Point Villages allow you to collect troops and resources on your islands to progress your empire. There are 6 available ruins for you to take on an island (you do not start with any). Once you buy the ruin with battle points it will turn into a Battle Point Village and you will be able to collect resources and different types of troops.
Summary of the New System
With the new battle point villages and the bandits camp we want to improve the early game phase in order to keep more players in the game and motivate them to come back on the following days. To achieve this we simplified the usability of the old farming villages, and reduced their complexity. We want to offer you more possibilities to fight during the first days on a new world. As a result, we have integrated a new feature on the island of your first city, the Bandits Camp. It will contain a total of 100 PvE fights. As a new player it’s important to perform several PvE fights in order to understand how the battle system works, and to figure out the pros and cons of the different units. This will allow you to be better prepared as your beginner's protection wears off.

Obtaining Battle Point Villages
In order to obtain a battle point village you will need to spend your battle points. Once you have the required battle points available, you can click on the ruin and build your village. After clicking the build button the village will immediately be built to level 1.
Below is a table with the associated costs:
|Number of Villages||Cost (in battle points)|
Once you unlock your sixth village the cost to build a village will be 100 battle points. This number will not reset and counts for all of your cities.
|Not In Your Possession
|In Your Possession
(ready to farm)
|In Your Possession
(cooldown after collection)
|In Your Possession
(cooldown after upgrading)
Obtaining Troops and Resources
Since you will only be able to obtain 6 villages instead of 8 like the old system, we have increased the amount of resources by 25%. Each time you demand resources it is subtracted from the daily total (which is dependent on the level of the village). Additionally, if you demand resources you will not be able to demand troops until the cool down period has ended.
Total Daily Limit
|Village level||Old Daily Limit||New Daily Limit|
|New values are multiplied by world speed.|
You will have several different collection options to choose from, ranging from 5 minutes to 8 hours. In order to unlock the different options you will need to upgrade your warehouse accordingly:
The following options are available to you once you have the appropriate warehouse level:
|Village Level||5 Minute Cool Down||20 Minute Cool Down||90 Minute Cool Down||4 Hour Cool Down|
Additionally you will have the option to research the technology "Villagers Loyalty" to unlock a different set of times:
|Village Level||10 Minute Cool Down||40 Minute Cool Down||3 Hour Cool Down||8 Hour Cool Down|
Collecting units no longer counts against the daily limit when collecting from battle point villages. They do, however, require a cool down just like when you are collecting resources. Below is a table with the respective values, which are affected by world speed:
The values are relative to game speed (formula: game speed*unit number, rounded down)
In order to unlock the above units you will need to increase your farm level. Each unit option requires a minimum farm level before you will be able to collect that unit.
|1||Farm level 5|
|2||Farm level 7|
|3||Farm level 10|
|4||Farm level 15|
You will be able to trade with battle point villages with a maximum ratio of 1.25. The minimum amount of resources that you are able to trade is 100 and the maximum is 3000.
Once you trade with a battle point village the ratio will drop. Over time it will recover slowly at a rate of .02 per hour * world speed.
It is now possible to cycle through your battle point villages to farm resources. You can do so by clicking the arrows pictured above.
With the introduction of Battle Point Villages there is a new technology available Villagers' Loyalty that will increase the amount of resources that you obtain by 115%.
