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.

Obtaining Troops and Resources

BPV accept units.png

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

1 Bpv level1.png 6250 2500

New values are multiplied by world speed.

Collecting Resources

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:

Option Warehouse Level
1 1
2 5
3 7
4 10

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:

Collecting Units

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:

Village Level Swordsmen Slingers Archers Hoplites
1 Bpv level1.png 2.43 2.25 2.25 1.95
2 Bpv level2.png 2.87 2.65 2.65 2.29
3 Bpv level3.png 3.27 3.02 3.02 2.61
4 Bpv level4.png 3.62 3.34 3.34 2.89
5 Bpv level5.png 4.05 3.74 3.74 3.24
6 Bpv level6.png 4.48 4.14 4.14 3.59
The cooldown time for collecting all types of units is 3 hours.
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.

Option Requirement
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.

Village Cycling
