As decreed and ordained by Zeus himself: Let the Games begin!

Grepolympia

Experience the Olympic Games of ancient Greece through Grepolympia. There are four different events taking place over a week each from 5th August to 1st September 2013. With each event, you have an athlete that you can train each day and enter into the competitions. The prizes for participation are laurels, and these can be traded in at the shop for additional resources, spells or other effects. The best athletes will win unique effects at the end of each event. In order to be the best and come out on top, you will need to teach your athletes the skills to win through the use of training points.

Training

For each event, you have an athlete that you can train. In order to train him, you need units (land or mythical units) to assist. You can rely on any unit from any city to help with the training, but be warned - Units used for training will be permanently taken from the army.

The Training Grounds offers 2 free training slots, and another 2 can be purchased for 50 gold each, however, these extra slots are only good for the event in which they are active. The number of units that can be trained in each slot is limited, and this results in the training time being 2 hours per slot.

Once you begin training your athlete, you cannot cancel it and you cannot get the units back. Think carefully whether you wish to use that unit. Each unit used will provide training points for your athlete, and each unit provides a different amount.

The table below provides information about each unit and the training points given. You can also use gold to allow your athlete to train 20% more effectively over 24 hours. This allows you to gain more training points than would be normal.

  • The values for training points are relative to the game speed (formula: training points/game speed).
  • The amount of units per training slot is also relative to game speed (formula: units*world speed).

Skills

There are 3 skills for each event which your athlete can learn. Your goal should be to gain as many skill points as quickly as possible and to distribute them amongst the different skills. This is the only way for your athlete to perform better. For every 1000 training points you will receive 1 skill point.

Skill Sets Speed, Strength, Endurance Accuracy, Precision, Concentration Technique, Momentum, Throwing Power Control, Horsepower, Strength
  • Note: As there is a different skill set for each event, the training points gained from each event will reset after the completion of an event.

If the distribution of your skill points is not working, you can reset them for 50 gold. This lets you find the optimum distribution of points to help your athlete reach the top of the table.

Competition

Your athlete can enter into a competition once every 24 hours, however, if you wish to use gold you can enter as often as you like. The outcome of the competition will depend on how many skill points you have allocated during training. You'll have to try your best to find the optimal combination.

Depending on how well your athlete performed in the competition, you will receive laurels as a reward. The laurels can be exchanged in the shop for various items. The table below shows how many laurels your athlete will receive based on their performance.

Ranking

The player ranking is based on the athlete's best result from the competitions, so each player will appear only once in the ranking. In order to create the alliance ranking, the results from the competition for the ten best athletes of an alliance will be considered, and an average value will be calculated.

Rewards

There are two types of rewards - Daily and Weekly

In addition to the rewards a player can receive, there are various awards that can be earned as well during the Games.

Daily Rewards

Depending on the results of the competition, an athlete will earn a certain amount of laurels based on their performance. These laurels can then be exchanged in the shop for items.

Weekly Rewards

At the end of each weekly event, the top 100 athletes will receive an 'effect' as a reward. The strength, or intensity, of this effect will depend on where the athlete places in the rankings. Duration: 7 Days from the enactment of the reward.
