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


Experience the Olympic Games of ancient Greece through Grepolympia. There are four different disciplines taking place over 3 days each from 25th October to 7th November 2016. With each discipline, 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 alliances will win unique effects at the end of each discipline. 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.

For each discipline, 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 100 and 200 gold respectively. These slots remain active throughout all disciplines. The number of units that can be trained in each slot is limited, and this results in the training time being 1.5 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 12 hours. This allows you to gain more training points than would be normal. This effect carries over to the next discipline if started towards the end of the discipline's time frame.

  • 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).


There are 3 skills for each discipline 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, Intuition, Concentration Technique, Momentum, Throwing Power Control, Horsepower, Strength
  • Note: As there is a different skill set for each discipline, the training points gained from each discipline will reset after the completion of the discipline.

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.


Your athlete can enter into a competition once every 12 hours. If you wish to use gold you can enter as often as you like, however, entry costs will increase with each entry. 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.

80 2700+ m 90+ pts 70+ m 5000+ m


The player ranking is based on the athlete's best result from the competitions, so each player will appear only once in the ranking.

For the alliance ranking, the results from the competitions for the ten best athletes of an alliance will be considered, and an average value will be calculated. In case there are less than 10 alliance members taking part in a discipline, each missing member will account for "0" points in the calculations.


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

Player Rewards

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

Alliance Rewards

At the end of each discipline, the top 10 alliances will receive an 'effect' as a reward. This effect is tied to membership within the alliance. When joining or leaving the alliance, the effect is thus activated or deactivated respectively. The strength, or intensity, of this effect will depend on where the alliance places in the rankings. Duration: 14 Days from the enactment of the reward.
