The gods have gifted their chosen warriors in Hellas with something truly remarkable: Coalition Capitals!
The battle to rule Hellas has never been more fiercely waged, and you mustn’t attempt to strike out on your own lest you be defeated!
To tilt the odds in your favor, your Coalition must come together and find one location from which to rule. The gods have heard your cries and gifted you with Coalition Capitals!
Coalition Capitals are special Buildings that bring together the forces of a Coalition and strengthen the armies of its Members. You can protect and upgrade your own Coalition Capital, or engage rival Capitals by attacking and downgrading them. If you are successful, this will see their Levels reduced, and limit the bonuses they are able to receive.
As if that wasn’t reason enough, having a central Coalition Capital allows your Coalition to develop Disciplines, which provide enormous bonuses to all your Coalition Members’ armies.
Coalition Capitals have 21 levels (0-20). When first constructed, Coalition Capitals will be at Level 3, but can be downgraded to zero by rival Coalitions. The higher the Level of your Coalition Capital, the greater the bonuses it is able to provide to your Coalition Members.
Each upgrade Level grants you additional Influence Points and increases the bonuses you are able to receive from your Disciplines.
Tools are required to Upgrade Coalition Capitals. They can be earned by either participating in certain Tournaments, or by purchasing them from the “Info” tab of your Coalition Capital.
When you construct your Coalition Capital, you also gain access to Disciplines. The “Disciplines” section of your Coalition Capital interface contains a variety of Disciplines. Developing these provides statistical bonuses to the armies of ALL Members of that Coalition.
Disciplines are not affected by attacks, and cannot be downgraded. Once developed to a certain Level, they will never drop below that Level.
To develop a Discipline, you’ll need Medals.
Medals are a special Coalition-only Resource that can be earned by participating in Coalition Missions and Tournaments, or by purchasing them with Drachmas when developing your Disciplines.
COALITION CAPITAL INTERACTIONS
Each Coalition should work to downgrade other Coalitions’ Capitals. Firstly, downgrading rival Coalition Capitals keeps them from receiving bonuses. Secondly, downgrading other Coalition Capitals is vital for a Coalition hoping to upgrade their own Capital.
To downgrade a rival Coalition Capital, your Coalition must perform a successful attack on it.
If another Coalition successfully attacks your Coalition Capital while an upgrade is NOT in progress, your Coalition Capital will be downgraded by one Level, and 50% of the Tools spent on the upgrade to the lost Level will be returned to your Coalition.
If another Coalition manages to perform a successful attack on your Coalition Capital while it is being upgraded, the upgrade will fail, and your Capital will be downgraded by one Level. Your Coalition will be reimbursed 75% of the Tools spent on the attempted upgrade, as well as a further 50% of the Tools spent on the upgrade to the lost Level.
Important: Coalition Capitals cannot be downgraded more than ONCE per day.
COALITION CAPITAL MANAGEMENT (FOR COALITION HEGEMON)
BUILDING YOUR COALITION CAPITAL
COALITION CAPITALS can only be built on special Capital Foundations, which can be found on the Map and are scattered throughout Hellas.
Each Coalition may build only ONE Coalition Capital.
Only the Coalition Hegemon is able to initially construct your Coalition Capital.
To construct your Coalition Capital, go to the Map. From there, click on the large icon in the bottom-left to open the "Locate Capital Foundations" window, then click “Find Capital Foundations”. The rest is simple: find Capital Foundations in a place that suits you, then click "Place Capital".
RELOCATING YOUR COALITION CAPITAL
Coalition Capital Pools are special Items that can be used to change an Capital’s location on the Map. Coalition Capital Pools can be acquired from the Market, within the “Special” tab.
Only Coalition Leaders – and those Coalition Members granted permission to do so – can:
- Spend Tools to upgrade their Coalition Capital. Upgrading your Coalition Capital takes time, but this process can be sped up with the use of Drachmas.
- Use Coalition Capital Pools to relocate their Coalition Capital to a new location of their choosing.
- Use Medals to Develop a Coalition’s Discipline.
You’d be wise to remember this information, Archon. If you need further clarification or information, view the “Guide” section in-game.
REMEMBER: Only Coalitions that have been around for more than 7 days are able to create a Coalition Capital.
If you are the Hegemon of your Coalition, click on the “Build” button below to construct your Coalition Capital immediately! Set your Coalition on a path to victory over those seeking to defeat you!
