Limit To Raiding Resources

I'm curious. Before there was a limit to how many resources you could take from a raid which was 50,000, after that you couldn't raid that person again for 7 days. I just got raided twice by the same person (1st raid was about 60,000 +  2nd raid was 30,000 +) I also have my Acropolis past level 20 and when these raids took place my Timber and Bronze were both well under 100,000) Did the raid maximum change now? Can people continue to raid even though they reach 50,000 in resources in the first raid? If not this person should have never been able to raid me a second time since the first raid was well over 50,000 in resources.

soft limit was and still is 50k

hard limit was and is 100k.


I assume he raided his galley capacity second time around.

Well now when Galleys can be on 50k ou can raid a lot.. you can attack enemy (even if you raid 100k from him), then just use trick(send him 50k) and you will get his res..  so thats more than 100+ in week.. you can do that many times :)

What is the maximum you have collected in a single raid?  Is there a hard coded limit of 100K?  I don't think so because the weekly raiding leader board has several players at well over 100K AVERAGE per raid for the week (70 x 100K = 7000K - several players are well above that)


I am still a novice at this part of the game but I get 92.5K pretty regularly on a single raid, limited by 50K + current 30-galley capacity of 42.5K.  With 40 galleys and maximum port/harbor I should be at over 60K capacity so raiding 110K should be possible?

The max i can get from 1 city is 150k per week...

that's how far my knowledge goes.

I think the weekly "net exchange limit"  that can be raided from a city is 50K meaning that any amount of resources sent to the city just before a raid is added to the 50K.  Therefore my limit has been 42.5K + 50K = 92.5K weekly limit which also limits a single raid to that amount.

How much has anyone collected from a single raid?  Anyone? 120K? 130K?

Greetings Archon,

you cannot take more than 100k from a single raid.

YOu can get:

50k without the galley trick

100k if u got max galleys, etc with galley trick

That's what my experience in raiding shows.

That is not correct as it would limit weekly raid total to 70 x 100K = 7000K if every single raid collects a perfect 100K... There are players collecting 8000K in the weekly top raider ranking equating to 115K per raid.  Its unlikely a player can hit 70 perfect raids so I have to assume a single raiding limit of 130K or more to average 115K per raid for an entire week...

Archon..Gallyes are max 50k not 100k

You can raid one farm only once and take 100k.. every next attack on that farm will give you max 50k if you use galleys.(talking about 1 castel)

And about those players who raid to be in TOP10..I guess they know few more tricks

they use long distance raids, 24hours before new week starts they send 10raids on 24hours journey, when week starts they hit these 10raids + they have 10more raid attempts, so in first few minutes of new week they can have 20raids done, ie. 2mil resources


ofc it can only be done every second week, that's why they rotate bi-weekly.


btw anything over 2-4mil res per week is pointless, unless u can hit top 3, even top 10 is not bad for 500+ drachmas

Well said, that's one trick and all top10 raiders are using that tactic

The 100K are fictious.


You can get as much only if you send 50K to your target first (whether you cancel or not, btw, it just works the same), or if he has plundered 50K off your city he has raided first.


In either case, the maximum you can get is 50K from the tharget + 50K that were belonging to you in the first place.

It works like an accounting balance : if he plunders 50K from you, then you're allowed to get your own 50K back. But you can get 50K off him only once.

This means you can go on snatching 50K from each other in turn all day long if you like (well, until you've exhausted your 10 daily raids slots, that is) . :p


So in concusion, you really can't take more than 50K off anybody every week. Any additional amount has to come from yourself in the first place, so you're technically not stealing it from your target.


The galley trick only allows to complete quests more easily, but it never impairs your target.

That's probably the reason why, though knowing about that glitch for ages, Plarium never did anything to prevent using this "trick".

If they would block this, you wouldn't be able to avenge from someone who would have raided your city and get your resources back.

this is not old technique for sending 50k grain to 6 cities per day to raid them for 100k and then another 4 raid for 50k+36k capacity back then


this is legitimate 100k raid in one go, 50k normal +50k galleys, you don't have to send anything to anyone if u cancel without that 40-50second window

You must use long distance raids on Sunday, just a few hours before new week starts is enough...

You send 10 raids on 24hours journey, and when week starts, you hit those 10 cities plus 10 more raids from monday, means 20 raids done = 2000 res colected on the first day (monday) and you don't have to send anything to anyone if you cancel your galleys.


About the limit that you can take from each city per week, 150k is the limit.

I'm not saying you have to, I'm saying you can, which is different.

Either you cancel or not, you'll just get the exact same result.

difference is that, if u cancel galleys u get full 100k and if u don't u raid 100k, but 50k will be send back, plus locked galleys for while :)

Locked galleys only towards this very player.


But you're right on this point : if the galleys reach the target, you may get your resources back, but you won't be able to repeat the process.


While if you cancel, collect, then send another raid, you may send galleys again to get 50K (not more, as you can't take any more actual resources off the target) again.


But once again, you can only get your own 50K back. :)


However, it could help in case you're out of available farms far a quest. :)
