A question about the colours of city names : green, red or brown

I've noticed on the map some city names are in a green box, others a red box, then others in a brown box.  These colours change over time or with activity. Can't work out if the colours mean something.


I was wondering if there is a system behind the colours or is it random.


For example,  a bot city close to me has been under siege (and the bot's name was red), the seige has been going on for a few hours now, and the colour of the bot's name is now brown. So are the colours significant in some way, or just meant to pretty up the map?


Just curious.

Good morning Trajan,


AFAIK the colour background of city names are:

Green: coalition member, ally or similar, including player whom one has recently sent resources.

Red: opponent, a member of a coalition at war with one's own, a player one has recently raided, and similar.

Brown: neutral, none of the above.


Personally, I only check on city name colours when raiding bots or abandoned cities which do not fit on my contacts list. A red highlight, for example is a good sign that I have recently raided the city and it is still within the 50k weekly limit.

Cheers Dio

Diomedes is correct


also if you want to change someone from red back to brown, send them a res galley then cancel it before it arrives, you wont lose the res but it clears them off your list :)

Or you can send a jav as reinforcement to their city that also gets the job done and the red color turns into green color!

Got to admit I don't use my contacts list! I never raid from there I keep an excel file with my (inactive I might add) farms!

Let's hope I'm not on anyone's contact list!

True, my abandoned cities list would be way to large to keep as contacts. 90% of my contacts are bots in my neighborhood, might explain why have have so few friends :-); it is though a quick way to check how much res I am still able to raid within a week.

Actually I believe they turn green, at least all those bots I raid with the galley trick switch to green. ... after about a week they of course do revert to brown.

Well yeah I know the feeling! My abandoned cities list is quite large too so the excel is one very good solution for situations like that! 

By the way I don't think I have many bot cities around or maybe I haven't noticed them. Who knows!
