Hello. Each day we can find some tributes in our city.  They are on the right side. Usually some ships and carts with grain, bronze, timber. They are free resources. But can anyone explain the tribute game calculation method?  I mean, what determines the tribute amount everyday?


*Is tribute amount based on player level? How many players visit to your city? Something different?


*What determines the tribute amount we can get from coaltion cities? Is there some way to increase coalition city tributes we can get?  -Now, only some coailtion cities have tributes I can click. Other cities do not. Usually the number is 3 tributes. But other times the number is 1 or 2.  I dont understand why some coaltion cities have tributes,  others dont have tributes, some have 3, others have only 1 or 2.  


*When I visit ally or friends cities, there are no tributes. I am not sure why.  Is it possible to get tributes when we visit ally or friends cities? How? 


I read some message from the game about 'weekly tribute rankings'.  The best players did very well. But I can't understand how they can get so many tributes. I mean, if daily tributes are limited, coaltion city tributes are limited, ally and friend cities dont give tributes, how do we get that many tributes?

Thank you.

In your city..there are 4 tribute ships and 6 tribute caravans.. so you can claim 10 tributes from your city per day,

If you visit your friends city you will have 3 tribute mostly (sometimes 4, sometimes 2, even 5).

I think that maximum tribute per day is 30 (10 from your city + 20 from friends city).I really haven't check if those tributes from friends city counts in tribute achievement, it should but haven't tested.

if you claim 20 tributes from friends city.. in every next city you will find 0 tributes

Now.. what is the difference, why some friends cities have 2,some 3 and few of them 5 tributes, i have no idea. Maybe if someone already visited that city and took tributes next player who visit that city will have less tributes to collect..maybe there is some limit there too.. who know.

OK. Thank you Drag-Theseus,  Zsolt Antal. 


I tested for one week.  My calculation was similar but not the same each time.  I mean, I got 10 total in my city everyday -same.  But from coaltion friend cities, I got 18-30 -not the same each day.  When I visited some friends cities not in my coaltion, I got 0 each time. Maybe friends need to visit too? Then we both get tributes? I mean, if only 1 player visits, then nothing. But if both players visit each other, we can get more tributes?


We need 10000 tributes for the last reward.   That is 3+ years if the tribute calculation limit is like that -a very long time.  There must be a faster way.

True..when I visit some city which is not my friend I get 0 tributes offered.. so only when I visit friend city I get tributes offered.that is for sure.

It could be possible that you get more tributes if you visit each other..you could test that too with your friends, I think it might be true.

and yea..it takes really long to collect them all
I'm stucked on 3600-3700 tributes collected..so I'm on 1/3 of full goal haha
