Relocation Pools - unsettling questions

Archons!

The gods anticipated that Relocation Pools would raise a lot of unsettling questions. For example, if I relocate, is it truly me that relocates, or a copy of myself? Is the original “me” destroyed?

The gods recommend putting aside these petty concerns. They have compiled a practical list of answers to common questions, so that you can relocate your City with confidence.

A Pool of Fate and a Pool of Fidelity are powerful tools, and it is important that you know how to use them. Let’s begin!

Basic Questions about Relocation Pools

Question (Q): What are the Pool of Fate and the Pool of Fidelity? How are they different?

Answer (A): Pool of Fidelity is a special items used to relocate a City to the coordinates of your choice on the Map. Pool of Fate is used to relocate a City to RANDOM coordinates on the Map.

Q: What is a Vacant Zone?

A: Vacant Zones are special zones where other Cities can be moved. Vacant Zones cannot be raided, reconned, etc. When a City Relocates, its original coordinates turn into a Vacant Zone. If a player is inactive for an extremely long time, their City will turn into a Vacant Zone. When that player logs in again, their City will be automatically relocated.

Transportation of Troops & Galleysto and from Relocated Cities

(Q): What happens to another Player’s Troops that are moving to my City while it is being relocated?

(A): If another player sends Troops to your City while it is being relocated, they will be returned to their owner’s Acropolis. Leonidas will inform the other Player of any returned Units in a special message.

Q : What happens to another Player’s Troops (Siege Forces/ Reinforcements) that are in my City while it is being Relocated?

A: Reinforcement Troops, and Troops actively occupying your City, will Relocate to the new coordinates along with your City.

Q: What happens to my Troops that are moving to another player’s City at the time of my City's Relocation?

A: Your troops will continue travelling to their destination. Travel time to their destination will not change. However, the travel time of their return will be calculated based on the new location of your City.

Q: What happens to my Troops (Siege Forces/Reinforcements) that are in another Player’s City while my City is being relocated?

A: They will stay at the target City and remain unaffected.

Q: What happens to Troops (siege Forces/ Reinforcements) in my City, if their owner’s City is turned into a Vacant Zone?

A: Such Troops will stay in your City and remain unaffected.

Q: What happens if I send Troops and/or Galleys to a City that becomes a Vacant Zone while they are travelling there?

A: Your Troops would return to your Acropolis immediately. Galleys that were NOT sent via the Port will continue travelling to the new location of the target City (this may cause travel time to increase). They will deliver their supplies and return to your City, empty.

Q: A player creates an offer at the Port, then Relocates his or her City. Where do the Galleys go when the offer is accepted?

A: Galleys sent via the Port will always travel to a City using the coordinates which are indicated at the moment of the trade offer’s acceptance. If those coordinates are a Vacant Zone by the time the Galleys arrives, the Resources and/or Articles will be delivered to an empty space, and no one will receive them. The Galleys will then return, empty, to their senders.

Q: What happens to another player’s Galleys that are on their way to my City while I am Relocating?

A: Provided that the Galleys were not dispatched via the Port, the other player’s Galleys will travel on to your City's new coordinates. This may cause travel time to increase. The Galleys will deliver their cargo and return empty to their sender.

Coalition Attacks

Q: What happens to my Troops that are participating in a Coalition Attack at the time of my City's Relocation?

A: Your Troops would continue moving to the target. Troops’ travel time won’t be affected.

Q: What happens to my troops that are returning from a Coalition Attack at the time of my City's Relocation?

A: Your Troops would continue moving to your City. Troops’ travel time won’t be affected.

Greek Assassins

Q: What happens to Greek Assassins fired at my City while it is being relocated?

A: The Greek Assassins would return to their owner’s City.

Q: What happens to Greek Assassins fire at other Cities while my City is being relocated?

A: The Greek Assassins would reach the target, and their travel time would not be affected.

Persian Positions and Missions

Q: What happens to my Troops travelling to or from Persian Positions or Missions at the time of my City's Relocation?

A: Your Troops’ travel time to and from these destinations will be unaffected. Persian Positions and/or Mission objectives will move along with your City. When you reach your new coordinates, these locations may appear to be located differently, but the distance between them and your City will stay the same.

About Battle Reports

Q: I have a Battle Report on a City that is relocated. What happens to the data on this Report?

A: If a battle takes place before Relocation is completed, the Battle Report will contain the target City's old coordinates. If a battle takes place after Relocation is completed, the Battle Report will contain the target City's new coordinates.

Contacts

Q: What happens to my Contacts for Cities that Relocate?

A: Your Contacts will automatically update to reflect the City's’ new locations. This data should update within 10 minutes of a City's’ Relocation. If it does not, try refreshing the page.

Q: What happens to my Contact of a City that is automatically turned into a Vacant Zone due to the owner’s inactivity?

A: These coordinates would remain the same. Because the owner of this City is inactive, when you click on the coordinates, you will see a Vacant Zone. In the future, these coordinates will be displayed as question marks, i.e., x: ??, y:?? .

when this was released, it was claimed these pools were available in the Misc tan in the market. I cant see them. I have heard you have to win them. How are they won, which tournaments are they available as prizes, will they be available for purchase?

Hello and thank you Basileus Leoniadas,


Not sure how to do that, but the problem is solved anyway as I now have the 3 special offers in the right hand corner  and they include the pools I need, so I will buy one of those special packages!


Thank you for the trouble anyway.

This keeps being suggested, but nobody that I know of has it in the market including me.  Can you not bring it to the attention of the designers or whoever?  If it's supposed to be in the market, there seems to be more people without it than with it, and is obviously a widespread issue. 

Of everyone I've asked, the only time anyone has seen them at the market is AFTER they purchased them through a package.  I don't know why the mods keep insisting they should be there.  They are not.
