err how does this work? am I, one player supposed to attack a Beacon, held by a LEAGUE?

Are there special Beacons for single players? otherwise I am mounting an attack (which will fail unless I'm L100+ have 5m army) against an entire league who will likely as not, use me as a punchbag....

League marshals, captains, commanders, and fighters can initiate league attacks (up to 3 players sending off together)

many times weak 1-5 mil softening blows are sent to weaken the beacon before a big hammer captures it.

it will take more like 50mil (for a full common beacon) it is easiest to get points playing beacon pong.

you do not need to participate in the tournament i usually do not for beacons exept playing pong.

Solo / League naming is based on the way the conquest points are distributed.


League Beacon quest will get the league all the points and show under 1 banner

Solo beacon quest will get the individual players who are involved in the contest.

So why call it a solo tournament? and how many players can throw multi million attacks at a beacon for a handful of "solo" tournament Points?

Surely this is a mistaken contest?

If I were a league holding a beacon, and some upstart started chucking solo attacks, Id be v.tempted to get my closest league members to flatten him.....

on server 2 it would only require you 300k offense each to get the least reward.. maybe more if you hit a less defended beacon.


Participation is obviously a choice of individual but it is also dependent on how smartly you play.


if you attack a beacon that belongs to a league which has single beacon they will stack it as much as they can and it will be difficult to bring it down.


if you attack a beacon of a small league with not many high level players then you are more probable to get more points and take down that beacon as well.


Use offense that you can throw away not everything that you have. slightly chipping a beacon regularly will also make the beacon weak and you might end up with taking down the beacon.

In most leagues if you attack a Beacon there is an immediate retaliation. Remember when attacking a Beacon you are attacking every member of that league who have defenses in the Beacon. This can be disastrous to your health.

Unless you can find a weak beacon that is not defended well it is a waste of troops to try to get points as an individual player


Beacon tournaments are made to kill troops - your troops lol


if your league is planning on hitting a beacon to take it from a rival league, coordinate with your league's leadership to participate


generally you would have to be willing to put up more than 1 million in troop power to participate


my advice keep building fodder troops so you can participate in a softening blow - build lots of infantry & cavalry offense - sacrificial troops for this purpose :)

You bring up an interesting method of softening Beacons before they are attacked. If the softening does not work don't waste the powerful troops.
