My Lords and Ladies, if you have not yet built a League Fortress, it is high time you do so!

In this post, we have attempted to describe the feature and the way it works in as much detail as we could. We hope it will be of help to you and your Leagues!

“What is a Fortress?” you’d ask. Well, it is a city that a League can build. It can be founded by League Marshals for free with an option to select its location. The Fortress grants bonuses to the League and its members.

Creating a League Fortress

The option to create a Fortress is only available to League Marshals if the Fortress is not built yet. The Fortress can be built for free.

When creating a Fortress, a League Marshal has to select its location.

The initial choice of a location is only available to League Marshals.

The second choice of the Fortress’ location (Teleportation) is available to League Marshals and those who have Fortress management rights.

Please note that you will need special Teleportation Items to be able to move your League Fortress.

League Fortress’ Purpose

The Fortress provides new opportunities called Fields of Knowledge. They will give bonuses to every League Member. In addition, they will extend your League’s Influence! Every Field of Knowledge can be upgraded to Level 20. Note that Fields of Knowledge are dependent upon the Fortress Level.

For example, your Fortress is upgraded to Level 10, and a Field of Knowledge is Level 10 as well. When the Fortress is downgraded to Level 9, the Knowledge Level will stay the same, but the bonus it gives is going to be Level 9 until the Fortress is upgraded back to Level 10. Mastering the Fields of Knowledge is not determined by the Fortress Level. In other words, even with a Fortress of Level 0 your League can max out the Knowledge. You can master new Levels of the Fields of Knowledge with the help of the Tomes.

Note: Beacons will not be replaced. They will stay in the game along with the Fortresses.

Managing your League Fortress

Once your Marshal has founded a Fortress, your League can start upgrading it. The upgrade progress will be displayed in the “Info” tab of your Fortress as well as all the active bonuses your Units receive from the Fortress. You will be able to change your Fortress’ name there, too. In other words, using this tab, my Lord, you will be able to keep track of all the Fortress affairs. There will also be a “Garrisons” tab where you will be able to see the number of Units defending the Fortress.

To upgrade your Fortress, you will need to go to the “Info” tab. This action can be performed by either the League Marshal or any other League member that has those rights. There are several conditions under which the League Fortress can be upgraded:

Your League has a sufficient amount of Glory Points.

You captured the necessary amount of Beacons, and they are of certain Levels (those amounts will be different for different Levels).

Your League has a certain position in the Rankings.

You have downgraded an enemy League Fortress of a certain Level.

If the League Marshal is changed, the Fortress management rights goes to the new Marshal. The Fortress ceases to exist after the League is dismissed.  

If a Fortress is teleported, all Reinforcements sent there will return to the Castles of players that sent them.

League Fortresses can be added to Contacts.

League Fortress Resources

There are two types of Resources: Glory Points and Tomes.

Glory Points are used to upgrade the Fortress. They can be received as Rewards in League Tournaments or purchased with Sapphires. Using Sapphires you can only purchase the amount of Glory Points required to upgrade the Fortress to the next Level.

Tomes are required to upgrade the Fields of Knowledge in the League Fortress. They can be received as Rewards in League Quests or purchased with Sapphires.

Please note that the Points earned in game challenges will go towards the League balance, not personal ones. If a Lord or Lady quits the League, Glory Points and Tomes received by him/her will not be added to his/her balance. They will remain on the League balance.

League Fortress Downgrade

Lords and Ladies, please note that your League Fortress can be downgraded if your rivals successfully attack it. So make sure it is well protected!

If another League successfully attacks your Fortress whilst an upgrade is NOT in progress, your Fortress will be downgraded by one Level, and 50% of the Glory Points spent on the most recent upgrade will be returned to your League.

If another League manages to perform a successful attack on your Fortress whilst it is being upgraded, the upgrade will fail, and your Fortress will be downgraded by one Level. Your League will be reimbursed 75% of the Glory Points spent on the attempted upgrade, as well as a further 50% of the Glory Points spent on the most recent successful upgrade.

The downgrade is impossible when your Fortress is at Level 5 or 8; in other words, once you reach Level 5, your enemies will not be able to downgrade your Fortress below that Level so you do not have to start upgrading it all over again.

Battle interactions

Lords and Ladies may send Private and League Attacks against the League Fortresses of rival Leagues. An Attack is not a Raid or a Siege; it is an assault with the purpose of killing Units. All battle actions work the same way as they do with Hamlets. Attacks and Spying attempts can be launched against a rival Fortress if it is not under protection (after the Fortress was created). Attacks against League Fortresses cannot be sent by Lords or Ladies that are not in a League or by Leagues that have no Fortress. It is important to mention that you will not be able to see the Attacks coming to your League Fortress. You can send Reinforcements to your League Fortress. Units lost in combat are placed in their owners Healer (regular rules apply).

Available Fields of Knowledge

Food Consumption Reduction

Unit Speed Increase

Infantry Defense

Cavalry Defense

Occult Defense

Bestiary Defense

Infantry Offense

Cavalry Offense

Occult Offense

Bestiary Offense

The Knowledge bonus only applies to the four basic Unit groups.

Limits and special features

Each League can only have one Fortress.

Units move to the Fortress at the same speed as they do to Beacons (x24 times faster).

Protection against Attacks lasts for the first 24 hours after its creation. During that time, none of the League members can Attack other Leagues’ Fortresses.

League Fortress gets a 24-hour protection after it was downgraded. Additionally, it cannot be further downgraded for some time. Note: The League Fortress can still be attacked.

Force Limits: Maximum Private Attack - 150,000 Food; Max League Attack – 500,000 Food.

Important! Neophytes will not be able to

 

visit League Fortresses;

interact with them (attack, spy, send Reinforcements);

take advantage of the League Bonuses.

Neophytes will be able to see the Fortresses on the Map.

Diplomacy

Diplomacy determines interactions with League Fortress in the same way it does with Beacons.

Players in friendly Leagues (Piece status) cannot attack each other’s League Fortresses.

Allies can attack your League Fortress. Attack limits are standard.

Neutral players can attack your League Fortress. Attack limits are standard.

Enemies can attack your League Fortress. Attack limits are standard.

In a Challenge, players of the other League can attack your League Fortress. Attack limits are standard.

During War, players of the other League can attack your League Fortress. No Attack limits.

Lords and Ladies, may the Fortresses bring your Leagues eternal prosperity. Let them be witnesses of your glorious victories!

No actually you can't . You can go for "free" in lvl6 but you will need to downgrade a lvl6 or higher to go up to lvl7 . And then once you arrive at lvl7 you have to downgrade a lvl7 or higher to go up to lvl8 . You CAN"T downgrade a lvl7 fortess and go directly to lvl8 when yours is still lvl5 . I dont think that it will even count on going up to lvl7 if you attack it while you are in lvl5.

hey Daniel,

i dont wanna go directly to level 8 (from level 5) but i wanted to know that if i am at level 5 and attack a level 7 (what you need to do to go to level 8)  i dont need to attack a level 6 also .... i hope i explain it ok? :)   the normal way would be to attack a level 6 first to go to level 6....  but i want to skip this step and attack a level 7 so i can upgrade to 6, 7, 8 without attacking any other fortresses


Thanks for sharing your thoughts with me

The mechanics are as follows:

1) You reach level 7.

2) You downgrade level 7.

3) You can upgrade to level 8.

4) You can be downgraded to level 7 again.

5) You won't have to downgrade another level 7, it already counts.

8) You can upgrade to level 8 again.


OR


1) You are at level 5.

2) You can downgrade level 7. It DOESN'T count.

3) You can upgrade to level 6.

4) You downgrade level 6. Or let's take level 7. That counts.

5) You can upgrade to level 7.

6) You must downgrade ONE MORE level 7.

7) Then you can upgrade to level 8.


I hope I could clarify how it works to you

I thought that lvl8 was a safe point . So it CANT be downgraded to lvl 7. and now you are saying that it can? You are wrong then as it CANT be downgraded i have attacked lvl8 fortesses and they stayed at that level... Plus i don't think that the credit of downgrading a lvl7 will count again if you get downgraded as it would be possible to go to lvl8 very easy with 2 leagues working together.

Nope you can't skip it . You will need to downgrade that lvl6 to go up by one lvl and then downgrade the lvl7 to go up to 8 .


You are lvl 5 

Upgrade to lvl6 with glory points

Downgrade a lvl6 + the glory points will take you to lvl7 

Downgrade a lvl7 + the glory points will take you to lvl8 .


No other way , No skip to anything.

Level 8 is a milestone level and cannot be downgraded, are levels 10 and 12 milestones also or can they be downgraded at those levels?

Thanks, I thought there was a previous post somewhere that gave us that information but I couldn't find it, it might be helpful if it was actually included in the information tab on the game, I did actually try to find the information myself :/

You can build a Fortress only if your league is at least 7 days old.

Hi there

If I read the replies above as correct, if our fortress is at level5 we must upgrade it to level 6 first before downgrading a level 6 fort, then upgrade to level 7 and then do a level 7 fort to go to lvl 8. Or does the downgraded level 6 fort we achieved(whilst lvl 5 fort) show up when we get to the lvl 6 after the glory point upgrade completes?
