A new Competition: the Battle for Asgard

The Battle for Asgard is a legendary Competition for Clans. You will have to capture Asgard Towers one by one in sequence in order to make your way to the central Fortress. Your Clan will earn points by holding these Towers.

i

Important terms that are used in the Competition

  • The Outlands are a territory that surrounds the Floating Isles. When you relocate to Asgard, your Town is placed in the Outlands.
  • The Floating Isles are the territory within Asgard where the main action takes place.
  • Asgard Towers are Fortresses on the Floating Isles that you have to capture. They are guarded by neutral troops called Asgard Sentinels.
  • A Tower territory consists of tiles near an Asgard Tower where Towns can be placed. The number of such places is limited.
  • Neighboring Towers are Asgard Towers that are connected to each other directly by a bridge or gateway.

Requirements for participation

You can participate if your Clan was created no later than 24 hours before the Competition was announced. If your Clan is new, you can switch to another Clan or wait for the next Battle for Asgard.

Relocation to Asgard

The Competition is held in Asgard, and the corresponding icon appears on the Kingdoms Map during the active phase of the Competition.

i

Players can relocate to Asgard only if they meet the following requirements:

  • Their Clan must be participating in the Battle for Asgard
  • Their Palace must be level 34 or higher

To relocate your Town to Asgard, use the Guide to Asgard item, and to return to your home Kingdom, use the Guide to Midgard item. You can get them for free in the Competition window or purchase them in the Item Store or Clan Store.

i

When you relocate your Town to Asgard, you can place it only in the Outlands. Your Peace Shield, Town Skin, or Repute remain active, and your Town's Echo is left in place of your Town in your home Kingdom.

i

When you relocate your Town to the territory of an Asgard Tower, another Town's Echo remains in the Outlands, and this Echo is the only place you can occupy if you want to return there. Note that the Town's Echo you left in your home Kingdom doesn't disappear.

i

Relocation within the territory of Asgard

To relocate your Town within the territory of Asgard, use the Relocation item. You can move around in the Outlands, attack other players' Towns, or send reinforcements and resources without any restrictions.

On the Isles, your Town can only be located on the territory of a Tower that is being held by your Clan or an ally.

Capturing Asgard Towers

These Towers are located only on the Floating Isles. They are connected to the Outlands by bridges and to each other by bridges or gateways. It is only possible to attack a Tower from a neighboring territory, so a bridge or gateway is the only way to reach whichever Tower you need.

i


i

For example, if your troops have to cross the territory of another Asgard Tower in order to attack the Tower that is your target, the attack will not be possible.

You can't attack a Tower if:

  • It isn't connected to the Outlands by a bridge
  • It isn't connected to your Tower by a bridge or gateway

Each Tower is guarded by Asgard Sentinels, and a Tower is considered captured only once you have eliminated them. The closer to the Heart of Asgard a Tower is located, the more Sentinels it contains, and the more points you will earn by holding the Tower.

i

A Clan can only hold a maximum of four Asgard Towers at a time. If you withdraw all your troops from a Tower, the empty Tower will still belong to your Clan. You'll lose control over the Tower only if it is recaptured by another Clan.

While holding four Towers, you can continue attacking other Asgard Towers and eliminating troops that are defending them. However, these other Towers won't fall under your control, and you won't earn points for holding them.

A Tower that has been captured by your own Clan's or your allied Clan's troops is considered a friendly one. You can station reinforcements there, and your Clan members and allies can relocate their Towns to the territory surrounding it.

You can send reinforcements to a Tower from the Tower's own territory or from the territory of a neighboring Tower if the latter is controlled by your Clan or allies and is connected by a bridge or gateway to the Tower being defended.

You can relocate Towns to the territory of a friendly Tower from any location within Asgard. However, if a friendly Tower is captured by an opponent, the Towns on its territory will be returned to their Echoes in the Outlands.

i


i

Restrictions on Onslaughts

Onslaughts are the most effective way to capture an Asgard Tower.

All Onslaughts on the Floating Isles are local, i.e. all the participants in the Onslaught must be on the territory of the same Tower as the initiator of the Onslaught.

You can send troops from any location within the Outlands to conduct an Onslaught on a Tower that is connected to the Outlands by a bridge.

If an Onslaught has been initiated by you or one of your clanmates, and you manage to capture the Tower, your Clan will earn points for every second the Tower is held. If you've sent reinforcements on an Onslaught that was initiated by an allied Clan, and the Tower falls under the control of your allies, your Clan won't get points for this Tower.

Points scored and the importance of the central Fortress

Points are scored for each second a Tower is held.

Asgard Towers differ in terms of their level, which determines the number of Sentinels in the Tower, the number of points scored for holding it, and its capacity to accommodate players' reinforcements. These levels are indicated by the letters A, B, C, D, and E.

Level A is assigned to the "weakest" Towers, which are nearest the Outlands and which bring the least points.

Level E is assigned to the central Tower, which has the highest defense and grants the most points when held.

i

Towns in the Heart of Asgard can be attacked, as Shields are not active in the territory of Towers of level D or E. If an attack is successful, the defeated Town will be returned to its Echo in the Outlands.

i

Capture Asgard Towers one by one and make your way from the edges to the center. The more points you earn by holding Towers, the higher your chance to climb the Competition ranking.

Rewards

By reaching checkpoints and taking the top places in the Competition ranking, Clans receive Medals of the Aesir. Clan Chiefs can spend these Medals in the Asgard Store to purchase items, equipment, and Town and Hero's Skins, which they can either keep or give to their clanmates.

i


i

The number of items in stock is limited. Like the Helheim Store, the Asgard Store updates periodically, and its stock is replenished. The Asgard Store does not depend on whether the Battle for Asgard is active or not. The Clan Chief can spend Medals of the Aesir at any time.

Players get Soul Shards by eliminating Asgard Sentinels and troops belonging to players from other Kingdoms. The color markers are the same as in the Battle for the Throne: Towns from other Kingdoms have a red level marker, while allied Towns have a green one.

In the Outlands, you can attack any players' Towns. While on the Isles, however, you can only attack Towns in the territory of the neighboring Tower, i.e. your Tower must be connected by a bridge or gateway to the one you want to attack.

Q&A

Can I switch Clans during the Competition?

Yes. In order to do so, relocate from Asgard to your home Kingdom, switch Clans, and return to Asgard.

What Clan actions are not possible in the territory of Asgard?

  • The Clan Chief cannot disband the Clan or transfer power to another player
  • Players cannot leave their Clan, create a new Clan, or join another one
  • The Chief and Elders cannot expel a player from the Clan

When capturing Towers, is it necessary to move towards the Heart of Asgard?

Not at all. If you want, you can capture only the Towers in the first and second ring — it all depends on the strategy you choose.

Can I attack or send an Onslaught on a Tower that is controlled by my allied Clan?

No. You can only send reinforcements there.

My Clan has captured four Towers. How can we get rid of one we don't need anymore?

There's nothing you can do about this. Your Clan's Tower must be captured by an opponent.

If an opponent already has four Towers, can they attack my Clan's Tower?

Yes. The opponent can completely eliminate the troops that you left in the Tower. However, they won't be able to capture it, because they have already reached the limit of four Towers.

If there are scouts in a Tower, do I have to send scouts to attack it?

No. Just send regular troops, and the enemy's scouts will return to their Towns.

Can my Clan directly attack the central Asgard Tower from the Outlands?

No. You can't attack the central Tower from the Outlands in this way. First, capture a Tower that is closest to the Outlands, move from the territory of this Tower to a neighboring Tower, and so on until you get to the Heart of Asgard.

What will happen if an opponent breaks my chain of captured Towers? Will I be able to move to the territory of my Towers if they are not connected by bridges?

Yes, and what's more, you can move to the territory of a Tower you've captured from any location within Asgard.

Why can't I join an Onslaught?

Perhaps you are not in the same territory as the initiator of the Onslaught, or there is no space for your troop in it.

Is there a mini-map of Asgard?

Yes. You can find the corresponding icon on the Global Map in Asgard.

There are no filters for resource locations and opponents on this mini-map. Also, Asgard Towers are only visible at 80%–100% zoom. However, the central Fortress is always displayed.

What happens to Medals of the Aesir if the Clan is disbanded?

The Medals will be lost.

The carrot just got bigger, and the slippery slope to oblivion just got steeper.

The gifting of the souped up bonuses will just get passed to their alt accounts, and then their buddies, and then it will descend to general goods as well.

 As always its for  the big spenders, and a kick in the teeth for the rest who might as well just give up, or even not bother to start, in the first instance, as the rest of the competitions levels achievability speed away into the distance.

I agree.  Our clan already doesn't compete in most events so I guess this is just another irrelevance.

Given the current trend, which I referenced, I think it most unlikely that you would introduce anything to benefit me,unless it was some kind of positive motivator.

I can tell you that already I will not be able to enjoy the update, nor the competition, as it is far beyond my capacity to participate, there is no incentive to go where things are harder as its a struggle to achieve anything worthwhile with the league I am in and the levels set as they are.

You  have  lowered  the  gains  in  all  events  !  You  create  new  one  for  big  castle!  But  if  there  is  not  smaller  castle,  big  castle  only  your  game  will  die

Dear Vikings, too lazy to read? 😀

Here is the Video format of this Competition Guide:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s0ornzzYgPI

I do not like official posts that take up loads of space, take ages to load, and are repeated on every new opening page on the thread.

This one was particularly mind blowing, and it wasn't that I was lazy,I just didn't want to plow through it ,mainly because  it wasn't for me.

 In spite of this, I watched the whole  of your video,I was totally unengaged and found it tedious and I thought the helmet looked ridiculous. 

There is no archaelogical evidence that vikings wore  horned helmets, but then much of the game has nothing to do with vikings.

What are Gascons Centurions, Celts, Khazars,and  Royal Guardsman, etc doing there?

No doubt  some of a similar mindset will have been enthralled  by your effort and found it highly entertaining and useful.

Sorry , but I didn't.

Do you mean this competition and its equipment?

How would in know, or judge when it's not even started, and I am too small to play in it ?

What I can see from the map is that there are not many routes to the centre, that all paths are not equal. and there is an mysterious gap at roughly  the 8 o'lock position.

If you mean the rest of the game, the amount of competitions,I have an interest in, or access to, is diminishing, as are the rewards from them.

Also  it is not new, that like in the rest of the game ,there is so much cheating or manipulatiion going on  that it, and the competiitions are not real.

The current equipment is just a sales gimic, it takes too long,  and costs so much to acquire ,and  as in many other areas of the game, when acquired, though promising much, gives diddly squat advantage.

I further object to the gifting of supersized gear,town, and hero skins,but as this new competition is about to start there is probably no time to implement the following suggestions, even if agreeable.

1. Remove gifting. 

2. Restrict gifting to only those towns eligible to play Asgard, and have battled there.

3.Disable the bonuses against all those who are ineligible to go and battle.

xyz: this competition is not for the likes of us  ... it is for the top level players - to give them an incentive to keep on growing - to keep on trying to get that advantage in strength and bonuses over all the other top level players. (The top level players spent all that money getting this far and Plarium certainly doesn't want them to stop now). 

I am guessing we should be grateful that Plarium has invented a world away from the rest of us where they can do this high level slaughter for the special rewards they now need. The top level players are now much more likely to ignore the competitions we are involved in because the low level competitions do not give enough of the rewards and bonuses that the top level players now need to compete with each other.


( When was the last time you saw a 6 trillion influence player bother to farm uber tiles, or spend time hitting small numbers of t1 troops on tiles? )

Vorweg, ich schreibe nur Deutsch da ich meine Muttersprache benötige um das zu schreiben was ich auch sagen will, mein Englisch ist dafür einfach zu schlecht.

Das Event Asgard ist von der Idee gut, aber für viele Spieler ist es einfach nichts. Was soll ein 3T, 6T oder 10T Klan gegen die Jungs und Mädchen von zB WRET machen???

Das ist kein bashing gegen Plarium und/oder Geldspieler. Jeder hat halt das Recht für sein Geld zu kaufen was er möchte. Wenn ich mir Klopapier für 100 Teuros kaufen möchte möchte ich das einfach. Und ob es besser ist 100 Teuro in Klopapier oder das Spiel zu investieren wird die Zeit zeigen :)

Es müssten für kleinere Klans eigene Welten geben. Welten, wo sie halt nicht auf die Top Klans treffen. Hier würde aus meiner bescheidenen Sicht der Dinge auch die Möglichkeit bestehen das kleinere Spieler, die bisher auf den Einsatz von Echtgeld verzichtet haben angefüttert werden und Spaß am Spiel finden. Auch die Möglichkeit, das eben kleinere Spieler vom Chef dann besondere Gegenstände geschenkt bekommen würde meiner Meinung nach dem Spiel helfen.

So wie es jetzt ist werden nur Top Spieler in Asgard kämpfen ... schade drum
