NOTE: Stage 2 will begin on 27th November 2013 and end on 9th December 2013.
Welcome back to Stage 2! You have conquered lands and raided your enemies, but now the map is reset once more to welcome a new phase in the Second Campaign of Clan Wars.
Prepare to discard everything you’ve learned in the game so far, because the rules have changed. Large land grabs or endless raids will not propel you to victory this time. Instead, now you must stay close to a new and very important element on the map to win the stage…
Watch the video below and read on to learn more about the specifics of Stage 2.
Stage Two: Train Robbery
In Stage Two, there is only one objective: the trains.
At the start of the stage, several of these trains will appear on the map in different locations. Once per day, they will move to the next adjacent province, towards a predetermined destination. On top of that, all players will be able to see the next province the trains will occupy on the following day.
[UPDATED] Train Robbery will be preceded by a short ‘re-division’ phase, which will turn all provinces into landing zones for the duration of one day. The map will not be wiped in this process, so all provinces you may control at the end of Stage I will be in your possession at the beginning of Stage II. If a landing battle results in a draw, the attacker will be considered the winner.
Victory Point earnings
Victory Points are gained by controlling a province containing a train. Any clan that owns a province with a train will receive 292 Victory Points each turn for each province they own that has a train currently on it. (i.e. 2 provinces = 584 Victory Points per turn). Any Victory Points gained in this way are permanent, and will not be erased.
Clans that are controlling the key provinces will have to be alert for any attempts to capture it, to prevent other clans from stealing their source of Victory Points. However, clans who are successful in defending the province from their attackers will enjoy a decent rate of Victory Point earnings daily.
Aside from capturing the provinces containing the trains outright, clans can also opt to ‘intercept’ the trains by capturing the provinces that will host those caravans before they arrive. However, do note that these provinces will not award Victory Points until the trains have appeared in them.
Fame Point earnings
Fame Points are still earned by participating in battles, and most Fame Point multipliers are still in effect in Stage 2.
The base Fame Point amount awarded is dependent on the total EXP earned per battle by the winning team, which is divided equally amongst its players.
A x1.1 Fame Points multiplier is applied for all battles conducted in Stage 2.
All mainland province battles will give a x5.0 Fame Points multiplier.
These include battles on provinces without the trains on them. Any mainland province in the Global Map will award the x5.0 multiplier.
At the end of Stage 2, the top 3 clans based on total Victory Points earned will receive a multiplier for all clan members:
1st place: x3.0 multiplier
2nd place: x2.0 multiplier
3rd place: x1.5 multiplier
Apart from primary factors that can greatly influence the overall Fame Points gained, there are also secondary factors that can affect it in more subtle ways:
Train Drover: Each clan that controls at least one province containing a train will receive a x1.1 Fame Points multiplier for every win in a battle within that province. Only players that have participated in these battles will receive the multiplier.
Combo: Each clan that controls more than two provinces containing a train each will receive a x1.2 Fame Points multiplier for each win in battle Only players that have participated in these battles will receive the multiplier. (may not have to be held in said provinces with caravan trains).
Ambush: Any clan that attacks another clan controlling at least one province with a train on it will be granted a x1.2 Fame Points multiplier for all battles (either win or lose). Only players that have participated in these battles will receive the multiplier.
It is important to note that these effects are cumulative. For example, if a player wins a mainland province battle (x5.0) during Stage 2 of the campaign (x1.1), and is part of the clan that wins that stage (x3.0), the resulting formula would be [(Base Fame Points) x 5 x 1.1 x 3].
