GPA - Conquering Villages


Getting an administrator (senator, chief, chieftain):
In order to get an administrator you need to research him in your academy level 20 (you also need a rally point level 5 as Teuton or level 10 as Gaul and Roman). After this you can train him in your palace or residence as long as you haven't already trained settlers there.

  • The Senator (Roman) is very eloquent and persuasive; he can lower the loyalty by 20% to 30% each time.
  • The Chief (Teuton) is especially cheap; he can lower the loyalty by 20 to 25%.
  • The Chieftain (Gauls) is 20% faster than the others; he can lower the loyalty by 20 to 25%.

These values for the administrators are for the optimum case, due to the morale bonus they will most likely not be like this when taking over a village. After the loyalty reaches 0% the administrator who did this will vanish and the troops guarding him will stay in the village as defence.


Conquerable villages:
Only villages that are not the capital of a player can be conquered, regardless of where the palace is.

Hint: You can only conquer a village when the residence or palace is destroyed, you have enough culture points, the village you are attacking is not the capital and not the player's only village.

Attack waves:
The conquering should consist of waves because sending everything in only one attack is very foolish. The first wave should be the one with the "cleaner" which kills all defenders, afterwards the catapults destroying the residence or palace followed by the administrators.
Assuming that you own 3000 Imperians, 60 catapults and 2 Senators:

1. 2700 Imperians should be sent as a normal attack to avoid trouble ("cleaner").
2. 150 Imperians and some catapults should be sent to destroy the residence or palace. This should be a normal attack or the catapults won't shoot!
3. 150 Imperians and some Senators should be sent. This should be a normal attack or the Senator won't do his job.

Repeat steps 1 through 3 as often as needed to check whether the victim rebuilt his residence or palace!

Hint: All tribe specific buildings (e.g. city wall, trapper or brewery) will get destroyed after a successful conquer and have to be rebuilt. Any villages settled or conquered by the newly conquered village will continue to occupy the build slots in the newly conquered village. Furthermore conquering a village from a smaller account will lead to a decrease of 1 level for each building.

After the attacks:

Rebuild the residence or palace as fast as possible to raise the loyalty again and put some decent defenders including some spies into the village. The loyalty of a village rises by the level of the palace or residence each hour. For example, a level 5 residence or palace will raise the loyalty by 5% in one hour.
