City Battle Mechanics
The main objective of every City Battle is to destroy the opposing Clan's Central Tower and is the primary condition for victory. But there can be other conditions for victory, depending on what type of City Battle and if a Clan is on offense or defense. Listed here are the conditions for victory that must be met within the 3 hour time limit of each type of City Battle.
- Clans on offense must destroy the defending Clan's Central Building.
- Clans on defense must prevent their Central Building from being destroyed.
- Clans on defense can also destroy the opposing Clan's Central Building to win.
- Clans attacking an unoccupied State must kill all mobs in the battlefield map.
The Battlefield Map
The City Battle Map is a 1 kilometer square battlefield with the offense and defense Clan Bases situated at diagonally opposite corners. All players start inside their respective bases at the beginning of each City Battle, or when they teleport into the Battlefield Map.
Each base is surrounded by an Outer Wall with 3 gates, with each gate flanked by 2 Arrow towers.]
Inside the Outer Wall is the Central Building surrounded by 4 Arrow Towers . And behind the Central Building is the Revival Point, flanked by 2 Guard Towers , the Transfer Field, and the Battlefield NPC.
Both bases are connected by 3 roads at their gates, the East, West, and Center Road . There is 1 Arrow Tower per Clan situated along the East and West Roads, and 2 Arrow Tower per Clan along the Center Road . Catapults can only travel inside the Outer Wall of a base, and along these roads.
When viewing the Battlefield Map, Players will be able to see the positions of all ally Players and Catapults, but not the positions of enemy Players and Catapults.
The Central Building
The main objective for both Clans to defend or destroy, this structure is what the City Battle all boils down to. The Central Building can be damaged by only Players and Catapults, with Catapults being the better options as they deal significantly more damage.
The Arrow Towers
Arrow Towers are the main defensive structures used in the Battlefield Map. Players can build an Arrow Tower in their preset location by going to an Arrow Tower position, clicking on it, and selecting to build any of 3 types of Arrow Towers . Arrow Towers that have been destroyed during the City Battle cannot be rebuilt.
There are 28 Arrow Towers located in the Battlefield Map, 14 for each Clan. For each Clan, 4 of Arrow Towers are located inside their base, surrounding the Central Building . 6 are located along the Outer Wall, flanking each gate. And 4 are located along the 3 roads connecting the bases, 1 along the East Road , 1 along the West Road , and 2 along the Center Road .
It is also important to keep in mind that during the 30 second building time of any Arrow Tower , it has only 100,000 Health Points and 0 Defense, making it more vulnerable to being destroyed. It is unadvisable to begin creating an Arrow Tower while there are any opposing players in the vicinity of the Arrow Tower position.
Catapults are the main offensive weapons used in the Battlefield Map and can be found behind the Central Building, in front of the Revival Point. This location also serves as their starting point. They fire automatically at any target in their range, but only attack Arrow Towers , Transfer Columns, and the Central Building , and nothing else.
There are a total of 4 Catapults available to each Clan. Players can operate Catapults by purchasing a Catapult ticket from the Battlefield Vendor for 20,000 Yuan, standing close any of their Catapults, then clicking on the Catapult Ticket. 5 seconds after using the Catapult Ticket, the Catapult it was used on will begin to automatically follow the Player.
Reminders when operating a Catapult
- Catapults cannot be targeted, and cannot be destroyed. However, if the Player operating or being followed by the Catapult dies, it will instantly return to its starting point inside the Clan Base. Players will need to purchase another Catapult Ticket to operate it again.
- Players operating Catapults will see a Red Symbol appear over their Character's heads. This symbol is visible to friendly and enemy players, making it easy to distinguish any Player operating a Catapult.
- The movement speed of a Catapult is only 6 meters per second, and Players operating them must be mindful to not stray too far away from the Catapult following them, or it will instantly return to its starting point once it gets too far away.
- The ideal distance for a player to be from the Catapult that is following him is indicated by a marker on the upper left corner of his interface. This marker is only visible to Players that are operating Catapults. Green is for a good distance; gradually turning Red if the distance is becoming bad.
- Catapults can only travel inside Bases, and along the 3 Roads connecting both Clan Bases, and will be unable to follow Players that move outside those areas.
The Transfer Field and Columns
Transfer Fields and Columns are used as a quick means of transportation between Clan Bases and Arrow Tower Positions along the 3 Roads. The Transfer Field is located inside the Clan Base, directly in front of the Revival Point, while 4 Transfer Columns are located beside each Arrow Tower Position located along the 3 Roads in the Battlefield Map.
Players can bind themselves to a Transfer Column, and then use the Transfer Field inside the Clan Base to be automatically transported to the last Transfer Column they saved at. This is usually used upon a Character's death, at which point they return to the Revival Point, and can step into the Transfer Field to quickly teleport to the last Transfer Column they touched.
Once a Player has been teleported, he will need to attune himself again to a Transfer Column before he can use the Transfer Fields again. Also, Transfer Columns can be attacked by Players and Catapults and do not regenerate Health Points. Once destroyed, Transfer Columns can only be rebuilt 5 minutes later.
