Overview of the new Features in this years Annual Special "Rise of Alliances"
Boosted village: All resource fields in your starting village start at level 10. You immediately have enough culture points and settlers to found the next two villages
Your hero no longer goes on adventures, but will still lead your armies into battle. Hero items, as well as auctions and silver, have also been removed.
Strength in numbers! Members of each alliance can contribute resources to unlock alliance-wide bonuses.
Victory conditions are the same: Gain as many Victory Points as possible
“Refer a friend” bonus only applies once a friend has 4 villages (instead of two).
Defense points are awarded to the players reinforcing a village, instead of only to the owner.
Regions with weaker artifacts produce more Victory Points than stronger artefacts.
In order to settle outer regions, adjacent regions need to be sufficiently populated first. And no, there are no more water buckets to revive your hero with!
