Question: Conquering Territories

Postby Zulluh » Wed Jun 12, 2013 12:43 am


I searched for this info around the forum and wiki and didn't find it, so I believe its worth asking anyways.

I would really like to know what is the formula, or at least if you could teach the players how to calculate the amount of time needed for a single territory to be conquered.

I know it has something to do with population number on said territory, my army power or army number, the racial differences...

I don't know if you can give this info, but I believe an estimation would be really nice to have. Like Sun Tzu once said:

"The general who wins a battle makes many calculations in his temple ere the battle is fought. The general who loses a battle makes but few calculations beforehand. Thus do many calculations lead to victory, and few calculations to defeat"

And I love calculations! :D

Thank you for your time...

Much regards, Zulluh.

As far as I know the general calculation is very simple: Divide the population of the territory by the number of your army. Ie 1000 soldiers will conquer a territory with 15 000 people in 15 days. An army with 500 soldiers will do it in 30 days. If the time is very long they will abandon the conquest. I am not sure how long it is but I generally try to avoid conquests over 30 days. I have done 60 days (two turns) sometimes, but too many things can go wrong with long conquests.

Different types of troops have different valueas and I think the terrain type also counts, I am not sure about those values. I generally treat all army units as 1 per soldier. And Militia is much weaker at 0.2 per soldier. So 5000 militia only do as well as 1000 soldiers.

The Loyalty of the population multiplies the time needed to conquer a territory. The less loyal, the fastest the terrain will be conquered. That is why it can be easy to reconquer just-conquered territories with militia or a small army.
