Subjugation happens when a player attacks another player's City. When the defender’s City’s Field HP is reduced to zero, the attacker who dealt the final blow becomes the master and the defender becomes their master’s vassal.Why you want to subjugate others
When you subjugate someone and they become your Vassal, their Power is halved and added to your Alliance’s Dominion Power and you can then capture territory adjacent to the Vassal’s Territory.
As well as the above, your Vassals will not be able to attack any of your Territory or be able to link Territory from their allies. You won’t be able to attack your Vassal, but you can station Reinforcements to deter other enemies.How to free yourself from subjugation and others
While being subjugated has its downsides, this does not mean the end of the war. Once you have been subjugated, you will have a 24 hour countdown timer on your City where you cannot attack or be attacked . You can still send out units and build up your troops while subjugated, so spend this time getting your units ready for when that timer drops. Make sure to bring your Arks back to help.
After 24 hours, your City may be contested by allies trying to free you, or by other enemies wishing to take your City and land for themselves.
After 7 days, if your Alliance has not been able to free you, you can attempt to free yourself. You do this by sending troops to attack your own City, to remove the invading forces. You can use the units within your City and any Arks that you have. Once you get your City’s Field HP down to zero, you will be free from subjugation.
If it was an Alliance wide Vassalage, which is when your Alliance Leader and all the Alliance Generals are all taken over by the same enemy Alliance, to get your Alliance free you must first free yourself. Then if you free your Alliance Leader and Generals in the same way, preferably with help from others in your Alliance, you can free the whole Alliance.How to Defend Yourself Against Subjugation
There are a few tactics to help make it harder for others to subjugate you.
First, be sure to set up Defense Bases around your City. They have high HP and if you surround your City with them, they will have to take out one of them first before they can attack your city directly. This also gives time for your Alliances to link from your land too!
Build a Watchtower in your City. They let you know when an enemy is approaching and upgrading the Watchtower will give you the attack information sooner.
Build Ballistae in your City. When you’re under attack, you can active each Ballista in your City for a set amount of time. Once activated, Ballistae will fire prior to the Startup phase of every battle that takes place in your City, inflicting a fixed amount of damage to every Monster in the attacking Unit. You can activate all of the Ballistae at the same time to maximize damage over a short period, or you can activate them at intervals so that you cause less damage over a longer period. Note that Ballistae have a 3 hour cooldown after their active period has ceased, it is therefore advisable to only activate your Ballistae when incoming attacks are imminent. Upgrading each Ballista will increase the damage they deal.
You can Fortify your City for a short amount of time. During this time, your City, Bases, and Arks will not take Siege damage. At the same time, you are unable to send out any units or Arks. It takes three hours’ setup to Fortify your city, but you can set up a daily fortification. To set up a one off fortification or the daily, head to the Fortification Gate in your City. It’s in the wall that separates your outer resource production area from your inner wall buildings.
Note: You can increase your Fortification time by increasing your VIP level.
If you are away for a long time, you can set up a Shield to protect your City from subjugation. This has slightly different rules to that of Fortification. As with Fortification, it takes three hours to set up your Shield. Arks will be returned to your City once the Shield period starts. Note that Bases can be attacked and destroyed while in this mode. If you are an Alliance Lord or a General in your Alliance, you will not be able to use a Shield. You must assign the role to another within your Alliance.
