Territory Control Preview
The sprawling depths of Malu are radiant as they are vindictive. Fortify your defenses by merging capable guilds into commanding factions and twisting remote territories to your will. Explore more about our dynamic approach to factions and territories.
Growing Up Guilds
Power is not born overnight and neither are factions. Before your influence extends to the far reaches of the planet, you will first have to establish a component guild as well as share a stable relationship with other friendly guilds. Already there? Perfect. Next, take at least two guilds who have gained enough experience to begin a faction. The leaders of each guild must vote and agree to merge into one united faction. The once before guilds are now considered divisions of the faction, and a committee of previous guild leaders rules each faction.
The Path to War and Peace
Tyrant or peacemonger. The decision is up to you and your faction’s ruling class. Choose to devour all in your path by engulfing new lands and obliterating weaker foes, and find yourself overwhelmed in the battle for your life. Decide to maintain peaceful relations with other factions, and valuable territories may vanish while more powerful factions take advantage of your diplomatic nature. Conflict and concord are in the hands of your committee.
Unlocking Territory Control
The secret to valuable territory control rests within your faction’s committee’s hands. Strategic planning is necessary to reap the highest benefits and avoid the costly risks. Once you have weighted the gains verses the burdens of growth and collected enough materials, you can now create a territory obelisk.
These towering pillars will act as a center point for territory expansion by expanding your area by a set amount. A wide range of obelisks will radiate varying territory control ranges along with diverse defenses. Take great care in dispatching obelisks since they cannot function until they are fully charged and can be vulnerable to attack during this time. Obelisk location is also important because they extend different types of benefits when placed in proximity to other obelisks.
Why Gain Territory?
Because bigger is better. In this uncertain world, the only stability comes in knowing that anything can happen at any time. Bigger territory means better defenses against the unexpected. While the enemy can still infiltrate your borders, they can only damage your obelisks. They cannot attack your faction directly until you decide to join the fight.
There is also no better way to boast your faction’s dominance than letting the entire world see a legion of commanding obelisks dotting your boundaries. And yes, there is safety in numbers. The more territory obelisks under your control, the more freedom your faction will have to flourish inside your expanding borders. Grow your territory; your empire will be stronger for it.
