Rules of the tournament

- Automatic nomad attacks are performed against each player every 10 hours, for a total of 50 waves. The first wave is an exception and will last for 17 hours. It will begin 1 hour after the start of the tournament.
- Each nomad wave will hit in an exact hour according to a schedule. The schedule for all 50 waves will be available to all participants ingame.
- For the duration of the tournament, the following Skills and Talents cannot be obtained by the Great People: Logistician, Colonizer, Resource Merchant, Transport Expert, Field Healer, Healer Scientist, Military Post Manager.
- The strength of the attacking nomad armies will depend on the networth of the attacked player. The more networth a players has, the stronger armies will attack him.
- For every defeated barbarian camp in the last 10 hours the player will get a 1% increase in the strength of the nomad attacks. The expected strength of the nomad attack will not be limited.
- Battles are calculated the same way as in the rest of the realms in IO. Nomad units do not have carrying capacity, they always loot everything in a fortress siege. Units of players have standard carrying capacity.
- Nomad attack types follow a random principle and will not take turns.
- If the attacking nomad army wins a Fortress siege, all player’s buildings’ levels are dropped by 1 and their base net worth points cost is deducted from player’s points. If a building is under construction, the level in progress is suspended and its net worth points are deducted. Houses’ level cannot drop below 5 in the Capital, and below 1 in the rest of the Provinces. Buildings’ levels will not be dropped in the event of an attack from another player.
- All players have a maximum of 50 lives. For each lost battle against nomads 1 life is deducted. If a player loses all lives, eligibility to compete for any of the big or special rewards is lost, too. Lives are not lost for losing battles against players.
- If the nomad attack is sent to a province which has not been annexed by the player (e.g. attack going to Province 3, but the player has Province 2 and Province 1), the attack will hit a random province, annexed by the player (either Province 1 or Province 2).
- If the nomad attack is sent to more than one province, but the player has only one annexed province, the armies combine and hit the existing province.
- For each successful defensive victory against nomads each player will receive war income equal to 50% of the annihilated enemy armies in gold equivalent divided equally between wood and iron. This income will be available for only 10 hours. Successful victories against players will not generate war income.
- All players start with Fortress level 1, with 25 garrisoned archers.
- The maximum count of provinces each player can have is 9: the Capital + 8 Annexed Provinces; players cannot annex or take vassals outside of their exclusive zone.
- Instant options - army training, construction and research, as well as transport between provinces, will be available under nomad attack. Buildings, technologies and armies can be ordered in queue even under nomad attack.
- However when a player is under attack from another player the standard rules concerning locking attacks will apply.
- The army upkeep will vary depending on the percent that the army represents from the total networth of the player.
- Market prices will be fixed by their base equivalent and will not change during the whole season. Only an option for resource exchange will be available (even while under attack). There is fixed market commission - 15% (fifteen).
- Governments are disabled (by default, players start with a neutral government without any bonuses and negatives).
