Roman Conquest, the biggest update in the history of Caesar's Triumph, is now live. The mode is now in open Beta, featuring one playable map divided into 5 regions. The first playable region is Cartaginesis, where the players can fight for dominance over 50 available territories.
Same Goals, Different Battle Rules
Roman Conquest inherits much of the battle mechanics from the Battle of Sicily. But some things have changed...
The biggest change is the absence of a battle clock, meaning that you can now wage wars with no time restrictions. Secondly, players of all ranks share the same map. For now, you'll only be able to play on one map. Once the devs gather feedback, they'll start releasing new maps for you to play.
Thirdly, we've already mentioned in our previous article that Roman Conquest regions will have troop limits. Specifically, the Cartaginesis region will have a limit of 10,000 troops. You can, however, boost your troop limit up by 30% for 24 hours to achieve important strategic goals.
You should also be aware of the fact that your troops can’t retreat; once you deploy them, they'll stay on the land until they die. The last change reforms the functionality of the walls. Effectively, the walls now have HP and deal damage to enemies until they're destroyed.
How To Start Playing?
When you enter Cartaginesis you'll see 50 territories. Here you can see who controls the territory, what troops are on the territory, and how many Caesar Points each territory nets.
If you decide to attack, the Battlefield Survey will pop up and help you formulate your strategy. Don't forget that each territory brings you rewards, such as items and Denari. The longer you hold your territories, the more rewards you'll receive.
Politics, Horses & Centurions
Each territory also brings Caesar Points, which give you political power in Roman Conquest. The one player that has the most Caesar Points in-game acts as Caesar, which brings him/her specific benefits.
Note that these points are cumulative, meaning that you can't lose them even if you lose your territories. You can use the Caesar Points leaderboard to keep a close eye on other players' point accumulation.
The team is also reminding you to start using your War horses (if you have any). With them, you can deal massive damage to your enemies without using troops. And, consider using Centurions to increase the troop count on the land you own.
