Resistance wars are wars started by citizens who want to free regions of their citizenship country from occupation.
Starting a resistance war
The tools to organize a resistance appears for all citizens who are located in a conquered region.
You and nine other citizens can support a resistance war. You all receive the Resistance Hero achievement if the region is liberated.
You can only support and start a resistance war if:
- you are located in the region you wish to liberate;
- you have 1000 currency;
- ten (10) citizens support the resistance war;
- the region was conquered more than 24 hours ago;
- the resistance force of the country is not currently fighting a resistance war in another region in the same conquering country;
- the region is not involved in a campaign.
The resistance war starts automatically when the tenth citizen supports the resistance war.
If the region's original country reconquers the region (by normal war or natural enemy) before the resistance war begins, the citizens that supported the resistance war will receive their 1000 citizen currency back.
(For example, South Australia is occupied by Indonesia. Eight people support a resistance war so it has not yet started. If Australia, the original region owner, conquers the region by a traditional battle, the eight citizens that gave 1000 citizen currency (AUD in this case) to starting the resistance war get their money back).
If the resistance war fail (occupant defend the region) the citizens that supported the resistance war will not be able to support another resistance war for next 7 days. They will see Support button, but when click on it they will receive message that explains why they can't support the resistance war.
Additionally, citizens can show their approval of a resistance war by voting for it at no cost. These votes do not count as support. If you voted or supported resistance, you will be informed when the resistance war starts via alert.
Since the day 1785 the next modification was brought to the Resistance wars:
If a country starts a Resistance War against an invader and loses the battle, the resistance force will have to wait 24 hours before starting a new Resistance War against the same invader.
This cool down period will be applied to all the original regions of the countries under the occupation of that invader.
Fighting in a resistance war
To fight you must reside in the country that owns the region where resistance war is active. The fight process is the same as in normal battles. The only difference is that you must choose a side you want to battle for. The side is chosen from the war page:
