Resource Wars (2016)
Resource Wars is an event that started on the 6th of May, 2016 that was used to re-distribute the resources of the New World. The Presidents create lists of regions and assign resources to them. The resource selection can be changed throughout the event. Selection on its own is not enough, though, as countries will need to win Resource Tokens to gain the resources.
The 5 new resources are : Wolfram, Titanium, Cobalt, Magnesium, Neodymium.
The addition of the new resources will impact the distribution of current resources as in the following table:
|Industry\Rarity||Very Common||Common||Uncommon||Rare||Very Rare|
|House||Sand (33)||Wood (25)||Clay (19)||Limestone (13)||Granite (7)|
|Weapons||Iron (53)||Aluminium (39)||Oil (31)||Saltpeter (24)||Rubber (17)|
|Food||Fish (79)||Fruits (66)||Cattle (52)||Grain (38)||Deer (24)|
|New||Magnesium (19)||Titanium (14)||Wolfram (10)||Cobalt (7)||Neodymium (4)|
Each type of resource will have a different impact on the productivity bonuses based on their scarcity:
|Rarity||Very Common||Common||Uncommon||Rare||Very Rare|
The President or Dictator in charge can claim a resource for one of his Country’s original Regions using Resource Tokens. Once a Country wins a Resource Token, a resource from the resource pool will be assigned to the eligible Region of the Country.
Using the resource assignation screen, the President/Dictator can pick one or more resources for each of the Country’s original Regions. Once a Resource Token is available for each resource available in the resource pool, at that moment the Regions will be processed from top to bottom and the wanted resources from right to left until an eligible Region is found for that resource. If the resource cannot be placed or there are no resources in the pool, the token is lost. Tokens cannot be donated between countries.
Once a resource is claimed, it will be displayed on the list, in the "Allocated" tab.
Resource Placement Rules
- Rare or very rare resources of the same industry cannot be placed within a specific radius from each other (the restriction applies to each region type separately, a very rare and rare resource of the same industry may be placed in the same region). A Resource War map is available in order to plan the strategy and see how others’ decisions may impact it.
- Up to 4 resources can be placed in the same Region.
- A Country can not assign more resources than the number of its historical (original) regions or 4 (if they have less historical regions).
The Resource Pool
The resources currently available and the ones that will be made available in the next 12 hours are shown in the “Resource Pool” tab.
A token is awarded to a Country for each 30 000 Domination Points (the sum of the Domination Points over all the Divisions) that the Country gathers in direct Battles and Resistance Wars (Civil Wars are not counted). A weekly Country Domination Points leaderboard is now online and a special “Domination Points till next token” leaderboard will be available during the event.
For those who want to go the extra mile to help out their Country, during the event individual objectives were available on the Battlefield, that once completed allowed the player to switch Divisions for the remaining of the round. When fighting in a “foreign” Division, the player has his hit capped by the current max hit in the Division.
