ATTENTION: By using the support button in the support bridge screen you are able to sent troops needed to win the battle round. However troops will not arrive automatically at the right time. You still have to send troops that will arrive before the battle round begins. You should keep this in mind while selecting the castle / fortress from where you are sending your troops.
The support bridge is a way to organize your defenses, the system calculates the amount of incoming troops and checks if at the time of particular battle round, will there be over 100(castle)/500(fortress) units on defender side. Should this be the case the system assumes that if the attacker side also reaches this minimum requirement, the battle round will be successfully defended and a next one will take place. The user can manually edit rounds if he thinks that he will have recruited troops up until that point etc. Using the orange icon can be used for showing the other support bridge participants that the battle round will be taken care of or not.
This feature will facilitate the creation of support bridges. You can check the overview to see how long the defenders will hold out and whether your support bridge has been properly created. You can see the upcoming battle rounds in a color scheme. Hit the publish button and share the bridge link with other players so they can help you in the creation of the support bridge.
- Battle rounds marked in green signify that you will have enough units stationed in the castle at the beginning of this round to carry the battle into the next round.
- Battle rounds marked in red signify that you will NOT have enough units stationed in the castle at the beginning of this round, so that the enemy will emerge victorious.
- Battle rounds marked in yellow signify that a player with whom you have shared the link has marked that he will send enough units for the start of this battle round to extend the bridge.
You can change the colors manually by tapping. By hitting the “save changes” button, you can make these changes visible for everyone who has access to the link.
You can automatically calculate whether the support bridge will work with the help of the “calculate transits” button (taking into account all units already stationed here, as well as those in transit). After calculating the transits, you must hit the “save changes” button so that your allies can see the current state of the support bridge.
You can select which transits will be taken into account with the automatic calculation via the settings button in the top right corner (the selection is via diplomacy status).
Beware: The units that are currently being recruited will not be taken into account.
Support bridge with arrival time calculator
Once the feature „Support bridge with arrival time calculator“ is activated on your world and your app is on version 6.12.0, you can send defenses directly to your friend with the help of the arrival time calculator.
Originally by clicking the „Support“-Button in the support bridge, the „Send Support“ view will be opened. You still have to look for the best habitat and see if from there units can be sent to the selected battle round, which can be very time consuming.
This is now simplified with the combination of the defensive bridge and the arrival time calculator. By clicking on the „Support“-Button in the support bridge, the arrival time calculator will be directly be opened. The time of the battle is automatically selected (-1 minute by default, so that your troops will definitely arrive on time) and the habitat that fits best will be displayed. If you now click on this habitat, the „Send Support“-view will be opened and you can directly send defense.
