A new element in Evony Age 2 is Historical Cities. These are NPC cities higher than level 10.
The Historical Cities are spread out across the map as such:
- Level 12 City (red flag), every 17 miles north/west/south/east.
- Level 16 City (blue flag), which is the state capital. Only 1 per state.
- Level 18 City (yellow flag), only 1 per server – “Atlantis” at map coordinates 0,0.
These cities allow you to send out more troops than normal from rally points. They also allow you to affect the nearby cities in your zone. You can do things like tax other cities, draft 10% of their troops, etc. I believe the idea will be that alliances will fight to conquer these cities and eventually huge wars over the control of these cities will ensue. I don’t know all the effects yet but will write more as I find out.
There have been several threads on the beta forums about the historical cities as some alliances have been gathering a lot of research.
Lord Skywlk from the alliance BAMF wrote a great thread on how to conquer a level 12 historical city.
DaFallen has a thread on Atlantis. Atlantis is the only Level 18 city in the game. YES they were the first alliance to take out a level 18 city! Congratz to DeFallen! You guys kick ass.
