A lot of people ask about how to get prestige in Evony.
One of the key ways to get prestige in Evony is to not have very big Town Halls and not run a lot of cities.
One of the key factors when getting prestige from battles is the size of all your Town Halls combined. If you have 5 cities with level 9 Town Halls you have a Town Hall rating for 45. If you had only two cities each with level 10 Town Halls you’d have a Town Hall rating for 20 and you’d gain prestige a lot faster.
One of the things you’ll notice is that 3 of the top 10 players on the beta server only have 1 city each. Most of these players have very little honor. They have been focusing on building barbarian towns near their city and attacking the barbarians over and over and over.
One trick you can do to get prestige is to simply not upgrade your Town Halls as much as possible. On one server I’m playing right now I’ve gone from being ranked 2,800 in prestige to being ranked 180. I use only two cities. I have big walls but small town halls. It even makes my cities look smaller on the map.
Another trick you can use is to build up several cities to build up your resources and your massive armies. Then move them all to one city and abandon your extra cities. This way you’ll have one city with one Town Hall and you’ll gain prestige faster from attacking level 10 barbarians.
Try these tricks out and let me know if you have any more tricks for gaining prestige fast.
