    Introduction to Empire Wars

    This guide was made possible by the hard work of players updating the UE Wiki
    and sharing between each other in-game, on Line, and by other means.
    Thank you everyone who has contributed!


    Empire wars or EvE (empire versus empire) are a fundamental part of game-play in Underworld Empire. A player must be a part of an empire to participate and must join the wars to contribute and receive wars. Joining the wars requires 10 stamina and gives player experience, class experience, class coins, possible drops from shadow broker upgrades, the ability to complete daily achievements and the chance at crate shard drops.

    Setting up Wars


    Power Index and Leaderboards:

    - A power index is calculated for each empire and is updated after every battle, and leaderboards are ordered using the power index. As an example, the number one empire in Legend League will have the highest power index, and the final empire in Bronze League will have the lowest power index.

    - The calculation for power index takes into account each empire’s previous 50 battles and more recent activity has a greater weighting. If the winning empire had a lower power index at the start of the battle, more points may be awarded to the winning empire.


    Matchmaking:

    - Within each League, empires are divided into “pools” of similar power index. Empires are most likely to fight other Empires of similar power index/leaderboard position within their own pool, but can be matched against Empires in other pools. The farther away two Empire’s pools are, the less likely they are to fight one another.

    - Sometimes there are an odd number of Empires to be matched within a given League. In this event, the ‘odd’ empire will be matched with an Empire in the League directly below (i.e. Empire at the bottom of Legend will be matched with an Empire at the top of Diamond)

    Events

    EvE Heists/mini-events

    World War

    Stop talking,
    I don't know what I'm doing!!?!!?


    Relax, it's going to be okay, maybe even fun.

    • Click on the empire tab during the war times (wars are at 5am, 11am, 5pm and 11pm EST). Your empire can choose to be in any or none of the available time slots. Click the left option and it will take you to the join war screen. Join by paying 10 stamina and you're in. Wars last 2 hours or when one team annihilates the entire opposing team/buildings.

    • Many empires use a caller - an officer or other player to direct the war via empire chat. Recently a bomb symbol and crosshairs have been added to help as well. When in doubt, ask on empire chat or Line what the target is and someone will help. Conventionally, A is your side and B is theirs, buildings are numbered like a phone pad 1-2-3 is top row, 4-5-6 is middle, 7-8-9 is the bottom. "Demo" is HW/Terminators or anyone avoiding hitting people at the moment (hit the green building health or blue shields). "Killers" are for anyone not conserving tokens and typically the targets are defenders unless otherwise specified. Each empire is different, ask plenty of questions - it's better for everyone to understand and work together than mass chaos and confusion. "Decap" or "Cap" is the amount of health your assassins/reapers can execute at, be mindful of this to save tokens. Going "rogue" is often counterproductive and can lead to removal from the empire.

    • "I'm dead, what happened? What next?" By hitting opponents, being attacked, or by status effects your in-war health can diminish. Below 200 you are wounded and at 0 you are dead. While alive you can use armor packs on screen or in the armories, when dead you can use a health pack on screen or in the hospital. Your empire starts with a limited number of these and only the health packs regenerate over time. Be sure to know if healing/armoring is appropriate - rogue healers are problems and often kicked out of the empire. You can increase your health with the health stat directly or by using insignias/LTs (recommended) - be sure to have your health loadout equipped BEFORE the war begins and then switch to your active loadout after joining.

    • Each class has its own skills (see below) and advantages.

    • Your EvE points are determined by the buildings your empire has demolished (each has its own point value) and the number of enemies killed (worth 1 point unless they heal). Most points wins and a tie is a loss for both.

    Buildings

    There are currently 9 building locations available in a 3x3 grid. After an empire is created, it begins with a headquarters and 8 warehouses. These warehouses must be upgraded into the other available buildings with cash and item donations.

    Donations


    Go to empire tab, check news for possible updates, click HQ tab, either use Donate button or select appropriate building to donate cash and items. Cash donations can be increased with Victoria Vanderbilt and laundered money. Item donations can be increased with shadow tokens and Victoria's ice chain. There are donation achievements/goals for Empire donations of cash and items. Monthly and lifetime donations for empire members can be viewed under the running figure tab on the empire home screen.

      ($30million/$300million+HQ2/$3billion+HQ3/$6billion+HQ4)




    Upgrade Strategy

    As more feedback comes in, this section can be expanded. A general strategy is to upgrade your HQ-armory-hospital and then cherry pick a few upgrades before coming back to the HQ. Upgraded HQs allow access to better overall upgrades and increase the daily donation amounts which means getting them paid off much quicker. Having the donation priorities can allow an empire to prioritize items across 3 different upgrades while focusing cash on the current goal. Shadow Broker and Philanthropist are also very helpful for expediting empire growth. The research lab and nukes can be helpful but shields/armor (Hardened Bunkers) often help more in the long term for anyone considering their empire planning. Building an empire can be a lot of fun but it does take a lot of time, effort, and patience.



    Empire Building Super Powers

    These are empire buffs that last for 24 hours. The progress bar is charged up to 100% by players completing the daily goals/achievements (click on trophy icon next to your level bar). Once charged up, it takes an officer to activate the super powers and this can be done by going to HQ tab showing your building layout - clicking the desired building -then choosing the top tab "activate superpowers". Each has their own benefits and are worth considering relative to empire rank/tier.

    Headquarters
    1) +30% critical damage mitigation
    2) +30% splash damage mitigation
    3) Cap incoming damage by the higher of 2000 or 33% current health

    Hospital
    1) +1000 EvE health for all members
    2) +20% debuff resist to all players
    3) 3 random players start the battle as juggernauts (add the lower of 10000 or max health to player max health).

    Armory
    1) All members start EvE awake with fast token regen timer.
    2) +2 extra starting tokens for every member.

    Sniper Tower
    1) Add the higher of 200 or 5% player attack to all players in EvE.
    2) Add damage buff to all players in EvE:
    +10% chance to deal 1.5 damage, 6% for 2x, 3% for 3x, 1% for 4x

    Hardened Bunker
    1) To directly attack either buner, the defenders in both bunkers must be eliminated.
    2) Timebomb, Booby Trap, Big Gun, Nuclear Bomb can still do damage to the bunkers.

    Research Lab
    1) Grant visibility to opponent's bottom row and center building.
    2) Block the opponent's visibility to any building but the frontline, even if the opponent has the ability 1)

    Nuclear Silo
    1) Deal 30% of max building health+shield as building damage to the main target and 15% to splashed targets
    2) +50% chance to apply strong napalm (30 dmg/min) and normal plague (2% health) to affected players.

    Re: Community Empire Wars Guide

    Classes

    There are currently 8 classes available to play in Underworld Empire.

    These are separated into
    Tier One: heavy weapons, assassins, enforcers, and snipers;
    Tier Two: terminators, reapers, titans, and ghosts.

    Class can be chosen after level 15? at the bottom of the home screen in the Class Power tab. Choosing your class here only affects your class in EvE and doesn't currently impact other areas of the game. (A player is able to choose their class for bossfights for each individual boss entered.) Tier One classes acquire experience from bosses at a 10stam/1exp rate while Tier Two classes gain it at 200/1. Choosing the Tier 1 class in a boss will give you experience in both classes if the Tier 2 class is unlocked. Tier One classes receive experience at a fixed rate from empire wars (7xp) while Tier Two classes receive progressively more depending on the level of the class. Leveling any class allows a player to level their veteran level with the corresponding benefits.

    Class Levels (xp)

    Level 1 up to 999xp
    Level 2 1,000 to 4,999xp
    Level 3 5,000 to 9,999xp
    Level 4 10,000 to 19,999xp
    Level 5 20,000 to 39,999xp
    Level 6 40,000 to 79,999xp
    Level 7 80,000 to 159,999xp
    Level 8 160,000 to 319,999xp
    Level 9 320,000 to 499,999xp
    Level 10 500,000xp or more


    Veteran Effect
    1 +10 CC, 15% Damage bonus
    2 +13 CC, 20% Damage bonus
    3 +17 CC, 22% Damage bonus, 5% Damage Mitigation, 2% Health bonus
    4 +21 CC, 24% Damage bonus, 30% Damage Mitigation, 4% Health bonus
    5 +25 CC, 25% Damage bonus, 35% Damage Mitigation, 6% Health bonus
    6 +26 CC, 25% Damage bonus, 35% Damage Mitigation, 7% Health bonus
    7 +27 CC, 25% Damage bonus, 35% Damage Mitigation, 8% Health bonus
    8 +28 CC, 25% Damage bonus, 35% Damage Mitigation, 9% Health bonus
    9 +29 CC, 25% Damage bonus, 35% Damage Mitigation, 10% Health bonus

    The Damage Mitigation % and Damage % apply in EvE only. Note that Veteran skill is shared between all classes


    ***Quick Note***


    Regardless of class, having a loadout dedicated to health insignias (and Consigliere or Centurion if you have him) is a good idea. Seat this loadout between/before wars with other passively beneficial LTs like Ariel, Joaquin, Gunner etc. if you like but definitely consider having Gunslinger seated to be sure - it's always nice to start the war with a couple extra tokens. Once you've joined the war, switch to your active use loadouts and enjoy the boost in EvE health.


    ****Quicker Note****


    We could use a bit more on the specific classes, more feedback will only help deepen the thread,
    please feel free to comment or message me/GGs/mods


    ***Quickest Note***

    Definitely consider using Layla regardless of class

    Heavy Weapons

    The Heavy Weapons player brings firepower to the battlefield in large doses!

    General damage boosting LTs will help demo damage. Splash LTs will help flamethrower, dynamite and explosives. Critical LTs won't help demo damage but will contribute to offensive damage.

    Upgrade Strategy

    Heavy Weapons or HW should consider demolition and booby traps as their first priority. Building demo is always needed and traps have become very important in taking down active healers. After that, flamethrower or dynamite+burn+explosives or working on the passives is always beneficial. With the advent of shields, collateral damage has acquired usefulness and so all of the HW abilities should eventually be acquired.

    *If planning on switching to Terminator, consider saving 33,000cc total in order to open the Tier 2 class and upgrade fully to Grenade 3

    Terminators

    Terminators are the worst nightmare for buildings with many enemies inside them.
    They have devastating attacks that can damage each enemy inside a building
    as well as the building itself in one attack.

    Lieutenants:

    Fleur: Class 2 experience boost

    Dozer, Backfire - increased demo damage

    Red Countess, Poppy - help bring buildings down fast in case there is a healer

    Rocket, Morningstar, Anthony - increase splash chance and damage

    Upgrade Strategy

    Terminators should strongly consider upgrading Grenade to level 3 first. This will give the best shield and building damage. After this, consider going the Bury+Big Gun vs. Napalm+Napalm Bomb+Third Degree routes first. If you win a lot and have faster wars consider the bury route first, if you don't always win and wars can go longer consider doing napalm first. Both are good, just depends on which you prefer to do first. Collapse is good for some extra damage after upgrading the others. Time bomb is only useful in situations where a nuke or active healer has left a small amount of health on the building - preferentially use it on dead opponents in order to avoid having it stimmed off by an enforcer.

    Player Types

    There are currently 5 types of players available in Underworld Empire: free agents, regular empire members, officers, underboss and boss.

    Free agents can play in the rest of the game but are excluded from empire wars, donations, empire chats, and viewing the empire leaderboards.

    Regular empire members can play in all aspects of the game including contributing to their empire development, participating in wars and increasing their empire ranking on the boss points leaderboard. Regular members are indicated with white text in empire chat.

    Officers can enjoy everything regular members can plus allow new members to join the empire, mark buildings for demo and attack, arrange empire buildings, set up donation priorities and post news. Officers are indicated with green text in empire chat and stripes on the empire home screen.

    Underboss and Boss are able to do the things an officer can plus promote/demote/remove players, set the empire description, set recruitment and change the empire banner. Underboss and Boss have the same abilities except the boss can demote or promote the underboss. Bosses/underbosses are indicated with orange text in empire chat and have gold/silver stars on the empire home screen.

    EvE FAQ

    What influences my token timer?
    At this point, joining a war will modify your token timer to the level of your empire's armory. There is currently no need to use a "wake-up shot" anymore. A stim-pack or being attacked will also do the same. Losing either the armory or HQ will return your token timer to 5 minutes per token and there will be a loss of some conserved tokens.

    How can I get more tokens?
    There are 3 lieutenants that can give more tokens: Layla has a chance to give a token on a win, Gunslinger gives a chance to start the war with extra, and Frank can give a no cost action. The Assassin skill Cunning can generate a token when attacked and the Reaper skill Ambush can give a chance for free attacks on sleeping players.

    How can I avoid dying while on Killing Spree?
    Use armor packs if possible to continue the spree without dying/healing/interrupting the killing spree.

    Does it matter who starts/loads/fires the nukes?
    The nuke damage is dependent on the upgrades to the nuclear silo and independent of player level/attack/class/etc.

    Should I switch to one of the Tier 2 classes? What's the difference?
    Generally, stronger and more active accounts will do well with a Tier 2 class while weaker and less active accounts do better with Tier 1 classes.

    I heard they are considering a 3x4 or 4x3 grid?
    Not at this point in time. That was from an old Facebook post made by past developers.

    Where can we get "Empire Drops"?
    So these are just placeholders for the future when the actual items are released.

    Why aren't the Shadow Empire upgrades included?
    They aren't available yet to actually build - you can donate however. In the future these will need to be added.

    I can't use my personal Super Powers?
    Find yourself in your building in a war and apply them to yourself.

    How do we recruit new members?
    World Chat is commonly used, EvE chat, in-game chat rooms and Line groups. It's also possible to directly message players individually. All have a varying level of success depending on personal preferences.

    Our leader quit and no one can get a hold of them to promote the Underboss?
    Contact support, help for this problem is situational but it does occasionally work out.

    We saw something weird in the war log?
    Contact support or make a forum post for Duke (with screenshots if possible). It could be a display error or glitch that needs repair.

    What do we do if there is missing, incorrect or misleading information?
    Please, please, please comment in the Comment thread indicated at the top of this thread. It's a community thread so it belongs to all of us.
