What is the World Domination event?
The World Domination event is faction-oriented event where you compete to earn World Domination (WD) points. The members of factions with the most points will receive great rewards. The faction with the most WD points will permanently control the area of the map where the event is taking place and receive a special faction bonus.
Who can declare war during World Domination?
Only the faction leader and officers can declare war during the event.
How do I earn WD points?
WD points can be earned only by having your faction engage in a war with another faction. Once a faction has declared war, it will get matched up with another faction and the war will begin. At the end of each war, the side that has the most points wins. During a war, there are two ways to get points: attacking members of the opposing faction and attacking their Fortifications or Command Center. Players get more points by attacking other faction members than by attacking the structures, but they only get points if they win. Players will get fewer WD points if they attack the structures, but they are guaranteed points just by attacking. The points players get by attacking a structure are based on the damage they do, which in turn is based on their attack stats. Please note that all WD points you earn will be halved as long as the rival faction's Fortification is still standing.
What are Fortifications used for?
Factions will use one Fortification per war. While that faction's Fortification is standing, the opposing faction will earn half as many points. Factions can spend money and concrete to upgrade the Fortification up to level 15. A Fortification will be consumed at the end of the war regardless of whether the opposing faction completely destroyed it or not.
What is the Command Center used for?
The Command Center remains for players from the opposing faction to attack after the Fortification is destroyed. It serves no other purpose.
What is the Defense Leader and how can I defeat them?
Each faction can set one member as the faction's Defense Leader. As long as the Defense Leader remains undefeated and has at least part of the shield up, no other faction members can be attacked during a war. Once the Defense Leader has been successfully beaten by an attack, the rest of the faction members can be attacked. Defense Leaders have a new resource called "Shield Points." Defense Leaders start out with 100 Shield Points. Each unsuccessful attack against a Defense Leader drains 10 Shield Points from that Leader. Once the Shield Points reach 0, the Defense Leader is considered beaten and the remaining faction members can be attacked. The Defense Leader is chosen by the faction leader.
While the Defense Leader plays a specific role during World Domination, it is not a separate rank in the faction. The player appointed by the Leader to the role will continue to have the same rank in the faction along with those abilities.
Are factions locked during World Domination?
If you are in a faction at the start of the event, you may leave a faction but you cannot join a different faction or rejoin the same faction. If you are not in a faction at the start of the event, you may join a faction. You can leave a faction, but you cannot be removed by faction leadership.
What is the difference between a 72 hour WD event and a 24 hour WD event?

What is the prize structure for the individual leaderboard in World Domination?
The individual leaderboard rewards for World Domination are one prize per player in the leaderboard tier in which the player completed the event and does not include lower tier prizes.
How does match-making work between factions in World Domination?
The system looks at the overall strength of your faction; The sum of your faction's power will be compared to the sum of the other faction's power when looking for potential match-ups. Additionally, the system looks at how many match-ups you have had with the faction during the event, and the faction's WD rank based on how well you are doing in the event. As time goes on without a match, the parameters will relax slightly. It can take up to an hour to receive a match after declaring war.
