What is the maximum number of allies I can use in PvP? How does fighting other players work?
For every ally you have (up to 500), you can bring 3 army units to battle. Also, each ally will be equipped with one weapon, one armor, one head piece, one foot piece and two artifacts. The total attack and defense of your best units, the attack and defense of all your ally's equipment and your hero equipment determines your stats going into battle. Only the best equipment is chosen. Please also note that every unit (except those bought with gems) has a casualty rate, and can be lost in battle.
Why is this player able to attack me and win?
Skill points invested in attack and defense provide a behind-the-scenes bonus to your combat resolution. These benefits cannot be seen by either attacker or defender in an effort to add a bit of chance and mystery to player versus player (PvP) combat.
How can I lower an enemy's defense?
If you knock out someone's defense buildings or boost buildings, it will lower their stats until they repair them.
Why did I not win any money after attacking a player?
When you look at another player's profile, the money they have is their total amount. This includes money protected by the vault and money that is unprotected by the bank. Only unprotected money can be robbed from another player.
Why can I attack my allies?
In previous versions of the game, players were unable to attack their allies, or see them on the Rivals List. This changed with the addition of guilds to the game. Now allies will show up as rivals and can be attack, but your fellow guild members cannot be. They are safe from attack or robbery.
