New Actions: Espionage & Sabotage

Espionage & Sabotage

Espionage & Sabotage

The latest update for Age of Conquest ONLINE v3 includes five additional actions. The actions are available on both Android and desktop (PC, Mac, Linux), except the call to arms function is only available on desktop at the moment. The five actions include:

  • Support – can be used to send gold to other empires. The functionality is limited to 40’000 gold per transaction.
  • Purchase – can be used to purchase neutral provinces. The provinces are rather expensive and can be acquired for 100’000 gold or more depending on the province’s value (production, population).
  • Call to Arms – can be used to rally troops from multiple provinces that are in range (radius 3). The troops become available the next turn. It helps prevent depletion of population on a province.
  • Espionage – can be utilized to spy on other empires. Functions include locating an enemy ruler, their treasury, economy or reading their messages.
  • Sabotage – can be utilized to steal gold from foreign rulers or reduce their morale.

[Call to Arms], [Espionage] and [Sabotage] are disabled by default and have to be set if a new game is created. [Support] and [Purchase] are new and become available also in games already in progress. [Support] and [Purchase] can be disabled as needed.

  1. Holy ****, you can steal gold and read their private messages. Exactly how does that work?

    Has any consideration been given to “security”? A feature that will counter any attempt to have gold stolen or messages read, etc.?

  2. In regards to reading in-game messages, you simply get a message about the other empire sent/received during that same turn.

    No plans for a security feature yet.

  3. I’ve played several games with the ability to purchase a neutral province, and considering the outrageous 100,000+ cost, I have yet to purchase one yet as I cannot make that much gold before every province (world map) is occupied. How is this even possible to do? The price should be cut down to ~20,000, with a potential cap on how many overseas territories one can purchase or a cap for a certain period of turns.

  4. The cost of 100’000 might be little high. Please post your proposal on the forums for discussion!
