Recently it was suggested to have a world geared towards starting strategy and gameplay. As this idea received some strong support, we have decided that the next High Performance round will be tailored towards players who enjoy the thrill of the early game (the startup phase).
The tribes will be small, the competition will be fierce, and the winner will be the first player to take – and hold – 10 villages and 40k points for one day.
Start date: Saturday 15th January, 20:00.
End date *: Saturday 19th March * The end date will only be used if no player manages to meet the above winning criteria
To join the world on Saturday, simply login as usual and select 'Startup' from the world list. There are 5000 free player slots.
The winning player will receive 1,000 premium points.
The runner up will receive 600 premium points.
The player in 3rd place will receive 400 premium points.
Additionally, every player in the top-ranked tribe will receive 200 premium points.
