Division  

A Division is an autonomous body of troops during a battle, part of a Battle Line. Regardless of their Type, all Combat Units in a Division fight together and are considered a single target for purposes of enemy Attacks.

Divisions are used only in Field Battle, and only for the Archery or Frontline Battle Lines. A Battle Line's Divisions are always one Center and two Flanks.

In the Archery Line the different types of Archers are proportionally deployed across the three Divisions. Destroying a player's Archery Line Division with your Melee troops grants the opportunity for a Flanking Attack against his remaining Frontline Divisions.

In the Frontline, all Melee units are assigned to a Division according their Priority Deployment. After any preliminary attacks by Ranged units, Frontline Division enter Melee combat with the corresponding enemy Frontline Division: Flank against Flank, Center against Center. Destroying a player's Frontline Division grants your Melee troops the opportunity to advance and attack his Archery Division behind.

If all troops in a Frontline Division are killed, they're immediately replaced by the Reserve. For all intents and purposes the Reserve becomes that Frontline Division until the end of the Field Battle, or until destroyed.

Dominion Rush  

This is an alliance-oriented tournament in which the main goal is conquering castles that should be controlled as long as possible by the same alliance. There are 36 castles on the map that can be conquered trough the module Allegiance. Successful fortress sieges against an alliance castle do not drop levels from its fortress, but take away points from the indicator "allegiance". Each castle has a maximum allowed allegiance according to the level of its fortress. The only way to increase allegiance is through time. When an alliance conducts a successful fortress siege against a castle a certain amount of allegiance will be taken from the castle. The exact amount of allegiance taken depends on the alliance technology "Conqueror". The higher its level the more allegiance points can be taken in a single hit. A castle is considered taken when an alliance manages to reduce its allegiance to 0. The independent castles don't have allegiance, an independent castle is conquered when less than 1000 military units are left in it. Castles controlled by alliances are subjected to ascending by level nomad attacks that are sent out over time. Each defended attack grants Defensive points. The castles can be simultaneously attacked by other alliances as well. Ranking is based on the total score of Defensive points. Winners in the tournament will get diamonds and special medals as a reward.

Dungeon  

Every field battle, fortress siege and pillage includes a chance for the general of the losing side to be captured by their opponent. The exact chance depends on multiple factors, including the scale of the encounter, both generals' experience and the closeness of the losses. The higher the experience, the bigger the chance for a general to be captured.

Once a general is captured, they are held captive for a set amount of time depending on their rarity. A captured general becomes inactive and cannot be used by the player - their slot in the family tree is locked and they are released from any occupied governor/general slots. If an emperor is captured, their governor bonuses are nullified but their slot remains filled. Captured enemy generals can be seen in a new "Dungeon" tab, inside the Palace.

Freeing your captured general can be done by paying a bounty in diamonds - this amount also depends on the person's rarity. 30% of the paid sum is transferred to the capturer, and the general is immediately returned to their original ruler. A general who hasn't been redeemed before the time limit dies automatically. Aging rate is not affected during captivity.

Daily happiness modifiers are also applied, depending on the outcome of a battle: -5 happiness for each lost general, and +5 happiness for each captured enemy general. This modifier is applied to all holdings.
