“Generals have a commanding presence on the battlefield, able to both deal and take a lot of damage. They are particularly powerful when fighting other generals.”

General Information Edit

Generals have higher hit points than other units in the game and move quicker, but have lower damage output. Generals target the nearest enemy and do 6x damage when fighting other Generals.

Using Generals Edit

Generals are used differently compared to other units.

  • To use a General, you activate them by choosing the General you want to use at the Castle
  • Only a certain amount of Generals can be active at a time.
    • 1 General capacity once you constructed Castle / Fort
    • + 1 General capacity once your researched Leadership Chapter 3
    • + 1 General capacity once your researched Command Chapter 4
  • An additional General can help with defense at the Pentagon on Atomic Age
  • The first General can be activated instantaneous and free, while the second and third generals can be activated with a cost of Oil. The Oil cost differ with General level
  • The third General to be activated cost more than the second General.
  • Active Generals are shown on top of the Castle and will defend against attacking armies.
  • Active Generals can be used in battles. If they are deployed and they are hurt, then they will become inactive after the battle. If not, they will still be active.
  • Active Generals can be deactivated. This prevents them from being injured defending your base and allows you to activate a different General.
  • If a General loses health when they are attacking or defending, then they need to heal before they can be activated again. The amount of time depends on the proportion of health lost, up to a maximum of 24 hours. For example, a General losing half their health will need to heal for 12 hours before becoming available again.
  • If General is used in battle and you do not destroy all the defensive buildings it will heal for 24 hours.
  • Generals can be healed instantly using Crowns.
  • With the current AI, Generals seek and attack the closest building in battles, and are best used as cleaning crews.
  • After level 10, Oil is required to upgrade Generals instead of Food. 41,000 Oil is required to go from a level 10 General to level 11.
  • From Level 21, Generals move in tanks (with the exception of MacArthur and Churchill. They are always in tanks and also Hannibal who rides elephant).
  • Oil is required to upgrade Napoleon, MacArthur, and Churchill for all levels.

Strategy Edit

Generals are very powerful troops that can be very effective in battle. However, they take a long time to heal if heavily damaged, so they should be saved for important battles or only used when they will take light damage.

Ballista Towers do very high damage and you should avoid them with Generals.
