What is the use of in-game gold coins?: 3/3/2020 22:08:23

You can buid cities, which earn further gold and appaently you can use them to buy armies(1 gp for the first ten,etc). However, in my present game I have incvested in buying about seven plus cities, but when i choose the purchase option in the top left, the only option which appears is the one to build more cities. - What i envisaged being able to do was to spend the accrued gold buying armies, yet can't.

Grr..!

Also, if it's of any help, I cuurrently seem to have 29 gp banked, while my recruitment capability is currently 19 armies.


Which in itself is confusing, as i currently earn 10 armies per turn for territories, plus one gold for another, and the base armies per turn is 3. So where are the extra 6 armies coming from do you think.

Cheers.

Cities provide you with gold; that's where the extra is coming in. At the moment gold is mainly for building cities and spending on armies. You can take a look at https://www.warzone.com/wiki/Commerce for more detail.

You do buy armies. It happens automatically. Note that there is a setting to set the price for additional armies. {Army Multiplier}

Ah.Okay.That might partially explain it. Will just check if the extra 6 armies are an automatic purchase as a result of the number of cities i have. You could have cracked it for me.

Damn. No. I have 13 cities.

Surely if they automatically generated 1 gp each per turn, then i should have an extra ten armies each turn, plus whatever other extra based at the higher purchase rate. This doesn't seem to equatye to me only having seven extra armies each turn.3 of which come from the base number created each turn(in this game, three).

Arrrrghhhh!etc....!

Just rechecked the settings.
Commerce is 'yes, 10 army cost multiplier'.

Which in plain english means ?Dunno. The cost of each army after each multiple of ten has been reached increases? To 2 gpfor each army in the second muliple of ten? Then 3 gp for the third multiple of ten, or does the cost double each time you go to the next multipe of ten?

The Army Multiplier is a setting that game creators can configure. It defaults to 10, which means that the first 10 armies each player purchases each turn cost 1 gold each. The next 10 cost 2 gold each, the next 10 cost 3 gold each, etc.



From the wiki, where 10 is the example.
{I do agree thru, Army Multiplier is not a intuitive name. However, I think almost all commerce games use the standard 10 as the setting}

29 gold, then means.

10 armies -> 10 g
10 +10 armies -> 10 g + 20 g = 30g
Hence with, 29 gold you can deploy 19 armies for 28 g. And you have 1g left

The first 10 cost 1 gold each
The second 10 cost 2 gold each
the third 10 cost 3 gold each
... ...
etc


If you had 29 gold, that is
10 gold giving 10 men at cost 1 each
18 gold giving 9 men at cost 2 each
you would save one gold for the next turn


--
If it is local deploy and you save gold at the end of a turn, you cannot deploy it as troops the next turn

Ahhhh.

makes sense now, thanks to your input. I still think it's unnecessarily confusing(especially the ambiguous, plain old unclear notes in the settings/wiki).

I think what condfused me most was the fact that the gold you spend on troops is for your total spend. - Iwas under the impression that you had the bonus for weach set of territories 'banked', as it werre, or automatic, and then any gold you had wpuld generate the ability to but the NEXT ten armies at 1 gp for each of the first ten, and so on.

Didn't realise it was all one in 'one pot' of gold.

Thanks again for the advice. Appreciated.
