Get a Better Understanding of War and Order Burn Times
Whenever your castle gets attacked in War and Order, you will either win or lose the battle. If you lose the battle then your castle will burn. The same is true for alliance buildings and flags. If you want to want to destroy enemy flags, then it will help to understand the way War and Order burn times work.
What determines the burn time of a castle, building, or flag?
If your goal is to destroy an alliance flag or building, you will want to send larger marches. The same can be said if you are trying to “zero” out a castles defenses.
A full march of troops will set a burn time of 1 hour. If you attack again with another full march then another hour will be added to the timer. You can keep attacking as much as you like to create a burn time of over 24 hours. Something to keep in mind is the targets defense amount. The more defense a target has the longer burn time you will need.
Direct attacks do little to no good when trying to destroy a building. The important thing is to keep the fires burning.
How Defense and Burn Times Work Together
First off, when a structure is burning it is periodically losing defense. Direct attacks do little to no good when trying to destroy a building or flag. The important thing is to keep the fires burning.
War and Order burn times work as a sort of continuous attack, even after you have attacked. You can extinguish fires at the cost of gems, special items. You can use alliance points for alliance buildings and flags. But if you can keep up on attacks, you can successfully destroy flags and buildings. You can even cause someones castle to randomly teleport.
War and Order Burn Times – Extra Info
If a structure has 2000 defense and it has a burn time of 1 hour the damage will be minimal. It will also require more than the max burn time to zero out the defense. If you want to be sure you can destroy the building or flag, you need to be sure to keep the fire burning. However, you do not need to repeatedly attack the target.
A good practice is to get an 8 hour burn time going on your target. Periodically attack the target again to keep the burn time going. Remember attacking the target does not reduce the defense itself, it is the burn time that does all of the work.
The basic War and Order burn time formula is this:
- A structure will lose 100 defense per every hour of burn time
- The lower the defense gets, the less the maximum burn time will be
- A larger army will create a longer burn time
Repairing Buildings, Castles, and Flags
There is an option to repair your structures in War and Order. When a structure is burning you can spend gems to extinguish the fire. The cost to put out the fire on a castle is 60 gems. You then have the option to spend gems to replenish your defense.
The cost to repair or extinguish fires from alliance building and flags is 200 gems. You can also use alliance points to repair your alliance structures and flags.
