EDIT Day 2,369 6:00 eRepublik time: The times on the banner were fixed.

 

EDIT Day 2,369 5:30 eRepublik time: We postponed the first Citizenship Race / Raffle with 30 minutes to avoid lag issues at day change on Tuesday. The banner is now also live.

 

 

As you probably know, 4 new countries will soon be added to eRepublik: Armenia, Cuba, Georgia and Nigeria! We’ve already gathered a bunch of real life residents based on the tickets you’ve sent us. The next step is to award Citizenships for other players who want to join the communities of these new countries.

Apart from sending us a ticket and proving your real life connection to the country, you can also gain a Citizenship by being fast or lucky!


Citizenship Rush

On Friday Day 2,369, a sidebar banner will appear on eRepublik. By clicking the banner, a popup will appear. The popup will show information about what’s going to happen next, and who has already applied for a Citizenship (real life residents excluded). Each country will have a set time when the Citizenship Rush / Raffle will start. The Citizenship Rush will work on a “first come first served” policy, meaning that the first ones to apply will receive a Citizenship. Only a certain amount of Citizenships will be available!

If you were fast enough, you will receive an alert telling that you will be granted a Citizenship in that specific country. Later on, you will also receive a Founding Father Decoration (read more about this at the end). Please note that your Citizenship won’t change until the country is actually implemented in the game.

Please note that pressing the “Apply” button is binding! Once you apply for a new Citizenship, you can’t cancel your application.


Citizenship Raffle

If you weren’t fast enough on the Citizenship Rush, you will receive an alert telling that you were registered for the Citizenship Raffle. This phase means that at the end of the Raffle, X number of Citizenships are given. The Raffle awards the Citizenships randomly, so the system is based on luck, not on any attributes of your account.


The amount of Citizenships given

The amount of Citizenships given in the Raffle is based on the amount of congressmen the new country will have, assuming they possess all their original regions.

“Country: The amount given on the Citizenship Rush + the amount given on the Citizenship Raffle”
- Armenia: 20 + 100
- Cuba: 20 + 70
- Georgia: 20 + 100
- Nigeria: 20 + 100


Schedule

A new Citizenship Rush / Raffle will start every 6 hours, and each lasts for 24 hours.

- Tuesday Day 2,373 0:30 eRepublik time: Armenia’s Citizenship Rush and Raffle start
- Tuesday Day 2,373 6:00 eRepublik time: Georgia’s Citizenship Rush and Raffle start
- Tuesday Day 2,373 12:00 eRepublik time: Cuba’s Citizenship Rush and Raffle start
- Tuesday Day 2,373 18:00 eRepublik time: Nigeria’s Citizenship Rush and Raffle start
- Wednesday Day 2,374 0:30 eRepublik time: Armenia’s Citizenship Raffle ends
- Wednesday Day 2,374 6:00 eRepublik time: Georgia’s Citizenship Raffle ends
- Wednesday Day 2,374 12:00 eRepublik time: Cuba’s Citizenship Raffle ends
- Wednesday Day 2,374 18:00 eRepublik time: Nigeria’s Citizenship Raffle ends

- Thursday Day 2,375: The new countries will be added and Citizenships are given (this is the goal, stay tuned for updates!)

After the countries are added, citizens will have a day or two to form a party/parties and candidate for the Congress Elections.


Ineligibility for the Citizenship Rush and Citizenship Raffle

There are certain factors which prevent you from taking part in the Citizenship Rush / Raffle, hence not being able to gain a Citizenship in these 4 new countries at the time being:

- Player is below level 25
- Player is currently a Country President
- Player is currently a Congressman
- Player is currently a Party President
- Player is currently a Party member and running for Congress
- Player has already been granted a Citizenship in another new country (from the Rush or Raffle)

However, if a citizen chooses to resign from the position or level up by the time of the Raffle, the citizen will be eligible. Also, if you’re a member of a Party, you may take part and you will automatically be removed once the Citizenship is granted.

Please notice that if you have contacted us with a ticket about gaining a Citizenship, and your ticket status is “Citizenship approved”, you won’t be able to participate. You’ll receive the Citizenship along with others.

Note also that players are able to participate in many Raffles at the same time. If a player gets a Citizenship from one through a Race or Raffle, all the other participations automatically get cancelled.


Founding Father status

If you’re among the first citizens of a new country (you either proved to be a real life resident, or won a Citizenship Rush or a Citizenship Raffle), you will earn a Founding Father status. Along with the duty of representing a new nation, you will receive the following prizes when the countries are added:

A unique Founding Father Decoration:

&
50% minimum productivity for 4 months, no matter how many regions and what bonuses the country has.

Example 1: Country has 20% food + 40% weapon bonuses
--> The citizen will have 50% food and 50% weapon bonuses

Example 2: Country has 60% food + 20% weapon bonuses
--> The citizen will have 60% food + 50% weapon bonuses



More information, such as war related gameplay changes, will follow soon! B)

Everyone will see the banner but if you're not eligible, it'll give you an error message when pressing the "Apply" button.

 

There's no deadline for quitting your status as a congressman, you can do so 5 minutes before applying (the check is done live).

Well, I dont rlly like this idea. The rush could be fine except for the fact that there are lots of accounts shared and bot users. And the raffle is just to open the doors  to multiaccounts and big countries/organizations. If it completely random then the amount of people matters and those who get the more applying will get a bigger chance of getting cs. And its also pretty unfair not to give cs to all those who worked for this countries to be added and are not rl residents.

 

Anyway, I didnt expect anything better from you, so here you are a couple of questions:

 

Are you going to say how many people from each country got cs by proving rl residence? Im interested in knowing how many Cubans there are.

 

When are you going to give more details about new countries (like bonus)?

I hope that you will monitor close these countries and won't let the PTOers ruin them.

A small update: We postponed the first Citizenship Race / Raffle (of Armenia) with 30 minutes to avoid lag issues at day change on Tuesday. The Weekly Leaderboards, Weekly Challenge etc. all update on that moment, so better safe than sorry.

 

The banner is now also live. We'll have more updates next week!

 

 


Are you going to say how many people from each country got cs by proving rl residence? Im interested in knowing how many Cubans there are.

 

When are you going to give more details about new countries (like bonus)?

These real life citizens won't appear on the banner, but I believe in the end we will somehow announce a full list of citizens. But for now, I'm not sure about it.

 

Full information about resources, borders etc. will be given next week. Most likely we'll post "country profiles" after each Raffle has closed.

 

I hope that you will monitor close these countries and won't let the PTOers ruin them.

Yeah, we'll keep an eye on any illegal activity. However, PTO itself is not illegal. Using multi accounts obviously is.

The sidebar is already live. The countries are added after all the Raffles are closed (the goal is Thursday Day 2,375, but it's not 100% set in stone at the moment).

We don't have plans for discounts like this right now.

kszonek

Thanks for pointing out about the banner, it's fixed now.

 

As for the 2nd question, you won't actually get the citizenship the moment the raffle ends. You need to wait a day or two until the country is implemented and at that moment you'll receive the citizenship.

 

But there's no minimum time of keeping the Citizenship, so technically once you get it, you can also get rid of it. I just personally hope that people wouldn't do this..

Hey, if you enter the party page, you should be able to withdraw from your candidacy.

 

In this Race / Raffle, you don't need to be a real life citizen.

 

As for taking part in the politics, it's totally up to you what you want to aim for once you receive the citizenship.

Yes you can. If you're not fast enough in either, you will be registered to both Raffles. If you get lucky with the Armenian one, you'll be automatically removed from the Georgian Raffle.

 

Will there be some protection time for the new countries from invaders ? Some initial influence bonus for them ? 

Yes, there will be things making life easier for the new countries. We'll announce more details next week!
