The eRepublik mad scientists are working on a new industry that will reshape the future of the eRepublik Universe. The new industry is based on 5 new resources that will boost its productivity. The resources are up for grabs in the following month during a Country versus Country competition.


Dates

 

The Resource Wars will start on the 6th of May and will run for the entire presidential term.


New Resources and Changes in Productivity

 

The 5 new resources are: Wolfram, Titanium, Cobalt, Magnesium, Neodymium.

The addition of the new resources will impact the distribution of current resources as in the following table:

Each type of resource will have a different impact on the productivity bonuses based on their scarcity:

After the event ends, the Company owners will have to establish their Companies in the Regions of their choice in order to benefit from the new bonuses.



Claiming Resources

 

The President or Dictator in charge can claim a resource for one of his Country’s original Regions using Resource Tokens. Once a Country wins a Resource Token, a resource from the resource pool will be assigned to the eligible Region of the Country.

 

Using the resource assignation screen, the President/Dictator can pick one or more resources for each of the Country’s original Regions. Once a Country wins a Resource Token, the allocation process gets triggered. At that moment the Regions will be processed from top to bottom and the wanted resources from left to right until an eligible resource is found for that Region. If no resource is found for the Region, the next Region will be considered. If no Region can receive a resource, the Token is lost.

 

Once a resource is claimed, it will be displayed on the list, in the "Allocated" tab.



Resource Placement Rules

 

Rare and very rare resources of the same industry cannot be placed within a specific radius from each other. A Resource War map is available in order to plan the strategy and see how others’ decisions may impact it.

Up to 4 DIFFERENT resources can be placed in the same Region.

A Country can not assign more resources than the number of its historical (original) regions (unless it has less than 4 regions, in which case it can assign 4 resources).


Example:

Singapore can get  Fish, Fruits, Cattle and Grain in its only Region.

Romania has 9 historic Regions and can place 4 resources in Muntenia, 4 in Oltenia and another 1  in Moldova.



You can use the map tool in the popup to see how the placement of a specific resource in a Region will affect the neighboring regions by selecting a resource, the scarcity level and click on a region of your choice. Newly allocated resources will be displayed on the map once claimed.

The Resource Pool

 

The resources currently available and the ones that will be made available in the next 12 hours are shown in the “Resource Pool” tab


Resource Tokens

 

A token is awarded to a Country for each 30 000 Domination Points (the sum of the Domination Points over all the Divisions https://wiki.erepubl...ivision_battles )  that the Country gathers in direct Battles, Resistance Wars and Airstrikes (Civil Wars are not counted). A weekly Country Domination Points leaderboard is now online and a special “Domination Points till next token” leaderboard will be available throughout the event.


Resources from the pool unclaimed by the end of the event will not be placed.


As the current state of the leaderboard shows, small countries  with training wars and good diplomats can get their share of the pie.

Division Swapping

 

For those of you who want to go the extra mile to help out their Country, during the event individual objectives will be available on the Battlefield, that once completed will allow the player to switch Divisions for the remaining of the round.


When fighting in a “foreign” Division, the player will have his hit capped by the current max hit(used by the ghost booster multiplier) in the Division. If the player;s hit is lower than the division max hit, the player’s damage will be used in combat.


This will allow players to get domination points in other divisions too.


Three levels of objectives, each with different requirements will be available, and completing one will allow the player to unlock a division of his choice for the rest of the round. The objectives are only available on his native division.


If a swapping player has the top damage in a foreigner division he will get the Battle Hero medal.


Extended Taxation


As announced in the latest updates taxes are now levied on combat orders and medals rewarding currency.




Dictators & Civil Wars

 

We are nerfing the civil wars, as we agree with the community voices that  believe they are detrimental to the current gameplay. Costs to open and close a civil war are now 1000000 currency units.


Next step is to introduce a Dictatorship Upkeep Fee that will be payed by the Dictator.

 

 

Feel free to leave us your feedback on this and Happy Easter to those who celebrate it over the weekend.

When you say foreign, do you mean foreign as in the literal use of the word (from another country) or do you mean as in not in your natural division?

I think they are referring to a division that you are not in, what you've called "natural division". For example, I'm in D4 and I will be able to fight in, for example, D1 according to this. At least, that's how I understood that.

Does this:" After the event ends, the Company owners will have to establish their Companies in the Regions of their choice in order to benefit from the new bonuses." mean that resources are allocated and the companies are allocated and this is permanent- if region is occupied than also the companies are occupied "bound to the region"?

Can a player place multiple companies in different regions?

And one irrelevant question- will there be buy back period for the current companies in case we want to switch the production line?

Damn.

 

Honestly, I still have the feeling of USA being somewhat overpowered right in the start, but that's just me.

It was meant to be as you said "not in your natural Division".

When you say minimum distance between resources is that regions for resources?
More exactly...can you have a very rare and rare resource for the same industry in the same region?

You are not fixing anything just making everything more twisted and complicated . Very few will care to remember what the hell is going on. Everything used to be simple and clear , now it's a chaotic mess and you keep making it worse.You just add random things that make no sense and nobody cares about.

 

The economy can't function as long as we can work in our own farms. If the economy doesn't matter, wars have no relevance. Adding the ability to tax even more only increases the ability for abuse.A handful of people in each country  is just able to take from everybody and misuse 99% of that- that has always been the case everywhere, at any time.You should get rid of any and all taxes as there is absolutely no need for taxes. The gov should just ask for donations instead and that would actually increase the gold purchases.

 

Packs are another supreme idiocy that only Plato could imagine.Packs for real $ are much much worse.

Looks interesting. Just make it very clear (and LOUD) about companies being bound to regions. Don't let anybody (especially freedom fighters) to get stuck in random regions with their companies.

Yes, the single good change.

 

And, yes, making countries not having equal number of core regions is a very stupid decision. Adding the "core the region" war/something, like in Europa Universalis, would fix that.

Liberation from coup is also 1m? You crazy, it's the end of small countries, you didn't care anything we told you.
