7. Description of Map Elements
7.1 Tactical Map—image of the territory with a grid mesh and markings of objects described below.
7.2 Base—object marked on the tactical map:
The square does not bring income and only serves to set the position of moved tokens on the map as a result of the tactical phase.
7.3 Token—element with the clan logo and clan tag of the main clan. Indicates the number of teams in the square.
Token movements are made by clan commander or deputy commander of the clan from their Account Management section. For example, if a Town or Base has three clan teams simultaneously, the token is displayed with the number 3 after the clan tag and is called stacked.
7.4 Entry Point—square marked on the tactical map.
Map squares with this mark are a starting point for token movement on the map. The token cannot move onto this square.
7.5 Town—object marked on the tactical map:
7.6 Anti-Tank Gun (ATG)—object marked on the tactical map:

7.9 Prohibition on entry or movement —
If this mark is on top of an object, it indicates that a token cannot be moved onto this object.
8. Description of the Tactical Phase
8.1 At the start of the game, each clan is granted a single token. Token movement starts from an Entry Point. A token can be moved across map squares only vertically and/or horizontal. Per one turn, a token can be moved up to four squares max (the starting object does not count towards this number) and must end the turn only on Base or Town type squares. Diagonal movement is not allowed.
Example: From Entry Point "J' you can move token to the Chost Town or Prohorovka (4 cell to the goal), but you can't move it to the Paris (6 cells)
8.2 To determine the objects, onto which tokens can be placed on the map, Entry Point squares are used. Token movement from Entry Points follows the general rules, i.e. target objects cannot be further than four squares from an Entry Point.
8.3 Commander can move tokens available to them across the map either separately or by combining several tokens into one, defining its par value. Tokens are stacked when moved to the same object on the map.
For example, 1 token is displayed like this: and 2 tokens is displayed like this:
8.4 If a team loses a battle during the combat phase, the token is removed from the map or its par value is decreased by the number of lost battles.
8.5 Tokens of clans who attack an object on the map are placed near that object. As the battles progress, tokens of the clans that lost are removed from the map. The token of the clan who emerged victorious out of the battles is moved onto the target object.
8.6 If a clan lost all of its tokens on the map, it is granted one free token again. Subsequent actions are repeated according to item 8.1.
8.7 Coordinates of token movements are accepted during the tactical phase.
8.8 Movements are accepted from 0:01 till 19:00 (MSK) on tactical days.
8.9 To add an additional token onto the map, a clan should have enough Gallons. A single new token costs 500 Gallons.
8.10 The maximum number of chips from 1 clan is not more than 10.
9. Description of the Combat Phase
9.1 The combat phases take place following the tactical phases. The battle start time is indicated in the object parameters.
For example the start time of the battle for the city is 21:00 (local time, which is formed for the user according to his time zone)
Battle brackets are formed based on moves made by clan commanders and token placements on the map. The time between battles is 30 minutes. For example, if the battle start time is 21:30, then the second battle (if needed) should begin at 22:00, the third battle at 22:30, etc. If the battle is not started within 5 minutes of the battle start time the team assigned to create the room receives a technical defeat.
Important! If a team receives a technical defeat (or does not have time to press the Victory button), then the team loses ALL the chips on this object!
Important! This example is relevant for a situation where all clans have 1 chip. If one of the clans has more than 1 chip, then the actual time before the start of the battle should be viewed in the Daily report window
On the objects that are in the time zone EU and CIS - Europe, on the other objects in time zone ASIA, USA West and USA East is North America. All objects display the user's local time!
9.2 Team Destruction (TD):
9.2.1 A Team Destruction takes place when several clans planned to move their tokens onto the same Base or Town. The attacking clans fight each other in the Team Destruction mode. The owner of the object does not take part in the clash.
9.2.2 If an object is simultaneously contested by several different clans, a tournament bracket is formed, the order of battles within which is determined based on the time when the contesting clans submitted their turns.
9.2.3 If an object is attacked by stacked tokens of several clans, the bracket is created according to the following rules:
- Teams from the same clan do not fight each other.
- In the first round, all clans that attack the object fight their battles at the same time. Pairs in the bracket are formed to engage maximum number of attacking tokens of different clans.
- If a clan attacking the object has the highest number of tokens, battles for the objects are conducted in two rounds. Once the pairs for the first round have been formed, the remaining tokens that could not be distributed are transitioned to the second round. The bracket of the second round is formed from tokens of the winning teams and the tokens that remained undistributed during the first round.
9.2.4 The winning team (or winning teams from the same clan) automatically becomes the owner of the Town or Base or fights a battle against the clan that owns the object.
9.2.5 The team that completely eliminates the opposing team wins the Team Destruction; the victory can also be granted by the automatic system.
9.3 Attack-Defense Battle (ADB)
9.3.1 An Attack-Defense Battle is fought between a clan that attacks an object and the clan that owns the Town or Base. Such battles are conducted in the Assault game mode. In this casw, the clan that owns the city when creating a room must choose the side of Base Defense
9.3.2 If a single clan attacks an already owned Town or Base, only an ADB is fought for the object.
9.3.3 If a stacked token of the clan owning the Town is placed on the Town, the attacking clan must defeat all teams of that clan deployed in the contested Town. In this case, separate battles between each team of the attacking clan against each team of the defending clan are arranged.
For example, if clan A with its three teams emerges victorious from all the Team Destructiones for a Town, and three teams of clan B are deployed in the Town, the first round comprises battles between the three teams from each side. If the number of teams is not even, the battles are divided into two rounds. Teams that had no pair in the first round and the winners of the first round get into round two.
9.3.4 The attacking team will be deemed victorious if they destroy all vehicles of the opposing team or capture the base. The defending team will be deemed victorious if they destroy all vehicles of the opposing team or prevent the opponents from capturing the base until the battle time runs out.
9.4 The results of battles are recorded by clans in the admin panel. The winning clan must enter the battle result in the admin panel - button Victory . If one of the clans does not agree with the result of the battle, then he can stop the clock - button Protest (20 minutes are allowed for each battle, the clan can stop the clock only during this period of time!) And contact the coordinators in the discord channel. When contacting, you must specify the coordinates of the object (for example, Q6), the name of the clan, and clearly explain the essence of the claim
Important! Before clicking the Victory button, you need to refresh the Global Map page (F5). If you do not, the result will not be counted!
Important! The Victory button should only be pressed in the event of a completed match (as a result of which the battle took place and the website is used to award the victory). In all other cases, the Protest button should be pressed. If this clause is violated, the clan that pressed the Victory button instead of the Protest button loses all their chips on the map!
9.5 If for any reason a clan team cannot attend a battle in time, it suffers a technical defeat. The winning clan makes a screenshot proving that the opponent was not present in the training room. The winning clan also calls for a judge via Discord so that the latter could ascertain that the opposing team is not present in the training room or that no training room was created by the opponents to conduct the battle. The token of the defeated clan is removed from the tactical map.
