A new feature of Evony Age II is that you can colonize the city of another player. When you colonize someone you don’t completely own this city, you just have some control over it. To colonize a city you first have to declare war against it, click on the city you wish to colonize and click on the “Declare War” button. Then you have to wait 30 minutes for the war declaring period to end before you can launch your colonization attack.
Click on the city and click “Colonize” launch the colonization attack. You need to attack the city successfully to start the colonization, so make sure you send enough troops to win the battle. There is a certain colonization time before the city becomes your colony, this is called the suppression time and is 8 hours.
You should make sure you keep sending more troops to the city during the suppression period. The person you are trying to colonize can also send reinforcements to the city during this period to a possible massive battle at the end of the colonizing period. If you win the battle at the end of the 8 hour suppression time the city becomes your colony.
You will get gold and resources paid in tribute from the colonized city, the city become a vassal of yours. I’m not sure how much gold and resources you get from the colonized city, or if you can choose the tribute from your colony yourself. The options you can use on a colonized city is Tax Imposition, Disarmament, Food Levy, Draft (you can draft the colonized city troops), ,Population Redeployment (you can get some of the population of the colonized city - 10%) and Sow Discord (this is to actually persuade the local Hero in joining you).
At some point your vassal, or colonized city, can rise up against you.
There is a quest in Evony Age II that is called uprising and says you can do this if your city is colonized. You can also issue your own anti-colonization commission quest to help you rise up against your Suzerain.
14. April there was an update to how many colonies each of your cities can have. Evony increased the number of colonies that players can own. Every city can now have a maximum number of colonies equal to the number which is the lord’s title level multiplied by 10. I assume this means that civilian can have 10 colonies for his 1 city, knights 20 for each of his 2 cities, so 40 total, baronet 30 for each of his 3 cities, so 90 total etc. Prinzessin would then following this rule able to have 100 colonies for each of his 10 cities, which is a total of 1,000 colonies. This does seem like a lot of colonies, but it is how I understand the post. The title number for Prinzessin is 10, 10 times 10 is 100, and this is for each of the players 10 cities.
After the 48h war declaration ends, you still own the city, but can Abandon it. It is called Handover and it lasts 24h.
Uprising against your Suzerain.
Uprising is the defense you have in Evony Age II against being colonized. The player who has colonized you is called the Suzerain. Suzerain has many meanings, but one is being a nation that controls another nation in international affairs but allows it domestic sovereignty. This description fits well to the suzerains role in Evony.
This is how you start uprising in your city: The uprising button is NOT located in your town hall, you need to go to the world map and locate the city of the player who is colonizing you. You click on this city to select it and there you should find the uprise button. You click this button to initiate uprising in your city. You need to have gates open to successfully uprise and gain back your city, and you also need to have enough troops to defeat the colonizer.
If you need help in defeating the player that has colonized you, the Suzerain as he is also called, you should consider starting a commission quest. This will cost you some Evony cents, and these cents will go in reward to the player helping you in the uprising battle.
Anti-colonization comission quest.
Commission quests is a new feature of Evony Age 2. Commission quests are quests that you can offer to other players in reward for Evony game cents. At the moment there are only one type of commission quest you can offer other players, but I expect there to be more types of commission quests available in the future.
The quest type available now is the anti-colonization commission quest. What this does is that it lets another player help you in the uprising battle against your Suzerain and take your colonized city back. When you issue the quest you can choose how much the reward is, the better the reward is the more player you will probably get wanting to do your quest. The players interested will bid for the quest, and the winner will be the player with most experience worth of troops.
When you issue the anti-colonization commission quest the designated city will issue and uprising order automatically, and the quest will be available for 24 hours as a default. However, if you have manually executed the uprising order before starting the quest, the quest will only be available the remaining time of the uprising war. You can not issue a anti-colonization quest when there is less than 1 hour less of the uprising war. Once the quest is issued you can not manually resist your Suzerain, you have to wait for the troops of the player taking on your quest.
