Non-Player Dominions or bots are randomly generated dominions that are spawned prior to OOP to facilitate attacking since inactive dominions are virtually non-existent after adding Click-Through Protection (CTP). Since Round 23, about half of them will automatically train and land.
NPDs are located in Realm 0 'The Graveyard' along with inactive dominions that have not left protection. NPDs spawn at a human to bot ratio of ~1.74:1.
|Land Size||Percentage of NPDs|
NPDs spawn with defense based on this formula
120 * exp(0.0058 * [Total Land]) multiplied by a random factor.
The random factor for ~85% of NPDs is +/- 10%, but for the remaining ~15% it is +15-20%. Dominions on the lower end of the spectrum will spawn with a random amount of offensive specialists to mask the increased networth of those on the higher end.
Every NPD will have an additional 20-35% defense incoming during the first 12 hours.
|Land Size||Base Defense||Low Range (85%)||High Range (15%)|
On average, 50% of NPDs will begin to perform actions starting a few hours after OOP. Those that are inactive will remain inactive for the duration of the round. Each has a 1/3 chance of 'logging in' each hour. They will build barren acres, cast spells, train defense, train spies/wizards to a 0.05 ratio, and explore. They will cast their spells any time they drop below 4 hours remaining, therefore it is rare that they drop off, but not impossible. If they recast, it is within the first minute or so of the hour. Each NPD is limited to exploring 18 acres in a single hour and between 72-89 in a single hour. NPDs will train defense up to the following formula, which is then increased by 2% each time they are successfully invaded.
