# Prestige

**Prestige** is an incentive for attackers.

All dominions start with 250 prestige.

## Prestige Bonus[edit]

Type | Multiplicative | Additive |
---|---|---|

Offensive power | No | Yes |

Food production | No | Yes |

Population | Yes | No |

### Formula[edit]

`Prestige/100=x% bonus`

#### Multiplicative[edit]

If you have 0% population modifiers you will still get the prestige bonus.

For example, if you have 250 prestige and no other population bonuses you would get +2.5% max population:

`1.00x(1+250/10000)=1.025`

## Gaining Prestige[edit]

Prestige is most commonly gained by invading other dominions which are at least 75% your land size. Alternately, a mutual War can give you some prestige from black ops.

### Formula[edit]

The standard formula for prestige gain is:

`115*min(1,LandRatio)-50+TargetLand/200`

- You can hit 4 bots without any sort of penalty, starting with the 5th your prestige gain will dip by 10% each successive hit (always gaining at least 50% of normal prestige)
- For human players- you can hit the same exact guy twice without penalty, starting with the 3rd your prestige gain will dip by 10% each successive hit (always gaining at least 50% of normal prestige)
- The excessive hitting penalty is multiplicative with prestige bonuses (e.g. Techs or the Golden Throne Wonder).

Examples:

- Hitting a 1500 acre target 75% of your size yields
`115 * 75% - 50 + 1500/200 = 44 prestige`

- Hitting a 5000 acre target 110% of your size yields
`115 * 100% - 50 + 5000/200 = 90 prestige`

- Your sixth time hitting a bot at 2550 acres from 3000 acres (85%) yields
`(115 * 85% - 50 + 2550/200) * (1 - 2 * 0.1) = 48 prestige`

- Your fourth time hitting a human player at 80% of your size (5000 hitting 4000 acres), while your realm has the Golden Throne (+15 % attacking prestige), yields
`(80% * 115 - 50 + 4000/200) * 1.15 * (1 - 2 * 0.1) = 57 prestige`

- Hitting a target 60%-75% yields no prestige change
- Hitting a target below 60% of your size yields a 5% prestige loss for the attacker.

Prestige gains are added to your prestige when the last units return. If you only send units which return in 9 hours, your prestige will be added after 9 hours. But if you also send units with a longer return time, prestige will be added when those units return.

## Losing Prestige[edit]

Prestige can be lost in the following ways:

- Being successfully invaded (5% prestige loss).
- Being overwhelmed while invading.
- Hitting someone below 60% your size.

Prestige losses are instant.
