What determines which opponents appear on my islands?
Matchmaking is level-based. Players are matched by comparing their individual Ascension Levels.
In the beginning of the game, there will mostly be easier opponents whose level is the same as yours or even a bit lower. As you level up and unlock more island areas, the game will start providing you with opponents whose Ascension Level is higher than yours, which means that their defense is potentially stronger, making them harder to beat.
What is the difference between defended and undefended islands?
Any island of yours is defended as long as a Hero is placed on it. Islands with no Heroes on them are undefended.
Why are my Heroes back at Mount Olympus?
When another player successfully attacks you, you will lose one of your defended islands. A Hero which is defending an island is automatically returned to Mount Olympus when his island is lost. This will happen less often if you build a strong defense. Heroes with a low level are more likely to return to Mount Olympus in comparison to Heroes with a high level.

How do I unlock Monster Units?
The Monster Units are unlocked by beating each Monster's special missions. These missions are available as soon as you unlock the island area which is home of the particular monster. Each mission can be played as many times as you want until you manage to beat it. When a mission was beaten, the corresponding island will become a regular island which can be taken over by other players.
Frequently Asked Questions
If you don't log into your game for 7 days, your account's status will be set to "inactive". Inactive accounts no longer show up on the Leaderboards or for matchmaking purposes.

If the inactive account was the Leader of an alliance, leadership will be automatically transferred to the General that has been a member of the alliance for the longest period of time.
You can reactivate your account at any point by simply logging into the game again.

Footsoldier: This player can donate to the Alliance and prolong or enable Boosts by using his/her own Gold. This player cannot kick or recruit other members.
If the General is inactive during an extended period of time, the Leadership will automatically be transferred to another player. This automatic mechanism serves to prevent "leaderless" alliances, should an alliance general choose to quit the game or take a longer break.
Unfortunately, the support team cannot directly edit alliance ranks due to technical reasons. In order to regain your position, please make sure to contact the current general and ask for a promotion.
General Gameplay Knowledge
Defending my Island
- Which Defense Buildings can I use to strengthen my Island?
You can use Towers
... and Barricades.
- I am missing a tower. Where did it go?
You most likely simply placed it in your inventory without noticing. To check your inventory, click on an empty space in your defense path and select the type of tower that you are missing. You can then choose between constructing an entirely new tower and selecting the ones that you have in storage. A small number will tell you how many towers of a certain type you have stored.
To deliberately place a tower in your inventory, simply select it and click on the storage box icon at the buttom of the screen.
- How can I edit my path or increase its length?
In order to increase the length of your path, you first need to upgrade your Gate of Apollo.
To edit your path after upgrading the gate, follow these steps:
Check if you have enough free path length available for the changes you wish to carry out.
New paths must start and end on an existing piece of path and can lead across grass, trees, and stones, but not across ruins. You can remove ancient ruins by investing Gems.
Tap and hold on an existing piece of path, then move your finger along the way where you want your new path to be.
Why does a player earn Trophies even if he/she has not been able to defeat my base?
Depending on the relation between your defensive strength and the offensive strength of your opponent, your attacker may be able to earn currency by simply progressing in your base and only destroying parts of it.
- How can I protect my Island from attacks?
You just have to tap on the Island you wish to protect, then on the icon with the boat. You will then be offered to hire a fleet to protect this Island.
Attacking an Island
To attack an Island, you first need to go to the Map. Once there, select a Hero and move him to the Island you which to attack. To do so, hold-tap and drag the portrait of the Hero to the Island you wish to attack
Alternatively, you can tap on the Island you wish to attack. If you then tap the Attack button, the last selected or used Hero will automatically be chosen to attack the Island.
The following units are available for battle:
In order to summon some of your troops, you need to have enough Morale points (represented by the blue bar). The maximum amount of Morale Points increases with your Hero's level. It is possible that you cannot use some troops until you increase your Hero's level - even if you just have unlocked these troops.
To unlock certain mythological creatures, you have to conquer a specific group of Islands related to these creatures. See the list below for more details:
You are matched against players in your Ascension Level range. The system automatically selects fitting opponents that offer you a manageable challenge as well as a decent rewards.
You can attack other player's bases by moving one of your Heroes to their Islands.
The game compares your offensive capabilities with the defensive strength of your potential opponent and uses this data to calculate the maximum number of trophies you can earn.
The bigger the challenge, the more trophies you will be able to earn. Please note that it is also possible to lose many trophies if you fail against a comparatively weak defense - but only a few trophies if you are unable to beat a strong defense.
