No citizenship requirement on joining a Military Unit
Any player can now join a Military Unit even if he has a different citizenship than the Military Unit.
Second Commanders attributions
Second Commanders will have the same privileges as commanders in terms of setting daily orders (this does not involve changing the Battle Priorities), firing members and inviting new ones.
Daily Order priority
The following changes apply to Daily Orders
- An order set by a Commander or Second Commander overrides the orders set by Captains
- An order set by a Captain will not override the orders set by Commanders and Second Commanders
- An order set by the Military Unit priorities can be overridden by the orders set by Commanders, Second Commander or Captains, respecting also the previous rules
- Orders set by the Commander and Second Commanders can override each other
Customizable access in Military Units
Commanders are now able to customize the access to their Military Units. There are three options available:
- Open access - Any player can join the Military unit as a recruit. To become a full member they will still need to reach a rank established by the Commander.
- Strict access - This will prevent any player below a specified rank to join the military unit, even as a recruit.
- Invite only access - This will prevent all players from joining the Military Unit. New members will be able to join only if invited by the Commander or Second Commanders.
We would like to clarify some aspects about how the Natural Enemy Law (NE) works in terms of timers. For example, let’s take these two cases:
Case 1: If a country has no NE, a NE can be set at any time via a "super majority law" which requires 66% of the Congress votes to pass, as long as the countries share a common border, as stated here.
Case 2: If a country has a NE set and wants to choose another NE (or unset) they can do so if 7 days (7x24 hours) have passed since the original NE bonus has become active ("set" implies that the law has passed and NE bonuses became active). This is mentioned here.
If a war with a NE closes because no common borders are available, the NE is also canceled, as stated here. After the NE is canceled, the country can choose a new NE, as per Case 1.
While the NE mechanics have not changed since it was initially introduced, the "days ago" proposal date format on the laws listing, along with the fact that the 7 days interval is computed since the law has passed and the NE is set do create confusion. Until now, this was solved by providing answers to the tickets sent by the country presidents who were inquiring about the inability to set a NE .
In order to remove the confusion and enable players to accurately compute the 7 days interval, we have added a “proposed at” timestamp on the laws page, as well as the timestamp showing when the current NE was set in the country/military pages.
If you want to share your opinion on this change or if you feel that other timers have similar problems that need to be addressed, we would love to hear about it on the Forum .
We have started a background server maintenance which will last for approximately 12 hours.
Please be aware that during this time you might encounter delays and desynchronization between actions, as well as delays in visual updates.
Thank you for your support and apologies for any inconvenience this may cause.
The Resource Concession law is now available to Country Presidents and Dictators.
Resource Concession is a Trading Relation and, as such, a country cannot have Resource Concession agreements with Hostile Countries. A Hostile Country in this context is defined by an existing War or Embargo between the involved parties.
Existing Resource Concession Agreements between countries will be stopped if/when either party Declares War or Embargo.
Concession Fees will be paid every day after Day change for the previous day, based on Gross Domestic Product. The Existing Resource Concessions will be stopped if the country does not have enough money in treasury to pay the fees.
Currently, a country cannot take more than 3 resources in concession at any given time. Resource Concession agreements can be extended before their expiration date.
Excerpt from the Forum Q&A:
Q: Will I rent just one particular resource from a region or do I have to rent every resource in that specific region? Am I conceding by territory or by specific resource?
A: Territory is not conceded. Concession is done per region and per resource. In order to rent all the resources in a region (let’s assume 3), 3 different concession laws will have to be passed.
Q: What happens when the country renting a resource also occupies the territory that the resource belongs to? Do they get 100% of the rented resource and 50% of the other resources on the territory or does everything go down to 50%, assuming no border?
A: You cannot concession resources to/from countries you are at war with, nor can you give into concession resources from conquered regions.
Q: How is GDP calculated?
A: Gross Domestic Product is calculated based on manufactured goods * average price. The GDP is country-specific.
Q: What is the resource concession limit?
A: A country cannot take more than 3 resources in concession at any given time.
Q: Is the concession limit applied to the country which owns the region or the country which receives the concession?
A: The concession limit is applied to the receiving country. As an example, France can give in concession all of its food resources, but France will only be able to receive 3 resources from other countries.
Q: Can the Concession Fee be affected by any other circumstances?
A: Yes, the Concession Fee will be affected by Tribute to other countries (which occupy their core regions) AND Dictatorship Upkeep. Eg: If a country under dictatorship rents a resource for which it has a 100,000 daily fee, dictatorship upkeep will consume half of the amount destined for the treasury.
Factories and Holdings
Considering the impact these changes will have on global and national economies, all citizens will be able to relocate their previously owned companies with no charge. Each company can only be moved without costs once. Based on the previous events, we do recommend not rushing into relocating, as you have a 30 days time frame to make your decision.
Also, for a period of 30 days (starting day 3,926) you will be able to dissolve previously owned (created before day 3,926) holdings for a full refund.
As eRepublik has entered its second decade of life we are working on a number of projects that, with your help, will disrupt the current status quo and increase the excitement and fun.
While we have been working hard over the last months on the internals of eRepublik and the mobile app, we are aware that from the players’ point of view there was little to be excited of in terms of changes and events.
For the next months we are planning the release of a number of new features that we believe, together with your support and feedback, will transform the eRepublik universe for the better.
All the features aim to solve some of the most frequently raised issues by you, with a focus on game ballance at both the country and the citizens’ level.
The first 2 projects are being deployed gradually to allow the community 1 month to offer feedback and adapt to the new changes.
Determination in Resistance Wars
Currently the determination is computed based of consecutive days under occupation since the last liberation no matter the occupant. Starting Day 3,929 determination will be computed for each occupant individually, based on the total number of days it held the region in the past 250 days.
The more a region is under occupation, the more its population gets the determination to overthrow the specific occupant. Once the liberation occurs, the natives will hold grudge against the former occupant for a while. This will allow the newly freed region to have a standing chance against the former occupant for a period of time. The determination in Resistance Wars will no longer reset when the region is re-conquered via MPP battle.
Example: Using the current formula, the Determination on day 3,750 will be 1.32 (computed for the last 60 days since the last liberation) against any country holding that region on day 3,750.
With the new formula, the determination against Invader A will be computed for the 140 days Invader A held that region over the last 250 days, resulting a total of 4.45. The determination against Invader B (valid if Invader B manages to conquer that region) is based on the 45 days the latter managed to hold the region over the target interval resulting a total of 1.14.
Against all other countries the determination factor will remain 1 as they did not hold that region in the interval.
All other mechanics regarding determination under occupation will remain unchanged.
Determination after liberation
Determination after liberation will be computed based on the occupation determination factor the region had when the liberation battle started.
All mechanics regarding determination after liberation will remain unchanged.
The determination update will become effective on (23rd of August, Day 3,929 of the New World).
Natural Resource Concession
Before the new determination rules become effective, a new law will be made available to Country Presidents and Dictators: Natural Resource Concession.
The new law will act as a contract between countries - it will allow countries to increase the production bonus or to supplement the country income by renting regions and will require a 50% + 1 (simple majority) to pass.
A country will only be able to concede resources from its original regions that are not under foreign occupation. Once accepted by the congress of the Conceding Country (Country A), the law will then require approval by the Concessioning Country (Country B), just like the Peace Treaty law.
Once the Concession Contract is accepted by both countries, the resource will no longer count towards Country A’s productivity bonus and will be added to Country B’s resource pool as if connected to the Capital (full bonus). The Natural Resource, however, will not be uprooted from the Region and will still count towards the Region’s bonuses.
Every day the Resource Rental is in effect the Concessioning Country will be charged for the concession directly from treasury and the fee will be added the the Conceding Country (Country A)’s treasury.
The cost for concession (rent fee) is determined based on the rarity (bonus) of the resource concessioned and impact it has on the economy of the country holding the concession.
The concession fee will be additive and concessioning two or more resources from the same industry branch will increase the GDP fee accordingly. Example: renting Cattle (3% fee) and Deer (5% fee) will result in a total of 8% daily fee from the Food Industry GDP for the previous day.
A country holding a concession on a resource will benefit from the extra productivity bonus as long as the original country owns the region for which the concession is valid. Losing the region by the original owner will not break the concession (as they might be able to recover it by the end of the duration of the concession) and the Concessioning Country (Country B) will still be charged every day.
The number of resources a country can have under concession at once is limited. The regions under occupation will still grant productivity bonuses as previously. Companies established in a region where a concession is valid will still benefit from the region productivity of the concessioned resource but the country bonus will no longer apply.
Considering the disruptive potential of the changes all the players will be allowed a one time free relocation of their companies and holdings.
Let us know what you think of it on the eRepublik Forum.
Please note that today (Day 3,895) at 22:00 eRepublik time, we will perform a scheduled maintenance. Our server hamsters need to be fed, which should not take more than an hour.
Thank you for your understanding (and patience)!

This Valentine's Day
We have 4 surprises for you!
Showing some love to almost Battle and Sky Heroes
On a regular day, it's not fun to get second place when chasing that elusive medal. On this Valentine's Day we're showing some love to the players who almost get the medal, as the player who comes in 2nd place will get twice as much gold as the one winning the medal. This will apply to battles that end during the Valentine's Day event.
The "Love" button
2 years ago, the warmongers in the community were not big fans of the Love Rain and the 50% less damage. Because we believe in second chances, this year the button comes back with a twist: each time the Love button is pressed, damage will not be affected but as long as the battle is not epic (or contested) an extra prestige point will be awarded. A good opportunity for all our hardcore players to show some love to the casual ones that dont get their regular share of epic battles.
Everybody loves strength
Since Sharing is Caring, show some love to the little ones by lending them your strength. To do this, just go on a someone's profile and select "Switch Strength." If they will accept it, the strength will be switched for the next two hours. The 2 hours are counted from the moment the request is sent and the higher strength is not taken into account for setting a Division Max Hit.
Love in the media
Because love should be spread all around us, all articles published on Day 3,739 that are related to Valentine's Day and eRepublik will be eligible for a Plato Foundation sponsorship. All you have to do to enter the competition is to submit your article on the Plato Foundation Discord Channel (or have a friend submit it). The Board members will choose their favorite articles and up to 14 lucky journalists will receive a reward of 100 Gold. The list of winners will be published on Day 3741 (Friday, February 16th).
As some of you might have noticed, the dreaded Headless Chicken decided to join the party too and during some epic battles he interfered with some of our servers.
But since this 10 years Anniversary is dedicated to You, we decided to spite him and turn all ground battles epic for the duration of this weekend and allow everyone to fully enjoy this special Anniversary Weekly Challenge.
For the 10th Anniversary of the New World, we have prepared for you ten days of celebration with gifts and memorable fights!
Make sure to log in every day during our 10 days long party and claim the gifts we have so thoughtfully picked for you. Please note that claiming one reward will unlock the other one. Meaning that if you log in every day, you will receive all the rewards, in order. Skipping one day or more will mean that you will pick up the rewards from where you left. For example, if you fail to log in on the second day, the next time you log in, you will receive the second reward. We also have a hint (and a disclaimer) for you - keep in mind that, just like the last year - the gift you will receive on the last day of the rewards streak will not count for your True Patriot progress.
The 10th Anniversary also brings back Contested battles - unlike an Epic Battle, which gives an extra Prestige Point, the Contested Battle will give 2 extra Prestige Points, therefore 3 in total.
To make Epic Battles more epic, on eRepublik’s Anniversary (Day 3,653) will you get to deal 100% more Damage per hit in all Battles.
If you are wondering about anniversary promotions, keep in mind that Black Friday is fast approaching and you should start saving up for the offers to come.
Happy Anniversary to you and us!
Selecting the terrain
The attacking side's military leaders (Country Presidents, Dictators, Ministers of Defense, Ministers of Foreign Affairs and Prime Ministers) will have the ability to choose the Attack Strategy by picking the terrains for the battles to come.
In case of Resistance Wars, the Resistance Force is the attacker and the military leaders of the country fighting to liberate the region will be able to set the Attack Strategy.
Attackers can set their Attack Strategy from the battle console, the wars list and the country military tab.
The terrains selected are valid per battle (round) and are valid for all the divisions of the battle (round). During a campaign, every terrain can be selected only once.
For dictatorship or liberation wars, the order of the terrains is randomly generated at the start of the campaign.
If the military leaders of a country do not select a default Attack Strategy, a random one will be generated.
Battles in progress at day change
The ongoing battles (rounds) at the start of the event will not change their rules and will not have the military rank bonus.
They will also not count in setting the epic thresholds for epic battles under the event rules.
As announced, during the event, Battles will become epic once they go above the maximal damage of a battle fought in the same divisions over the last days. This will only apply during the Event days.
Only battles that started after day 3,615 00:00 will be considered for the maximal damage mechanic.
That also means that the first batch of battles to start after 3,615 00:00 will be the ones to set the first epic thresholds.
Battle 1 starts before 3,615 00:00 so standard rules and strength applies.
Battle 2 is the first one to start after 3,615 00:00 and no epic threshold is available for it.When it ends at 1h40 it will set the epic threshold of 1,000.
Battle 3 reaches the Epic threshold at 1h40 and becomes epic once battle 2 is finished. Battle 3 sets a new epic threshold of 1,200 when it ends.
Battle 4 reaches the Epic threshold at 2h20 and becomes epic. It sets a new epic threshold of 1,500 when it ends.
Battle 5 never makes the epic threshold and never becomes epic, ending at 1,200 damage.
Battle 6 and Battle 7 reach the 1,500 epic threshold at 3:20 and 3:40 respectively both becoming epics. Battle 6 sets a new threshold of 2,000 at 4:00. The new threshold will not affect the status of Battle 7 which remains epic until it ends.
The new threshold will only be considered for future battles or battles in progress that did not achieve epic status.
Based on your feedback, we have lowered the interval on which the threshold is based on to the previous 2 days .
A player can distribute its strength points at any time between one or more terrains.
As long as there are strength points available players can assign them to a terrain of their choice.
That means that a division one player with 40,000 strength points can decide to only allocate 20,000 Skill Points for a terrain at the beginning of the event and keep the remaining 20,000 for a later assignment.
If a player does not assign any Skill Points his skills for all the terrain will be 0.
A maximum of 40,000 Skill Points can be assigned to a terrain.
You can check other player’s skill by visiting their profile page or in their hovercards.
In order to reset the skills a Reset Token is required.
Once used all the strength distributed in Skill Points will be added back to the available strength pool and you will be able to assign it to new skills.
Each citizen will get 5 Reset Tokens at the beginning of the event and will be able to purchase up to 10 more Reset Tokens.
