Urgent Help allows Coalition Members to assist each other by sending Resources, sending Reinforcements, or sending Attacks to requested targets.
Urgent Help lets the more experienced Coalition Members lend a hand to those newer, less experienced Archons.
Each time you request Urgent Help, your Coalition Members will see your Request in the "Urgent Help" section of the "Coalition Help" tab ("Coalitions" interface), which can be accessed from the right-hand side of your screen.
- All Help Requests are visible to all Coalition Members.
- Urgent Help Requests are time-sensitive, and will expire after a certain time - even if unfulfilled.
There are three types of Urgent Help Requests:
- Resource Requests
- Reinforcement Requests
- Attack Requests
If you are in urgent need of Reinforcements, you can create a Request for additional Units by clicking the "Reinforcement Requests" button in the "Urgent Help" section. You can also add a message to your Request, containing any information you deem important, in the corresponding text field. Please be aware that you can only ask for Reinforcements to defend your City. Every Coalition Member is allowed to create this type of Request, although each Coalition Member may only have one Reinforcement Request active at any one time. Coalition Members may specify how long they wish their Request to be active for. After the time limit expires, the Request will be removed from the list.
You can ask your Coalition Members to send you Resources by clicking the "Resource Requests" button in the "Urgent Help" section. Simply select the type of Resource you require and the amount you need, then create the Request. Once this Request has been fulfilled, or after its time limit expires, it will be removed from the list.
You can create Attack Requests by clicking the "Attack Requests" button in the "Urgent Help" section. Attack Requests allow you to ask your fellow Coalition Members to assist you by attacking other Cities, Pantheons, or Coalition Capitals. Coalition Hegemons are responsible for authorizing Members to create Attack Requests on Pantheons and Coalition Capitals, but all Coalition Members can create requests to attack other Cities. You can view a list of all the Archons that have replied to your Attack Request and the strength of the Units they sent to assist you (not including any statistic enhancers or active Bonuses affecting these Units). Only the Attack Request creator is able to see this list, no one else.
The same target cannot appear on a Coalition's Urgent Request list more than once. Each Request has its own time limit: after this expires, the Request will automatically be deleted. However, you can always delete your own Requests manually if you wish.
Requests are ordered according to the time when they were created, with the exception of High-Priority Requests. The Coalition Hegemon, as well as other Coalition members they authorize, may give "High-Priority" status to certain Requests. Requests marked "High-Priority" will be placed at the top of the "Urgent Requests" list, making them more visible to Coalition Members.
REINFORCEMENT REQUESTS VIA THE TRACKING TAB
This is especially useful when hostile forces are on their way to your City, meaning that you urgently need Reinforcements. You can create this type of Help Request by clicking the "Request Help from your fellow Coalition Members" button in your War Council, in the "Tracking" tab.
