Rule: Starting today, there will be a slight change to the rules of Tribe Domination. Tribes who merge during Tribe Domination, will now be disqualified from Tribe Domination. All other functions of Tribe Domination will remain the same. In regards to the new rule it has come to my attention that A, players don't understand when Tribal Domination begins or B, what is meant by the rule in general. Answer: Any tribe that merges during domination will be disqualified. Answer: No ONLY during Tribe Domination. Answer: Only one tribe can win even with a family tribe if a merge occurs during Tribe Domination to get to 80% (to win the world) that tribe will be disqualified. Answer: Merging does not equal a ban. All this rule means is during Tribal Domination any merge that occurs will disqualify that tribe from winning the world. Answer: All players are/have been asked to contact support for any questions. Answer: No, as this was done during Tribal Domination. Answer: Yes you are free to merge before Tribal Domination and you will not be disqualified from winning the world! Answer: When the 1st ranked Tribe hits an ownership of 70% of the villages, we will start the Tribe Domination phase for this realm. Which would be determined by a number of things (Top 10 ranked Tribes (total villages)/Top 5 Tribes and their ownership of the total villages). Answer: Contact support as these players do not understand the rule and support can provide the correct answer. Answer: When the 1st ranked Tribe hits an ownership of 70% of the villages, we will start the Tribe Domination phase for this realm. During this time (Tribe Domination) any merges will not be accepted for ANY tribe. Answer: When the 1st ranked Tribe hits an ownership of at least 80% of the villages, that Tribe dominates this realm. Answer: First check the Realm forum (as all players do). If you still are unsure then contact support.
