The Watchtower is a tool to help new and experienced players filter information, especially in the middle to late game. In short, it discovers incoming attacks and tagged them automatically with the most important information. Of course, the watchtower also has costs, which is why a strategic placement is important and he is an interesting target for offensive players.
 
Each player can build any number of watchtowers. These can be destroyed with catapults.

And this is how the watchtower works:
+
<tr>
Any attack within the reach of a watchtower will be tagged with the strength of the troop and whether it is headed by a noble family.
+
<th>1</th>
This not only concerns attacks on villages that are within range of a watchtower, but attacks that extend beyond the reach of a watchtower.
+
<th>{{Res|12,000|14,000|10000}}</th>
The tags are retained even if the attack is out of range of a watchtower.
+
<th>{{Workers|500|500}}</th>
The tags are displayed in the village overview. Players with an active premium account will also see them in the Arrivals overview.
 
The range can be increased by removing the watchtower.
 
In the browser version, the range of the watchtower is shown on the map. Users of the mobile versions must call up the Watchtower page.
 
If an incoming attack is detected but is not yet within range of the watchtower, it is marked with an ax and an eye.
 
Restriction: If a village is conquered, which is within the range of a watchtower, but has no watchtower itself and attacks on the newly conquered village, they are not tagged.
 
By clicking on a watchtower, the side of the watchtower opens with a brief description of the building and a map that graphically depicts the current range of this watchtower on the small map.

The watchtower is a tool to help new and experienced players to filter information, especially in mid to late game. In short it detects incoming attacks and automatically tags them with the most important information. Experienced players will still be able to gather more information by watching incoming attacks closely. Of course the watchtower also comes with its own costs, which makes strategic placement important and can also be an interesting target for offensive players.

  • Every attack that comes into range is tagged with the army size and if it is led by a nobleman.
  • This does not only affect attacks on villages within the range but also attacks travelling through the range.
  • Tags on the attack are kept, even if the attack moves out of range.
  • Tags are being displayed on the village incoming overview and for PA players on the incoming screen.
  • The detection range can be increased by upgrading the tower, as per the below tables
  • On browsers the watchtower range is displayed on the map. Mobile users have to use the watchtower screen.

How do I know if an attack will pass through my watchtower radius! - Attacks that will be tagged by your watchtowers will have an "eye" icon next to the command. The attack will be tagged once it passes into your watchtower range.

I just conquered a new village - will my watchtower tag the attacks that are incoming to it? - Only attacks that are sent while you own the village will definitely be tagged. Anything sent before you conquered the village will likely not be tagged - you can tell by looking for the "eye" icon next to the command.

I just built a new watchtower and my watchtower is not going to tag the attacks that are incoming! - Only attacks that are sent after you built the watchtower will definitely be tagged. Anything sent before you built the watchtower may not be. As always, you can check by looking for the "eye" icon next to the command!

Im trying to test the watchtower to see how it works - but my tribe mates attack is tagged with or without the watchtower and I cannot see an eye before it reaches my watchtower range! - To test your watchtower, temporarily stop sharing commands with the player helping you to test it. Sharing commands means all attacks are visible and auto-tagged so there is nothing left for the watchtower to tag!

My watchtower didn't tag the attack until just before the attack hit! - Watchtowers will only tag an attack when it enters the watchtowers radius. If the village under attack is close to the edge of your radius. then it will only tag shortly before the attack lands! Perhaps you need to level up the watchtower, or even build a new one to expand your coverage!
