To spy

Screen when spying

While training troops, I'm sure you noticed a troop called Spy, but you may not know how to use them. On this page you can find anything and everything you need to know about Spies, Clairvoyance, and sentinels.

When spying other players, you do not have to include a general in the march. This is the only time they will obtain intel. If sent as an attack, they require a general, will fight as any other troop would, and can be defeated as any other troop would be. The higher your clairvoyance, the more information you will collect. When hunting for resources or walls, food is of little importance to consider due to rations being easily obtained from Anthropus camps.

  • Click "Spy"
  • Select one Spy (only one is needed), although the more spies you use the better- as you have a higher chance of being victorious.

If this one Spy dies, this means that the other player is defending with Spies. You will need more than 10x the enemy's spies to win without losses. See below Spy report.

If your Spy/Spies are not defeated, you will be able to see:

  • (Exact) Number of Resources (minus Gold) City or Outpost
  • (Exact) Number of Troops defending City or Outpost
  • Owner of Wilderness
  • (Exact) Number of Researches City
  • Last Login Time/Date City

The actual amount of information you will receive depends on the level of Clairvoyance you had researched at the time you obtained the Spy Report. The information is listed in order of required research.

Must have a level 3 Science Center to begin researching Clairvoyance.

What determines how much information I get when I am spied or attacked?[]

This depends on the level of your Sentinel in your City. If you have a level 1 Sentinel you will not receive much information about the attacker and the information you receive can be vague or erroneous.

If your Outposts are spied or attacked, you will receive an empty warning, followed by a Battle Report unless you have a level 11 Sentinel. This is why it is not a good idea to leave troops stationed in your Outposts for long periods of time.
