Clan-based Servers

Countries not playing from within an established clan on clan-based servers will usually be attacked more frequently by other players! It is recommended that new players seek clans to play in on these servers. If you do not receive recruitment messages in-game, try introducing yourself on any of the Alliance,Free For All, or Team forums.

Earth Empires has six different game servers, each with their own particular set of rules and/or game constants. The general mechanics of countries on each server is constant, but each server has different rule sets which may allow certain things like clan play, or the maximum number of turns you may have at one time to name a couple. Depending on the server, these conditions will vary. This section addresses each of the server types and their individual nuances.

After you have created an account and logged in, you will be placed on the portal page. For now we'll just discuss each server and what they are. We'll also try to recommend which servers are generally better suited for newer or experienced players.
