Founding or joining an alliance is necessary to win, in Crown of the Gods. Alliances can hold up to 100 members, of which at least 1 must be an Alliance Leader. Once in an alliance, players can begin building Temples, which will in turn give them loyalty to the Gods. Temple-building is essential to becoming a Champion of the Gods!
When an alliance builds eight level 10 temples, one level 10 temple dedicated to each of the eight Gods of Aschendal, they become Champions of the Gods! As such, each member will earn a Crown of the Gods, which will be displayed in their player history, and also beside their name in the game chat. Their alliance will also be recorded on our Champions page, so their name will forever be remembered!
Only one crown can be won per World. Although crowned players can join other uncrowned alliances after achieving their own crown, if the other alliance then goes on to crown, the already-crowned player will not recieve a 2nd crown in their player history, nor will they be recorded on the Champions page. Players can only achieve multiple crowns by winning on multiple Worlds.
If an alliance achieves the status of Champion of the Gods first in a World, their alliance name becomes "taken". As such, on future worlds, only the Alliance Leaders from that #1 Crowning alliance, will be able to set back up an alliance of that name. If such an alliance had more than one Alliance Leader, all Alliance Leaders will have the capability of setting up an alliance of the same name on a future World. In this case, it would be whichever of the previous Leaders sets it up first, on the new World.
Below a running list can be found, of the players who have, or in the past had, alliance names reserved to them:
|Name||Alliance Name||World Crowned||Date|
|Deuce||Dances with Poles||World 05||17/02/17|
|OldShang||Dances with Poles||World 05||17/02/17|
|Tinkerspell||Dances with Poles||World 05||17/02/17|
|DMCorp||Domina Abr Wydra||World 04||13/02/17|
|Truedat||Domina Abr Wydra||World 04||13/02/17|
|Deuce||The Officers Club||World 01||15/08/16|
|OldShang||The Officers Club||World 01||15/08/16|
|Tinkerspell||The Officers Club||World 01||15/08/16|
|Andartianna||Organised Chaos||Pre Worlds||-|
|emmabunny||Feral Platypi||Pre Worlds||-|
|Fact||Pact of Gods||Pre Worlds||-|
|Ferbius||The Wolf Pack||Pre Worlds||-|
|Greety||Gods Among Men||Pre Worlds||-|
|jittu||silent killers||Pre Worlds||-|
|Rapier||Controlled Chaos||Pre Worlds||-|
If a player that has a name reserved to them does not wish to be leader of their alliance on a new World, they simply need to create the alliance, promote another player to Alliance Leader, and then demote themselves.
Once 3 alliances have earned crowns, the World will stay open for 30 additional days. If other alliances (4th, 5th, etc) achieve eight level 10 Temples during this time period, they will also earn a crown; which will show in their in-game player history, and on the Champions page, in the usual way.
The CotG team aren't totally heartless however, if your alliance is close to crowning and your World's additional 30 days are drawing to a close; if you submit a support ticket and let us know, we'll see what we can do for you regarding leaving the World open a few days longer ;)
