Conquering Ruler aka Bring Your Enemy

When entering unplayed region and you plan to become ruler, i.e. conquer it, it is good to know how Ruler badges are created.

Without going into the ugly details, two principles apply:

  • drop high (level) badges of your production.
    • as high level sum is honoured by the queuing.
  • bring (low) badges of several other players with you and drop one of each player.
    • queuing also depends on the number of badges by different players in a quadrant.

Note: This strategy can speed you up for ruler badges, but not for mappers.
