[Guide] How Cities Work
  • If any of you were around for DC5 or earlier, this may seem familiar
  • Cities can be built and gain prestige and glory through a tier system
  • A staff member must approve your city before it can be ranked up
How to Rank Up
  • To rank up to the next city tier, you must meet all the requirements of that tier and have a staff member judge your town.
  • If the staff member determines that your town is eligible for rank up, they will grant you the bonuses of that tier
  • You must then update your city tier in your forum post to complete the rank up
