Commander,

Here are some brief instructions on how to use the chat feature and send gifts and requests in Empires & Allies.

It's very simple.

On the main screen / interface, tap the arrow located between Achievements and Alliances.

    Commander,

    Tap the gear icon on the right-hand side of your screen to access the Settings menu.

    img1424177666293-settings_new.png

    In this menu, you will find 3 different tabs:

    General tab: Here you'll be able to change the basic game settings. Tap here to change the Music and Sound settings; connect your game to Facebook and the Game Center; select the language; switch accounts or view the game's credits.

    img1421334202760-set-general.jpg

    Help: Tap the "Help" tab to get some basic information about the game (ZID, Device and Version of the game). Tap "Player Support" to contact our Support team.

    img1421334216251-set-help.jpg

    Legal: On this tab you can access Zynga's Terms of Service and Privacy Policy.

    Now that you have your settings ready, go back to your HQ and protect it!

    Good luck!

    Commander,

    Empires & Allies rewards you for your hard work training troops, upgrading buildings or winning battles.

    img1424178039187-achieve_1.png

    You can collect those rewards, in form of gold, in the Achievements tab. Tap the small world icon on the left-hand side of the screen to access them.

    Good luck!

    Commander,

    Train your Troops because it's time to battle!

    Collect loots during the battle. You will have 3 minutes to complete it. To start a battle, tap the Globe icon in the bottom right-hand corner of your screen.

    img1420704924103-Battle.jpg

    Choose your destination on the Map.

    img1424187897362-batt.png

    Scout - Tap Scout to view the enemy's Headquarters. Unsure if you can destroy it? You can always go back to the Map by tapping the Globe icon to scout another Headquarters.

    img1424187923186-scout.png

    Attack - Tap Attack to start the Battle. You will have to pay Fuel so make sure you have enough.

    img1420706866935-Attack.jpg

    Deploy - To deploy your Troops, tap the Troops that you want to deploy, then the Landing Zone. Each squad deploys separately.

    img1424187962611-deploy.png

    To deploy your Flare, select the Flare (bottom right) that you want to use, then tap your target.

    • Command Points - Gain Command Points by destroying enemy structures. This refills after each battle.

    img1420708585031-points.jpg

    • Command Powers - Some Command Powers launch devastating attacks, while others control your units. You will need Command Points to be able to use it.

    img1420709557487-CP.jpg

    Change Mission - If you want to change mission, simply tap the Change Mission button. Changing a mission will reset any stars that you already earned from that mission.

    img1424188021920-change_mission.png

    The Battle is completed when you destroy the enemy's Headquarters or when the time runs out. You will receive a pop up confirming your victory (if applicable) and your casualties.

    img1424188040178-victory.png

    Good luck!

    img1424182964766-def_new.png

    3. Resources

    The number that appears in each tab represents the number of Operations, Defenses and Resources currently available for you to build.

    Good luck!

    Commander,

    Gather your friends and create a mighty Alliance or join one!

    To create or join an Alliance you must first connect to Facebook or Game Center. Tap the Alliances icon (3 heads) on the left-hand side of your screen. You can also build the Alliance building. Simply tap it and then tap the Alliance icon. From here you can search for your friends' Alliances to join!

    img1424184460717-alliance_new.png

    Create an alliance in the Comm Center by tapping the "Create". Enter the Alliance Name, Alliance Description, Required Medals, and Required Level, then tap the Create Alliance button.
