The new world Omicron will have a speed of 2. There is going to be a cap of 60 on alliances, as the team at Grepolis feels "less is more". Of course, the standard beginners protection of 5 days will be implemented, giving you time to get your feet on the ground. Rather than having the standard conquering system, this new world is going to feature the "revolt" system.
Grepolis is a free-to-play strategy browser game where you are given your own island to create your own empire from the ground up. This Greek-themed browser game offers you the chance to join alliances, conquer your neighbors and create a prosperous city to become the mightiest ruler.
