Whenever a player successfully attacks your base it will begin to burn and will lose defense over time. If your base defense drops to 0 your Base will be automatically relocated to a random world map tile.
If an enemy manages to defeat you in your Base, your HQ will begin to burn for a specific amount of time. During that time an amount of Burn damage will be applied to your Base Defense. Each consecutive attack on your base will cause core Buildings to burn (randomly selected). Burning Buildings will add an additional amount of burn damage to the "Total Burns" increasing the defense loss amount.
Your Base's current Defense, "Burn Time" and "Total Burns" can be found by going to your City Wall and selecting the "DEFENSES" button.
While your Base is burning a debuff, that negatively affects the functionality of your burning Buildings is applied. The lower your Defense falls the higher the debuff effects will be. The debuff affects base districts as follows:
- Headquarters - reduced construction speed
- Logistics Hub - reduced resource output
- Army Command - reduced recruitment speed
- Civil Center – reduced troop recovery speed
- Science Camp – reduced science point recharge speed
- Tech Development – reduced crafting speed
- Social Embassy - reduced reinforce capacity
To stop the defense loss, tap on your City Wall and tap on the Defense button.
You can Extinguish all fires at once using Free Extinguish or Gold (The free Extinguish has a 12 Hour cool-down)
Extinguishing the burning fires will stop the defense but the debuff will remain until your base Defense has been recovered. You can use Gold to Repair all districts and recover the lost defense immediately.
