Thank you Dimspace, I will add those tonight. As well, i will add the ability to show the correct answer if the test taker gets it wrong and a better score system. Right now though, there are only 3 questions and 2/3 of the people taking the test are missing one of them.

Ok more questions have been posted (not just the ones recommended, thank you for the post). As well, more funny answers and images have been added as well. If you have test questions that you would like added to it, please post them here.

Next Update: More questions, better scoring, more possible answers, more funny answers, more funny images, more post update mythical units questions.

72 People have now taken the Alliance Entrance Exam. It is a work in progress but a lot of people got 2 of the questions wrong.

Questions most people get wrong:
1. Recommended minimum city size for conquest as stated on wiki
2. What can fire ships kill?

It tells me that very few people actually read the wiki info.


yeh, the joke answers kinda distract people into answering what is funny rather than what is correct.

and in my experience a fair few players dont know the easiest way to get past fireships is just to sail on past em, so funny seeing a noob with 100 fireships get his troops slaughtered and wall trashed by an "unescorted" attack :D


Nice Test. Thank you for taking the time to make that.



Dime, can you send me a few of those "unescorted" attacks?

Please, please, please.....


Yea, any way to display wrong answers? Also the wiki is a guide, a well placed/built 1500 pt city is much better than a trash 2k+ city in a trash location :p

(Edit so not double post)

Some more challenging questions, i hope all you noobs know the answers ;) :

- When is it viable to use fireships ingame on an ongoing basis?
- What is a scorched earth policy?
- What advantages does an Oligarchy have over traditional alliances?
- In what situations is social engineering a very valid tactic ingame?

I got 9/10, no clue which one I missed. Anyway, I really thought that "What are Biremes used for?" question. I found that seriously funny.
