Greetings Commanders! Have you ever been in a situation where you need to be away for couple of weeks and you'd like someone else to watch over your bases during the time you're away? If you answered yes, we have good news for you! Holiday Substitution is a new feature which was introduced in the latest patch. This new feature allows you to assign a substitute player for the time you're away.

When enabled, the substitute player can access your account. Substituting is a world specific feature; if you play on several worlds you need to assign several substitutes. Your substitute will be able to chat, use your mail and post in forums. Your substitute can buy or sell buildings and units or research new technologies so choose your substitute wisely you don't want to come back from your holiday and notice that all of your buildings were sold and your bases were destroyed shortly afterwards. Please note that a substitute player cannot attack other players, use player relocation tool or change alliance rights.

Assigning a substitute is two phased process and it requires action from both players.

Player 1
  1. Go to options menu in the bottom right corner of your display
  2. Open 'Substitution' tab
  3. Type the name of the player you want assign as your substitute and click send request
If you have purchased funds, you may choose whether or not your substitute is able to use your funds by checking the box "Allow substitute to spend your funds".

Player 2
  1. A message telling that you have a substitution request appears to your mailbox
  2. Go to options menu in the bottom right corner of your display
  3. Open 'Substitution' tab
  4. Scroll down till you see substitution requests and accept (or reject) the substitution request
Substituting is limited by the number of days you've been playing on a server you can assign a substitute for half the time you've been playing. As an example, if you have been playing 180 days, you can assign a substitute for a maximum of 90 days. Please note that you cannot visit the world during the time you have a substitute. Once you log in, the substitution will be canceled.

We'll see you on the battlefield, Commander!
