Players can increase their march size in Evony through various methods, though some methods may require more time and resources than others.
Evony: The King’s Return invites players to assume the role of a lady or a lord in the medieval era to build an empire from the ground up. Since this mobile game replicates the classic video game, Evony, players can enjoy similar content, mechanics, and features in both games.
There are various types of activities and gaming modes that you can join, including a player-versus-player mode where you can attack and defeat other players.
Players can defeat bosses, located at random areas on the map, construct new buildings, and gather resources. Furthermore, you can train many types of troops and participate in occasional events, among other things.
What is march size?
March size refers to the number of troops you can send out in a single attack. Though, to some, it may seem like a simple element in the game, it can have a significant impact on your gameplay. This is because the march size also determines how many resources you can gather on a run.
If your march size is only 300, you can only send 300 troops to gather resources, which, in turn, means that you have to send more troops to gather additional resources over a period of time.
Your march size can also influence how successful your battles are, so for example, if your march size is 500 and your opponent’s is 200, your chances of defeating them are relatively high. However, if your march size is lower than your opponent’s, you may likely lose the battle.
Evony: How to increase march size
