Similar to other free-to-play games, it consists of various seasons. Every season introduces new and exciting changes to the game.
This means that you can enjoy new Commanders, troops and structures every time a new season launches. Please note that the game performs a season reset from time to time.
What is a season reset?
It is important to note that a season has to end in order for the next season to start. Once a season ends, the game’s developers perform a season reset. This means that the regions, and all the tiles your faction captures will reset. Moreover, your city’s progression will also reset.
That being said, your equipment and Commanders will be carried over to the next season. It is believed that a season reset gives everyone a fair chance to begin a new chapter. It can be seen as a clean slate, where nobody has an advantage or disadvantage against other factions and players.

Please note that the Commanders depend on your faction. This means that you might not be able to obtain an evil Commander if you form part of a good faction.
The neutral units include, but are not limited to Keepers, SeaFarers and Vanguards. Moreover, Variags and Gundabad are 2 new factions that have been added in Season 3.
What happened to structure buffs?
The structure buffs, which are a feature introduced in Season 2, are now locked for structure development. When you occupy a control point, your faction has to work together to develop the structure through structure tasks to unlock its full potential.
In order to complete the tasks, you have to send a Commander to the control point from which they can complete a set of 10 different tasks.
It is recommended that you work with your faction, as this will speed up the process. Once you have unlocked the structure’s full potential, you and your faction will receive the buffs it provides.
You should remember that season 3 provides an entire new look at earning Season Medals. This means that you must be active and contribute towards your faction’s success in order to receive maximum Season rewards.
Moreover, a combination of capturing control points and prestige will determine how many Season Medals you will receive. That being said, betrayers, spies and alt-accounts may have a harder time earning rewards during this season.
