View Full Version : Recruiting - Your City Needs You!

What is the formula behind getting recruits (other than conscription :rolleyes:)?

Is it tied to tax rate? I've been playing a while with zero tax trying to increase the population - the way I see it, who wouldn't want to live in a city with no tax! However, I'm not getting ANY recruits - Morale, Loyalty and Health are all 100%.

How's your population vs construction? If the workers needed to keep up and build is less than 100% you won't get recruits. I'm not quite sure where recruits will start volunteering but it's somewhere around 105% of needs. I see your population is at about 1400 or so. Except for the recruits I got after the 1st battle, I didn't get any recruits until I hit about 3k. However, I DID have a lot of construction going on then and was almost always below 100% until recently.

Recruits are also limited by the size of your army. Once you reach about 20% of your population, recruits will be limited.
