Capital Warfare was a feature introduced in Season 3 of 2017. For 72 Hours 5 Squads participate in epic battles conquering Capital Bases. Each Capital Base rewards a certain number of points depending on the period of the Season.
How to Compete
The Squad Leaderboard is composed of Squads that are currently competing by participating in Capital Warfare, and conquering Capital Bases to gain points.
Each Squad starts out as Unranked and once they get their first points, they immediately placed in the Leaderboard.
At the end of every capital warfare, the top 2 Squads are promoted to the League above, and at the same time, the bottom 2 Squads are demoted to the League below. The promoted and demoted squads will be at the bottom/top of their new League respectively. At the end of the Season, the top 5 Squads host their respective country's flags in the podium.
The matchmaking system in World War Online matches you against 5 random Squads in your League. Matchmaking will occur every Sunday at 18:00 UTC and Thursday at 06:00 UTC, 6 Hours before the Capital opens for Conquer.
In Gold League, the Matchmaking system will randomly choose one of this possible setups:
- 1st group: 1, 2, 4, 6, 8
- 2nd group: 3, 5, 7, 9, 10

Capital Conquer Cycle
Capital Warfare lasts for 72 Hours, from the opening of a Capital until it closes:
- Capitals begin their Conquer Cycles at 00:00 UTC.
- You can check when a Capital will open through the District Sidebar.
The 72 Hours are divided into 72 Conquer Cycles, where every 1 Hour, Squads will gain points based on the number of Capital Bases they own, multiplied by the Base Value.
During Capital Warfare, all other squads and players are invisible in the Capital District except the Squads that have this Capital allocated to them.
Conquering a Capital Base
In Capital Districts, you cannot Attack bases, but simply Conquer them. Conquering is a special action, and does not require you to train a unit. When you click on Conquer on a Capital Base, you will automatically generate a General which is a Tactical Infantry that is capable of Conquering Bases.
The General will count as an Extra Unit, and it cannot fight alone. You must send units along with the General to fight and conquer the Base that you are attacking. The General appears on the 11th Wave of the Battle.
- To Conquer a base, the General must survive the outcome of the battle.
- The battle must be a Decisive Victory, i.e. it cannot be settled as a Tie Breaker.
- If the General dies, but you win the battle, you will not Conquer the base.
