The Map is divided into 3 main views:
- The Continent View, which will give you a general view of the continent you are currently in, as well as its Districts, Mines and Capitals;
- The District View, which will show you the Bases and Armies stationed inside the District you are in;
- The Base View, which will give you access to the Base's actions, like upgrading the Base or Training Units if it's your Base or sending an attack if it belongs to an enemy.
Districts are small sectors that each Continent is separated into. They're where players can find Bases or build new ones. There are 3 main types of Districts:
These compose the majority of the World Map. You can build Military Bases in these Districts;
These are also Guerilla districts, but are located next to a bed of water. Players can use these Districts to Build Military Bases that have the capacity to produce Navy Units.
Country Capitals are only accessible to players within a Squad. They have a fixed amount of Bases. If you're a member of a Squad, you can attack and conquer these Bases to earn points in the Leaderboard through Capital Warfare.

To get around in the world, players need to understand movement. There are 2 ways that players can move around the map:
- Clicking on the Unit Flag: This will allow you to click on Move and drag the cursor to wherever you want on the map. Clicking on another continent will allow you to move those units to another continent.
- Clicking on any district will have the “Move” button on the top right corner in the District Sidebar. This will show all units that are available to be moved in that continent. You can also select different continents from the top menu when moving to a district.
Movement takes time, but you do have the option to accelerate unit movements via WWO-Influence. The cost to accelerate unit movements are determined by each given distance.
