Conquest is an online multiplayer strategy video game developed by Jaxel that was released on 2009-04-22 as an add-on for vBulletin 3.8 and later added to the jiggmin.com forum on June 4th.[1][2] Although commonly believed among the community to be made by Jiggmin, this version was merely an edited variant.

Gameplay

Users begin by choosing one of three nations that they will fight for permanently: Atlantis, the Soviet Republic or Sweden, with each possessing their own unique bonuses. After completing the selection process, players are given a village to maintain, 25 turns, 100 gold, 1 troop and 1 spy.[3]

The game works off a real time clock where everyone receives 1 turn and 2 gold every five minutes. Gold is used to purchase weapons, armor, advanced training for the user's troops and hire spies to execute espionage missions. Turns can generate further gold, recruit troops, run spy missions and perform raids on enemy villages to deplete their military along with steal gold and weapons among others. After being attacked, the victim is sent a private message on the forum detailing the battle, causalities and lost equipment.[4]

Shut Down

Conquest shut down on 2011-01-21 when Jiggmin upgraded his website to vBulletin 4.0 as it was not compatible with the software. Its concept would later be re-worked into War of the Web.[5]

Trivia

  • While teams began equally in terms of control, Atlantis quickly became the leading nation to the point of having nearly 100% dominance.[6]
  • Version 2 was posted a week after the game was added, though specific changes are unknown as the announcement blog wasn't fully archived.[7]
