Attacking is a way to occupy a territory, gain additional resources by pillaging or eliminating a hostile army.
There are two different ways to perform an attack

- Launch the attack from your rally spot
Clicking the Map button will give an overview of the province you are in and your neighbors. To attack, click on any tile in the map view to gain details of the area. Displayed is some key information that is vital to a successful attack.
