Your march queue, also known as troop dispatch queue, and your troop capacity are two important stats in Rise of Kingdoms.
By increasing your march queue slots, you will be able to progress faster and gather more resources, as you can do more tasks in your kingdom at once.
March queue describes the number of troop dispatches you can do at once, while troop capacity describes the number of troops a commander can lead.
Having a higher troop capacity helps you increase your chances of success of marches, as you can bring a higher number of troops.
You can increase your number of march queue slots in Rise of Kingdoms by upgrading your City Hall. Your troop capacity can be increased by upgrading your City Hall, leveling up your commander, using commander talents, and some commander skills – more information on all of this below.

What is march queue?
March queue in Rise of Kingdoms, also known as troop dispatch slots, is the number of marches you can start at once.
Having a higher march queue is greatly beneficial, as it allows you to start more battles and march to more resources at the same time.
All governors begin with a march queue of 1.
Troops in the march queue are the ones deployed to hunt barbarians, gather resources, do city reinforcements and rallies.
Having multiple troop dispatch slots makes you need more troops to be successful, as you want to dispatch many troops in each march.
What is troop capacity?
Troop capacity in Rise of Kingdoms is the number of troops a commander can lead at a time.
Having a greater troop capacity allows you to bring more troops, which increases your chances of success in battles and on missions.
If you are struggling with farming barbarians of higher levels, etc., increasing your troop capacity can be the solution to your problem.
There are a couple of ways to increase troop capacity in the game, all of which are covered below.
How to increase march queue slots
You can increase march queue, also known as troop dispatch slots, in Rise of Kingdoms by upgrading your City Hall.
Every time you upgrade your City Hall after reaching a new age in the game, your march queue increases by one, which means you get one more troop dispatch slot.
Your march queue can increase to a maximum of five.
At the start of the game, you only have one march queue slot.
Your march queue increases by one at the following City Hall levels:
- City Hall Level 5: 2nd march queue slot unlocked (Bronze Age)
- City Hall Level 11: 3rd march queue slot unlocked (Iron Age)
- City Hall Level 17: 4th march queue slot unlocked (Dark Age)
- City Hall Level 22: 5th march queue slot unlocked (Feudal Age)
As you upgrade your City Hall, you get additional rewards as well, including gems, speedups, and resources.
You can see the exact rewards you get at each City Hall level in our full City Hall guide.
How to increase troop capacity
You can increase your troop capacity in Rise of Kingdoms by upgrading your City Hall, leveling up your commanders, and by using troop capacity-boosting commander talents and skills.
Each time you upgrade your City Hall to a new level, your troop capacity will be increased.
This is yet another reason why you want to focus your efforts on upgrading your City Hall.
Every star the commander levels up to increases the troop capacity.
For example, at commander level 2, the commander will have 700 troops.
The maximum number of stars a commander can obtain is 6 which gives them a level cap of 60 and a troop capacity of 50,000.
Every commander has unique strengths and areas they excel.
Commanders such as Cesar and Scipio have special talents that increase your troop capacity.
Your commander must reach a certain star level before they can increase troop capacity.
What star level they must reach depends on what commander it is.
The skills of some commanders increase your troop capacity further.
An example is Osman, who has the skill, Sultan’s Glory, which increases troop capacity by 10%.
When you can bring a second commander to a march, you can increase the total troop capacity even further by choosing commanders that have troop-capacity building skills as the first and second commanders.
That’s how to increase your march queue slots and troop capacity in Rise of Kingdoms!
