A zone represents an area of the real world, generally around 25x25 meters, which you can see in the Turf application.
Players can take over zones by, in the real world, stepping into them with Turf and their GPS turned on.
A zone can be different colours at different times.
- Neutral - The zone has not yet been taken over this round and thus has no owner. Players receive a neutral bonus by taking over neutral zones.
- Somebody else's - The zone is owned by somebody that is not you. You can take over this zone unless blocked.
- Yours - The zone is yours and generating PPH.
- Selected - The zone is currently selected on the map.
After taking over a zone it will enter a cooldown period where it cannot be taken over; it is blocked.
The length of the cooldown period depends on variables such as the taker's rank.
A water zone is placed on a non-shallow body of water at least 15 meters from shore, and outside any busy or dangerous areas.
Taking such a zone is rewarded with an Order of Aquamen medal from May to October.
A winner zone is rewarded to the hard-working turfers who manage to win a round.
