Deconstruction is the god power of the Atlantean major god Kronos, available in the Archaic Age. It undoes the construction of an enemy building, therefore removing or destroying it. However, the Resources used for the target structures construction are returned to the target's owner.
Deconstruction can be used on any building, with the exception of Town Centers, Wonders and Titan Gates. It's a useful tool for eradicating some powerful key structures, like Strongholds, Temples or production buildings (Barracks or Stables for example) from the enemy town. Deconstructing structures that are vital for aging up (such as the temple) could give the player time to overcome their opponent and make a rush. If Deconstruction is used on a Dock, players should make sure the Dock is not already poorly placed. If it is cast on a Dock that is far from fish shoals close to the shore, it may only allow the enemy to rebuild it on a more favourable location.
Deconstruction can be used twice during a game, but has a cooldown of four minutes.
- Whenever Deconstruction is used against the player, they will be notified the same way as if the building was attacked.
