Can i use my tribute if i deny to give to king

  • The king/duke will know that you are denying the tributes and get ready to be kicked out and farmed by your neighbors.

    If the village is in enemy territory, the king/duke may not let others to attack you if you keep giving tributes and make them happy. If you deny it, again expect attacks.

    If you are inside the borders, its also suggested to let your leaders collect the tributes for overall kingdom growth (in VPs, Treasury defense). Anyway its only a percentage.

    But in case your king/duke is not active and the tribute fund is overflowing, you may attack yourself from other village to collect and use it. It keeps refilling once you collected from an overflowing treasury
