Tick is a game time unit. I think u can call it turn. There are several things that use ticks such as troops moving / recruiting, control ticks and spy infiltration ticks, as well as other things that I fail to remember right now.

With that said, each server has their own tick speed. When u log in Battle Dawn and at the World Selection Screen. You will see something like this:

Server Name | Tick Speed | Current Tick | Number of Players | Last Login | Ur Colony Name

The tick speed is wat you are looking for. It's the number of tick in each hour. So if u see 1 tick / hour, the tick is 60 minutes long; 2 tick / hour is 30 mins each tick.

And about the number of ticks each round, it's up to the admin to decide how long the era should be (although most will go with the default: 2999 ticks). However, the maximum number of ticks should be announced in the new era announcement and will not be changed unless in special occasions.

But, wat I mentioned above is the maximum number of ticks, the round will end as soon as any alliance manage to gather all 10 relics and keep them for 100 ticks. So how long the era is something that can't be estimated. But average is around 1500~2000 ticks. Though there will be some longer eras, and some shorter.
