  • Power of Pikeman – Advanced Attack Strategy

    There are certain troops that do damage in certain areas, and sometimes to certain other troop types.  The good thing about the Pikeman is that they’ll go directly to attacking Cavalry if given the right opportunity.  Check out this War Report! That’s an impressive kill ratio during an attack!  The Pikeman have a combined total attack of 15 million while the total defense of 14,971,860.  The numbers don’t add up there, especially with the other defenses so this is an […]

  • Honor Explained: How to get it, how to get rid of it

    There is a lot mystery surrounding Honor – the War Reports don’t really tell where the honor comes from or what it does for you so I’m going to break that down. Honor is a representation of a player’s troop action, but not necessarily a linear one.  Having a high honor will mean that you heal less troops when in battle vs. another player.  Troop losses can often range from 50% if you have low honor and 10% if you […]

  • Mech Wave Basics

    When mech waves are useful: Mech waves are the perfect wave to send when your opponent has a lot of fodder (workers, warriors, pikes, swords), archers to back up that fodder, and has traps and/or abatis.  Also, mech waves work even when the opponent is online!  For me, there are two great approaches to killing the army above.  One involves some waves designed solely to kill the fodder followed by some scout bombs until it can be wiped out with […]

  • Scout Bomb Basics

    Scout bombs are one of the best methods for killing large numbers of enemy troops while only losing less valuable units of your own. Also, they are a GREAT way to lose honor. If you are wondering why you need to do that, we will have a guide up soon that will go into that in detail. How they work: Scouts are, by far, the fastest unit in the game. Due to this speed, they run past all the enemy’s […]

  • Don’t leave your horses in danger…..

    I think the war report says it all. Defending with horses is not usually a good idea, except as described in our advanced defense tactics. As you can see here, leaving them in harms way can have devastating consequences (especially when the defender can only heal 10% on this report). A subsequent wave wiped the rest of the cavalry as well as most of the rest of the cataphracts. The defender had full wall defenses with 17,702 archer towers as […]
