  • 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 […]

  • Instant Construction of Wall Defenses

    Now that we know that Instant Troops aren’t a myth we can guess that Instant Wall Defenses are available as well.  That being said it is MUCH harder to get them because you aren’t likely to be beating your Politics hero against lvl 10s to level it up (although it isn’t a bad idea).  Take a look at the requirements below, including a column that shows what level you need if you have Wealth of Nations applied.  Check it out: […]

  • 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 […]

  • Instant Troops – NOT a myth!

    Need troops?  Need troops right NOW?  Well here’s how: We’ve all heard murmurs about Instant Troops and I, for the longest time, was certain this was a myth… Boy was I wrong.  Instant troops means the training time is Zero, Zip, Zilch, 0, nothing.  You get the idea. Of course there is only one thing that determines the training time of a troop, it is the attack value of the currently appointed Mayor.   Here’s a chart to show you what […]

  • Top 10 Signs You’re Addicted to Evony

    10. When, despite no knowledge of engineering or carpentry, you manage to build a working trebouchet in your back garden. 9. When the National Heritage Trust writes to you asking you to cease planting flags with your name in local forests. 8. When you drive by a forest and wonder “How many archers?”. 7. When you have the judge tell you that mailing your neighbours telling them to “move out of my territory or else” is anti-social behavior. 6. When […]

  • War Report of the Week

    This weeks War Report shows just how easily cavalry and cataphract can be defeated.  This is an excellent example of a defense, and he got a random city teleporter from it too! Next week we’ll show you how amazingly effective cavalry and cataphract can be!

  • 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 […]
