PostSubject: what's a war without troops?!!!   Tue Jun 05, 2007 8:58 am

peace and i have been speaking and it has come to our attention numerous times that many players in the alliance have little or nothing of an army though their population is rather large. peace suggested some kind of minimum number of troops, defense at least. i second this motion as there are many players in Shadow that spend their resources (namely some small players in my vicinity) not on development but on troops to protect themselves and the alliance. it reveals a lack of regard for your sisters and brothers in arms if you are building your level 20 academy for a chieftan when you have nothing of defense to send or use for yourself when the bad guys come. that puts all the strain on others to protect you when a certain level of protection should be done by yourself and friends in your local area.

don't farm everyone by the way. work out an agreement with someone so you have reinforcements that can come in 20 minutes from a personal ally. if you have 3 villages and no troops what the hell do you plan on doing offensively for the alliance, and let's not even talk about defense! the reason why lunchbox fell so hard was because he had overexpanded to 5 villages and developed a false sense of control. he didnt invest in strong defenses because everyone was scared of his population. more experienced players know that the pop doesnt amount to shite if it can be destroyed faster than it can be built.

i cannot emphasize this enough, and poly did it before, so did saxman, shit so did all the leaders WE ARE AT WAR, BUILD AN ARMY! if you don't have one make a defensive one first and then work on an attacking one!

Well said, elch!

A good guideline is to have at least your population in defensive troops that are 50-50 balanced against infantry and cavalry. If you're all defense, double that. If you're going to do 50% defense and 50% offense, then aim for your population or higher in crop/hr of offense troops also. I don't suggest that anyone go purely offensive... that's suicide in war time.

most of my army is defensive, but as of now, my offensive force is coming up slowly.

Well, things will turn different once you are attacked. LOL.

When I was attacked or lost army in my attacks, I will build more, much more.

Im kind of stupid for building my 5th village but my 3rd and 4th are too far out for anyone to attack.

I do have a decent army (well i did). My army is about 2k crops worth atm.

mines is only 1k value (well part of it that i can count). i have a bunch of auxiliaries from my friend who sends them to me for protection. so i'm working on my other two villages, but i seriuosly need a 15 cropper to support his needs and for a newb its surprising how he manged to build an army of 1k that my village is supporting along with my own. o.o
