  • Cheat/Loophole That allow unlmited Troops

    I am curious what percentage of two city players are aware of, and Using the loophole?

    For those not aware there is currently a bug in KoC BFTN that allows you to have unlimited troops, if you have two cities.

    Here's how you do it. While you are lead to believe Troops must be feed of they will die or desert... it is not true (at least at this time). Troops will consume food if you have it, but will not die or desert if you don't have any. With this in mind, you only farm in one city. You only need enough food for building upgrades and troop training, not feeding your troops. You house most if not ALL your troops in the city that has no farms(and therefore no food). You will quickly see that your troops do not die or desert. Moving forward you build troops as fast as you can, and then reassign them to the city with no farms. You can even transfer food to the city that has no farms so that you can build troops in that city. Just transfer the food when you are ready to train the troops or the food will be used. YOu can literally build army in the 100's of thousands of troops by doing this and not having to feed them. You also find that in the city with no farms, you have massive surpluses of the other resources so you always have what it take to build more troops. Now all you have to decide on is the right mix of Barracks to Cottages for optimum troop training.

    If you think I am BSing you are falling behind. If you scout several really high might players 5 mil plus, you'll find that 50% of the cities you scout have massive amounts of troops and zero food, this is because they are using the above described loophole.

    So that you understand my motive, I think this loophole ruins the game, and will be the games downfall if it is not fixed. There is almost no strategy if you have all the resources you need(which the method I describe above will quickly provide) and are just racing to building more troops faster. Even the people taking advantage of this loop hole will get bore and stop playing.... Additionally i am ticked off, I invest lots of time into this game to have all the fun sucked out of it by a loop hole. To you high might players using this loophole, where is the fun in being at the top by taking advantage of a loophole only you know about? You are not one of the best if this is how you get to the top....

    I will repost this several time over the course of the next few days as people should be aware...not ignorant

    Cant please everyone can you, I think this infact makes the game much more fun, and the fact that ppl who cannot afford a second city or struggle to win one are able to also send their troops and carry on training. Training high and having big wars is what the game is all about. Its fun. Just enjoy the loophole. Im sure Kabam have probably found the purchase of gems has gone through the roof since this loophole, i highly doubt they will be wanting to rectify that.

      I don't disagree with you thought process, but it should be common knowledge amongst all player, not just those that have been around the longest and are in the know. As it is, with the majority of players being ignorant of this fact, it seems to increase the gap between old and new players, not decrease it. This rule change should be one of the notification and tips that they send out to help play do better...

        I agree that Kabam should update the in game text to make it more obvious. However it is much more common knowledge than you say. Any veteran player knows this and any decent player passes it on. A veteran chancellor, a decent one anyway, should be passing the info on to his members. If he isn't then I would suggest a new alliance. The info is also easily available in the forum. A quick search by the OP would of answered everything. It is also available on Facebook. Once I finish the wiki on wall defenses I will move onto troops and that will include info on troop desertion. So it will be available on the wiki as well soon.

        The in game messages with tips that are now received when you start a new world are something new. Veteran players on older worlds didn't get these kinds of messages. We had to learn how to play by trial and error. Many of us passed this info on as we learnt from our experiences. All of that info is available by searching these forums and is slowly being added to the wiki. Unfortunately I seem to be the only person writing the wiki so it is slow going.

          I think everyone with two cities is using this 'loophole'. During peacetime my upkeep gets to around 5 million food per hour and there are plenty of people who have higher. How can I sustain a decent army without this 'loophole'? It's not really a cheat is it if everyone has access to it, it's how Kabam intended the game to be played. There are a number of bugs and problems with the game, however this is not one of them.

          You claim to have invested lots of time into this game and yet only now you are learning of this 'loophole'? You must not have a very good alliance as this is shared around to everyone and I have not met a single person who has not at least heard of it, even if they have to ask the specifics.

              Dude, this isn't a loophole at all. It's the mechanics of the game. Sure originally there was troop desertion but it was well published that it was removed from the game by design. Was a welcome change, because then all the best players had nothing but farms, and didn't make any resources other than food. Was very lame, and other resources were very hard to come by. This was we all get big armies. Just adjust your strategy accordingly, this is after all a strategy game, and no matter what the rules of the game are, you need to be able to adapt to the boundaries of the game and come up with the way to be the best you can be. This is something available to everyone. Before more people had two cities, good alliances, had parking lots, and you reinforced your armies to it. So this was around before two cities.
