I have been playing this game for a while now, at the moment i have reached 6.7m might. However i have recently switched to the classical one/two troop type per city .

However, i have seen a LARGE increase in training time on my SWORDMEN(from 2hrs to 3hrs for 1k units) - after i destroyed my STABLE. How come that the stable affects the swordmen training time?

ATM im thinking about this tactic:
city 1: workshop and blacksmith - to train balistaes
city 2: stable and blacksmith - cavallery
city 3: stable and blacksmith? - swordmen

Also... Is there any real use for T1? Seems just like a waste of resources.
