  • Battle Mechanics do not make sense

    I've been playing this game on my iPad for a few months and although I generally enjoy the game, the battle mechanics drive me insane. I'm hoping someone can shed some light on this before I give up and quit playing.

    I am trying to save up gold for higher level research but get attacked on a daily basis. There seems to be no way to defend. For instance, a typical battle happened last night.

    I have level 2 defenses:
    ~1,000 Defensive Trebuchet
    ~1,000 Boiling Oil
    ~1,000 Spiked Barriers

    I'm using a Level 72 Marshall for defense. I have a Level 8 castle wall.

    I get attacked by someone who simply uses level 1 Militiamen. Attacking force was 15,000 Militiamen and 1500 supply wagons.

    Now obviously I'm out-numbered, but the Defender should get the advantage. I'm sitting behind a Level 8 castle wall, and I have a seasoned veteran defending my city.

    Militiamen are basically the lowest rung on the ladder. They're not even trained soldiers. They're just townsfolk with pitchforks.

    The result of the battle is I lose all my defenders, all 3,000. The attacker suffers minimal losses, only about 3,500 militiamen.

    This makes absolutely no sense to me. A small garrison of higher trained troops should easily be able to defend this.

    In order for wall defenses to get a boost via setting a knight to marshal you must also set your troop flag to unhide.

    Assuming you had no additional troops defending and not taking into account the knight or any bonuses you had an actual strength of 6000 whereas the attacker had an actual strength of 15000.

    Now assuming you had your flag set to unhide, your knight was set properly & you have lv5 poisoned edge and healing potion your actual strength would have been upwards of ~11k which is still short of the 15k the attacker would have had even if he had no knight and no poisioned edge or healing potion.

      There should not be any reason why a new player would have their troops set to unhide. As a new player you need to make sure your troops are hid, your resource level are all under your protection level, you do not create any wall defense as people will attack your wall just to get the troop kills for the wall defenses. As long as you keep the above items and make sure to abide by this, no matter if your attacked, the attackers will not get anything, and join an alliance as this is where you learn and grow and get help.

      Being attacked is an everyday items for all players, the only time you will stop this from happening is when your in the millions of might (it slows down attacks) and when people know your not worth their time as you keep your resources below the protection level and they will not get anything from you.

        I second Redheartwolf. In an alliance their is usually one or two cities that seldom get attacked. The gold can be hidden there and you ask for some when it's time for more research.
