My starting strategy
06:35:28 Nov 3rd 09 - Mr. Urist:

What do you think of my start?

Day one: Build first city and drop 500 peasants in, this will be my farm. Split my lifeguards into two armies of 25 swordies and 250 peasants. Send said armies in opposite directions 2 ticks away. Upgrade Mining to level 3.

Day two: Continue first cities expansion and wait for armies to arrive.

Day three: Build two more cities (mine and armory). Send one army about 3 ticks away to build another city(second mine).

Day four: ????

Thats it so far. I have 1xFarm and 2xMine cities (or atl east im building them to be that). My only worry is that 2 ticks apart isnt enough for later game expansion.

Okay so im abit rusty, i havnt played VU for afew years.

1) what race are you?

2) you should never start with a farm city unless you are a halfer...

3) Make 2 mining cities and dont build an armory yet should start building your armory with about 30 ticks left OOP.


06:48:50 Nov 3rd 09 - Sir Penguin The Filipino:

your strategy sucks, not that i would have a better one :/

06:50:43 Nov 3rd 09 - Lord Stewie Griffin:

lol thanx for the help penguin =P

06:52:21 Nov 3rd 09 - Mr. Urist:

I didnt think it was that bad, really.

06:58:03 Nov 3rd 09 - Lord Stewie Griffin:

lol ....when you make ur first city..u start with 35 farms...which gives you around 3.7k food production /tick...

you have really messed up lol... as a dwarf.. you need to make 2 big mines first (around 25.6k cities) and get your income to around 300k easily by the time you are out of protection (OOP)

you should also start building your armory when you have like 30 ticks remaining till OOP

And for the past 3-4 eras....DWARF IS THE WORST RACE IN THE GAME!....ELVES and TROLLS are the strongest and best race to play u mite as well make a new account and start over again :)

message me in game if u need any more help :)

06:58:30 Nov 3rd 09 - Mr. Urist:

Oh my god, the edit feature on this forum sucks.

Im dwarf and i guess ive messed up then.

The reason i made a farm first is because i was close enough to a river and i didnt want to waste my bonus turns moving to a mountain.

I didnt think it was that bad. The idea was to expand fast without having to rainbow my first city.

Edit.. Im only about 5 ticks in, will it really matter that much?

07:03:35 Nov 3rd 09 - Lord Stewie Griffin:

well are u in a kd or playing solo? if ur playing solo and are planning to do OOP war with the kds around you then it will u will get owned lol...5 ticks in, you shoulda already had like a 30k+ income

but if no1 is around u...then it prolly doesnt matter that much

07:11:02 Nov 3rd 09 - Mr. Urist:

I dont think anyone is around me, although there is a scout heading my way.

I'll stick it out for this era. I'll see what works and what doesnt then really up my game next time around. Im probably going to go it solo so far but im not going to actively attack anyone just yet. I pretty passive to war.

07:14:33 Nov 3rd 09 - Lord Stewie Griffin:

well then just keep building in your mines, and make your farm city basically an armory...

enjoy the era :)

feel free to pm me if you got any questions..i'll be more than happy to help

07:55:58 Nov 3rd 09 - Mr. Revenge The Sexc:


Your whole OOP is ruined.

13:48:14 Nov 3rd 09 - Duchess Mama Bear:

don't PM stewie, he sucks ass.

14:03:57 Nov 3rd 09 - Mr. Stoned Polar Bear:

yeah pm me instead! oh wait, that's right, i suck too ;p

21:11:45 Nov 3rd 09 - Mr. Urist:

Regardless of how much Stewie may or may not suck, he has welcomed me and offered help were no one else has.

21:46:47 Nov 3rd 09 - Sir Lanoc:

Don't restart, there's no point, you'll have a bigger disadvantage. It's not as if your start was that bad. You lose peasants every turn in they are in armies though, so if you're sending them off somewhere, don't spend too long at it, those first few peasants are helpful for keeping your production up. Besides, they'll make your army take longer to go elsewhere. Increase your mining a bit, I'm not sure what the figures are for dwarf now but I'm sure it's fairly cheap. Also, military has been decreased for dwarf. And the amount of trees needed per building has increased, so that's bound to help dwarfs somehow. You'd best train quite a few troops at any rate, more troops out of protection than there used to be. Other than that I don't know, I'm a pretty crap player.

12:39:58 Nov 8th 09 - Mr. Papas Bear:

The nub restarted and I was going to help him lol

13:49:17 Nov 9th 09 - Mr. Teirdel:

No worries lanoc you were more than helpful to him im sure. Also Mr. Urist be sure to check the guides out in the forums. Other than that all i can really recomend is after you have a decent population set your house to building ratio to 1:5.

1 house=25 peasants
1 mine/mill/farm etc= -5 peasants
