Starting strategies
11:57:16 May 7th 08 - Mr. Graurk:

Whats everyones starting strategies for the begining of era?

At the moment im trying afew and im getting on well with one inparticular..

First city = mining and nothing else, send out a scout soon to make armory city, build troops steadyly, buy food in from market. Its working surpisingly well and im not doing too bad for armies. When it starts getting too costly to buy in food ill take someones farming city or another mining one for the added income for the market food. (only problem is market running out of food damnit! its happened afew times so far)

I mgiht try out making a food city after the armory next era, it might help save some cash for more troops and prevent starvation if the market crashes.

Any other ideas? What do you usually do?

Nobody is dumb enough to give away their strating stratagy.

15:03:35 May 7th 08 - Mr. Graurk:

I can understand that but surely yall can share the default strats, the basics and whatnot before you adapt them to your own play style.


15:06:17 May 7th 08 - Sir Sausage Roll:

No, people start differently

Normally I build 1000 taverns then 200 mines for every 200 homes  { 1:1 }



18:29:40 May 7th 08 - Mr. Graurk:

Lmao was going to say.. taverns, 1:1?

Surely the fact that im trying afew different strats would suggest that i am learning myself.. no? im only asking for tips and to share some knowledge.

Join a kingdom, should teach you enough

We all started the same lad :)

Go orc, settle a city, then spend all your starting money on nazzies ; )

Eh-emmm... I'm stupid enough to tell me starting strategy...

Build a city, mess up. There you go, not the most effective, but I stick to it loyally...

21:10:42 May 7th 08 - Sir Iwasfrozen IX:

lol, as much as I hate to admit it sausage roll is right we where all *beep*s once, join a kd and enjoy the game :)

People like to think prot strategies are some uber secret strats, THEY AREN'T!

10 move lifegurad near mountain
20 build first city
30 build only mines and homes
40 build armory town
50 when there are about 15-20 ticks from OOP train troops and add new ones every tick after
60 OOP kick ass.

There is nothing secret or mystical about protection strats and anybody that thinks there is, IS DOING IT WRONG.

This strat works for all races, but if you're halfer you can also choose to go for farm town first and hope on good market price. It's doable but I don't like it personally.

Settle colony next to a mountain

Unless you no the magic spots go for a 6400 to a 14400 to play it safe.(half a tick away)

It is extremely important to get full mining bonus within first 10 ticks so dont be worried about settleing too close settle too far away and i will be *beep*ing pissed off at you for not listening and rushing ;)

Transfer pes from lifegaurds to city.

Send out four scouts in all directions and a scout for your second city.

Put your wood on the market for extra cash straight away, sell to natives.

Upgrade mining Science to level 3.
