Dear users,

  • Considering the wording this is how it should have always worked. While we're at it they may as well be thorough and apply the multiplier to daily tasks, friends research bonus and the likes.

  • My time really is too expensive to take the time to discuss with WhiskeyJack, or N R S S as he goes by in-game, so consider this my first and last reply. Let's start off with the backstory to this "revelation". Valentia, a member of the alliance "Reavers", has this piracy cycle taken down the server and placed first in piracy. Good for him, and good effort. Now, Danish Vikings, of which I lead, has 100 million TS, more than the second and third place alliance combined, and we are known to defend…

    New players spawn on any island with 2 or more cities.

  • They'll just send a bunch of waves of 60 gyro's and 1 spearman. I am assuming this war is scored on damage dealt and resources plundered? If above is the case then any army is a waste. so is (almost) any fleet. Place 1 ram ship, 6+ balloon ships and 30+ speed boats in all cities. They'll need to clear those out before plundering and loose a tiny bit of gs. But the best defense is to have nothing to steal. No way around it.

    And to clarify, Yes you can deploy them into a battle. Just use the pack, go to island view, click on your own town, and click "participate in battle". Then just choose what units to participate with.

    - "Do you prefer to type up your thoughts or write them down by hand?" I take it you mean paper/pixel based. My handwriting is beyond awful and unreadable, most of the time for me included. So yeah, I prefer typing down my thoughts, I've used a computer for so long I type in a speed I couldn't match if I were to write on paper with both hands at the same time. I also tend to listen to music at all times I'm writing longer segments, so I need the computer anyways. I like black pens. Black on whit…

    So I'm not much for introducing myself, I tend to get lost in the deep space known as concentration and end up writing a novel. Which is why: "introduction", is in quotation marks. I'm sort of hoping you guys will direct my writing in order to prevent walls of text. Thought it was about time I made one of these, just in case.

  • Well in war you win by having the lesser losses, and greater damage dealt. As such gold cost is completely irrelevant. If you're looking for an option to plunder barbarians in the beginning of the game, there's no point in calculating who would win. Of course I could calculate the victor, though I'd prefer not to. That's another hour of work to conclude that SG's that doesn't need waving quite simply are going to be better. They would have the advantage of no waves, like hops, and greater power,…

    I see now I never came back to accuracy.. Huh. I'm not going to do so now, but hopefully what I'm copying in down below will give you an understanding of my developed understanding of accuracy. It is as always only a theory, but I'd like to believe I am getting closer. For the thread I wrote this response to, go to: Doctors are weird! Need engineer! :D Anyways, it's a heavy read. Get a drink before starting. You know I wasn't planning on doing any math today, but on top of that mad compliment I'…

  • You know I wasn't planning on doing any math today, but on top of that mad compliment I'm suddenly feeling inspired. Anyhow, I guess I could calculate the outcome of a standard SG battle with and without doctors, now engineers. I'll assume both sides are using SG's. One without engineers and one with. This is based on the fact that if one person is waving SG's, the other person almost always mirrors you no matter his skill level. Anyhow. There's a whole lot of units who would be affected by engi…

    I have the same on both English and Danish servers. I'm like 99% certain this is because I'm in Australia. So if you're based far away from the servers that might be the reason. Not that I'm a networking expert, quite the opposite.

    Hah, for 7 building slots of level 32 embassies? I have one level 25 embassy, at this point an upgrade would cost 110.000 resources (45k wood & 65k marble). This was the bonus for today. This is for 18 members. It would take 110000/(816+4*204) = 67 days to make up for that. If I were to upgrade it to 32 it would probably be a couple of years before I'd be making profit

    Ah that's nothing. Charon has 22 alliances left, including "GO's". 1 of those have more than 20 members, 3 with more than 15. The total TS of all alliances is less than double the TS of the "largest" alliance. There are 99 accounts with more than 1 mil TS. The server is 3 years old. If anything it's just the optimal place to farm inactives and build accounts in the hope of a future merger.

  • There's an answer to any question, don't just go with maybe, perhaps and "do this". You're saying it would take you 75 ships to fill out the frontline. This is false. I am assuming you are looking at the 8+ sea battleplan in the ingame help tab. The numbers here are incorrect and based on a single unit. The amount varies based on every ship. As far as I remember the number is 7 ships per slot, 5 slots. This means that the maximum amount of flames you could have in at any one time is 35. Now I do…

  • It is only the home secretary who can see resources and the general who can see military compositions. There is no way to duplicate this effect. You can however allow him to moderate members (kick, promote, demote, etc), view alliance treaties and moderate the board. That's about how far it goes.

    This question was discussed recently, and even I learned something from this thread. Find the thread called: Doctors to troops ratio? Need tips/advice (or just follow the link). The effect doctors have is fairly well discussed in said thread. As for cooks. Each cook raises the morale by a little bit, I don't remember the exact number but I'm sure you can find it if you're eager enough. The tldr is, you'll need cooks, otherwise your army will flee. A 20 something cooks is enough to sustain any ba…

    You can indeed apply math. I am working full time at the moment, and as such the time I wish to doing the same math several times is falling. Feel free to look up several of my posts where I have done math. From memory I can tell you there's one in the thread called "ikariam, the novel". Just skip past the guide, and the math will be beneath. Some of the information is a little outdated, but the core of the math and the general principle still holds true. Any changes you'll also be able to find …

    The workshop works exactly like you think it does. A catapult as you said has 133 base damage. Fully upgraded it will have 136. An increase of ~2%. For a hoplite with a base of 18 however it will do 21 damage. An increase of ~17%. Use your crystal wisely in the beginning. When choosing between units, the lower base dmg (and armor), the greater value of the upgrade.

  • For Unwise: I wasn't aware it stacked off of max population rather than current. Since it doesn't say so ingame however I'll continue to not know. Anyways thanks for enlightening me, that is a very possible scenario. As for the rest of you guys. As Ratna pointed out, this is a help & suggestions thread. The philosophical argument of whether or not this should be (but isn't) against the rules should probably be taken in a discussion thread.
