    The objective of WAR is not to die for your alliance, but to make the other person DIE for his.

  • In the first battle you got 60,777 resources. It cost you over 34,000 gold upkeep assuming same-island pillaging. That's only 16,000 gold more than the troops sitting idle and not doing anything. I'm sure you could have cut down your troop numbers and gotten the same resources for less gold. I would still consider it profitable and more fun than mining it yourself.

    Either way it was a good pillage. I for one am doing the same thing every day over here on my side of the world. It seems like the old targets never run out of resources anymore. :P
  • why would you send so many troops when literally most of them are just sitting on the bench (getting paid) in combat anyway

    that's definitely eating away at your bottom line

    Once again, read about MORALE.

    except it would be very hard to lose on morale against 70 phals (which would all die in one round) and the other force could probably be killed in one round too

    this is post wall breach of course

    he said it took 3 rounds if you look at his post
  • Another Hit! :love:

  • Since you can only hold 70 steam giants and 18 mortars on the battlefield your most recent hit has too many units. You could have pulled it off with 1 spearman and 18 mortars.

    If there are no defending troops and your mortars can kill 1 wall section each round you should not need more than that. Of course WesleyS level 36 wall would take more than 18 mortars to crack so YMMV.
