    Here is the Alliance Diplomat's response:
    He totally destroyed me and pillaged lots of goodies. He attacked me four times. I am rebuilding my soldiers and will see what I can do, but he's much higher than me.

    That's what your alliance mates are for ;)

    Thanks. :)
    I'm thinking of replying back to him: "I guess so. See you soon." The thing is that his alliance is pretty strong, so I'm not sure what we can accomplish.

    Hmm...can we send troops to his aid to help defend him? Or should we perhaps turn the attack around back on him?

    Two things. One - Have Six contact their diplomat, and ask for reparations. Sir J will need to have what all was taken and / or destroyed. Two - get a spy in there and tell us what all he has by way of troops and supplies.

    Okay, I see item one was covered. We need to know what he has in there by way of troops.

    I am training another spy, but last two spies I trained bugged out right away.

    Jeesh, I'm too far away to be much help here. My spy wouldn't get there until tomorrow.

    Alright, well, he has a level 3 town on your wine island at 28:6, that's easy enough to demolish.

    Sir J, you need to spend all your gold on transports. Do it right away. Don't let him have any of it.

    Everyone needs to have some semblance of a military. He was only a level 10, he really shouldn't have been able to breach a properly defended level 7 without it being a huge expense.

    I need to know what's in his city. I'll send in a nasty force and smoke his ass, but I need to know what all is in there first to plan it right.

    Yeah, I'm upgrading my baracks on that island and will attack later. My spy will be ready in 5 minutes so I'll hope it works and we'll see what happens.

    Also... talk to all the big boys on your island. Tell them you were attacked unprovoked by him. See if you can convince them to give you an assist, and force his ass out of the area.

    Well there are only two big guns, so I just let them know.

    Hmmm, their alliance has almost 59,000,000 points compared to our 6.4 million.

    We should probably reiterate what makes for a good defense. In the meantime monitor the number of times that he pillages you. If he does it more than six times in a rolling 24-hour period, report him to a Game Operator and he'll be banned.

    If he continues to pillage you before you can build up your defenses, destroy your port to limit the amount he can take.

    As for basic defense, and I apologize if I'm stating the obvious:
    • Town wall the same level as town hall
    • Don't bother with ram ships -- ballista ships for defense until you can make the big boys
    • Don't bother with slingers -- phalanxes for defense
    • One rule of thumb that I saw was to have two phalanxes and one ballista for each level of your town hall. This was one player's opinion, but he mentioned that he had never been attacked.
    • Even when you can make higher-level units and ships, your defensive "fodder," the things you throw at the enemy in large numbers to die, are the ballistas and phalanxes. When you can make them mix in the higher levels such as archers and catapult ships.
    • When you can build a workshop take advantage of it to make your defense even stronger.

    Am I missing anything?

    Yeah, thanks. There is some new info there, but overall, I was fairly well defender, except for my town wall 6 on on a town 7, I don't have the marble to upgrade yet. In the first action, I had 13 slingers, 12 swordsmen, 12 phalanxes and 2 rams. He attacked me two other times, which I won, and his fourth and final one was where he beat me.

    -edit- I sent out a spy and right away he doesn't answer.

    300 marble on the way to you. Unfortunately, it'll take 22 hours.

    I think Twingo is the closest to you.

    Good job on the successful defenses!

    It doesn't hurt to have a few offensive units in the mix when you're defending, but the nice thing about defensive specialists is that they take a licking and keep on ticking. This keeps him in the field longer, which costs him more money.

    Sir Joe, to which island should I send marble?
     
  19. Sir Joseph

    Sir Joseph Registered User

    Brobyos please. That's my capitol and the one he attacked. I want to give you back, so I have lots of wine, sulfur and crystal glass. Please let me know what I can give you.
    Thanks!

    Marble on the way (in one day, four hours and change :cry:). Don't worry about trading right now.
