Sidhe warrior? -Solo

Postby Cindy » Wed Jul 02, 2008 11:49 am

This game is based on gaining land to win, and for some reason my granddaughter's kingdom seems to have trouble. I know I am not a warrior, but I do understand the basic principle and can use it, or though, I thought.

Raycorz and her have been at war since June 6. A full month. Raycorz declared on her. The war went rather typical, he took her land, then she sorced him, then he burnt her and sorced her with his elemental and she builds them back.

Raycorz is elemental
Melody is sidhe

Well, Raycorz has not been around for a few days, he didn't go on vacation so she has been attacking and tried taking his land.
She succeeded at first. But eventually seemed to lose more troops than he did. She could not continue to take land without reforting and well with kingdoms under 100K NW gold is a commodity we don't have much of. She dropped some land, built a few forts and temples , and forted defense and scum.

The next day she tried again. Her sidhe had 1200 T-3's (defensive troops). She got in with ease on control strike for 1 acre, after 3-4 CS1, she tried a full. She got in but just barely, she lost 10 times the troops he did and after the 3rd hit, he resisted and her army was pretty much depleted.

Tried again, her 1200 sidhe T-3's, his elemental had very little, only 77 elite T-4's (offensive) and 31 T-2's(offensive).
She failed. We just gave up attacking, tithed and built.

Another issue with her kingdom is the sorc troops. She has 42 sorc nymphs. They have been there through all the attacking, the sorc screen shows an asterisk on the awaken spirits spell and the training screen states there are 42 Fire Nymphs. It has been my experience when you attack or are attacked, , your sorc troops are gone, not these, they are eternal sorc troops.

If anyone can help us here it would be greatly appreciated. She is starting to get a bit frustrated, so am I.

Is there a defensive advantage given to the underdog? The more land the attacker has, the stronger the defenders troops become? When we had less land than him, it seemed easier to get though. Now we have the advantage and it is proving almost impossible.

Yeah, it is her first kingdom. She gets up every morning and the first thing she does is to look and see what Raycorz did to her kingdom. She is truly enjoying the game. Just wish I could help her with the warrior part.

The kingdom she is hitting has no forts?

Because if it had forts that would explain a lot of this.

Shofet, this is the scout...he hasn't played a turn sinse Friday. 1200 Sidhe T-3's failed. He lost 1 elemental T-4 is all; she lost 150 sidhe T-3's on a FA, he did not reset the ambush, no turns had been played since the last scout.

I dont know i had a problem breaking a kingdom in a game outside of unity as well, it seemed like the defense was way stronger than what the numbers indicated.

My first suggestion is when hitting dont use the most defensive troop. But the numbers do not add up.

cindy i had that same problem in unity
i had 800 t4 and was hitting an ug that had roughly
34t1
50 forts
12 t2

and i never got more than good fight on fs.


i dont know if its a bug or if they just are screwed up defense or what

but guilded kingdoms sidhes dont seem to be as hard to break
its weird


also they summon temples not sorc. so im not sure why u keep your sorc troops
id suggest maybe posting in the bug thread and askin demmy or kaz if its suppose to be that way
id be interested in the answer also

The numbers don't add up is an under statement..

her Sidhe offensive:
1200 T-3's* (Selkies Offense is) 21.43 * 4.2 (for elite training) = 108,007.2

his elemental defense:
77 T-4's * (Demons defense is) 30.35 * 6.2 (for training) =14,489.09
+
31 T-2's (Djinns defense is) 16.00*6.2 (for training)= 3,075.2
= 17,564.29 (total defense)

108,007.2 vs 17,564.29 and still failing is a definite understatement.

615% advantage fails a FA attack is kind a weird.

I know Steven,
but when I look at the scouts and there are no turns played... I saved the scouts...
I know Sidhe are supposed to summon temples... then why does it say I also have 42 fire nymphs on the training page, you don't train temples and the temples are not called fire nymphs.

copy from the hire page...
You also have 42 Fire Nymphs.

I had a problem similar to this and could not figure it out. Early this age age i found a country that had approx. 3800 scum, no forts and no defense(sidhe) 0 troops, i'm a sidhe also, loaded up on around 400 banshee and was resisted till i boosted up to close to 900 banshee.
I was shocked to see being resisted with the person having 0 troops.
Still haven't seen anyone else commenting on this subject till now.

Hope to see some sort of response on this.

my guess would be since your raised troops aren't disappearing, perhaps the same thing is happening to him, just that he has a lot more raisd to give him a half decent defense. Then s you attack his defense remains vertually unchanged, while your offense looses each time for "good fight"

I was going to say the same thing Exile said but add another thing. If you are resisted on FA and get in with ease with CS, try just CSing for large acreage. See if that works better.

My scout showed no summon troops and yes i busted the ambush. I also hit it 4 or 5 times in a row for fun and then stocked up on more troops each time i hit(25%) each time.

sidhes are not a warrior race by far, their troops will run away when getting in with with ease with complaints the bloodshed is damaging to their aura ;)

When playing sidhe (which I admit is rarely) Their scum have such good defense and honestly their T4 have well enough defense for me as well... I pretty much use only the t4 troop until I'm HUGE. And then I maybe change it up a bit. May explain why I've not experienced this. I can tell you I've NEVER hit with the sidhe t2 or t3 even when it appreared a good idea because of fear the sissies would just run away run away!
