I have been playing this game for too long and find myself always grabbing for my iPad or my it ouch. Level 101 on my iPad and just recently (well like 2months) started a new game on my itouch, loving the new game but completely halted on attacking or raiding, increasing my allies refusing all invites and doing no missions so as not to gain any experience and level up. I have chosen to stay this way until all of my current buildings are maxed out to level 10,by level 20 I hope to be unstoppable. Try it out and I will challenge you on the battlefield come level 20, I'm sure it's months away.
i was wondering if you could send me that excell spread sheet? im level 63 and seem to have 0 money all the time and my defense is at like 3000! so any advise would be greatfull!!!

hi fellow combats! im just new to this game. would you mind helping me on adding new allies to my troop. my id is 690 430 848. thanks!
First of all I think your main problem is your allies. Everyone seems to be crazy about increasing their alliance size, but the more units you attack with the more your opponet gets to defend with. So if you have 100 allies you attacking with 400 units but your opponents have just as many. Your attack strength might be higher but you will probable loss 2 or 3 units per attack. On the other hand if you attack with no allies it will be 4 vs. 4. You will use your 4 best units which are probable indestructible so you won't loss any units.

That is why people put defensive building around there perimeter because they don't care if there raided.
That being said if your keep your allies around 5 you should be able to find opponents with only 3 allies this should make it 20 vs. 12. You will find you can win most battles that way. Keep in mind that the people you attack don't really only have 3 allies. But the game only allows them to use 3 to keep it fair.
Be prepared to be attacked a lot though because anyone you attack can retaliate through the "news" tab. And when they do the game will allow them to use their entire army. So send all the money so they can’t steal it back.
Currently I'm leave 40 I’ve only been playing for a little less than 2 weeks. With only 5 allies my attack strength is around 500. And I’ve probable stolen around 30 million.
If you have any other questions please ask?
You are incorrect...The person you attack will always bring the number of units THEIR alliance level allows. It is NOT a matched number of units. Why do players build big alliances? Well, simply put more allies means you bring more to the fight.

1) You max out at 500 allies or 2000 units for any given attack/defend. So do not exceed what you can support. (i.e. 500 allies but only 1100 units. You'll lose them fast vs. others with 500 allies and 2000+ units.)
2) The game automatically selects the units you bring to the fight in descending order. You might have nice att/def numbers, but that doesn't mean a thing if your numbers are "boosted" with low level troops (light gunners etc) that never make it to battle.
3) Having a minimum # of allies so only indestructable units are in play? A good tactic to keep from bleeding units, but it doesn't change whether you win or lose a fight.
4) As jjey put it in the #3 post of this thread: You never know where your opponent has allocated their skill points. Just because your numbers have someone beat by 20% doesn't not mean you're guaranteed a win. If they've spent most of their skill points on defense? You will lose about 30-40% (or more) of the time.
My tip? Always scout before attacking. And I don't mean just their Att/Def numbers...Know what your opponents W/L, inventory, and READ their comments*. You can learn a lot from this. And if you decide to attack (win or lose), always check the battle results. If you lost units, decide whether it's worth it before proceeding. Too many players think, "Oh yeah! I won. I'll attack again, and again...", but in the end they beat themselves by losing most of their "good" units.
I've played 3 accounts (Lvl: 200, 156, and 51) since Nov 2011, so I kinda know what I'm talking about. My current level 51 has a W/L of 782/26. <--- (95% of the "wins" from being attacked, because I've put just about every skill point into defense). Few have attacked me more than once, even those with double my stats don't hit me more than once...My guess is they lose more units than it's worth. On my end, I've lost maybe 12 units from the 26 losses. It also applies to being raided, as I've seen more failed raids on my base than anything else. I plan to get defense up into 200+ range before level 90, only adding to energy to do missions.
For those wondering...No, I've never spent a dime for fake gold. ;)
*Why read comments before attacking? Simple you don't want to attack the 'wrong' guy. For those who don't understand what this means? You will once you enter the "whale pool" (Team Pirate, Sisters of Mercy, etc). At level 92 (or something about there) you're fair game for EVERYONE above you. Those high level gold buying players LOVE going after people with really nice W/L, and raid records. So remember that when deciding what style of player you want to be.
First of all I would like to apologize. I was wrong about the game matching alliance numbers, I originally though because the game let you attack higher level opponents it also changed their alliance size to allow you to attack.

No need to apologize...just wanted to correct the info.

But I didn't notice until 94 (I'm not a PvP player) when I started getting hammered regularly by people 30-50 levels above me. I even had a level 200 (max for the game) raid every building and attack, simply because he could. Basically, once you've entered the pool you're at the bottom of the food chain and can attack/be attacked by everyone above you.
Your alliance doesn't change. You won't/can't attack an ally no matter what. But your rivals list will be very limited. It'll still be full of players, just none that you can or want to attack. You'll notice TONS of players sitting at around level 92-94 and going nowhere because they quit, leaving everything raided and their player usually too weak to be attacked.
Again, I can't stress enough how people need to choose wisely how they want to play the game. Attack and raid all you want, but enjoy your "loot" while you can because your stats as a "winner" will put you at the top of the list for every shark out there in the pool. It doesn't matter if you "turtle" your way up and I don't care how strong your economy is, you will lose more unit than you can ever replace. Example: My level 157 just lost enough units in one attack by a $1000+ "golden army" to reduce my att/def score 10K points. As a free player, there is nothing one can do...Except laugh at the idiots who pay to be "awesome" at a game and probably pay for sex too. :)
