It seems that RUM might not have figured out the mechanics behind attacking my towns, so I have decided to write a helpful guide to aid them with their war. Its no fun fighting a war when the other side can't fight back.

Step one- Build some troops.

Now, I know some of you have managed to build troops... but many of you are not great at keeping your queues going. To build troops, go to this link:
http://elgea.illyriad.co.uk/#/Town/UnitProduction/8

Once you're done, you should have something like this, it should sort out your troop queues for a little while:


Once those have finished building, you'll have yourself an army of sorts.

Step two- Make an army 

You'll want to do this based on the purpose and terrain of your troops. Putting a bunch of infantry and hardly any bows on a mountain, for example is a bad idea.


^ RUM army scouted on a small mountain square, a bad idea

Step three- Send an attack

Now, some of you have already almost figured this out but need a bit more practice.
What you do is put a bunch of troops into an army and send it at one of my towns. You want to avoid accidentally using the feint option. While this is a tempting thing to choose- you have just spent ages building all those lovely troops- it also means your attack does nothing.




^ Example of nothing happening as a result of a feint.

In an ideal world, when your attack lands, it should look something like this:


Here are a few helpful links for sending attacks at my towns so you don't get lost and accidentally send to another one town account:

http://elgea.illyriad.co.uk/#/Military/Orders/-622/-2832
http://elgea.illyriad.co.uk/#/Military/Orders/-703/-2777
http://elgea.illyriad.co.uk/#/Military/Orders/-608/-2835
http://elgea.illyriad.co.uk/#/Military/Orders/-595/-2835
http://elgea.illyriad.co.uk/#/Military/Orders/-603/-2835
http://elgea.illyriad.co.uk/#/Military/Orders/-614/-2835

Best of luck out there! If you need any more help in sending attacks, just send me an IGM.

Those comms have no xp so heroism wasn't really a thing for them... and dendro often forgets to dodge... 



That's what gets sent when the comms have heroism

You haven't done anything to warrant the attention you demand.
I am not amused.

I've killed more RUM/Iron troops in the past week than any other VAST player.

And since when did people have to do something to get your attention? Iron have attacked 1 town players in this conflict.

Yeah, you attacked Jenny the Unready who wasn't even in VAST, they were just the alt of someone in VAST.

So, to me, it seems like you only really want to go for the targets who can't fight back... rather than go for an eight town player who's up for a fight, you wimp out and attack the small players.

If you aren't wimping out, prove me wrong. Attack me.

The herald says 3 of the top defenses this week were by REEEE.
I am not amused.
