Subject: A guide to attacking my towns

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/-583/-2833 
http://elgea.illyriad.co.uk/#/Military/Orders/-588/-2835
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

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.

"Attacked". Whoop dee doo. You don't have 1 town players.

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.

Excellent, so you do know how to attack then. So hurry up and attack me.

I dunno, if you can claim players not in your alliance are part of the conflict, it's easy enough to claim players in your alliance are not part of the conflict.

Ah, so you're saying that Iron attacks unaligned one town players often enough that it might just be a coincidence?

OK, so give an alternative explanation for Purple Smurf attacking the one town unaligned alt of a VAST player.

For 2 people with nothing to say you sure are making a lot of posts. Perhaps a nice PC would speed things up?

Sounds to me like you're just dodging the question at hand.

Talking in a PC doesn't give you forum points

Maybe if your allies dodged as much as you do, they'd have enough troops to attack me.

Attacking me doesn't make your point stronger.

And continually dodging the point just confirms that it doesn't need to be stronger.

How did the guide work out for you? I saw you were begging for resources the other day.

tbh, I just found it amusing to make it so your siege trains had a net impact of about 200 pop on my town. Other than that, solid hit, felt like I was actually at war so thanks for that.

I even got some incoming from runelord and, ngl, I screwed up a couple of times and didn't dodge but overall I reckon I came out on top.

However, the lack of follow through is pretty piss poor. It'd be nice to have a constant set of attacks against me. One swallow doesn't make a summer and neither does one siege train make a war. So, I ask that you guys continue to use my guide as I've started to get bored again.

Alternatively, you could park a bunch more kobolds in dendro's town and I could resume my massacring there.

Hmm, idk, I once saw this supposedly military based alliance cower in fear at the idea of attacking an 8 town player in their backyard. That was pretty lame.

If I'm wrong in my assessment of the state Iron is in, prove it and launch on me.

I've yet to see eowan as relevant to the war. I don't think he's done anything.

I mean, siege breaking, town clearing, random diplo hits.... more than most Iron players have done.
