    Posted: 10 Dec 2019 at 04:05
I am researching and getting ready to move my cities so placement is important to me as I don't want to make a mistake. I am not interested in city size so much as in defense. I know lvl7 food plots are necessary for size. But I want to lean toward military defensive cities for spears, cavs, and bows. I read that lvl 5 food plots on mountains are best for defense with proper sov sqs for the unit types built near it. Let's say I have the correct military bldgs for the unit I am building in town and supporting sov for that unit.
To defend properly should I be looking for lvl5 food on large mountains/small mountains? I know cavs are best for plains, bows for forests, etc. But, am I better off for defense on a mountin despite the troop type?
I am a Dwarf and an Elf.

The most important thing is to be surrounded by plains. 

Bows suck in forest. Mountains are best for bows. Infantry gets a minor defensive buff on mountain as well.


Regardless of what terrain you end up on, it's best to not defend with a large portion of your army when you're being attacked. Save your troops for hitting sieges, only leave a few elites in your city and dodge with the main army.
This is the thread that never ends, yes it goes on and on my friend. Some person started it, not knowing what it was, and we'll continue posting on it forever just because...

When in doubt, hit the bright shiny red abandon button.

But it is true; abandoning a lot does prevent you from being sieged.

if you want a big army you could place your city near a large food plot
