Fighting has a cost.  The benefits must justify the cost.  In Illy war has a cost.  That makes it interesting.  Offense means overcoming the cost imposed by your enemy.  Defense means creating more cost than the enemy is willing to bear.  This is the strategic aspect of Illy.


It's not strategic at all, you just have to have a larger force and you'll most likely win the battle!
It's just a game. :)

There is more strategy to Illy than tactics, ATH. Strategy determines how many troops show up at a battle and where the battle is fought,  at that point tactics are not that relevant. If you are implying that a smaller player cannot beat a larger one, you are quite wrong.

All this newbie friendly environment also allows a smaller player to insult larger withotu fear of siege. I can speak in the past of when i have done that and with JR shortly after he made my logo and we started disliking each other.
 
Clears throat for long list proving that atilia is wrong:
 
WW1
WW2
War of the Roses
LIBYA
IRAQ/IRAN war

Necro... does AtH even check in here anymore?

Anyhow... an interesting discussion to be sure.

From my own point of view, I love chatting alliance mates and meeting newbies and familiar faces on GC... but at the end of the day I play this game for that moment where I can train some huge armies and send them into an almighty big brawl of some kind, whether it be a tournament, a seige, a friendly tete-a-tete or whatever.

Are we still in a sandbox?  Not only does Illy provide seemingly infinite choices in how to play, the game is largely dependent on the players.  Illy allows for each player to search for other players who are like minded and would like to play as warriors.  If this is done early in their game, their cities' growth will suffer, but they will be enjoying the game.  They have the ability to keep this warring to themselves, and therefore are in their own corner of the sandbox.  Anyone who talks smack about these players, assuming the players are keeping to themselves, are disregarding those players' right to exist in Illy, peacefully or otherwise.  And leave ATH alone, he's just bringing his toys to the sandbox.  

edit:  Thank you carrot much.
