Thread: Crop locking

  1. #1

    Default Crop locking

    I think I am about to be crop locked (lots of attacks at once): What do I do? I have avoided the starting clearance attack, now what?

    I have a (pretty epic) defensive hero and 5/6 phalanxs that I can call on in the 15 mins, should they stay or go?

    If you have multiple villages send crop from another and build back out of it. If you only have the one village it depends on whats left. If you say whats left etc and how many vills i'll post more useful info to your situation but theres a number of things which may or may nto be possible depending on the degree to which they hit you.
    You found me!

    make sure you have a market place building at the time of the attacks so that you can stil trade for some wheat.if you have plus get 2 levels of marketplace queued or poss 1 and a main building/granary

    First one was 500 legionaries + lots of rams (I have a (very expensive) level 14 wall, now level 11). Is this good sign or bad sign? 6 mins to next attack (then 30 secs, then 20 secs). Also, I think they are all coming from the same village. Is he just staggering or is he ridiculously forgetful?


    EDIT: Thanks! It wasn't too bad, I have only lost a granary, -3 wall level, -1 cranny level and two wheat fields gone. I am (only) in negative 34 wheat, could have been a lot worse. Thanks a million for all the help.

    Yeah you should be able to NPC out or trade if you don't use gold fine.

    It's always helpful to avoid the first attack and defend against the rest. I know this is useless information now as it's over but for the future ..

    Ok, so you have lost some stuff, but you have also gained a fair bit too.

    You know his main army size, you know the size of his waves, and you know he cant time waves to save his life. So next time he comes, you know what you need to do, or try to do...
    I need help, not ridicule!
