    Default Strategy guide for tribalwars.

    Hello W55 community.

    Today I am sharing my far from being complete guide for tribalwars and I would like to hear your feedback on it. If you want to help me finishing or testing once more the guide feel free to contact me. I am planning to finish at least the early game part on W55, and yes, I know I am already a year late. It is in fact a very long guide and you can easily follow the progression through each spoiler or skip to the ones you want. I will add soon some links to each posts for quick reference.

    This guide is simply a list of all the strategies I ever saw or think about and that are used during the early stages of the game. I will try to explain them, comment on them, indicate how popular/known they are from what I know and judge in which circumstances it can do the best. Some tactics are already explained, sometimes in further details elsewhere. If you want more information I encourage you doing a search on the forum or mail/pm me by example. If anyone wants to have his own strategy to be added or wants to argue for a modification simply post here, send me a private message or Skype me: (auguthy).
    I did this to practice my English also (sorry for the mistakes) and these strategies require no premium. Sometimes I give links to other people work since I feel it would be a good addition to this guide and to respect their credit for their post. Many guides for early stages already exist also and many guides for particular aspects exist http://forum.tribalwars.net/showthread.php?t=197546.

    A few things to know to begin with

    Farming, to farm and etc means: to send troops to a village to steal their resources. (See further for farming techniques)

    HQ: Village Headquarters. It is the building where you actually have the option to build other buildings.

    Mines: Even if only the iron mine is technically a mine, when player generalizes and talk about their resource pits (like timber camp, clay pit and iron mine) they use the single word mine. (example: My mines are 7/7/4 would mean their timber camp is lvl 7, clay pit lvl 7 and iron mine lvl 4)

    7x7, 13x13, 15x15, 25x25 and etc... means: It is your area. 7x7 is the square around your village usually without premium. It is 7 by 7 squares in the map (or coordinates if you prefer). The same thing apply for any number you may see.

    Noobs and Newbs: Players tend to call noobs, the players who aren’t good, pretend they are, don’t want to learn and/or are arrogant players. Newbs is a term to define a new player, usually less good than experienced players but for many is not seen as an insult.

    Beginner protection: It is the first few days (0 to 7 days usually) where no one can attack your village. You can find the exact number of days in the settings of the world by clicking on help while you are in game, other information and then search for the particular setting beginner protection. Note also that you cannot attack any players during their beginner protection but you are still allowed to attack barbarians or bonus.

    Restarting tip: I personally do not fully agree that restarting to have a better location is a good thing but if luck is on your side you can end up with a better location. You can consider yourself with 2 or more barbs on a location where you should stay. Restarting to be near more barbs or near bonus villages does not always work. The main purpose of having those grey villages near you on the map is to be able to farm them during the beginner protection. To restart simply go on the settings, start over and enter your password. Note that restarting in really early worlds may be forbidden to avoid players abusing from the system.

    Tutorial tip: In every world finishing the tutorial, no matter when, gives you resources and 5 spears. You can cancel your spears attacking if you wish and if they are sent. To open the tutorial if closed, simply go on the settings, on the settings again and you should be able to open it. You can do this only once per world.

    The first few days’ strategies
    Note: It is a good idea to be really active and do each step of those strategy (and send farming runs) as soon as possible to optimize your growth. If you are able to do so for a few days you will have a little advantage on the people less active than you. Don’t worry though if you don’t want to invest yourself in the game too much, you can have fun anyway ;) Tip: Plan the date you’re joining the world to be able to log the most you can or want to.

    Tip: If you have no co player, plan to build the paladin during your night, school, etc or finish it before. It doesn’t matter if he is ready at 1 AM if you can’t send it before 7 AM.
    Tip: Being the first one to farm the barbarians near you can give you an advantage. Usually for active players, the first few barbarians become dry of resources pretty early (during the first or second day).

    Why are you posting a bunch of back-to-back "reserved" spaces? Can you not just post it all in your original post?
