offensive village you should have several hundrad rams, a lvl 25 barracks, and a lvl 20 stable. Keep those two buildings constanly queued with axes and LC until you've filled up the farm space. Should be around 6k axe 3k LC.
For defense either build half spears half swords or 4 Heavy Cavalry for every spearman. This usually ends up around 10k/10k spears/swords or 8k spears 1k HC.
HQ(headquarters)-20/25-to upgrade faster if your wall is damaged by the rams or your buildings have been attacked by catapults and downgraded
Barracks -25-fast recruitment of troops
Stable -20-fast recruitment of ponies
Workshop -i keep it at level 3 in offensive villages
Academy - 1
Smithy -20-must to make noblemen
Rally point - 1
Statue - 1
Market -20-i don't use it much,but you can send a lot of resources
Timber camp -30-2400 resources per hour
Clay pit -30-2400 resources per hour
Iron mine -30-2400 resources per hour
Farm -30-farm space for a lot of troops,a must
Warehouse -30-400k resources fit in it,a must
Hiding place -when you have 5+villages you don't even have to worry about it,when you have under 5 villages get it to level 10-you can always rebuild few levels of wall
Wall -20-1020 basic defense,107% bonus defense
Academy - 0
Rally point - 1
Statue - 1
Market -25-to deliver resources to your offensive villages
Timber camp -30
Clay pit -30
Iron mine -30
Hiding place -0
Some troops to build:
when you have more than 5 villages it is good that you split up your villages.half the villages for offense,half for defense.
in offensive villages you should have this:
1.5/2k light cavalry
500/1k mounted archers
i use 1 scout-or two.they always work
4 noblemen for fast nobles
if you wish you can also have some cats-how much you want.but if you want to noble someone,don't use them.you will just have to rebuild more.
In defensive villages i use this:
500/1k heavy cavalry
pure HC villages just get wiped out by a LC strong army. You're better off just making a spear/HC army. Basically replace the swords with HC.
You shouldn't have too many scout villages (although they are indespensible early on while farming). You should have just a few with 2-3+k scouts. If you're in a war situation where you are constantly being scouted by small scouting fakes then it is a good idea to spread 50-100 scouts into each village, but don't acutally but that many in a village. Build a lot in a few villages and send them out as support. This way if you don't need them for defense you can actually use them in offense.
Cats are practially useless once you stop farming. Some people insist on hitting rally points, but this tactic is so easily countered I don't think it's worth the effort. You more likely to just assume you opponent won't counter it and leave yourself more vunerable.
do you think that LC or axe will kill those archers???what if you hit a villages supported only by archers???what will you do then?don't be stupid...I know i was in the beginning,did the same.but now i kill everything...
