    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).

    Restart mail tactic: [SPOIL]This technique consists to mail your neighbours and try making them restart by either intimidate them or convince them it would be better for them if they restarted. Your goal is to create barbarians to be able to farm them during the beginner protection. Being arrogant leads often to a failure, and failure in this tactic isn’t rare. It works better if you mail them the first time they log-in since they haven’t spent any time to grow their account. This technique is pretty popular as well and is often used by many world hoppers. See the tactic Intimidation for a further development after the first few days.[/SPOIL]

    Extreme barrack Rush

    [SPOIL]HQ 2
    HQ 3
    Barrack
    Constantly build spears and begin farming.
    This isn’t a good strategy most of the time in the early stages. You have a so small income from your lvl 0 mines that even if you rushed for troops, some people with mines will actually have more troops than you do faster + their mine income. This strategy can be used by newbs but is pretty rare. Popularity is rare in the early stage. Some do this only to annoy players and either create spiked farm with no resources or either leave when they understand they made something wrong.
    The good way to use this strategy is when you begin with a village with already mines (like when you join a world later on) and even if you have mines, lvl 4 wood 2 or 3 clay and 1 iron is advisable. Also, include in this strategy (if you have the option) a statue with a paladin to farm before HQ 2. This technique works way better also with the completion of the tutorial and his rewards.
    Many players use this strategy in developed world; efficiency can be really good in these worlds also. Let’s not forget that troops can give a better profit than mines and also allow you to actually play tribalwars.[/SPOIL]

    Barrack rush

    [SPOIL]Clay or Iron lvl 1
    if option 2 statue + paladin
    Wood or Clay lvl 1
    Iron or Wood lvl 1
    (Choose either option 1 everywhere or option 2 everywhere. If you have a paladin choose option 2)
    HQ 2
    HQ 3
    Barrack
    Make spears and begin farming
    This strategy mixed with the new tutorial isn’t as bad as before but if you haven’t the option to gain resources and spears via the tutorial you would be better to not use this one as well in my opinion. Like the Extreme Barrack Rush, the Barrack Rush strategy rush a bit too much troops in most case, slowing your growth. Unless you have 5-6 barbs or more in your 7x7 I would advise you to not try this strategy. However, as I already said, mixed with the rewards of the tutorial it becomes almost as good as a standard barrack strategy and the secure barrack strategy with 3 or less barbs in your 7x7 and can, if you are active a bit, it can be more valuable in some case when you have 4 or more barbs. It works often better on short beginner protections. This strategy isn’t common in the whole Tribal wars community but gained a significant amount of popularity after the release of the new update.[/SPOIL]

    Standard Barrack Strategy

    [SPOIL]Clay or Iron lvl 1
    If option 2 statue + paladin
    Wood or Clay lvl 1
    Iron or Wood lvl 1
    (Choose either option 1 everywhere or option 2 everywhere. If you have a paladin choose option 2)
    Clay 2
    Wood 2
    (Clay 3 optional)
    Wood 3
    Wood 4
    HQ 2
    HQ 3
    Barrack
    Begin to makes spears and to farm.
    This option, even if I called it the standard option, can work well but isn’t always the best choice. On a quick beginner protection (0 to 3 days) and to be sure to farm before or roughly at the same time than most of the people you can use this strategy. It can be used on a longer beginner protection and especially if you have a lot of barbarians or bonus to farm. 1 barbarian or bonus is advised but it works better if you have at least 2 or 3 in your 7x7. This strategy is pretty popular as what I know of and keeps you at the same level of your opponents usually if you log a few times a day during the first days. Some people only go for 3 wood, 1 clay 1 iron or 3 wood 2 clay 1 also. This strategy is really popular.[/SPOIL]

    Secure Barrack Strategy

    [SPOIL]Clay or Iron lvl 1
    ___ or statue + paladin
    Wood or Clay lvl 1
    Iron or Wood lvl 1
    (Choose either option 1 everywhere or option 2 everywhere. If you have a paladin choose option 2)
    Clay 2
    Wood 2
    Clay 3
    Wood 4
    Wood 5
    HQ 2
    HQ 3
    Barrack
    Produce spears and begin farming.
    My comments are pretty much the same. If you have around 2 barbarians in your area this can work and gives you more secure income from mines but sometimes, going as high as this, makes you begin to farm a bit too late with spears. The production of the paladin allows you to gain a significant amount still. If you are a bit less active, on a longer beginner protection or simply feel like having level 5 wood this can be one of the option is to follow this guideline. It is quite popular as well.
    Early Mine Whoring Strategy
    Clay or Iron lvl 1
    ___ or statue + paladin
    Wood or Clay lvl 1
    Iron or Wood lvl 1
    (Choose either option 1 everywhere or option 2 everywhere. If you have a paladin choose option 2)
    Clay 2
    Wood 2
    Clay 3
    Clay 4
    Wood 4
    Clay 5
    Wood 5
    Wood 6
    Wood 7
    (You can get statue and paladin here as well)
    HQ 2
    HQ 3
    Barrack
    Produce spears and begin farming
    With a really low amount of barbarians near you (1 or even zero) this allows you to stay a bit competitive and be able to get a small farming force at least. Some people use pretty much the same technique but stops at clay 4 and wood 6. Some players also add a lvl 2 iron mine as well. It can work as usual but if you have a better area than 1 or zero barbarians in your 7x7, you should try out some other strategies. It is less popular since many players try to have a better location by restarting but for the one willing to play that’s a good way to go. [/SPOIL]

    Heavy Mine-Whoring Strategy

    [SPOIL]Clay or Iron lvl 1
    If option 2 statue + paladin
    Wood or Clay lvl 1
    Iron or Wood lvl 1
    (Choose either option 1 everywhere or option 2 everywhere. If you have a paladin choose option 2)
    Clay 2
    Wood 2
    Clay 3
    Clay 4
    Wood 4
    Clay 5
    Clay 6
    Wood 5
    Iron 2
    Wood 6
    Iron 3
    Clay 7
    Clay 8
    Iron 4
    Wood 7
    Clay 9
    Wood 8
    Iron 5
    Clay 10
    Wood 9
    Iron 6
    Wood 10
    Iron 7
    Iron 8
    (You can get statue and paladin here as well)
    HQ 2
    HQ 3
    Barrack
    Produce spears and begin farming
    In fact, some people like noobs or newbs uses this strategy in no particular order; (wood and clay 10 with iron lvl 8) they sometimes go even higher with their mines and tend to produce the most of their income with their mines income. This tactic is really dangerous, especially if you start in the core. Players will farm you and steal your resources. Also, mine income gives fewer resources than farming. If you plan to be active don’t do such a strategy, if you plan to be competitive as well. This is not a common strategy but it is still too popular. Some people call the players using this strategy Huggers or sim-city players.[/SPOIL]

    Really late start-up

    [SPOIL]In fact, the time you join a world changes a few things in your strategy since you have to adapt to your surroundings. If you join a world in extreme continent and with players with a million point, you must take some few things under consideration also. The rim may not grow more than where it is or very slowly and the density of village can be lowered. You could also begin with a few more buildings than usual. Often, you need to use one of the tactics already listed and to optimize growth in some case, maxing out troops if you can farm properly with all of your troops in your 55x55 isn’t always the best way to produce resources. Building a few mines level could boost your production more. This being said you still need enough troops to keep the most village possible dry and additional troops only helps you when you will come to nobling. Don’t be too ambitious on late stage world since many players are already big but do consider also you have morale to help you survive in most worlds. Enemy attacking troops will fight with less power against you since you are smaller. Later you begin, later you should be nobling if you were asking me advice most of the time. Rushing to noble a small village instead of yourself gaining 2x,3x the points on your main village and gain more troops isn’t always the best choice.[/SPOIL]

    Early game strategies part 1

    These strategies assume you have already have begun one of the strategies listed in the first few days strategies.

    Spear production

    [SPOIL]This consists to produce only spears on your barrack for a while. It is an explanation of the sentence (produce spears and begin farming). There is no exact numbers of spears to produce however many of the players have their own number of spears after they played a bit. Around 18 to 40 for each barb in your 7x7 is pretty much a standard if you are active and a bit less if you are less active. Some people tend also, if they play very accurately and are able to send a lot of farming runs during the day to exceed these numbers by farming outside their 7x7 before the beginner protection is off. (see early farming strategies for further details) This can be mixed with Swords escorting, Sword addition, Early defence strategy, spiking, any market strategy, axes escorting and Light cavalry rush. It is really popular in the early stages.[/SPOIL]

    Point-whoring strategy

    [SPOIL]The point-whoring strategy consists to simply add buildings only to gain points. The players wants to keep high ranks when using this strategy but it leads to their downfall in the rankings later on. Why? They neglect their income. Instead of building troops or more mine levels or getting other useful buildings they build some of these:

    Market too early slows down your growth; build it only if you’re using a market strategy.

    Wall too early, you only need it out of the beginner protection and many players don’t build it anyway.

    Hiding place, useful in some precise occasions but not during the beginner protection

    Smithy too early, you only needs it when you want to add some new units and have already some spears and your paladin.

    High mines, emphasize on farming even if it gives less points.

    Unneeded HQ barrack and stable levels (Most of these buildings early on aren’t needed since you have not the income to keep them working 24 hours a day. You can upgrade them if you see your producing too many resources and can’t build things fast enough.

    Unneeded Farm and warehouse level (if your farm or your warehouse isn’t full, you don’t need to upgrade them yet unless you plan it will overflow)

    Some players also call them sim-city players.[/SPOIL]

    Early farming Strategies

    [SPOIL]Paladin farming: Your paladin will not die, even if he attacks alone, against villages with absolutely no troops and wall. Bonus and barbarian village usually have no troops and have really low wall to no-wall during the first few days. This being said, don’t be afraid to send him alone. He also walks faster than your spears so, sending him alone is the way to farm with your paladin. You can also use it with as a scout since you do not have any. He gathers the same information as any units but he walk fast and is cheap to rebuild. You can find out spiked villages, resources balances and if a village is empty or not.

    Farming with spears: Once you have 4 spears, send them with your paladin on your farming runs. Your paladin, even slowed down, allow some spears to farm and upgrade your income. Spears alone will die! If there is no paladin in your world, 7 is the minimum for the first farming run. Later on you can start escorting with other troops your spears. (in fact, 5 is the strict minimum but with 5 or 6 spears, you actually lose wood (and may lose clay as well with only 5 spears. Since you need wood, 7 should be the minimum.)) Depending on the situation, it is a really good idea also sometimes to wait for a few more spears before sending your first farming run.

    Outdated with version 7.0 What to do with your single spear at home? Well, you can easily, during the beginner protection try to attack your neighbours to find out at which time they’re own beginner protection is off. Now even non-premium account can see when a beginner protection ends.

    The end of the beginner protection: Note this time and plan your farming trips to be able to farm the inactive players at the moment their beginner protection is off. This will give you full hauls if you are the first one to attack them.
    When you reach 32-35 spears you have the chance to send them alone (without the paladin or any units) without having one dying (depending on the luck). At this point, especially if you are still getting full hauls, sending your spears alone and your paladin alone should be your regular farming trips. If you feel however you need an escort, keep your paladin with them or use the strategy Sword escorting or Axes escorting.
    When beginner protection begins to end, you can usually dry an inactive player village with 102 spears, sending more than this is not needed.

    Farming with fewer troops (with escorts if needed) at more villages if they are dry allow you to optimize your income from farming.[/SPOIL]

    Barbarian note

    [SPOIL]This is not truly a strategy, just a few notes in case you want to know and plan ahead on your farming.
    In some worlds (list here) barbarians do not grow.
    When they do, the barbarians queue a random building after a certain amount of time if they reached the requirement for it. They also stop growing at a maximum size defined by the world settings.
    Barbarians usually appear now at a certain rate based on how much players are joining or restarting on the world.[/SPOIL]

    Rim expanding, tip to help you get near your friends

    [SPOIL]The rim expands also at a certain rate. In the first 3 to 6 hours of a world usually, the main core is being formed and after that, the rim (which is the border if the circle) begins to expand. It expands faster when more people are joining and the world meaning that after 1 or 2 weeks usually, we reach the peak of the rim expanding since many players joins the world early. It continue to expand but gets slower and slower until the world is set for no restarting possible which may take some time and happens after a world has closed after new registrations. A map of a world map is basically this. Auto-updating map for .net exists on each world on the main forums.
    Now tip to get near your friends!
    By experience and logic these are what I conclude. First, of course, you can all choose the same direction to join in. But besides that, if you time yourself to join on the early rim (or semi-core if you prefer) it is the best moment to join since the possibilities for locations are smaller. (Usually around 5-7 hours after the start of the world) Also, wait a few minutes between eachother, (I usually do a bit less than 5) and you may be even luckier. Since you are placed randomly on the quarter you chose, other people are joining and they need to equally grow the rim, usually 2 players joining within the same second are not placed near eachother. (Needs more testing) After this, the core is a really good option and while the rim expands, smaller are the chances to join near eachother.[/SPOIL]

    Warehouse and Farm

    [SPOIL]During all the early stage you will have to incorporate a few farm and warehouse levels to be able to avoid overflowing of resources and need farm space. You can plan ahead with your hauls and with the population value of each unit (all the info you need exist in the help section in game). Do not upgrade it higher until you feel you would need to.[/SPOIL]

    Market Rush

    [SPOIL]Statue +paladin (if there is no paladin in this world, don’t even try it...)
    wood 1
    clay 1
    wood 2
    (level 3, 4 wood is optional, level 2 clay also)
    warehouse 2
    market 1
    Use wood to gain 2x the amount of iron on the market.
    Well, this strategy is one of the worse ones to use in early stages (and should’ve been include in the first few days strategies but it is so rare that I just decided to explain it with the other market strategies). By doing this you actually are short in Iron and need to use your wood (which you would need to use for spears in fact) to get that iron you need. I never saw anyone but me trying this (I was testing) and in more than 99% of the cases, it slows you down a lot.
    However if you are interested in hearing a bit more about this, I cared to explain how it could benefit the player using this (I may still be wrong in my calculations but I think they are right) and what would be needed to make it work in this thread (beginning at post 11).http://forum.tribalwars.net/showthread.php?t=216058&highlight=market+strategy [/SPOIL]

    Market Strategy

    [SPOIL]Warehouse lvl 2
    Market lvl 1
    Store a surplus of iron (do an offer 1000 iron for 2000 wood with 1 hour range by example)
    This strategy is used by many active players since the production of spears creates a surplus of iron. If you don’t want to spend your resources too much on your warehouse to get more troops to raise your income let’s say and you have soon a resource that will exceed your warehouse capacity, use this strategy. It is worth pretty much the same as a warehouse lvl 5 in carrying capacity but only for 1 resource. You can get more market level to gain more storage capacity. Of course the warehouse is better than the market for storing resources but at the very early stage it has his benefits. This strategy can be easily mixed with pretty much any strategy you are using but especially with those: Spear production, Market Rush, Market addition, Swords escorting, Early defence strategy and Light cavalry rush. It is the main purpose of having a market before the end of the beginner protection.[/SPOIL]

    Market Addition

    [SPOIL]Warehouse lvl 2
    Market lvl 1 (more levels will be added in the future)
    Other than use your market to store, you can actually use it for trading... If you are less active you will get your market after the beginner protection is off probably since before this, trading is pretty rare. If you have resources you do not need, or need some resources, the market can make a difference. Top players do not only use troops to gain resources, they also seek offers on the market. If you find offers with ratios lower than 1, consider taking some even if you have plenty of resources and don’t need a particular kind currently. (You also need a market lvl 10 for the academy as a minimum) This strategy can be mixed with pretty much any other strategies and is very popular; most players do have a market.[/SPOIL]

    Swords Escorting

    [SPOIL]Headquarters 4
    Headquarters 5
    Smithy lvl 1 (swords should be researched, or lvl 1)
    Build a few swords to escorts spears group.
    This consists on building a few swords (1 to 5 usually per groups of 20-35 spears) to send with your spears to avoid having any spears dying during the farming runs (and can free up your paladin to farm alone). Especially if you have an Iron surplus even bigger than usual, going for sword escorts can be a good choice. It does not always stops you rushing light cavalry, far from that; it helps you getting resources faster. The downside of this strategy is simply that the swords slow down your spear group since they walk slowly. However, you also have to take into consideration his hauling capacity is bigger than the axemen. I strongly suggest not mixing the sword escorting during the beginner protection with the Axe escorting, choosing one or the other. Here, the beginner protection should still be on if you plan to use this strategy to his maximum benefits (sooner the better) but as long as you have full hauls with spears there should be no rush going for swords. However, you can also use it after the beginner protection according to which villages you are farming and if you already have swords from your beginner protection. Players planning to play defensively often use the swords for escorts. This strategy can be easily mixed with the Early defence strategy and the Spiking. This technique is used by many players and is quite popular, especially on really early worlds.[/SPOIL]

    Spiking

    [SPOIL](It should be a follow up of the Sword escorting strategy)
    Build a few more swords than needed for farming. (10 to 15 can pretty much be enough)
    Then, still during the beginner protection, send some swords (some send spears and the paladin also) to support barbarians or bonus village having the goal to kill the spears of your neighbours. (the verb to spike is what we use in game for this technique)If you plan to do this, consider you aren’t getting any profit temporarily with the goal of having a few more resources later on by farming more than your neighbours since you would have logically more troops. This strategy is far from having a consensus between the TribalWars community, many players do say it slow you down, many others do say it is profitable but there is no real answer that has proven without any doubt that in every circumstances it slows you down. It is used only in really early stage most of the time and is popular enough to be part of the core early stage gameplay in your planning sometimes. Use this tactic only if you have some experience in early game and know what you are doing. See this thread for further details:
    My other tip is, spiking a village already spiked may be better than spiking a village non spiked in some scenarios, 1 you have less losses if the other troops are there and 2, the player who spiked the village may withdraw his own troops to farm this village and finish by hitting a spike also.[/SPOIL]

    Early Defence strategy

    [SPOIL](It should be a follow up of the Sword escorting strategy)
    Wall lvl 1 to 5
    Build more swords than needed for farming (10 to 15 can work as a minimum), later you use this, the more troops and wall levels you will need.
    This strategy consists on trying to kill enemy troops directly when the beginner protection if off easily without too much losses. The best conditions to use this is if theres a few players with alot of spears but almost nothing else in your area and if these players are less experienced or noobs. It also can be mixed with the Turtling strategy. Make them angry, mail them, send a fake attack of 2 spears saying you would farm them to look stupid, etc... Use what you want to make him attack you. Be prepared with a wall level and swords (and spears if you wish) to defend against those small spears attacks.
    Comments: Why should we doing this? In some precise cases, killing your neighbours troops either to avoid them stealing resources from nearby barbarians or inactive players from you or avoid them getting too strong can be a good strategy if you can manage to suffer very low losses. (Plan ahead if you want to try this and use the simulator before trying a defence) However, in most case, this investment in defence could slow you down and not give all the benefits from it you would like to. Also, against experienced and intelligent players, this strategy will probably not work. It is a rare tactic and far from being properly used in most cases. I recommend, especially if you are a new player, to read How to properly defend at start-up.[/SPOIL]

    Early defence strategy (addition for archers)

    [SPOIL]Barrack 2
    Barrack 3
    Barrack 4
    Barrack 5
    Smithy 2
    Smithy 3
    Smithy 4
    Smithy 5
    Research archers
    Wall lvl 1 to 7-8
    Build as many archers as you want (I haven’t made enough tests here to specify precise numbers and would appreciate feedback if never anyone has tried this)
    This can also be used on archer worlds adding the archers to your defense. A real Turtle would use this on archer worlds and this can be mixed with the Light cavalry addition. In a long beginner protection, this can be an alternative for defensive players and still approach you to light cavalry which should be your goal if you mix your village with offense and defence. Note that there is no specific order for the smithy and barrack levels. Often, experienced players will try to build smithy levels if they know they won’t have the resources to queue more buildings for quite some times or barrack levels if they know they have the resources to keep their HQ working. Building the barrack first allows you to produce soldiers faster but you may be low on resources anyway. From what I know, this tactic is really rare even if with common sense many players would know how to do it.[/SPOIL]

    Intimidation

    [SPOIL]Intimidation is a big part of the game and is often under-rated or not used properly and correctly. The first step to any defence in early stage is often your size, your troops and some awards proving you have troops and use them. Any regular player will think twice before attacking a big and strong player and sometimes, top players do not in fact receive incomings for a while. However, do not try to mix the point-whoring strategy with this, it is really dangerous and if you are discovered being a point-whore, no matter your size, everyone will try to steal your resources. Being also polite, funny and not acting like an idiot can save you in many cases many problems, especially for your long term defense and reputation. A few accomplishment can sometimes be showed and convince players to avoid entering in a conflict with you. This being said, playing aggressively can earn you some respect but also can gives some reasons for a few to try to attack you. I strongly suggest to read also How to properly defend at start-up to get your whole defensive strategy set-up. Also read this http://forum.tribalwars.net/showthread.php?t=216324 if you are a new player and if you want to earn some respect in the game.[/SPOIL]

    Axes Escorting

    [SPOIL]HQ 4
    HQ 5
    Smithy 1
    Smithy 2
    Research axe (only lvl 1 for now if there is levels)
    Recruit a few axes (1 to 5 per spear group)
    This is basically the same thing as the Sword escorting but you use axes instead. Choosing either sword or axes is usually what players do. Going for axes allows you to train swordsmen also but shouldn’t be needed now if you chose this strategy. Splitting your spears in smaller groups with axes allows you to steal more resources from more villages. What is the difference? Axes do not slow down your spears on the farming runs and, if you are really active, allow you to gain more resources faster than your neighbours. However, if your farms becomes dry really soon, waiting for the resources to research the axe can slow you down and the sword escorts are less expensive. In many cases, going for a axe escorting can slow you down also. This tactic works even better if you have a really good location and your farms become dry when you almost met all the requirements to recruit axes (or all of them). This strategy also works better on 10 tech worlds. This can be mixed with the Early axe nuke, Light cavalry rush and the Light cavalry addition. Also you can use the Scouts to gain even more efficiency. This is also a well known tactic and is popular in the early stage.[/SPOIL]

    Early axe nuke

    [SPOIL](This is a follow up of the axe escorting)
    -Build mostly axes, a few more spears during the beginner protection (no buildings unless it is needed like the warehouse or the farm)
    This strategy consists on building a large offensive force compared to your enemies to be able to clear at really low cost your neighbours. This strategy to be really effective requires also a lot of activity and works well when your farms are dry. If you think you cannot afford the Light cavalry rush try this. Spears still are good units to farm and after clearing the few inactives you may have around you; these axes may allow you to boost your own growth. It works well on long beginner protection. The best location to use this would be in the core or early rim and when very few experienced players are around you. If you have plenty of active people around you it could be a good choice, especially if you plan going pure offense and if they aren’t experienced as already said. Then, once your resources are finally rolling I suggest you following the strategy Light cavalry addition after you are done with this one. There’s a big bunch of people doing this but often they end up having a offense force not so big since they can’t be online as much as the top players. Clearing is not necessarily the best option either since you are having losses.[/SPOIL]

    Upgrading mines strategy

    [SPOIL]Upgrade your timber camp, your clay pit or your iron mine according to the resource you need the most.
    This strategy is very popular and, even if in many case it is wrongly used once more, in moderation and according to your needs, it can be a good option. Especially if the beginner protection is long you shouldn’t be afraid of adding a few more mine levels to upgrade your income. Plan ahead and if your farming force is having trouble getting a low amount of resources and also hit many spikes, this can be used and help you. If you want to add a few mine levels, be sure to get them before you begin any other strategy to optimize your income.[/SPOIL]

    Research scouts (if there is levels, you need lvl 1)
    Recruit a few scouts (1 to 5 can be good in most cases). In some worlds you however need at least 4 scouts to get a report though so getting 4 to 15 can be good.
    This tactic consists on gather information about the remaining resources in the barbarians and bonus villages. It also leads after the beginner protection to gather information on your neighbours resources and troops. Scouts can be sent with farming runs or without and survive if there is no scouts in the attacked village. Scouts aren’t necessary to get as soon in most cases and there is some ways to actually have a lot of information on both troop counts and resources in many villages without their help. Check Advanced Farming Tactics and clearing for more information. That is one of the reason many players skip scouts to make a Light cavalry rush even faster. However, if you are active, getting scouts on the core when all villages are empty can allow you to both plan your hauls and maybe find good farms further out without taking the risk to lose more times for even fewer resources further. It is also a popular tactic but it is not always used for farming in the really early stage. Some players do also create a small white wall (a defence of scout) to block any scout attack.[/SPOIL]

    Research light cavalry (lvl 1 will do to begin with)
    Build only light cavalry (and warehouse+ farm levels when needed) until you are able to have light cavalry in production 24 hours a day.
    This tactic is really popular and of course can be really effective for farming since the best unit to farm is often considered the light cavalry for his speed and his hauling capacity. A single light cavalry will survive against no wall and no defence. Try to send light cavalry alone in groups to keep their speed advantage. The light cavalry rush works better in short beginner protection and works very well if you are active. It works also pretty well on 10 tech worlds. Getting light cavalry before the beginner protection should be your goal only if you are actively farming your area. Note that there is no specific order for the smithy and barrack levels and that sometimes some people research and recruits new kind of units during the process to get to light cavalry. (like scouts or axes) Often, experienced players will try to build smithy levels if they know they won’t have the resources to queue more buildings for quite some times or barrack levels if they know they have the resources to keep their HQ working. Building the barrack first allow you to produce soldiers faster also if you are still recruiting soldiers. It is a quite popular strategy as well.[/SPOIL]

    Wall addition and hiding place

    [SPOIL]A good number of players do decide to build a wall before the beginner protection or after without any real goal in mind. Especially if you are in the core, getting a lvl 1 in the last few minutes of the beginner protection or a few minutes/ hours after it ended can be a good investment. The wall at this stage is pretty much invincible and do add a bit more defence to your village. However, as long as it is not needed, some players consider the cheap cost of the wall an investment that should be avoid if you are online 24 hours a day 7 days a week. It would be better increase your income since your defence has no real use to make you grow. Some players queue some wall levels once both of the barrack and stable are running constantly to keep running their HQ also and having at least a small wall growing with your village is advisable. The same principle occurs for the hiding place but many players neglect even more their hiding place than their wall. [/SPOIL]

    Build only light cavalry (and warehouse+ farm levels when needed) until you are able to have light cavalry in production 24 hours a day.
    Usually, at this step, you are out of the beginner protection. It is possible you have already a few of the buildings listed if you already have scouts by example and the exact order doesn’t exist once more here. It is pretty much the same concept as the Light Cavalry Rush if you want more details. Often if you are using this, you already researched a few kinds of units also. This strategy is also being used by a significant amount of players.[/SPOIL]

    Defence after beginner protection.

    [SPOIL]In most case, building defence units like swords or archers does not necessary boost your growth. If you are able to keep your stable working 24 hours a day and you do not need axes for any clearing task, build some more spears to increase your farming capacity. Spears are defensive units but are used to farm like any other units. No matter what are your troops, they should always be out farming even if they are defensive troops. Many players keep their troops at home and many players recruit axes but few experienced players recruit spears if they have axes researched.
    Some people do however build a defence and in this case, you should know what you want to kill. Spears are good versus cavalry, swords against axes and archers in top of that can help also. A defence is stronger when more kind of units and in good proportions is built. Many players do try to defend themselves and it is not a productive way to play tribalwars early on. The requirement for swords is a smithy lvl 1, for archers you need barrack lvl 5 and smithy lvl 5.[/SPOIL]

    24 hours a day, 7 days a week (24/7)

    [SPOIL]The goal of many experienced Tribalwars players is to keep firstly the stable running at all time, then the barrack and then the HQ. That means that, if you want to use the best strategy you need to recruit your Light cavalry (maybe scouts, mounted archers and heavy cavalry also) in the stable first, then your axes (or spears, swords and archers) in your barrack secondly and then other buildings in your Headquarters. You still have to keep building your farm though and your warehouse while doing this. Many experienced players will, when they actually have many light cavalry and axes in queue, begin to upgrade their HQ. Most players raise it to lvl 20 but the top players usually go between lvl 23 and lvl 27. Once you have this you can produce buildings faster. You can then upgrade your stable and barrack to produce more units faster and slowly planning and entering the Early game Part 2.[/SPOIL]

    Demolishing strategy

    [SPOIL]This is a really rare strategy but becomes popular while the world expands. This consist on demolishing your own buildings temporarily when you see your farm filling up a bit quickly and want to continue produce troops. Sometimes, you can free up new farm space faster by demolishing a few buildings than waiting for another farm level. You can then queue also a farm level after and rebuild your demolished buildings. This is a counterproductive strategy most of the case but becomes a good strategy a bit later in the game. If by example you use frequently your market and need it to level 20 once you got your second village but feel you now need it lower, this can free up a few villagers to become soldiers. At this point the demolishing strategy is more popular. Also, some players to demolish faster cat themselves and, by doing this, they can also continue to grow their village by actually building new buildings instead of demolishing old ones.[/SPOIL]

    Advanced Farming Tactics and clearing

    [SPOIL]Besides finding out which player is inactive you can also make approximations and scenarios on who has which buildings/troops and who farms where. If you do this properly you can find out a lot of information, sometimes even more than what scouts can give you. This requires time though but if you are bored between 2 farming runs, you can do these things: Use the points table in the help section to figure who built which building. Considering they may have built only a few mine levels, a barrack and few other buildings, it is not hard to figure if you update their point growth with server updates what they do have actually (roughly of course for the exact type of mine or farm level but you can figure by logic which levels they built according to the strategy they may have used.) Other than this, you can calculate how much resources there is left on a barbarian and which mine he built by checking your hauls and the mine incomes for each level of mines. You can find out by checking the balance of your hauls which mine levels your farmed village built. Very few players take the time to do such things though.

    Before adding a new farm to your routine, many players suggest to have already farming runs going and going back from each of your farms constantly if you are really active. You should also avoid clearing and any task that would make you lost troops in most case since each troop you have is a part of your income. Farming more villages to get more hauls if your hauls are dry is a good solution and keep looking on the growth of your area. High ODD score also can indicate a player has defended himself already and has probably less or no troops to defend his village. The same goes for ODA, he may have lost offense troops but be aware that very often, having some ODA can indicate how active is a player and that even a low amount of offensive troops is enough to kill a big amount of your own offensive troops with back timing by example. This being said, losing an axe time to time while clearing has a really low impact on your troop count.

    The awards can also give some rough idea of the player and how he built his profile. Usually ascii art is typical from less experienced players and revelation about a player or a tribe diplomacy is also. Don’t forget after all that tribalwars is a social game so don’t be afraid to talk to your neighbours or to duke of some tribes and etc... You can find sometimes the most vital information in a conversation if your conversational partner does make mistakes like revealing a few aspects you could use to your advantage. Also, some players mail their neighbours to try to figure their online time. They can do so by checking when you read the mail or replied to it. They would then try to exploit the players while they are not online with their troops or in their attack planning.

    Finally, don’t let yourself impressed by anyone and act both in conversations and in the game the way you want to be seen. If you want to be seen like a noob or not being noticed, then do not try to argue with everyone everywhere ;) If you want to be noticed to intimidate some players, do so. Always keep in mind what is your goal.[/SPOIL]

    How to properly defend at start-up

    [SPOIL]There is a few tactics to defend your village at a really poor cost in early stage. The only dangerous attack you may receive early on is catapults and nobles (see Catapults addition, nobling and noble train).
    You can figure out the speed easily of the troops if you have premium (it is still doable on non premium accounts) coming at your village if you are online by comparing the walking speed of the units and the total travelling speed. This way you can guess which units are attacking.
    See this THREAD for non-premium players (well any players in fact)
    There is still a way to figure out when the attack was sent if you do not know also exactly when it was by checking attacks ids. (This thread)

    Once this first step has been reach, dodge the attack
    Dodging consists on sending your troops elsewhere to avoid your attacker killing any of your troops home. To optimize your dodging, you also spend your resources or send them to your farm to be able to farm them back (often you send them to the barbarian you sent your troops to dodge). Raising your hiding place to hide the few leftovers saves you resources. Then, if you have a wall, your wall does some small damage to his troops and the attacker gains nothing or almost.

    After that, a tactic called backtiming is an option. It is simply to time your dodge so your troops returns the sooner you can after the enemy attack and attack back with the same walking speed the fastest you can. It is used against players going mainly offensive since you can kill their troops with very few losses. The term backtiming has been extend to also: time an attack to land when his own troops are returning, meaning you can sometimes backtime him before he attacked you or can afford a longer dodge and still be able to reach his rams, cats or nobles with axes by example.
    When you are facing a noble train, you probably have no other choice than both sniping and backtime your opponent. Sniping consist on having troops either returning home or being sent in support in your villages (by tribemates by example) after the first of the 4-5 noble attack but blocking the other ones. If you manage to hit the nobles with a backtime it saves you many troubles also after this and can guarantee your survival against this player.[/SPOIL]

    Countering Backtimes and anti-Backtimes strategies

    [SPOIL]However, there is also a tactic to avoid being backtimed. You use a few cats (10-25 can do the job) and with your attack, you cat down his rally point. This way, he is unable to send troops back at you right away. Of course if he backtimes you after with only axes, there is really few things you can do. Faking him alot and time more catapults to cat down again and again his rally point is your best option if he is online 24 hours a day. (catching him offline can work pretty good also sometimes if he is really near you) However he still can be able to backtime you and if it is the case, you can also try a counterbacktime, or backtime him once more by dodging fast, and resending if you prefer.
    Another strategy to avoid being unable to backtime your enemy is demolishing your own rally point (you need a HQ lvl15 at least) and time his construction back to be done just after he attacked you, it avoids him being able to knock down your rally point when you need it. Make sure to dodge troops before doing so.
    For backtiming and all the strategies surrounding that you would find more information by mailing some players or doing a small search on the guide section. These kinds of strategies are used by really limited experienced players.[/SPOIL]

    Militia in defence

    [SPOIL]In the latest version of the game, a new unit has been introduced for the early stage, the militia. It is technically free and gives you quite some free units. You get 20 per farm level and 300 as a maximum. They last 6 hours and can’t move from villages to villages. However they cost you about 3 hours of mine production, reducing all your mines income by half during these 6 hours. It can still be very cheap to afford especially if you have low mine levels and can hurt a lot your attacker if he tries to farm you by example. This unit is pretty new so, besides having a few speculations with sniping with militia, no real tactics or strategies besides his normal use has been developed yet. Even with this new unit, if you do not need to hurt your attacker, or simply can’t hurt him much, it would be better resourcefully to avoid the use of the militia if you are really active especially.[/SPOIL]

    Christmas break and New Year Break in early stages

    [SPOIL]One of the last things that comes to my mind about the very early stage is the possibility to have a Christmas break or and/or a New year break occurring. Usually from 24 to 27 of December and from 31 to January 2 each year there is a time when you are unable to kill or steal any resources in the game, even from barbarians and bonus. If it is the case, you have to consider you will have absolutely 0 incomes from your farming and all that would be left is your mine production. This does not necessary mean you have to raise your mine during this period or before but this does mean you have to prepare yourself for it. A good tactic choice is, since you have time but no resources, build buildings with a long construction time such as the smithy. Anyway, you may have not enough resources to keep going all short buildings and your creation of troops. Remember also that, when the break finish, the barbarians and inactive players (like when the beginner protection ends) will have a few more resources than usually and being the first one to farm them gives you once more a slight advantage. You can take also the time to calculate what will be on each village when you will be able to attack them during these periods if you really want to play during Christmas or the New Year. It is possible to send support and attack as normal during the break (break rule has changed this year and during a certain period we are now completly unable to do so) but if any attacks lands while the break is on; your troops will visit the village and come back with nothing. Your support will stay on the supported village though and nobling just before the break begins gives you a bit more time to support the village and gain back loyalty.
    The effect of the breaks is reduced if your account has been played for longer and/or if the world has been on for sometimes. It is also easier to keep every building running the later this occurs.[/SPOIL]

    Church
    [SPOIL]If you are wondering what is the use of the church (if it exists on your world), so far there were probably none. Just try to keep yours alive and don’t demolish it for now. See Church addition for further details.[/SPOIL]

    Early game part 2

    Upgrading Mines Strategy (part 2)

    [SPOIL]Again, at the beginning of the early stage part 2 is a good moment to build a few more mines levels in some cases. Like for the Upgrading Mines Strategy (part 1) according to your need and in good proportions, a few more Iron mine or wood levels very often can be a good investment. Using this before beginning another strategy optimizes his efficiency. Especially if you plan using the HQ upgrading strategy and are still a bit short in resources while producing troops 24 hours a day, adding a few mines levels to keep going your village headquarter and increase your income can be a good option. Usually Iron is the resource you need the most and people have already calculated that a lvl 17 iron mine is the highest level for your iron mine that doesn’t slow you down to nobles. However, skip this strategy if you have no trouble finding resources! It is a good strategy to use as a follow up of the 24 hours a day, 7 days a week (24/7) strategy. It is quite popular also as a tactic.
    Upgrading mines strategy (part 2 late game)
    If your area, especially if you are on a advanced world, doesn’t allow you to farm more (map of the farming efficiency) upgrading your mines even higher than what is suggested before could be an option. Raising your mines between 18 to 22 usually can help but going as high as 24 and 25 can be a good option also depending on the cases. I need to do more testing to give precise mines details for both of these strategies but many variables exists that modify most of the builds.[/SPOIL]

    HQ upgrading

    [SPOIL]As the best following strategy in a perfect world of the 24 hours a day, 7 days a week (24/7) strategy, the HQ upgrading is really simple. As long as you build troops on your stables and barrack 24 hours a day, you now also produce buildings 24 hours a day on your HQ and to optimize your time, build HQ levels to reduce your building time. Players usually stop to 20 but many experienced players increase it a few more levels (max being 27 in most cases). Once you have done this, you can also increase your stable and barrack levels to create even more troops to farm even more and kill your surroundings. [/SPOIL]

    Rams addition

    [SPOIL]After you decided you had enough mine levels and HQ levels you can pass to other units or buildings such as the rams and the workshop. However, you need this.
    Smithy lvl 6
    Smithy lvl 7
    Smithy lvl 8
    Smithy lvl 9
    Smithy lvl 10
    Workshop lvl 1
    Research rams lvl 1 (or more if you wish)
    Begin to build rams as you need them or 24 hours a day also especially if you are using the Pure offense strategy. The main purpose to have rams is to be able to reduce the defence of your farms by demolishing their wall. They also reduce your troop losses reducing the wall effect by half before demolishing it. By getting rams, you both lose fewer troops, allowing to the extent you to farm a bit more, and also reduce the required troops to be sent on some farms allowing to haul more resources more frequently. It is the primary option to the strategy catapulting your farms. Many players already have left the world by the time they reach rams unfortunately due to the rough competition on an early world but they become almost essential to keep you at least a bit dangerous to your neighbours. I strongly suggest getting rams if you are following also the mixed village strategy and the mixed defensive village strategy. Rams also allow you now to have another offensive and defensive option called the fake.[/SPOIL]

    Market
    [SPOIL]The market is a relatively cheap investment compared to his advantages. While I already explained his main purpose, keep in mind that your merchant capacity increase with the market but usually you can survive pretty well with a low level market before the nobling stages. However, I strongly suggest having a market at least level 10 before going for lvl 15-20 smithy and the academy. It is required anyway for the academy. Keep upgrading it time to time![/SPOIL]

    Catapults addition

    [SPOIL]Workshop level 2
    Smithy lvl 11
    Smithy lvl 12
    Research catapults.
    As a logic follow up of the Rams addition, the catapults can be very useful in many case in early stages. While it is at this stage they are used the most, they still technically keep their value for different strategies in mid and late game. They become essential on the prenobling stage to discourage people trying to noble you or slow you down and they also become essential to really hurt someone if he is still alive at this point. Even if I would consider this unit the defensive one of the workshop, they are mainly use in attack and you can find the catapult table here to calculate how much buildings level you can destroy. They have a better effect if they are sent on smaller wave than all at once. They are required in advance backtiming and nobling tactics and are required for catapulting your farms. Also, if you are in a world with the new weapons for the paladin activated, they become extremely strong mixed with the bonfire weapon that increases by 100 percent their defence force and the paladin in defence. That is why a few tribes try to get a small force of catapults each in the hope someone has this weapon and that everyone could defend everyone everywhere.[/SPOIL]

    Catapulting your farms

    [SPOIL]Catapulting your farm has 2 major uses.
    The first one consists on simply convincing players to abandon and restart so you could expect absolutely no retaliation from them anymore. It is the main tactic about catapulting your farm and it is very simple. Do not destroy resource pits or even warehouse on some case if you plan to continue to send troops there to get resources.
    The second one is present only on worlds with growing barbarians. Since they grow to a certain maximum of points, you could want to alter their growth by catapulting those barbarians to get rid of buildings which do not make him gain resources, so basically almost anything but warehouse and resources pits once more. Once you demolished a few buildings, he will be able to queue another time randomly a new building which may be a resource one allowing you to then have a slight better profit on that particular barb. Catapulting walls exists also as a tactic in the case no rams are available currently to avoid possibly losses in the future while farming the barbarians. In this case it can also replace rams for someone using the turtling strategy.[/SPOIL]
