Attacking Strategies Edit

  • If used in large groups; Elite Infantry can be devastating and can destroy a base easily; if not in heavy fire.
  • Mortars are devastating against Heavy Infantry and can kill a group of them in a few hits if in the range of the impact. Spread your elite infantry around so the mortar would have to hit each infantry to kill it and that its impact would not affect other infantry as well or deploy a few heavy cavalry to destroy it.
  • Redoubts can likewise be devastating against Elite Infantry if not dealt with appropriatly. Keep your Infantry away from it until it is destroyed or position them to destroy it quickly.
  • Use ranged infantry such as riflemen to support Elite Infantry
  • Heavy Infantry can be used as a distraction for many defenses and can help protect ranged infantry such as riflemen from heavy fire from defenses.

Put the garrison defended and inside walls or behind a structure for that will have the same effect As walls. That way, the garrison can train elite infantry without getting attacked for a short amount of time. It is recommended that a garrison should be close to the Acropolis since training infantry will be quicker than usual.
  • The level 7 ambush trap deploys assault infantry when triggered by enemy troops are too close to it. It is suggested to put in areas where enemies may deploy in heavy cavalry.
