Coin Strategy - Excellent

Coin Strategy - ATM

The strategy I am about to explain here is called ATM strategy, it is an easy way to get coins without having dwellings.

The concept is this, you need to attack 200 Level 1 RBC and then all the RBCs stop leveling up. So, then you can attack RBC in Ice or Sand or Fire and they wont level up. So you can attack 9 RBCs everyday and collect a lot of coins. As all of them would be at the same level, so you need to spy only 1 of them and all the rest would have the same number and formation of soldiers and tools.

Guide - Thorn King Event

Hello Everybody,

I am here to explain you how to complete the Thorn King event without spending much rubies.
If you play this game, you would be well aware of the terms Ruby player and non Ruby players. Well, I am a ruby player, but most of my alliance is not. So, I decided this time to complete the Thorn event without spending a single Ruby yet completing it with just strategy and perfect timing.
So, this is what I do.

Since the event started, approx last 1 week, all I have done is attack small RVs and collect resources from them and made up small tents and decorative items. My target is to get to 200% Morale and approx 60 soldiers for now.

As you can see in my camp, I don't have a single Ruby building.

Now, all you need to do is, attack the small RVs for about a week, build up your army and then start attacking the bigger towers.
I will show you how to attack the RVs.
I usually attack on 2 flanks. These soldiers are not versatile soldiers, so I attack melee soldiers with ranged and vice versa. No need to use tools on small RVs.
That is it, I seldom lose any soldiers while attacking them. Attack them 10-15 times a day and you are good to go.

Guys dont forget to check out this post:

You get to defeat mystery cows!!!!!

This is where my cutie cow is hiding :D Come on Cow, I am coming to get you soon!!

Don't take the cow lightly, it is important to complete the task for hidden achievement.

My attack on the way to Holy cows!!

Report: I had only 62 soldiers, yet killed 132 cows taking a loss of 40 soldiers.

This is how the cows look. Cutie pie......

This is the achievement.

Tejas was the first player from our alliance to complete the event. Here are the reports for the rest of us:

This is my attack to Level 40 tower, second tower after the bridge.

For this attack, I use first 2 waves of martyr waves and then this attack on 3rd wave.
4th wave I dumped some 20 odd Melee KG attack soldiers.

Awesome results:

Lost 6 spearmen, which were the martyr wave (meant to die and kill the tools), rest not even 1 soldier lost.
197 undead killed (or unkilled :P), and No loss what so ever.

This again proves that 20 Mantlets can kill hundred ranged defense soldiers.

My next attack is on Level 45 Tower, just 2 steps away from Necromancer's castle.
I am in bit of a soup here. My tools are burnt out, my food is burning fast, I cannot send the extra soldiers back. So either I stay and keep attacking RVs for food or I go for a kill. Well, to hell with it, I attacked Level 45 with whatever I had. Here is how it looks like:

I had no more spearman, so had to sacrifice a bear soldier. :(

This is espionage of Right flank as well as my Wave 1.

This is how my wave 2 looked and the espionage of Center flank.

This is Wave 3 and Espionage of Left flank.

Risk didnt pay off well, lost all my soldiers. :( But I can bet it would have been a very close battle.

This time I took my revenge and defeated the tower. I was using normal soldiers here (2handed and HC) that is the reason the losses are major.

The next Tower

Necromancer's castle Combat report.

Once you defeat the Necromancer's castle, you get an option to exit the event just below the XP task book.

You have an option to stay and defeat more towers and gather more resources or quit. I was hell bored already, so guess what I did!!!
Took my deco and decorated my castle.

Now this is extremely F****d up....... After completing the event I get to know that I dont get 100% achievement points as I had to defeat all the towers to get that. So make sure you do....

Guide on how to attack Robber Baron Castle and other castles in Goodgame Empire

Guide on how to attack Robber Baron Castle and other castles in Goodgame Empire

Hello Guys,

What I am about to share with you is something that I learnt from Bhutnath yesterday. So the entire credit goes to him. :)

In this guide I would refer to Towers as follows:

RBC: Robber Baron Castle
Barbarian Tower: BT
Desert Tower: DT
Cultists Tower: CT
All of above: ALLRBC

First of all, try to keep 2-3 ALLRBCs at the same exact level near by to your castles.

Today's Special for all my Friends in the Gaming World.

For example: Check this screen shot. All the DT are Level 42, 3 victories to Level 43.

3 DT at same exact level

The benefit of keeping them at the exact same level is that if you spy 1 of them, the other 2 will have the exact same arrangement of soldiers and tools. So instead of spying 3 DT, I spy 1 of them and launch an attack on all 3 at the same time. For this you will need a huge army, so focus on plundering food, that ways you can maintain your army food supplies.

Take a look at this example:

I spied on only 1 DT, but I know that the rest of the 2 would have same arrangement and number of tools and soldiers.

This is the espionage report:

Now comes the part, how I should attack this DT.

Here is what I would do.

Since there are no defenses on Left and right flank and there are only 1 unique tool in the center flank, I will send 1 martyr wave. 

Martyr wave is when you send 1 or 2 waves of 1 cheapest soldier that you have to take out the defense tools of the defender.

PS: As left and right flanks are empty, you can put your main soldiers in the wave 1, I did not do it as number of defenders in the Courtyard is None, so I dont need a very big attack to defeat the defenders.

See below:

Now Wave 2 and onwards I will add as much attack power as I can.

Now let us focus on wave 2, as this is where all the action would be. Wave 3 and 4 will most probably have no action, as Wave 2 should be the decider.

The center flank has 24 Ranged and 16 Melee defenders. Another thing to keep in mind is the weakness of defense soldiers.

For example: Greenland soldiers, most of them have weakness against opposite attackers. Bowman's description says "Good in defense, Ideal against ranged attackers", which means if you attack bowman with Melee, it is better. BUT, the story changes Iceland and above. Iceland, Desert and Fire peaks they all have versatile soldiers,i.e. Good in defense against melee and ranged. So Iceland and above, you can just pick the greater number of soldiers and send opposite attack soldier.

Now in our case, as the number of ranged defenders is greater, so I will send all Melee attackers to counter them.

How to use tools:

Even though our Martyr wave will take out all the tools, yet it is better to send some tools to gain the extra benefit on the wall. Since my soldiers will fight on the wall only on the center flank, so I will load my tools only there.

You need to check the wall defense, gate protection and defense of ranged soldiers to decide how many tools to us. Please do not forget to check Troop and Tools Stats

In Wave 2, I have sent 130 KG soldiers to attack 40 DT soldiers. It should be enough and Wave 3 and 4 should only be a formality, so if you want you can load wave 3 with Loot sacks (and Glory banners, if you are attacking a human castle rather than ALLRBC.)

Anyways, here are the screenshots of Wave 3 and 4 respectively:

Another school of thought is why not send a mix of melee and defense soldiers when defenders are mixed. The explanation I was given by Bhutnath is that the game calculates the total power, irrespective of which soldiers you attack with. I experimented with it on few occasions and did not find any discrepancy to the logic given by him. But you are free to experiment and update us all.

This is the attack on the way.

Here are the Combat reports:

34 soldiers lost total

This is the attack overview:

 Wave 1: As you can see below, the Martyr took out both the tools at the wall.

Wave 2: As I told you earlier, wave 2 is the deciding force, I had lesser tools so I sent lesser tools, if you send more tools you can save more of your soldiers. Observe that the defender has no tools and all the defenders are killed here.

Wave 3 and 4 are only to strengthen your attack and to take over defenders at the courtyard.

You need to focus on the same exact strategy everywhere. By that I mean, keep 3-4 RBC at the same level, nearest to your castle. 3-4 BT, DT and CT at the same level, Even if you attack them 2-3 times in a day, you r army wont die of starvation, plus you will get tons of resources. That ways you can have 3 shining Food OP in Greenland and maintain high army counts.

I used the same composition of attack on the 2nd DT at similar level.

The only Difference being that this time I attacked with mixed soldiers. 80 Melee and 50 ranged.

I had to use ruby tools as I was out of normal tools, but I leveled them out. Infact the tools are -5% in Ruby attack as compared to previous non ruby tools attack.

You can check the screenshot above, it clearly says No espionage carried out. Yet it would be exactly the same as the previous one. 

Few things to remember:

  • At times the soldiers change their formation symmetrically  so you need to ensure that you attack them as soon as possible, before they get smart and change their formation.
  • It is best if you attack all 2-3 of them at the same time, thus you can avoid the problem mentioned above.
  • If you plan to attack them 1 by 1, then make sure you take a screenshot of the espionage report and save it, otherwise, as soon as you attack the 1st castle that you spied on, the espionage report will become unavailable. 

Here is the combat report, not a significant difference though:

30 soldiers killed as compared to 34 in previous attack.

Attack Overview:

Wave 1:

Wave 2:

So maybe sending a mix of soldiers does help?? Leave your comments in the comments section when you experiment the same.

This is attack on the 3rd DT at the exact same level:

In this attack, I used more tools to experiment if it saves more soldiers. Also please note that in each and every attack the total number of soldiers are decreasing.

Here are the results of the 3rd attack:

Total 20 soldiers lost

This is the overview

Wave 2 report:

Now here you need to ask yourself how many tools you want to sacrifice to save your soldiers.

Remember: If you send 20 mantlets with 1 ranged soldier, you can beat 100 ranged soldiers.

{If your enemy has 100 longbowmen on one flank, you could actually send one bowman, who is a very poor offensive unit to attack them with 20 normal mantlets (each reducing effectiveness by 5%) and he would kill all of them.

An example of this absolute attacker advantage is shown through these screenshots when one longbowman with 20 mantlets takes down 50 scouts of the kingsguard (ranged defenders) on the left flank }

Another important thing is Public Order (PO) 

We all know that Decorative Items (DO) increase PO, whereas, Population decreases (PO).

If you follow the above strategy and launch 2-3 attacks in every world everyday, you wont need any population to collect taxes as you get enough coins and rubies starting from BT and above.

So, you can infact demolish all your Dwellings (If you have town houses dont demolish them, as they have lesser negative affect on PO as compared to Dwellings.) and survive on the coins collected by these daily attacks. This is a risky business, if you are not a regular player, then you can end up losing a lot of your army because of shortage of food. Now once you demolish the Dwellings, you can build park in the castle and OPs which will increase the PO dramatically and thus increasing production of all the resources in that castle or OP.
