  1. Last Active?

    A fairly new feature, when you click on a friend's name, is last active - less than 2, 2 - 8, or more than 7. What does this refer to? I try to clean the deadwood from my friend list every 2-3 months. I would check the list against the event history (kind of tedious) and dump folks the did...
  2. Healing units?

    Do you need a matching barracks to heal a military unit? I recently aged up and replaced all of my last age barracks with new ones. I have a boatload of previous age units, which I am using in the first couple of levels of GE. I generally replace any unit with two bars of damage before the...
  3. Fighting with lower age units

    I have been in the High Middle Ages for quite some time. I am thinking about aging up. I have a boatload of HMA troops. Will they be good for anything after I age up to LMA? I know that I will need to build LMA barracks asap. I have Arc 67, Traz 26, CdM 35, Zeus 29, CoA 29, and TA 17.
  4. Need more rogues

    I think I will keep my two hottest units (grenadier and musketeer) and dump the other barracks. When the balance gets low on the other units, from occasional use, I can swap barracks to rebuild a balance.
  5. Need more rogues

    I am in CA. Have a level 17 Traz, 2 Rogue's dens, 2 Ranger buildings, and 1 each of the other military barracks. I do not seem to get many rogues in my daily Traz production. Right now I have only 58 rogues and over 200 of most others. Any way to tweak this?

  7. Mughal Empire?

    Any hot tips for a strategy on this new settlement?
  8. When to age up?

    I have been hanging out in HMA for some time now. GB's are coming along: CoA, Zeus & CdM are all over 20, ToR 12, Traz 20, LoA 17, TA 14, and Arc 29. I finish GE every week, fighting 1-3 and negotiating level 4. Some GvG. I have enough fp's ratholed to zip through LMA tech tree. I know...
  9. Terrace Farm?

    How useful is the terrace farm?
  10. Terracotta army vs vineyard?

    Check my math! That is 75 spaces for the vineyard with 6 fields. That sale is getting closer.
  11. Terracotta army vs vineyard?

    For space, the army wins, hands down. 24 spaces give about a 20 boost (att & def) at level 10. A lvl 7 vineyard, with 2 cypress, 2 lavender & 2 olive takes 45 spaces to yield a 16 boost, with 10 fps, a 22% supply boost and a few other goodies. Supplies are not much of an issue at this point...
  12. Terracotta army vs vineyard?

    Trying to decide between building a terracotta vineyard (w/ 4 or 5 fields) and a terracotta army. Any thoughts?
  13. Who is leveling up my GBs?

    I recently logged on and found 3 of my GBs leveled up. I am not mad about this, but curious. I thought it was good manners to ask before leveling up someone's GB, unless otherwise stated. How can I figure out who my benefactor was?
  14. Diamond Expansions?

    When is a reasonable time to buy city expansions with diamonds? Do they get more expensive as time goes by? I have been very frugal with diamonds to date (saved up 670), but as I get stronger I have been accruing a few more in GE. I do not want to age up from CA until I get my fighting...
  15. Winter Bakery

    Can I build 2 gingerbread bakeries? Is it a good plan?
