    When can we stop pretending GBG is balanced?

    To get back on the topic of balancing GBG, I think one way to make checkerboarding (which seems to be the concern on many worlds since it locks out the guilds not in the checkerboard agreement) more difficult and promote strategies that require more guilds to get involved with the action is to...

    When can we stop pretending GBG is balanced?

    Well I have no more attack buildings to put in, so the next best thing to put in that space is ballista camps. But yes, I was trying to fast-fight at 35 attrition. Perhaps doing 1,000 fights a day also does the trick.

    When can we stop pretending GBG is balanced?

    I tried your method of just leveling a Traz, but even that's not enough. This GBG season starting with 31 Ballista barracks, a level 71 Traz, and 2.5k unattached ballista, I lost over a thousand unattached ballista in 5.5 days. If I didn't have barracks, I would be losing a lot more. If you...

    When can we stop pretending GBG is balanced?

    I'll have to agree with @Pericles the Lion here. It depends on what world you're in, but in Tuulech (US19), it is very easy to join a top GBG guild once you have a level 80 Arc. I joined my current guild after 3 months of playing, and we're strong enough to checkerboard the map 5+ times/day...

    Good Job Inno

    As somebody who helps in managing the guild treasury, anybody who produces more than 3k guild goods from city collection is a strong player.

    Feedback for update 1.222

    That is the "go to person's city so you can find something to plunder b/c you won a battle against your neighbor" button.

    Cultural Settlements and Farms

    Like diamond farms? Well if you want to turn them into efficient wishing well farms, you want to have as much space for wishing wells. Once you have the city ready to do GE4, you only need one GB to dump FPs into, which is usually a Zeus or a Blue Galaxy. Doing settlements sounds like a ton...

    The inevitable "Which GB next" question.....

    That is probably why your Arc progress has been so slow. It's cheaper to get your Arc at the lower levels through a 1.9 thread and then taking cheap p5s. Swapping takes a while especially if your members have different FP incomes. You could set up a non-guild powerleveling thread but that is...

    The inevitable "Which GB next" question.....

    Very possible in a generous guild. In an effort to get some new blood in their guild, one guild in Tuulech had some high Arcs boost up a member's Arcs from 8 to 80. The low-level Arc owner got his BPs by paying break-even cost on 5th place on a powerlevel. I got my Arc from 0 to 80 in 37 days...

    GVG is crap

    Sorry, I should have clarified. SAAB and SAM players can reliably fast fight against any DA. Other eras can fight too depending on what the DAs are.

    GVG is crap

    Not really true at all. SAM and SAAB players can fight and break sieges in AA, while anybody Iron Age and above can refill DAs in-between enemy sieges. My guild who is #1 on the AA map has a couple of Iron Age and EMA campers who assist us in AA action over there. Being in the higher eras just...

    GVG is crap

    I love my face of the ancient upgrades and gate of the sun god upgrades, especially since I don't have money to spend on events.

    [Question] Any advice on gaining guild members?

    If the 1.9 thread is too slow in-guild, set your members up with a cross-guild 1.9 thread.

    Chatoue frontenac is overpowerd

    Upper platinum can be very profitable in terms of FPs, especially if you're the big fish in the pond. I've heard plenty of stories of players moving from a top 3 GBG-strength guild to a guild that bounces between lower diamond and upper platinum, and they have gotten twice the fights they would...

    Chatoue frontenac is overpowerd

    CF greatly interferes with other people's games, although in less apparent ways. The number of level 50+ CFs in an era can greatly change the landscape of the most active goods traders. Goods in quantities that were unfathomable to obtain before a high level CF could be dumped into the guild...
