HOW TO STOP PLUNDERERS FROM TAKIN’ YER STUFF

I believe in the "Keep your friends close and your enemies closer" approach. Some mateys like to take the peaceful approach. But if you attack and plunder neighbors every chance you get, when they do the same to you, you shouldn't get upset.

First of all, don't take it to heart like I used to when I first started playin’ Forge of Empires. I would jump outta me chair, rant and rave, and wish I could lock ‘em up in a cave. Then I realized that is so lame, after all this is just a game. But before givin’ up cause you’ve had enough, thar’s ways to stop a plunderer from takin’ your stuff.

Make ‘em frustrated by collectin’ yer supplies on time. This way they won’t get a dime.
If they’re attackin’ yer city just fer points, don’t get tense.
Use the tried and tested brave spearfighter defense.
Let ‘em know they have a GB (hope it’s a traz) you’d like to donate fps to.
Then send out a friend’s request which is always a nice thing to do.
When they accept yer friend’s request, you’ll finally be able to rest.
Yer friendship may yield you a traz all shiny and new, givin’ you troops that arr loyal too.​

I can sort of get that you should not be able to take personal command of the defenders, even if you happen to be online when a surprise attacker hits your town. But is there any way to set up standing orders? For example, "If there are more than two rogues among the invaders, move them to the BOTTOM of the priority list." I am sick and tired of fights where, if I could have focused on the one lone grenadier attacker first, I could mop up the rest of the seven rogues with my drummer boy!

If you aid the attacker’s city or donate to one of their Great Buildings ...

DO NOT ASSUME YOU ARE IMPORTANT
ENOUGH THAT THEY EVEN NOTICE ... !!!!

You should be proactive defending your city, and if you message an attacker, think hard, use humor, and see if there is anything you can do to stop attacks.

DON’T PLAY THE HELPLESS VICTIM CARD

We are Forging Empires here, not making daisy chains ... :D

ive had my share of being pounced numbering in the hundreds. it took me awhile to realize -as everyone told me, its just a game. i was taking it too personal. i have on numerous occassions sent message to the person to "reason" with them. some have accepted friendship, while others silenced me by ignoring my messages. but luckily ive not been pounced on no more than 2 times by same person. and as of recently, many pounced for quest points which i dont mind. once youve unlocked military tactics, all hell breaks loose..but thats the way it goes if you want to advance through the ages. i try study attacker's units..most of the units are made up of rogues. like 6 rogues and 2 other strong units. others have resorted to using a mix of trebs and cats. live and learn

The attacker always has the advantage because we humans use our brains to figure out strategy. Our defendin' armies arrr at the mercy of A.I. Let's hope all the devices in our world bein' controlled by A.I. arrr better programmed.

I've worked hard to increase my defense boost. I'm in Future with defense boosted at 1049% /34% and still getting picked off. How high do I need to go to shield myself? Is there a best combination for the defending army? I've got 2 rail guns, 2 hover tanks, 3 drive swarms and a champion. I'm also trying to gather info to help my guild mates put good defense strategies together! Thanks!

@Lark of the Clans im not sure how high as defence without attack can only go so far.

Do you have a AO? That should activate in defence. Also the next event has something that’ll help you (check it out on Beta if you don’t want to wait)
