    When you block- i use 6 or 7 of one type of heavy forces and a single one of another. If the first group dies off, the blocking attack resets to send in the last unit. This can save your main force from being intercepted. It simply prolongs the blocking attack giving you a bit more safety.

    Oh that, yea. You can milk some crazy time with that.

    For your entertainment, compare 1/1/1 heavy units to 1/1/1 attack units. Your welcome lol

    How do you control not going beyond Tier 1?

    Easiest way would be cherry picking your colonies, there are very easy to easy ones, average and slap in the face ones, depending which ones you roll, you simply cancel it out right before even sending troops etc, it is then counted as a forfeit (not even a loss if you want to compete in the meaningless rankings) which will dock you 1 Strenght Point (or 2 or 3 depending which Tier you attacked) as a result.

    With all the funky algorithms happening, I had 0 effort staying in Tier 1 with my 3 Tavern Explorers only, didn't really want to invest any more explorers for that stuff anyway since they have much more value than go on a cooldown for, well, nothing I guess.

    Once you got to 10 points, it will make you go to T2, at which point you can cancel the expedition and lose 2 points, bringing you back to T1 with 8 points.


    My current advice, provided resources are plentiful and not really an investment of any greater extent, is to go T3 and farm XP to level up the castle. With 200 pop/level it's a nice incentive.

    Since once you're in Tier 3 you can accumulate 35 of 30 strength points (IKR?), it's possible to begin cherry picking a little bit again and getting max XP for the least losses.
    The truth will set you free. But first it will make you uncomfortable.
