    Opposite Day

    
    Dear settlers,

    Throughout time and from the very beginning, you have shared your game knowledge with the others, you have helped your colleagues understand the game and have created guides on how to conquer your home island and play adventures in The Settlers Online.


    On this day, we'd like you to do the opposite: put your creativity to good use and tell us what's the worst way of playing the game. You can start by creating an infamous list:

    1. Leave your explorers at home, they never find what you want anyway...
    2. Always let your Arctic Iron Mines run out of ore... the depleted mine looks so much better!
    3. When reaching the enemy camp, don't attack. Instead, pretend that you were just passing by and observe how they start attacking your troops.



    What does your anti-guide look like?

    I always like the idea of loading my island full of the wonderful artifact provided to us by Roaring Bull Loots, Horseman Statues. Need to have lots of idols for the soon-to-be fodder to worship!

    1) do not waste sources on upgrades, they are not cost effective
    2) do not go on adventures. The loot never pay of the loses
    3) make as many soldiers from every free man
    4) donīt waste material on houses, they do not produce anything
    5) sell as much material as possible. Only money makes the wealth
    6) donīt bother with events, they are repeating again and again
    7) keep peace and humanism. No killing, even the bandits, they are humans too
    8) donīt waste your time in guilds, most of the people are sleeping or asking something
    9) place all the stuff you obtain on your island, its so empty

    Convert your entire military force into 'Heavy' units for Expeditions. Only attack Huge colonies, while ensuring you only select coal colonies. Oh, and be sure to set the cavalry units at the enemy soldier units, bow units at the enemy cavalry and lastly send your soldier units straight at the enemy bow units! Follow these general guidelines and your success will be stupendous. Enjoy!

    My top 10 advice to noobs:

    1. Buy resources with gems. Why wait to produce them?
    2. Guard the Mayor's house with your troops. It is a dangerous world out there.
    3. Be very careful whom you befriend. They might steal things from your island.
    4. Don't join a guild. They might steal things from your island. Besides, you can buy guild coins, when needed.
    5. Don't bother upgrading buildings. They take a long time to produce anything anyway.
    6. Watch out for blue or yellow text in chat. Colored text can be harmful to your eyes, so close the chat box.
    7. Forget about making stuff in the provision houses, barracks, bookbinder or mayor's house. They get in the way of chatting.
    8. Avoid adventures. You will lose precious troops that guard your Mayor. Besides, why send your troops to a far off island, when you have bread and brew in the Mayor's house?
    9. Be the first to get the most sought after event items. So what if you have to spend gems? If you bag it, you can brag it!
    10. Tell everyone about your wonderful real life. Too many people chat about the miserable weather, their miserable teams and their miserable lives -- it is deplorably depressing. Let us know about your vacation plans and which credit card you use to buy gems.

    ;P

    1 ignore your production chain, you always run out.
    2 just attack you'll win some time, no need to look up guides.
    3 trading ,always ask half of what any one else list and offer double for what you want.
    4 books no need for the generals to read, they will attack when sent any way.
    5 no need to send out geologist more then once or twice a week mines alway go empty.
    6 explorers only every few weeks they bring back the same old adventures and resources all the time , give them a good rest.

    If you have an Endless Copper Mine, be sure to use all of your Omniseeds to refill it. Gotta keep that Endless Copper Mine filled at all costs!

    1 Always send your generals to adventures with 0 troops.
    2 Buff only your own island, don't bother buffing friends islands. The buff last only half as long on your friends island.
    3 Don't ask for help in help tab, nobody will help you anyway.
    4 Never use rare buffs, keep them in your star menu.
    5 Stop all the production of your buildings, items take too long to make anyway
    6 Place your building as far as possible from the storage, settlers like to walk distance with items
