High five Duke!

Lol I'm more attack oriented

Heavy Attack wave:
8000 zerks
2250 guards
750 rams

I build 2/3 of attack cities like this.

Clean up wave:
11000 zerks
2250 guards

I have 2 of the first wave I showed u hit first to soften the troops and demolish the wall then the clean up waves hit and remove any left over troops :)

I have the 2250 guards just so I can kill scholars if I'm attacked from close range. In other words if I get attacked and my defense is too long to get there in time is simply withdraw all my troops and wait for the clearing waves to hit bring in the guards and kill the scholars

Defense cities:
5000 guards

I have personally done the all lancers and sents in my cities defense cities before they were useless in a real attack cause they got there so late plus I'm prolly going to be just dodging anyway lol and if I need to I can send some defense cities into battle

Someone told me that the lvl of you troops in a supporting city gets downgraded to the lvl of troops in that city?

As a note, you don't need more than 527 rams per city attack. That's the number of L1 rams it takes to bring a wall from 25 to 0. This doesn't change regardless of attacking or defending troops, since the rams are calculated first.

It seems like people use Guards over Knights for attacking?? Are you all serious?? Knights are much better for attacking.

I personally would never use the guardians, except for long distance defense. When comparing the guardians to the other troops on a attack per pop basis, Guardians lose in every category. Even if you try and say that Guards have a balanced defense, they take 4 pop. You could train 2 lancers and 2 sentries, and both infantry and mounted defense would be higher then guards..

The only effective benefit of a guardian is the speed, which helps if you need quick defense. Everything else, there are more effective troops to train.
