Lol I'm more attack oriented
Heavy Attack wave:
I build 2/3 of attack cities like this.
Clean up wave:
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
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
