7/21/2012: How to Fight | Advanced Art of War
Recently, I learned a few new lessons about fighting and I would like to impart some of my knowledge to you all.
1) Some Terms You Need to Know:
Unclear BH or Unsettled Battle
This is when, in a battle, the battle hero has not yet been identified. You can usually tell this by the relatively low amount of influence by the top player. Sooner or later, someone is bound to leap at the opportunity and add tons of damage to the battle.
Example of an unsettled battle. Notice that the battle is still early (20:45) and the damage by the top player for France isn't high enough yet (255k).
Settled BH or Settled Battle
This is when, in a battle, a potential battle hero has been identified. You can tell this usually by the amount of influence a player has placed in the battle, usually a very high amount, and by the differences between players. If two or more of the players in the top 5 rankings are very close to each other, then the BH has not been settled yet. Damage (influence) is still being done in the battle.
Example of a settled battle. The battle time, if I close the battle statistics window, is almost over. There is one defined BH (tikailic) with 800k influence, which is about the amount needed for a D3 battle hero. All the other players in the top 5 are not even close to beating that player.
How long does it take for a battle to become “settled?”
For how long it takes for a battle to become settled, it depends on the priority of the battle. Very high priority battles tend to become settled quickly while it can take up to an hour for low priority battles to become settled. You can tell the priority of a battle partly by the nations that are fighting. For example, Croatia vs. Serbia will have a higher priority in the eWorld than a battle, say Egypt vs. Saudi Arabia.
2) How to Fight
I divided this section into 3 stages because each of these stages requires a different aspect of fighting and uses progressively more resources.
Stage 1: Basic Fight (food and weapons)
When to use this fight:
-To complete daily orders
-To assist in an unsettled or settled battle.
Stage 2: Rockets
- To assist in a settled battle.
Stage 3: Energy Bars + Bazookas
-To assist in a settled, emergency battle.
I placed energy bars and bazookas on the third level because they are the only weapons which can be stored. All other weapons, to include rockets, have a limit. For food and weapons, the limit is your energy bar. For rockets, the limit is you can only build one per day. However, you can have a near-unlimited amount of energy bars and bazookas if you save them up.
Before you use your rockets or bazookas, check the battle to see if it is settled. Even if the battle seems close, if it is not settled, you can end up wasting your resources.
