Good Habits / Bad Habits

Good Habits:

  • Using Wood carefully, if you cut one down notice it and save it the other time.
    1. Harvest
    2. Send wood manually to all huts. Huts-2 woods. FW hut-7 woods. Warrior hut-7 woods. thats what you need to send the last wood they take by themselves
    3. if you are building near a wood which braves can’t take, they’ll often raise their hands. What you need to do is send a pile of wood nearer than that wood(but not at the door they won’t take them)
  • Copy what Better players do.
  • Use Gradual upgrading, which is more efficient than Advanced upgrading.
  • Lay all hut plans down, send two braves per plan.
  • Expand, even after reaching 199 pop keep building.
  • After having decent pop and enough wood Build 2nd warrior and FW hut.
  • Check on your opponent and See what he is training. A good rule of thumb when it comes to troop is Always make more than the opponent.
  • Care about your warriors . I see people sending 3-4 warriors towards my base and my shaman stands there. They are 4 pop lost and lost mana to train them. What you should do is charge light. Train a couple more, get in a shaman fight if you kill his shaman send the warriors in his base(8 warriors do a lot of pop damage backed up with ur shaman). If he kills your shaman you have warrs to defend from opponents troop attack.
  • If your opponent has more warriors than you take your troops back and try to overpower him by adding braves and FWs
  • Being a trooper offers a lot advantages. First of all even if you get attacked and damaged pretty bad leaving you in any map with 20 braves and 30 warriors u still could win incase your opponent is a mana player. Just charge lights and kill enemy shaman and get your warriors in. Keep camping in his base and if possible bring FWs around his reincarnation. 30 warriors would go havoc on his population and even better if you could kill his shaman for a second time.
  • Don’t Let your shaman die! well you can’t decide that but u can be more careful. Never send ur shaman to kill 6 FWs without making some ghosts or swarms. best thing and manna friendly is to wait a bit for warriors and help them with your shaman.
  • Be careful in shaman fights. One thing many players do is walk backwards and let enemy follow you cast on the edge of your range and he walks in. Well rarely people will bite that, thats why now we do the go forward and backwards to get enemy spend lights and at the same time wait if he just for a second follows us and u cast it on the edge of your range. Well I modified that a bit and it works quite good for me, my way:
    -When enemy shaman walks towards you and you walk in a 90 degree(perpendicular to him) that way he is slowly coming into your range but at the same time he thinks you are a target, and you light on the edge.
  • Try to add troops in the shaman fight. which will stun opponent or will kill him while he is worried about your lights.
  • Don’t let your shaman die just to cast one EQ on opponents defense. charge quickly some Ghosts and swarms or bring some troops with you, and safely EQ opponents defense.
  • Always do One More dodge!
  • Don’t walk near water!. Super control your shaman with blast out of range if autopath is sending you near water. It is much better to walk a steep land up than to walk near water.
  • Use every tiny second to upgrade. When you kill enemy shaman, when he kills yours. Until your shaman reincarnates, until your shaman goes at the front of your defense.
  • Attack areas which aren’t defended well, use LB to get to those areas.
  • If you have good light skill be a trooper and charge lights. each time you get enemies shaman send your troops in his defense and if possible in his base. Even if u suck with lights you can be a trooper.
  • If enemy is in the better position try to get him attack you only from one side, which you defend with whatever you have and ghosts, till you can light your shaman, in other words camp till ur pop is better.
    •  e.g in NP they get in from the front and Damage your ally pretty bad, now the most stupid thing u can do is BD which will add your weakened ally another side to defend. best thing would be to defend the front until he is better.
  • If you are in a Better position and opponent is camping, side him and try to get him defend that side. Bring troops from the other side; Make a shaman ghosts and send them in each direction;  Backdoor him; in 2v2s double his ally. in concise form if someone is struggling he will have hard time to defend many areas thats why you should attack from as many sides as you possibly can.
  • Send braves to slow down your opponents shaman until your shaman reincarnates.
  • If your opponent can LB to an unprotected place of yours be the first to lb and build defense there.
  • Build towers in groups of two so they defend each other and attack at the same time.
  • Expand your Defense. First build the first towers that give u proper defense and later on add other towers, don’t cramp them, LB and build others. in groups of two. so EQs will damage less.
  • Repair your towers.
  • LB where enemy casts EQ, it softens the damage pretty good.
  • Put FWs in huts. they’ll often be a surprise to your opponent.
  • Make more than one layer of defense. One row of towers is one layer. Building another row of towers before the first one makes two layers. Building huts between the towers strengthens your defense.
  • Towers far from others are a idiotic decision, as the FW can be taken out with ghosts and the tower destroyed with one brave.
  • If your opponent EQs the front of your base and gets the first row of your huts, build Towers as another layers of defense there.
  • BE ACTIVE! HYPERACTIVEAlways be threatening attack your opponents defense even if all you have is swarm and ghosts(don’t go on stupid risks and dodge all the way). Make opponenst spend spells. if your ally wants to attack him, do so too even if you don’t have EQ prolly he focuses on you and your Ally can get easier in his base. Or you can get his shaman with light and freeway for your ally.

Thats all I had on the top of my mind. Bad habits are any deviations from what you just read.
