Can someone give me some advise.. I keep getting what you call it "farmed" and I can't save gold.. I can't stay OL for a very long time.. and I don't have an alliance to ask for help nor do I have friends who play.. I'm wondering what will you do if this happens to you?

Why don't you join an Alliance?

some alliances are big but there still are small alliances out there who can give you all the help you need.

I tried to look you up in KoC to see what your account's like, but I can't find your name. No worries though - there are a couple of things you can do. You won't stop all attacks on you, but most of them can be stopped by keeping your Total Fighting Force as small as possible. If your TFF is (eg) 50, anyone with a TFF over 50 won't get much gold from you if they hit you. Most people know that too, so they'll see your smaller army size and pass you by. The other thing you can do is hide your gold. Buy some Sentry tools and train some of your soldiers to Sentry as well, so that they hold the tools. Those who are scanning the Attack pages will see ???, not your gold, and will most probably look for a more visible gold hit. These are the basics, only.

If you've got the same person coming back to you time and time again, write to him/her and politely ask him/her to stop until you get a chance to build up a little. You'll find most will agree to stop - even if they say no, it's still worth a try.

See how you go on with that for now, and good luck.

Most alliances have forums and chat rooms, so if you have a request then you will get a response soon.

I agree with lin-tse.Yesterday,i in the same situation as you did.
Those opponent is far away lower convert rating than i have.They all attacked because my name post in IRIS.I lost 5mil because of the farming,another 3 mil to train down 1k soldiers to convert soldiers.I can easily sabb them weapons if i want,but i didnt.I did like what lin-tse been told,negotiate with them in the polite way.The problem seen solve,and i dont have to online in every 3 hours just to spend money.

Build up sentry + defense. It might take a while to get to the point where you can keep it more, but that would be a good start... With what you are able to keep you should be able to improve it more... And it all repeats ;)

And yes, small tff is good, if you want something more extreme you could try training down to even 0 units, though if you do so you probably will still get attacked a lot (and possibly more) At least you'd get to keep more of your gold ;)

This age is still new, so as lin-tse mentioned above, train down your soldiers, so the total of defensive and untrained soldiers are lower than your attacker. If your attacker has more attack soldier than your defensive and untrain soldiers, they won't maximize their pillage.

If you value your TBG (turn based gold), don't train down your TFF (total fighting force) to covert operatives. The reason is each TFF soldier yields 28 TBG and a covert yields 15 TBG (for humans add 20%). I choose Humans for this age and atm most of my soldiers are attack specialists. Only a small percentage represents my defensive soldiers. The benefits are, I would suffer less casualty and my gold stolen probability rate is lower.

Also, don't try to save up your gold - buy knives to save up. I know you lose 25% when you come to sell but it is better than losing all of it and it is how most of us save for upgrades etc.

Yes, I agree but as what Mive mentioned above, he doesn't have the luxury of being online for a very long time. So the solution proposed is for him to minimize the risk of losing more gold than what he had so far.

It is a two part solution.. when you join an alliance, you don't have to join the head guy, but a strong officer in that alliance who has only 20 or so officers himself.
the other part is spend your gold as often as possible, takes only 5 minutes each time, but every three or four hours.. buy the best defence tool each time, and spend the rest on knives and sticks.. when you get enough knives and sticks sell them and buy fortification upgrades.. but keep buying defence stuff.. eventually you will be able to defend against most attacks. getting a few sentries and tools will help as people won't see your gold as much either.. good luck
