hi, I'm sorta new to the game... and there is something I don't get...

I'm have about 1300 Attack Specialist Soldiers... and I just lost to someone
who has 30 Soldiers!! how on earth? is there something I don't know?

And the same thing is when others attack me... I have again about 1300
Soldiers, and others with like 40 Soldiers kick my ass...

please explain it to me...

its not how many soldiers you have, its the comparison between Strike Action and Defensive action...simply put, they have better weapons than u

yes but 30 Soldiers against 1300?
he had 30 weapons and i have 8 Blackpowder Missiles...

so it's not like I'm weapon-less...

soldiers without any weapons are very weak ;) (same as in real life :p).
More detailed: a BPM makes a soldier 12,000 times stronger, and IS 10,000 times ;)

My maths still works out tho. 8*12,000 is 96,000, 10*10000 is 100,000

yes, but with 30 soldiers they might aswell have 30 BPM or IS ;)

recon them first, if you see their defence is higher then your strike action you will most likely lose.
Attacking players with a lower total fighting force will get you a verry crappy gold percentage btw ! , try to attack players who are bigger as you and you will be able to steal a lot more of their gold ( if you can beat them that is)

im rather new and i knew the weapon thing...i have about 140 people and guys with like 500 people keep losing since i bought some dragonskins......but you get more money from people who are larger than you? I thought it was just if they had a higher rank?

@prue3
the enemy could also have had better siege tech or fortification

@age-of-war
you get higher % of gold if you steal from ppl with larger army than you.
you can steal 50-99% gold of somebody who is bigger than you but under 50% if they are smaller than you. rank will not affect your ability to steal gold, only make sure they are 10k ranks within you or else your army will flee.
