So:

I thought it would be a great idea to raid the Free Land and get tons of acreage. This seemed great. I had the most land and my net worth was skyrocketing. However, because I had the most unguarded land, I became an easy target, and as my buildings were taken too, my production is down. This makes sense. My question is, what is the right balance between having a enough land for solid production, and not being a target?

You'll almost always be a target. Holding into land and slowly getting bigger typically doesn't work out.

The basic gist of most strats is to grab as much land as possible in your first 50 or so turns and then generate the crap out of as much resources as possible, knowing full well you'll lose the land later, but still keep everything you made during that time.

There's a lot of ways to optimize a run, so if yiu're like me you'll eventually build up a massive collection of equations and resource optimization calculations to get the most out of every turn, lmao

 but overall don't worry about land, it comes and goes and that's fine for your growth

Well, I'd say spend more than 50 turns grabbing land. If you're running a troop-producing strat, you want to be grabbing land for all but your last 100 turns basically, as you use them to heal back up to 100% health.

  • Uiblis: you just kind of fritter away turns until someone teaches you some basic strategies, but I want that to lead to more interactive, emergent gameplay

  • JesterAverageJoe: I know this has been something a number of very intelligent, & exceedingly perceptive developers have been trying to figure out for years. Makes me wish there wasn't so much bad blood between the different communities & circles, so that maybe a mature discussion could be shared~

  • windhound: One of the coolest thing about RWL in the beginning was there was no meta.

  • windhound: Everyone was sorta flailing around, so it didn't take much to be average at the game when most everyone was terrible at it.

  • windhound: Now it's basically like joining a CS or Halo server that's been up for years, those left playing have super optimized strats and it's tougher to just jump in.

  • JesterAverageJoe: in a way, I feel like one of the only ways to marry the Prom functions w/ mobile interfaces would be to have some 3rd party/intermediary java program... Certainly not ideal where entry is concerned~

  • Uiblis: never liked the ui, it was messy af and didnt distill the important info out
    March 31, 2021, 09:22:55 PM
  • Uiblis: been writing a lot of rust recently so might give that a shot for the backend
    March 31, 2021, 09:23:23 PM
  • Uiblis: either way theres 0 chance i use any existing code
