If you are making swords, then always rush. Swords are for
rushing only. By this you’ll also get to
know the unit your opponent is making. A pro player can take out about 15
swords in F11 – 3.00 and a normal does about 9 to 12. If you can’t make swords
that fast, then it means you need more practice.
WHEN YOU ARE
A) Against Swords:
Rush him before he rushes you. Even with your
first 3 swords and kill his citizens. This will definitely slow him down.
use ‘Ctrl+ Right click’ to go to his
base so that your swords also kill his swords if they r coming from the way to
kill u. Some players also set the gather point on the enemy base. It’s also a
If long game, you can also keep on making any other
unit like Pikemen, Crossbows, Persian cavs, or Knights etc. and attack together
Upgrade: 2 times
Hit Points, 1 time speed & 2 times attack
B) Against Cavalry Archers:
You must be rushing now too. During that rush,
kill citizens and stop him from making towers. Don’t go for killing cavs, Kill
In your swords civi, the best unit against cavs
in combat is Vikings. But stay away from towers because towers kill them easily.
If he has made walls, you can make Barbarians as
they can enter through trees and use them for killing citizens. They are also
not bad against cavs and can be upgraded to more speed for killing cavs by
Ballistas are the best against cavs. They can
kill many of them together.
Siege towers are also good to be used against
cavs. Make few Siege towers and increase their
HP, speed and arrow armor. When atacking enemy, send siege towers near
to cavs or enemy towers and keep moving them around them. By this trick , his
cavs and towers will keep on attaking your seige towers and not swords and you
will get a chance to destroy them. (Siege towers can also be sent by inserting
swords in them).
2 HP, 2 Speed, 1 attak….. or 2
HP, 1 Speed, 1 attak, 2 arrow armor
C) Against Knights, Pikemen, Persian
Stop making swords
because you can’t kill them easily. Better start making archers or cav archers
D) Against archers:
You can kill longbows easily. If you will rush him from the start, he can’t
win. But if he gets time to build many and almost double then your swords, then
you are in danger Almost
same cavalry archers strategy can be applied to longbows also.
Crossbows are slow, costly, and they have a bad reloading time. But if your
opponent gets time to build many crossbows, then it will be almost impossible
to kill them with swords. Their 1 arrow can kill 1 sword Keep rushing your opponent from the start. Don’t
let him make many Start making Cavalary Archers. They can kill
crossbows easily. But it would be difficult to kill longbows with the- Make ballistas.- Load into
siege towers and drop between crossbows. They get killed easily by swords like
killing citizens.Increase speed of swords to 2x.
