Over the last couple of days I wasn’t much of a threat to my neighbors. Expending and conquering was not on my mind, but rather securing my existing territory. As I had to rebuild my army, I was taking up a position of all-round defence. Despite looking idle from the outside, there was a lot going on in my city. Busy as ants, my people were running around to finish all their tasks.
In the northern area of my city, I erected more advanced houses to welcome additional people to my city. Those new hands were desperately needed in my production buildings in the south. The southern part of my city starts to turn more and more into an industrial area. So far I am only producing three rare resources, but with a high efficiency. Those resources I use on the markets to get the goods I need. Next to the production buildings, my military units are getting trained and hardened for battle. Now my army consists of strong soldiers, which easily overpower my opponents’ units. Additionally they are supported by long range slingers, but very soon archers will replace them on the battlefield, further evolving my troops. So, conquering new territories can start right here, right now.
