KoC: Starting & Strategies

First of all, post your URLs so we can click them to give you forces (the URL is at the bottom of the screen on your "Command Center").
You have $1,000 and 1 person to start with. Its kinda slow at the beginning. First, buy yourself a knife, and attack someone (preferably with only 1 troop and below you in rank) and collect cash. Once you get more cash buy more armor or a better weapon. Try to get everyone armed and you'll do better attacking.First of all, post your URLs so we can click them to give you forces (the URL is at the bottom of the screen on your "Command Center").

Best defensive strategy is to buy as much as you can and have NO money left over (you aren't worth attacking if you have no money). But eventually you'll need to buy yourself some defensive armor. The more the merrier.

And that's all I really have right now. Some things that I'm pretty sure about:
Attack specialists do better damage attacking, but can't defend (ditto with the defensive specialist).
The number of troops of your opponent doesn't mean as much as you think unless they have them all armed.
Some people horde money, have like 4 troops, but all of them have superior weapons and armor, so be careful (nothing like your 30 troops doing 405 damage and their 8 troops doing 1298 damage back), so having a spy or two may be worth your while once you get a week or two into the game.
You get turns and money every hour so you can check back a couple times a day, and if you are gone a long time, jump in and buy a buncha stuff to not leave yourself a target (which may be a good strategy for the 'east coasters'... wake up early, and attack all the west coasters who have been asleep a while and collecting money).

That's all I got, but mekka and baldass_newbie have been into this longer and can probably give you some better strategies.

I was into this ages ago, couldn't get anyone else to go in with me. Now you guys are all cavorting and prancing and sometimes trapsaing and galavanting, and I don't know if I should feel ahead of the times or feel the need to go kill you all.

You should prolly be kicking our asses. But hey, thats just my opinion.

I was into getting people to click and to build up... now I don't know if I can find myself there any more. I'd hate to have to sign up and look like I was a follower to you piddly little guys =)

Look on the brightside, if it was before the recent beta, all the teams were reset, so you woulda lost everything anyway.

oh, good to know. I should just bite the bullet (or the knife as it were) and hop on the bandwagon again.

Here's my link [kingsofchaos.com] : Yeah, buying a knife was a good first move. Now I'm attacking other weak forces like myself and trying to save up for that sword!

I hate conservatives. If you are a conservative, fuck off and die.

P.S.- my link is in my sig. give 'er a click.

one AWESOME thing I accidentally did was I signed up, didn't know what I was doing, so I didn't do anything for 3 days. Sure- I got n00b'd and people stole a lot of money from me. BUT I had 150 action turns. I kicked so much ass at once and leapfrogged these losers. It was rad!

Re:knives are teh suck (1)

FortKnox (169099) | more than 10 years ago | (#8308911)

Ditto, I didn't play for almost a week (its hard looking back and seeing people stole... 8k... 19k(!!!!)... 3k from me, but the 250 attack turns made up for it) ;-)

daoine (123140) | more than 10 years ago | (#8316224)

Heh. That's gonna happen to me in 2 weeks, 'cause I'll be on vacation.

So when I get back, I'm going to have a long list of enemies who need to be beaten down.

give someone your pw and have them spend the money each day on training or weapons. not having a large sum of gold will make you a less attractive target. then when you get back you'll still have all your turns, and your money will have been well invested.

also, I am constructing a small VB app that will read the uniqid from a text file, sub it into the link, auto read what number to click and click it (giving everyone on the list one recruit per person per day). You can then use the task scheduler on your windows machine** to run it every 24hrs automagically. Easier way to keep track of links than trying to remember to click every day. I should have it ready in a day or 2. Watch my journal for updates.

** I code in windows. Sorry. No windows no luck. I can discuss the psuedo-code with an accomplished linux programmer who can duplicate the same feat there.

mekkab (133181) | more than 10 years ago | (#8309872)

how are you reading the picture-words? Or is there something in the page source that makes it easy?

Personally, I don't think its too hard to click once per day. I mean, I'm checking it like every hour! I'm not gonna forget to click!

FK, what you need to do... (1)

WIAKywbfatw (307557) | more than 10 years ago | (#8310642)

Post a JE which has everybody's KOC links in once place. That way, people all can go to one place to help each other out.

Of course, it would be good if you provided a quick summary of what it's for and why people should go there once a day and clicked on everyone else's links.

Keep clicking... (1)
