- Defending yourself:
Something that many players want to learn how to do is how to adequately defend themselves. Here is the how to on defending yourself:
Hint: Looking weak. Don’t look like a target till you are strong enough to defeat your enemies. Keep your town hall below lvl 7 and upgrade everything else.
Traps are only one time use
Machinery: this tech requires a lvl 9 academy. It allows your traps to have a higher survival rate, important to have traps actually be useful.
Note: Traps are also known as “fortified units”. It is sometimes difficult to tell what the game designers meant by certain phrases.
Another good way to defend is through exploitation of armies of archers and swords. These units are the best defenders and must be employed as such. But in all likelihood, you will lose battles in Evony. When attacking, you only lose honor. But when defending, you lose something much more important. Loyalty.
Opening the gates: Go to your rally point and select open the gates. This will send your army to fight the opposing ones. It may be advisable to not open the gates, in case of a larger attack, but it is up to the player’s judgment.
