Your quest for the throne
Once you started the game you will be greeted by a series of initial quests. Each of these quests introduces you to new mechanics and core concepts of the game. The rewards for finishing all these quests are different units, income or other valuable items that will eventually help you to get a head start against your competitors.
Form alliances and dominate your rivals
Rather sooner than later you will hit a point in the game in which it will become significantly easier when you begin working together with other players. Forming mighty alliances or joining one is the key to success. Not only do alliances provide additional income but it’s also quite handy to have a legion of other players covering your back.
Scout first, slay later
Before you initiate an all-out war on your foes, it is highly recommended to send a batch of scouts ahead. Knowing the army composition of your enemy is absolutely crucial in determining counter-strategies or eventually even realizing that maybe some other time will be more suitable for an attack.
Aside from the sheer unit sizes it’s also a matter of having the appropriate commanders for your troops – those are often represented by some of the main characters from the series and can provide unite buffs to your army. Something that you should not underestimate.
Maintain a strong economy
Having a massive army is nice and all that but not being able to maintain it properly sure isn’t. Therefore we can’t stress enough how important it is to have a solid economy as the backbone of your military endeavors. Having enough coin and enough food at all times is what distinguishes a good from an excellent general.
