I would suggest making it more visually attractive to read. It's one big wall of text right now.
I would like to note, with Architecture you can save boatloads of resources in the long run, which with the first city is very useful.Next build to academy level 10. Research Horsemen. These are good against archers, use them to conquer farm number six. The other researches in this section are useless.
My standard Academy research setup does not allow for it to be researched. This early in the game I don't really like having to use CPs to unresearch things, especially if I'm take a city that has a terrible academy and I have to reset the whole thing.I would like to note, with Architecture you can save boatloads of resources in the long run, which with the first city is very useful.
Unfortunately it's use completely disappears once you finish building your city, unless you're willing you can use a CP to un-research it. Odds are more than likely that you won't need to, but I'm not too familiar with final researches for 2.0, so I can't say.
Anyways, with Architecture all the buildings, most notably academy, cave, and harbor are cheaper, so you'll have more resources for training troops
Gold helps a lot, but you always will have the limit of the resources production. You can accelerate the grow of your city with gold, but when you finish to build, if you didnt have enough resources, you cant follow.any advice on how to do this without a premium account ... or is it no gold no chance to win ? if that is the case not a free game now is it!
