Forge of Empires Rogue Guide: How to Use Rogues Most Effectively

At Forge of Empires Tips; we are always on the lookout for the military units that can advance our military strategy and take our empire to the next level; enter the Rogue. Here, we have written a Forge of Empires Rogue guide, so you can get the most from what this potentially powerful unit has to offer… Rogues are a unique fighting unit. For a start, you can only train Rogue units if you own and have built the coveted Rogue hideout. This is only available through the Inno contest and through special events. So if you are a new beginner to Forge of Empires – this guide is not for you. Instead, we suggest you look HERE. The Rogue – a Quick Primer: The Rogue is unique because it doesn’t remain a Rogue for long. When you enter a battle, the first enemy hit your Rogue takes transforms it into one of your existing live units. This is where you need to be careful – if you have no other units (other than Rogues), then the Rogue is destroyed/killed/obliterated in an instant and on this first hit. This can happen even if you take a hit from the lowest and weakest unit, i.e. a Spearman.  Remember this! But we will discuss Rogue strategies in more detail later in the artcle. Rogue Hideouts For those of you who are reading this and have no Rogue Hideouts, the first thing you are going to need to do is obtain some. Notice…

The Ultimate Forge of Empires Army – The Battle Edition

In the quest to forge our empire, we must fight! Forge of Empires Battles are an intrinsic feature of the game, and our military strategy and army is imperative to our success. We are presented with a choice; to use our units to attack other players, or to conquer provinces on the Continent Map. Before we can enter battle, we first need to establish our units which are placed into slots in our Military Buildings. It is through Army Management that we can manage our units; specifically, our Attacking Army and Defending Army. Forge of Empires Tips has thus created this Forge of Empires Army Guide; to help you to not only be fully ready for battle, but to win as many battles as possible! Forge of Empires Army Battle Strategies; Battle Preparation: Artillery units Artillery units are incredibly powerful when used in numbers but should only be deployed after we consider the enemy troops in which we face. For example, if the enemy is to set up with 1-3 heavy units, we can effectively use 3-4 artillery units (of the previous or same age) to defeat this enemy set up. As artillery units are effective at defeating heavy units, this sets us up nicely for victory as it becomes extremely easy for the rest of our other troops to win the battle. We also recommended that 2-3 Artillery units are deployed when facing an army that consists of 0-1 heavy units and 1-4 total artillery, ranged, or fast units.…
