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.…

Forge of Empires Fair Trade Ratios

In this quick article, Forge of Empires Tips will discuss Forge of Empires Fair Trade Ratios. This article is mostly for new players, but even if you’re an experienced forge of empires player, it’s never too bad to run over the basics again.  The video version of this transcript can be found here But first, What are Fair Trade Ratios? Like in every sport, there’s so called fair play. You can also apply this to Forge of Empires, when it comes to trading goods. In this case it’s called fair trade, meaning – all players stick to same ratios when trading goods. To produce goods it takes coins and supplies. And for each age there’s a certain cost. Up till the Late Middle Ages, the cost increases twice in each age, starting from Colonial age the cost increase is smaller and smaller. For example, the cost increase from the Late Middle Age to the Colonial age is by half, but from the Future era to Arctic future the cost increases only by 0.16 times. If we over complicate trading goods, we could discuss how goods affect building size, the population required, the unrefined good required; but this would make the game too complicated. The main goal is to have fun, so other factors involving goods production besides the cost are not taken into account. When you trade goods from one age to another you simply apply these ratios. For example, if you sell 100 LMA age goods, you can buy 75 colonial age goods. Fair Trade Calculators…

This article follows our other Great Buildings article in our series: 5 Methods to Level up Great Buildings Lets Recap, What are Great Buildings and What does a Forge of Empires Blueprint Do? Great Buildings are an essential component of Forge of Empires Gameplay – building them will provide powerful benefits to the player that decides to invest in them. But there are limitations –  each Age provides only two Great Buildings (with the exception of Arctic Future). Each building will provide its own unique bonus, graphic, but will require a certain amount of space to build. Contrasting conventional buildings, these require only coins/supplies, Great Buildings have additional requirements. These are goods and blueprints, and must be collected before the Great Building can be constructed. Once the Great Building’s requirements have been met and the foundation has been laid, it will be begin at level 0 and must be “leveled” to level 1 before the player starts to receive any benefit. For Great Buildings to gain levels, forge points must be invested into them. For each level gained, the inherent bonus of that Great Building increases as well as the rewards paid. Once level 10 is reached, the Great Building will no longer advance until a full set of blueprints are traded. At this point, a single level will be unlocked; this must be done…
