But if you really wanna be the best Emperor? Be the all mighty one among all of your neighbors and friends. Then by all means, read on. And whatever happens, you’ll have more to gain as Knowledge is Power.

To Carry Out a Successful Attack, You Must Have :

1. A Massive Army of Troops, Fleet of Ships and Scores of Planes.

To recruit these soldiers, artilleries, tanks, battleships, carrier ships, gunboats, airships, bomber planes and fighter planes, you need a mixed combinations of resources of coins, oil, wood and different ores of gold, iron, copper, aluminum and uranium. And to have a continuous supply of these resources, you have to defend the buildings that produces them.

Of course, you can always use additional energy to harvest invaded building. But c’mon, why spend more energy when you don’t have to?

Eventhough, invasion is encourage in every empire as fighting off invading forces becomes a source of additional supply of coins, oil, wood and ores you don’t produce. But the trick to remember here is this : You must repel invaders in your own terms. You must plan where and when they can attack.

Why do you have to defend your farms, oil wells, lumber mills and ore mines? So that, you can harvest these building whenever you need them.


2. Max Out All Research Lab Upgrades for Superior Army Troops, Navy Ships and Combat Air Force Planes.

Research Lab Materials are easy to get with the help of requesting Material Links from this post : Empires and Allies: Request Unlimited Free Gift Links for Research Lab Upgrades. But for each upgrade of any military units for land, air and sea, you need coins and lots of oil. Which points back to : Defend your buildings that produce these coins and oil.


3. Spend Your Energy where it matters most.

Is it better to harvest first? Or attack first?

Well, it depends. If you have a stock of military units and you can come back to play again in about four hours, then it’s better to attack first. Invade your neighbors or help repel invading forces from your neighbors empire. Either way, you’ll get some resources of some coins, ores, oil and wood.

But if you don’t have army soldiers, cannons and tanks in stock or hidden somewhere to fight for you, then better harvest first to rebuild your army troops pronto. When you harvest, you’ll know exactly what you’ll get. So, if you need oil, just harvest your oil wells. And you’ll be back on track. Ready to attack. Ready for another invasion.

Now, imagine if your oil producing buildings are invaded. And you have no coins, no army or navy or air force to repel the invaders. So, you’re only option is to harvest… Well, that’s a total waste of energy, don’t you think!

Empire’s Ultimate Economic Defense Layout for Resource Buildings

“Roads? Where we’re going, we don’t need roads.” And that’s a very good advice for this highly successful Facebook Combat Strategy Game. Always remember, Empires and Allies is not Cityville.

In Cityville, you build a city for profits and beauty. In Empires, you build a city to amass a large army, flood every inch and square of water with decorated ships and defend the skies with clouds of planes. Build an Empire to support all your military units. And to have a well OILED Army, Navy and Air Force producing Empire, all you have to do is defend it against invaders. We don’t need roads.

So, how are you gonna defend your Mighty Empire?

Well, it’s simple. Line up your Resource Buildings two by two in a horizontal or vertical rows where one type of resource building is four squares apart from the same type of building. Then position your army units two squares apart along both sides of the row of buildings. Click and see the City Empire Layout above for a clearer picture.

But how’s that gonna help you? By splitting or not lumping similar buildings together, would make harvesting take a longer time to do? And not make your playing life easier! So, why arrange 2×2 buildings in 2 rows where one type of Resource Building is 4 squares apart or two 2×2 buildings apart from the same type?

Prevent Monopoly.

If you run out of energy, armies, ships and planes or for whatever reasons, you can’t repel invading forces out of your empire. You must still have to power to wait it out (1 replenished energy for visiting neighbors or waiting 5 minutes), regroup and comeback with a vengeance!

But how can you regroup and rebuild your army if the invaders control all of your OIL? C’mon, you really have to defend your resources!

But how to you defend your entire Empire Strategically?

To protect your precious resources, have your Army Troops watch over these rows of buildings 27/7. Place an Army Unit on the first building and the next one 2 squares away until the end of the row. The trick for this is alternating the type of Army unit as you place them one by one along the row of buildings.

So, if you place a Soldier on the first building, 2 squares away from him place a Cannon. Then another 2 squares, position a Tank. In the next position, another Soldier. Then another Cannon. Then another Tank. Soldier, Cannon, Tank. Or what I call “S.C.T. Positioning.” Or S.A.T Positioning, if you prefer to be technical about it and call the Cannons as Artilleries icon biggrin Empires and Allies Layout: Build the Ultimate City Empire

By positioning your Army Troops this way, your invaders would have to fight 5 Army Units of assorted types. Two Tanks, Two Cannons or Artilleries and One Soldier is the best combination you can get to defend your Empire. Invaders may also encounter Two Tanks and Three Cannons Defenders or other two types combinations when you use this method of Army positioning, which technically are still good combination of Defenders. But as long as you don’t have all tanks or all cannons or all soldiers as defenders, you have a good chance to win and ward off invaders from your Building Resources.

What’s more to say : “Best of luck, Commander.”

Of course, this can be considered the best city layout to defend your Empire, but not exactly foolproof that no neighbors will ever successfully invade you. This layout’s objective is to discourage most neighboring Empires to attack and invade your Building Resources Everyday.

Empires and Allies is all about Strategy, Attacking and War. You’ll get more experience points, ores, gold, wood and coins by attacking. Come to think about it, repel and invade are just two forms of attacking. If you choose to be an Ally, REPEL invaders from your neighbors’ Empires. If you wanna be an Emperor or Conqueror, INVADE your neighbors’ Empires. It’s just a matter of labelling.

Hopefully, in the future, Empires and Allies would be something like Mafia Wars. Or have the ability to call out wars to conquer certain Empires where being Allies means so much more than just a label.

So, until then, build and defend your Empire to become the ultimate Emperor! If you want more tips? Read the Empire and Allies Secrets Guide.
