I really don't understand the whole ally system. Why would you want a lot of friends? You just go up against people that have the same amount as you but you lose sooo many units every attack. I'd rather have like 4 friends and bring my 16 best units instead of 25 good units and 75 scouts haha I really don't get it....any thoughts?

You don't always go up against rivals with the same number of allies--you get to pick and choose from your rivals list. Sometimes you can choose rivals who have fewer allies and therefore can bring fewer units to the fight. In addition, don't just gwu blindly up against anyone you see. Check out their alliance defense and see how it stacks up against your alliance attack number. Generally, you don't want to attack someone who has an alliance defense close to your attack stat. Try for someone who has about 25% of your attack score. As for the casualties, funzio has said the PvP casualties are jacked up and they are working on a fix, so you may want to hold off on attacking until that roll it out.

Try the strategy you have in mind, and you'll soon be one of the many posters complaining about massive casualty loss. Just a guess, I'm at level 32 right now and it's annoying enough to see a Chinook get axed on a munitions factory bringing in 10k per hit... It's a numbers game, the general idea is toyou buy the insurance in the form of scouts, rangers, and light gunners, or if patient enough farming low level level units to protect your more expensive units.

But try your idea out, if your low enough in levels ya ain't got much to lose. I'm getting effing tired of losing 1-3 units per raid for nothing or attacking over and over and over people storing all their money in vaults and losing units left and right... Maybe ya got something there...
