View Full Version : Takes forever to find something useful to raid

Is it like that for you guys, too? I mean, the are like 4 buildings that are worth raiding for me, stockpiles at lvl 6 or higher, oremines at lvl 3 or higher and oil rigs and oil refinery at lvl 3 or higher. It something like that, anyway.

Problem is, it can take more than 30min to spend my 12 points of stamina because it is so hard to find any of these buildings which haven't been raided already.
Is it like that for all of you guys, too?

Yep, try reducing or adding to your allies list to try and find your sweet spot.

I found Markets >7 also have a decent return when raided.

I don't know what level you are but i hardly ever raid anyone. I come across people with unprotected money more often than decent buildings to raid.

The problem is that there are so many noobs with rubbish income and no money who take up all the room on the rivals list, making it ridiculously hard to find a target.

Well, I'm lvl 40 with 317 allies.

A attack : 5080
A defense: 6383

How will I know weather to add or get rid of allies, I mean, what should I look for to see if I have found the sweetspot?

You just have to play around and see what you can see. I'm L124 Allies 498, everyone attacks L499 and above for valor as that is the max goal. I have a extreme harder time now finding any raiding targets. I have to look for an hour sometimes to even find a L1 Oil Rig or Space Center.

I would drop down to 50 allies or less, when i was level 40 there were loads of targets with decent money around that number of allies!

Woah, that was a lot of allies to give up. It better be worth it, it took quite some time to gather that many. Should a keep the highest lvl allies and get rid of the lower ones or doesn't that matter?

the level of your allies doesn't mean Jack, in fact just avoid allies at or around your own level I would say as it reduces your targets :)

I'm level 71 and recently reduced my allies from 350 to 17. It was painful to do as you say, it takes ages to add allies. However take it from me it was the ebst thing I ever did. I had stats of 12k A 16k D before and really struggles to find anyone to raid. Now I have stats of 3200 A and 3200 D and I'm stronger than 95% of my rivals list. I'm having fun.

As my good friend Kev would say (he reads these posts but never posts himself), drop your allies, come on in the water's lovely :)

If you're worried about dropping allies, post your code on the forum and wait a week or so to get some ally requests pending. Then if you don't like it you can re-add the allies.

I would agree, the best bang for the buck are valour missions so I hardly raid unless there is something really tasty sitting out in the open. Then of course I hit it up, but in terms of looking for something nope.

Thanks for the tips, guys. Much appreciated...

It does take a while to farm some cash from PvP - that's why my new favorite sweet spot is Admiral Eno. Yes it takes 19 hits - but at 2 to 5 million payout - its like haveing an extra level 15 cash building every day :).

The onlymdownside is the damn 175 exp that keeps pushing me towards shark infested waters. Maybe I'm an Orca and shouldn't be afraid of sharks :)

Damn "m" key on my I-Pad seems to come up instead of the space bar.
