How do you increase your attack/defence numbers? (Closed)
How do you increase your attack/defence numbers? I have almost 300 alliances and everyone I'm battling against has way higher numbers than I do. What is the best way to up those numbers? Is there a certain unit to buy? Thanks 812-590-770

Brian. Alliances alone is not the key to boost your attack / defense numbers. Think of Modern War as a militarized version of Parker Brothers game of MONOPOLY. You have revenue assets, defense assets, and offensive assets and these classes of properties need to be acquired in order. That is, acquire as a priority, your revenue stream. The next, AS you acquire money making assets, then you must protect them with defensive structures, such as towers, bunkers, etc, taking note how you place defensive structures around the revenue buildings to provide protection coverage. Revenue structures do not add or subtract from attack / defense numbers, as they are the means by which you acquire attack or defense units. Note as well, unit structures do not add to your attack / defense numbers directly. All these structures do is to allow you to get personal and weaponry with greater power as you level up. As you acquire defense structures, your alliance defense will build. Key is to build your defense. In military strategy over the centuries of warfare, a generalized rule of thumb has emerged. I coin that strategy in my own words as the "3 vs 1". If 2 armies are equally equipped in weaponry, then to overcome an opponent, you must have a numerical advantage in manpower to that of being 3 vs 1. This means, that if you are attacking in an offensive mode, your army must overwhelm the defender by that ratio. Think of it like this, to overcome 1 unarmed, you need 3 people to do the attack if none of the attackers have no weapons. Looked at another way, 1 man can keep at bay 3 men, if all are in possession of an equal type of weapons, or no weapons at all. What type of units should you buy? That would depend on at what level you are at. At lower levels, then light gunners and scouts do fine. BUT, as you level up, then the lower attack / defense numbers will not help you. As a rule of thumb you should always choose units that have a higher attack / defense score. You should make it a priority, to acquire units that can only be purchased with "valor points". These units have a higher attack-defense scoring than units that are acquired by your revenue producing properties. If you buy into the game for the GOLD, then acquire units that are available. GOLD people and equipment, will overcome units acquired by "valor points" as a general rule, and they are very hard to kill or destroy. I discovered that when I was in a person to person campaign. I out classed my opponent in every catagory except in units that were acquired by valor points, and yet, he lost little or no assets, which I was stunned. After 4 days of slugging it out with my opponent, he realized that I might have the upper hand since my revenue per hour was almost 3 times greater than his and while I was hemmoraging manpower and equipment assets, I at least had the revenue stream to endure the loss. My opponent easily could keep up with me, but at some point in the game, I was not the only gamer inflicting damage by means of attack and raids. So while we were slugging it out, others would jump in to attack and raid. Come and visit my base and check out my stats. My MW number is: 743-982-286. Good Luck & Good Hunting.

Twelve hours after making the above post, I decide to implement a strategy of consolidation. That is, i sold all my unit and revenue structures to make a 1 big push for a core of high revenue producing buildings. At level 68, no doubt I will be attacked with a greater degree of frequency in which until I reacquire the core unit buildings, I will suffer loss, being unable to replace units for defense. Since I have cash protection of the vault at 5 million, I should not lose money from being attacked. Stay tuned, to see how well this consolidation works. Good luck and good hunting.

Answer from: lj
1st thing, cut about 250 allies. Making allies is easy. Just look up numbers on the computer. You have to have units for your allies. 4 units per ally to be exact. So 50 allies means you need 200 units. You will bring your best allies to battle rather offense out defense. You bring your best offense in attack and best defensive in defense. Infantry units are cheap and a quick boost buy will die quickly. Air and ground are a little more expensive with a medium casualty rate. And sea are the most expensive and strongest with the lowest casualty rate. The question you have to ask yourself is "how much do you want to spend." Then work on money buildings. Lots of them. Buy defensive units to hold your money secure though. And defensive buildings are borderline worthless. They take up too much room and you could buy something like a military ambulance for $85000 with a defense of 18. Good luck.

Look buddy I just added as many ppl to my alliance as I could and did as many objectives to defeat ppl with so many allies etc. when I would acquire valor points I bought as many more powerful units as I could and I went from around 2500 to well over 30,000.

I Thought that the explanations was through, but if anyone wants hints become britian and then upgrade your water protection and unit defense builiding ea. the Composites Factory and start off buying engineers then the military ambulances then just keep going up on the Sea Units although Don't buy more than 100 of any type of unit! just wastes money even if you have the allies

Answer from: TheDude
If you add about 5k allies theyre are going to be probably 5-6 people with the same number of allies as you when you do this, its harder to be attacked because theres only 5 or 6 people on your list.
Answer from: daniel
You can add 5,000 allies but thats not what you use or paired up with. Your max allies is Levelx5 So if are level 20. you can use a max ally amount of 20x5= 100 allies. For example, i am level 93 and have 700 allies in my profile, but i get matched with people with 372 allies
