View Full Version : Playing with a friend

I was thinking about possibilities of how to work together through alliances. Say I joined with a friend, and together we decided that I would focus on trade and economics, while he focused on building a vast army. Would I be able to give him money to build, train, recruit? I'm not saying I wouldn't have a small army for defensive purposes. But I wouldn't build a huge army to send out and attack other cities. Or do you think it would be better to manage all areas at the same time. If anyone could lend some thought to this that would be great.

I think the best would be you both building and focusing on army, economy etc. I'm not sure how aid is going to work nor do i believe i could talk about it if i did. but i think it would be best for larger scale pvp etc for you to have your own army. i could see some alliances making requirements around research, armies, city size etc.

Yeah I'd say don't fixate on one aspect, will inevitably lead to problems in the areas you leave undeveloped. You wouldn't want to have to spend all that economy of yours paying tributes ae.
