Still though. If any of our walls can be upgraded with food which usually i have maxed out at all times. Which people defend the least. And which is usually the larger of the 2 lootable resources in storage that would make them effectively cheaper
U say upgrading offense is 2ndary to upgrading defense. Then u say upgrading walls is decorative so gold/hr isnt that big of a deal. Yet defensive structures have crap hp. Their only as good as the walls u have. A lvl13 wall is like 20% more hp than a lvl11. And like 35% more hp than a lvl8 wall(going from memory here). So maxed out walls make u defense 35% stronger. Far from decorative. And if defense matters at all to u then max gold/hr is the only thing that matters. Because looooong after ur city is maxed out and ur blacksmith upgrades finished. Ur walls will still be upgrading. And each age increases the defensive gap between the havs(max walls) and the have nots(lvl8 guys that dont have the focus to grind it ou). So if u care about defense for alliance wars, weekend events, or if they stop the close app abuse. Then ur first priority should be maximum offense for maximum gold/hr.

Not to mention whats defense good for...preventing a % more resource being raided. Whats better. 5% less resource lost x 3 defense losses a day. Or 5% more offense power x 20 battles a day(or more for the hardcore guys)?

Basically you are right dbuk from 'agressive' point of view ))) but you may be missing one important thing for IA - building times. Maximizing your attack may take you let's say 2 months... It is very alike global age will appear till than when you'll have to pay or spend another 3 months for attack maxing out. All these 5 months you will have some low level defenses, etc sacraficing it all... to a stronger walls in the end result. I am able to build level 10 walls with no stress, looting 2m per training blessing at 1700 medals with just EA army. I'll be able to increase it with just a couple of IA upgrades and higher league. After that I am going to finish short to built defences and build all new buildings available for IA. At least this is my plan. This approach will give me better defence for long period and I could meet more affordable walls too, while my sacrafice on loot speed will be minimal. It's just another, more balanced way imo ;)

I get what ur saying. My offense and defense will take the same amount of time as ur offense and defense. For ease of math lets call it 100 days for fully maxed industrial. 50 days max offense 50 days max defense. Lets say both of us spend no money and at this stage of the game were 75 days into the game. The best option is to max out offense to lvl50. And defense to lvl25. Your approach is more..... 40 offense and 35 defense. My offense will be 10 levels higher than urs which means 5% more gold per attack. Ur approach is defense 10lvls higher 5% less gold lost to raids per defense. Except defense only happens 3x per day and offense happens 20+ per battle. It doesnt matter if global happens before i finish my defense. Or whether global comes out before u finishe ur mixed offense/defense approach. Well both be lvl75 when global comes out well just have shifter our progress from one thing to the other. As long as my offense is maxed out i dont care how much my defense lags. When u and i get to space age whatever fell behind can catch up later. Except when we both finish our last space age upgrade at the same time my walls will be higher level because i will have earned 5% more gold the entire time we played. Ur hope that walls will become cheaper wont change the fact that no matter what my walls will always be higher level.

Pretty good strategy but it seems to change up with every update. This wouldn't have worked as well when I started.
