Im currently at lvl 303. Joined the space age a month ago. Now in the many years ive been playing here, ive rarely done the ww thing. But now im looking to get into it but i am terrible at it. My attacks get wiped out with between 1-3 stars gained against recommended targets.

Whats a good build for an efficient ww army?

Quite few things, I'm sure plenty of players with good knowledge will be happy to give tips.

The one thing I can tell you straight off is this, recommended target rarely tends to be the right target. As in, do not choose your targets based on which base the game recommends, that's inaccurate for a number of reasons.

When choosing a target, you'd need to know what your Alliance's plan for that specific war is - sometimes simply getting all stars is regarded as sufficient but, as seems the case in most wars nowadays, you'd need to choose a target based on how fast you can 5 star it, as wars seem, generally speaking, about fast times now.

Heres how my alliance works. Theres roughly 15 of us. Im am the third strongest. #1 attacks either #1 or #2 fir first battle. Then their choice of anybody else. #2 attacks either #3 or #4 for first battle then their choice of anybody else. Im #3 and my duties are to attack either #4 or #5 for first battle. I typically stick to attacking my #4 and #5. One of them is almost always a recommended target.

Thing is i just cant get a clean win.

Ive seen battles where lower level and aged cities get 5 stars. My city usually gets put up against lower age cities with up to 30 levels lower than me and up to the same levels. And my attacks get decimated.

Im trying to find a good ww strategy and i suck at ww. Lol

1. Choose a composition that you know how to play and that is really effective.

2. Choose a good combination of troop tactics to help you in the attack.

3. Request for the alliance troops that you understand fit best with your attack composition or strategy

4. Defining is to form the most suitable coalitions in relation to your attack composition

5. Analyze the opposing base before attacking and define your strategy, always trying to keep your troops alive by taking out buildings that do you the most damage

6. Take the time to build a decent set of artifacts in the museum to help your attack

7. Level doesn't mean much to attackers. It makes more sense for defenders. Look for slightly weaker opponents to train and pick up the tricks

8. Watch replays of your allies' and opponents' attacks to analyze how they play to get more tips for your strategy

9. Keep in communication with your alliance leaders. Maybe they can help you with tips or setting better targets according to your performance

10. Keep going to wars. They are fun and more challenging

Step number 8 is money.

Your alliance is doing this poorly. For example, it doesn't account for (a) war coalitions (b) attack ability (c) the opponent. Since your alliance wants to play it this way, be sure to choose offensive coalitions to help... especially as you get started. American is the most important so keep upgrading it.

Now, tell us what sort of troop composition you use and if you have a museum; and ideally your planes (the ones you use) are maxed.

The easiest attack strategy to master is the classic Commando attack; which means something like 10-12 commandos, and the rest bazookas. Also 8 fighters. War tactics are 1 or 2 decoy, a protect, and the rest Sabotage (maybe one assault rally). Search the internet for additional details, such as this old guide.
Another is to use all heavy tanks with either 8 fighters or 2 transport 2 fighters.

One key to attack is reducing the number of troops used. So, say all Heavy Tanks, or all commandos+bazookas; or a new trend is all mortar+cannon. This in addition to having a decent museum that mostly deals with air power.

I just entered the space age with a fully updated cold war city. All my planes are mk6.

I do very well in alliance leaderboards. Typically i place between first and tenth. As long as no player is cheating then i place top three. My alliance top ten, mostly off my back. My “looter army” comprises of 106 infantry. 8 commandos. Two mk6 fighters. Two mk6 transports. I would target clans that are up to 50 lvl lower than me but one age ahead of me. It brings me great success and our alliance leaderboards gain a lot of speed ups as a result. Training of this army is cheap and fast. It results in being able to fight many battles per day. But this is an army thats built for mp use only and fairs poorly in ww.

I will try your commando/zook/fighter strat.

How does one kill generals off quickly?

Keep updating those Transport; offense is priority #1. So, your Transport, Fighters, Heavy Tanks, and Commandos. The Space Age library is epic; all but one Library book is great. As for Generals, the guide talks about it; they will crawl towards your silo/defender bait where all your generals and donated heavy tanks reside to destroy them. As for Space Age upgrade priorities, see this guide for a list.

I think you'd have better success with, say, Heavy Tanks in multiplayer than you do with 106 heavy infantry but it's all good. If handled with care and a little museum, zero ground troops are needed with transport in multiplayer. But note that war and multiplayer are completely different beasts; war is more difficult.

I agree with all that has been said so far from the previous members and I would like to add:
1. why did it take that long to reach space age? This is crazy...You should have been info age now. Your offence would be around 50-60% stronger with another slot for museum and more wonders. But it is not too late. Upgrade factory, airstrip, library, castle, war academy, silo and the troops you use ONLY at the armory and .......
2. advance age again to digital. max your offence. Do nothing else. Do the exact same thing and ......
3. advance again age to info. Stay there and again max your offence. Do nothing else.
4. Then you can decide which troop combo you are gonna use and what is wrong with your attacks .

fyi your choices are:

- 16 Commando/ rest Zooks for bases up to 320-330 level.

- ΗΤ/transports. 6 HT, 6 zooks , 2 transports και 2 planes (or 1 recon) 4 sabotage, 1 protect, 1 first aid, 1 decoy και 1 betrayal

- 12 Helicopters, 2 transports και 2 planes 5 sabotage 1 protect 1 decoy και 1 betrayal

For a space age, it is comfortable to get 5 stars frim digital opponent with the same museum. If you want to message me to browse the correct way in your age.
