How to prepare for strategus fights

Through tutoring a lot of new and small factions in strategus there are several pointers coming up over and over again, so i will try to structure here how you would prepare for a battle from choosing the target till preparing battle plans and doing rollcall.
Army compositions are a very individual thing i will put in the end some examples for armies as i think they should look like for several purposes.

I ) troop count
(click to show/hide)
II ) gear
(click to show/hide)

III ) siege equipment
(click to show/hide)

IV ) Target selection
(click to show/hide)

V ) securing an area
(click to show/hide)

VI ) attack has been initiated what now
(click to show/hide)

VII ) The Battle
(click to show/hide)

VIII ) aftermath
(click to show/hide)


XXXXX) i may restructure this article later as it is quite a bunch of information and there may be better ways to structure an present them. Please let me know about any mistakes i would make in terms of game mechanics.

Armor Sets(as)
They are always combined out of Head, Body, Hand and Foot gear.
The armor sets used here are catagorized in 4 stages
(click to show/hide)

Depending on where you can buy what and/or other reasons some of the gear can be used for upto 2-3 different armor set types as described above, that is more of a pragmatic then a perfectionist approach. Sadly that is often the reality in strategus  :rolleyes:.

Weapons&Stuff
names used to describe later in more detail the %

Conflict Situations
These are the general situations you run into with your troops. Please let me know if you would have additional situations which don't fit into the following categories.
I included rough number estimates, also there arguable so let me know.

also to be considered

Army Compositions

These now are examples for the situations described above. I hope we get a discussion running especially on this as this is how i would do it and i have reasons for it, but everyone could make different assumptions and i would be highly interested on your take on those.

Depending on the situation you want your army prepared for you should adjust your gear combination, therefor i try to give here rough estimates in which situations you want to have what type of gear in which relation to each other.

I use here a fixed troop numbers, so you can more easily compare and get the idears behind the %/fractions. When you have different troop numbers orientate yourself at the % or fractions.

Nice guide kinngrimm- if you would like me to edit it for errors of grammar/spelling and such, I will do that for you. It is perfectly readable but you took good time and effort to write this. I will help in any way I can if you'll allow.

you are welcome to correct me in any way possible in terms of grammar as well game mechanics and additional advice which would need to be in this to complete the guide.

No need to down vote this post as he asked if he can help, not accused me of something or being unpolite.

 :lol: i dont really think here is anything in it the UIf wouldnt know already or wouldnt have perfected on their own already. It is just that the new guys don't know often these things and therefor they may fuck up hours of grinding troops and equipment. That then makes my heart bleed.

no just tired of repeating myself over and over and over again and again and again =)
So i will use this also for other new factions to give it to them for introduction =)
Most of the things i do for strat are about efficeny ... i know typical german ^^
But hey i got only that much time and everything which reduces overhead gets me more time to play in the end the game right.

Actually i could post just my pm's to several faction leaders and i would create a complete compendium of strategus ^^
I wrote this down in one go, without much thinking, that shows me how often i had to repeat it already.

I was just about to PM you asking if you lost your job, or something...  :D

This definitely should get stickied if you ask me... Some "guides for newbies" section, maybe? Like together with FAQs and other similar stuff you produce later  :D

@Erasmas - you're naive. Kinngrimm is extremely lazy and inefficient guy. TBH I doubt that he is German and he looks rather like typical Pole. He's repeated this whole knowledge over 9000 times to all children from his kindergarten, instead write down everything in one place and giving only link. I'm pretty sure, thats not a  typical German behavior^^

@Kinngrimm - great job! I have some minor comments and I'm happy to help you. In my free time, I'll be looking for you on your TS. Cya  :)

Awsome Kinggrimm!

Very useful guide for the newer people, but even for the more experienced.

Might I add one point?

In the team speak part add that commander(s) get prior speech in the channels they will use.
So that everyone will always hear them over the rest.
