I assume you have already tooked at the crimson citadels page. If you havent, do so.
Troops choice: Use ranged troops. Due to the war scarabs, you will loose troops when using only melee. Recommended troops are lava jaws, volt rangers and/or arctic leviathans. If you do not have super good sanc and forge, you probobly need to use millions of troops.
Forge: mainly ranged damage and range. Speed can also be smart if you happen to get it. More life and defense means less troops lost if you happen to loose some.
Sanctuary: as above, abilities that increase ranged and range. General damage increasing abilities as metallurgy and fury also boosts ranged damage. Spesific abilities(like lava jaw range is only for lava jaw) is as good as general abilities(for all ranged troops/all troops), but of course, lava jaw range wont help if you are using volt rangers or arctic leviathans.
Relevent research: weapons calibration and metallurgy. WC increase range and Met increase the damage. Also, if maybe rapid deployment could be a bonus if you doesnt already have enough speed to get the first strike.
Yeah, I do understand how it's work. I just wanted to know some of the details in it. I saw one of your reply in crimson citadel page. You stated that you used up to 1.57 mil lava jaws to defeat a citadel. May i know your research, forge and sanctuary in details ? As I just want to play safe with crimson citadel.
I have max research(level 20). I do not remember exactly how my sanctuary and forge was on that time, but, look at the battle reports under "how to beat" on the crimson citadel page. The one where I win with 157 000, I think has the forge and sanc or about the forge and sanc I used to safe it with 1.57 million LJs
Sorry, I think I am going to refuse then because of the more responsebilities part. Normally, I dont have time to be here that much when there is school and other stuff. However, I will probobly continue etiting a couple pages now and then when new stuff is added to the game etc. You can feel free to send me some pointers on layout and tables if you like, but you dont have to. :)
