USEFUL DETAIL:
The Land Trick: When buying a new land, you are given the opportunity to have a one time FREE unload.

When you buy a new land, always build an attack building. If you are planning to build a attack building on this land anyways, then build the one you wanted, you will see a small amount of soldiers appear. These soldiers are very weak, so you will need to use attack items to ensure successful hits. Do a full unload of soldiers (24-26 hits if no fails).

If you are planning to build a spy or defense building on this land, follow the steps previously stated, but with a level 1 of the least expensive attack building you can build on that land. Once you are done unloading your soldiers fully, simply sell the attack building and build the building you had planned to build.

When selling a building you will receive 20% of the total value invested.


Message from KaWCentral about builds

According to our calculations, and this has been tested, this is the best way to build. If you follow these instructions exactly, you will surpass your friends, they will think you are using real money to grow your kingdom. If you are not starting from the reset position, simply try to get as close to this build as possible. As long as you always have Max Plunder, you'll be just fine.

We are testing at all times to slightly improve the build, but in all cases the guides work.

All builds end up the exact same, 41 ELEs & 8 SOS at HLBC.

To know how to manage your build after HLBC CLICK HERE (Coming Soon)

THINK ABOUT THIS
Your kingdom consists of 49 lands that you can build on, after that, stats are all acquired by allies you own. Combined stats for T4s, ELE = 9,474,400 CF = 8,610,000 TL = 9,117,600. Comparing CFs to ELEs you can see a difference of 864,400 combined stats, multiply that by 41 (suggested build) for a sum of 35,440,400 more stats (equivalent to over 2 trillion gold in allies). Simply put, with limited space, you want to get as much as you can.


We will not be going over all the different options since most of them are simply bad. We will only explain the ones that you should be building. To understand the mechanics of any build, go to "Part 4 : Mechanics".

NOTE: Remember that a lvl3 T2 building is better then a lvl2 T3 building. This means that you shouldn't get any T3s until you have saved up 1.33bil to do a instant switch to T3.

HANSEL

Hansel means to be a mostly spy kingdom. This does not mean you are useless, and it doesn't mean you have to be "mean" to others. This is simply the most profitable way to play, and this will help you grow very quickly.

What you need: a balanced building such as Beast, AVI, or ELE, and guilds lvl3 or lvl4 (One AVI is enough to be successful in EBs). SOS buildings should be limited because the cost to profit ratio is not as good, but it all depends on your current goals.

SYSTEM WAR

The War build as we call it is simply the best build for use against other players. It's also excellent in EBs and pretty much any situation. This can also be used very effectively as a OAF.

This build is suggested for T4 so I will only explain the T4 build (Hansel is suggested until T4). Since ELE's give more total stats then any other building these are the attack buildings to get. You will also want to have 4-8 SOS. By having this build you get much more from your allies while still having a great base of spies.

While prepping for a war, it may be a good idea to get 1 of each maxed defensive buildings, this will give a small layer of protection, since the point is to give less plunder to the other side, this is good, but these are not always necessary.

NON SYSTEM WAR (OSW/NSW)

The NSW build is very similar to the System War build, but where it varies is that you do not care about plunder, all you care about is beating on the opponents and not being destroyed in the process. In this case, it is neccesary to have a thick layer of spy protection. I only suggest getting this spy protection if you are already HLBC, other then that, you are probably still concentrating on growth, and this layer will slow you down more then anything.

If you are HLBC, then having 2-4 SPY DEF buildings as well as allies that give you strong spy defense is very important.

NOTE: You will not be able to stop a max pure spy unless you are one of the top players because of the sheer massiveness of these spy stats, but it doesnt matter too much.

OSF, OAF & CLAN FARM

A OSF is a player that has 0 attack or attack defense buildings, these players also usually try to have allies with low attack defense stats because the whole point of these players is to let other players successfully attack.

A OAF is a player that lets others steal from him

A Clan Farm is a player that can have high or low attack stats, usually this player "hides his gold" to let other players hit him without losing any gold. A clan farm can also be a regular player that has gone innactive (if you are trying to attack players without being mean to anyone), or players that have upset your clan (keep in mind, this player can get very upset and retaliate).


Questions before choosing your build!

1) Do you intend to or have you started doing your 4 (or more) LC Resets?

If you answered :

Yes = STOP! The developers have stopped giving out bonuses for LC Resets. The only reasons to reset now are for changing your name for free, gathering crystals, or bombing your owner. If you are still interested in doing LC Resets for Crystals, follow Build #4.
No = Read next question

2) Do you prefer to grow very very quickly to HLBC but not be able to participate in real war, or would you prefer to grow slower (much slower) while always being ready for real war?



If you answered :

Grow Very Fast To HLBC = See next question
Grow Slower For War = BUILD #2

3) Will you be in a gold rush clan (one that will get you billions every day, no matter your size) or do you have friends that will get you billions right away? If yes, follow build #3

Great guide. I am trying to do the old build for war. Could you add a total number of buildings and what they are like you did for the new build? I found that extremely helpful.
