Creating a Warbook Alliance and manage Kingdom growth

Over the weekend, my hero reached a Level 11 status in Warbook. There are the things I'm doing now in the game to sustain kingdom growth slowly. This includes:
  • Have a ratio of at least 10 army personnel per acre. At least 50% of them be made to pikemen, 10% elites, 30% knights, and 10% soldiers.
  • Carry out attacks whenever alchemy casting is due. As the gold given is based on your kingdom's hourly revenue, successful attacks prior to casting can temporarily increase your land and reduce army size. Make sure that your army ratio is more than 10 per acre before carrying out an attack.
  • Note that as your hero's level increases, the number of exp points needed to level up gets higher. If your goal is to go up once a week, then carrying out 5-10 attacks per day may be necessary.
Usually after overnight, heroes find themselves having more than 1 million gold and may be tempted to create a Warbook alliance. Think if you really need to create or join an existing one. The advantage in being part of a Warbook alliance includes:
  • Being able to ask for help from fellow alliance members whenever you get more than 2 attacks in a day and unable to fight back due to size disadvantage.
  • Be less susceptible to attacks as heroes with alliance affiliation are less attacked for free of being mobbed.
The challenge in creating and maintaining a Warbook alliance includes:
  • You must have friends of various hero levels eager to join you before creating an alliance. The last thing that you want is to be alone in it. I've seen several players who created an alliance and later on requesting it to be deleted - as they are unable to join bigger groups when they need help and have not much members in it.
  • You are responsible for your members. Make sure they follow alliance rules, such as attacking another hero up to 2x only, to avoid getting you all into trouble. This is the reason also why I've made my alliance a close group with five members at the moment for easy management. Although each one is able to recommend future members and be responsible for them.
