The upgrade that happened in the game lately is the Level 50 limit. One of the reasons behind it is to make the playing field as reasonably competitive as possible. What I like about this move is that the ending is clear. For players like me, it is like a finish line that can be targeted upon although the path is unpredictable, which makes it exciting.
Being able to level up from level 11 last week to level 13 was due to:
- Attacking kingdoms that are no more than three (3) times smaller. To do that, assuming you'll attack the smallest, check your kingdom size and divide that by 3. Example: If your kingdom size is 3000, you divide that by 3 and you'll get 1000. Search for kingdoms that are 1001 to 1010 in size and pick one that you can attack from there. I now prioritize attacking those with the highest level in the result and not affiliated to any alliance.
If you are lucky, you'll find them neglecting their hero already with lots of gold in it. Also, the higher the level of the hero you are attacking, the higher the experience points.
- Focus on strengthening my knights and pikemen. I use my hourly gold income to get knights prior to attack and use gold gathered during attacks or mana to replenish the pikemen.
