How do I send an attack?
In Kingdoms of Camelot: Battle for the North, the attack process involves gathering intelligence, preparing for combat, sending an attack, and holding conquered wilds or resources.
- Gathering Intelligence: A wise player always knows what kind of situation he or she will be confronted with in battle. Because of this, reading up on Wilds and Scouting enemy encampments is very important. You can discover some basic information about your targets by simply tapping rival cities or Wilds. Doing this over a rival city will tell you the Might Level of the player who owns it, as well as what Alliance he or she is associated with. This is very valuable information: if you attack a City that is in an Alliance you may have a great deal of retaliation to deal with.
The other pillar of intelligence gathering is the Scouting feature. When you tap on an enemy Wild or City you have the option to Scout that enemy by sending Scout troops to that tile. When you do, a small time bar will appear, and after it the Scout returns you will have a detailed report of the enemy you are facing which can be viewed in your Mailbox under the Reports tab.
- Preparing for Combat: Making a strike against an enemy target is nothing to take lightly. It is best to use your highest level Knight to command your March (this will give your attacks a boost) and use many more troops in your attack than your enemy has in defense.
- Sending an Attack: To send an attack, tap on your target on the map screen. From here, you will be taken to a menu that will allow you to select how many of your units you would like to send, and which Knight you would like to command them. Once you have made your selections, you will be able to launch your attack. Depending on how far apart your attacking city and your target are, it will take more or less time for the attack to arrive. Once the attack has been completed you will received an attack report to let you know if you achieved victory or not, and what you have gained in conquest.
- Holding a Territory: If you are victorious in attacking a Wild, an icon will appear over the tile indicating which of your cities the territory now belongs to. Your forces from your attack and your Knight will now be 'Encamped' here, which means that they will defend the Wild from the attacks of other players if it is assaulted. If you do not want to keep your troops and your Knight 'Encamped' you can recall them by clicking on the Wild, selecting 'View Troops', and then instructing them to recall to your city. You can also use the 'Reinforce' button to send additional troops from your city to defend the area.
You can view how many Wilds you are holding and the bonuses they are giving you by opening the 'Wilds' tab in your Castle. If your attack was against another player, you will simply get an attack report telling you how many resources you have gained from the raid, as you cannot permanently hold another player's city.
