Casualties was=around 48,000
Backup Converts: 1000 give or take a few
I don't even touch the mouse now unless I want to convert a few enemy units. It looks pretty much like a blood bath on the field. Little stick figures running in and getting splattered as soon as they enter sight almost, the ones that don't get splattered I usually convert. The enemies demolition men are the enemies I like best, considering click them and they blow up the stick figures that they are around...
Strategy I used/am using, Once I had enough points bought the temple, and began converting as many enemies as I could each stage 4-6 mostly, then I bought the mana pool once I had enough points, next I bought the archery range once I had enough points. It was stage 09 by that time. I still had 100% health for the castle and had not repaired it once. I bought the workshop at stage 13 and used 5 enemy converts as repairmen (Whatever you call the craftsmen). I got 5 wizards, and 5 archers at the end of stage 13.
Killed and converted enemies until stage 20. Then I trained 20 more archers, and 30 more wizards, and 10 more craftsmen. Stage 25 I fortified Castle Wallsx10 around 15 times. Stage 30 trained 20 more archers and 30 more wizards and 20 craftsmen. 35 fortified walls 15 times again. You get the point. At the end of each stage notice your spendable points, and write it down.
Here is how to figure what your unit upkeep will be (I think) The cost of each unit is
Do the math if you want to. Multiply the number of units by how much that type of unit costs. Example if you have 10 archers, 10 wizards, and 10 craftsmen.
Multiply 10 by 200.
2000 is what you should come up with
same for the wizards 10 by 200
this time multiply 10 by 50
come up with 500 right?
Okay now add it 2000+2000+500=4500 right?
So your unit upkeep is -4500. That means 4500 will be taken out of your spendable points.
Before adding any more units to anything figure out how much it will cost, if you have enough points to pay for each unit you won't lose any units, otherwise if you don't have enought to pay all the units, you will loose the units that you cannot pay for.
Some don'ts of Defend Your Castle
1. Never buy the demolition lab, its a waste of time, points and converts...
2, Never use more units than you can pay for...That is also a waste.
3. Don't let any damage come to the castle at least before stage 10 or eleven..
My plan, is to have 5000 back up converts, 300 wizards, 1000 archers, and 200 craftsmen by stage 100.
I am too obsessed.
I am addicted to it.
I doubt if I will ever stop playing it.
I think its a never ending game.
