Plunder


How to you determine if a plunder attack will be worth it? The best I have been able to grab is only 10% of the GC. I was told that if conditions were correct I could grab up to 1/3 of their GC. What gives?

Is the land ratio important, or is the relative NW more of a driving force?

Just curious, the last time I tried it I lost more value in elites than I got back, kinda bummed about it.

Re: Plunder


The few times I've plundered stuff I got returns based on relative acreage. I once plundered a guy with 25 acres and a million gc. I got 25000, I think. I plundered someone else who was maybe 110% my size and got around 20 or 25% of his cash.

Re: Plunder


Plunder, Learn, and Missionary when they had it were all pretty weak when you compared it to the gains of TM.

Re: Plunder


It's not too hard to make a decent landgrab with traditional march every 20 hours or so, but if your networth and dpa doesn't keep up with your growth in land, it can be hard to hold on to the extra acreage. Plunder, and Learn give your army something to do while you're building and training troops.

I found a guy around my size with about 2.5 mil.

I attacked and got 576k

he had just under 6k runes and i got about 1200

food i forget...

that's 23%... so with that and what else I've read here I guess plunder gives you ~25% of their goodies.

2 ages ago intra-kingom plunder would give you 1/3 solid. And it didn't matter what their size was. Ahhh a good time to be undead in a ghetto!

The most I got is 41% of somebodys GC. He was 131% of my own size.

If somebody is interested I got some statistics from my plunders.

Since I started late thsi round I took a few days for plunders while maintaining barracks and unis.

what is the use of other attacks beside traditional march.......if you weigh them out...acres are TONS better then money or food.....which can be given by other kd mates through aid or stolen.......and...you risk being retalled by them and lose acres...which is just stupid...i think mehul should make the gains for plunder .better...like 1/3 of all the opponent money, food AND runes...this would really make ppl opt for plunder....and probably more honor...anyway..either way...i will never use plunder.....it is a useless form of wasting your military

Plunder is great, I try to use it every second day, just after my troops get home. It's give me some extra gc, when I have to train my army...

One land grab every second day and a plunder other day is good for any attacker.
