training grounds...

aight i think training grounds are pretty pointless early on and even when i get big i dont even use them... i was thinking they'd be used more if they were given another advantage

my idea was that not only would it decrease maintenence costs, it would also increase draft rate and training... we'll say for now 20% max? i just thought of this since i cant stand that they have the building, i think its basically pointless...
flame away...

No flames from me.....I was running my Undeads with 30% banks and 0 % training grounds...After our last pump, I switched to 20% Training Grounds and 10% banks and I am making 20k more per day...That is with an all elite army..

Yeah, I've never used TGs. Well, that's not much coming from a T/M, but I did play attacker twice on gen and didn't use them either time.

Not a single training ground here either, waste of space. have a near all elite army and still don't need em. Extra 20% draft rate would almost change my mind though.

yeah but having an all-elite army is not common - they're pretty expensive and some of em are weak on defence (orcs ne1?)

Training grounds are only worth it if you are using an all elite army and your not a warrior/have 70% of your peasents as leets since with the wizards and the thiefs you got almost no peasent making banks worthless
I have 60% of my total pop as leets and im warrior so banks are better

I run all elite, and TG's are a lifesaver. They earn me about 40k a day I'd say on ten percent. Then again, I have horrendous maintainence costs

going all elite, TG's and banks combo usually works for the best. and you're saying it's NOT common?!?!?! Dwarves and undeads, what do you think they do sit around with offspecs and defspecs? i would go all elite in both cases, but i'm an avian and their defense bites

i just dont see a point, i have 25k elites atm and banks are doing fine for me... i just thought that for a rather new building its not used as much as some of the other buildings are... figured it needed to have something else so that more people would use it

Sorry, I'm a bit sensitive to that sort of generalization. What you meant to say is that the TGs + Banks combo can work best if and only if you have more than 20% banks + TGs, as well as horrendous expenses.

I'm playing undead war hero, going attacker mage. Since I've guilds and banks and towers, I go tog everyday when I'm not in war. Running 30% banks, 18% guilds and 10% towers. I get 12k net income a day, but an extra 800k each day from tog. On top of that, I get to react fast to sudden declarations(yeah, I'm paranoid) cos I have enough guilds and runes lying around. Also, I'm running 66% draft, full elites, and that's 22k elites at 1310 acres.
