  1. What would be really helpful is to include terminology that the game itself uses. Such as Legion attack, how is that different from standard troop attack? And the newer features such as resolute defense, defense annihilation, onslaught attack, unstoppable attack, etc. I can’t find this info anywhere and am having to guess at what they mean.

  2. Crr= Chop, Ransom, or release

  3. My alliance asked me to help remove 2k – 3k players because she believes they are no longer playing. How do I do this?
