TACTICS TO CONSIDER

Because the Mist Walker has the highest initiative in the game, it is extremely helpful to scout encounters in this province using Heavy Range Units and then trying to place your Mage Units out of the Mist Walker’s range.

Fights with large combinations of all 3 enemy types will be the most difficult.

elvenar, marble, gok

We recommend these be catered or fought manually using a mix and match of your fighters according to the obstacles on the battlefield,
especially after round 3 of the tournament.

AUTO-FIGHT

Most tournaments in the first few rounds can be won with auto-fight. This can be a great option for fighting novices to still be able to use a mix of resources (units and goods) so more tournament provinces and rounds can be won.

For many of the first rounds of fights, if you pick the right match ups, the fight is easy enough for auto-fight to do as good of a job as manual fighting would do for far less effort.

Of course, choose at your own risk. The more difficult the fight, and the more even the match-up, the more likely it is that you are nearly guaranteed to lose far more units with auto-fight than with manual fight.
