    Hillbillies Announcement Z15

    All Hillbillies,

    In order to help leadership we are going to try something new. This is a trial run to see how this works and we welcome your feedback.

    We are going to split the r4’s up into teams and with those teams we hope to assign each individual. These new formations will be called platoons of 20 people. Among the platoon will be two squads of ten that will have a squad leader. We are doing this in order to encourage two way communication among all individuals, you will now have someone who you can clarify information with directly. Each position will have responsibilities.

    Platoon leaders will be responsible for getting information from our R5 and then distributing the information to their platoon. In addition to this each platoon will have a assignments that will be focused on maintaining and improving our guilds.

    Squad leaders will be in charge of keeping in touch with each of their squad members. It will be up to the squad leader to ensure that the squad member has complete understanding by using two way communication to verify understanding. If any squad member is having an issue, you should contact your squad leader and your platoon leader to let them know.
    So far we have split the platoon leadership up as the following

    Platoon 1 Madmax4 and LilCapretta will be in charge of setting goals and diplomatic relations

    Platoon 2 Faulcon and Mondo will be in charge of continuous growth of current members by supporting with information and resources. Also with work with guild structure and dynamics.

    Platoon 3 Rambo6969 and Legion will be in charge of public relationships with other guilds and coming up with new ways to entertain us… I hope you can dance legion.

    Platoon 4 JackedaRippa and WARDOGG will be in charge of finding targets and preparing attacks

    Platoon 5 GH0STWARRI0R and BEAK will be in charge of recruitment and keeping our numbers active.

    While these platoon leaders will be in charge of a specific task, all leadership will still be involved in all decisions. These roles will change as time goes on and adapt to current needs of the guild.

    At this time we would like the insight and request from as many members as we can in order to make sure we build the best teams. If you want to be with a certain team or part of a certain tasking please sign up for it now. We will also need squad leader. It will be each platoon leader’s decision, but if you are interested in doing so please say something.
    We hope that when fully implemented that important on the spot decisions will no longer be made by just a few people on the top, but by the people who it effects most. This is a way for us to share the leadership among many members of the guild instead of just a few. The only way this works is if there is two way communication going on at each level of leadership.

    We welcome all comments, questions and concerns… please feel free to share but list your name when sharing them…

    Thank you from the Hillbillies on top.

    After this post reply with your in game name and which platoon you prefer to be part of and if you would be willing to be a squad leader.

    Our way to more rss

    1 Billion RSS a day

    As the game progresses every player should be focused on getting to t3 troops, once there you will want to get a decent size army and gather rss. This is ok for the beginning, but as more players advance, the amount of rss tiles to gather in the high levels will become scarce. There is a way around this.
    Every player should focus on type of RSS and then trade for the others. The reason being is that you can focus all extra talents into this one type of rss during peace times.

    Here is the setup;
    21 focus rss
    1 of each other rss
    Talent books for war
    A guild that is ready to share all other resources

    If this is a main account that you want to use to fight with, you will need to spread your talents in a way to maximize troop production, research, and construction… Around level 45 you will have extra talents outside of this, put all these talents in to the focus rss

    If this is an account made just for rss or to help the economy, skip putting any talents in combat tab all together and put all extra talents in the resource type. This begins at a much earlier level.

    Research only the focus rss type in the lab, the others you can do later, but they will be basically useless and only good for small increases in power

    By doing this I manage two accounts that produce a great deal. A primary fighter account that during peace produces 6 mil energy a day and a rss producer that is not designed to fight in big battles produces 14 mil oil a day.
    Challenges;

    You will want to continue to grow your primary base, so I suggest that you build these only why you wait on the rss to produce the rest. I gather the other rss, or I trade for it, either way it takes a little time. My guild has done amazing well in giving rss to players when they need it, so they don’t have to wait, but sometimes we do have to wait for rss. This is the time I spend on improving my rss tiles. It is relatively cheap on rss and quick in time compared to the other builds, so it is a great time filler. The bigger the building the more rss you will need, the more time it might take therefore the more time you will have to grow your rss tiles.
    Dumping rss to keep production going. When you specialize, it’s good to have another player who is specialized into something else, this way you can dump your extras on them and they can dump there extras on you.
    What about the food;

    Food banks. It is ideal to have one mid to high level account to have hardly any troops per guild. It would be best to have someone control it who is very active. More than one may be necessary to cover the hours in a day. This can still be done with one guild slot, if you put these accounts in the middle of a hive and then allow r4s to kick and invite as needed. The ideal is to this account store the guild’s food. It should be specialized in a different rss than food, because you will have more food in this account than its capacity. Everyone else in the guild can destroy all except one farm. Anytime you build something and have extra food, or farm rss tiles for food (we all know there are to many in your zone anyways), just send the extra food to a food bank. Later when you need the food just ask for it back when your food bank is on. To supplement this use those war simulation tokens wisely by focusing on food items. This is better than trying to produce enough farms to keep up with the upkeep. There is no penalty for 0 food in a base, so keeping it at 0 while you have upkeep and using a food bank is a much better way to manage food. The shipping center in the food bank needs to be at least level 12, but should be higher in order to get the amount of food a player needs quickly.
    If you use food banks, all other accounts can focus on the other three rss field types, the more who are sold on this ideal the better this process well work. If every player did this, even with fighter accounts your guild could be making 500mil to over 1bil rss a day. That is more than any guild could gather.

    This set up requires team players who are willing to help each other at any time. By being interdependent of each other and relying on each other will lead to a much more effective guild and faster growing guild. This set up will lead to exponential gains over time and when it comes to war time and people are hitting troops that are gathering, you will be able to weather the storm much easier and keep the supply training going between players.
    For this to work, you will need to buy extra talent books and have them on hand. You can get the talent books from the black market relatively cheap. I yet to use diamonds buying talent books.

    For those who don't have time for all that, key points

    21 focus rss
    1 of each other rss

    Commander Talents
    -Main/fighting accounts
    --spread talents to maximize troop production, research, and construction
    --extra talents in focus rss
    -Secondary/non fighting accounts
    --Spread talents to max in research and construction
    --Extra talents in focus rss

    Research only the focus rss type in the lab

    Keep production going
    -When close to capacity limit for focus rss, give it away to another player with different focus rss

    Food Banks
    -We have a food bank, ask for it in game
    -The food bank could be any player that has low troops,
    --even zeroed players can help out and do this while they rebuild
    -Send all extra food to it
    -When it begins to get low, we will ask all players to gather food and send it to the food bank
    -For small builds and troops use items
    --Win food items in war simulator, focus on food items and speed ups, ignore rest

    Why...
    This game is progressing to larger and larger troop counts. People will become desperate to kill other people's troops and with time hitting gathering troops to hurt other players will become a norm since assaults on bases will be very difficult. When this time comes we should be able to sustain long enough with gathering to last through conflicts, but only if we have a good infrastructure built up. When this time comes, guilds who rely solely on gathering will stop growing, we will thrive. Already we are seeing lv 5 rss are not spawning fast enough to keep up with the demand and much of the zone is stuck farming lower level rss fields. This won't be a problem to us if we can get the majority of us to specialize as I laid out above.
    Even when our players get zeroed, they will not be helpless, they will just serve a different role while they rebuild. Those of us who are lucky enough to survive will be able to continue to grow.
    Siege tactics will be a given as this game progresses, meaning war will be fought by trying to starve the other players out of resources, if all our resources are produced within our bases, we will survive longer.
    This is why we are starting to focus more on team play... It will be come vital that all players help the guild in one way or another. Rather it be by trading rss, fighting in battles, or occupying territory... everyone needs to help by doing there part. I don't expect anyone to all three, but I do expect everyone to do one of the three.
