A few things I noticed about tactics: Keep troops on the front lines to shave a few precious seconds off to get 3 stars (although I dont see any advantage to 3 stars over 2). I dont know why, but my troop would sometimes improve if I do archers 1 row in front of swordsman. I also found it best to stack top or bottom heavy with better troops.
Tips: windmills (and later solar panels) can be best used off-grid to reduce wires and routing problems. Ex: two lvl-6 sand pits on either side of a solar panel = 0 wires and only needs a road; a windmill next to board factories, coal quaries or stone quaries needs no wires; 1 solar panel for four lvl-4 water producers may need wires but much less and easy to untangle as you dont need to always connect to a battery.
The thing that brought me here were the tags ... MMO, IDLE and adventure. I didn't think those 3 tags could be brought together. But now that I'm here I'm reading the comments as I wait for the game to load. I don't like IDLE or most MMO's but just reading the comments here, I also dont think I'll finish downloading the game just out of curiosity to see how the game works.
Honestly @Vargen, this is beta. There is a warning at the top of the flash window that says 'your progress may be lost' at any time. You really have no garentee that what you do here is in anyway perminate or for your fun. To the contrary, you are working on a beta game to help the developer. However, after having said that, its disappointing that the developer does not communicate the server downtime better.
Town hall upgrade says "requires town hall level xx to upgrade". Thats not right or just confusing. Should be player level or something. Also when doing 'wanted' challenges, you can change the team up but it doesnt update the screen showing your team vs their team. Just a couple of bugs for you.
I remember playing this game for many a few hours when it was released. This is the best flight sim on kong and one of, or the very best, game on kong IMO. I do have to comment momoguru though that 1 year later, still doing updates on the game, listening to your players and responding to the comments ... thats amazing! Ok boys and girls, you know you payed out the a** on your pay-to-play games. Now its time to buy Astrox just to support a great developer on a real game! You dont have to play the local version but do it to support him, $10 is a cheap game. And keep up the good work momo!
I havnt even played the game yet but when all the top comments are negative about the developer and the game, I feel so disappointed that this is the game kong decides is newest and most badge worthy game right now.
