We have an international alliance so we use our time zones to our best advantage. The Wed. war starts at 3am here on the west coast of Canada. While we in North America are sleeping, our European and New Zealand players are fighting. They use their weaker teams to take out all of the the opponents weaker teams so the timers can be reset. By the time we here in NA are waking up, the weaker teams have revived and we can hit them again.
Our strongest teams make their own decisions on who to target. Our middle and weaker teams then strategize on the other targets, and wait for scraps. I have no life so it’s my job to study the board and let the players know who to attack. I’m familiar with their teams so I am able to make suggestions that best suit their abilities, They are free to disagree of of course if they find another target they like better.
Near the end of the war when a lot of our players are playing with weak teams we tag team. Often there will be 3 or 4 of us on a target and we take turns alphabetically. We don’t know who will end up with the kill shot.
Our secret weapon is those timers. We are very patient and wait for targets we like. We don’t rush in and don’t do a suicide mission, until the last hour of the game. Since the update we rarely win due to overly strong opponents, but we all fight, almost everyone chats, and we have a lot of fun, especially trying to remember the alphabet,
