Plundering and You

Plundering is a part of the game that isn’t going anywhere. Inno Games built Forge of Empires with plundering as part of the design, and they’ve made no bones about it that it’s here to stay. For some, attacking and plundering is second nature. For others, being the victims of plunder and never the attacker happens more frequently than they’d like. It’s just kind of the way it goes. If...

Comprehensive Guide to Great Buildings and your Pl...

At the inception of this site we released an article on what GBs were right for you. This really wasn’t a comprehensive list of all the GBs in the game though, nor did it truly discuss which play style(s) they work best for. So this article is going to amend that. The original one is still good for the absolute basics of planning, but this one will be what really gets into the nitty-gritty. You’re welcome to read...

Refined Goods: Modern Era and Beyond

There are many milestones in the game, but a big one is entering the Modern Era (ME). By now you’ve already experienced two-lane roads, and you know that the way troops behave has updated. New to ME though, is the process of refining goods. Now, for the first time, it costs more than just coins and supplies to run goods buildings, it costs earlier-age goods too. For many, this is a daunting thought, and it can be...

Tips for a Better City Layout

When it comes to this game, space is at a premium. More and more cool special event buildings are released, you age-up to a new era and the buildings get bigger and bigger, you add in tons of great buildings… and before you know it you have no room for anything else! Not only can you not rotate buildings (a feature Inno promises they will never implement, so don’t ask), but some of the buildings are really odd...

Earning Forge Point Packs

In the earlier days of FOE, when GE was brand new and negotiations didn’t even exist, it was a little easier to earn FP packs. This is because GE FP winnings were given in packs, and you tended to win them a bit more often. Then Inno changed that, and there was unrest that they were also taking packs away from GB rewards. Thankfully, the latter didn’t happen. As it stands today there are only a few ways to get FP...

Handy Dandy Hall of Fame

It’s a common thought that the two best ways to raise a guild’s level are to do Guild Expedition or Guild vs Guild; either one or the other, or both in some manner. There is nothing wrong in this thinking, and these are what make the game something to interact with daily (among other things). They’re not the only two things however that can raise up a guild’s level. Many forget about the Hall of Fame,...

The Joys of Questing

When you first hear the term “questing”, you might think that it refers to the Story Quest (and the never ending Princess Myciena), or the Daily Quest, or even the Side Quests. It’s actually none of these things though. Questing refers to the Recurring Quests, which you can do over and over for as many times as you’re able to complete them to win goodies. The prize for a Recurring Quest is always...

Building a Town (Part 3): Farmer Town

Being a farmer is an essential role for a guild regardless of if it’s GvG based, or GE based, because farming helps put needed goods into the treasury. There are treasury GBs to do this, but sometimes you need that extra kick. This could be because your guild is active in an era, or perhaps there are too many mates in an era and not enough goods to unlock GE. Whatever the reason, a treasury cannot feed itself. It...
