beginners and above
Hi, this is Swift. This will be my first Haypi Guide and its subject to some changes and possible errors. I hope you guys enjoy this guide and I hope it helps alot with gameplay.
•Make sure you hunt only about 8-12 hours because if you are going to fail a hunt that is determined at the beginning of the hunt not in the middle of it.
•The more Troops you use the better. Always!
•The best troops to hunt with are by far Calvs (or calvary) the reason being is calvs not only have the highest overload (carrying capacity) but they also have the highest speed. Speed plays an important factor in hunts because it allows units to cover more ground quicker. Fortune also helps significantly in hunting.
•It does not matter the level of oasis or fort u hunt, the probobility is all the same! Do not hunt the same spot twice in succesion though. The sucess rate of the hunt will be worse.
•The best players to farm are players that are inactive or offline that have troops and resources left in there cities. The reason for this is because not only do you want to destroy your opponents army for prestige in a "farming tactic" but you also want to loot the resources they posess. These will help you strengthen your army and upgrade your buildings. Farming is one of the best ways to gain an edge over others. So, if theres a sucka talkin smack... Farm 'em lol keep in mind travel time when you are attacking though. If your opponent is only offline the possibilities of him stopping a 1 minute attack in time vs a 1 hour attack are close to none. Its ALWAYS better to attack someone closer to you unless the farther person has more troops to kill and resources to loot
•Remember the farming technique can be used by everyone so make sure you hunt your troops when you go inactive that way if you recieve any attacks while offline at least you dont lose any prestige!
•Too many troops in an enemy base? Look for weaknesses such as a crop oasis that is nearby that the player targeted might be in posession of. This usually means the player needs the crop oasis to feed his troops and usually the oasis are unguarded, soo, invade the crop oasis. This will take away his bonus and his troops may start to die off due to starvation the higher the level of crop oasis they need to sustain there army the quicker they will die when the oasis is gone. Keep that in mind
•The key to sucessful farming is sucessful scouting! So make sure you are upgrading your scouting skill in your tech building. If your scout isnt higher then your enemys scout then you will not be able to see all the useful information you need such as exact number of troops and exact resources!
•If you scout a high level player and see that he has lots of troops in his base that your army wouldnt stand a chance against make sure to inform higher level players in your alliance. This is useful for them because although you cannot reap the rewards for the killing of all those enemy soldiers your ally can! And trust me, he or she will love you for it!
•If your unsure whether your going to win a battle or not then take 1 minute and grab a friggin calculator! Do some quick calculations and sometimes your answer will be right there! But u need to consider that players added bonuses, attributes and techs as well as yours. Or just ask me in world chat xD lol

Building your army
•1st off dont listen to those that tell you pure cats is the way to go because this isnt true at all. Heres my reasoning:
A) Cats are HORRIBLE at farming! They are the slowest units and virtually no overload so u dont get many resources from Raiding!
B) If you should get into a battle with someone thats pure speed and they have a calvary army that out numbers your cat army at lease 3:1 or 4:1 then calvs will win! What they lack attack and health in they dominate in their ability to get in close and wreak some havoc on the enemy cats!
The best units to start off with until about lvl 6 is infantry and archers for quick prestige. Then cats are the best until you can pump out an army of at least 500 cavs per day per city. (Cav army is only good if u have the speed to use them! Keep that in mind)
A) Quick to make
B) Very Cheap
C) Sizeable overload (good for raids)
D) Great for meatshielding against a cav rush or massive infantry force
E) Trap Baiter (Its good to feed traps with)
A) Highest overload (Amazing raiding)
B) Highest Speed (For battles and hunting
B) They give the MOST prestige overall. (Yes, more then infantry)
A) High Range
B) Most powerful unit
C) Good against all leveled towers (depending on range tech level)
D) Great for defending with

-Remember again to always HUNT YOUR TROOPS when you go offline!! I cannot stress this enough guys!
-The "secret warehouse" is a good idea another person made in their guide. U can sell resources in the marketplace for a rediculous amount of money that way nobody will buy them and u can just cancel selling them if you need to use them! Make sure you have people to carry them though! Also if someone does buy them then oh well lol you just made a big chunk of change for technologys and treasure.
