I'm thinking this is a dumb question as I write it but here it goes.
Can you play this game casually and get into a decent alliance? Or am I just making myself into a future farm?
I have not played in 7 years and am noticing that the good alliances require gettertools and discord. I have never used or heard of either until now.
I use gold. (can you really play without it?)
Check into my account often and have a dual.
getter tools and discord will be loaded shortly and learned.
I'm surrounded by several of the big alliances on my server and about to make my second village. Just not sure if I'm going to build where I'm at or move a bit away. Last time I played I was in a top alliance and the loners always asked about building close to our area. Is this a thing? Just wondering how this game has evolved.
