    Impressive amount of elixers by the way. :)

    That's how most forums work. You reach a certain post count and more features are unlocked and your status automatically upgrades. This one is messed up though. They do monthly promotions on the 21st or 22nd of each month. Sometimes people have gotten to hundreds of posts before getting "chosen," while others have had it happen much sooner.

    There are probably some other members more qualified to provide the tips on being chosen, hopefully some will chime in.

    I woke up to 5751 elixir this morning and thought I had a great night but obviously nowhere near 9K! Great job. I tap all neighbors and some randoms and hit castles with cheaters if I have any.

    This morning just over 2000 elixer and 900+ gold. I make a point of having maximum nerds available to send on random attacks overnight (1 nerd per building). With 45 nerds currently available from my 3 castles it mounts up quickly. During the day I'll split between friends and random. If you attack me then I WILL get you back (good for both of us). I guess it must be OK as I've got about 9000 gold and most of my friends are on the 2-3 thousand mark.

    EDIT: very impressive spo0ky_lu.

    Logged in this am to be rewarded with 7550 elixir and 2000something gold.

    It was early and can't quite remember. :?

    Am on over 17,500 coins thus far and me simple strategy seems to be working. Each time I get my nerd allowance I attack randoms, finding towns with at least 1 castle, then sending 1 nerd per building (castles first) to the 5 max. Then move onto the next town. Seems to work for me thus far :wink:

    Woke up to 8000 elixar and 2853 gold and I have the photo to prove it. I'm using varations on the one nerd per city and my personel strategy by where I analyse current buildings being destroyed, the amount of time left on their castle, size of the town and if characters are on their tasks to decide how many nerds I'll send. It works. Yesterday I had 6.2k elixar so that's an increase of 1800.

    I have not hit 1000 yet. I got 400 something once.

    Apparently sending 5 nerds per town to neighbors, hoping they will reciprocate, is not a good method.

    I've been consistently doing single nerd per building, hoping to trade defensive earnings with neighbors.

    The alternative is to start doing max nerds per building, searching for undefended castles. Sounds more tedious. I'll just stick to what I'm doing. There seems plenty of time left.

    Hopefully as castles get more defense people will change to my technique and we will earn more defensively.

    Or i could be learning the real lesson in war, if you have the money you can afford to buy the victories and smother weak attackers like me.

    KEEP CALM AND TAP ON

    I think it's been shown that max reward is 1 nerd per building, attacking random towns. The payoffs are considerable bigger - especially successes. You can minimize the time/effort by attackign houses too. It does impact the total payout, but not nearly as much as attacking friends does.

    The defensive stuff is nice - it's more gold per tap, but quite frankly, it just doesn't happen enough. I'm not getting attacked enough to hit the goals. I've tried to do reciprocating, but it doesn't work. One of hte big things I've noticed is that you can only revenge 1 attack per building. So if you someone attacks your castle, and you defend, but have no nerds, then someone attacks again when you log in to collect your nerds, the revenge is that 2nd person, and you lose the revenge on the first. It's find when it's neighbors (and you remember who attacked), but doesn't work for randoms.

    My strategy is that I am in different time zone to many of my friends in the US, Australia & Europe :wink: can't say it's one that I planned on but heck... it works. My UK-based neighbors are the only thorn in my side, as far as my strategy is concerned, as I am only an hour ahead of them.

    ive hit 10,000 elixir and 3000 gold overnight a few times.... really not that hard. I make 60 nerds every 2 hours. so all my attacks at 4PM, 6PM, 8PM, and 10PM I get the coins for when I wake up.

    60 attacks each time, 4 attacks after 4PM.. 240 nerds x 70 elixir each = 16,800 elixirs. of which im getting 10,000 so im above 50% success rate on attacking.
