if you only had 2 towns, you can't possibly imagine the scope of the army strength in the end game. as time goes on and more cities are built, the enemy hordes get larger with more hp and more attack/defense. you will stop building solo troops and start building stacks of companies, since your army can only have about 10-12 slots. 10-12 single troops in nothing compared to 10-12 companies of 16.
Speaking of companies, I just noticed that while playing the Campaign (As that's the really the only thing I wanna do while waiting for Day 0 patch, hehe)
I think this may have been annswered before, but just in case figured I'd ask.. When you create a solo troop, can you eventually combine all solo troops into Parties, Squads, Companies, etc..? or They have to be built as a Party, Squad, or Company from the start?
thanks, and naturally continue the great work Stardock, there's a massive potential here.
