@Koovaps Thanks, wow that's awesome you have 2 3DSes going, I was thinking about but I feel too exhausted just keeping up with the 6 games on one system, 12! Yikes! (Yeah I'm still playing Find Mii II and collecting puzzle pieces).
*I bet it would really help with Warrior's Way though, that game seems to take forever to build up an army, ping-ponging large armies between 2 systems would be my idea of makin' progress.
Yes, Warrior's Way has been pretty cool building up against each other, though I've ended up with a weird imbalance between systems. I just fortified my castle to level 5 in one of them and ended up with an army at 37,000 after giving up 9,000. My other one is a level 6 castle and just got over 80,000. I've got 9 countries conquered in that one, 7 with my smaller army.
I've been lucky enough to streetpass people who own the game, which is really the only realistic way you'll get an army big enough to face the last country. I also streetpass the girlfriend every day, netting 700 warriors each time, but it's not enough. I have about 150k and I need close to 550k.
Yesterday, I beat a 250k streetpassed army. That felt good. I think I got 10k out of it.
The girlfriend only owns Flower Town. She loves it. She made Master Gardener in a week, haha.
@Guillaume Should've convinced her to spend $10 more to get all 4 games so you could just keep crushing her army for more troops
I'm up down to 40k after spending like 10k for an upgrade... but I got 2 spies now so I can easily beat armies larger than me now (though not THAT much larger). My brother got up to 120k and only growing since he just keeps crushing my army :(
Man I only have 5 countries conquered and an army of 30K, I'm stuck not being able to progress because I usually only get 100 soldiers max from any given streetpass, usually much less. Once I was lucky and found a guy with an army my size so I was able to beat him and gain about 1000 dudes, but that hasn't happened since. Oh I did see a guy with like a 600K army, he just dissed me and didn't give me a single soldier.
@deathly_hallows It's up to chance whether or not you get troops from other people who have the game. I got lucky once when meeting someone with over a million (!) troops. Ultimately he gave me 3,000 after I greeted im peacefully . I would give around 1,200 troops myself if I happen to be generous towards that person and on that day...
I've noticed that the size of countries' armies varies. On my 2 3DSes, the enemy army sizes have been considerably different. My larger army's next country (the 10th) has an army size of 115K, give or take. I assume they scale to your army size?
Oh man good hats today, there's a Super Famicom, a SNES, an N64, and a GCN hat! I just spent 4 plaza tickets in one day, never done that before!
@Shadowlink The next army has 60K soldiers, I tried beating them with like 30K and lost like another 5K. I honestly don't know how to grow your army with this game, spending play coins isn't even an option because for 10 coins you get 300 soldiers? What a joke.
Yep I think you must be right, I'm up to the final country now, and I'm facing an army of 180K (with my paltry 30K.) Yet Gui needs like 500K+. It can't scale continuously though (that would be hella broken). It must calculate the size of next force with reference to whatever your force was when you beat the previous country. It's the only thing that makes sense.
...Which when you consider how play coins work in this game, means running your campaign on the cheap is probably the smarter way to play Keeps the scaling as low as possible and then lets you overcome the gap easily with hired troops near the end.
Well bigger castle sizes net you a better deal. I can hire 4500 men for 15 coins at my current castle level.
The other big way is to Streetpass someone else with the game and beat their ass. You get their entire force added to your total...which sucks when all the people you meet have ridiculous army sizes. Sigh.
I got two spies now too, which should make the game ridiculously easy as long as I have at least half the enemy force. Set my troops so I can easily get the advantage over the enemy troop divisions, then use the spies to get the intel to launch the perfect counter attack.
@Shadowlink I've purchased every castle upgrade that's been made available (3 I think) to me and I can only buy 300 guys with 10 coins. Also, for me at least, when I beat an army I streetpass I don't get their entire army, I get a tiny fraction. For example I beat a guy last night with a tiny army of only 6K, and I got about 500 soldiers I think. I also "peacefully greeted" an army of 150K and got zero soldiers for doing that. I feel like a lot of this stuff is randomly calculated and my entire experience has been one big bad dice throw. I've made no progress in weeks.
@vids I just feel like something is wrong when every day I'm given two choices: do nothing, or invade and lose more guys, there is literally no way I can beat an army twice my size so every day is do nothing, do nothing, do nothing, do nothing. Maybe once I get 40K I could take down the 60K army, I was able to beat an army "1.5X" the size of mine before, but I don't feel like I can rely on those odds since so many things are randomized in battle.
Meanwhile I'm making tons of progress in the other 3 games, getting lots of tickets, buying lots of hats, and having a great time.
@Shadowlink Ugh, I get zero every time, it's uncanny! And when I beat an army I get 30, or 100, or if I'm super lucky 500, nothing that really adds up. I just checked and I've gone from 30K to 34K in the past 2 weeks or so so I'm making progress, just slowwwllly. Maybe this weekend I'll go to Nintendo World and try to get 10 streetpasses and see what that nets me!
@deathly_hallows Hopefully you'll get lucky and one of the people who you Greet Peacefully gives you a lot of soldiers .
The amount of soldiers you get is determined by each person's streetpass population (so outside of fighting opposing armies the max a person can give you is 3,000).
When you Greet Peacefully you either get nothing (urg!) or you get the amount of soldiers that's in their Streetpass Population. Unfortunately for you it's going really really slow. You'll start being allowed to purchase new soldiers once you upgrade more, but that's later. Once you unlock spies that will also help you defeat armies bigger than you.
I was stuck for a while myself but since then I've been rolling through the game. Still probably the most unbalanced of all the new Streetpass games.
Man, I am addicted to these games. I'm getting 7-10 streetpasses per day on the subway, so I'm getting a lot of mileage out of them. I've just cleared Mii Force, I'm 2 flowers away from master rank in Flower Town (which has grown on me quite a bit), on the last battle in Warrior's Way, and on Floor 12 of who knows how many floors in Monster Manor.
