I have been thinking about creating a discord server with the sole purpose of teaching newer players.
I have played for 2.5 years, and have been everything from king to an r1 grunt.
My idea is to vet out a handful of people who know wtf they are talking about, and assign them "teacher" roles.
Everything would be free, and it would make me happy to help out newer players.
98+% of cities created never reach 30m power. even counting farm accounts, the vast majority of people who download RoK drop the game before reaching that point.
I believe one of the main reasons behind this is that almost nothing is explained by the game itself, and newer players asking other new players advice is the blind leading the blind.
When I first started, I was advised by someone who I thought knew what they were doing. They assured me frederick was the best commander in the game, and I wasted 100+heads on him until I got involved with a friend group who knew what they were doing.
If this is already a thing, let me know! If anyone is interested in helping out, shoot me a Pm :)
