IN BD you use the blue tokens you get to buy resources and workers i have seen the videos on youtube they are really boring you should try the game yourself

just pick a world with the speed that fits you 1tick per hour 2tick/hour 3/hour

i have also played 4 and 6 ticks per hour

put your colony do the tutorial if u havent done it before look for an alliance and read guides from the forum

None of the games you mentioned are similar honestly. I love Age of Empires, but BD is a completely different monster.

You need constant actively over the course of the entire era you are playing. You can play casually, but you most likely won't ever even enter the top 30 by doing so. Some people get away with it purely because they have connections, but this is seldom the case. Essentially, the less active you are, the more active someone else has to be in your team to pick up the slack. Essentially, to play at a high competitive level, you need to be on-call 24/7. Most serious BD players exchange their phone numbers, get multiple apps that allow for free international calling/messaging, all have skype.

Once again, BD can be casual, but it's not built for a casual to do well. Those with plenty of experience in the game can get away with more casual gameplay as they know how to maximize efficiency, but it's hard to do. That usually only works if you're looking to troll around and kill some people or your teammates are really good about calling you on when you're needed and only when you're needed.

Now I know this may not sound appealing to many players xD However, I will say, you make some amazing friends playing this game as you end up spending countless hours and sleepless nights together. Many play games inbetween ticks and have chats with another about random/weird things outside of the game. But along with that, sometimes people forget this is a game and get VERY hurt over gameplay tactics/betrayals. Often times, ending friendships

Very true , the sleeples nights , the funny jokes , the roast in chats , everything is fun. sometimes those chats are more enjoyable then the actual gameplay.

I would have to agree that the skype chats are tbh the best part of the game. I met some of my best friends in the game (which makes me sound pretty sad but idrc tbqh)

About joining subs , i think subs are best for beginners (sry baz , our thinking is very different). It really helps in learning the game with you having the ability to expand & discover the map.


you are a TK player, your stance on subs is therefore not valid.
