Your Alliance base defense is up and ready. The business is doing great, isn’t it? Everyone’s doing their job, getting their fair share of Gold Nuggets… It’s time to take a step further and take care of your competitors!
How to attack competitors?
- Prove your worth! — Build a Safe on your Alliance base! Don’t leave them a chance to underestimate you and your buddies.
- Get ready— Gather with your Alliance buddies and buy a lead to a rival’s base from Slick Johnny! Just one purchase from one player — and there you all go!
- Discuss the tactics — Pay attention to the features of each competitor’s base. Each attack requires unique tactics. Think of one with your Alliance mates!
- Get things done — Attack the rivals one-by-one with your Alliance mates! Work as one to reach the joint goal. Get to those precious boxes and Safe!
- Enjoy the sweetness of victory! — Bring your loot to safety and enjoy it with your buddies at your Alliance base!
That was a brief note on how an attack goes. Let’s get into more detail!
Owning a Safe is the one and only condition your Alliance needs to meet to participate in the Gold Rush. After all, only advanced Alliances can afford it. And by the way, if there is no Safe out there, where will you store the Gold you take away from your competitors, eh?
Pay for a lead
Toss 500 Silver Coins to your humble spotter to get the coordinates of a rival’s base. Any member of the Alliance can make this purchase.
Once you pay Johnny, you will have 2 hours to raid the base he shows on the map. So make sure to coordinate the purchase of a lead with your Alliance buddies!
You can get to the rival’s base the same way you travel to other locations — on foot, using energy, or on a horseback. Keep in mind that you have to raid the rival’s base in 2 hours!
Learn more about the rival’s base!
To get more information about the competitors’ base, just tap on it. There are a lot of important details stated on the location’s card!
The more the competitors, the more coordinated your attack should be. The more icons next to the lines, the higher the level of the buildings on the competitor’s base. Therefore, the more defenders may be guarding them! But this should not stop you. Probably, there is also more loot inside! Gold Nuggets, whiskey, coffee, and dynamite — that’s a lot to grab!
One more important detail — you can see the time of the day you will be attacking the rival’s base. It is pretty hard to spot an intruder in the dark, don’t you think so? During the night, the defenders’ range of view gets narrower. Use this to plan both your attack and defense!
Tip: To see everything clearly during the night, your competitors can send someone to guard the Power Station. During the night, its watchman will turn on powerful lights to illuminate the area. Your Alliance can use this tactic to your advantage, too!
Discuss the tactics with teammates!
It’s up to the Alliance to decide the tactics of the attack. Get in touch and have a discussion! Think of positions your Alliance members will have during an attack. Someone will be most effective as a scout. A few lads with okay-ish gear can take down the melee defenders. And a dude with the best equipment will make it past the most dangerous rival out there to the Safe! It’s all up to you!
Where one falls, another keeps up. You can see exactly where your fellows stopped their attack and continue it!
Work as a team to reach the common goal, and the reward will be yours.
Strike as one!
It’s now or never, fellows! The attack will last for 120 minutes total. It’s either time runs out, or all of your Alliance members complete their turn!
You will be attacking the rivals’ bases one-by-one, continuing the joint way to the desirable reward. Pick a role for each member of the Alliance to progress. Work as a team and claim all the possible bounty!
Partners, to arms!
Stick to the plan you came up with your buddies. Prioritize your targets. Be efficient. Make all it takes to make it to the Safe and get those Gold Nuggets!
Each cowboy will have 5 minutes (or even less) until the reinforcement from Silverton will arrive! So act fast, do not waste your time!
Keep an eye on your buddies’ progress by checking out the base location status! Alliance chat will be of great help. You can both communicate there and see how far your Alliance has made it. Each important step of your buddies will be marked there, allowing your Alliance to change tactics on the spot if needed!
Take all you can!
Made it through the competitor’s defenders? That’s only the beginning! It’s now time for the juiciest part of the attack — claiming those sweet rewards!
Of course, a Safe full of Gold Nuggets will be your priority, but there are other things to keep an eye on there, too. You can find a Safe and 3 types of boxes with different loot inside at the competitors’ bases. If you are producing some valuables at your base, why shouldn’t your rivals be doing so? Yes, they can have a full Mine of dynamite you can claim for yourself! And other goodies!
To make the most of the attack, make sure to:
- Check the rival’s HQ for Gold Nuggets!
- Get to the Mine to steal some good old dynamite!
- Check the barracks out, there must be some coffee hidden inside!
- Search the Saloon for bottles of strong whiskey!
|⚠️ Please note!
|The minimum number of stolen Gold Nuggets is equal to the daily Gold Mine production (without explosion bonus). In case your rivals don't have enough Gold Nuggets they will get a negative balance in their Safes after the end of the Attack.
Think of the craziest plan to get all those — whatever works will do!
If you and your buddies drank all the whiskey you had in stock, it’s a great reason to come and get some from the competitors! No coffee in the Bunkhouse? You know where to find more, partners. Take all you need to make your Alliance prosper, friend. Your actions will also slow the development of your rivals — it will take time for them to recover, and you will already be at the top of the game!
Both Safe and boxes with loot need to be carried to safety prior to their transportation! Bring all the valuables to the border of the rival’s base. While you are carrying your precious loot, you won’t be able to defend yourself. It’s too heavy to carry such a load in one arm! Make sure to clear the road ahead of you. Don’t risk taking a bullet! Nothing should stand in your way.
|⚠️ Please note!
|There is no point in carrying the items you can not store at your Alliance base! Before claiming the resources, make sure you have somewhere to put them into. Bunkhouses to store coffee, Saloon to stock up whiskey… you know the drill.
Enjoy the sweetness of victory!
Teamwork makes the dream work! All your joint efforts will pay off at the end of the attack. Complete it and get to enjoy the fruit of your cooperation!
All you get from the rival’s base will be hidden in a cache nearby until the attack ends. Once it is over, the loot will be delivered to your Alliance’s base! Get back and enjoy the sweetness of victory!
