idk… guard swapping’s fast, i guess.
troop swapping’s also okay, but i find it a bit silly as u’re wasting ur troop count and ur friendlies’ instead of killing ur enemies’. -i never swapped troops before i hit 1m mark on my troops, just in case of castle takeovers whether im on a defending side or offending one.
poking is time consuming, but if u’re doing that to ur hit-lists, u’re not making more enemies while draining their troops too.
so i guess it depends on how much time u can afford or how many excess troops u can spare.
