I've been harrassing another player for a while. And I fear that he might still develop and someday fight me with an army that might hurt me... so I decided to keep on harrassing him to keep him at bay.
However, recently, my spies (I only send like 50) always report that he has 0,0,0 resources and no units at all. Very rarely he might have two squires, but when I attack, my units fight against nothing at all.
And to make things worse, his score has been going up a little from time to time, so I can tell that he's indeed working on something after all.
What could he be doing? I find it hard to believe that from my many spy missions I always get 0,0,0 resources. I suspect the following things:
- He may have a bunch of spies that disallow my spies from spying. However, if our spies were to fight, I would get a report saying so, no? Well, I haven't.
- Perhaps he has a hideout? Do hideouts hide resources from being spied?
- It would still not explain why is his army disappearing every time I attack. He only has one settlement so he can't be storing them somewhere else I guess (and I doubt he is so active anyway) - is there some kind of tactical retrat like in ogame?
