Question Android

I'm not aware of anything separate. A Wiki, though, would surely not be much different from the actual Wiki page.

I have a player asking how to fight with his Android device. I was hoping to point him to some information. Does none exist?
What other items vary from a PC to a mobile device because it sure appears that fighting does.

Fighting is different insofar as you cannot manually fight on the app. All the details and considerations for auto-fighting should be the same though.

The majority of differences, by this point, are fairly cosmetic, but there are a few strange omissions, such as not being able to search for specific players or fellowships on the app, and some quirky differences that have no reason, such as not being able to see your coins and supplies totals as you progress through the Spire - but only when playing on the browser version.

I can see that a definitive list of differences may be useful for some people, but one of the problems is that the app is still developing faster than the PC version to catch up. There's a chance that what's on it won't be relevant for long.

You just select the 5 troops that you would like and press 'fight' then it tells you the result. There is an annoying omission, in that the mobile app doesn't seem to want to let you know the squad sizes of the individual enemies.

It really seems to me that mobile players should build their city to focus on negotiations and skip the troop making, armories and related workshops.

I disagree. It's still much more efficient to fight. I do all my tournament fighting on mobile because it's much faster. You can't manual fight, but I wouldn't have time for that anyway. Not being able to see troop sizes is an annoyance, but I don't think it makes all that much difference when you know what you are expecting.

It's hard to be only a trader / negotiator in this game. It is the easier route at the beginning but as you progress through chapters negotiating in tournament gets more and more expensive and it's hard to keep up. Plus if you are also playing in the Spire it will be almost impossible to have enough goods for both. I've been a negotiator until I was in chapter 11 and after that I had to switch to fighting because I could do so little in tourneys. And it takes a lot of time to switch from one to the other so I recommend you don't abandon fighting and you develop military buildings and AWs along with your factories.

I agree, it is better to fight, but what we so often forget to mention is that we have carefully built up advantages: Needles of the Tempest, to increase the damage of our archers, and Monastery/Sanctuary, to make all of our troops tougher, to name some early Wonders that can make a difference.
