    Judging by your size that is a fair attack, Your units are good, I would recommend not using swordsmen for an attack, To take a city over get your academy to level 28 and research conquest and Colony Ship, then get your harbour to level 20, A great attack force is 600 slingers 230 horsemen 60 lightships and 80 fast transport ships with bunks researched, for your first city build 600 swordsmen 200 archers 500 hoplites 75 biremes and about 55 fast transports and 1 colony ship, that way you don't risk loosing a city as it has a very strong defence.

    OMG you attacked Carlos Santana! I hope he can still play the guitar.

    Apart from the swordsmen which has already been poited out, there are a couple of other things I see wrong.

    On the report you can see the morale was 68%. This means you will lose more troops than you should. This comes into play when your points are more than 4 times that of the defender. However the ghost town on the other side of the island is not subject to morale and might be a better target.

    Your attack was strong in distance, but weak in blunt and sharp. While the numbers are low, you should probably just send the slingers, especially where there are no defending troops.

    You attacked by sea although there was no reason to do so. Since you sent the attack without any lightships, you risk the possibility of finding defending navy. This will sink all of your transport ships and your troops will drown without fighting. While it is unlikely to find such a navy in a 175 point city, it is not worth the risk.

    A good point. Even a single bireme, that someone from another city was hiding there, would have sunk the entire attack.

    NO attack is EVER good, my friend.

    Violence NEVER solves anything.

    Which explains why the Full-Contact Debate Club at my high school failed so miserably.

    Priscilla nailed it. You should never send unescorted transports in an attack because the risk is far too great.

    Sorry Rooster, I have to disagree. A good smack in the jaw will stop 100% of any rebuttals, comebacks or any attempt at answering back. Solves every argument.
