Should I dismiss lower level troops

    If you don't have enough troops to keep you safe without using a shield you should only have as many troops as you can get out of your keep using the marches you have. It's a little perverse but you are generally at less risk with your troops out gathering than you would be if you had them at home. The reason for this is healing wounded troops is expensive, especially when you are talking about tens of thousands of them. You should also always be building the highest level of troops you can. So if you end up in a situation where you have more troops then you can send out you should dismiss them, starting with the lower level ones. It may be advantageous, at least for a time, to have only, say, a single march so you can maximize the amount of food you gather from your farms, but since loose food can easily be stolen that won't last for long. You will quickly get to the point where your upkeep will exceed what you can produce and collect from your farms when you need to heal, train or build.

    Agree with Kawaru though I don't dismiss lower level troops.  I try to line up PVP with low resources so then I send out the troops I care about, gathering, reinforcing someone with a shield etc. I keep the troops I'd like to dismiss in the keep and just wait for someone to attack to get some PVP points.  Rather than heal I dismiss them at that time.

    That's a good idea, . You can usually get some decent boxed resources from the leaderboard events even if you just get on the board.
