Even in a battle where you have just aragorn and they have three people fully loaded you can win. You stand no chance in half the battles by letting it choose who wins so pick real-time unless YOU are fully loaded, and have the three people. In real time you start out with 60/100 CP. Short for you can't get anyone out of barracks or archery range cause they cost 60 CP. Build a bunch of farms (no less than two, nothing else matters) and you're cp will be over 200. You can get people now. You do start out with a lot of money (or whatever it is) so go ahead and build a fortress. Always leave AT LEAST one battilion at your camp or whatever with your fortress and barracks while you look for your opponets camp. After that 7 out of 10 times you will win!
